    Smooth Moves by Burressted Dvlopment

    • There are rumors that the military wants to model a new all-terrain vehicle based off of Jamaal Charles. He had the fourth-highest score among RBs in the league this week with 28.80 points.
    • The 24.13 points scored by Keenan Allen was the 10th-highest score by a WR in the league this week.
    • Andre Ellington put the team on his back with 15.85 points, the 10th-highest score among RBs in the league this week.
    • Jay Cutler led the team in scoring with 29.95 points, the fourth-highest score of any player on Burressted Dvlopment this season.
    • Those were the projections? We thought that was the starting point. 5 of the 9 starters on Burressted Dvlopment exceeded their projected points.

    Toyota Roster Tune-up

    • Cam may have missed the opportunity for a win, but they gained an opportunity to be mercilessly taunted by Burressted Dvlopment. 
    • Well, that's embarrassing. Left Tom Brady on the bench, where he ranked second in the league in scoring with 47.70 points.
    • 7 of the starters on Cam underperformed versus their projections.
    • You wish you had a kicker like ours. Burressted Dvlopment won the K position battle, beating Cam 15.00 - 5.00.
    • Note to self: don't start a player when they're going to have their worst game of the season. Dan Bailey had a season-low 5.00 points against a projected 9.19 and underachieved for the second time this season.

    Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 8

    Calvin Johnson Det - WR 2013 vs. Dallas 14 receptions, 329 yards, TD Until Megatron traveled the equivalent of 3.3 football fields against a woeful Cowboys secondary in Week 8 of '13, it had been more than two decades since a player topped 300 receiving yards in the NFL.

    The last player to accomplish the feat (Flipper Anderson, 336 yards on Nov. 26, 1989) still holds the all-time mark for receiving yards in a game, a mere seven yards more than Johnson. Kansas City's Stephon Paige was the first, and only other WR, to top this mark when he went for 309 yards against San Diego in '85. As for Johnson's epic tally, it barely edged out Cincinnati's Marvin Jones for the top WR effort of the week, as Jones posted 122 receiving yards and four touchdowns against the Jets, finishing less than a single fantasy point behind the Lion king.
    Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
