Smooth Moves by Psycho Anna

  • The 17.00 points scored by Stephen Gostkowski was the highest K score of the week and is the fifth-highest K score in the league this season.
  • 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.
  • With 9.40 points, Rob Gronkowski had the fifth-highest score of any TE in the league this week.
  • The San Francisco 49ers Defense scored 14.00 points and beat their scoring projection by 94.4%, which led the matchup.
  • Did you use any black magic this week? Psycho Anna was still able to pull out a win with only 4 of their 9 starters exceeding their projected points.

Toyota Missed Opportunities

  • Booger may have missed the opportunity for a win, but they gained an opportunity to be mercilessly taunted by Psycho Anna. 
  • This is one of those mistakes that you continuously think about for ten years. Did not start Philip Rivers, who scored 25.82 points to rank eighth in the league in scoring.
  • A nod is as good as a wink to a blind horse. Clearly, Booger didn't know what they were doing when they picked up and started Brian Quick. He scored a team-worst 12.0% of his projected point total for 1.00 point.
  • At the DEF position, Booger got outscored by Psycho Anna 14.00 - 1.00.
  • The San Diego Chargers Defense was last on the team in scoring with 1.00 point against a projected 7.68 and underachieved for the first time this season.

What If

  • If Psycho Anna had played every team in the league each week, they would be 20-22.
  • Booger would have been beaten by every other team in the league this week.

  • Booger would be 1-4 if they played the same schedule as Psycho Anna.
  • If they played every team every week, Booger would be 16-26.

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.
