    Da Bears (3-3, 590.90 points) beat Go Blue (3-3, 522.28 points) 89.84 to 83.64, led by DeMarco Murray with 20.60 points and Matt Ryan who scored 14.74. Da Bears came into the Sunday games already in front 22.90 to 6.10. They let that melt away like a popsicle on the Fourth of July, and they trailed 59.40 to 47.20 after the early Sunday games. However, following the late Sunday games, Da Bears regained the lead for good. Then, they spent the rest of the matchup making fun of Go Blue to the other league members.

    Smooth Moves by Da Bears

    • Sat Darrin Reaves, who scored 1.90 points, fewer than any RB in the starting lineup.
    • 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 20.60 points.
    • Andre Johnson scored 13.90 points, the 10th-highest WR score in the league this week.
    • Lamar Miller scored 13.30 points, which ranked ninth out of all the RBs in the league this week.
    • Da Bears saw the majority of their starters (5 of 9) beat their projected point total.

    Toyota Missed Opportunities

    • After that performance, we have to wonder if Go Blue cares about becoming a Hall Of Famer at all. That's right, you're being judged by an online recap. 
    • Go Blue left the 16.20 points scored by Jordan Cameron on the bench this week. He beat his projected point total by 125.3%, the ninth-highest percentage in the league.
    • Should have started Nick Novak, who underachieved, but still had more points than the starting K with 7.00 against a projected 8.38.
    • Should have started Ben Roethlisberger, who underachieved, but still had more points than the starting QB with 13.82 against a projected 19.46.
    • With 1.20 points, DeAndre Hopkins was last on the team in scoring and got only 15.6% of his 7.68 projected points, his lowest percentage of the season.

    What If

    • Da Bears would be 4-2 if they played Go Blue every week.
    • Besides Go Blue, Da Bears would have defeated three other teams this week.
    • Da Bears would be 4-1 if they played the same schedule as Go Blue.
    • If Da Bears had played every team in the league each week, they would be 29-25.
    • Go Blue would have lost to six other teams besides Da Bears this week.
    • And they say procrastination doesn't pay off! Had they played each other last week, Da Bears would have lost to Go Blue 118.04 - 71.84.
    • If they played the same schedule as Da Bears, Go Blue would be 2-3.
    • Go Blue would be 20-34 if they played every team every week.

    Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 6

    Trung Canidate STL - RB 2001 vs. New York Jets 23 carries, 195 rushing yards, 3 receptions, 37 receiving yards, 2 TDs Canidate's NFL candle burned briefly, but in Week 6 of '01, it also burned with the intensity of a 4,000-lumen halogen bulb.

    Against the Jets, Canidate rung up 232 yards from scrimmage, a sum that equated to more than 17 percent of Canidate's career yardage total (1,355) covering a 46-game span. Canidate would go on to top 100 rushing yards two more times in his career, but nothing would come close to matching the Big Apple beat down that he served the Jets.
    Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
