Smooth Moves by Glitz & Blitz

  • Not quite the best, but pretty darn effective. Justin Forsett had the second-highest RB score of the week and the seventh-highest RB score in the league this season with 23.00 points.
  • Put Latavius Murray on the bench, where he had the lowest RB score on the team with 5.70 points.
  • What do Apache helicopters, F-117 Nighthawks and Anquan Boldin have in common? They are all dangerous aerial weapons. He ranked fifth in the league in scoring among WRs this week with 16.70 points.
  • The 14.00 points were a season-high for the New England Patriots Defense. The score beat their 7.45-point projection by 87.8%, which also was a season-high.
  • Even with a zero from starter Owen Daniels, Glitz & Blitz was still able to win.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Some people are born losers, others develop it over time. Fortunately, there's a cure: Winning
  • This is how people lose everything in casinos. Aaron's Fine Team thought their luck would change and went back to the well with Calvin Johnson. However, he scored 6.70 points against a projected 12.79 and has now underachieved in three straight games.
  • Jason Witten had his lowest score of the season with 1.30 points against a projected 8.22 and has now underachieved in every game this season.
  • Jordan Matthews did not meet his 8.78 projected points and has now underperformed versus projections for three straight weeks. He also scored a season-low 4.40 points.
  • Aaron's Fine Team was not able to win even though only 4 of their 8 starters fell short of their projected point total.

What If

  • Glitz & Blitz would be 3-1 if they played Aaron's Fine Team every week.
  • Glitz & Blitz would have beaten seven other teams besides Aaron's Fine Team this week.
  • Had they played each other last week, Glitz & Blitz would have defeated Aaron's Fine Team 67.86 - 57.00.
  • Glitz & Blitz would be 2-1 if they played the same schedule as Aaron's Fine Team.
  • Glitz & Blitz would be 18-18 if they played every team every week.
  • Besides Glitz & Blitz, Aaron's Fine Team would have been defeated by six other teams this week.
  • Aaron's Fine Team would be 1-2 if they played the same schedule as Glitz & Blitz.
  • Aaron's Fine Team would be 9-27 if they played every team every week.

Game Notes

  • This is the third game in a row where Aaron's Fine Team has failed to reach their projected points.
  • The 34.90-point margin of victory was the largest in the league this week and fifth-biggest in the league this season.
  • With the big win, both of the wins this season for Glitz & Blitz have been blowouts.
  • Glitz & Blitz had their highest score of the season with 93.80 points.
  • They may need to check dentals records to identify this victim. Aaron's Fine Team had their worst loss of the season, losing by 34.90 points.
  • Aaron's Fine Team ranked eighth in the league in scoring this week.
  • Aaron's Fine Team could not pull out the win, but Le'Veon Bell did perform well with the third-best RB score in the league this week, scoring 18.70 points.
  • Maybe pop in the tape of the best game of the season to feel better. A.J. Green had a season-low 7.80 points in the win against a projected 9.78 and scored below his projection for the third time this season.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 5

Steve Largent Sea - WR 1987 vs. Detroit 15 catches, 261 yards, 3 TDs Hall of Fame receiver Steve Largent is no scrub, and he proved that emphatically in Week 5 of the strike-plagued ’87 season.

Largent crossed the picket line a week before the strike ended, affording him an opportunity to face a Detroit defense full of replacement players. Largent took full advantage of the sub-par competition, rolling up a dreamy PPR line of 15 catches, 261 yards and a TD hat trick. It was the last time in Largent’s storied NFL career that he would reach 100 yards or score multiple touchdowns in a game.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
