    Smooth Moves by Zach's Team

    • The 17.00 points by Stephen Gostkowski was the league-high for a K this week.
    • There are rumors that the military wants to model a new all-terrain vehicle based off of Giovani Bernard. He had the third-highest score among RBs in the league this week with 21.70 points.
    • Even with two starters scoring zero points, Zach's Team was still able to win.
    • Did you use any black magic this week? Zach's Team was still able to pull out a win with only 3 of their 9 starters exceeding their projected points.
    • Perhaps this is how backups become starters. Zach's Team won with three players on the bench that did not play this week.

    Toyota Missed Opportunities

    • Denny's Team may have missed the opportunity for a win, but they gained an opportunity to be mercilessly taunted by Zach's Team. 
    • Did not start T.Y. Hilton, who ranked fourth in the league in scoring and beat his scoring projection by 179.8%, the second-highest percentage in the league.
    • Should have started Matthew Stafford, who underachieved, but still had more points than the starting QB with 11.50 against a projected 17.00.
    • Denny's Team had 7 of their 9 starters score less than their projected points.
    • Our kicker can beat up your kicker. Denny's Team got outscored 17.00 - 4.00 by Zach's Team at the K position.

    • Zach's Team would have lost to every other team in the league besides Denny's Team this week.
    • If they played the same schedule as Denny's Team, Zach's Team would be 1-4.
    • If Zach's Team had played every team in the league each week, they would be 12-42.
    • Denny's Team would have lost to every other team in the league this week.
    • Timing really is everything. Zach's Team would have lost to Denny's Team 67.34 - 55.40 had they played each other last week.
    • If they played the same schedule as Zach's Team, Denny's Team would be 3-2.
    • Denny's Team would be 26-28 if they played every team every week.

    Game Notes

    • Apparently these two squads are resting their starters for next week. They were the two lowest-scoring teams in the league this week.
    • Both of the wins this season for Zach's Team have been upset victories.
    • The 65.60 points scored by Zach's Team is the lowest winning score in the league this season.
    • It was the lowest score of the season for Denny's Team. Their 56.54 points were also last in the league in scoring for the week.
    • What good are running backs if they are running backwards instead of forwards? The 10.00 total points by the RBs on Denny's Team was their smallest RB output this season.
    • Zach's Team had two starters score more points than the highest-scoring starter for Denny's Team.
    • Not going to name names, but some people here aren't pulling their weight. Forget it, Cordarrelle Patterson needs to step it up! He scored 1.70 points against a projected 6.01 in the win, and has now scored below his projection in five straight games.
    • Despite being on the winning team, the Cincinnati Bengals Defense was last in the league in scoring with -2.00 points against a projected 8.40 and underachieved for the third time this season.

    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.
