Smooth Moves by Pork Pie

  • Pork Pie scored massive brownie points with the Toyota Hall of Fame this week. Too bad brownie points don't count as real points. Not that you need help.
  • With 19.68 points, Andrew Luck led a matchup in points scored for the third time this season.
  • Pork Pie was still able to pull out a win with only 2 of their 10 starters exceeding their projected points.
  • Ezekiel Elliott put the team on his back with 12.70 points, the 10th-highest score among RBs in the league this week.
  • Sterling Shepard has now overachieved in three straight games after scoring 11.00 points against a projected 7.25.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Some teams are destined to beat teams like Rachel's Genius Team and move on to Toyota Hall of Fame greatness. Ironically, you are included in that destiny, because you played yourself.
  • Did not start Jameis Winston, who led the team in scoring with 17.44 points.
  • Michael Crabtree was last in the matchup in scoring and achieved only 6.4% of his projected point total, his lowest percentage of the season.
  • 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. Cam Newton scored a season-low 12.38 points, 54.4% of his projected 22.77, which is his lowest percentage of the year.
  • 7 of the 10 starters scored less than their projected points.

What If

  • If Pork Pie played Rachel's Genius Team every week, they'd be 7-4 this year.
  • Besides Rachel's Genius Team, Pork Pie would have beaten only one other team this week.
  • Were they resting their players for this week? Pork Pie would have defeated Rachel's Genius Team 132.54 - 95.84 had they played each other last week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Rachel's Genius Team, Pork Pie would be 6-3.
  • If Pork Pie had played every team in the league each week, they would be 52-47.
  • Rachel's Genius Team would have lost to every other team in the league this week.
  • Rachel's Genius Team would be 3-6 if they played the same schedule as Pork Pie.
  • If they played every team every week, Rachel's Genius Team would be 41-58.

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.
