Steel Curtain played out of their minds, registering the highest score of their season to get past RomosRing 95 to 90. RomosRing has had some misfortune and is on a three-game losing streak. RomosRing was coming off an 89 to 69 loss against A-$1 and saw their scoring increase this week. Following a zero-point effort from John Brown, RomosRing was left to wonder "what might have been?".

Smooth Moves by Steel Curtain

  • With 26 points against a projected 19.63, Philip Rivers ranked eighth in the league in scoring and has now overachieved in five straight games.
  • What do Apache helicopters, F-117 Nighthawks and Alshon Jeffery have in common? They are all dangerous aerial weapons. He ranked sixth in the league in scoring among WRs this week with 17 points.
  • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just Michael Floyd posterizing opponents. He had the ninth-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 16 points.
  • The 12 points by Eric Decker topped a projected 8.65, extending his overachievement streak to six weeks.
  • Those were the projections? We thought that was the starting point. 5 of the 9 starters on Steel Curtain exceeded their projected points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Losing is a proven way not to win a game. For a more successful season, try not losing.
  • Left Benjamin Watson on the bench, where he exceeded his scoring projection by a league-leading 259.1%.
  • RomosRing left the 16 points scored by C.J. Anderson on the bench this week. He beat his projected point total by 196.8%, the fifth-highest percentage in the league.
  • This is how people lose everything in casinos. RomosRing thought their luck would change and went back to the well with Justin Forsett. However, he scored 6 points against a projected 16.71 and has now underachieved in three straight games.
  • RomosRing could have used more points at WR, where Steel Curtain outscored them 45 - 12.

  • If Steel Curtain played RomosRing every week, they'd be 3-5 this season.
  • Steel Curtain would have beaten seven other teams besides RomosRing this week.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 8

Ben Roethlisberger Pit - QB 2014 vs. Indianapolis 522 passing yards, 6 TD passes Through the first seven weeks of ’14, Big Ben ranked outside the top 20 in fantasy scoring among signal callers.

His slow start likely led many of his owners to look for other QB options for Week 8, when Roethlisberger finally emerged from hibernation to drop 522 passing yards and 6 TD passes on the Colts. You can be sure his owners didn’t make the same mistake the following week when the suddenly red-hot Roethlisberger threw for another half dozen touchdowns to go with 340 passing yards against Baltimore, becoming the first QB in NFL history to throw at least six touchdowns in back-to-back weeks.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
