Erik ties Ryan, Terrance & himself for the 2nd-highest score ever with 157 points, still a ridiculous 24 points behind Terrance’s record of 181. This was the highest scoring game in our league in 5 years! There were three 150+ games in 2015, but none since. This was the most points ever scored against Jake, obviously. This game was HUGE for Erik after starting off 0-3 in the division. He gets the win over Jake and just like that is back as a contender with Henry already having his bye. Similar scenario for Chase, he gets his first division win after starting 0-3 and is just one game back. Sean is picking the right games to lose, as he’s 3-0 in division and 0-3 out.
Erik becomes the 3rd team to have three different 30+ scorers in one week. Terrance did it in Week 8, 2014 (181 points) and Week 9, 2015 (157 points). He only needed 2 more points from Kenyan Drake to become the first owner with 30+ points from 4 different players!
For the first time, there were two games in one week with a margin of victory of 70+ points. Erik’s 81 point victory (157-76) over Jake is the 8th largest margin of victory (which seems crazy that we’ve had 7 larger blowouts), while Chase’s 71 point victory (121-50) over Jarrett is tied for 15th largest margin of victory. The 107 point difference between the highest scorer and the bottom bitch is 2nd only to the record 113 point difference in Week 8, 2014 when Terrance scored 181 and Erik scored 68. There have been just two other weeks were the highest scorer was 100+ points above the bottom bitch: Week 14, 2014 when Schweg scored 146 and Jake scored 46 and in Week 2, 2016 when Ryan scored 151 AGAINST Aaron who scored 48, which stands as the largest margin of victory of all-time (103 points).
This was the lowest scoring week across the league so far in 2020 with the average score being 89.2 points.
This was the 9th time (and 2nd time this season) that Jarrett has had 2 players score 0 points. Here are the current standings for most career games having 2 or more players score 0 or fewer points:
Aaron - 10
Jarrett - 9
Erik - 7
Schweg - 7
Jake - 6
Sean - 6
Jacob - 5
Chase - 4
Ryan - 4
Terrance - 3
Chase gets his 40th game with 100 or more points before Sean does with 2 fewer seasons in the league.
Aaron loses his 4th consecutive game to Schweg, as Schweg increases his series lead 11-6.
Jacob also extends his series lead over Sean to 11-6, winning his 5th consecutive game against the Item Niners.
Chase’s 121 points were the most he’s had since the 3rd place game of 2016 (125 points).
This was the fewest points Jarrett has scored (50) since he put up 38 points in Week 6, 2017.
Jacob passes Ryan for 4th in career win percentage, and is just 0.2% behind Jake for 3rd. Chase passes Sean to move into 7th place.
Jarrett and Schweg continue to go back and forth on most career points scored against, as Jarrett has now had the most points scored against.
Jake falls from 7th to 9th place for average points per game.
Chase passes Ryan to move into 2nd place for career average points per game from the QB position. Erik passes Jarrett, so now Jarrett is in last place for career average points per game from the QB position (17.00 points). Jarrett is now last place for QBs, TEs and D/STs all-time.
With the big WR output, Chase leaps from 8th to 6th place for career average points per game from the WR position.
With another big game from Kelce, Schweg is moving up the rankings from 5th place to 2nd place for career average points per game from the TE position.
Playoff Odds through Week 6:
Teams that are 4-2 have a 74% chance of making the playoffs.
Teams that are 3-3 have a 30% chance of making the playoffs.
Teams that are 2-4 have a 21% chance of making the playoffs.
It is also worth noting that by the time Week 9 rolls around, teams that are 5-4 or 4-5 have an almost equal chance of making the playoffs (33%).
As for the 4-2 teams, the odds don’t increase (74% 4-2; 79% 5-2; 73% 6-2) until you reach 7-2. All 7 teams to start the season 7-2 have made the playoffs. But a week 7 loss would drop the odds to 53%.
