MVP smashed Dr. Professor 101 to 56, sniffing the record books in the process with the highest point total they've scored this season. Is this fantasy football or mixed martial arts? Because this 45-point margin of victory was nothing short of a beatdown and was the sixth-highest recorded in the league this season. Dr. Professor, coming off a 105 to 99 loss against Captain Hammer, saw their scoring drop off this week. MVP (3-5, 600 points) climbs into eighth place and Dr. Professor (4-4, 684 points) stays in sixth place.

Smooth Moves by MVP

  • MVP saw their fourth-largest single-week point total by a player this season with Joe Flacco scoring 21 points. The score was also high enough to rank ninth in the league.
  • Made the right move in benching Donte Moncrief, who had 1 point, the lowest total of any starting WR on MVP.
  • Charcandrick West put the team on his back with 17 points, the third-highest score among RBs in the league this week.
  • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just Willie Snead posterizing opponents. He had the sixth-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 17 points.
  • This is the bar, and this is the team jumping over it. MVP had 5 of their 9 starters exceed their projected points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Dry your tears, study more articles and forget that your 101 to 56 loss ever happened.
  • They say a little knowledge is a dangerous thing. Acquired and started the Detroit Lions Defense, which scored -1 point, the fewest of any player in the matchup.
  • 7 of the starters on Dr. Professor underperformed versus their projections.
  • This is how people lose everything in casinos. Dr. Professor thought their luck would change and went back to the well with Martellus Bennett. However, he scored 3 points against a projected 6.85 and has now underachieved in three straight games.
  • The WR corps couldn't keep pace with their counterparts from MVP and were outscored 32 - 10.

What If

  • MVP would be 2-6 if they played Dr. Professor every week.
  • Besides Dr. Professor, MVP would have defeated eight other teams this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Dr. Professor, MVP would be 3-4.
  • If MVP had played every team in the league each week, they would be 28-59-1.
  • Dr. Professor would have been beaten by every other team in the league this week.
  • Timing really is everything. MVP would have lost to Dr. Professor 99 - 85 had they played each other last week.
  • Dr. Professor would be 3-4 if they played the same schedule as MVP.
  • If they played every team every week, Dr. Professor would be 41-45-2.

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.
