Rightfully so, as they got the highest score in the league this week and beat The Monstars 213.11 to 198.29. The Monstars failed to live up to expectations and scored only 97.7% of a projected 202.91, while Magnolia Miners scored 2.1% more points than projected (208.63). The Denver Broncos Defense racked up the third-highest score this week with 38.05 points for The Monstars.

Smooth Moves by Magnolia Miners

  • Magnolia Miners scored massive brownie points with the Toyota Hall of Fame this week. Too bad brownie points don't count as real points. Not that you need help.
  • Greg Olsen had the most points of any TE in the league this week with 22.45.
  • Cam Newton led the league in scoring with 41.23 points.
  • The Houston Texans Defense seemed to take offense to this week's projected points. They ranked eighth in the league in scoring and beat their scoring projection by 74.3%, the third-highest percentage in the league.
  • Made the right move in benching Sammy Watkins, who had 3.00 points, the lowest total of any starting WR on Magnolia Miners.

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.
  • Left Tyrod Taylor on the bench, where he scored the sixth-most points in the league and beat his projected point total by 54.0%, the 10th-highest percentage in the league.
  • The TE position was a letdown for The Monstars, where they were outscored 22.45 - 5.90 by Magnolia Miners.
  • The Monstars had 7 of their 12 starters score less than their projected points.
  • Russell Wilson fell short of his scoring projection with 17.22 points, just 66.4% of his projected 25.93.

What If

  • Magnolia Miners would be 2-0 if they played The Monstars every week.
  • Magnolia Miners would've been undefeated if they played every team in the league this week.
  • Were they resting their players for this week? Magnolia Miners would have defeated The Monstars 180.87 - 171.47 had they played each other last week.
  • If Magnolia Miners had played every team in the league each week, they would be 4-2.
  • In addition to Magnolia Miners, The Monstars would have lost to just one other team this week.
  • If they played every team every week, The Monstars would be 1-5.

Joe Namath NYJ - QB 1972 vs. Baltimore 496 passing yards, 6 touchdown passes Jets QB Joe Namath tormented the Baltimore Colts, with a Week 2 dissection of their secondary that amounted to 496 passing yards and six TD passes on just 15 total completions (15-of-28).

That worked out to a whopping 33.1 yards per completion en route to a 44-34 victory and the greatest Week 2 fantasy outing by a QB since the AFL/NFL merger.
