Smooth Moves by Joanna's Rad Team

  • The Toyota Hall of Fame would have its eyes on you for this week's win. But the Toyota Hall of Fame doesn't have eyes. Obviously.

  • Martellus Bennett laughed in the face of the experts this week, beating his scoring projection by a matchup-leading 257.3% and scoring the seventh-most points in the league with 24.70 points.
  • Took Jack Doyle out of the starting lineup, who scored 0.80 points on the bench, fewer than the starting TE.
  • Randall Cobb scored a season-high 10.80 points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • It's okay to regret not taking a sick day to study the Toyota Hall of Fame's articles. But it's not okay to do it again.
  • Julian Edelman has scored below his projection in every game this season after scoring 3.50 points against a projected 10.84 this week.
  • Whoever gave you this advice, you might want to lose their number. Picked up and started Joe Flacco, who then scored below his 16.35-point projection with 13.00 points.
  • C.J. Anderson has now failed to reach his projection for three straight games. This week he scored 6.20 points versus a projected 13.29.
  • Airing of Revis-es was dominated at the TE position, scoring 1.50 points versus the 24.70 for Joanna's Rad Team.
