Cancel your winter plans, Melons, you're headed to the playoffs. With another win over The Deflators, this time by a final score of 91.36 to 74.64, Melons clinches a spot in the postseason. This week, Kirk Cousins was the key player, garnering 32.16 points. It was a bit of a drop-off from the 36.50 points Marvin Jones Jr. got the last time these teams played. Melons started one player with zero points while The Deflators also served up one goose egg, meaning both teams left points off the scoreboard. This is the smallest margin of victory for Melons in two head-to-head matchups. They beat The Deflators 127.54 to 87.58 in Week 3.

Smooth Moves by Melons

  • Melons scored massive brownie points with the Toyota Hall of Fame this week. Too bad brownie points don't count as real points. Not that you need help.
  • Shipped in the mercenaries, picking up Kirk Cousins which scored 32.16 points to lead the matchup.
  • David Johnson put the team on his back with 23.10 points, the fourth-highest score among RBs in the league this week.
  • Tyrell Williams has now overachieved in three straight games after scoring 13.00 points against a projected 6.61.
  • Starter Brandin Cooks put up a zero, but Melons still won.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • It's okay to regret not taking a sick day to study the Toyota Hall of Fame's articles. But it's not okay to do it again.
  • Left Quincy Enunwa on the bench, where he scored 17.90 points and beat his projected point total by 246.2%, the second-highest percentage in the league this week.
  • The Deflators picked up James Starks, who then fell short of his 9.56-point projection by scoring 6.80 points.
  • Of the 9 starters on The Deflators, 6 underperformed versus their projections.
  • The Deflators got a zero from Rob Gronkowski after expecting a projected 9.68-point total.

  • If Melons played The Deflators every week, they'd be 10-2 this year.
