Underdog. Schmunderdog. Jesse's Team overcame a 15.87-point projected spread to beat Samantha's Team 75.10 to 54.98 for the upset. They benefited from a team-leading 24.60 points from LeSean McCoy and 13.80 from Jimmy Graham. While Samantha's Team (5-6) is only a game back of Jesse's Team (6-5), it has a lot to do with luck because total points tells a different story, 812.40 to 733.94. This win served Samantha's Team a cold dish of revenge after they won a Week 2 matchup, 76.96 to 50.46.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • In Fantasy Football, you win some, you lose some. Not for Toyota Hall of Famers. They mostly just win. But still.
  • The 3.60 points scored by Rob Gronkowski fell short of his 12.83-point projection, the fourth straight game where that has happened.
  • With 2.60 points against a projected 8.59, DeVante Parker did not meet his projection for the fifth straight game.
  • This is how people lose everything in casinos. Samantha's Team thought their luck would change and went back to the well with Kelvin Benjamin. However, he scored 2.00 points against a projected 6.95 and has now underachieved in four straight games.
  • Samantha's Team tried to fight through 2 of their 9 starters getting zeros, but could not overcome it.
