    Michael's Team has to like where their team is at after they put up the second-highest point total this week to beat SnakeBite 109.76 to 78.96. The winless 2008 Lions aren't role models, but no one tell that to SnakeBite. They have yet to crack the win column this year. SnakeBite was led by the tag team of Aaron Rodgers, with 25.96 points, and the Denver Broncos Defense, who scored 15.00. Michael's Team (2-4, 549.66 points) climbs into sixth place and SnakeBite (0-6, 496.76 points) stays mired in last place.

    Smooth Moves by Michael's Team

    • Just call him Fred Flintstone, because he was toting the rock all day long. Matt Forte had 27.70 points, the highest RB score of the week and the fourth-highest RB score in the league this season.
    • 7 of the 9 starters on Michael's Team exceeded their projected points.
    • What do Apache helicopters, F-117 Nighthawks and Jordy Nelson have in common? They are all dangerous aerial weapons. He ranked sixth in the league in scoring among WRs this week with 16.70 points.
    • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just Andre Johnson posterizing opponents. He had the ninth-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 13.90 points.
    • The 13.30 points scored by Lamar Miller was the eighth-highest score of any RB in the league this week.

    Toyota Missed Opportunities

    • SnakeBite should have scored more than 109.76 in order to win. That's Hall Of Fame level insight. 
    • Picked up Branden Oliver, who scored 18.40 points against a projected 12.52, but left him on the bench.
    • Jeremy Maclin was last on the team in scoring with 1.60 points, 13.9% of his projected 11.50, which is his lowest percentage of the season.
    • Michael's Team saw their RBs beat those on SnakeBite 41.00 - 13.30.
    • The WR corps couldn't keep pace with their counterparts from Michael's Team and were outscored 31.20 - 12.30.

    What If

    • If Michael's Team played SnakeBite every week, they would be 4-2 this season.
    • Michael's Team would have beaten seven other teams besides SnakeBite this week.
    • Were they resting their players for this week? Michael's Team would have defeated SnakeBite 111.62 - 97.74 had they played each other last week.
    • Michael's Team would be 2-3 if they played the same schedule as SnakeBite.
    • Michael's Team would be 29-25 if they played every team every week.
    • SnakeBite would have lost to four other teams besides Michael's Team this week.
    • If they played the same schedule as Michael's Team, SnakeBite would be 1-4.
    • SnakeBite would be 22-32 if they played every team every week.

    Game Notes

    • Looks like teams bring their A game when they see them on the schedule. Of the losses SnakeBite has had, four were against opponents who topped their season scoring average that week.
    • We don't condone cheating, but this group of wide receivers might want to spray Stickum on their gloves. The 12.30 total points by the WRs on SnakeBite was their lowest WR output this season.
    • Speed, strength, agility, vision, and intelligence. It was all on display this week when the RBs on Michael's Team collectively had their best week of the season with 41.00 points.
    • It was the biggest loss of the season for SnakeBite.
    • The 109.76 points scored by Michael's Team ranked second in the league this week.
    • SnakeBite stays in last place, where they have spent the entire season.
    • The margin of victory of 30.80 points was the second-highest margin in the league this week.
    • Michael's Team overachieved and improves to 1-2 when doing so, while SnakeBite fell short of their projection. They are now 0-4 when scoring less than expected.

    Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 6

    Trung Canidate STL - RB 2001 vs. New York Jets 23 carries, 195 rushing yards, 3 receptions, 37 receiving yards, 2 TDs Canidate's NFL candle burned briefly, but in Week 6 of '01, it also burned with the intensity of a 4,000-lumen halogen bulb.

    Against the Jets, Canidate rung up 232 yards from scrimmage, a sum that equated to more than 17 percent of Canidate's career yardage total (1,355) covering a 46-game span. Canidate would go on to top 100 rushing yards two more times in his career, but nothing would come close to matching the Big Apple beat down that he served the Jets.
    Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
