MVP (5-5, 774 points) took advantage of the third-highest score in the league this week from Charcandrick West to beat Steel Curtain (3-7, 730 points) 85 to 60. A good beginning makes a good ending, and MVP took that to heart when they went into Sunday in front 27 to 19.

Smooth Moves by MVP

  • Not quite the best, but pretty darn effective. Charcandrick West had the second-highest RB score of the week and the seventh-highest RB score in the league this season with 27 points.
  • You see what happens when you keep the laces out? Josh Brown scored 16 points, the highest K score in the league this week.
  • LeSean McCoy scored 15 points, which ranked fifth out of all the RBs in the league this week.
  • Starter Willie Snead put up a zero, but MVP still won.
  • Even with only 3 of the 9 starters scoring more than their projection, MVP was still able to win.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Remember that time you thought, "I don't need help from your stinking articles. I can beat MVP on my own." How'd it work out for you?
  • Left Michael Floyd on the bench, where he scored the seventh-most points in the league and beat his projected point total by 296.6%, the third-highest percentage in the league.
  • 7 of the starters on Steel Curtain underperformed versus their projections.
  • This is how people lose everything in casinos. Steel Curtain thought their luck would change and went back to the well with Jason Witten. However, he scored 4 points against a projected 6.03 and has now underachieved in three straight games.
  • MVP saw their RBs beat those on Steel Curtain 42 - 10.

What If

  • If MVP played Steel Curtain every week, they'd be 5-5 this year.
  • Besides Steel Curtain, MVP would have defeated six other teams this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Steel Curtain, MVP would be 3-6.
  • If MVP had played every team in the league each week, they would be 40-69-1.
  • Besides MVP, Steel Curtain would have been defeated by seven other teams this week.
  • And they say procrastination doesn't pay off! Had they played each other last week, MVP would have lost to Steel Curtain 94 - 87.
  • Steel Curtain would be 3-6 if they played the same schedule as MVP.
  • Steel Curtain would be 29-81 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 Steel Curtain has had, five were against opponents who topped their season scoring average that week.
  • Three of the starters for MVP scored higher than the leading scorer for Steel Curtain.
  • The 85 points by MVP was their lowest winning score of the season.
  • MVP beat their scoring projection for the fourth time this season by scoring 85 points against a projected 78.40. They have now overachieved three weeks in a row.
  • Speed, strength, agility, vision, and intelligence. It was all on display this week when the RBs on MVP collectively had their best week of the season with 42 points.
  • Although MVP won, it was no thanks to the Arizona Cardinals Defense, which scored 6 points and has now scored below their projection in four straight weeks.
  • MVP has now won four straight games.
  • With 60 points, Steel Curtain ranked ninth in the league in scoring this week.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 10

Chad Johnson CIN - WR 2006 vs. San Diego 11 catches, 260 receiving yards, 2 TDs Before he changed his name to the incorrect Spanish translation of his jersey number (85), Chad Johnson was a perennial Pro Bowler, named to the Pro Bowl squad five consecutive seasons from โ€™03 to โ€™07.

The pinnacle of this impressive run was a two-week stretch in the middle of the โ€™06 season, starting with a 260-yard, 2 TD dismantling of the Chargers secondary in Week 10. The next week, Johnson would nearly equal his 38-point fantasy output by serving up a 190-yard, 3 TD beat down on the Saints. The two weeks stand as the all-time greatest fantasy performance by a wide receiver in back-to-back contests.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
