It’s October, which is traditionally the month of Jake the Snake. He has a league high 63.6% win pct in the month of October.
Through week 4, teams that are 3-1 or better have a 74% chance of making the playoffs. 2-2 teams have a 36% chance of making the playoffs, and 1-3 teams have a 12% chance of making the playoffs. No 0-4 team has ever made the playoffs.
Despite being 3-1 and technically still in first place according to TPDFFL tie-breaking procedures, Ryan has scored the fewest points in the league.
Cordarrelle Patterson was started for the first time since 2014. Schweg started him 4 times in the 2014 season as a WR. He has scored 61 total points in his 5 starts.
Jake is the highest scorer of the week for the 12th time in his career.
Chase is the bottom bitch of the week for consecutive weeks, and the 14th time of his career.
The first trade of the season occurred prior to Week 4, and it was the first trade since Week 9 of 2020. The commissioner’s notepad will be introducing “Trade Watch” to track each trade’s progress:
Ryan - 12 Schweg - 30
Christian McCaffrey - 0 David Montgomery - 22
DeVonta Smith - 12 Calvin Ridley - 8
Terrance has had 479 points scored against him through the first 4 weeks, which is an average of almost 120 points per game. That pace would shatter the record for points scored against. Terrance becomes the 5th team in league history to start 0-4. None of those teams made the playoffs.
The two highest combined scoring games of this season so far occurred in Week 4.
247 - Jake def Terrance
236 - Erik def Jarrett
Both games were the highest scoring games of the rivalries.
Jacob has scored 100 points in each of his first 4 games this season. He becomes the 2nd owner to do so, as Chase is the only other owner to start the season with 4 straight 100+ point games, and he did it twice. Chase did it in 2013 with a 4-0 start, and again in 2019 with a 1-3 start.
Jarrett has surpassed Erik for most career losses. He has now lost 87 games. He lost another game while scoring over 100 points, which is his 14th career loss over 100 which is the most in the league (2nd place is 11). His record when scoring 100 points or more is 31-14 (68.9% win pct). Nine of those losses have been since 2018.
