Smooth Moves by Rose To Power

  • The Toyota Hall of Fame would have its eyes on you for this week's win. But the Toyota Hall of Fame doesn't have eyes. Obviously.
  • DeMarco Murray didn't have the best score of the week, but there ain't no shame in his game. He had 30.50 points, the third-highest RB score of the week and the sixth-highest RB score in the league this season.
  • Even with only 3 of the 8 starters scoring more than their projection, Rose To Power was still able to win.
  • Both of the RBs starting for Rose To Power outperformed their point expectations.
  • Rose To Power managed their team well, winning with three players on the bench and not playing this week.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • 108.00 seems a lot higher when you're on the losing side of it. And the Toyota Hall of Fame knows you know that.
  • Brandin Cooks did not meet his 16.53-point projection this week, the second time that's happened this season. His 3.90 points were also a season-low.
  • Hate to point fingers for why a team loses, but RIGHT HERE. Eric Decker had a season-low 4.10 points against a projected 13.80 and scored below his projection for the second time this season.
  • Note to self: don't start a player when they're going to have their worst game of the season. Blair Walsh had a season-low 5.00 points against a projected 9.02 and underachieved for the second time this season.
  • 4 of the 7 starters scored less than their projected points.

What If

  • If Rose To Power played Wolfpack every week, they'd be 3-0 this year.
  • Besides Wolfpack, Rose To Power would have defeated four other teams this week.
  • Were they resting their players for this week? Rose To Power would have defeated Wolfpack 128.62 - 104.22 had they played each other last week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Wolfpack, Rose To Power would be 0-2.
  • If Rose To Power had played every team in the league each week, they would be 22-11.
  • Wolfpack would have lost to nine other teams besides Rose To Power this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Rose To Power, Wolfpack would be 2-0.
  • If they played every team every week, Wolfpack would be 13-20.
