Smooth Moves by The Clowns

  • Who left this guy in free agency?? Colin Kaepernick responded to being picked up by scoring 42.00 points, the eighth-highest in the league.
  • With 23.00 points, LeGarrette Blount ranked fourth in scoring among all RBs in the league this week.
  • What do Apache helicopters, F-117 Nighthawks and Demaryius Thomas have in common? They are all dangerous aerial weapons. He ranked 10th in the league in scoring among WRs this week with 21.00 points.
  • The 12.00 points scored by C.J. Anderson were a season-high.
  • By scoring 16.00 points, Charles Clay beat his 9.68 projected points by 65.3%.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Well, that's embarrassing. Left Andrew Luck on the bench, where he ranked third in the league in scoring with 56.00 points.
  • Fantasy Football is a mental sport. Using your brain is a great way to ensure success.
  • Left the Denver Broncos Defense on the bench, where they scored 27.00 points and surpassed their scoring projection by 69.8%, the highest percentage of any player on the team.
  • Whoever gave you this advice, you might want to lose their number. Picked up and started Richard Rodgers, who then scored below his 9.40-point projection with 5.00 points.
  • Bigtime Allstars could have used more points from the TE position, where The Clowns beat them 16.00 - 5.00.

What If

  • If The Clowns played Bigtime Allstars every week, they'd be 3-3 this season.
  • The Clowns would have beaten five other teams besides Bigtime Allstars this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Bigtime Allstars, The Clowns would be 2-3.
  • If The Clowns had played every team in the league each week, they would be 26-28.
  • Besides The Clowns, Bigtime Allstars would have been defeated by six other teams this week.
  • Timing really is everything. The Clowns would have lost to Bigtime Allstars 144.00 - 111.50 had they played each other last week.
  • If they played the same schedule as The Clowns, Bigtime Allstars would be 2-3.
  • If they played every team every week, Bigtime Allstars would be 20-34.

Game Notes

  • Looks like teams bring their A game when they see them on the schedule. Of the losses Bigtime Allstars has had, three were against opponents who topped their season scoring average that week.
  • The loss is the third straight for Bigtime Allstars and extends the longest current losing streak in the league.
  • The Clowns was able to cover the 5.00-point spread in the win.
  • The Clowns was able to win with little help from the Buffalo Bills Defense, which had a season-low 2.00 points and is on a three-week underperforming streak.
  • With the win, The Clowns snapped their four-game losing streak.
  • Just because Robert Horry has seven NBA championship rings, doesn't mean he's one of the greats. Despite being on the winning team, Dan Carpenter scored 4.00 points against a projected 7.93 and has now underachieved in three straight games.
  • The Clowns outdid their projection in the win, while Bigtime Allstars came in under their point expectation. The Clowns is now 1-1 when overachieving, while Bigtime Allstars falls to 0-3 when failing to reach their projection.
  • Bigtime Allstars ranked eighth in the league in scoring 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.
