Cotton took advantage of the third-highest score this week (38.20 points) by Tom Brady, on the way to their third win in as many matchups when they beat No Common Tater 120.80 to 108.13. The streak is due in part to Cotton having the second-highest scoring output in the league at 130.47 points per matchup. No Common Tater stays put in seventh place with a 1-2 record. It's not time to start talking about undefeated seasons yet, people, but Cotton has kept the streak alive after demolishing 3legstud (120.80 to 118.60) and Yeezy Boost (149.80 to 87.20).

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • When life hands you lemons, say, “What the heck? I thought this was Fantasy Football, not a lemon stand. I want wins instead.” Wisdom from the Toyota Hall of Fame.
  • Did not start Eli Manning, who led the team in scoring with 31.20 points.
  • Picked up Trevor Siemian, who was last in the matchup in points scored with -0.17.
  • With a season-low 0.10 points versus a projected 10.94, Travis Kelce failed to meet his projection for the second time this season.
  • Note to self: don't start a player when they're going to have their worst game of the season. Tony Jefferson had a season-low 3.00 points against a projected 5.89 and underachieved for the second time this season.
