The Jags' 42 would have beaten every other team in the NFL except the Colts that particular week. They have to be judged against the team they're playing, not everyone else. They still get the loss.
that makes little sense. the jags play gainst the indy defense, not against the other defenses in the NFL. but for FF, all the pts recorded are bout single performances with guys that arent even on the same team in the NFL. completely different from your example.
The thing I'm getting at here is that an offensive display is due to the accomplishments of individual players. It is completely feasible that the Jags' offense scored 2 TD's on passes from Leftwich to Jones and another from Leftwich to Wilford. Let's say you have Leftwich and get credit for the 3 TD's. The Jags in my example scored a lot of points by NFL standards, but not enough to win that particular game. Same thing applies in fantasy. You get the points for 3 TD's from your QB (which is a really good week), but you need your RB's, WR's and Def. to play well to also win. In my example, the Jags D didn't play well enough to win. It mirrors real football the best way possible.
