Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Somehow, all of your players had two bye weeks this week. The Toyota Hall of Fame calls that a bye bye week. Yes, it's a bad joke, but it's still better than your score.
  • Doug's Wondrous Team had 2 of their 10 starters score zero points.
  • Doug's Wondrous Team would have welcomed more points at WR, where Slay-N-It topped them 51.10 - 21.50.

  • With 6.00 points, Matt Prater had his lowest output of the season and tallied just 83.3% of his 7.20 projected points, his lowest percentage of the year.
