Smooth Moves by MakeItHueWhatItDo

  • 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.
  • Devonta Freeman does not believe in running back by committee. He had the best RB score of the week and the third-highest RB score in the league this season with 27.37 points.
  • With 15.00 points, Steven Hauschka had his highest output of the season.
  • With 11.00 points, the Oakland Raiders Defense had their highest score of the season and beat their projected point total by a season-high 54.3%.
  • Apparently playing within themselves was good enough. MakeItHueWhatItDo won despite having only 3 of their 9 starters exceed their projected points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • 110.06 seems a lot higher when you're on the losing side of it. And the Toyota Hall of Fame knows you know that.
  • Did not start the Buffalo Bills Defense, which scored 21.00 points, surpassing their projected points by 269.7%, the third-highest percentage in the league.
  • Should have started Jerick McKinnon, who underachieved, but still had the most points of any RB on the team with 7.13 against a projected 10.51.
  • Could've started Tyrod Taylor, who underachieved, but still had more points than the starting QB with 20.86 against a projected 21.23.
  • Velvet Turkeys had 7 starters fail to reach their projections.

  • If MakeItHueWhatItDo had played every team in the league each week, they would be 10-23.
  • Velvet Turkeys would have lost to eight other teams besides MakeItHueWhatItDo this week.
  • And they say procrastination doesn't pay off! Had they played each other last week, MakeItHueWhatItDo would have lost to Velvet Turkeys 128.87 - 67.05.
  • Velvet Turkeys would be 2-0 if they played the same schedule as MakeItHueWhatItDo.
  • Velvet Turkeys would be 18-15 if they played every team every week.
