Smooth Moves by Miller Dollar Baby

  • If this were a dream sequence, you'd hear a deep voice announce, "Miller Dollar Baby, the Toyota Hall of Famer." But it's not.
  • Picked up the San Diego Chargers Defense, which beat their scoring projection by 75.7%, which led the team.
  • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just Terrelle Pryor Sr. posterizing opponents. He had the eighth-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 13.10 points.
  • Do you put a LB or DB on him? You might have to put both on him if this continues. Tyler Eifert scored 12.80 points to rank second among TEs in the league this week.
  • Rishard Matthews overachieved by 39.3%, scoring 12.40 points against a projected 8.90.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Sometimes 83.86 is enough. Unfortunately, the Toyota Hall of Fame has confirmed this time it's a smaller number than 96.24.
  • Left Mark Ingram on the bench, where he scored the third-most points in the league and beat his projected point total by 207.9%, the third-highest percentage in the league.
  • This is one of those mistakes that you continuously think about for ten years. Did not start Philip Rivers, who scored 26.68 points to rank eighth in the league in scoring.
  • Did not start the Green Bay Packers Defense, which beat their scoring projection with 10.00 points against a projected 5.80.
  • 7 of the 9 starters scored less than their projected points.

What If

  • If Miller Dollar Baby played GurleyMan every week, they would be 5-7 this season.
  • Besides GurleyMan, Miller Dollar Baby would have defeated three other teams this week.
  • Miller Dollar Baby would be 6-4 if they played the same schedule as GurleyMan.
  • Miller Dollar Baby would be 46-62 if they played every team every week.
  • GurleyMan would have lost to seven other teams besides Miller Dollar Baby this week.
  • And they say procrastination doesn't pay off! Had they played each other last week, Miller Dollar Baby would have lost to GurleyMan 114.32 - 100.80.
  • If they played the same schedule as Miller Dollar Baby, GurleyMan would be 5-5.
  • GurleyMan would be 66-42 if they played every team every week.

  • Miller Dollar Baby won by scoring 96.24 points, their lowest winning score of the season.
  • The loss snapped a four-game win streak by GurleyMan.
  • What good are running backs if they are running backwards instead of forwards? The 27.90 total points by the RBs on GurleyMan was their smallest RB output this season.
  • Not going to name names, but some people here aren't pulling their weight. Forget it, Spencer Ware needs to step it up! He scored 9.60 points against a projected 15.24 in the win, and has now scored below his projection in four straight games.
  • With 83.86 points, GurleyMan ranked ninth in the league in scoring this week.
  • Miller Dollar Baby is now 4-6 when failing to reach their projection and GurleyMan falls to 5-2 when scoring below their projected total.
