Smooth Moves by A-$1

  • Not quite the best, but pretty darn good. LeGarrette Blount had the third-highest RB score of the week and the fourth-highest RB score in the league this season with 26 points.
  • The 34 points scored by A.J. Green ranked second in the league in scoring. It is the highest output of any player on A-$1 this season.
  • The 22 points scored by Tom Brady was the fifth-highest score of any QB in the league this week.
  • What do Apache helicopters, F-117 Nighthawks and Kendall Wright have in common? They are all dangerous aerial weapons. He ranked 10th in the league in scoring among WRs this week with 16 points.
  • The 10 points scored by Rob Gronkowski was the third-highest point total among TEs in the league this week.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Remember that time you thought, "I don't need help from your stinking articles. I can beat A-$1 on my own." How'd it work out for you?
  • The Houston Texans Defense scored 6 points against a projected 10.21 and has now underachieved in every game this season.
  • Termiraiders tried to fight through 2 of their 9 starters getting zeros, but could not overcome it.
  • A-$1 saw their RBs beat those on Termiraiders 32 - 9.
  • Note to self: don't start a player when they're going to have their worst game of the season. Russell Wilson had a season-low 14 points against a projected 20.51 and underachieved for the second time this season.

What If

  • A-$1 would be 2-1 if they played Termiraiders every week.
  • A-$1 would have beaten nine other teams besides Termiraiders this week.
  • Were they resting their players for this week? A-$1 would have defeated Termiraiders 69 - 61 had they played each other last week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Termiraiders, A-$1 would be 1-1.
  • A-$1 would be 18-15 if they played every team every week.
  • Besides A-$1, Termiraiders would have been defeated by five other teams this week.
  • Termiraiders would be 1-1 if they played the same schedule as A-$1.
  • If they played every team every week, Termiraiders would be 11-21-1.

  • The 126 points scored by A-$1 is their highest score of the season and the second-highest in the league 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.
