Smooth Moves by Jiffy James

  • 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.
  • Latavius Murray didn't have the best score of the week, but there ain't no shame in his game. He had 31.20 points, the second-highest RB score of the week and the ninth-highest RB score in the league this season.
  • Miss Cleo, is that you? The 21.88 points scored by Eli Manning, who Jiffy James picked up this week, beat his projected point total of 16.12 by 35.7%.
  • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just Michael Thomas posterizing opponents. He had the second-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 21.80 points.
  • With 20.50 points, Jay Ajayi ranked sixth in scoring among all RBs in the league this week.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Funny, the Hall provides articles you could have studied. But instead you watched Claudius's Team cry trying.
  • All that glitters is not gold. Picked up Tyreek Hill, who scored 4.70 points against his projected 5.92.
  • Jiffy James saw their RBs beat those on Claudius's Team 51.70 - 3.20.
  • A heated blanket would be a great gift for Jarvis Landry during this cold streak. He scored below his projection in five straight games after scoring 4.80 points against a projected 14.92 this week.
  • Even though Claudius's Team lost, only 5 of their 10 starters scored less than their projected points.

What If

  • If Jiffy James played Claudius's Team every week, they'd be 3-6 this year.
  • Jiffy James would have beaten 11 other teams besides Claudius's Team this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Claudius's Team, Jiffy James would be 4-4.
  • If Jiffy James had played every team in the league each week, they would be 63-54.
  • Claudius's Team would have lost to just two other teams besides Jiffy James this week.
  • And they say procrastination doesn't pay off! Had they played each other last week, Jiffy James would have lost to Claudius's Team 131.12 - 85.62.
  • If they played the same schedule as Jiffy James, Claudius's Team would be 5-3.
  • Claudius's Team would be 83-34 if they played every team every week.

Game Notes

  • Maybe the league is colluding against them. All four of the losses for Claudius's Team this season have come when their opponent scores higher than their season average.
  • Don't you hate that guy that always has to one-up everybody? Claudius's Team scored 116.76 points and lost. It is the 10th-highest losing score in the league this season.
  • With a combined 51.70 points from their RBs, Jiffy James got their highest combined scoring output from the RB position this season.
  • What good are running backs if they are running backwards instead of forwards? The 3.20 total points by the RBs on Claudius's Team was their smallest RB output this season.
  • Just because Robert Horry has seven NBA championship rings, doesn't mean he's one of the greats. Despite being on the winning team, Dennis Pitta scored 2.40 points against a projected 10.36 and has now underachieved in three straight games.
  • Claudius's Team falls to 0-3 and remains winless in upset games this season.
  • Jiffy James improves to 2-0 and remains undefeated in upset games this season.
  • Mike Evans scored 32.50 points, the fourth-highest WR score in the league this season, but it was not enough to get the win for Claudius's Team.
