    Smooth Moves by Jeremy's Team

    • The Arizona Cardinals Defense had 25.00 points, the second-highest DEF score of the week and the third-highest score among DEF in the league this season.
    • With 18.30 points, Julius Thomas had the second-highest TE score of the week and the eighth-best TE score in the league this season.
    • The 17.80 points scored by Jamaal Charles was the third-highest score of any RB in the league this week.
    • DeMarco Murray put the team on his back with 13.10 points, the ninth-highest score among RBs in the league this week.
    • Torrey Smith overachieved by 66.3%, scoring 13.50 points against a projected 8.12.

    Toyota Roster Tune-up

    • David's Team should have scored more than 121.36 in order to win. That's Hall Of Fame level insight. 
    • Should have started Mark Ingram, who underachieved, but still had the most points of any RB on the team with 13.90 against a projected 13.98.
    • Whoever gave you this advice, you might want to lose their number. Picked up and started Joe Flacco, who then scored below his 17.04-point projection with 10.56 points.
    • Curiosity killed the cat. It also killed David's Team this week. They acquired and started Owen Daniels, who then finished last on the team in scoring with 2.00 points.
    • David's Team could have used more points from the TE position, where Jeremy's Team beat them 18.30 - 2.00.

    What If

    • Jeremy's Team would be 3-7 if they played David's Team every week.
    • Jeremy's Team would have beaten seven other teams besides David's Team this week.
    • If they played the same schedule as David's Team, Jeremy's Team would be 5-3.
    • If Jeremy's Team had played every team in the league each week, they would be 60-30.
    • In addition to Jeremy's Team, David's Team would have lost to just one other team this week.
    • Timing really is everything. Jeremy's Team would have lost to David's Team 116.06 - 97.52 had they played each other last week.
    • If they played the same schedule as Jeremy's Team, David's Team would be 8-0.
    • If they played every team every week, David's Team would be 71-19.

    Game Notes

    • Even though David's Team lost, they had two players score higher than the leading scorer for Jeremy's Team.
    • Maybe the league is colluding against them. All three of the losses for David's Team this season have come when their opponent scores higher than their season average.
    • David's Team scored 118.96 points against a projected 100.04 and beat their scoring projection for the eighth time this season, including the last three weeks in a row.
    • David's Team had the highest losing score in the league this season with 118.96 points.
    • In the loss, the Philadelphia Eagles Defense had the highest score of any DEF in the league this season with 31.00 points.
    • The margin of victory for the matchup ended up being the smallest in the league this week at 2.40 points.
    • David's Team had their three-game win streak snapped in the loss.
    • Rueben Randle did little to help Jeremy's Team, underperforming versus projections for the fourth straight game with 3.90 points against a projected 9.63.

    Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 10

    Chad Johnson CIN - WR 2006 vs. San Diego 11 catches, 260 receiving yards, 2 TDs In a storied, and controversial, career that spanned 10 years, 766 catches and two surnames, Johnson (or Ochocinco, if you prefer) was never finer than in Week 10 of '06 when he posted 260 receiving yards (A Bengals record) and two touchdowns against San Diego in 49-41 loss.

    It currently stands as the third-highest receiving yardage total for a player in a losing effort. The following week, Johnson nearly matched his prolific Week 10 fantasy effort, going for 190 yards and three touchdowns. His two-week yardage tally of 450 yards broke John Taylor's record (448 yards) for back-to-back games. And you can bet he gave the opposing defensive backs an earful as he was in the process of making history.
    Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
