Another reason Yahoo! is better than ESPN

This is a pretty cool new feature to Yahoo leagues, an automated recap story for every game.

Ruz Rocks With Myself, Makes Early-Season Statement


Ruz (1-0) 119.62

With Myself (0-1) 77.36

Ruz took advantage of 21.10 points from Kevin Smith, drubbing With Myself, 119.62 - 77.36. Ruz beat their projections and scored 19.4% more points than projected (100.17). With Myself scored only 83.4% of a projected 92.81 points. With Myself was led by Drew Brees with 21.56 points and Stevie Johnson who scored 11.50. Ruz (1-0) starts off the campaign in third place while With Myself (0-1) debuts in 10th place.

Ruz Smooth Moves
•The 14.50 points scored by Jimmy Graham was the highest TE score in the league this week.
•Picked up Matt Bryant, who beat his scoring projection by 108.3%, with 17.00 points against a projected 8.16.
•The 21.10 points scored by Kevin Smith was the fifth-highest score of any RB in the league this week.
•Michael Bush scored 16.20 points, which ranked 10th out of all the RBs in the league this week.
•Ruz had most of their starters beat their scoring projection (6 out of 9).

With Myself Regret Tracker

•Left Reggie Wayne on the bench, where he scored 13.50 points and surpassed his scoring projection by 78.6%, the highest percentage of any player on the team.
•The 6.00 points scored by Alex Henery did not reach his projected point total of 10.14. He was just picked up this week by With Myself.
•The RBs on With Myself let them down, getting outgunned by the RBs on Ruz 51.30 - 12.70.
•With Myself had no luck at the K position, losing the point battle 17.00 - 6.00 to Ruz.
•Of the 9 starters on With Myself, 6 underperformed versus their projections.
What If
•Ruz would have beaten eight other teams besides With Myself this week.
•If Ruz had scored 23.15 more points, they would have beaten all teams in the league this week.
•With Myself would have lost to eight other teams besides Ruz this week.
•If With Myself had scored 13.53 fewer points, they would have lost to all teams in the league this week.

Game Notes

•The 42.26-point margin of victory by Ruz was the largest in the league this week.
•Ruz was able to cover the 7.36-point spread in the win.
•Ruz got the best total score from their RBs of any team this week with 51.30 points.
•Ruz had the third-highest point total in the league this week.
•The 77.36 points put up by With Myself ranked 10th in the league this week.
•In the loss, Drew Brees ranked ninth in the league in scoring with 21.56 points.
•In the loss, Tony Gonzalez had the fourth-highest TE score in the league this week with 11.30 points.
•Although With Myself lost, Stevie Johnson played well, bringing in 63.6% more points than was projected (11.50 points against a projected 7.03).

Maize & Blue Regret Tracker

-Maize & Blue was not able to win even though only 5 of their 10 starters fell short of their projected point total.

ONLY?

That's pretty cool. I haven't been on yahoo since 04 i switched in 05 because ESPN had free live scoring and yahoo didn't. And now the league I run has been on it so long all our history is saved so there's no reason to switch.

I loved to read them even though it put another needle in the piss poor performance of my two teams. In both recaps it was said that my bench was more effective than my starters...

Pretty cool feature.

I like Yahoo telling me how I left AP and his 21.52 points on the bench and still won. My team is sick.
