Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • The fact that you're reading this means you have internet connection. Unfortunately, that's one less thing to blame your loss on. Don't tell the Hall.
  • Seattle Trenchers had 9 of their 11 starters score less than their projected points.
  • With 15.10 points against a projected 20.00, Ryan Fitzpatrick did not meet his projection for the third straight game.
  • Who needs offense when the defense is so dominant!? Seattle Trenchers got outscored 15.00 - 2.00 by USS Supremacy at the DEF position.
  • 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. Jarvis Landry scored a season-low 7.20 points, 42.1% of his projected 17.09, which is his lowest percentage of the year.
