Smooth Moves by SMF

  • SMF scored massive brownie points with the Toyota Hall of Fame this week. Too bad brownie points don't count as real points. Not that you need help.
  • SMF was still able to pull out a win with only 2 of their 11 starters exceeding their projected points.
  • Even with a zero from starter Rob Gronkowski, SMF was still able to win.
  • With 9.00 points versus a projected 6.51, Sebastian Janikowski exceeded his scoring projection by 38.2%.
  • SMF won even though all three of their RBs scored below their projected points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Some teams are destined to beat teams like McDreamin' and move on to Toyota Hall of Fame greatness. Ironically, you are included in that destiny, because you played yourself.
  • Left Ted Ginn Jr. on the bench, where he led the matchup in scoring with 22.80 points.
  • Adam Vinatieri was last on the team in scoring with 1.00 point against a projected 8.47 and has now underachieved in four straight games.
  • Whoever gave you this advice, you might want to lose their number. Picked up and started Zach Ertz, who then scored below his 9.56-point projection with 6.60 points.
  • The 1.50 points scored by Elandon Roberts fell short of his 9.77-point projection, the third straight game where that has happened.

What If

  • If SMF played McDreamin' every week, they'd be 5-7 this season.
  • SMF would have beaten only one other team besides McDreamin' this week.
  • Had they played each other last week, SMF would have defeated McDreamin' 132.12 - 127.28.
  • SMF would be 3-7 if they played the same schedule as McDreamin'.
  • If SMF had played every team in the league each week, they would be 51-81.
  • Besides SMF, McDreamin' would have been defeated by nine other teams this week.
  • McDreamin' would be 4-6 if they played the same schedule as SMF.
  • If they played every team every week, McDreamin' would be 64-68.

Game Notes

  • At 0.32 points, the margin of victory was the smallest in the league this season.
  • SMF won by scoring 103.16 points, the lowest winning score in the league this season.
  • It was a season-low point total for McDreamin'.
  • Just because Robert Horry has seven NBA championship rings, doesn't mean he's one of the greats. Despite being on the winning team, Spencer Ware scored 11.60 points against a projected 17.89 and has now underachieved in four straight games.
  • Not going to name names, but some people here aren't pulling their weight. Forget it, the New England Patriots Defense needs to step it up! They scored 8.00 points against a projected 10.26 in the win, and has now scored below their projection in six straight games.
  • SMF took the W, even though McDreamin' performed better against their scoring projection. McDreamin' scored 78.0% of their 131.86 projected points, while SMF recorded 71.4% of their 144.52-point projection.
  • McDreamin' falls to 1-1 in close games this season.
  • SMF won despite failing to reach their projected point total, improving to 2-9 when doing so. McDreamin' also failed to reach their point expectation and falls to 1-5 in such games.
