Smooth Moves by Couch Burners

  • Larry Fitzgerald played out of his mind, scoring the sixth-most points by a WR this week with 29.90 points. It also ranks as the 10th-greatest game by a WR this season.
  • The 29.90 points scored by Cam Newton was the third-highest QB score of the week and is the fourth-highest QB score in the league this season.
  • With 13.00 points, Dan Carpenter had his highest score of the season and beat his projected point total by a season-high 62.9%.
  • 5 of 9 players in the starting lineup for Couch Burners topped their projected points.
  • Couch Burners won even with Chris Ivory in the starting lineup, who didn't score any points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Dry your tears, study more articles and forget that your 107.40 to 103.42 loss ever happened.
  • Should have started Chris Johnson, who beat his scoring projection with 27.50 points against a projected 11.04.
  • A team is only as strong as its weakest link and, in this case, that link was rusted through. The Miami Dolphins Defense had the lowest score in the league this week with -4.00 points.
  • After a season-low 4.60 points against a projected 10.39, Doug Martin has now scored below his projection in every game this season.
  • Note to self: don't start a player when they're going to have their worst game of the season. Matt Bryant had a season-low 7.00 points against a projected 8.49 and underachieved for the second time this season.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 3

Ronnie Brown Mia - RB 2007 vs. New York Jets 112 rushing yards, 99 receiving yards, 3 TDs What can Ronnie Brown do for you? Well, if it’s Week 3, the answer is likely to be, “an awful lot.” Not only did Brown flex his run/catch skills against the Jets in Week 3 of ’07, totaling 211 yards from scrimmage and three scores, but he also flashed in Week 3 of 2008, rushing for 113 yards and scoring four times against New England.

And while he did little as a receiver in that contest (9 yards), he did contribute to the passing game by tossing a 19-yard TD pass. In Brown’s first five NFL seasons, he topped 100 total yards in each of his five Week 3 contests.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
