Smooth Moves by BushWackerz

  • With 43 points, Mike Evans ranked fourth in the league in scoring among WRs this week.
  • With 23 points, Travis Kelce ranked second in the league this week in scoring among TEs.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Some teams are destined to beat teams like Chiefs Maniac and move on to Toyota Hall of Fame greatness. Ironically, you are included in that destiny, because you played yourself.
  • Left Michael Thomas on the bench, where he scored 44 points and beat his projected point total by 218.8%, the fourth-highest percentage in the league this week.
  • Could have started Jimmy Graham, who underachieved, but still outscored the starting TE with 12 against a projected 13.00.
  • The New England Patriots Defense was last on the team in scoring with 3 points against a projected 16.37 and has now underachieved in six straight games.
  • Chiefs Maniac was faced with 2 starters coming up empty in points.

What If

  • If BushWackerz played Chiefs Maniac every week, they would be 8-4 this season.
  • BushWackerz would have been undefeated if they played every team in the league this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Chiefs Maniac, BushWackerz would be 6-4.
  • BushWackerz would be 78-53-1 if they played every team every week.
  • Besides BushWackerz, Chiefs Maniac would have been defeated by four other teams this week.
  • And they say procrastination doesn't pay off! Had they played each other last week, BushWackerz would have lost to Chiefs Maniac 283 - 190.
  • If they played the same schedule as BushWackerz, Chiefs Maniac would be 5-5.
  • If they played every team every week, Chiefs Maniac would be 66-62-4.

Game Notes

  • Looks like teams bring their A game when they see them on the schedule. Of the losses Chiefs Maniac has had, four were against opponents who topped their season scoring average that week.
  • Despite playing on the losing team, Aaron Rodgers ranked third in the league in scoring with 94 points against a projected 71.19 and has now beaten his projection in six straight games.
  • Chiefs Maniac scored 237 points against a projected 219.57 and beat their scoring projection for the seventh time this season, including the last three weeks in a row.

  • The 308 points scored by BushWackerz was the highest in the league this week and the seventh-highest in the league this season.
  • Chiefs Maniac had their three-game win streak snapped in the loss.
  • Just because Robert Horry has seven NBA championship rings, doesn't mean he's one of the greats. Despite being on the winning team, Darren Sproles scored 12 points against a projected 24.09 and has now underachieved in four straight games.
  • The draft continues to pay off for BushWackerz, which got 83.8% of their points from players they drafted.
