  • Weekly Grade

On top got 15.80 points from LeSean McCoy and 15.36 from Jameis Winston to sneak past Team 4 87.76 to 84.66. On top came into the Monday night game facing a 27.16-point deficit, but scored 30.26 for the comeback. It seems like Team 4 showed up to the draft and then disappeared. They have gone all season without a win. Team 4 couldn't capitalize on a much higher point total compared to last week's 81.36 to 50.04 loss against Team 2. It could have gone the other way, Team 4 had a starter score zero points (Thomas Rawls). On top (3-2, 475.32 points) climbs into fourth place while Team 4 (0-5, 350.86 points) stays mired in the cellar.

Smooth Moves by On top

  • Even if you cried trying to win, you still won. And the Toyota Hall of Fame is proud of On top either way.
  • LeSean McCoy scored 15.80 points, which ranked seventh out of all the RBs in the league this week.
  • What do Apache helicopters, F-117 Nighthawks and Mike Evans have in common? They are all dangerous aerial weapons. He ranked fifth in the league in scoring among WRs this week with 14.90 points.
  • Delanie Walker had the third-highest TE score in the league this week with 12.60 points.
  • Beat Team 4, which had their highest-scoring week of the season.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Some teams are destined to beat teams like Team 4 and move on to Toyota Hall of Fame greatness. Ironically, you are included in that destiny, because you played yourself.
  • Team 4 left the 16.00 points scored by the Minnesota Vikings Defense on the bench this week. They beat their projected point total by 137.7%, the third-highest percentage in the league.
  • On top saw their RBs beat those on Team 4 25.40 - 5.40.
  • With 1.00 point, the Houston Texans Defense had their lowest output of the season and tallied just 13.9% of their 7.19 projected points, their lowest percentage of the year.
  • It's times like these when it's important to support your players when they're down. So move the mouse pointer away from the DROP button. Sterling Shepard scored a season-low 1.40 points, 19.9% of his projected 7.04, which is his lowest percentage of the year.

What If

  • If On top played Team 4 every week, they'd be 5-0 this year.

  • Had they played each other last week, On top would have defeated Team 4 74.00 - 50.04.
  • If they played the same schedule as Team 4, On top would be 2-2.
  • If On top had played every team in the league each week, they would be 28-17.

  • If they played the same schedule as On top, Team 4 would be 0-4.
  • If they played every team every week, Team 4 would be 9-36.
