Smooth Moves by TheKULLtimateWarrior

  • Julio Jones had 40.40 points, the third-highest WR score of the week and the third-highest WR score in the league this season.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Remember that time you thought, "I don't need help from your stinking articles. I can beat TheKULLtimateWarrior on my own." How'd it work out for you?
  • Note to self: don't start a player when they're going to have their worst game of the season. Carlos Hyde had a season-low 7.10 points against a projected 13.71 and underachieved for the second time this season.
  • Hate to point fingers for why a team loses, but RIGHT HERE. LeSean McCoy had a season-low 9.60 points against a projected 14.30 and scored below his projection for the second time this season.
  • Only 4 of the 9 starters on #1 on the Way underachieved this week, but they still lost.
  • #1 on the Way got a zero from Tyler Eifert after expecting a projected 12.09-point total.

What If

  • If TheKULLtimateWarrior played #1 on the Way every week, they would be 2-1 this season.
  • Besides #1 on the Way, TheKULLtimateWarrior would have defeated five other teams this week.
  • Were they resting their players for this week? TheKULLtimateWarrior would have defeated #1 on the Way 140.96 - 137.84 had they played each other last week.
  • If they played the same schedule as #1 on the Way, TheKULLtimateWarrior would be 1-1.
  • If TheKULLtimateWarrior had played every team in the league each week, they would be 16-11.
  • Besides TheKULLtimateWarrior, #1 on the Way would have been defeated by three other teams this week.
  • #1 on the Way would be 2-0 if they played the same schedule as TheKULLtimateWarrior.
  • #1 on the Way would be 20-7 if they played every team every week.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 3

Ronnie Brown Mia - RB 2007 vs. New York Jets 112 rushing yards, 99 receiving yards, 3 TDs What can Ronnie Brown do for you? Well, if it’s Week 3, the answer is likely to be, “an awful lot.” Not only did Brown flex his run/catch skills against the Jets in Week 3 of ’07, totaling 211 yards from scrimmage and three scores, but he also flashed in Week 3 of 2008, rushing for 113 yards and scoring four times against New England.

And while he did little as a receiver in that contest (9 yards), he did contribute to the passing game by tossing a 19-yard TD pass. In Brown’s first five NFL seasons, he topped 100 total yards in each of his five Week 3 contests.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
