Smooth Moves by Durand's Team

  • If this were a dream sequence, you'd hear a deep voice announce, "Durand's Team, the Toyota Hall of Famer." But it's not.

  • The 26.10 points scored by Le'Veon Bell ranked fourth in the league in scoring. It was also his highest output of the season.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Some teams are destined to beat teams like Winston's Team and move on to Toyota Hall of Fame greatness. Ironically, you are included in that destiny, because you played yourself.
  • Did not start Jared Cook, who scored 14.50 points and beat his projected point total by 253.2%, which was the highest percentage in the league.
  • Made a mistake in not starting the Minnesota Vikings Defense, which ranked 10th in the league in scoring and topped their scoring projection by 110.2%, the sixth-highest percentage in the league.
  • DeVante Parker was left on the bench, where he bested his expected 8.00-point total by putting up 13.90 points.
  • Tavon Austin was last on the team in scoring with 2.90 points against a projected 7.03 and has now underachieved in three straight games.

Thomas Rawls Sea - RB 2015 vs. San Francisco 209 rushing yards, 46 receiving yards, 2 touchdowns An undrafted rookie from Central Michigan, Rawls, filling in for an injured Marshawn Lynch, put on his best Beast Mode impersonation in Week 11 against the 49ers.

In just his fourth NFL start, Rawls plowed his way to 209 rushing yards and a rushing score. He also flashed some versatility with 46 receiving yards and a TD catch. His fantasy total would wind up being the second-best by a running back during the 2015 season, trailing only Arizona rookie David Johnson’s Week 15 effort.
