Smooth Moves by Brain Damage

  • If this were a dream sequence, you'd hear a deep voice announce, "Brain Damage, the Toyota Hall of Famer." But it's not.
  • Mike Evans put on one of the season's standout performances with 38.00 points this week. It was the week's highest point total, as well as the fifth-most points scored this season.
  • Benched the Buffalo Bills Defense, which had the lowest DEF score on the team with 5.00 points.
  • Sat TE Jack Doyle on the bench, where he had the lowest TE score on the team with 11.10 points.
  • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just Odell Beckham Jr. posterizing opponents. He had the 10th-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 21.60 points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Sometimes 105.50 is enough. Unfortunately, the Toyota Hall of Fame has confirmed this time it's a smaller number than 151.94.
  • Dan Bailey, who Seattle Trenchers picked up this week, scored below his 10.53-point projection with 5.00 points.
  • 10 of the starters on Seattle Trenchers underperformed versus their projections.
  • A heated blanket would be a great gift for Alec Ogletree during this cold streak. He scored below his projection in six straight games after scoring 8.00 points against a projected 14.73 this week.
  • It was not a good week for Seattle Trenchers at TE, where they were beaten 15.20 - 7.20.

What If

  • If Brain Damage played Seattle Trenchers every week, they would be 4-5 this season.
  • Brain Damage would have beaten eight other teams besides Seattle Trenchers this week.
  • Had they played each other last week, Brain Damage would have defeated Seattle Trenchers 127.60 - 113.58.
  • If they played the same schedule as Seattle Trenchers, Brain Damage would be 4-4.
  • If Brain Damage had played every team in the league each week, they would be 50-49.
  • Besides Brain Damage, Seattle Trenchers would have been defeated by seven other teams this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Brain Damage, Seattle Trenchers would be 2-6.
  • If they played every team every week, Seattle Trenchers would be 49-50.

Game Notes

  • The tragedy of being an underachiever is that Seattle Trenchers knows what they should be, but reality keeps telling them that they're wrong. They scored 105.50 points against a projected 150.61 and underachieved for the sixth time this season, including the last three weeks in a row.
  • Brain Damage had their largest margin of victory so far this year at 46.44 points.
  • With 151.94 points, Brain Damage had their highest score so far this season.
  • Although Brain Damage won, it was no thanks to Reggie Nelson, who scored 5.00 points and has now scored below his projection in four straight weeks.
  • With 77.20 points, Brain Damage got the highest combined scoring output from the WR position for any team this week.
  • Brain Damage improves to 2-0 and remains undefeated in upset games this season.
