  • Benched Eli Manning, who had the lowest QB score on the team with 21.18 points.

  • Even with only 3 of the 9 starters scoring more than their projection, Ross was still able to win.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Next week, be sure to ask Ross where official Toyota Hall of Fame articles are kept.
  • UNDERDOG had 7 of their 9 starters score less than their projected points.
  • A heated blanket would be a great gift for Spencer Ware during this cold streak. He scored below his projection in three straight games after scoring 8.50 points against a projected 15.26 this week.
  • The 1.50 points scored by Marvin Jones Jr. fell short of his 7.16-point projection, the seventh straight game where that has happened.
  • With 6.00 points against a projected 7.89, Mason Crosby did not meet his projection for the fourth straight game.

  • Ross would have beaten only one other team besides UNDERDOG this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as UNDERDOG, Ross would be 6-3.
  • If Ross had played every team in the league each week, they would be 47-52.
  • UNDERDOG would have lost to every other team in the league this week.
  • Timing really is everything. Ross would have lost to UNDERDOG 105.52 - 91.00 had they played each other last week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Ross, UNDERDOG would be 7-2.
  • UNDERDOG would be 63-36 if they played every team every week.

Thomas Rawls Sea - RB 2015 vs. San Francisco 209 rushing yards, 46 receiving yards, 2 touchdowns An undrafted rookie from Central Michigan, Rawls, filling in for an injured Marshawn Lynch, put on his best Beast Mode impersonation in Week 11 against the 49ers.

In just his fourth NFL start, Rawls plowed his way to 209 rushing yards and a rushing score. He also flashed some versatility with 46 receiving yards and a TD catch. His fantasy total would wind up being the second-best by a running back during the 2015 season, trailing only Arizona rookie David Johnson’s Week 15 effort.
