Christopher's Team got 24.68 points from Philip Rivers and 24.00 from Ezekiel Elliott, edging Dirt Stars 101.88 to 99.32. While Dirt Stars (7-5) is only a game back of Christopher's Team (8-4), it has a lot to do with luck because total points tells a different story, 1,338.60 to 1,163.78. This close win was revenge for a Week 3 118.20 to 95.44 comeback by Dirt Stars. Following a zero-point effort from Julius Thomas, Dirt Stars was left to wonder "what might have been?". Finally, both teams earned a playoff berth this week.

Smooth Moves by Christopher's Team

  • The Toyota Hall of Fame would have its eyes on you for this week's win. But the Toyota Hall of Fame doesn't have eyes. Obviously.
  • Sat Randall Cobb, who scored fewer points than any WR in the starting lineup with 4.10.
  • Philip Rivers has now overachieved in three straight games after scoring 24.68 points against a projected 16.99.
  • Ezekiel Elliott put the team on his back with 24.00 points, the third-highest score among RBs in the league this week.
  • Do you put a LB or DB on him? You might have to put both on him if this continues. Kyle Rudolph scored 6.40 points to rank fifth among TEs in the league this week.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Somehow, all of your players had two bye weeks this week. The Toyota Hall of Fame calls that a bye bye week. Yes, it's a bad joke, but it's still better than your score.
  • Did not start Davante Adams, who scored 23.30 points and beat his projected point total by 300.3%, which was the highest percentage in the league.
  • Matt Prater, who was left on the bench, exceeded his 6.79-point projection with 12.00 points.
  • the Arizona Cardinals Defense was last in the matchup in scoring with 1.00 point against a projected 8.23 and has now underachieved in five straight games.
  • A heated blanket would be a great gift for Jay Ajayi during this cold streak. He scored below his projection in three straight games after scoring 11.60 points against a projected 19.30 this week.

What If

  • If Christopher's Team played Dirt Stars every week, they'd be 7-5 this year.
  • Besides Dirt Stars, Christopher's Team would have defeated six other teams this week.
  • Christopher's Team would be 6-4 if they played the same schedule as Dirt Stars.
  • If Christopher's Team had played every team in the league each week, they would be 64-44.
  • Dirt Stars would have lost to just two other teams besides Christopher's Team this week.
  • Timing really is everything. Christopher's Team would have lost to Dirt Stars 95.34 - 93.08 had they played each other last week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Christopher's Team, Dirt Stars would be 5-5.
  • If they played every team every week, Dirt Stars would be 48-60.

Game Notes

  • In the loss, Aaron Rodgers ranked fifth in the league in scoring with 30.12 points against a projected 21.29 and has now overachieved in six straight games.
  • Christopher's Team was able to cover the 1.10-point spread in the win.
  • This must be how Jay Leno feels with a garage full of high performance cars. Dirt Stars got a combined 40.90 points from their RBs, their highest combined scoring output from the RB position this season.
  • Dirt Stars could not extend their five-game win streak.
  • In the loss, Matt Bryant scored 9.00 points against a projected 5.93 and has now overachieved in three straight games.
  • Theo Riddick did little to help Christopher's Team, underperforming versus projections for the third straight game with 5.80 points against a projected 10.74.
