Smooth Moves by Punchinator

  • A win like that must feel great, Punchinator. Know what feels better? Getting in the Toyota Hall of Fame.
  • Not quite the best, but pretty darn good. Melvin Gordon had the second-highest RB score of the week and the fifth-highest RB score in the league this season with 28.30 points.
  • A very special special-teamer: The 18.00 points scored by Adam Vinatieri was the best K score of the week and is the fourth-highest K score in the league this season.
  • Do you put a LB or DB on him? You might have to put both on him if this continues. Hunter Henry scored 10.20 points to rank fourth among TEs in the league this week.
  • Punchinator won despite having 2 of their 9 starters score zero points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Loss is a four-letter word to Toyota Hall of Famers. And win is a three-letter word. Hall of Famers are great at Fantasy Football AND counting.
  • Did not start the Jacksonville Jaguars Defense, which scored 28.00 points and beat his projected point total by 358.0%, which was the highest percentage in the league.
  • Should have started Marvin Jones Jr., who underachieved, but still had the most points of any WR on the team with 5.40 against a projected 6.27.
  • With 3.10 points against a projected 10.31, Alshon Jeffery was last on the team in scoring and has now scored below his projection in three straight games.
  • Rishard Matthews was last on the team in scoring with 3.10 points, 35.8% of his projected 8.66, which is his lowest percentage of the season.
