Smooth Moves by Shake n Bake

  • Fantasy Football is a game where the high score wins. So keep doing what you have to do, the Toyota Hall of Fame will turn a blind eye.
  • Not quite the best, but pretty darn effective. Carlos Hyde had the fourth-highest RB score of the week and the eighth-highest RB score in the league this season with 25.00 points.
  • Mike Evans scored 24.20 points, the sixth-highest WR score in the league this week.
  • LeGarrette Blount put the team on his back with 22.50 points, the eighth-highest score among RBs in the league this week.
  • The 11.00 points were a season-high for Mason Crosby. The score beat his 8.47-point projection by 29.9%, which also was a season-high.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Next week, be sure to ask Shake n Bake where official Toyota Hall of Fame articles are kept.
  • DeSean Jackson was left on the bench, where he bested his expected 10.37-point total by putting up 18.10 points.
  • Should have started Philip Rivers, who underachieved, but still outscored the starting QB with 11.40 against a projected 18.88.
  • It was a beating at QB for Brockoli Cheese, as they were outscored 16.08 - 7.98 by Shake n Bake.
  • Hate to point fingers for why a team loses, but RIGHT HERE. Ben Roethlisberger had a season-low 7.98 points against a projected 20.50 and scored below his projection for the first time this season.

What If

  • Shake n Bake would be 3-0 if they played Brockoli Cheese every week.
  • Shake n Bake would have beaten six other teams besides Brockoli Cheese this week.
  • Were they resting their players for this week? Shake n Bake would have defeated Brockoli Cheese 108.42 - 98.66 had they played each other last week.
  • Shake n Bake would be 2-0 if they played the same schedule as Brockoli Cheese.
  • If Shake n Bake had played every team in the league each week, they would be 19-8.
  • Besides Shake n Bake, Brockoli Cheese would have been defeated by four other teams this week.

  • Brockoli Cheese would be 10-17 if they played every team every week.
