Smooth Moves by Martin's Team

  • A higher score than your opponent is a guaranteed way to win each week. Thank the Toyota Hall of Fame for that valuable insight.
  • Aaron Rodgers had 26.90 points, the fourth-highest QB score of the week and the ninth-highest QB score in the league this season.
  • Jimmy Graham had 18.50 points, the fifth-highest TE score of the week and the seventh-highest TE score in the league this season.
  • Devonta Freeman does not believe in running back by committee. He had the best RB score of the week and the fourth-highest RB score in the league this season with 32.20 points.
  • Made a good move in sitting T.J. Yeldon this week. He brought in 3.80 points, the fewest of any RB on the team.

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.
  • Could've started Andy Dalton, who underachieved, but still had more points than the starting QB with 12.24 against a projected 16.56.
  • It's tough to win when your team leader gets embarrassed like this. At the QB position, Jon's Mediocre Team got outscored 26.90 - 7.48 by Martin's Team.
  • Hate to point fingers for why a team loses, but RIGHT HERE. Carson Palmer had a season-low 7.48 points against a projected 17.69 and scored below his projection for the first time this season.
  • With a season-low 6.00 points versus a projected 8.87, Blair Walsh failed to meet his projection for the second time this season.
