Smooth Moves by The A-TEAM

  • You put it all on the Fantasy field and pulled out a Fantasy victory! A Fantasy feeling only rivaled by becoming a real Toyota Hall of Famer.
  • Not the best, but in the conversation. LeSean McCoy ranked sixth in the league in scoring this week with 27 points. It was also the second-highest score of any player on The A-TEAM this season.
  • What do Apache helicopters, F-117 Nighthawks and Jarvis Landry have in common? They are all dangerous aerial weapons. He ranked sixth in the league in scoring among WRs this week with 22 points.
  • Even with a zero from starter Adam Vinatieri, The A-TEAM was still able to win.
  • Apparently playing within themselves was good enough. The A-TEAM won despite having only 5 of their 10 starters exceed their projected points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • It's OK, Oui. The North!. Losing happens. Not necessarily to Toyota Hall of Famers, but to other folks, sure.
  • Left Ted Ginn Jr. on the bench, where he scored 21 points and beat his projected point total by 151.2%, the eighth-highest percentage in the league this week.
  • Matt Forte, who was left on the bench, exceeded his 6.79-point projection with 13 points.
  • A nod is as good as a wink to a blind horse. Clearly, Oui. The North! didn't know what they were doing when they picked up and started George Kittle. He scored a team-worst 20.9% of his projected point total for 2 points.
  • With 2 points against a projected 8.57, LeGarrette Blount was last on the team in scoring and has now scored below his projection in three straight games.

What If

  • The A-TEAM would be 5-2 if they played Oui. The North! every week.
  • Besides Oui. The North!, The A-TEAM would have defeated six other teams this week.
  • Had they played each other last week, The A-TEAM would have defeated Oui. The North! 144 - 80.
  • If they played the same schedule as Oui. The North!, The A-TEAM would be 3-3.
  • If The A-TEAM had played every team in the league each week, they would be 59-31-1.
  • Oui. The North! would have lost to nine other teams besides The A-TEAM this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as The A-TEAM, Oui. The North! would be 3-3.
  • If they played every team every week, Oui. The North! would be 39-52.

Game Notes

  • The A-TEAM had their lowest winning score of the season with 105 points.
  • The A-TEAM has won four straight games, the longest current winning streak in the league.
  • The tragedy of being an underachiever is that Oui. The North! knows what they should be, but reality keeps telling them that they're wrong. They scored 94 points against a projected 120.13 and underachieved for the fifth time this season, including the last three weeks in a row.
  • The A-TEAM topped their point expectations for the fourth week in a row. They have now overperformed versus projections for the fifth time.
  • The margin of victory of 11 points was the smallest in the league this week.
  • Stephen Hauschka scored 14 points against a projected 8.29 in the loss and has now beaten his projection in four straight games.
  • Just because Robert Horry has seven NBA championship rings, doesn't mean he's one of the greats. Despite being on the winning team, Rob Kelley scored 4 points against a projected 7.67 and has now underachieved in four straight games.
  • Oui. The North! got smallest total score from their RB position of any team this week with 5 points.
