Smooth Moves by Adrians Magic Switch

  • Fantasy Football is a game where the high score wins. So keep doing what you have to do, the Toyota Hall of Fame will turn a blind eye.
  • Drew Brees had 32.94 points, the third-highest QB score of the week and the eighth-highest QB score in the league this season.
  • Picked up Tevin Coleman, who scored the eighth-most points in the league and beat his scoring projection by 185.9%, the eighth-highest percentage in the league.
  • What do Apache helicopters, F-117 Nighthawks and Jordy Nelson have in common? They are all dangerous aerial weapons. He ranked fourth in the league in scoring among WRs this week with 22.10 points.
  • The 18.00 points were a season-high for the New England Patriots Defense. The score beat their 8.03-point projection by 124.2%, which also was a season-high.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • It's okay to regret not taking a sick day to study the Toyota Hall of Fame's articles. But it's not okay to do it again.
  • Should have started Tavon Austin, who beat his scoring projection with 16.40 points against a projected 9.02.
  • The WR corps couldn't keep pace with their counterparts from Adrians Magic Switch and were outscored 30.40 - 9.30.
  • With a season-low 3.10 points versus a projected 8.78, Eric Decker failed to meet his projection for the second time this season.
  • Note to self: don't start a player when they're going to have their worst game of the season. Amari Cooper had a season-low 6.20 points against a projected 11.01 and underachieved for the second time this season.
