    Mothballs Smell earned their third win in a row when they dismantled David's Team 91.40 to 52.92. They got a lift from Andrew Luck, who led the team with 25.60 points and DeMarco Murray who had 20.60. The streak has been a shot in the arm for Mothballs Smell. They've climbed from sixth place to third since Week 4. They're doing it by scoring a lot of points and they own the second-highest overall point total in the league, averaging 105.28 points per matchup.

    Smooth Moves by Mothballs Smell

    • Expect to see some trade offers for Andrew Luck. He ranked 10th in the league in scoring with 25.60 points.
    • With 20.60 points, DeMarco Murray ranked fourth in scoring among all RBs in the league this week.
    • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just Demaryius Thomas posterizing opponents. He had the second-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 18.40 points.
    • Mothballs Smell won even with Garrett Graham in the starting lineup, who didn't score any points.
    • Apparently playing within themselves was good enough. Mothballs Smell won despite having only 4 of their 9 starters exceed their projected points.

    Toyota Missed Opportunities

    • After that performance, we have to wonder if David's Team cares about becoming a Hall Of Famer at all. That's right, you're being judged by an online recap. 
    • Left Cam Newton on the bench, where he led the league in scoring with 35.06 points.
    • Had a chance to start Larry Fitzgerald, who outdid his scoring projection of 8.47 points by scoring 15.80 points.
    • Should have started the Miami Dolphins Defense, which underachieved, but still had more points than the starting DEF with 5.00 against a projected 6.69.
    • Brian Quick, who David's Team picked up this week, scored below his 8.33-point projection with 1.00 point.

    • Mothballs Smell would have beaten five other teams besides David's Team this week.
    • Were they resting their players for this week? Mothballs Smell would have defeated David's Team 118.48 - 88.42 had they played each other last week.
    • Mothballs Smell would be 4-1 if they played the same schedule as David's Team.
    • Mothballs Smell would be 53-13 if they played every team every week.
    • David's Team would have been beaten by every other team in the league this week.

    Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 6

    Trung Canidate STL - RB 2001 vs. New York Jets 23 carries, 195 rushing yards, 3 receptions, 37 receiving yards, 2 TDs Canidate's NFL candle burned briefly, but in Week 6 of '01, it also burned with the intensity of a 4,000-lumen halogen bulb.

    Against the Jets, Canidate rung up 232 yards from scrimmage, a sum that equated to more than 17 percent of Canidate's career yardage total (1,355) covering a 46-game span. Canidate would go on to top 100 rushing yards two more times in his career, but nothing would come close to matching the Big Apple beat down that he served the Jets.
    Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
