Smooth Moves by House of Carr

  • Quarterbacks get the blame when the team loses and the glory when the team wins. With 26 points, Ben Roethlisberger had the third-highest score of any QB in the league this week and earned his praise.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Somehow, all of your players had two bye weeks this week. The Toyota Hall of Fame calls that a bye bye week. Yes, it's a bad joke, but it's still better than your score.
  • Kept Michael Thomas on the bench, where he scored the fifth-most points in the league and beat his projected point total by 153.5%, the fifth-highest percentage in the league.

  • Allen Robinson was last in the matchup in scoring with 4 points against a projected 15.12 and underachieved for the eighth time this season.
  • A heated blanket would be a great gift for Jordan Matthews during this cold streak. He scored below his projection in four straight games after scoring 8 points against a projected 17.43 this week.
