Burt's Squirts must have done something to anger the Fantasy Gods this week, as they lost to The Black Chappies 92.86 to 66.54. Each team fell short of expectations, but The Black Chappies managed to score 91.0% of a projected 102.07 points for the win. Free fallin' like Tom Petty, Burt's Squirts suffered a significant drop in scoring from last week's 103.20 to 92.90 loss against Whoop up. Adding insult to injury, Burt's Squirts had a starter score zero points (Sammie Coates). Burt's Squirts (4-5, 831.40 points) drops to seventh place while The Black Chappies (3-6, 772.24 points) remains mired in 10th place.

Smooth Moves by The Black Chappies

  • The Black Chappies 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.
  • Matt Ryan brought in 27.76 points, which was good enough to rank fifth in the league in scoring this week and third-best of any player on The Black Chappies this season.
  • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just Allen Robinson posterizing opponents. He had the 10th-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 13.60 points.
  • Do you put a LB or DB on him? You might have to put both on him if this continues. Cameron Brate scored 10.30 points to rank fifth among TEs in the league this week.
  • This is the bar, and this is the team jumping over it. The Black Chappies had 5 of their 9 starters exceed their projected points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Next week, be sure to ask The Black Chappies where official Toyota Hall of Fame articles are kept.
  • It was a poor performance for Burt's Squirts at WR, where they were outdone by The Black Chappies 33.60 - 7.90.
  • Burt's Squirts lost despite having only 4 of their 9 starters score less than their projected points.
  • Burt's Squirts got a zero from Sammie Coates after expecting a projected 5.98-point total.
  • Andrew Luck, who had the highest projected points in the matchup with 23.06, only scored 14.74 points.

What If

  • If The Black Chappies played Burt's Squirts every week, they would be 5-4 this season.
  • The Black Chappies would have beaten four other teams besides Burt's Squirts this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Burt's Squirts, The Black Chappies would be 2-6.
  • If The Black Chappies had played every team in the league each week, they would be 36-63.
  • Burt's Squirts would have been beaten by every other team in the league this week.
  • And they say procrastination doesn't pay off! Had they played each other last week, The Black Chappies would have lost to Burt's Squirts 92.90 - 72.12.
  • Burt's Squirts would be 4-4 if they played the same schedule as The Black Chappies.
  • Burt's Squirts would be 48-51 if they played every team every week.

Game Notes

  • Looks like teams bring their A game when they see them on the schedule. Of the losses Burt's Squirts has had, four were against opponents who topped their season scoring average that week.
  • The tragedy of being an underachiever is that The Black Chappies knows what they should be, but reality keeps telling them that they're wrong. They scored 92.86 points against a projected 102.07 and underachieved for the seventh time this season, including the last four weeks in a row.
  • Burt's Squirts was last in the league in scoring for the second time this season.
  • What good are running backs if they are running backwards instead of forwards? The 7.20 total points by the RBs on The Black Chappies was their smallest RB output this season.
  • Eat. Sleep. Beat the streak. The Black Chappies was finally able to overcome their three-game losing streak with the win.
  • Dan Carpenter did little to help The Black Chappies, underperforming versus projections for the third straight game with 5.00 points against a projected 6.40.
  • The margin of victory was the third-largest in the league this week.
  • The Black Chappies won despite failing to reach their projected point total, improving to 2-5 when doing so. Burt's Squirts also failed to reach their point expectation and falls to 1-3 in such games.
