Smooth Moves by Red Raiders

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • This is one of those mistakes that you continuously think about for ten years. Did not start Dak Prescott, who scored 25 points to rank fourth in the league in scoring.
  • Marvin Jones Jr. was last in the matchup in scoring with 1 point against a projected 7.04 and has now underachieved in seven straight games.
  • Of the 9 starters on Kimmie's Warriors, 5 underperformed versus their projections.

In just his fourth NFL start, Rawls plowed his way to 209 rushing yards and a rushing score. He also flashed some versatility with 46 receiving yards and a TD catch. His fantasy total would wind up being the second-best by a running back during the 2015 season, trailing only Arizona rookie David Johnson’s Week 15 effort.
