Smooth Moves by Straight Cash Homie

  • 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.
  • Not quite the best, but pretty darn effective. Mark Ingram had the second-highest RB score of the week and the fourth-highest RB score in the league this season with 32.18 points.
  • With 37.50 points, Mike Evans had the highest WR score of the week and the second-highest WR score in the league this season.
  • There are rumors that the military wants to model a new all-terrain vehicle based off of DeMarco Murray. He had the seventh-highest score among RBs in the league this week with 17.85 points.
  • Apparently playing within themselves was good enough. Straight Cash Homie won despite having only 3 of their 9 starters exceed their projected points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Don't worry, Purple Bleeder, the Toyota Hall of Fame says losing isn't contagious. But it is embarrassing. And you should be embarrassed.
  • Should have started Golden Tate, who beat his scoring projection with 21.02 points against a projected 11.16.
  • Jarvis Landry did not meet his 14.02 projected points and has now underperformed versus projections for five straight weeks. He also scored a season-low 5.10 points.
  • 6 of the 9 starters scored less than their projected points.
  • Left Derrick Henry in the starting lineup, where he didn't score any points.

What If

  • If Straight Cash Homie played Purple Bleeder every week, they'd be 5-4 this season.
  • Besides Purple Bleeder, Straight Cash Homie would have defeated eight other teams this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Purple Bleeder, Straight Cash Homie would be 3-5.
  • If Straight Cash Homie had played every team in the league each week, they would be 57-42.
  • Purple Bleeder would have lost to six other teams besides Straight Cash Homie this week.
  • Timing really is everything. Straight Cash Homie would have lost to Purple Bleeder 109.58 - 72.61 had they played each other last week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Straight Cash Homie, Purple Bleeder would be 4-4.
  • Purple Bleeder would be 56-43 if they played every team every week.

Game Notes

  • Looks like teams bring their A game when they see them on the schedule. Of the losses Purple Bleeder has had, four were against opponents who topped their season scoring average that week.
  • Speed, strength, agility, vision, and intelligence. It was all on display this week when the RBs on Straight Cash Homie collectively had their best week of the season with 52.73 points.
  • What good are running backs if they are running backwards instead of forwards? The 4.90 total points by the RBs on Purple Bleeder was their smallest RB output this season.
  • Straight Cash Homie had two starters score more points than the highest-scoring starter for Purple Bleeder.
  • Not going to name names, but some people here aren't pulling their weight. Forget it, the Buffalo Bills Defense needs to step it up! They scored 6.00 points against a projected 7.82 in the win, and has now scored below their projection in three straight games.
  • The draft continues to pay off for Straight Cash Homie, which got 74.8% of their points from players they drafted.
  • In the loss, Jason Witten scored 22.70 points, the seventh-highest TE score in the league this season.
  • Matt Bryant scored 15.00 points, the third-highest K score in the league this season, but it was not enough to tip the scales in favor of Purple Bleeder.
