Smooth Moves by Chicken Dinner

  • Fantasy Football is a game where the high score wins. So keep doing what you have to do, the Toyota Hall of Fame will turn a blind eye.
  • We won't judge you if you want to bow to Aaron Rodgers. He ranked third in the league in scoring with 46.25 points.
  • With 21.10 points, Terrelle Pryor Sr. ranked ninth in the league in scoring among WRs this week.

  • With 18.30 points versus a projected 13.44, Kelvin Benjamin exceeded his scoring projection by 36.2%.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Sometimes 121.65 is enough. Unfortunately, the Toyota Hall of Fame has confirmed this time it's a smaller number than 150.17.
  • Missed an opportunity by leaving Matt Ryan on the bench. He scored 35.95 points, the eighth-highest score in the league this week.
  • Underdogs had 9 starters fail to reach their projections.
  • It was not a good week for Underdogs at TE, where they were beaten 14.00 - 6.30.
  • You've gotta hit rock button before you can start to rise. It was a season-low 9.30 points for Larry Fitzgerald this week. It was also a season-low for his performance versus projections, reaching only 47.5% of a projected point total of 19.59.

What If

  • If Chicken Dinner played Underdogs every week, they would be 6-6 this season.
  • Besides Underdogs, Chicken Dinner would have defeated four other teams this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Underdogs, Chicken Dinner would be 7-3.
  • Chicken Dinner would be 59-49 if they played every team every week.
  • Underdogs would have been beaten by every other team in the league this week.

  • Underdogs would be 5-5 if they played the same schedule as Chicken Dinner.
  • If they played every team every week, Underdogs would be 50-58.

  • Although Chicken Dinner won, it was no thanks to Chris Boswell, who scored 4.00 points and has now scored below his projection in three straight weeks.
