Smooth Moves by MVP

  • By the beard of Zeus, that's a lot of points for a defense. With 28 points, the Arizona Cardinals Defense had the highest point total to date for all defenses.
  • Jimmy Graham scored 14 points, the second-highest TE score of the week and the eighth-highest TE score in the league this season.
  • Le'Veon Bell put the team on his back with 19 points, the eighth-highest score among RBs in the league this week.
  • Apparently playing within themselves was good enough. MVP won despite having only 4 of their 9 starters exceed their projected points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • The "nothing" part of Hall or Nothing seems to be confusing people this year. You want the Hall. Go for the Hall.
  • All that glitters is not gold. Picked up David Johnson, who scored 3 points against his projected 8.66.
  • 7 of the 9 starters scored less than their projected points.
  • Who needs offense when the defense is so dominant!? Smif&Mackpa$$rushOP got outscored 28 - 12 by MVP at the DEF position.
  • In the midst of a season-low in scoring, Ben Roethlisberger also did not meet his projected points (3 points scored versus 16.71 projected) for the second time this season.

What If

  • MVP would be 1-2 if they played Smif&Mackpa$$rushOP every week.
  • Besides Smif&Mackpa$$rushOP, MVP would have beaten only three other teams this week.
  • MVP would be 0-2 if they played the same schedule as Smif&Mackpa$$rushOP.
  • If MVP had played every team in the league each week, they would be 10-22-1.
  • Besides MVP, Smif&Mackpa$$rushOP would have been defeated by nine other teams this week.
  • And they say procrastination doesn't pay off! Had they played each other last week, MVP would have lost to Smif&Mackpa$$rushOP 95 - 73.
  • Smif&Mackpa$$rushOP would be 2-0 if they played the same schedule as MVP.
  • If they played every team every week, Smif&Mackpa$$rushOP would be 21-12.

Game Notes

  • Brandon Marshall scored 14 points against a projected 10.25 in the loss and has now beaten his projection in every game this season.

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.
