Smooth Moves by Piper Cubs

  • Latavius Murray didn't have the best score of the week, but there ain't no shame in his game. He had 20.90 points, the sixth-highest RB score of the week and the 10th-highest RB score in the league this season.
  • Brandon Marshall scored 14.90 points against a projected 11.14 and has now overachieved in every game this season.
  • Demaryius Thomas scored a season-high 13.20 points.
  • Even with only 4 of the 9 starters scoring more than their projection, Piper Cubs was still able to win.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Losing is a proven way not to win a game. For a more successful season, try not losing.
  • JPC144 had 7 starters fail to reach their projections.
  • Note to self: don't start a player when they're going to have their worst game of the season. Anquan Boldin had a season-low 1.60 points against a projected 7.24 and underachieved for the second time this season.
  • The New England Patriots Defense did not meet their 10.53-point projection this week, the second time that's happened this season. Their 5.00 points were also a season-low.
  • Hate to point fingers for why a team loses, but RIGHT HERE. Martellus Bennett had a season-low 1.50 points against a projected 5.84 and scored below his projection for the second time this season.

What If

  • If Piper Cubs played JPC144 every week, they'd be 2-1 this season.
  • Besides JPC144, Piper Cubs would have beaten only two other teams this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as JPC144, Piper Cubs would be 0-2.
  • If Piper Cubs had played every team in the league each week, they would be 12-15.
  • Besides Piper Cubs, JPC144 would have been defeated by seven other teams this week.
  • And they say procrastination doesn't pay off! Had they played each other last week, Piper Cubs would have lost to JPC144 109.10 - 94.14.
  • JPC144 would be 1-1 if they played the same schedule as Piper Cubs.
  • If they played every team every week, JPC144 would be 11-16.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 3

Ronnie Brown Mia - RB 2007 vs. New York Jets 112 rushing yards, 99 receiving yards, 3 TDs What can Ronnie Brown do for you? Well, if it’s Week 3, the answer is likely to be, “an awful lot.” Not only did Brown flex his run/catch skills against the Jets in Week 3 of ’07, totaling 211 yards from scrimmage and three scores, but he also flashed in Week 3 of 2008, rushing for 113 yards and scoring four times against New England.

And while he did little as a receiver in that contest (9 yards), he did contribute to the passing game by tossing a 19-yard TD pass. In Brown’s first five NFL seasons, he topped 100 total yards in each of his five Week 3 contests.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
