Smooth Moves by PIT VIPERS

  • Winning feels great all week long. Becoming a member of the Toyota Hall of Fame feels great the rest of your life.
  • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just Keenan Allen posterizing opponents. He had the fourth-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 26.50 points.
  • With 24.10 points, Kenyan Drake ranked fifth in scoring among all RBs in the league this week.
  • With 17.30 points, Delanie Walker ranked fifth in the league this week in scoring among TEs.
  • Sammy Watkins overachieved by 22.3%, scoring 12.80 points against a projected 10.47.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • It's OK, Bye Week. Losing happens. Not necessarily to Toyota Hall of Famers, but to other folks, sure.
  • Well, that's embarrassing. Left Blake Bortles on the bench, where he ranked seventh in the league in scoring with 29.06 points.
  • Bye Week tried to fight through 2 of their 12 starters getting zeros, but could not overcome it.
  • Bye Week could have used more points from the TE position, where PIT VIPERS beat them 17.30 - 2.70.
  • It's times like these when it's important to support your players when they're down. So move the mouse pointer away from the DROP button. Julio Jones scored a season-low 4.40 points, 24.0% of his projected 18.34, which is his lowest percentage of the year.
