Not only did Cooch keep their momentum alive, but they did so in a decisive fashion. They were the highest score this week, which aided them to their third straight win after they nudged past Cowboys Suck 120.68 to 117.10. AC/DC once said: "It's a long way to the top if you want to rock and roll." However, in relatively short time, Cooch has rocked and rolled to take the top spot. When their streak started in Week 4, they were in just fourth place. They also have the highest scoring output in the league at 102.96 points per matchup. Cowboys Suck holds steady in third place with a 3-3 record. Cooch has now knocked over The Shit Pumpers (85.96 to 77.36) and JPC144 (111.80 to 99.38).

Smooth Moves by Cooch

  • Even NASA would be proud of this aerial performance. DeAndre Hopkins had 26.80 points, the highest WR score of the week and the eighth-highest WR score in the league this season.
  • Sat Thomas Rawls, who scored 0.80 points, fewer than any RB in the starting lineup.
  • Giovani Bernard scored 13.30 points against a projected 10.58 and has now overachieved in every game this season.
  • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just Emmanuel Sanders posterizing opponents. He had the seventh-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 16.90 points.
  • Jimmy Graham had the third-highest TE score in the league this week with 14.00 points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Some people are born losers, others develop it over time. Fortunately, there's a cure: Winning
  • Acquired and benched Jonathan Stewart, who scored 20.60 points and beat his projected point total by 166.7%, the fourth-highest percentage in the league.
  • It may be time to hire a new scouting director. Despite just picking up Shane Vereen, he had the lowest scoring output in the matchup with 0.60 points. This was 9.0% of his scoring projection, worst in the league.
  • With 4.00 points, the Carolina Panthers Defense had their lowest output of the season and tallied just 56.5% of their 7.08 projected points, their lowest percentage of the year.
  • Only 4 of the 9 starters on Cowboys Suck underachieved this week, but they still lost.

What If

  • If Cooch played Cowboys Suck every week, they would be 2-4 this season.
  • Cooch would have been undefeated if they played every team in the league this week.
  • Had they played each other last week, Cooch would have defeated Cowboys Suck 111.80 - 60.72.
  • If they played the same schedule as Cowboys Suck, Cooch would be 4-1.
  • If Cooch had played every team in the league each week, they would be 35-19.
  • Cowboys Suck would not have lost to any other team in the league besides Cooch this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Cooch, Cowboys Suck would be 3-2.
  • If they played every team every week, Cowboys Suck would be 34-20.

Game Notes

  • Maybe the league is colluding against them. All three of the losses for Cowboys Suck this season have come when their opponent scores higher than their season average.
  • This matchup had the top two scoring teams in the league this week.
  • With the win, Cooch has a three-game win streak, currently the longest in the league.
  • Abe Lincoln once said, "You cannot help people permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves." Somebody tell Matthew Stafford that. His 34.90 points led the league and was the second-most points scored this season, but Cowboys Suck could not get the win.
  • Don't you hate that guy that always has to one-up everybody? Cowboys Suck scored 117.10 points and lost. It is the second-highest losing score in the league this season.
  • Cooch was able to win with little help from Matt Bryant, who had a season-low 3.00 points and is on a five-week underperforming streak.
  • Cowboys Suck got a combined 17.10 points from their RBs, their lowest combined scoring output from the RB position this season.
  • The 3.58-point margin of victory was the smallest in the league this week.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 6

Jerry Rice SF - WR 1990 vs. Atlanta 13 catches, 225 yards, 5 TDs Jerry Rice is often called GOAT (which stands for Greatest Of All Time).

You can (unconvincingly) argue the validity of that moniker, but you can’t dispute the fact that in Week 6 of ’90 against the Falcons, Rice recorded the greatest fantasy tally by a wide receiver since at least the AFL/NFL merger in 1970. In fact, in that span, only Clinton Portis (’03) and Shaun Alexander (’02) posted better single-game fantasy lines in the Yahoo default scoring format.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
