    Smooth Moves by BleedsBroncoBlue

    • Acquired Mohamed Sanu, who exceeded his scoring projection by 107.8%, the eighth-highest percentage in the league.
    • What do Apache helicopters, F-117 Nighthawks and Jordy Nelson have in common? They are all dangerous aerial weapons. He ranked fourth in the league in scoring among WRs this week with 28.38 points.
    • The 19.00 points scored by the New England Patriots Defense outpaced their 15.17-point scoring projection by 25.2%.
    • Apparently playing within themselves was good enough. BleedsBroncoBlue won despite having only 4 of their 9 starters exceed their projected points.
    • BleedsBroncoBlue got the win, overcoming both of their RBs underperforming versus their projections.

    Toyota Missed Opportunities

    • Not reading the expert articles from the Hall Of Fame. And if they did, maybe they should pay better attention when they read.
    • The Buffalo Bills Defense was last in the matchup in scoring, finishing below their projection for the second time this season with -2.00 points against a projected 11.69.
    • Team BWhit lost despite having only 4 of their 9 starters score less than their projected points.
    • With 8.38 points versus a projected 14.82, Reggie Wayne scored only 56.5% of his projected point total.
    • The RBs on Team BWhit both beat their projections, but it was still a loss.

    • If BleedsBroncoBlue had played every team in the league each week, they would be 35-19.
    • Team BWhit would have lost to just two other teams besides BleedsBroncoBlue this week.
    • And they say procrastination doesn't pay off! Had they played each other last week, BleedsBroncoBlue would have lost to Team BWhit 170.77 - 142.16.
    • Team BWhit would be 2-3 if they played the same schedule as BleedsBroncoBlue.
    • Team BWhit would be 28-26 if they played every team every week.

    Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 6

    Trung Canidate STL - RB 2001 vs. New York Jets 23 carries, 195 rushing yards, 3 receptions, 37 receiving yards, 2 TDs Canidate's NFL candle burned briefly, but in Week 6 of '01, it also burned with the intensity of a 4,000-lumen halogen bulb.

    Against the Jets, Canidate rung up 232 yards from scrimmage, a sum that equated to more than 17 percent of Canidate's career yardage total (1,355) covering a 46-game span. Canidate would go on to top 100 rushing yards two more times in his career, but nothing would come close to matching the Big Apple beat down that he served the Jets.
    Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
