Welcome to this brand new installment I've title the Commissioner's Notepad. If you can remember back to the good ol' 2011-2013 days when I published league articles weekly and sometimes twice a week, you will be excited for this statistic-driven series. As I review the weekly data, I jot down anything that stands out to me and will be presenting this raw, unadulterated data to you in this collection. So here we go!
Week 1 of the 2020 season was the 3rd highest scoring week 1 across the league in history (1,003 total points). It was also the 19th highest scoring week of all time (out of 127 weeks).
Jarrett loses another game while scoring 100 points. He is now tied with Aaron for the most career 100 point losses with 10.
There have been 14 occurrences of a team having two players score 30+ points on the same week. Jacob Vaiden was the 14th, but just the 3rd to still lose their game.
Jake scores 146 points, the most ever in week 1. This comes after ending last season with 4 straight losses while averaging 71 ppg. This was Jake’s first time being the highest scorer in Week 1.
Jake & Jacob’s game had a combined point total of 257 points, the 10th most in league history.
Jake passes Sean for 5th most career points (After 10 years, it’s rare that our career points or career points against standings change).
Ryan snaps a 6-game losing streak against Chase. The last time Ryan beat Chase was in Week 8, 2015, which was the week Ryan acquired Drew Brees & Odell Beckham in a trade and the two of them combined for 75 points.
After finishing 2019 with 6 straight losses and finishing in last place, Sean gets a W over the defending champ.
Terrance’s 57 points in Week 1 are the fewest points on opening day in history. This was the first time he started the year as bottom bitch.
This was the largest gap between highest and lowest scorer in a Week 1 game, with Jake scoring 89 more points than Terrance.
For the 2nd straight year, two teams lose in week 1 despite scoring over 100 points.
Out of our 9 championship teams, 7 of them have lost in week 1 following their title.
The average career points scored against for each team is 92.31 points. Ryan has an average of 88.56 points scored against him, a 4% drop from the league average.
Sean falls from 8th place to last place in average points from the QB position after getting just 12 points from Carson Wentz.
The historical average for points per start from the RB position from the league is 10.99 points per RB, not counting Sean who scores 8.75 points per RB start, or 20% less than the rest of the league!
However, the rest of the league averages 9.14 points per WR start in history sans Sean, while he sits 13.5% above the rest of the league when it comes to receivers.
Jarrett’s September woes continues, as he now has only won 30% of his games in the month of Sep.
