Smooth Moves by Mega Moore

  • Outscoring your opponent is a sure-fire way to win each week. You can thank the Toyota Hall of Fame for that valuable insight.
  • Ezekiel Elliott didn't have the best score of the week, but there ain't no shame in his game. He had 28 points, the second-highest RB score of the week and the second-highest RB score in the league this season.
  • Added Adam Vinatieri, who exceeded his scoring projection by a matchup-leading 142.9%.
  • With 18 points, Greg Olsen had the second-highest TE score of the week and the third-best TE score in the league this season.
  • Tom Brady had the ninth-most points in the league this season with 29, leading the league in points for the week.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Sometimes 52 is enough. Unfortunately, the Toyota Hall of Fame has confirmed this time it's a smaller number than 146.
  • All nine players in the starting lineup scored less than their projected points.
  • Missed out on an opportunity by leaving the 16 points scored by the Minnesota Vikings Defense on the bench this week. They outperformed their projected point total by 137.0%, the fifth-highest percentage in the league.
  • Should have started Blair Walsh, who underachieved, but still outscored the starting K with 7 against a projected 8.48.
  • Picked up Theo Riddick but left him on the bench, where he led the team in scoring with 19 points.
