Smooth Moves by Ivory & Lynch

  • If this were a dream sequence, you'd hear a deep voice announce, "Ivory & Lynch, the Toyota Hall of Famer." But it's not.
  • A bounty from the backfield: Rob Kelley had an outstanding performance with 37 points, the best among RBs this week and the third-highest RB score in the league this season.
  • Sat TE Zach Miller on the bench, where he had the lowest TE score on the team with 13 points.
  • The 14 points scored by Eric Ebron, who Ivory & Lynch picked up this week, beat his projected point total of 6.02 by 132.6%.
  • With 20 points, Lamar Miller ranked fourth in scoring among all RBs in the league this week.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Sometimes 134 is enough. Unfortunately, the Toyota Hall of Fame has confirmed this time it's a smaller number than 137.
  • This is how people lose everything in casinos. HingleMcCringleberry thought their luck would change and went back to the well with DeAndre Hopkins. However, he scored 5 points against a projected 10.08 and has now underachieved in five straight games.
  • With 10 points against a projected 14.81, the Arizona Cardinals Defense did not meet their projection for the fifth straight game.
  • A heated blanket would be a great gift for Kelvin Benjamin during this cold streak. He scored below his projection in six straight games after scoring 5 points against a projected 9.03 this week.
  • HingleMcCringleberry was not able to win even though only 4 of their 10 starters fell short of their projected point total.

What If

  • If Ivory & Lynch played HingleMcCringleberry every week, they'd be 5-6 this season.
  • Besides HingleMcCringleberry, Ivory & Lynch would have defeated eight other teams this week.
  • Ivory & Lynch would be 6-4 if they played the same schedule as HingleMcCringleberry.
  • If Ivory & Lynch had played every team in the league each week, they would be 70-51.
  • HingleMcCringleberry would have lost to just two other teams besides Ivory & Lynch this week.
  • Timing really is everything. Ivory & Lynch would have lost to HingleMcCringleberry 118 - 111 had they played each other last week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Ivory & Lynch, HingleMcCringleberry would be 4-6.
  • If they played every team every week, HingleMcCringleberry would be 71-50.
