    Smooth Moves by Amy's Team

    • Not the best, but in the conversation. Peyton Manning ranked ninth in the league in scoring this week with 21.02 points. It was also the fourth-highest score of any player on Amy's Team this season.
    • What do Apache helicopters, F-117 Nighthawks and Victor Cruz have in common? They are all dangerous aerial weapons. He ranked seventh in the league in scoring among WRs this week with 16.70 points.
    • The Cincinnati Bengals Defense scored a season-high 12.00 points.
    • Apparently playing within themselves was good enough. Amy's Team won despite having only 3 of their 9 starters exceed their projected points.
    • Wow, I guess RBs really don't matter much. Amy's Team won even though both of their RBs scored below their projected points.

    Toyota Missed Opportunities

    • After that performance, we have to wonder if danielle's Team cares about becoming a Hall Of Famer at all. That's right, you're being judged by an online recap. 
    • Left the Indianapolis Colts Defense on the bench, where they scored 17.00 points and beat their projected point total by 112.9%, the seventh-highest percentage in the league this week.
    • Should have started Delanie Walker, who underachieved, but still had more points than the starting TE with 5.40 against a projected 6.84.
    • Toby Gerhart scored 6.30 points against a projected 11.99 and has now underachieved in every game this season.
    • Vincent Jackson has scored below his projection in every game this season after scoring 7.50 points against a projected 11.18 this week.

    What If

    • If Amy's Team played danielle's Team every week, they would be 2-1 this season.
    • Besides danielle's Team, Amy's Team would have beaten only two other teams this week.
    • Amy's Team would be 1-1 if they played the same schedule as danielle's Team.
    • Amy's Team would be 11-16 if they played every team every week.
    • Besides Amy's Team, danielle's Team would have been defeated by six other teams this week.
    • Timing really is everything. Amy's Team would have lost to danielle's Team 89.44 - 78.58 had they played each other last week.
    • If they played the same schedule as Amy's Team, danielle's Team would be 0-2.
    • danielle's Team would be 13-14 if they played every team every week.

    Game Notes

    • "They ain't nothing but paper champions. That's all they are, and that's all they're ever going to be." Did Lee Flowers say that or everybody in this league? Amy's Team scored 83.62 points against a projected 91.04 and has underachieved every week this season.
    • Despite being on the winning team, Torrey Smith scored 2.50 points against a projected 7.43 and has now underachieved in every game this season.
    • danielle's Team got 16.30 points from their WRs, the lowest combined scoring output from the WR position for any team this week.

    The 225-yard, 3 TD performance against the 'Skins was the start of a four year run ('01-'05) in which Holmes would score 83 touchdowns and average 140.8 yards from scrimmage over 58-game span.
    Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
