Puppy Pile must have done something to anger the Fantasy Gods this week, as they lost to Jordy LaForge 107.02 to 82.40. These two teams are tied for seventh place with 4-5 records, but it doesn't tell the whole story, as Puppy Pile has a clear points lead, 924.06 to 827.74. Puppy Pile failed to live up to expectations and scored only 76.9% of a projected 107.14, while Jordy LaForge put up 0.2% more points than projected (106.85). When assigning blame following this loss, Puppy Pile can look in the mirror. They started a player with zero points (Allen Hurns).

Smooth Moves by Jordy LaForge

  • A higher score than your opponent is a guaranteed way to win each week. Thank the Toyota Hall of Fame for that valuable insight.
  • Jimmy Graham scored 22.30 points, the best TE score of the week and the second-highest TE score in the league this season.
  • Not the best, but in the conversation. Drew Brees ranked sixth in the league in scoring this week with 30.72 points. It was also the fifth-highest score of any player on Jordy LaForge this season.
  • Miss Cleo, is that you? The 14.00 points scored by the San Diego Chargers Defense, which Jordy LaForge picked up this week, beat their projected point total of 7.98 by 75.4%.
  • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just Jordy Nelson posterizing opponents. He had the sixth-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 15.40 points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • 107.02 seems a lot higher when you're on the losing side of it. And the Toyota Hall of Fame knows you know that.
  • Did not start Matt Bryant, who scored 16.00 points and beat his projected point total by a team-leading 109.4%.
  • A heated blanket would be a great gift for the Buffalo Bills Defense during this cold streak. They scored below their projection in three straight games after scoring 5.00 points against a projected 7.94 this week.
  • Puppy Pile could have used more points at WR, where Jordy LaForge outscored them 21.00 - 1.80.
  • At the DEF position, Puppy Pile got outscored by Jordy LaForge 14.00 - 5.00.

What If

  • If Jordy LaForge played Puppy Pile every week, they'd be 3-6 this year.
  • Besides Puppy Pile, Jordy LaForge would have defeated six other teams this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Puppy Pile, Jordy LaForge would be 4-4.
  • Jordy LaForge would be 32-49 if they played every team every week.
  • Puppy Pile would have been beaten by every other team in the league this week.
  • Timing really is everything. Jordy LaForge would have lost to Puppy Pile 111.92 - 109.20 had they played each other last week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Jordy LaForge, Puppy Pile would be 5-3.
  • Puppy Pile would be 39-42 if they played every team every week.

Game Notes

  • Puppy Pile has lost five times and four of them have come to teams who beat their scoring average in that matchup.
  • With 82.40 points, Puppy Pile was last in the league in scoring and had their lowest score of the season.
  • We don't condone cheating, but this group of wide receivers might want to spray Stickum on their gloves. The 1.80 total points by the WRs on Puppy Pile was their lowest WR output this season.
  • Jordy LaForge had their largest margin of victory so far this year at 24.62 points.
  • Puppy Pile could not extend their three-game win streak.
  • Jordy LaForge beat Puppy Pile at the top, with two of their starters outscoring the leading point-getter for Puppy Pile.
  • Not going to name names, but some people here aren't pulling their weight. Forget it, Jerick McKinnon needs to step it up! He scored 0.80 points against a projected 8.57 in the win, and has now scored below his projection in three straight games.
  • Remember when they needed to remind Forrest Gump to STOP? Well, they may need to remind this group of runnings backs to GO. With 8.00 points, Jordy LaForge got the lowest combined scoring output from the RB position for any team this week.
