Smooth Moves by Magic Mike

  • With 22.14 points, Carson Wentz ranked fourth in the league this week in scoring among QBs.
  • Do you put a LB or DB on him? You might have to put both on him if this continues. Jimmy Graham scored 19.90 points to rank third among TEs in the league this week.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Did not start Andy Dalton, who led the team in scoring with 22.72 points.

  • With 3.10 points, Hunter Henry was last in the matchup in scoring and got only 27.1% of his projected point total, which is his lowest percentage of the season.
