Smooth Moves by Kyle's Optimal Team

  • 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 Denver Broncos Defense scored 22.00 points and beat their scoring projection by 134.7%, which led the matchup.
  • Justin Tucker exceeded scoring projections by 52.9%, with 15.00 points against a projected 9.81.
  • With only 4 of their 9 starters beating their projected points, Kyle's Optimal Team was still able to win.
  • Take that, you RB-loving traditionalists! Kyle's Optimal Team won even though both of their RBs scored below their projected points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Sometimes 71.42 is enough. Unfortunately, the Toyota Hall of Fame has confirmed this time it's a smaller number than 104.72.
  • Left Nick Folk on the bench, where he scored 13.00 points and surpassed his scoring projection by 72.2%, the highest percentage of any player on the team.
  • All that glitters is not gold. Picked up Jason Myers, who scored 2.00 points against his projected 7.23.
  • Golden Tate was last in the matchup in scoring with 1.30 points.
  • The WRs on Space Ghost let them down, resulting in a 30.30 - 9.20 difference at the position.

  • Kyle's Optimal Team would be 1-1 if they played Space Ghost every week.

  • Kyle's Optimal Team would be 12-6 if they played every team every week.
  • Besides Kyle's Optimal Team, Space Ghost would have been defeated by six other teams this week.
  • Timing really is everything. Kyle's Optimal Team would have lost to Space Ghost 110.74 - 93.22 had they played each other last week.
  • Space Ghost would be 9-9 if they played every team every week.
