    Smooth Moves by Fourth Down Syndrome

    • Not the best, but in the conversation. Aaron Rodgers ranked sixth in the league in scoring this week with 39.96 points. It was also the third-highest score of any player on Fourth Down Syndrome this season.
    • What do Apache helicopters, F-117 Nighthawks and Jordy Nelson have in common? They are all dangerous aerial weapons. He ranked fourth in the league in scoring among WRs this week with 23.20 points.
    • With 19.10 points, Torrey Smith ranked seventh in the league in scoring among WRs this week.
    • Justin Forsett put the team on his back with 13.10 points, the ninth-highest score among RBs in the league this week.

    Toyota Missed Opportunities

    • Not reading the expert articles from the Hall Of Fame. And if they did, maybe they should pay better attention when they read.
    • The Cincinnati Bengals Defense scored the fewest points in the league with -2.00 against a projected 8.41 and underachieved for the third time this season.
    • Da Bears would have welcomed more points at WR, where Fourth Down Syndrome topped them 47.60 - 16.70.
    • Our kicker can beat up your kicker. Da Bears got outscored 14.00 - 2.00 by Fourth Down Syndrome at the K position.
    • Gotta hit rock button before you can start to rise. It was a season-low 2.60 points for Victor Cruz this week. It was also a season-low for his performance versus projections, reaching only 23.7% of a projected point total of 10.95.

    What If

    • Fourth Down Syndrome would be 3-3 if they played Da Bears every week.
    • Besides Da Bears, Fourth Down Syndrome would have defeated eight other teams this week.
    • Had they played each other last week, Fourth Down Syndrome would have defeated Da Bears 136.14 - 126.50.
    • If they played the same schedule as Da Bears, Fourth Down Syndrome would be 3-2.
    • Fourth Down Syndrome would be 39-27 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.
