Smooth Moves by Avenging Ninjas

  • Expect to see some trade offers for Russell Wilson. He ranked seventh in the league in scoring with 74.94 points.
  • DeMarco Murray scored 28.30 points, which ranked third out of all the RBs in the league this week.
  • Matt Forte put the team on his back with 21.90 points, the seventh-highest score among RBs in the league this week.
  • What do Apache helicopters, F-117 Nighthawks and Keenan Allen have in common? They are all dangerous aerial weapons. He ranked 10th in the league in scoring among WRs this week with 15.70 points.
  • Avenging Ninjas won even with Jason Witten in the starting lineup, who didn't score any points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • You gave it the old college try. Unfortunately for you, this isn't college ball. This is professional football at the national level; you know the acronym.
  • Left Alshon Jeffery on the bench, where he scored 24.70 points, exceeding his scoring projection by 115.3%, the highest percentage in the matchup.
  • The Buffalo Bills Defense had -1.00 point against a projected 5.86 to finish last in the league in scoring and has now underachieved in three straight games.
  • Whoever gave you this advice, you might want to lose their number. Picked up and started Charcandrick West, who then scored below his 12.05-point projection with 2.90 points.
  • It's times like these when it's important to support your players when they're down. So move the mouse pointer away from the DROP button. Le'Veon Bell scored a season-low 13.80 points, 68.7% of his projected 20.09, which is his lowest percentage of the year.

  • G Men would be 2-3 if they played the same schedule as Avenging Ninjas.
  • If they played every team every week, G Men would be 22-32.

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.
