Smooth Moves by Longhorns

  • A higher score than your opponent is a guaranteed way to win each week. Thank the Toyota Hall of Fame for that valuable insight.
  • With 30.50 points, David Johnson led the league in scoring and had the highest score of any RB in the league this season.
  • Benched Matt Ryan, who had the lowest QB score on the team with 14.98 points.
  • Benched the Carolina Panthers Defense, which had the lowest DEF score on the team with 3.00 points.
  • Amari Cooper scored 21.80 points, the second-highest WR score in the league this week.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • 120.02 seems a lot higher when you're on the losing side of it. And the Toyota Hall of Fame knows you know that.
  • Picked up Tajae Sharpe, who scored 1.70 points, just 26.6% of his scoring projection, which was the lowest percentage in the matchup.
  • All that glitters is not gold. Picked up Eddie Royal, who scored 4.30 points against his projected 7.24.
  • This is how people lose everything in casinos. Team 6 thought their luck would change and went back to the well with Eddie Lacy. However, he scored 8.40 points against a projected 12.32 and has now underachieved in four straight games.
  • Team 6 would have welcomed more points at WR, where Longhorns topped them 35.70 - 12.30.

What If

  • Longhorns would be 5-0 if they played Team 6 every week.
  • Longhorns would've been undefeated if they played every team in the league this week.
  • Had they played each other last week, Longhorns would have defeated Team 6 110.32 - 92.02.
  • Longhorns would be 1-3 if they played the same schedule as Team 6.
  • If Longhorns had played every team in the league each week, they would be 40-5.
  • Team 6 would not have lost to any other team in the league besides Longhorns this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Longhorns, Team 6 would be 1-3.
  • If they played every team every week, Team 6 would be 21-24.
