Smooth Moves by xprtrpr

  • If this were a dream sequence, you'd hear a deep voice announce, "xprtrpr, the Toyota Hall of Famer." But it's not.
  • If this was college, Martellus Bennett would expect to get a sleeve of helmet stickers. He ranked eighth in the league in scoring this week with 30.00 points. It was also the fifth-highest score of any player on xprtrpr this season.
  • With 29.00 points, Andrew Luck had the ninth-highest score in the league this week.
  • Jordan Howard put the team on his back with 25.00 points, the fourth-highest score among RBs in the league this week.
  • There are rumors that the military wants to model a new all-terrain vehicle based off of Devonta Freeman. He had the ninth-highest score among RBs in the league this week with 20.00 points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Sometimes 135.00 is enough. Unfortunately, the Toyota Hall of Fame has confirmed this time it's a smaller number than 171.50.
  • With 7.00 points against a projected 8.92, Chris Boswell did not meet his projection for the fourth straight game.
  • Super Karate Monkey was dominated at the TE position, scoring 7.00 points versus the 30.00 for xprtrpr.
  • You've gotta hit rock button before you can start to rise. It was a season-low 5.00 points for Jarvis Landry this week. It was also a season-low for his performance versus projections, reaching only 33.1% of a projected point total of 15.12.
  • Malcolm Jenkins was last on the team in scoring with 2.00 points against a projected 6.84 and underachieved for the second time this season.

  • If xprtrpr played Super Karate Monkey every week, they'd be 3-2 this year.

  • If xprtrpr had played every team in the league each week, they would be 27-18.

  • Timing really is everything. xprtrpr would have lost to Super Karate Monkey 163.00 - 143.50 had they played each other last week.
  • If they played the same schedule as xprtrpr, Super Karate Monkey would be 2-2.
  • If they played every team every week, Super Karate Monkey would be 26-19.
