  • Weekly Grade: D
  • 55

MVP took advantage of 18 points from Charcandrick West and 13 from Joe Flacco to easily dispatch Termiraiders 85 to 55. It takes a true veteran to maintain focus throughout a season. MVP is whatever the opposite of that is, having dropped their last six. Termiraiders, coming off a 95 to 83 loss against Captain Hammer, saw their scoring drop off this week. On top of the loss, Termiraiders had two starters score zero points (Demaryius Thomas and Julius Thomas). MVP (2-5, 499 points) climbs into ninth place and Termiraiders (1-6, 476 points) sinks into last place.

Smooth Moves by MVP

  • MVP was still able to pull out a win with only 2 of their 9 starters exceeding their projected points.
  • Charcandrick West put the team on his back with 18 points, the seventh-highest score among RBs in the league this week.
  • MVP won even though both of their WRs scored below their projected points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Fantasy Football is a mental sport. Using your brain is a great way to ensure success.
  • Did not start Teddy Bridgewater, who led the matchup in scoring with 19 points.
  • Ameer Abdullah has now failed to reach his projection for six straight games. This week he scored 5 points versus a projected 6.74.
  • Termiraiders was faced with 2 starters coming up empty in points.
  • You've gotta hit rock button before you can start to rise. It was a season-low 10 points for Russell Wilson this week. It was also a season-low for his performance versus projections, reaching only 55.2% of a projected point total of 18.13.

What If

  • If MVP played Termiraiders every week, they'd be 4-2-1 this season.
  • MVP would have beaten only three other teams besides Termiraiders this week.
  • MVP would be 0-6 if they played the same schedule as Termiraiders.
  • If MVP had played every team in the league each week, they would be 19-57-1.
  • Termiraiders would have lost to nine other teams besides MVP this week.
  • Timing really is everything. MVP would have lost to Termiraiders 83 - 62 had they played each other last week.
  • Termiraiders would be 1-5 if they played the same schedule as MVP.
  • Termiraiders would be 17-59-1 if they played every team every week.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 7

Darren McFadden Oak - RB 2010 vs. Denver 196 total yards, 4 TDs For a brief moment in time, many, many hamstring pulls ago, Run-DMC was considered an elite fantasy running back, thanks to efforts like that in Week 7 of โ€™10 versus Denver.

His huge effort against the Broncos was part of a season in which McFadden would finish second to only Arian Foster in fantasy points per game among running backs. But his three missed games that season would foreshadow the future, as he quickly became a health risk punchline in fantasy circles by missing an average of over six games per season from โ€™11 to โ€™13.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
