Smooth Moves by Buffalo Bills

  • Buffalo Bills 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.
  • If this was college, David Johnson would expect to get a sleeve of helmet stickers. He ranked second in the league in scoring this week with 30.50 points. It was also the fourth-highest score of any player on Buffalo Bills this season.
  • Put WR DeSean Jackson on the bench, where he scored 3.50 points, fewer than any WR in the starting lineup.
  • Made a good move in sitting LeGarrette Blount this week. He brought in 9.70 points, the fewest of any RB on the team.
  • Miss Cleo, is that you? The 15.00 points scored by the Washington Redskins Defense, which Buffalo Bills picked up this week, beat their projected point total of 8.51 by 76.4%.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Next week, be sure to ask Buffalo Bills where official Toyota Hall of Fame articles are kept.
  • Could have started Tyrod Taylor, who underachieved, but still had more points than the starting QB with 15.76 against a projected 17.15.
  • Golden Tate has scored below his projection in every game this season after scoring 4.50 points against a projected 7.70 this week.
  • You've gotta hit rock button before you can start to rise. It was a season-low 3.70 points for Zach Ertz this week. It was also a season-low for his performance versus projections, reaching only 52.3% of a projected point total of 7.07.
  • Of the 9 starters on Nathan's Superb Team, 5 underperformed versus their projections.
