Smooth Moves by Homicide Hernandez

  • Winning make you feel warm and fuzzy? Coincidentally, Toyota Hall of Fame inductees get a gold jacket that is both warm and quite fuzzy.
  • The 35.80 points scored by Kirk Cousins was the highest QB score of the week and is the 10th-highest QB score in the league this season.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Did not start Christian McCaffrey, who scored 22.40 points and beat his projected point total by a team-leading 59.1%.
  • Whoever gave you this advice, you might want to lose their number. Picked up and started Elijah McGuire, who then scored below his 8.73-point projection with 2.20 points.
  • FamousAmousJameis had only 5 of their 10 starters underperform versus their projections, but they still lost.
  • Andre Ellington failed to score this week with 0 points against a projected 17.89.
