Smooth Moves by Team Pranesh

  • 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.
  • The 29.20 points scored by Ben Roethlisberger was the second-highest QB score of the week and is the seventh-highest QB score in the league this season.
  • Greg Olsen scored 18.10 points, the second-highest TE score of the week and the fifth-highest TE score in the league this season.
  • With 12.00 points, Mason Crosby had the highest score for a K in the league this week.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Some teams are destined to beat teams like MightyMissourians and move on to Toyota Hall of Fame greatness. Ironically, you are included in that destiny, because you played yourself.
  • With 2.40 points against a projected 15.00, Lamar Miller was last on the team in scoring and has now scored below his projection in every game this season.
  • The 6.20 points scored by C.J. Anderson fell short of his 13.29-point projection, the third straight game where that has happened.
  • This is how people lose everything in casinos. MightyMissourians thought their luck would change and went back to the well with Kelvin Benjamin. However, he scored 7.00 points against a projected 9.50 and has now underachieved in three straight games.
  • The RBs on MightyMissourians let them down, getting outgunned by the RBs on Team Pranesh 18.00 - 8.60.

What If

  • If Team Pranesh played MightyMissourians every week, they'd be 2-3 this year.
  • Besides MightyMissourians, Team Pranesh would have defeated four other teams this week.
  • Were they resting their players for this week? Team Pranesh would have defeated MightyMissourians 146.00 - 76.36 had they played each other last week.
  • If they played the same schedule as MightyMissourians, Team Pranesh would be 3-1.
  • If Team Pranesh had played every team in the league each week, they would be 25-10.
