Smooth Moves by Illini Hoosier

  • If this were a dream sequence, you'd hear a deep voice announce, "Illini Hoosier, the Toyota Hall of Famer." But it's not.
  • Expect to see some trade offers for Antonio Brown. He ranked third in the league in scoring with 32 points.

  • We won't judge you if you want to bow to Mike Evans. He ranked seventh in the league in scoring with 30 points.
  • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just Michael Crabtree posterizing opponents. He had the ninth-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 19 points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Somehow, all of your players had two bye weeks this week. The Toyota Hall of Fame calls that a bye bye week. Yes, it's a bad joke, but it's still better than your score.
  • The WRs on Go Bears! let them down, resulting in an 81 - 35 difference at the position.
  • The 4 points scored by Chris Boswell fell short of his 11.94-point projection, the fourth straight game where that has happened.

  • It was a season-low scoring total for Amari Cooper, who had 6 points. He had a projected total of 17.68 points and this week was the third straight game of underperformance versus his projection.
