  • Weekly Grade

Nicholas's Nice Team (second place, 2-1, 324.94 points) kicked Levi's Team (2-1, 245.00 points) out of first place after dismantling them 121.88 to 38.30, proving they are better than their record (but not better than "Thriller," which is a record no one could surpass despite many attempts to Beat It). Nicholas's Nice Team also put up the second-highest point total in the league this week. These two teams are tied for second place with 2-1 records, but it doesn't tell the whole story, as Nicholas's Nice Team has a clear points lead, 324.94 to 245.00. This was a grand beatdown, with the 83.58-point margin of victory being the highest recorded in the league this season. Adding insult to injury, Levi's Team had two starters score zero points (Keenan Allen and Thomas Rawls).

Smooth Moves by Nicholas's Nice Team

  • If this were a dream sequence, you'd hear a deep voice announce, "Nicholas's Nice Team, the Toyota Hall of Famer." But it's not.
  • The sixth-highest RB score of the week and the ninth-highest RB score of the season came from LeGarrette Blount, who scored 22.50 points.
  • The best week among all the bellcows: Devonta Freeman had an outstanding performance with 26.70 points, the best among RBs this week and the third-highest RB score in the league this season.
  • A very special special-teamer: The 17.00 points scored by Justin Tucker was the best K score of the week and is the second-highest K score in the league this season.
  • Those were the projections? We thought that was the starting point. 5 of the 9 starters on Nicholas's Nice Team exceeded their projected points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • 121.88 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 Jameis Winston, who scored 26.50 points to rank fifth in the league in scoring.
  • Left Emmanuel Sanders on the bench, where he scored the ninth-most points in the league and beat his projected point total by 240.0%, the fourth-highest percentage in the league.
  • Levi's Team left the 22.00 points scored by the Buffalo Bills Defense on the bench this week. They beat their projected point total by 286.9%, the second-highest percentage in the league.
  • Nicholas's Nice Team saw their RBs beat those on Levi's Team 49.20 - 6.40.

What If

  • If Nicholas's Nice Team played Levi's Team every week, they'd be 2-1 this season.
  • Nicholas's Nice Team would have beaten seven other teams besides Levi's Team this week.
  • Were they resting their players for this week? Nicholas's Nice Team would have defeated Levi's Team 122.06 - 107.32 had they played each other last week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Levi's Team, Nicholas's Nice Team would be 1-1.
  • Nicholas's Nice Team would be 16-11 if they played every team every week.
  • Levi's Team would have lost to every other team in the league this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Nicholas's Nice Team, Levi's Team would be 1-1.
