Smooth Moves by Underdogs

  • The Toyota Hall of Fame would have its eyes on you for this week's win. But the Toyota Hall of Fame doesn't have eyes. Obviously.
  • Is this your audition for head talent scout of a pro team? Picked up Rashad Jennings, who beat his scoring projection by 87.6%, the 10th-highest percentage in the league.
  • With 48.15 points, Dak Prescott ranked fourth in the league in scoring this week and had the fifth-highest score of any player on Underdogs this season.
  • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just Dez Bryant posterizing opponents. He had the second-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 26.00 points.
  • Frank Gore put the team on his back with 18.10 points, the ninth-highest score among RBs in the league this week.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Don't worry, Luvs2Spooge, the Toyota Hall of Fame says losing isn't contagious. But it is embarrassing. And you should be embarrassed.
  • Whoever gave you this advice, you might want to lose their number. Picked up and started Dustin Hopkins, who then scored below his 9.71-point projection with 6.00 points.
  • Luvs2Spooge had 8 of their 10 starters score less than their projected points.
  • With 2.40 points, Martellus Bennett scored only 18.7% of his 12.83 projected point total.
  • Luvs2Spooge was let down by their RBs, who both failed to reach their projections.

  • If Underdogs played Luvs2Spooge every week, they'd be 8-3 this year.

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.
