    Smooth Moves by tbd

    • Matt Ryan is making an early case for League MVP with a league-leading 31.42 points this week.

    • What do Apache helicopters, F-117 Nighthawks and Kelvin Benjamin have in common? They are all dangerous aerial weapons. He ranked ninth in the league in scoring among WRs this week with 15.20 points.
    • Did you use any black magic this week? tbd was still able to pull out a win with only 5 of their 10 starters exceeding their projected points.
    • The San Diego Chargers Defense exceeded scoring projections by 66.1%, with 9.00 points against a projected 5.42.

    Toyota Missed Opportunities

    • Did not take BenJarvus Green-Ellis (0 points) out of the starting lineup this week.
    • With 6.60 points versus a projected 12.23, Frank Gore scored only 54.0% of his projected point total.
    • Eddie Royal had the fewest points of any starter on the team with 1.90 points.

    What If

    • tbd would have beaten eight other teams besides Mean Green Machine this week.
    • If tbd had scored 17.53 more points, they would have beaten all teams in the league this week.
    • Besides tbd, Mean Green Machine would have been defeated by 10 other teams this week.
    • If Mean Green Machine had scored 25.77 fewer points, they would have lost to all teams in the league this week.

    Game Notes

    • tbd won but failed to cover the 8.51-point spread, winning by 1.30 points.
    • tbd underachieved in the win, recording 99.8% of their projected 94.02, while Mean Green Machine performed better than expected, beating their 85.50-point projection by 8.2%.
    • Remember when they needed to remind Forrest Gump to STOP? Well, they may need to remind this group of runnings backs to GO. With 3.90 points, tbd got the lowest combined scoring output from the RB position for any team this week.
    • In the loss, the Houston Texans Defense ranked eighth in the league in scoring and beat their scoring projection by 256.5%, which led the matchup.
    • Even in the loss, the 19.40 points scored by Knowshon Moreno was the third-highest score of any RB in the league this week.
    • Although tbd won, they got little help from Doug Martin, who only put up 1.60 points of a projected 12.00.

    Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 1

    Peyton Manning Den - QB 2013 vs. Baltimore 27–for-42 passing, 462 yards, 7 TD passes, 0 INTs Peyton Manning announced his record-breaking intentions with authority to open the '13 campaign, throwing for seven touchdowns against the Ravens, tying an NFL-record that hadn't previously been accomplished since 1969.

    His 462 passing yards were also the second-best mark of his storied career, helping produce a fantasy performance that will go down as one of the greatest performances by a signal-caller to date, with only a Michael Vick explosion against Washington on November 15th, 2010 ranking ahead of it. An interesting side note to Peyton's monster Week 1 effort was that little brother Eli Manning put forth the second-best QB performance, throwing for 450 yards and four touchdowns at Dallas.
    Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
