Smooth Moves by Darth Niner

  • Darth Niner scored massive brownie points with the Toyota Hall of Fame this week. Too bad brownie points don't count as real points. Not that you need help.
  • Even the Wright brothers would be proud of this aerial performance. Mike Evans had 32.50 points, the highest WR score of the week and the fourth-highest WR score in the league this season.
  • The 34.10 points scored by Melvin Gordon ranked second in the league in scoring. It is the highest output of any player on Darth Niner this season.
  • This is the bar, and this is the team jumping over it. Darth Niner had 5 of their 9 starters exceed their projected points.
  • Four bench players on Darth Niner were not playing this week, but they still won the matchup.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Sometimes 83.76 is enough. Unfortunately, the Toyota Hall of Fame has confirmed this time it's a smaller number than 145.44.
  • Could have started Ben Roethlisberger, who underachieved, but still had more points than the starting QB with 20.86 against a projected 23.31.
  • Kaep n Crunch picked up Ryan Tannehill, who then fell short of his 21.21-point projection by scoring 11.16 points.
  • Chris Boswell was last in the matchup in scoring, finishing below his projection for the sixth time this season with 2.00 points against a projected 8.33.
  • This is how people lose everything in casinos. Kaep n Crunch thought their luck would change and went back to the well with Brandon Marshall. However, he scored 7.50 points against a projected 12.26 and has now underachieved in four straight games.
