Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Did not start Marcus Mariota, who led the league in scoring with 30.52 points.
  • Left Dwayne Allen on the bench, where he scored 11.00 points to beat his scoring projection by 110.0%, the sixth-highest percentage in the league.
  • Could've started Nick Folk, who underachieved, but still had more points than the starting K with 8.00 against a projected 9.39.
  • Eddie Lacy has now failed to reach his projection for four straight games. This week he scored 8.40 points versus a projected 12.32.
