Smooth Moves by Hawthorne

  • Hawthorne is a winning name, which might be why you just won. Next step is figuring out if Hawthorne is a Toyota Hall of Fame name.
  • Added Jacoby Brissett, who scored 16.58 points to lead the team.
  • There are rumors that the military wants to model a new all-terrain vehicle based off of Kenyan Drake. He had the seventh-highest score among RBs in the league this week with 15.20 points.
  • What do Apache helicopters, F-117 Nighthawks and Robby Anderson have in common? They are all dangerous aerial weapons. He ranked eighth in the league in scoring among WRs this week with 14.50 points.
  • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just Stefon Diggs posterizing opponents. He had the 10th-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 13.80 points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • It's OK, BitchMyNameIsSamXi. Losing happens. Not necessarily to Toyota Hall of Famers, but to other folks, sure.
  • Left Rex Burkhead on the bench, where he scored 12.30 points to beat his scoring projection by 160.6%, the seventh-highest percentage in the league.
  • Picked up and started the Chicago Bears Defense, which scored a team-worst 37.1% of their projected point total for 3.00 points, which was also last on the team.
  • A heated blanket would be a great gift for Rob Gronkowski during this cold streak. He scored below his projection in three straight games after scoring 7.40 points against a projected 11.25 this week.
  • Only 4 of the 9 starters on BitchMyNameIsSamXi underachieved this week, but they still lost.
