Smooth Moves by McKerrow Crows

  • If this were a dream sequence, you'd hear a deep voice announce, "McKerrow Crows, the Toyota Hall of Famer." But it's not.
  • The 29.20 points scored by Greg Olsen was the top TE score in the league this week.
  • Cam Newton is making an early push for League MVP with a league-leading 58.35 points this week.
  • Took Eli Manning out of the starting lineup, who scored 32.00 points on the bench, fewer than the starting QB.
  • LeGarrette Blount put the team on his back with 18.30 points, the ninth-highest score among RBs in the league this week.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • 181.83 seems a lot higher when you're on the losing side of it. And the Toyota Hall of Fame knows you know that.
  • This is one of those mistakes that you continuously think about for ten years. Did not start Derek Carr, who scored 49.95 points to rank third in the league in scoring.
  • Whoever gave you this advice, you might want to lose their number. Picked up and started Zach Miller, who then scored below his 10.11-point projection with 7.30 points.
  • Urban Legends was dominated at the TE position, scoring 7.30 points versus the 29.20 for McKerrow Crows.
  • You wish you had a kicker like ours. McKerrow Crows won the K position battle, beating Urban Legends 22.00 - 2.00.

What If

  • If McKerrow Crows played Urban Legends every week, they'd be 1-1 this season.
  • McKerrow Crows would have beaten six other teams besides Urban Legends this week.
  • McKerrow Crows would be 7-11 if they played every team every week.
  • Urban Legends would have lost to five other teams besides McKerrow Crows this week.
  • Timing really is everything. McKerrow Crows would have lost to Urban Legends 177.69 - 158.07 had they played each other last week.
  • If they played every team every week, Urban Legends would be 8-10.

Game Notes

  • The 39.96-point win by McKerrow Crows beat the 18.15-point spread.
  • DeAndre Hopkins was on the losing team, but still had the fifth-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 24.30 points.
  • Although Urban Legends lost, the Houston Texans Defense played well, bringing in 58.4% more points than was projected (24.02 points against a projected 15.16).
  • No, it's okay, you don't have to get up and help us out. Despite being on the winning team, Antonio Brown scored only 9.26 points against his projected 26.28.
  • Each side failed to match their weekly score projections.
