Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Remember that time you thought, "I don't need help from your stinking articles. I can beat Clearwater Beach Bum on my own." How'd it work out for you?

Game Notes

  • Clearwater Beach Bum has won three times this year when their opponent scored higher than their season average.
  • Clearwater Beach Bum was able to cover the 19.58-point spread in the win.
  • HashTaintSniffer got a combined 37.60 points from their WRs, their highest combined scoring output from the WR position this season.
  • Clearwater Beach Bum had two starters score more points than the highest-scoring starter for HashTaintSniffer.
  • Not going to name names, but some people here aren't pulling their weight. Forget it, Randall Cobb needs to step it up! He scored 3.70 points against a projected 11.02 in the win, and has now scored below his projection in four straight games.
  • Clearwater Beach Bum overachieved in the win, improving to 4-2 when beating their projected points this season, while HashTaintSniffer falls to 1-4 when scoring below their projected points.
  • Alshon Jeffery did his best in the loss, ranking sixth among all WRs in the league with 17.60 points.
  • If I had a performance like that, I'd probably go see the local hypnotist. Despite being on the winning team, Chris Ivory scored a season-low 4.10 points, just 31.1% of a projected 13.17, his lowest percentage of the season.

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.
