Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Remember this moment, Eagles #1. This is the moment where you turn your team around and start managing like someone worthy of the Hall.
  • Ameer Abdullah was last in the matchup in scoring with 0.30 points against a projected 9.76 and has now underachieved in seven straight games.
  • The 4.70 points scored by Randall Cobb fell short of his 12.63-point projection, the fourth straight game where that has happened.
  • The best offense is a good defense. Eagles #1 got beat 15.00 - 5.00 by TCAM at the DEF position.
  • 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. Chris Ivory scored a season-low 5.10 points, 29.1% of his projected 17.55, which is his lowest percentage of the year.

What If

  • TCAM would be 36-36 if they played every team every week.
  • Besides TCAM, Eagles #1 would have been defeated by five other teams this week.
  • And they say procrastination doesn't pay off! Had they played each other last week, TCAM would have lost to Eagles #1 211.58 - 107.24.
  • Eagles #1 would be 3-4 if they played the same schedule as TCAM.
  • If they played every team every week, Eagles #1 would be 32-40.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 8

Ben Roethlisberger Pit - QB 2014 vs. Indianapolis 522 passing yards, 6 TD passes Through the first seven weeks of ’14, Big Ben ranked outside the top 20 in fantasy scoring among signal callers.

His slow start likely led many of his owners to look for other QB options for Week 8, when Roethlisberger finally emerged from hibernation to drop 522 passing yards and 6 TD passes on the Colts. You can be sure his owners didn’t make the same mistake the following week when the suddenly red-hot Roethlisberger threw for another half dozen touchdowns to go with 340 passing yards against Baltimore, becoming the first QB in NFL history to throw at least six touchdowns in back-to-back weeks.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
