Smooth Moves by COWBOYS

  • A higher score than your opponent is a guaranteed way to win each week. Thank the Toyota Hall of Fame for that valuable insight.
  • What do Apache helicopters, F-117 Nighthawks and Dez Bryant have in common? They are all dangerous aerial weapons. He ranked third in the league in scoring among WRs this week with 20 points.
  • The 19 points by Russell Wilson topped a projected 14.75, extending his overachievement streak to three weeks.
  • There are rumors that the military wants to model a new all-terrain vehicle based off of James Starks. He had the ninth-highest score among RBs in the league this week with 12 points.
  • With 12 points, Frank Gore ranked ninth in scoring among all RBs in the league this week.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • 87 seems a lot higher when you're on the losing side of it. And the Toyota Hall of Fame knows you know that.
  • Picked up Kirk Cousins but left him on the bench, where he ranked fourth in the league in scoring with 30 points.
  • All that glitters is not gold. Picked up Dustin Hopkins, who scored 6 points against his projected 8.20.
  • The 7 points scored by the Arizona Cardinals Defense fell short of their 10.20-point projection, the fourth straight game where that has happened.
  • Of the 9 starters on Hilohoop, 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.
