  • Weekly Grade

Team 8 probably starts to drool when they see Team 6 on the schedule, blowing them out once again, this time by the score of 93.22 to 52.46. This is the the second time they've blown them out this year. Team 6 is an easy win for Team 8, who has an average margin of victory of 70.09 points when they play. That's larger than their 43.12-point average margin of victory on the season, which ranks first in the league. This week, Aaron Rodgers led the way, getting 23.12 points. It was still quite a drop-off from the 35.00 points the Kansas City Chiefs Defense got the last time these teams played. Team 8 started one player with zero points while Team 6 served up two goose eggs, meaning both teams left points off the scoreboard. Team 8 beat Team 6 171.50 to 72.08 in Week 3 and now averages 132.36 points against them.

Smooth Moves by Team 8

  • Outscoring your opponent is a sure-fire way to win each week. You can thank the Toyota Hall of Fame for that valuable insight.
  • With 15.00 points, the Kansas City Chiefs Defense was the highest-scoring DEF of the week.
  • Aaron Rodgers put up 23.12 points, which was the eighth-highest score in the league this week.
  • Took Gary Barnidge out of the starting lineup, who scored 1.10 points on the bench, fewer than the starting TE.
  • What do Apache helicopters, F-117 Nighthawks and Odell Beckham Jr. have in common? They are all dangerous aerial weapons. He ranked sixth in the league in scoring among WRs this week with 21.60 points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Sometimes 52.46 is enough. Unfortunately, the Toyota Hall of Fame has confirmed this time it's a smaller number than 93.22.
  • This is one of those mistakes that you continuously think about for ten years. Did not start Ezekiel Elliott, who scored 24.00 points to rank sixth in the league in scoring.
  • 7 of the starters on Team 6 underperformed versus their projections.
  • The 1.00 point scored by Adam Vinatieri fell short of his 8.48-point projection, the fourth straight game where that has happened.
  • This is how people lose everything in casinos. Team 6 thought their luck would change and went back to the well with Spencer Ware. However, he scored 9.60 points against a projected 15.26 and has now underachieved in four straight games.

What If

  • Team 8 would be 9-3 if they played Team 6 every week.
  • Besides Team 6, Team 8 would have defeated three other teams this week.
  • Were they resting their players for this week? Team 8 would have defeated Team 6 96.04 - 78.40 had they played each other last week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Team 6, Team 8 would be 3-7.
  • Team 8 would be 68-40 if they played every team every week.
  • Team 6 would have lost to seven other teams besides Team 8 this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Team 8, Team 6 would be 4-6.
  • Team 6 would be 40-68 if they played every team every week.

Game Notes

  • The RBs on Team 8 collectively had their worst week of the season with only 15.10 points.
  • After the beating, Team 6 is still winless in blowouts this season with a record of 0-5.
  • Team 8 ups their record in blowout matchups to 5-0.
  • Team 6 got 9.60 points from their RBs this week, the lowest combined scoring output from the RB position for any team this week.
  • The margin of victory of 40.76 points was the second-highest margin in the league this week.
  • Team 8 was able to win despite putting up the smallest point total of any winning team in the league this week.
  • The 52.46 points put up by Team 6 ranked ninth in the league this week.
  • Kirk Cousins scored 30.16 points, the 10th-highest QB score in the league this season, but it was not enough to get Team 6 the win.
