    Smooth Moves by George's Genius Team

    • Tony Romo beat his scoring projection by a season-high 41.1% to rank 10th in the league in scoring.

    • The 9.30 points scored by Jason Witten was the fourth-highest point total among TEs in the league this week.
    • Starter Terrance Williams put up a zero, but George's Genius Team still won.

    Toyota Roster Tune-up

    • My Team may have missed the opportunity for a win, but they gained an opportunity to be mercilessly taunted by George's Genius Team. 
    • Missed an opportunity by leaving Justin Forsett on the bench. He scored 23.20 points, the eighth-highest score in the league this week.
    • Curiosity killed the cat. It also killed My Team this week. They acquired and started Travis Kelce, who then finished last on the team in scoring with 1.90 points.
    • Whoever gave you this advice, you might want to lose their number. Picked up and started Derek Carr, who then scored below his 17.32-point projection with 13.68 points.
    • With 2.00 points against a projected 6.27, the Cincinnati Bengals Defense did not meet their projection for the sixth straight game.

    What If

    • George's Genius Team would be 1-9 if they played My Team every week.
    • Besides My Team, George's Genius Team would have defeated four other teams this week.
    • If they played the same schedule as My Team, George's Genius Team would be 5-3.
    • George's Genius Team would be 51-39 if they played every team every week.
    • My Team would have lost to four other teams besides George's Genius Team this week.
    • Timing really is everything. George's Genius Team would have lost to My Team 105.66 - 84.02 had they played each other last week.
    • If they played the same schedule as George's Genius Team, My Team would be 6-2.
    • My Team would be 75-15 if they played every team every week.

    Game Notes

    • Maybe the league is colluding against them. All three of the losses for My Team this season have come when their opponent scores higher than their season average.
    • Don't you hate that guy that always has to one-up everybody? My Team scored 93.58 points and lost. It is the eighth-highest losing score in the league this season.
    • George's Genius Team scored 96.34 points against a projected 96.39 and underachieved for the fifth time this season, including the last three weeks in a row.
    • The 53.00 points by the WRs on My Team was the season-high for combined points from the position.
    • The loss snapped a six-game win streak by My Team.
    • At 2.76 points, the margin of victory was the tightest of the week.
    • Although George's Genius Team won, it was no thanks to Doug Baldwin, who scored 3.10 points and has now scored below his projection in three straight weeks.
    • My Team falls to 0-2 in close games this season, remaining winless.

    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.
