Smooth Moves by EatSleepGronkRepeat

  • If this were a dream sequence, you'd hear a deep voice announce, "EatSleepGronkRepeat, the Toyota Hall of Famer." But it's not.
  • The Minnesota Vikings Defense had the highest score of any DEF in the league this season with 26.00 points.
  • The fourth-highest RB score of the week and the eighth-highest RB score of the season came from LeSean McCoy, who scored 23.60 points.
  • Made a good move in sitting Spencer Ware this week. He brought in 6.30 points, the fewest of any RB on the team.
  • Do you put a LB or DB on him? You might have to put both on him if this continues. Greg Olsen scored 6.40 points to rank fifth among TEs in the league this week.

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.
  • Christine Michael was left on the bench, where he bested his expected 12.62-point total by putting up 23.10 points.
  • All that glitters is not gold. Picked up Jacob Tamme, who scored 2.80 points against his projected 6.18.
  • At the DEF position, Sackooooo got outscored 26.00 - 3.00 by EatSleepGronkRepeat.
  • Hate to point fingers for why a team loses, but RIGHT HERE. The Seattle Seahawks Defense had a season-low 3.00 points against a projected 8.53 and scored below their projection for the second time this season.
