Smooth Moves by DirtyDeuce

  • A higher score than your opponent is a guaranteed way to win each week. Thank the Toyota Hall of Fame for that valuable insight.
  • DirtyDeuce saw their fifth-largest single-week point total by a player this season with Latavius Murray scoring 33.70 points. The score was also high enough to rank sixth in the league.
  • DirtyDeuce was still able to pull out a win with only 2 of their 9 starters exceeding their projected points.
  • With 18.50 points, Antonio Gates ranked fourth in the league this week in scoring among TEs.
  • DirtyDeuce won even though all three of their WRs scored below their projected points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Sometimes 111.10 is enough. Unfortunately, the Toyota Hall of Fame has confirmed this time it's a smaller number than 116.40.
  • Mr. Football could have used more points from the TE position, where DirtyDeuce beat them 18.50 - 5.30.
  • The 1.50 points scored by Travis Benjamin was a season-low for both scoring and for his performance against projections. He reached only 12.1% of his 12.40 projected points this week.
  • Mr. Football had 6 of their 9 starters score less than their projected points.
  • With 4.00 points versus a projected 8.90, the Philadephia Eagles Defense scored only 44.9% of their projected point total.

What If

  • DirtyDeuce would be 4-5 if they played Mr. Football every week.
  • Besides Mr. Football, DirtyDeuce would have defeated six other teams this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Mr. Football, DirtyDeuce would be 2-6.
  • If DirtyDeuce had played every team in the league each week, they would be 37-62.
  • Mr. Football would have lost to five other teams besides DirtyDeuce this week.
  • And they say procrastination doesn't pay off! Had they played each other last week, DirtyDeuce would have lost to Mr. Football 107.78 - 87.28.
  • Mr. Football would be 5-3 if they played the same schedule as DirtyDeuce.
  • If they played every team every week, Mr. Football would be 41-58.

Game Notes

  • Five of the six losses for Mr. Football this season have come when their opponent scores higher than their season average.
  • The tragedy of being an underachiever is that DirtyDeuce knows what they should be, but reality keeps telling them that they're wrong. They scored 116.40 points against a projected 132.66 and underachieved for the seventh time this season, including the last three weeks in a row.
  • DirtyDeuce won by scoring 116.40 points, their lowest winning score of the season.
  • The margin of victory for the matchup ended up being the smallest in the league this week at 5.30 points.
  • DirtyDeuce won even though Mr. Football performed better against their scoring projection. Mr. Football scored 91.8% of their 121.00 projected points, while DirtyDeuce recorded 87.7% of their 132.66-point projection.
  • DirtyDeuce improves to 1-1 in close games this season.
  • With the loss, Mr. Football falls to 2-1 in close games this season.
  • The Toyota Hall of Fame recommends Mr. Football go on a WINNING streak, instead of a LOSING streak. That one word makes a surprising amount of difference.
