Champ#24AKABroncos (fifth place, 3-2, 440.58 points), like the heroes of every children's sports movie, defy expectations, believe in themselves, and kick Tu Gar (4-1, 471.76 points) out of the top spot in the league after beating them 84.04 to 74.40. They got the second-highest player point total in the league this week from Tom Brady (29.64). Tu Gar has failed to meet expectations for three consecutive weeks, managing only 77.3% of their projected points in this matchup. Tu Gar was led by the tag team of Antonio Brown, with 13.80 points, and Joe Flacco, who scored 13.00.

Smooth Moves by Champ#24AKABroncos

  • The Toyota Hall of Fame would have its eyes on you for this week's win. But the Toyota Hall of Fame doesn't have eyes. Obviously.
  • Finders keepers, losers weepers. Picked up Chris Hogan, who beat his scoring projection by 128.6%, which was the highest percentage among the two teams.
  • Put this performance on the season's highlight reel. Tom Brady led all QBs in scoring this week with 29.64 points, also the sixth-highest QB score for the season.
  • With 12.00 points, Brandon McManus had the highest score for a K in the league this week.
  • Wisely sat Ben Roethlisberger this week, who had 29.20 points, the lowest QB score on the team.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Some teams are destined to beat teams like Tu Gar and move on to Toyota Hall of Fame greatness. Ironically, you are included in that destiny, because you played yourself.
  • Left Larry Fitzgerald on the bench, where he scored 20.10 points and beat his projected point total by 105.4%, the sixth-highest percentage in the league this week.
  • Picked up Zach Ertz, who was last on the team in scoring with 3.70 points.
  • Joe Flacco, who Tu Gar picked up this week, scored below his 16.35-point projection with 13.00 points.
  • Tu Gar had 8 starters fail to reach their projections.

What If

  • If Champ#24AKABroncos played Tu Gar every week, they'd be 2-3 this season.
  • Besides Tu Gar, Champ#24AKABroncos would have defeated four other teams this week.
  • Were they resting their players for this week? Champ#24AKABroncos would have defeated Tu Gar 140.20 - 94.78 had they played each other last week.
  • Champ#24AKABroncos would be 3-1 if they played the same schedule as Tu Gar.
  • Champ#24AKABroncos would be 23-22 if they played every team every week.
  • Tu Gar would have lost to five other teams besides Champ#24AKABroncos this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Champ#24AKABroncos, Tu Gar would be 4-0.

Game Notes

  • Just like the Eagles' "Dream Team" of 2011, Tu Gar has underachieved lately. They scored 74.40 points against a projected 96.23 and has underachieved for three straight weeks.
  • The 84.04 points by Champ#24AKABroncos was their lowest winning score of the season.
  • Alshon Jeffery scored 7.70 points against a projected 10.09 in the win and has now scored below his projection in every game this season.
  • Tu Gar saw their four-game win streak come to an end.
  • Tu Gar had 74.40 points, their season-low.
  • We don't condone cheating, but this group of wide receivers might want to spray Stickum on their gloves. The 30.60 total points by the WRs on Tu Gar was their lowest WR output this season.
  • Champ#24AKABroncos won despite failing to reach their projected point total, improving to 2-2 when doing so. Tu Gar also failed to reach their point expectation and falls to 2-1 in such games.
  • In the loss, Antonio Brown had the sixth-highest WR score in the league this week with 13.80 points.
