Smooth Moves by Poor Ricky

  • Sat TE Jason Witten on the bench, where he had the lowest TE score on the team with 4.18 points.
  • With 40.26 points against a projected 29.80, Cam Newton led the team in scoring and has now overachieved in three straight games.
  • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just Martavis Bryant posterizing opponents. He had the second-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 31.12 points.
  • Do you put a LB or DB on him? You might have to put both on him if this continues. Richard Rodgers scored 10.78 points to rank third among TEs in the league this week.
  • This is the bar, and this is the team jumping over it. Poor Ricky had 5 of their 9 starters exceed their projected points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Some people are born losers, others develop it over time. Fortunately, there's a cure: Winning
  • Failed to start Ben Roethlisberger, who led the league in scoring with 60.50 points and beat his projected point total by a league-leading 40,233.3%.
  • Left the Kansas City Chiefs Defense on the bench, where they scored 28.00 points and beat their projected point total by 134.1%, the seventh-highest percentage in the league this week.
  • This is how people lose everything in casinos. Gumby thought their luck would change and went back to the well with the Green Bay Packers Defense. However, they scored 8.67 points against a projected 20.25 and has now underachieved in four straight games.
  • A heated blanket would be a great gift for Justin Forsett during this cold streak. He scored below his projection in three straight games after scoring 11.56 points against a projected 20.93 this week.

What If

  • If Poor Ricky played Gumby every week, they would be 7-3 this season.
  • Besides Gumby, Poor Ricky would have defeated four other teams this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Gumby, Poor Ricky would be 2-6.
  • If Poor Ricky had played every team in the league each week, they would be 35-55.
  • Gumby would have been beaten by every other team in the league this week.
  • And they say procrastination doesn't pay off! Had they played each other last week, Poor Ricky would have lost to Gumby 137.19 - 116.69.
  • If they played the same schedule as Poor Ricky, Gumby would be 4-4.
  • If they played every team every week, Gumby would be 31-59.

Game Notes

  • Maybe the league is colluding against them. All seven of the losses for Gumby this season have come when their opponent scores higher than their season average.
  • In the loss, Derek Carr ranked 10th in the league in scoring with 44.02 points against a projected 33.26 and has now overachieved in four straight games.
  • Gumby was last in the league in scoring for the second time this season.
  • This was the fourth time this season that Gumby lost by the week's biggest margin.
  • When the going gets tough, the tough are supposed to get going. However, Gumby stalled out again and extended their losing streak to six games.
  • Poor Ricky won by the largest margin of victory in the league (33.86 points) for the first time this season.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 10

Chad Johnson CIN - WR 2006 vs. San Diego 11 catches, 260 receiving yards, 2 TDs Before he changed his name to the incorrect Spanish translation of his jersey number (85), Chad Johnson was a perennial Pro Bowler, named to the Pro Bowl squad five consecutive seasons from ’03 to ’07.

The pinnacle of this impressive run was a two-week stretch in the middle of the ’06 season, starting with a 260-yard, 2 TD dismantling of the Chargers secondary in Week 10. The next week, Johnson would nearly equal his 38-point fantasy output by serving up a 190-yard, 3 TD beat down on the Saints. The two weeks stand as the all-time greatest fantasy performance by a wide receiver in back-to-back contests.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
