Smooth Moves by Dik Bikum

  • 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.
  • Russell Wilson ranked 10th in the league in scoring with 27.28 points, his highest output of the season.
  • Dik Bikum was still able to pull out a win with only 1 of their 9 starters exceeding their projected points.
  • Take that, you RB-loving traditionalists! Dik Bikum won even though both of their RBs scored below their projected points.

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.
  • Well, that's embarrassing. Left Tyrod Taylor on the bench, where he ranked eighth in the league in scoring with 27.86 points.
  • Left Mike Wallace on the bench, where he scored 21.40 points, exceeding his scoring projection by 82.9%, the highest percentage in the matchup.
  • Got beat by Dik Bikum even though they had their lowest-scoring week of the season.
  • With 5.00 points against a projected 7.94, the Buffalo Bills Defense did not meet their projection for the fourth straight game.

What If

  • If Dik Bikum played Goshawk every week, they'd be 7-2 this year.
  • Dik Bikum would have beaten only one other team besides Goshawk this week.
  • Had they played each other last week, Dik Bikum would have defeated Goshawk 120.12 - 78.98.
  • Dik Bikum would be 4-4 if they played the same schedule as Goshawk.
  • If Dik Bikum had played every team in the league each week, they would be 48-51.
  • Besides Dik Bikum, Goshawk would have been defeated by nine other teams this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Dik Bikum, Goshawk would be 0-8.
  • Goshawk would be 21-78 if they played every team every week.

Game Notes

  • When the going gets tough, the tough are supposed to get going. However, Goshawk stalled out again and extended their losing streak to four games.
  • The 79.38 points scored by Dik Bikum is the lowest winning score in the league this season.
  • Goshawk scored 76.60 points against a projected 83.25 and underachieved for the sixth time this season, including the last three weeks in a row.
  • The 2.78-point win by Dik Bikum failed to cover the 43.06-point spread.
  • Despite being on the winning team, DeVante Parker had a season-low 1.80 points against a projected 14.26 and has now underachieved in five straight games.
  • The win by Dik Bikum snapped a four-game losing streak.
  • What good are running backs if they are running backwards instead of forwards? The 13.30 total points by the RBs on Dik Bikum was their smallest RB output this season.
  • Just because Robert Horry has seven NBA championship rings, doesn't mean he's one of the greats. Despite being on the winning team, Dennis Pitta scored 2.40 points against a projected 11.71 and has now underachieved in three straight games.
