Smooth Moves by Matt's Team

  • Outscoring your opponent is a sure-fire way to win each week. You can thank the Toyota Hall of Fame for that valuable insight.
  • With 30.50 points, David Johnson led the league in scoring and had the highest score of any RB in the league this season.
  • A good team always has a good general and Andrew Luck proved that this week. He had the fifth-highest QB score in the league this week with 22.18 points.
  • The 11.00 points scored by Dwayne Allen was the fourth-highest point total among TEs in the league this week.
  • With only 3 of their 9 starters beating their projected points, Matt's Team was still able to win.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • It's okay to regret not taking a sick day to study the Toyota Hall of Fame's articles. But it's not okay to do it again.
  • All that glitters is not gold. Picked up the Los Angeles Rams Defense, which scored 4.00 points against their projected 6.06.
  • A heated blanket would be a great gift for Chandler Catanzaro during this cold streak. He scored below his projection in three straight games after scoring 7.00 points against a projected 10.31 this week.
  • 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. Aaron Rodgers scored a season-low 17.86 points, 77.5% of his projected 23.04, which is his lowest percentage of the year.
  • 6 of the starters on North Dallas 40 scored less than their projected points.
