Smooth Moves by NE#11

  • If this were a dream sequence, you'd hear a deep voice announce, "NE#11, the Toyota Hall of Famer." But it's not.

  • With 27.00 points, DeMarco Murray ranked sixth in scoring among all RBs in the league this week.
  • What do Apache helicopters, F-117 Nighthawks and Jordy Nelson have in common? They are all dangerous aerial weapons. He ranked eighth in the league in scoring among WRs this week with 24.90 points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Some teams are destined to beat teams like Bold Strategy Cotton and move on to Toyota Hall of Fame greatness. Ironically, you are included in that destiny, because you played yourself.
  • Whoever gave you this advice, you might want to lose their number. Picked up and started Charcandrick West, who then scored below his 19.75-point projection with 13.40 points.
  • Zach Brown was last in the matchup in scoring, finishing below his projection for the first time this season with 1.00 point against a projected 7.72.
  • This is how people lose everything in casinos. Bold Strategy Cotton thought their luck would change and went back to the well with Brandon Marshall. However, he scored 11.50 points against a projected 16.81 and has now underachieved in four straight games.
  • Marvin Jones Jr. did not meet his 14.80 projected points and has now underperformed versus projections for six straight weeks. He also scored a season-low 2.00 points.
