Smooth Moves by Ariel's Unreal Team

  • Tom Brady brought in 25.30 points, which was good enough to rank fifth in the league in scoring this week and third-best of any player on Ariel's Unreal Team this season.
  • Wisely sat Tyrod Taylor this week, who had 22.36 points, the lowest QB score on the team.
  • Sat Jeremy Hill, who scored 2.50 points, fewer than any RB in the starting lineup.
  • Le'Veon Bell scored 18.70 points, which ranked fifth out of all the RBs in the league this week.
  • There are rumors that the military wants to model a new all-terrain vehicle based off of Todd Gurley. He had the eighth-highest score among RBs in the league this week with 15.90 points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • You gave it the old college try. Unfortunately for you, this isn't college ball. This is professional football at the national level; you know the acronym.
  • Whoever gave you this advice, you might want to lose their number. Picked up and started Boobie Dixon, who then scored below his 9.09-point projection with 3.90 points.
  • The 0.60 points scored by Ameer Abdullah was the lowest total in the matchup and 5.4% of his projected point total of 11.03, which was his lowest percentage of the season.
  • This is how people lose everything in casinos. Autoshafted thought their luck would change and went back to the well with Antonio Brown. However, he scored 4.50 points against a projected 11.47 and has now underachieved in three straight games.
  • You wish you had a kicker like ours. Ariel's Unreal Team won the K position battle, beating Autoshafted 13.00 - 2.00.

What If

  • If Ariel's Unreal Team played Autoshafted every week, they would be 3-2 this 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.
