Smooth Moves by EatSleepGronkRepeat

  • The 16.80 points scored by Tyler Eifert was the highest TE score in the league this week.

  • Dontrelle Inman scored 13.10 points, the 10th-highest WR score in the league this week.

  • 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.

  • Could have started Cam Newton, who underachieved, but still had more points than the starting QB with 12.50 against a projected 20.73.

  • Jay Ajayi did little to help EatSleepGronkRepeat, underperforming versus projections for the fifth straight game with 6.30 points against a projected 12.02.
