Smooth Moves by Trophy Wife

  • Tyler Eifert had 29.00 points, the second-highest TE score of the week and the fifth-highest TE score in the league this season.
  • Trophy Wife appears to be some sort of fantasy prophet in the making. The Atlanta Falcons Defense, which was picked up by Trophy Wife, scored 12.50 points against a projected 7.23, topping their projection by 72.9%.
  • There are rumors that the military wants to model a new all-terrain vehicle based off of DeMarco Murray. He had the fourth-highest score among RBs in the league this week with 25.00 points.
  • Did you use any black magic this week? Trophy Wife was still able to pull out a win with only 4 of their 9 starters exceeding their projected points.
  • Both of the starting RBs beat their projected point totals.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Remember that time you thought, "I don't need help from your stinking articles. I can beat Trophy Wife on my own." How'd it work out for you?
  • The 11.70 points scored by Calvin Johnson fell short of his 19.08-point projection, the third straight game where that has happened.
  • With 6.00 points, Steven Hauschka was last on the team in scoring and got only 71.3% of his 8.42 projected points, his lowest percentage of the season.
  • It was not a good week for Phillip Ajarapoo at TE, where they were beaten 29.00 - 7.60.
  • Matt Ryan had two season-lows this week. He scored a season-low 11.46 points and recorded only 43.9% of his 26.09-point projection.

What If

  • If Trophy Wife played Phillip Ajarapoo every week, they'd be 3-2 this year.
  • Trophy Wife would have beaten three other teams besides Phillip Ajarapoo this week.
  • Had they played each other last week, Trophy Wife would have defeated Phillip Ajarapoo 125.74 - 82.54.
  • If they played the same schedule as Phillip Ajarapoo, Trophy Wife would be 3-1.
  • If Trophy Wife had played every team in the league each week, they would be 18-27.
  • Phillip Ajarapoo would have lost to six other teams besides Trophy Wife this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Trophy Wife, Phillip Ajarapoo would be 0-4.
  • If they played every team every week, Phillip Ajarapoo would be 19-26.

Game Notes

  • Speed, strength, agility, vision, and intelligence. It was all on display this week when the RBs on Trophy Wife collectively had their best week of the season with 37.60 points.
  • Trophy Wife had two starters score more points than the highest-scoring starter for Phillip Ajarapoo.
  • Trophy Wife outdid their projection in the win, while Phillip Ajarapoo came in under their point expectation. Trophy Wife is now 1-1 when overachieving, while Phillip Ajarapoo falls to 0-2 when failing to reach their projection.
  • Phillip Ajarapoo scored 111.96 points, ranking them eighth in the league in scoring.
  • Phillip Ajarapoo could not close out the win even with the help of Emmanuel Sanders, who scored 20.10 points, the eighth-highest score among all WRs in the league for the week.
  • In the loss, T.J. Yeldon had the 10th-highest RB score in the league this week with 17.30 points.
  • Tell Demaryius Thomas to go to a nice restaurant, maybe grab a milk shake, or even take a bubble bath. Because he should forget about this performance. Demaryius Thomas was on the winning team, but scored a season-low 10.50 points, only 54.2% of his 19.37-point projection, his lowest percentage of the season.
  • If I had a performance like that, I'd probably go see the local hypnotist. Despite being on the winning team, Amari Cooper scored a season-low 8.90 points, just 62.9% of a projected 14.14, his lowest percentage of the season.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 5

Steve Largent Sea - WR 1987 vs. Detroit 15 catches, 261 yards, 3 TDs Hall of Fame receiver Steve Largent is no scrub, and he proved that emphatically in Week 5 of the strike-plagued ’87 season.

Largent crossed the picket line a week before the strike ended, affording him an opportunity to face a Detroit defense full of replacement players. Largent took full advantage of the sub-par competition, rolling up a dreamy PPR line of 15 catches, 261 yards and a TD hat trick. It was the last time in Largent’s storied NFL career that he would reach 100 yards or score multiple touchdowns in a game.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
