Smooth Moves by Filthy

  • Marquess Wilson, who was picked up by Filthy, scored 14.50 points against a projected 6.87, topping his projection by 111.1%.
  • James Jones has now overachieved in every game this season after scoring 13.70 points against a projected 8.41.
  • With 21.27 points, Carson Palmer scored the most points in a matchup for the third time this season.
  • There are rumors that the military wants to model a new all-terrain vehicle based off of DeMarco Murray. He had the sixth-highest score among RBs in the league this week with 18.00 points.
  • The New England Patriots Defense scored a season-high 14.00 points and beat their scoring projection by a season-high 87.7%.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Dry your tears, study more articles and forget that your 130.80 to 117.80 loss ever happened.
  • Had a chance to start Isaiah Crowell, who outdid his scoring projection of 7.59 points by scoring 14.70 points.
  • Picked up the Jacksonville Jaguars Defense, which was last on the team in scoring with 1.00 point.
  • Whoever gave you this advice, you might want to lose their number. Picked up and started Boobie Dixon, who then scored below his 9.09-point projection with 3.90 points.
  • A heated blanket would be a great gift for Calvin Johnson during this cold streak. He scored below his projection in three straight games after scoring 6.70 points against a projected 12.79 this week.

What If

  • If Filthy played PRICKS every week, they'd be 3-2 this year.
  • Filthy would have beaten six other teams besides PRICKS this week.
  • Were they resting their players for this week? Filthy would have defeated PRICKS 108.76 - 83.20 had they played each other last week.
  • Filthy would be 2-2 if they played the same schedule as PRICKS.
  • If Filthy had played every team in the league each week, they would be 29-16.
  • PRICKS would have lost to five other teams besides Filthy this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Filthy, PRICKS would be 3-1.
  • PRICKS would be 24-21 if they played every team every week.

Game Notes

  • Maybe the league is colluding against them. All three of the losses for PRICKS this season have come when their opponent scores higher than their season average.
  • Although PRICKS lost, they did put up the eighth-highest score for a losing team in the league this season.
  • The margin of victory for the matchup ended up being the smallest in the league this week at 13.00 points.
  • PRICKS got a combined 17.40 points from their QBs, their lowest combined scoring output from the QB position this season.
  • In the loss, the Pittsburgh Steelers Defense scored 13.00 points against a projected 6.75 and has now overachieved in three straight games.
  • Although Filthy won, it was no thanks to Antonio Brown, who scored 4.50 points and has now scored below his projection in three straight weeks.
  • In the loss, Antonio Gates scored 21.20 points, the fifth-highest TE score in the league this season.
  • Filthy outdid their projection in the win, while PRICKS came in under their point expectation. Filthy is now 3-1 when overachieving, while PRICKS falls to 1-2 when failing to reach their projection.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 5

Steve Largent Sea - WR 1987 vs. Detroit 15 catches, 261 yards, 3 TDs Hall of Fame receiver Steve Largent is no scrub, and he proved that emphatically in Week 5 of the strike-plagued ’87 season.

Largent crossed the picket line a week before the strike ended, affording him an opportunity to face a Detroit defense full of replacement players. Largent took full advantage of the sub-par competition, rolling up a dreamy PPR line of 15 catches, 261 yards and a TD hat trick. It was the last time in Largent’s storied NFL career that he would reach 100 yards or score multiple touchdowns in a game.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
