Smooth Moves by Mike's Team

  • Even if you cried trying to win, you still won. And the Toyota Hall of Fame is proud of Mike's Team either way.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Did not start Ted Ginn Jr., who led the team in scoring with 15.90 points.
  • The WRs on Willie the Ace let them down, resulting in a 63.50 - 24.10 difference at the position.
  • This is how people lose everything in casinos. Willie the Ace thought their luck would change and went back to the well with Matthew Stafford. However, he scored 11.12 points against a projected 19.99 and has now underachieved in four straight games.
  • With 2.50 points against a projected 11.20, Marvin Jones Jr. did not meet his projection for the seventh straight game.

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.
