Smooth Moves by Urban Legends

  • Reading this matchup recap is indicative of potential Toyota Hall of Famers. You're making Urban Legends look really good right now.
  • Expect to see some trade offers for Drew Brees. He ranked sixth in the league in scoring with 39.75 points.
  • Took the Houston Texans Defense out of the starting lineup, which scored 11.98 points on the bench, fewer than the starting DEF.
  • Put WR Tavon Austin on the bench, where he scored 4.50 points, fewer than any WR in the starting lineup.
  • With 19.30 points, Lamar Miller ranked seventh in scoring among all RBs in the league this week.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Sometimes 142.74 is enough. Unfortunately, the Toyota Hall of Fame has confirmed this time it's a smaller number than 149.97.
  • Well, that's embarrassing. Left Eli Manning on the bench, where he ranked 10th in the league in scoring with 34.95 points.
  • Did not start Steve Smith Sr., who beat his scoring projection with 23.90 points against a projected 13.85.
  • All that glitters is not gold. Picked up Willie Snead, who scored 7.30 points against his projected 15.19.
  • A heated blanket would be a great gift for Cam Newton during this cold streak. He scored below his projection in four straight games after scoring 24.30 points against a projected 37.96 this week.

What If

  • If Urban Legends played McKerrow Crows every week, they would be 4-7 this season.
  • Besides McKerrow Crows, Urban Legends would have beaten only two other teams this week.
  • Urban Legends would be 4-5 if they played the same schedule as McKerrow Crows.
  • If Urban Legends had played every team in the league each week, they would be 41-58.
  • Besides Urban Legends, McKerrow Crows would have been defeated by six other teams this week.
  • Timing really is everything. Urban Legends would have lost to McKerrow Crows 152.17 - 147.55 had they played each other last week.
  • McKerrow Crows would be 4-5 if they played the same schedule as Urban Legends.
  • If they played every team every week, McKerrow Crows would be 48-51.

Game Notes

  • With the loss, McKerrow Crows has the longest losing streak in the league, stretching back four straight games.
  • Urban Legends scored 149.97 points against a projected 159.20 and underachieved for the eighth time this season, including the last five weeks in a row.
  • The win by Urban Legends snapped a four-game losing streak.
  • DeAndre Hopkins did little to help Urban Legends, underperforming versus projections for the eighth straight game with 10.80 points against a projected 16.56.
  • Not going to name names, but some people here aren't pulling their weight. Forget it, Jordan Matthews needs to step it up! He scored 10.90 points against a projected 16.39 in the win, and has now scored below his projection in three straight games.
  • Just because Robert Horry has seven NBA championship rings, doesn't mean he's one of the greats. Despite being on the winning team, Kwon Alexander scored 6.50 points against a projected 9.03 and has now underachieved in three straight games.
  • Urban Legends remains undefeated in close games this season, improving to 3-0.
  • McKerrow Crows falls to 0-4 and remains winless in upset games this season.

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.
