BC Ballers took advantage of the third-highest score by a player this week (36.30 points) from Jordan Howard and eviscerated Brady's Team 129.46 to 63.78. Brady's Team definitely shouldn't plan a trip to Vegas. Their luck couldn't get any worse as they are on a three-game losing streak. Following a 165.90 to 120.42 loss against White Thunder, Brady's Team saw their scoring drop off this week. BC Ballers (3-2, 645.12 points) climbs into third place and Brady's Team (1-4, 493.14 points) sinks into seventh place.

Smooth Moves by BC Ballers

  • If this were a dream sequence, you'd hear a deep voice announce, "BC Ballers, the Toyota Hall of Famer." But it's not.
  • Jordan Howard didn't have the best score of the week, but there ain't no shame in his game. He had 36.30 points, the second-highest RB score of the week and the sixth-highest RB score in the league this season.
  • The 20.10 points scored by Larry Fitzgerald was the fourth-highest score by a WR in the league this week.
  • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just Mike Evans posterizing opponents. He had the sixth-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 14.90 points.
  • Apparently playing within themselves was good enough. BC Ballers won despite having only 3 of their 9 starters exceed their projected points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Sometimes 63.78 is enough. Unfortunately, the Toyota Hall of Fame has confirmed this time it's a smaller number than 129.46.
  • Could have started Antonio Gates, who underachieved, but still outscored the starting TE with 7.00 against a projected 7.53.
  • Picked up and started John Brown, who scored a matchup-worst 11.0% of his projected point total for 1.10 points.
  • Whoever gave you this advice, you might want to lose their number. Picked up and started Zach Ertz, who then scored below his 7.26-point projection with 3.70 points.
  • 8 of the starters on Brady's Team underperformed versus their projections.

What If

  • If BC Ballers played Brady's Team every week, they'd be 4-1 this year.
  • BC Ballers would have beaten three other teams besides Brady's Team this week.
  • Were they resting their players for this week? BC Ballers would have defeated Brady's Team 121.88 - 120.42 had they played each other last week.
  • BC Ballers would be 2-2 if they played the same schedule as Brady's Team.
  • BC Ballers would be 22-13 if they played every team every week.
  • Brady's Team would have lost to every other team in the league this week.
  • Brady's Team would be 2-2 if they played the same schedule as BC Ballers.
  • Brady's Team would be 12-23 if they played every team every week.

Game Notes

  • Luck has not been with Brady's Team, as three of their four losses have come when their opponent scores higher than their season average.
  • Brady's Team scored 63.78 points against a projected 115.83 and has underachieved every week this season.
  • The margin of victory of 65.68 points was the largest in the league this week and second-biggest in the league this season.
  • Look here. We're gonna put any recollection of this week in a box, we're gonna lock it up, and we're gonna toss that thing in the ocean. Brady's Team was last in the league in scoring and had their lowest score of the season with 63.78 points.
  • Brady's Team has the longest current losing streak in the league, having lost three straight games.
  • What good are running backs if they are running backwards instead of forwards? The 11.20 total points by the RBs on Brady's Team was their smallest RB output this season.
  • BC Ballers remains undefeated in blowout games this season, improving to 2-0.
  • They may need to check dentals records to identify this victim. Brady's Team had their worst loss of the season, losing by 65.68 points.
