Smooth Moves by The Grateful Dez

  • The Toyota Hall of Fame would have its eyes on you for this week's win. But the Toyota Hall of Fame doesn't have eyes. Obviously.
  • Drew Brees had the eighth-most points in the league this season with 40, leading the league in points for the week.
  • Expect to see some trade offers for Antonio Brown. He ranked third in the league in scoring with 32 points.
  • Took Chris Boswell out of the starting lineup, who scored 4 points on the bench, fewer than the starting K.
  • Do you put a LB or DB on him? You might have to put both on him if this continues. Delanie Walker scored 14 points to rank fifth among TEs in the league this week.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Sometimes 92 is enough. Unfortunately, the Toyota Hall of Fame has confirmed this time it's a smaller number than 152.
  • The best offense is a good defense. The Renaissance Men got beat 15 - 7 by The Grateful Dez at the DEF position.
  • It's times like these when it's important to support your players when they're down. So move the mouse pointer away from the DROP button. Larry Fitzgerald scored a season-low 9 points, 49.9% of his projected 18.04, which is his lowest percentage of the year.
  • T.J. Yeldon had two season-lows this week. He scored a season-low 2 points and recorded only 23.4% of his 8.54-point projection.
  • Of the 9 starters on The Renaissance Men, 6 underperformed versus their projections.
