Smooth Moves by King Kong

  • Outscoring your opponent is a sure-fire way to win each week. You can thank the Toyota Hall of Fame for that valuable insight.
  • We won't judge you if you want to bow to Marcus Mariota. He ranked ninth in the league in scoring with 25.92 points.
  • Made the right move in benching Tyler Lockett, who had 3.50 points, the lowest total of any starting WR on King Kong.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • It's okay to regret not taking a sick day to study the Toyota Hall of Fame's articles. But it's not okay to do it again.
  • Torrey Smith was last in the matchup in scoring, finishing below his projection for the sixth time this season with 2.80 points against a projected 9.64.
  • The 3.00 points scored by Blair Walsh was a season-low. He had a projected 7.81-point total, and has now underachieved in seven straight games.
  • 6 of the 10 starters scored less than their projected points.
  • With 3.70 points versus a projected 11.20, Michael Crabtree scored only 33.0% of his projected point total.
