Smooth Moves by The intern.

  • Tyler Eifert had 21.00 points, the second-highest TE score of the week and the sixth-highest TE score in the league this season.

  • In scoring 12.30 points, T.J. Yeldon put up his largest point total of the year.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Now that SHAZAM got that embarrassing loss out of the way, let's work on our Toyota Hall of Fame potential.
  • Jason Witten was last in the matchup in scoring with 1.30 points against a projected 8.22 and has now underachieved in four straight games.
  • Whoever gave you this advice, you might want to lose their number. Picked up and started Kirk Cousins, who then scored below his 13.69-point projection with 8.40 points.
  • The TE position was a letdown for SHAZAM, where they were outscored 21.00 - 1.30 by The intern.
  • The 9.20 points scored by Russell Wilson was a season-low. He had a projected 14.70-point total, and has now underachieved in three straight games.

What If

  • If The intern. played SHAZAM every week, they'd be 3-2 this year.
  • The intern. would have beaten three other teams besides SHAZAM this week.
  • The intern. would be 2-2 if they played the same schedule as SHAZAM.
  • If The intern. had played every team in the league each week, they would be 20-25.
  • SHAZAM would have been beaten by every other team in the league this week.
  • Timing really is everything. The intern. would have lost to SHAZAM 129.34 - 97.16 had they played each other last week.
  • If they played the same schedule as The intern., SHAZAM would be 3-1.
  • SHAZAM would be 23-22 if they played every team every week.

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.
