Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • The good news is, at least we know you're trying. The bad news is, you don't seem to be any good at trying.
  • Every one of their nine starters scored less than their projected points.
  • Well, that's embarrassing. Left Colin Kaepernick on the bench, where he ranked seventh in the league in scoring with 26.50 points.
  • Picked up Donte Moncrief but left him on the bench, where he scored 18.20 points and exceeded his scoring projection by 160.4%, the fifth-highest percentage in the league.
  • Picked up the Baltimore Ravens Defense, which was last in the matchup in points scored with -1.00.

  • If Shane's Team had played every team in the league each week, they would be 12-6.
  • Joom's Team would have been beaten by every other team in the league this week.
  • Timing really is everything. Shane's Team would have lost to Joom's Team 127.12 - 81.44 had they played each other last week.
  • Joom's Team would be 9-9 if they played every team every week.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 2

Barry Sanders Det - RB 1998 vs. Cincinnati 233 total yards, 3 TDs Terrell Davis Den - RB 1998 vs. Dallas 191 rushing yards, 3 TDs Week 2 of ’98 was special, as it featured two of the greatest running backs of all-time in vintage form.

And in a way, it was a swan song for both players. Sanders would score just one more time over the remaining 14 weeks of the ’98 season, opting to take early retirement at the end of the campaign.

As for Davis, his ’98 season continued on in epic fashion, as he would finish with 2,008 rushing yards and 23 touchdowns. But an ACL injury early in the ’99 season proved to be a death knell for Davis’ short, but sweet, career, as he played just 17 games combined from ’99 to ’01 (scoring 4 touchdowns in that span) before deciding to hang up his cleats.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
