Smooth Moves by ez BREESy

  • A higher score than your opponent is a guaranteed way to win each week. Thank the Toyota Hall of Fame for that valuable insight.

  • The 25.30 points scored by Tevin Coleman was the third-highest score of any RB in the league this week.
  • Cameron Artis-Payne put the team on his back with 20.50 points, the fifth-highest score among RBs in the league this week.
  • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just Antonio Brown posterizing opponents. He had the seventh-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 13.80 points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Some teams are destined to beat teams like Mike's Team and move on to Toyota Hall of Fame greatness. Ironically, you are included in that destiny, because you played yourself.
  • Should have started the Green Bay Packers Defense, which underachieved, but still had more points than the starting DEF with 7.00 against a projected 7.58.
  • Julian Edelman scored 3.50 points against a projected 10.81 and has now underachieved in every game this season.
  • Matt Jones was last on the team in scoring with 2.60 points, 33.2% of his projected 7.82, which is his lowest percentage of the season.
  • You've gotta hit rock button before you can start to rise. It was a season-low 4.00 points for the Denver Broncos Defense this week. It was also a season-low for their performance versus projections, reaching only 43.7% of a projected point total of 9.15.
