    Smooth Moves by Cajun Kirs

    • Andrew Luck ranked seventh in the league in scoring with 30.60 points against a projected 24.12 and has now overachieved in every game this season.
    • Do you put a LB or DB on him? You might have to put both on him if this continues. Greg Olsen scored 12.20 points to rank third among TEs in the league this week.
    • With 14.00 points, Justin Tucker had his highest score of the season and beat his projected point total by a season-high 63.0%.
    • Did you use any black magic this week? Cajun Kirs was still able to pull out a win with only 4 of their 9 starters exceeding their projected points.
    • Wow, I guess RBs really don't matter much. Cajun Kirs won even though both of their RBs scored below their projected points.

    Toyota Missed Opportunities

    • The Spartans probably blew their shot at becoming a Toyota Hall Of Famer with that loss, but there's a bright side. Let us know when you find it.
    • Percy Harvin was last on the team in scoring with -0.10 points against a projected 8.66 and has now underachieved in four straight games.
    • Cajun Kirs had their fewest points of the season, but The Spartans could not pull out the win.
    • The RBs for The Spartans got outscored 16.50 - 5.30 by the RBs for Cajun Kirs.
    • Gotta hit rock button before you can start to rise. It was a season-low 4.40 points for Golden Tate this week. It was also a season-low for his performance versus projections, reaching only 42.6% of a projected point total of 10.32.

    What If

    • Cajun Kirs would be 5-1 if they played The Spartans every week.
    • Besides The Spartans, Cajun Kirs would have beaten only two other teams this week.
    • Were they resting their players for this week? Cajun Kirs would have defeated The Spartans 113.18 - 100.34 had they played each other last week.
    • If they played the same schedule as The Spartans, Cajun Kirs would be 5-0.
    • Cajun Kirs would be 42-12 if they played every team every week.
    • Besides Cajun Kirs, The Spartans would have been defeated by seven other teams this week.
    • The Spartans would be 3-2 if they played the same schedule as Cajun Kirs.
    • If they played every team every week, The Spartans would be 15-39.

    Game Notes

    • The margin of victory for the matchup ended up being the smallest in the league this week at 3.90 points.
    • What good are running backs if they are running backwards instead of forwards? The 5.30 total points by the RBs on The Spartans was their smallest RB output this season.
    • Just because Robert Horry has seven NBA championship rings, doesn't mean he's one of the greats. Despite being on the winning team, Greg Jennings scored 3.30 points against a projected 6.14 and has now underachieved in five straight games.
    • Cajun Kirs won even though The Spartans performed better against their scoring projection. The Spartans scored 92.9% of their 89.59 projected points, while Cajun Kirs recorded 83.8% of their 103.98-point projection.

    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.
