    Smooth Moves by Destruction Inc.

    • Not the best, but in the conversation. Peyton Manning ranked third in the league in scoring this week with 31.60 points. It was also the third-highest score of any player on Destruction Inc. this season.
    • With 17.00 points, Denard Robinson, who Destruction Inc. picked up this week, beat his 9.79-point projection by 73.6%.
    • The 13.10 points scored by DeMarco Murray was the seventh-highest score of any RB in the league this week.
    • Apparently playing within themselves was good enough. Destruction Inc. won despite having only 3 of their 9 starters exceed their projected points.
    • Destruction Inc. won even though both of their WRs scored below their projected points.

    Toyota Roster Tune-up

    • After that performance, we have to wonder if Zach's Team cares about becoming a Hall Of Famer at all. That's right, you're being judged by an online recap. 
    • Left Ben Roethlisberger on the bench, where he led the team in scoring with 15.72 points.
    • The 7.70 points scored by LeSean McCoy fell short of his 14.95-point projection, the third straight game where that has happened.
    • Zach's Team tried to fight through 3 of their 9 starters getting zeros, but could not overcome it.
    • It's times like these when it's important to support your players when they're down. So move the mouse pointer away from the DROP button. Justin Tucker scored a season-low 3.00 points, 32.0% of his projected 9.38, which is his lowest percentage of the year.

    What If

    • If Destruction Inc. played Zach's Team every week, they would be 10-0 this season.
    • Besides Zach's Team, Destruction Inc. would have defeated five other teams this week.
    • Were they resting their players for this week? Destruction Inc. would have defeated Zach's Team 86.02 - 68.64 had they played each other last week.
    • Destruction Inc. would be 7-1 if they played the same schedule as Zach's Team.
    • Destruction Inc. would be 80-10 if they played every team every week.
    • Zach's Team would have lost to six other teams besides Destruction Inc. this week.
    • Zach's Team would be 4-4 if they played the same schedule as Destruction Inc.
    • If they played every team every week, Zach's Team would be 31-59.

    Game Notes

    • Zach's Team underachieved for the seventh time this season, including the last three weeks in a row, scoring 53.10 points against a projected 67.35 this week.
    • The 35.60-point win by Destruction Inc. failed to cover the 37.99-point spread.
    • We don't condone cheating, but this group of wide receivers might want to spray Stickum on their gloves. The 4.40 total points by the WRs on Destruction Inc. was their lowest WR output this season.
    • Destruction Inc. beat Zach's Team at the top, with two of their starters outscoring the leading point-getter for Zach's Team.
    • Although Destruction Inc. won, it was no thanks to Steve Smith Sr, who scored 1.70 points and has now scored below his projection in four straight weeks.
    • Just because Robert Horry has seven NBA championship rings, doesn't mean he's one of the greats. Despite being on the winning team, Zach Ertz scored 1.70 points against a projected 6.24 and has now underachieved in three straight games.
    • With the win, Destruction Inc. remains undefeated in blowout games this season with a record of 7-0.
    • With the big loss, Zach's Team falls to 2-4 in blowout games this season.

    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.
