Smooth Moves by Carlos Dangerous

  • Even if you cried trying to win, you still won. And the Toyota Hall of Fame is proud of Carlos Dangerous either way.
  • David Johnson didn't have the best score of the week, but there ain't no shame in his game. He had 31.10 points, the fifth-highest RB score of the week and the 10th-highest RB score in the league this season.
  • The New England Patriots Defense had 16.00 points, the third-highest DEF score of the week and the fifth-highest score among DEF in the league this season.
  • Mason Crosby scored a season-high 11.00 points and beat his scoring projection by a season-high 30.0%.
  • Carlos Dangerous won even with Kelvin Benjamin in the starting lineup, who didn't score any points.

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.
  • Left Devonta Freeman on the bench, where he led the league in scoring with 34.70 points.
  • Missed out on an opportunity by leaving the 15.00 points scored by Jimmy Graham on the bench this week. He outperformed his projected point total by 123.5%, the ninth-highest percentage in the league.
  • Should have started Doug Baldwin, who beat his scoring projection with 23.00 points against a projected 12.22.
  • 7 of the starters on White Thunder underperformed versus their projections.

  • Carlos Dangerous got the win despite Brandin Cooks having a season-low 1.90 points and falling short of his projection for the second time this season.
