Smooth Moves by DBud's CHASE

  • Antonio Gates scored 17.40 points, the second-highest TE score of the week and the 10th-highest TE score in the league this season.
  • The 25.16 points scored by Carson Palmer, who DBud's CHASE picked up this week, beat his projected point total of 18.99 by 32.5%.
  • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just Randall Cobb posterizing opponents. He had the 10th-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 18.60 points.
  • Apparently playing within themselves was good enough. DBud's CHASE won despite having only 3 of their 9 starters exceed their projected points.
  • DBud's CHASE won even though all three of their RBs scored below their projected points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Remember that thing OFAS did instead of reading the expert articles from the Hall Of Fame? Shouldn't have done that. 
  • Acquired and benched Brandon LaFell, who scored 18.40 points and beat his projected point total by 146.0%, which was the highest percentage of any player on the team.
  • It was not a good week for OFAS at TE, where they were beaten 17.40 - 1.60.
  • With 1.60 points, Greg Olsen had his lowest output of the season and tallied just 21.9% of his 7.30 projected points, his lowest percentage of the year.
  • Hate to point fingers for why a team loses, but RIGHT HERE. Dan Bailey had a season-low 5.00 points against a projected 8.56 and scored below his projection for the third time this season.

What If

  • DBud's CHASE would be 3-5 if they played OFAS every week.
  • Besides OFAS, DBud's CHASE would have defeated four other teams this week.
  • DBud's CHASE would be 2-5 if they played the same schedule as OFAS.
  • DBud's CHASE would be 38-50 if they played every team every week.
  • OFAS would have lost to every other team in the league this week.
  • Timing really is everything. DBud's CHASE would have lost to OFAS 93.89 - 86.91 had they played each other last week.
  • OFAS would be 4-3 if they played the same schedule as DBud's CHASE.
  • OFAS would be 42-46 if they played every team every week.

Game Notes

  • Looks like teams bring their A game when they see them on the schedule. Of the losses OFAS has had, five were against opponents who topped their season scoring average that week.
  • OFAS had the league's lowest score of the week for the second time this season.
  • DBud's CHASE covered the 14.32-point spread, winning by 18.92 points.
  • This must be how Jay Leno feels with a garage full of high performance cars. DBud's CHASE got a combined 29.80 points from their RBs, their highest combined scoring output from the RB position this season.
  • DBud's CHASE underachieved in the win, improving to 2-3 when failing to reach their projected points this season, while OFAS falls to 2-5 when scoring below their projected points.
  • DBud's CHASE won while scoring the fewest total points of any winning team in the league this week.
  • Le'Veon Bell was a bright spot for OFAS in the loss with 14.80 points, the ninth-highest RB score in the league this week.
  • DBud's CHASE won without much help from the Detroit Lions Defense, which had season-lows in both points scored and in scoring only 35.2% of their projected point total.

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.
