Smooth Moves by Zachary's Cool 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.
  • Devonta Freeman does not believe in running back by committee. He had the best RB score of the week and the third-highest RB score in the league this season with 26.70 points.
  • With 17.70 points, Allen Robinson ranked eighth in the league in scoring among WRs this week.
  • Zachary's Cool Team won despite having 2 of their 9 starters score zero points.
  • With 13.00 points, Steven Hauschka had his highest output of the season.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Sometimes 60.78 is enough. Unfortunately, the Toyota Hall of Fame has confirmed this time it's a smaller number than 89.28.
  • 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 sixth in the league in scoring.
  • Picked up Frank Gore, who scored 14.30 points against a projected 10.18, but left him on the bench.
  • Should have started Jason Myers, who underachieved, but still outscored the starting K with 6.00 against a projected 6.66.
  • 8 of the 9 starters scored less than their projected points.

What If

  • Zachary's Cool Team would be 2-1 if they played Space Ghost every week.
  • Zachary's Cool Team would have beaten five other teams besides Space Ghost this week.
  • Had they played each other last week, Zachary's Cool Team would have defeated Space Ghost 82.16 - 71.26.
  • Zachary's Cool Team would be 0-2 if they played the same schedule as Space Ghost.
  • If Zachary's Cool Team had played every team in the league each week, they would be 9-18.
  • Space Ghost would have lost to every other team in the league this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Zachary's Cool Team, Space Ghost would be 1-1.
  • Space Ghost would be 9-18 if they played every team every week.

Game Notes

  • Space Ghost scored the fewest points in the league this week and had the lowest score in the league this season.
  • "They ain't nothing but paper champions. That's all they are, and that's all they're ever going to be." Did Lee Flowers say that or everybody in this league? Zachary's Cool Team scored 89.28 points against a projected 92.55 and has underachieved every week this season.
  • With the loss, Space Ghost has been blown out in each of their two losses.
  • Zachary's Cool Team had their highest score of the season with 89.28 points.
  • T.Y. Hilton was on the losing team, but still had the third-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 23.40 points.
  • The win by Zachary's Cool Team was achieved despite having Ben Roethlisberger put up a season-low 7.98 points, and underachieve for the first time this season.
  • Maybe pop in the tape of the best game of the season to feel better. The Carolina Panthers Defense had a season-low 3.00 points in the win against a projected 9.74 and scored below their projection for the second time this season.
  • Birds of a feather really do flock together. Space Ghost got 31.10 points from their WRs, the second-highest combined scoring output from the WR position for any team this week.
