Smooth Moves by Jeff's Little Heros

  • The Toyota Hall of Fame would have its eyes on you for this week's win. But the Toyota Hall of Fame doesn't have eyes. Obviously.
  • Marvin Jones Jr. scored a league-high for the most points this season with 38.50 points.
  • Drew Brees had 26.94 points, the second-highest QB score of the week and the sixth-highest QB score in the league this season.

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.
  • Golden Tate has scored below his projection in every game this season after scoring 7.20 points against a projected 12.99 this week.
  • Whoever gave you this advice, you might want to lose their number. Picked up and started Jacob Tamme, who then scored below his 9.95-point projection with 5.80 points.
  • It was not a good week for Born to Lose at TE, where they were beaten 11.60 - 5.80.
  • Note to self: don't start a player when they're going to have their worst game of the season. Blake Bortles had a season-low 14.46 points against a projected 19.24 and underachieved for the second time this season.
