Smooth Moves by THE TEXAN

  • A bounty from the backfield: DeMarco Murray had an outstanding performance with 31.30 points, the best among RBs this week and the eighth-highest RB score in the league this season.
  • With 71.50 points, Matt Ryan exceeded his scoring projection by a season-high 20.2% to rank second in the league in scoring.
  • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just T.Y. Hilton posterizing opponents. He had the 10th-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 19.40 points.
  • With 16.00 points, Golden Tate had his highest output of the season.
  • THE TEXAN won even with Vincent Jackson in the starting lineup, who didn't score any points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • If only we provided some kind of tool, like weekly articles, that would help The Indians secure a victory. Oh, WAIT, we do.
  • Missed out on an opportunity by leaving the 24.00 points scored by the Miami Dolphins Defense on the bench this week. They outperformed their projected point total by 247.3%, the third-highest percentage in the league.
  • This is how people lose everything in casinos. The Indians thought their luck would change and went back to the well with Randall Cobb. However, he scored 5.80 points against a projected 20.34 and has now underachieved in three straight games.
  • With 1.00 point, the Arizona Cardinals Defense was last on the team in scoring and got only 10.5% of their 9.49 projected points, their lowest percentage of the season.
  • The 7.60 points scored by A.J. Green was a season-low. He had a projected 20.66-point total, and has now underachieved in three straight games.

What If

  • If THE TEXAN played The Indians every week, they would be 4-2 this season.
  • Besides The Indians, THE TEXAN would have beaten only one other team this week.
  • Were they resting their players for this week? THE TEXAN would have defeated The Indians 182.80 - 137.80 had they played each other last week.
  • If they played the same schedule as The Indians, THE TEXAN would be 1-3.
  • THE TEXAN would be 10-20 if they played every team every week.
  • Besides THE TEXAN, The Indians would have been defeated by three other teams this week.
  • The Indians would be 1-3 if they played the same schedule as THE TEXAN.
  • The Indians would be 12-18 if they played every team every week.

Game Notes

  • Three of the four losses for The Indians this season have come when their opponent scores higher than their season average.

  • THE TEXAN has won three straight games, the longest current winning streak in the league.
  • The tragedy of being an underachiever is that The Indians knows what they should be, but reality keeps telling them that they're wrong. They scored 162.90 points against a projected 178.12 and underachieved for the fourth time this season, including the last three weeks in a row.
  • The Indians got their lowest combined scoring output from the RB position this season with only 29.60 points this week.
  • The margin of victory for the matchup ended up being the smallest in the league this week at 7.90 points.

  • The Indians remains winless in comeback games this season, falling to 0-2.

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.
