Smooth Moves by Team BLT

  • 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.
  • Special teams just got even more special this week, thanks to Matt Bryant. His 16 points was the highest total among kickers for the week and the fifth-highest K score in the league this season.
  • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just Michael Thomas posterizing opponents. He had the fourth-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 24 points.
  • Do you put a LB or DB on him? You might have to put both on him if this continues. Antonio Gates scored 18 points to rank third among TEs in the league this week.
  • Even with only 3 of the 10 starters scoring more than their projection, Team BLT was still able to win.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • 135 seems a lot higher when you're on the losing side of it. And the Toyota Hall of Fame knows you know that.
  • Well, that's embarrassing. Left Mark Ingram on the bench, where he ranked eighth in the league in scoring with 30 points.
  • Picked up Chris Boswell, who was last in the matchup in points scored with 2.
  • Go Bears! had 8 of their 10 starters score less than their projected points.
  • With 6 points against a projected 13.30, Christine Michael did not meet his projection for the third straight game.

What If

  • If Team BLT played Go Bears! every week, they'd be 4-5 this year.
  • Team BLT would have beaten six other teams besides Go Bears! this week.
  • Team BLT would be 5-3 if they played the same schedule as Go Bears!.
  • If Team BLT had played every team in the league each week, they would be 49-32.
  • Besides Team BLT, Go Bears! would have been defeated by three other teams this week.
  • And they say procrastination doesn't pay off! Had they played each other last week, Team BLT would have lost to Go Bears! 163 - 129.
  • If they played the same schedule as Team BLT, Go Bears! would be 5-2-1.
  • If they played every team every week, Go Bears! would be 59-21-1.

Game Notes

  • Go Bears! could not extend their five-game win streak.
  • Go Bears! got a combined 9 points from their RBs, their lowest combined scoring output from the RB position this season.
  • Team BLT is now 2-2 when failing to reach their projection and Go Bears! falls to 1-2 when scoring below their projected total.
  • Go Bears! had the highest losing score in the league this week with 122 points.
  • Matt Ryan did what he could in the loss for Go Bears!. He scored 35 points, the second-highest score in the league this week.
  • Go Bears! had a lower score this week (122 points) than their season average of 148.78 points.
  • In the loss, Terrelle Pryor Sr. scored 15 points against a projected 10.90 and exceeded his scoring projection by 37.6%.
  • Team BLT might want to see a chiropractor, because they were carrying Jarvis Landry on their back the whole week. He was on the winning team, but only scored 6 points against his projected 17.36.
