Smooth Moves by Dennis' Team

  • A higher score than your opponent is a guaranteed way to win each week. Thank the Toyota Hall of Fame for that valuable insight.
  • Finders keepers, losers weepers. Picked up Martellus Bennett, who beat his scoring projection by 258.5%, which was the highest percentage among the two teams.
  • A person is known by the company they keep. In this case, Dennis' Team is looking pretty darn good because they had 7 of their 9 starters exceed their projected points.
  • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just Amari Cooper posterizing opponents. He had the second-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 24.80 points.
  • Carlos Hyde scored 17.40 points, which ranked ninth out of all the RBs in the league this week.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • It's okay to regret not taking a sick day to study the Toyota Hall of Fame's articles. But it's not okay to do it again.
  • With 3.00 points, Jarvis Landry was last on the team in scoring and got only 27.5% of his 10.90 projected points, his lowest percentage of the season.
  • With 6.20 points against a projected 13.15, C.J. Anderson did not meet his projection for the third straight game.
  • A heated blanket would be a great gift for Kelvin Benjamin during this cold streak. He scored below his projection in three straight games after scoring 7.00 points against a projected 9.47 this week.
  • The WR corps couldn't keep pace with their counterparts from Dennis' Team and were outscored 42.90 - 19.80.

What If

  • If Dennis' Team played Ari's Amazing Team every week, they would be 1-4 this season.
  • Dennis' Team would have beaten five other teams besides Ari's Amazing Team this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Ari's Amazing Team, Dennis' Team would be 2-2.
  • If Dennis' Team had played every team in the league each week, they would be 15-30.
  • Besides Dennis' Team, Ari's Amazing Team would have been defeated by four other teams this week.
  • Timing really is everything. Dennis' Team would have lost to Ari's Amazing Team 102.26 - 65.42 had they played each other last week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Dennis' Team, Ari's Amazing Team would be 2-2.
  • If they played every team every week, Ari's Amazing Team would be 28-17.
