Andy's Team put up the second-highest score of the week to defeat Hail Mary 95.60 to 75.16. Andy's Team came into the matchup as the underdog, with a projected spread of 14.25. These two teams are tied for seventh place with 2-3 records, but it doesn't tell the whole story, as Hail Mary has a clear points lead, 457.08 to 370.62.

The result might have been even worse, Andy's Team had a starter score zero points (Mike Evans).

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 6

Jerry Rice SF - WR 1990 vs. Atlanta 13 catches, 225 yards, 5 TDs Jerry Rice is often called GOAT (which stands for Greatest Of All Time).

You can (unconvincingly) argue the validity of that moniker, but you can’t dispute the fact that in Week 6 of ’90 against the Falcons, Rice recorded the greatest fantasy tally by a wide receiver since at least the AFL/NFL merger in 1970. In fact, in that span, only Clinton Portis (’03) and Shaun Alexander (’02) posted better single-game fantasy lines in the Yahoo default scoring format.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
