    Smooth Moves by Porcupine Speedboat

    • Finder keepers, loser weepers. Traded for the New England Patriots Defense, which beat their scoring projection by 219.8%, which was the highest percentage among the two teams.
    • Jordy Nelson felt like the Rodney Dangerfield of football, 'no respect at all' with this week's projected points. He scored the sixth-most points in the league and beat his projected point total by 157.4%, the fifth-highest percentage in the league.
    • Expect to see some trade offers for Andrew Luck. He ranked eighth in the league in scoring with 24 points.
    • Put WR Roddy White on the bench, where he scored 4 points, fewer than any WR in the starting lineup.
    • Benched Tom Brady, who had the lowest QB score on the team with 11 points.

    Toyota Missed Opportunities

    • Not reading the expert articles from the Hall Of Fame. And if they did, maybe they should pay better attention when they read.
    • Moxiedrinkers picked up Kelvin Benjamin, who then fell short of his 8.06-point projection by scoring 4 points.
    • The WRs on Moxiedrinkers let them down, resulting in a 44 - 16 difference at the position.
    • Who needs offense when the defense is so dominant!? Moxiedrinkers got outscored 26 - 9 by Porcupine Speedboat at the DEF position.
    • Of the 9 starters on Moxiedrinkers, 5 underperformed versus their projections.

    What If

    • Porcupine Speedboat would be 2-0 if they played Moxiedrinkers every week.
    • Porcupine Speedboat would have beaten every other team in the league this week.
    • Were they resting their players for this week? Porcupine Speedboat would have defeated Moxiedrinkers 114 - 87 had they played each other last week.
    • Porcupine Speedboat would be 14-0 if they played every team every week.
    • Moxiedrinkers would have beaten every other team in the league besides Porcupine Speedboat this week.

    Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 2

    Chris Johnson Ten - RB 2009 vs. Houston 16 carries, 197 rushing yards, 9 receptions, 87 receiving yards, 3 TDs In the opening week of the '09 campaign, Titans RB Chris Johnson did little to tip his hand that he was about to threaten the NFL's all-time single-season rushing record, debuting that season with a meager 57 rushing yards (0 TD) against Pittsburgh.

    But in Week 2, he let the cat out of the bag with an explosive 284 total yard effort against the Texans that included a TD hat trick. In a season in which he garnered the nickname CJ2K for the 2,006 rushing yards that he finished the season with, Week 2 was his finest individual fantasy effort.
    Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
