Smooth Moves by #FREEBRADY

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.
  • Left Marvin Jones Jr. on the bench, where he led the team in scoring with 19.80 points.
  • It was a bad week at RB for Ben Bottom, who was outscored at the position 45.60 - 7.30 by #FREEBRADY.
  • 6 of the 10 starters scored less than their projected points.
  • Doug Martin could not reach his projected point total, scoring only 18.6% of his 12.36-point projection with 2.30 points.

What If

  • If #FREEBRADY played Ben Bottom every week, they'd be 2-0 this year.
  • Besides Ben Bottom, #FREEBRADY would have beaten only one other team this week.
  • Were they resting their players for this week? #FREEBRADY would have defeated Ben Bottom 132.00 - 97.34 had they played each other last week.
