Underdog. Schmunderdog. El Diablo overcame a 13.96-point projected spread to beat Working Man 133.00 to 102.00 for the upset. They got a team-leading 24.00 points from Philip Rivers and 22.00 from Rishard Matthews. This win served Working Man a cold dish of revenge after they won a Week 2 matchup, 132.30 to 80.10. Ben Roethlisberger went bananas, racking up the second-highest score for the week with 39.00 points for Working Man. El Diablo showed some mercy in the win, starting a player with zero points (the Los Angeles Rams Defense). Working Man (5-6, 1,180.00 points) sinks into ninth place and El Diablo (2-9, 1,178.20 points) remains mired in last place.

Smooth Moves by El Diablo

  • You put it all on the Fantasy field and pulled out a Fantasy victory! A Fantasy feeling only rivaled by becoming a real Toyota Hall of Famer.
  • Special teams just got a bit more special this week, thanks to Stephen Gostkowski. His 19.00 points was the highest total among kickers for the week and the fourth-highest K score in the league this season.
  • What do Apache helicopters, F-117 Nighthawks and Rishard Matthews have in common? They are all dangerous aerial weapons. He ranked seventh in the league in scoring among WRs this week with 22.00 points.
  • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just Davante Adams posterizing opponents. He had the eighth-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 20.00 points.
  • Jordan Howard scored 18.00 points, which ranked fourth out of all the RBs in the league this week.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • It's OK, Working Man. Losing happens. Not necessarily to Toyota Hall of Famers, but to other folks, sure.
  • Left Corey Coleman on the bench, where he scored 14.00 points to beat his scoring projection by 124.4%, the ninth-highest percentage in the league.
  • All that glitters is not gold. Picked up Rex Burkhead, who scored 7.00 points against his projected 10.03.
  • Working Man had 8 of their 10 starters score less than their projected points.
  • Working Man could have used more points at WR, where El Diablo outscored them 67.00 - 29.00.

What If

  • If El Diablo played Working Man every week, they would be 4-7 this season.
  • Besides Working Man, El Diablo would have defeated three other teams this week.

  • If they played the same schedule as Working Man, El Diablo would be 2-7.
  • If El Diablo had played every team in the league each week, they would be 27-72.

  • If they played the same schedule as El Diablo, Working Man would be 4-5.

  • El Diablo scored 133.00 points against a projected 108.51 and has overachieved for three straight weeks.
  • The tragedy of being an underachiever is that Working Man knows what they should be, but reality keeps telling them that they're wrong. They scored 102.00 points against a projected 122.47 and underachieved for the 10th time this season, including the last four weeks in a row.
  • This must be how Jay Leno feels with a garage full of high performance cars. El Diablo got a combined 22.00 points from their RBs, their highest combined scoring output from the RB position this season.
  • With 29.00 points, Working Man got the lowest combined scoring output from the WR position for any team this week.
  • El Diablo is in the basement in the standings for the 10th week this season.
