Smooth Moves by Team 8

  • If this were a dream sequence, you'd hear a deep voice announce, "Team 8, the Toyota Hall of Famer." But it's not.

  • Team 8 won despite having 2 of their 9 starters score zero points.

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.
  • Should have started Nick Folk, who underachieved, but still outscored the starting K with 8.00 against a projected 9.39.
  • Lost to Team 8, which had their lowest-scoring week of the season.
  • This is how people lose everything in casinos. Team 10 thought their luck would change and went back to the well with C.J. Anderson. However, he scored 6.20 points against a projected 13.29 and has now underachieved in three straight games.
  • A heated blanket would be a great gift for Eli Manning during this cold streak. He scored below his projection in four straight games after scoring 10.06 points against a projected 16.12 this week.

What If

  • If Team 8 played Team 10 every week, they would be 2-3 this season.
  • Besides Team 10, Team 8 would have beaten only one other team this week.

  • If Team 8 had played every team in the league each week, they would be 19-26.
  • Team 10 would have been beaten by every other team in the league this week.
  • And they say procrastination doesn't pay off! Had they played each other last week, Team 8 would have lost to Team 10 78.94 - 77.56.
  • If they played the same schedule as Team 8, Team 10 would be 3-1.
  • Team 10 would be 19-26 if they played every team every week.
