Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Now that Dr. Professor got that embarrassing loss out of the way, let's work on our Toyota Hall of Fame potential.
  • Note to self: don't start a player when they're going to have their worst game of the season. Martellus Bennett had a season-low 1 point against a projected 5.32 and underachieved for the second time this season.
  • Of the 9 starters on Dr. Professor, 5 underperformed versus their projections.
  • Robbie Gould failed to score this week with 0 points against a projected 7.07.
  • With 7 points versus a projected 11.59, Calvin Johnson scored only 60.4% of his projected point total.

  • If NinjaBoot played Dr. Professor every week, they'd be 3-0 this season.
  • NinjaBoot would've been undefeated if they played every team in the league this week.
  • Had they played each other last week, NinjaBoot would have defeated Dr. Professor 86 - 78.

  • NinjaBoot would be 22-11 if they played every team every week.
  • Dr. Professor would have lost to four other teams besides NinjaBoot this week.
  • Dr. Professor would be 1-1 if they played the same schedule as NinjaBoot.
  • If they played every team every week, Dr. Professor would be 11-21-1.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 3

Ronnie Brown Mia - RB 2007 vs. New York Jets 112 rushing yards, 99 receiving yards, 3 TDs What can Ronnie Brown do for you? Well, if it’s Week 3, the answer is likely to be, “an awful lot.” Not only did Brown flex his run/catch skills against the Jets in Week 3 of ’07, totaling 211 yards from scrimmage and three scores, but he also flashed in Week 3 of 2008, rushing for 113 yards and scoring four times against New England.

And while he did little as a receiver in that contest (9 yards), he did contribute to the passing game by tossing a 19-yard TD pass. In Brown’s first five NFL seasons, he topped 100 total yards in each of his five Week 3 contests.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
