Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • With 3.40 points, Vincent Jackson was last on the team in scoring and got only 38.0% of his 8.94 projected points, his lowest percentage of the season.
  • TCAM was faced with 2 starters coming up empty in points.

What If

  • If GreenBaller played TCAM every week, they would be 2-3 this season.
  • GreenBaller would have beaten seven other teams besides TCAM this week.
  • GreenBaller would be 1-3 if they played the same schedule as TCAM.
  • GreenBaller would be 23-22 if they played every team every week.
  • Besides GreenBaller, TCAM would have been defeated by six other teams this week.
  • Timing really is everything. GreenBaller would have lost to TCAM 137.04 - 69.40 had they played each other last week.
  • TCAM would be 3-1 if they played the same schedule as GreenBaller.
  • If they played every team every week, TCAM would be 27-18.

Game Notes

  • GreenBaller got a combined 42.20 points from their TEs, the highest combined scoring output from the TE position for any team this season.

  • Stephen Gostkowski scored 15.00 points against a projected 8.76 in the loss and has now beaten his projection in three straight games.
  • Although GreenBaller won, it was no thanks to Eddie Lacy, who scored 3.50 points and has now scored below his projection in four straight weeks.
  • This is the biggest margin of defeat of the season for TCAM.
  • The margin of victory of 40.30 points was the second-highest margin in the league this 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.
