Smooth Moves by USS Supremacy

  • If this were a dream sequence, you'd hear a deep voice announce, "USS Supremacy, the Toyota Hall of Famer." But it's not.
  • If this was college, Mark Ingram would expect to get a sleeve of helmet stickers. He ranked fourth in the league in scoring this week with 31.10 points. It was also the fourth-highest score of any player on USS Supremacy this season.
  • USS Supremacy appears to be some sort of fantasy prophet in the making. Eric Ebron, who was picked up by USS Supremacy, scored 16.20 points against a projected 11.20, topping his projection by 44.6%.
  • Miss Cleo, is that you? The 15.50 points scored by Landon Collins, who USS Supremacy picked up this week, beat his projected point total of 8.83 by 75.5%.
  • The Carolina Panthers Defense, which was picked up by USS Supremacy, scored 10.00 points against a projected 6.18, topping their projection by 61.8%.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Sometimes 114.48 is enough. Unfortunately, the Toyota Hall of Fame has confirmed this time it's a smaller number than 184.78.
  • Made a mistake in not starting Latavius Murray, who ranked third in the league in scoring and topped his scoring projection by 168.4%, the second-highest percentage in the league.
  • Whoever gave you this advice, you might want to lose their number. Picked up and started Malcolm Smith, who then scored below his 12.91-point projection with 8.00 points.
  • Born to Lose could have used more points from the TE position, where USS Supremacy beat them 16.20 - 5.30.
  • Gotta hit rock button before you can start to rise. It was a season-low 13.00 points for Le'Veon Bell this week. It was also a season-low for his performance versus projections, reaching only 59.0% of a projected point total of 22.02.

What If

  • USS Supremacy would be 6-3 if they played Born to Lose every week.
  • USS Supremacy would've been undefeated if they played every team in the league this week.
  • USS Supremacy would be 3-5 if they played the same schedule as Born to Lose.
  • USS Supremacy would be 63-36 if they played every team every week.
  • Besides USS Supremacy, Born to Lose would have been defeated by six other teams this week.
  • And they say procrastination doesn't pay off! Had they played each other last week, USS Supremacy would have lost to Born to Lose 156.28 - 133.10.
  • If they played the same schedule as USS Supremacy, Born to Lose would be 3-5.
  • Born to Lose would be 36-63 if they played every team every week.
