Smooth Moves by Down with the Crown

  • Outscoring your opponent is a sure-fire way to win each week. You can thank the Toyota Hall of Fame for that valuable insight.
  • The 10.00 points by Chris Boswell was the league-high for a K this week.
  • We won't judge you if you want to bow to Derek Carr. He ranked ninth in the league in scoring with 22.60 points.
  • Took Carson Palmer out of the starting lineup, who scored 15.02 points on the bench, fewer than the starting QB.
  • Rashad Jennings put the team on his back with 18.90 points, the fourth-highest score among RBs in the league this week.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Sometimes 93.58 is enough. Unfortunately, the Toyota Hall of Fame has confirmed this time it's a smaller number than 101.20.
  • Could have started Andy Dalton, who underachieved, but still had more points than the starting QB with 17.28 against a projected 17.87.
  • Whoever gave you this advice, you might want to lose their number. Picked up and started the New England Patriots Defense, which then scored below their 9.59-point projection with 6.00 points.
  • A heated blanket would be a great gift for Justin Tucker during this cold streak. He scored below his projection in three straight games after scoring 6.00 points against a projected 10.40 this week.
  • It's tough to win when your team leader gets embarrassed like this. At the QB position, Pure Brexcellence got outscored 22.60 - 8.68 by Down with the Crown.
