In a week full of crazy results and scores, the Divine’s team played as expected.  Gillislee probably had his best game of the season but that’s par for the course for the Patriots.

Brady, Bell, Freeman, Green, DT, and Reed combined for only 65.68 points.  Don’t expect that to continue.  The Pigskins should be closer to the top soon.

Ok, raise your hand if you’re surprised by this.  The Knights, on paper, have one of the best offenses in the TT.  But games aren’t played on paper.  Hopefully getting Ajayi and Evans back will help.

Holy crap, I had no idea my offense played that well. I knew my defense was disappointing, but hopefully that was a fluke.

What do you mean Coby Fleener won't score 19 points a week? Andy told me he was awesome!

Great write up Russ, lots of laughs.

I'm sure Andy had quite a few good things to say about Coby.

Your presentations are always so clean looking.  I need to learn how to do that.  I love articles with numbers in them as numbers never lie.  Goon Squad still learning about IDP.  laughing

Thanks Russ. Always love this feature.

Totally flip of last year for the Knights. I doubt my offense is that bad or my D is that good.

I except both sides of the ball to regress back to the mean this week.

What sucked this week for me offensively, was the fact I left alot of points on the bench. I definately need to re-evaluate my offense! Who wants Manning! Thanks for the write-up Russ.

Thanks for all the comments. I'm glad that people actually read and enjoy the article.

And thanks to Andy for the new headers. That saved me a lot of time this week.

Interesting that 5 out of the bottom 6 in the offensive rankings were 5 of the top 6 in the defensive ranking.

Those 5 that were ranked at the bottom in offense and top in defense went 4-1 last week with the only loss coming to another team in the bottom 5 of offense/top in defense.

North Wales Knights 1-0
San Francisco Golddiggers 1-0
Maple Grove Mean Machine 1-0
Bergen Brawlers 1-0
Norfolk Bombers 0-1 (lost to San Francisco)

Also looking at averages the Defensive scoring average was higher than Offensive scoring in Week 1

Defenses averaged 138.52
Offense averaged 134.00

Seems like teams built on defense fared better than offensive stacked teams.

Curious to her from some of the veterans if this is a trend or in the past if defensive heavy teams have been the better teams?

Great point Andy. One thing to add, though, is that I'm not sure if many would say that the 5 listed teams were among the better defensive teams in the offseason. I know that Matt had 4 of the 5 teams in the bottom 6 in his defensive rankings.

I also noticed that 12 of the top 15 scorers in week 1 were defensive players.

Yeah, week 1 was nuts all around. Down was up and up was down. You should see the rankings swing wildly the first few weeks before settling in towards mid-season. After that, the big changes usually correlate to roster moves or NFL events.

Also ran across this article in reference to week 1. Here are some excerpts.

Throughout the league more broadly, teams couldn’t move the ball, standout performers were scant, and scoreboards stayed stagnant. It was just one week, and chances are good that it will prove a fluke rather than a harbinger of boring football to come... let’s dive deeper into the muck and examine stats that illustrate the giant shrug that embodied most of Week 1.

1. Through the first week, NFL teams are averaging 20.2 points per game. Since 2011, when the modern passing revolution hit an accelerated gear (quarterbacks have recorded 14 of the 16 4,900-yard passing seasons in league history in the past six seasons), that average is more than two points worse than any other year’s Week 1

2. In general, teams experienced difficulties moving the ball efficiently, averaging only 5.07 yards per play—or approximately what the Vikings and Browns averaged through all of last season. The Week 1 yards-per-play average exceeded 5.33 in each of the six other years since 2011. That difference might not sound like a lot, but it’s worth an extra few first downs over the course of a typical game

3. We knew entering Sunday’s games that a frightening amount of bad quarterback play was on the docket, and for the most part, those fears were founded. Scott Tolzien, Tom Savage, and Josh McCown, for instance, combined to throw four interceptions without a score, leading those first two arms to the bench and yielding a 50.7 cumulative passer rating for the trio. For comparison, Ryan Leaf’s career mark was 50.0.

4. It wasn’t just the Tolziens and Savages, though, who sputtered in the opening weekend. Andy Dalton delivered the first zero-TD, four-INT game of his uneven career; Eli Manning captained the most tepid national-TV offense imaginable; Russell Wilson, Cam Newton, and Joe Flacco all completed barely more than half their throws, each finishing well short of even 200 yards passing. And in the most surprising Week 1 stat of all, of the 33 players who threw a pass, Tom Brady had the worst completion percentage.

5. On Sunday, no running back rushed for multiple touchdowns, and only Matthew Stafford tossed more than two TDs. Accordingly, Stafford was the only Sunday player to reach 20 fantasy points in a standard, non-PPR league; for all of the Week 1 slate, only seven players surpassed that benchmark. Even though it focuses on fantasy rather than the actual gameplay, that stat might be the most damning. It’s tied for the lowest total since—again—the mid-1970s, and it’s especially low compared to its equivalents in recent, offense-dominant years.
