Smooth Moves by Wolfpack

  • Wolfpack is a winning name, which might be why you just won. Next step is figuring out if Wolfpack is a Toyota Hall of Fame name.
  • Larry Fitzgerald had 17 points, the highest WR score in the league this week.
  • With 26 points, Kirk Cousins had the third-highest score in the league this week.
  • The Carolina Panthers Defense felt like the Rodney Dangerfield of football, 'no respect at all' with this week's projected points. They scored the seventh-most points in the league and beat their projected point total by 107.9%, the eighth-highest percentage in the league.
  • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just DeAndre Hopkins posterizing opponents. He had the third-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 12 points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Dear, Red Terror: Sorry to hear you lost. Toyota Hall of Famers don't really know how that feels, but surely it can't feel great. Next week, just win.
  • This is one of those mistakes that you continuously think about for ten years. Did not start Jared Goff, who scored 32 points to rank second in the league in scoring.
  • The Houston Texans Defense had -1 point against a projected 3.84 to finish last in the league in scoring and has now underachieved in seven straight games.
  • 8 of the starters on Red Terror underperformed versus their projections.
  • A heated blanket would be a great gift for Marvin Jones Jr. during this cold streak. He scored below his projection in three straight games after scoring 5 points against a projected 7.80 this week.
