Smooth Moves by Rock Crushers

  • Congrats, Rock Crushers. You outscored your opponent. Next up: outperforming all other Fantasy Football players to get into the Toyota Hall of Fame.
  • What do Apache helicopters, F-117 Nighthawks and A.J. Green have in common? They are all dangerous aerial weapons. He ranked fourth in the league in scoring among WRs this week with 17.13 points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • With 1.63 points, Brandin Cooks was last on the team in scoring and got only 18.4% of his 8.86 projected points, his lowest percentage of the season.
