Smooth Moves by Brockoli Cheese

  • The Toyota Hall of Fame would have its eyes on you for this week's win. But the Toyota Hall of Fame doesn't have eyes. Obviously.
  • Made the right move in benching Donte Moncrief, who had 1.40 points, the lowest total of any starting WR on Brockoli Cheese.
  • With 9.50 points, Jordan Reed ranked fifth in the league this week in scoring among TEs.
  • Ben Roethlisberger exceeded scoring projections by 24.1%, with 21.76 points against a projected 17.54.
  • Did you use any black magic this week? Brockoli Cheese was still able to pull out a win with only 3 of their 9 starters exceeding their projected points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Some teams are destined to beat teams like Midnight Marauders and move on to Toyota Hall of Fame greatness. Ironically, you are included in that destiny, because you played yourself.
  • This is one of those mistakes that you continuously think about for ten years. Did not start Derek Carr, who scored 24.96 points to rank seventh in the league in scoring.
  • Melvin Gordon was left on the bench, where he bested his expected 10.08-point total by putting up 19.50 points.
  • Picked up Kyle Rudolph but left him on the bench, where he scored 10.60 points against a projected 5.89.
  • Acquired and started the Oakland Raiders Defense, which scored -1.00 point, the fewest of any player in the matchup.

What If

  • If Brockoli Cheese played Midnight Marauders every week, they would be 1-1 this season.
  • Besides Midnight Marauders, Brockoli Cheese would have defeated three other teams this week.
  • If Brockoli Cheese had played every team in the league each week, they would be 6-12.
  • Besides Brockoli Cheese, Midnight Marauders would have been defeated by seven other teams this week.
  • Timing really is everything. Brockoli Cheese would have lost to Midnight Marauders 106.92 - 106.40 had they played each other last week.
  • If they played every team every week, Midnight Marauders would be 4-14.
