Power Moves (fourth place, 2-1, 287.18 points) proves they are better than their record, booting The 38th Parallel (2-1, 262.74 points) out of first after demolishing them 112.56 to 60.58. Devonta Freeman led the team with 27.70 points while DeMarco Murray scored 22.50. There is the good, the bad, the ugly, and then there is this.

Smooth Moves by Power Moves

  • Reading this matchup recap is indicative of potential Toyota Hall of Famers. You're making Power Moves look really good right now.
  • A bounty from the backfield: Devonta Freeman had an outstanding performance with 27.70 points, the best among RBs this week and the third-highest RB score in the league this season.
  • Is this your audition for head talent scout of a pro team? Picked up Jamison Crowder, who beat his scoring projection by 154.6%, the ninth-highest percentage in the league.
  • With 22.50 points, DeMarco Murray ranked eighth in scoring among all RBs in the league this week.
  • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just Tavon Austin posterizing opponents. He had the 10th-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 16.40 points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Sometimes 60.58 is enough. Unfortunately, the Toyota Hall of Fame has confirmed this time it's a smaller number than 112.56.
  • Left Dak Prescott on the bench, where he led the team in scoring with 23.52 points.
  • All that glitters is not gold. Picked up Matt Asiata, who scored 1.90 points against his projected 5.96.
  • Hate to point fingers for why a team loses, but RIGHT HERE. Ben Roethlisberger had a season-low 6.98 points against a projected 19.46 and scored below his projection for the first time this season.
  • Note to self: don't start a player when they're going to have their worst game of the season. DeAndre Hopkins had a season-low 5.60 points against a projected 12.22 and underachieved for the second time this season.

What If

  • Power Moves would be 1-2 if they played The 38th Parallel every week.
  • Besides The 38th Parallel, Power Moves would have defeated four other teams this week.
  • Power Moves would be 0-2 if they played the same schedule as The 38th Parallel.
  • Power Moves would be 6-21 if they played every team every week.
  • The 38th Parallel would have lost to every other team in the league this week.
  • Timing really is everything. Power Moves would have lost to The 38th Parallel 99.36 - 91.66 had they played each other last week.
  • The 38th Parallel would be 1-1 if they played the same schedule as Power Moves.
  • The 38th Parallel would be 10-17 if they played every team every week.

  • Despite being on the winning team, Julian Edelman had a season-low 5.20 points against a projected 7.20 and has now underachieved in every game this season.
