    Smooth Moves by The Purple Helmets

    • Sat Markus Wheaton, who scored fewer points than any WR in the starting lineup with 4.10.
    • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just Brandon Marshall posterizing opponents. He had the sixth-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 19.20 points.
    • The 19.00 points scored by Kelvin Benjamin was the eighth-highest score by a WR in the league this week.
    • There are rumors that the military wants to model a new all-terrain vehicle based off of Eddie Lacy. He had the third-highest score among RBs in the league this week with 17.80 points.
    • This is the bar, and this is the team jumping over it. The Purple Helmets had 6 of their 9 starters exceed their projected points.

    Toyota Roster Tune-up

    • Gang Green may have missed the opportunity for a win, but they gained an opportunity to be mercilessly taunted by The Purple Helmets. 
    • The 7.50 points scored by Vincent Jackson fell short of his 10.95-point projection, the fourth straight game where that has happened.
    • With 2.40 points against a projected 4.09, Wes Welker did not meet his projection for the third straight game.
    • Gang Green was not able to win even though only 3 of their 9 starters fell short of their projected point total.
    • Left Montee Ball in the starting lineup, where he didn't score any points.

    • The Purple Helmets would be 8-2 if they played Gang Green every week.

    Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 10

    Chad Johnson CIN - WR 2006 vs. San Diego 11 catches, 260 receiving yards, 2 TDs In a storied, and controversial, career that spanned 10 years, 766 catches and two surnames, Johnson (or Ochocinco, if you prefer) was never finer than in Week 10 of '06 when he posted 260 receiving yards (A Bengals record) and two touchdowns against San Diego in 49-41 loss.

    It currently stands as the third-highest receiving yardage total for a player in a losing effort. The following week, Johnson nearly matched his prolific Week 10 fantasy effort, going for 190 yards and three touchdowns. His two-week yardage tally of 450 yards broke John Taylor's record (448 yards) for back-to-back games. And you can bet he gave the opposing defensive backs an earful as he was in the process of making history.
    Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
