Who-Dey crew got 23.90 points from Matthew Stafford and 23.50 from Mark Ingram to slip by Comish 111.40 to 106.51. These two teams are tied for 10th place with 3-5 records, but it doesn't tell the whole story, as Comish has a clear points lead, 839.54 to 682.69.

Smooth Moves by Who-Dey crew

  • The 23.50 points scored by Mark Ingram was the fourth-highest score of any RB in the league this week.
  • Eddie Lacy put the team on his back with 18.20 points, the seventh-highest score among RBs in the league this week.
  • There are rumors that the military wants to model a new all-terrain vehicle based off of Chris Ivory. He had the eighth-highest score among RBs in the league this week with 16.30 points.
  • Matthew Stafford led the team in scoring with 23.90 points, the fourth-highest score of any player on Who-Dey crew this season.
  • Those were the projections? We thought that was the starting point. 6 of the 9 starters on Who-Dey crew exceeded their projected points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Yes, your team could have been better. But if you haven't gotten behind the wheel of the bold new Camry yet, that's your real missed opportunity.
  • Did not start Ben Roethlisberger, who led the league in scoring with 56.78 points.
  • A heated blanket would be a great gift for Marshawn Lynch during this cold streak. He scored below his projection in three straight games after scoring 6.40 points against a projected 15.03 this week.
  • With 1.40 points, Julian Edelman had his lowest output of the season and tallied just 13.5% of his 10.39 projected points, his lowest percentage of the year.
  • Of the 9 starters on Comish, 6 underperformed versus their projections.

What If

  • Who-Dey crew would be 2-6 if they played Comish every week.
  • Who-Dey crew would have beaten five other teams besides Comish this week.
  • Who-Dey crew would be 1-6 if they played the same schedule as Comish.
  • Who-Dey crew would be 27-61 if they played every team every week.
  • Comish would have lost to six other teams besides Who-Dey crew this week.
  • And they say procrastination doesn't pay off! Had they played each other last week, Who-Dey crew would have lost to Comish 101.02 - 90.36.
  • Comish would be 5-2 if they played the same schedule as Who-Dey crew.
  • Comish would be 53-35 if they played every team every week.

Game Notes

  • Maybe the league is colluding against them. All five of the losses for Comish this season have come when their opponent scores higher than their season average.
  • Comish underachieved for the fifth time this season, including the last four weeks in a row, scoring 106.51 points against a projected 108.30 this week.
  • Although Comish lost, they did put up the fifth-highest score for a losing team in the league this season.
  • This must be how Jay Leno feels with a garage full of high performance cars. Who-Dey crew got a combined 58.00 points from their RBs, their highest combined scoring output from the RB position this season.
  • Comish got a combined 38.60 points from their WRs, their highest combined scoring output from the WR position this season.
  • The 4.89-point margin of victory was the smallest in the league this week.
  • Who-Dey crew snapped their three-game losing streak with the win.
  • Emmanuel Sanders scored 30.60 points, the third-highest WR score in the league this season, but it was not enough to get the win for Comish.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 8

Calvin Johnson Det - WR 2013 vs. Dallas 14 receptions, 329 yards, TD Until Megatron traveled the equivalent of 3.3 football fields against a woeful Cowboys secondary in Week 8 of '13, it had been more than two decades since a player topped 300 receiving yards in the NFL.

The last player to accomplish the feat (Flipper Anderson, 336 yards on Nov. 26, 1989) still holds the all-time mark for receiving yards in a game, a mere seven yards more than Johnson. Kansas City's Stephon Paige was the first, and only other WR, to top this mark when he went for 309 yards against San Diego in '85. As for Johnson's epic tally, it barely edged out Cincinnati's Marvin Jones for the top WR effort of the week, as Jones posted 122 receiving yards and four touchdowns against the Jets, finishing less than a single fantasy point behind the Lion king.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
