Smooth Moves by Sackooooo

  • A higher score than your opponent is a guaranteed way to win each week. Thank the Toyota Hall of Fame for that valuable insight.
  • Is this your audition for head talent scout of a pro team? Picked up Rishard Matthews, who beat his scoring projection by 168.7%, the sixth-highest percentage in the league.
  • With 13.50 points, Antonio Gates, who Sackooooo picked up this week, beat his 8.41-point projection by 60.5%.
  • With 23.88 points, Dak Prescott scored the most points in a matchup for the first time this season.
  • DeMarco Murray put the team on his back with 14.00 points, the 10th-highest score among RBs in the league this week.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Somehow, all of your players had two bye weeks this week. The Toyota Hall of Fame calls that a bye bye week. Yes, it's a bad joke, but it's still better than your score.
  • The Atlanta Falcons Defense, which Down with the Crown picked up this week, scored below their 8.14-point projection with 6.00 points.
  • With 4.50 points against a projected 9.71, Brandon Marshall did not meet his projection for the fourth straight game.
  • Sackooooo had a better day at the QB position, topping Down with the Crown 23.88 - 7.66.
  • Gotta hit rock button before you can start to rise. It was a season-low 7.66 points for Derek Carr this week. It was also a season-low for his performance versus projections, reaching only 42.0% of a projected point total of 18.25.

What If

  • If Sackooooo played Down with the Crown every week, they'd be 6-3 this year.
  • Besides Down with the Crown, Sackooooo would have beaten only two other teams this week.
  • Had they played each other last week, Sackooooo would have defeated Down with the Crown 112.50 - 102.52.
  • Sackooooo would be 5-3 if they played the same schedule as Down with the Crown.
  • Sackooooo would be 35-46 if they played every team every week.
  • Down with the Crown would have lost to seven other teams besides Sackooooo this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Sackooooo, Down with the Crown would be 5-3.
  • If they played every team every week, Down with the Crown would be 33-48.

Game Notes

  • Looks like teams bring their A game when they see them on the schedule. Of the losses Down with the Crown has had, four were against opponents who topped their season scoring average that week.
  • Eat. Sleep. Conquer. Repeat. Sackooooo has won five games in a row, the longest current winning streak in the league.
  • With the loss, Down with the Crown has the longest losing streak in the league, stretching back four straight games.
  • Sackooooo covered the 1.99-point spread, winning by 20.82 points.
  • With a combined 32.80 points from their WRs, Sackooooo got their highest combined scoring output from the WR position this season.
  • Not going to name names, but some people here aren't pulling their weight. Forget it, Christine Michael needs to step it up! He scored 6.10 points against a projected 12.27 in the win, and has now scored below his projection in three straight games.
  • Just because Robert Horry has seven NBA championship rings, doesn't mean he's one of the greats. Despite being on the winning team, Willie Snead scored 3.60 points against a projected 9.23 and has now underachieved in five straight games.
  • Jimmy Graham scored 22.30 points, the second-highest TE score in the league this season, but it was not enough to tip the scales in favor of Down with the Crown.
