Smooth Moves by Chris's Crazy Team

  • The Toyota Hall of Fame would have its eyes on you for this week's win. But the Toyota Hall of Fame doesn't have eyes. Obviously.
  • Doug Baldwin was uncoverable, scoring the fourth-most points by a WR this week with 26.00 points. It also ranks as the ninth-greatest game by a WR this season.
  • Coby Fleener scored 20.90 points, the second-highest TE score of the week and the fourth-highest TE score in the league this season.
  • Lean, mean, and haunting your dreams. The Buffalo Bills Defense was a terror this week, accounting for 26.00 points. It was the highest DEF score of the week and the second-highest score among DEF in the league this season.
  • Not the best, but in the conversation. Dak Prescott ranked eighth in the league in scoring this week with 32.00 points. It was also the third-highest score of any player on Chris's Crazy Team this season.

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.
  • Did not start Carlos Hyde, who ranked seventh in the league in scoring and beat his scoring projection by 218.9%, the fourth-highest percentage in the league.
  • Stairway to Evans picked up Travis Benjamin, who then fell short of his 13.38-point projection by scoring 5.20 points.
  • Blake Bortles had his lowest score of the season with 14.40 points against a projected 24.53 and has now underachieved in every game this season.
  • Stairway to Evans had only 5 of their 11 starters underperform versus their projections, but they still lost.

What If

  • If Chris's Crazy Team played Stairway to Evans every week, they would be 2-1 this season.
  • Chris's Crazy Team would have beaten three other teams besides Stairway to Evans this week.
