ViVicVik's (sixth place, 3-2, 407.80 points) pushes Rivers Broncos (3-2, 484.18 points) closer to the dustbin of history and out of the top spot after beating them 83.12 to 75.22. Philip Rivers got 21.82 points and Hunter Henry scored 10.20. These two teams are tied for sixth place with 3-2 records, but it smells like BS, as Rivers Broncos knows they're the much better squad, leading in total points 484.18 to 407.80. While each team failed to meet expectations, ViVicVik's scored 92.2% of a projected 90.14 points to get the win.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Rivers Broncos, you can't win 'em all. But you can't lose 'em all if you wanna be in the Toyota Hall of Fame.
  • Acquired and benched Will Fuller V, who scored 18.20 points and beat his projected point total by 134.8%, the sixth-highest percentage in the league.
  • Left Adam Vinatieri on the bench, where he scored 18.00 points and beat his projected point total by 110.3%, the eighth-highest percentage in the league this week.
  • Could have started Eli Manning, who underachieved, but still had more points than the starting QB with 14.00 against a projected 17.11.
  • All that glitters is not gold. Picked up the Pittsburgh Steelers Defense, which scored 5.00 points against their projected 9.04.
