Smooth Moves by Derek's 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 Arizona Cardinals Defense seemed to take offense to this week's projected points. They ranked 10th in the league in scoring and beat their scoring projection by 161.2%, the sixth-highest percentage in the league.
  • Took Kirk Cousins out of the starting lineup, who scored 19.56 points on the bench, fewer than the starting QB.
  • Sat TE Gary Barnidge on the bench, where he had the lowest TE score on the team with 3.70 points.
  • With 22.80 points, Kelvin Benjamin ranked third in the league in scoring among WRs this week.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Funny, the Hall provides articles you could have studied. But instead you watched Steaffon's Team cry trying.
  • This is one of those mistakes that you continuously think about for ten years. Did not start Derek Carr, who scored 24.96 points to rank fifth in the league in scoring.
  • Did not start Melvin Gordon, who beat his scoring projection with 18.00 points against a projected 9.16.
  • Steaffon's Team would have welcomed more points at WR, where Derek's Team topped them 51.30 - 6.50.
  • 7 of the 9 starters scored less than their projected points.

What If

  • If Derek's Team played Steaffon's Team every week, they'd be 1-1 this year.
  • Derek's Team would have beaten seven other teams besides Steaffon's Team this week.
  • Derek's Team would be 8-10 if they played every team every week.
  • Steaffon's Team would have been beaten by every other team in the league this week.
  • Timing really is everything. Derek's Team would have lost to Steaffon's Team 68.82 - 66.46 had they played each other last week.
  • Steaffon's Team would be 1-17 if they played every team every week.
