    Smooth Moves by The Dominator

    • Successfully gambled on Alshon Jeffery, who scored 8.88 points against a projected 0.
    • What do Apache helicopters, F-117 Nighthawks and Randall Cobb have in common? They are all dangerous aerial weapons. He ranked fifth in the league in scoring among WRs this week with 24.48 points.
    • DeMarco Murray put the team on his back with 22.45 points, the fourth-highest score among RBs in the league this week.
    • Those were the projections? We thought that was the starting point. 5 of the 9 starters on The Dominator exceeded their projected points.
    • The Dominator won even with Marques Colston in the starting lineup, who didn't score any points.

    Toyota Missed Opportunities

    • Remember that thing Team BWhit did instead of reading the expert articles from the Hall Of Fame? Shouldn't have done that. 
    • Left Brandon Marshall on the bench, where he led the team in scoring with 29.00 points, beating his scoring projection by 61.6%, which also led the team.
    • Acquired and started the Miami Dolphins Defense, which scored -2.00 points, the fewest of any player in the matchup.
    • 7 of the 9 starters scored less than their projected points.
    • The WR corps couldn't keep pace with their counterparts from The Dominator and were outscored 33.36 - 14.25.

    • The Dominator would be 1-1 if they played Team BWhit every week.
    • The Dominator would not have beaten any other team in the league besides Team BWhit this week.
    • The Dominator would be 1-17 if they played every team every week.
    • Team BWhit would have lost to every other team in the league this week.
    • Timing really is everything. The Dominator would have lost to Team BWhit 136.32 - 108.82 had they played each other last week.

    Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 2

    Chris Johnson Ten - RB 2009 vs. Houston 16 carries, 197 rushing yards, 9 receptions, 87 receiving yards, 3 TDs In the opening week of the '09 campaign, Titans RB Chris Johnson did little to tip his hand that he was about to threaten the NFL's all-time single-season rushing record, debuting that season with a meager 57 rushing yards (0 TD) against Pittsburgh.

    But in Week 2, he let the cat out of the bag with an explosive 284 total yard effort against the Texans that included a TD hat trick. In a season in which he garnered the nickname CJ2K for the 2,006 rushing yards that he finished the season with, Week 2 was his finest individual fantasy effort.
    Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
