WEEK 1 BOX SCORES
 
            Georgia / SC                               Florida                    
QB - Cam Newton 0.0 QB - Geno Smith 16.9
RB - Jonathan Dwyer 2.8 RB - Alfred Morris 9.1
RB - Andre Ellington 8.0 RB - Frank Gore 6.6
WR - Calvin Johnson 28.4 WR - Brandon Marshall 13.1
WR - Demaryius Thomas 4.8 WR - Andre Johnson 9.3
WR - A.J. Green 19.6 WR - Antonio Brown 17.6
TE - Jared Cook 5.6 TE - Ladarius Green 2.4
K - Chandler Catanzaro 6.0 K - Blair Walsh 10.0
TOTAL 75.2 TOTAL 85.0

Analysis: Megatron's huge Monday night was not enough, as the lack of a backup QB forced Georgia / SC to start Cam Newton and he did not play. 

 
          Northeast                           Mid-Atlantic          
QB - Matt Ryan 32.9 QB - Russell Wilson 18.5
RB - LeSean McCoy 11.5 RB - Ben Tate 4.1
RB - Bernard Pierce 1.4 RB - Rashad Jennings 15.6
WR - Victor Cruz 2.4 WR - Kennan Allen 3.7
WR - Marques Colston 11.0 WR - Percy Harvin 10.0
WR - Kenny Britt 0.0 WR - Torrey Smith 5.0
TE - Rob Gronkowski 10.0 TE - Jimmy Graham 8.2
K - Steven Hauschka 10.0 K - Nick Novak 5.0
TOTAL 79.2 TOTAL 70.1

Analysis: Matt Ryan's big performance carried Northeast to the victory even with limited production from its RB's and WR's.

 
           California                   Ohio River Valley      
QB - Colin Kaepernick 17.2 QB - Jay Cutler 21.5
RB - Marshawn Lynch 24.4 RB - Le'Veon Bell 25.7
RB - Arian Foster 12.0 RB - Bishop Sankey 2.5
WR - Julian Edelman 9.5 WR - Randall Cobb 11.8
WR - DeSean Jackson 6.2 WR - Golden Tate 9.7
WR - Brandin Cooks 15.5 WR - Brian Hartline 2.6
TE - Julius Thomas 28.4 TE - Jason Witten 1.4
K - Nick Folk 7.0 K - Nate Freese 9.0
TOTAL 120.2 TOTAL 84.2

Analysis: Bad luck for Ohio River Valley, who scored the fourth most points of any team; they faced a California team that had by far the most points in the league.

 
                Texas                             Gulf Region           
QB - Drew Brees 18.9 QB - Peyton Manning 22.2
RB - Jamaal Charles 3.4 RB - Matt Forte 16.9
RB - Adrian Peterson 9.3 RB - Eddie Lacy 4.5
WR - Dez Bryant 5.5 WR - Julio Jones 11.6
WR - Emmanuel Sanders 8.8 WR - Reggie Wayne 9.8
WR - Michael Crabtree 2.5 WR - Mike Wallace 14.1
TE - Martellus Bennett 13.0 TE - Charles Clay 2.7
K - Justin Tucker 4.0 K - Stephen Gostkowski 8.0
TOTAL 65.4 TOTAL 89.8

Analysis: It's unlikely Texas will have another week where all of its RB's and WR's score less than 10 points; its second lowest point total was the surprise of week one.

 
                 West                            Midwest            
QB - Shaun Hill 3.0 QB - Tony Romo 14.1
RB - DeMarco Murray 20.3 RB - Montee Ball 14.3
RB - Steven Jackson 5.2 RB - Joique Bell 11.6
WR - Jordy Nelson 8.3 WR - Larry Fitzgerald 2.2
WR - Vincent Jackson 3.6 WR - Michael Floyd 11.9
WR - Markus Wheaton 9.7 WR - Eric Decker 7.4
TE - Austin Seferian-Jenkins 2.6 TE - Antonio Gates 8.1
K - Dan Bailey 5.0 K - Adam Vinatieri 6.0
TOTAL 57.7 TOTAL 75.6

Analysis: If Shaun Hill doesn't get hurt, this would have been a lot closer; no player scored more than 15 points for the Midwest, but almost all were productive.
