Smooth Moves by The Big Ben Theory

  • Looks like somebody has an eye for talent. Acquired Gary Barnidge, who exceeded his scoring projection by 175.1%, the fifth-highest percentage in the league.
  • Made the right move in benching Leonard Hankerson, who had 3.70 points, the lowest total of any starting WR on The Big Ben Theory.
  • The 20.70 points scored by Alshon Jeffery was the fourth-highest score by a WR in the league this week.
  • Lamar Miller scored 17.80 points, which ranked seventh out of all the RBs in the league this week.
  • The 17.00 points by the Denver Broncos Defense topped a projected 10.09, extending their overachievement streak to four weeks.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Tough week, #Omaha. We can only assume that all your starters were on bye this week.
  • Who needs offense when the defense is so dominant!? #Omaha got outscored 17.00 - 5.00 by The Big Ben Theory at the DEF position.
  • #Omaha lost despite having only 3 of their 9 starters score less than their projected points.
  • #Omaha lost even though both of their WRs scored above their projected points.

What If

  • If The Big Ben Theory played #Omaha every week, they would be 3-3 this season.
  • The Big Ben Theory would have beaten nine other teams besides #Omaha this week.
  • The Big Ben Theory would be 3-2 if they played the same schedule as #Omaha.
  • If The Big Ben Theory had played every team in the league each week, they would be 28-38.
  • In addition to The Big Ben Theory, #Omaha would have lost to just one other team this week.
  • And they say procrastination doesn't pay off! Had they played each other last week, The Big Ben Theory would have lost to #Omaha 94.12 - 71.34.
  • If they played the same schedule as The Big Ben Theory, #Omaha would be 3-2.
  • #Omaha would be 34-32 if they played every team every week.

Game Notes

  • Hey, I'm sure The Big Ben Theory appreciates the tough competition. In the loss, #Omaha had the second-highest losing score in the league this season with 112.64 points.
  • The margin of victory of 0.90 points was the smallest in the league this season.
  • With 113.54 points, The Big Ben Theory had their highest score so far this season.
  • Not going to name names, but some people here aren't pulling their weight. Forget it, Eddie Lacy needs to step it up! He scored 2.00 points against a projected 13.76 in the win, and has now scored below his projection in five straight games.
  • The Big Ben Theory improves to 1-1 in close games this season.
  • #Omaha could not pull out the win, but Jonathan Stewart did perform well with the fifth-best RB score in the league this week, scoring 20.60 points.

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.
