Smooth Moves by MEGatron

  • 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.
  • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just Allen Robinson posterizing opponents. He had the ninth-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 17.70 points.
  • Charles Sims scored a season-high 18.40 points and beat his scoring projection by 49.7%, which also is a season-high.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • The fact that you're reading this means you have internet connection. Unfortunately, that's one less thing to blame your loss on. Don't tell the Hall.
  • Left Terrelle Pryor Sr. on the bench, where he scored 23.90 points and beat his projected point total by 186.9%, the sixth-highest percentage in the league this week.
  • Whoever gave you this advice, you might want to lose their number. Picked up and started Chris Ivory, who then scored below his 7.04-point projection with 2.30 points.
  • The best offense is a good defense. Zeke-A-Leek got beat 18.00 - 8.00 by MEGatron at the DEF position.
  • Note to self: don't start a player when they're going to have their worst game of the season. Derek Carr had a season-low 12.86 points against a projected 19.89 and underachieved for the first time this season.
