Smooth Moves by Purple Warriors

  • Outscoring your opponent is a sure-fire way to win each week. You can thank the Toyota Hall of Fame for that valuable insight.
  • The 34.00 points scored by T.Y. Hilton was the second-highest WR score in the league this week and the seventh-best point total by a WR in the league this season.
  • Just call him Fred Flintstone, because he was toting the rock all day long. Ezekiel Elliott had 41.00 points, the highest RB score of the week and the second-highest RB score in the league this season.
  • If this was college, Aaron Rodgers would expect to get a sleeve of helmet stickers. He ranked seventh in the league in scoring this week with 46.00 points. It was also the third-highest score of any player on Purple Warriors this season.
  • Took Eli Manning out of the starting lineup, who scored 23.00 points on the bench, fewer than the starting QB.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • The fact that you're reading this means you have internet connection. Unfortunately, that's one less thing to blame your loss on. Don't tell the Hall.
  • A heated blanket would be a great gift for David Amerson during this cold streak. He scored below his projection in three straight games after scoring 7.00 points against a projected 9.06 this week.
  • Our kicker can beat up your kicker. Al Qaeda Jada got outscored 13.00 - 6.00 by Purple Warriors at the K position.
  • With 4.00 points, Justin Tucker had his lowest output of the season and tallied just 35.1% of his 11.39 projected points, his lowest percentage of the year.
  • It's times like these when it's important to support your players when they're down. So move the mouse pointer away from the DROP button. The Cincinnati Bengals Defense scored a season-low 8.00 points, 56.8% of their projected 14.08, which is their lowest percentage of the year.
