Smooth Moves by Fioreous1

  • 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.
  • Finders keepers, losers weepers. Picked up DuJuan Harris, who beat his scoring projection by 106.8%, which was the highest percentage among the two teams.
  • The 14.60 points by Cole Beasley topped a projected 8.45, extending his overachievement streak to four weeks.
  • The 13.20 points scored by Terrelle Pryor Sr. outpaced his 9.24-point scoring projection by 42.9%.
  • Apparently playing within themselves was good enough. Fioreous1 won despite having only 5 of their 10 starters exceed their projected points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Sometimes 97.52 is enough. Unfortunately, the Toyota Hall of Fame has confirmed this time it's a smaller number than 113.70.
  • The 1.60 points scored by Don Jackson fell short of his 6.21-point projection, the third straight game where that has happened.
  • Hand of God had 2 of their 10 starters score zero points.
  • Hand of God lost despite having only 4 of their 10 starters score less than their projected points.
  • With 8.10 points, Demaryius Thomas scored only 62.6% of his 12.94 projected point total.

What If

  • If Fioreous1 played Hand of God every week, they would be 5-4 this season.
  • Besides Hand of God, Fioreous1 would have defeated six other teams this week.
  • Were they resting their players for this week? Fioreous1 would have defeated Hand of God 91.78 - 83.10 had they played each other last week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Hand of God, Fioreous1 would be 2-6.
  • If Fioreous1 had played every team in the league each week, they would be 59-58.
  • Hand of God would have lost to nine other teams besides Fioreous1 this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Fioreous1, Hand of God would be 4-4.
  • Hand of God would be 48-69 if they played every team every week.

Game Notes

  • Even though Hand of God lost, they had two players score higher than the leading scorer for Fioreous1.
  • Four of the five losses for Hand of God this season have come when their opponent scores higher than their season average.
  • Fioreous1 has won six straight games, the longest current winning streak in the league.
  • The loss is the third straight for Hand of God and extends the longest current losing streak in the league.
  • The tragedy of being an underachiever is that Hand of God knows what they should be, but reality keeps telling them that they're wrong. They scored 97.52 points against a projected 106.46 and underachieved for the sixth time this season, including the last three weeks in a row.
  • Although Fioreous1 won, it was no thanks to Brandon Marshall, who scored 7.50 points and has now scored below his projection in four straight weeks.
  • Fioreous1 got the best total score from their WRs of any team this week with 48.30 points.
