Smooth Moves by Team 8

  • A higher score than your opponent is a guaranteed way to win each week. Thank the Toyota Hall of Fame for that valuable insight.
  • Aaron Rodgers put up 21.24 points, which was the fifth-highest score in the league this week.
  • 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 15.40 points.
  • DeMarco Murray scored 15.20 points, which ranked eighth out of all the RBs in the league this week.
  • With 11.00 points scored versus a projected 8.14, the Kansas City Chiefs Defense scored more points than projected for three straight games.

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.
  • Did not start Nick Folk, who scored 11.00 points and beat his projected point total by a team-leading 51.8%.
  • Left Blake Bortles on the bench, where he led the team in scoring with 15.58 points.
  • Should have started Willie Snead, who underachieved, but still had the most points of any WR on the team with 8.50 against a projected 8.97.
  • The Seattle Seahawks Defense scored the fewest points in the league this week with a season-low -3.00 points.

What If

  • Team 8 would be 11-3 if they played Team 10 every week.
  • Team 8 would have beaten six other teams besides Team 10 this week.
  • Were they resting their players for this week? Team 8 would have defeated Team 10 113.86 - 56.20 had they played each other last week.
  • Team 8 would be 11-1 if they played the same schedule as Team 10.
  • Team 8 would be 83-43 if they played every team every week.
  • Team 10 would have been beaten by every other team in the league this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Team 8, Team 10 would be 4-8.
  • If they played every team every week, Team 10 would be 31-95.

Game Notes

  • Team 8 had four starters who scored more points than the highest-scoring starter for Team 10.
  • Team 10 scored the fewest points in the league this week and had the lowest score in the league this season.
  • The margin of victory of 63.02 points was the largest in the league this week and eighth-biggest in the league this season.
  • Just because Robert Horry has seven NBA championship rings, doesn't mean he's one of the greats. Despite being on the winning team, Doug Baldwin scored 4.60 points against a projected 9.12 and has now underachieved in three straight games.
  • With the win, Team 8 remains undefeated in blowout games this season with a record of 7-0.
  • The win was the third in a row for Team 8.

In the other 136 regular season games played in Ismail’s career, he’d score more than one touchdown in a game just one more time, and he only recorded seven other games of 100-plus receiving yards.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
