Smooth Moves by Sokna's Primo Team

  • Drew Brees set the league season high for total points in a week with 47.54.
  • The 17.00 points scored by Adam Vinatieri was the second-highest K score of the week and is the third-highest K score in the league this season.
  • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just Julian Edelman posterizing opponents. He had the fifth-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 20.10 points.
  • Do you put a LB or DB on him? You might have to put both on him if this continues. Greg Olsen scored 13.90 points to rank second among TEs in the league this week.
  • There are rumors that the military wants to model a new all-terrain vehicle based off of Eddie Lacy. He had the ninth-highest score among RBs in the league this week with 10.70 points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Dry your tears, study more articles and forget that your 112.24 to 67.78 loss ever happened.
  • Left Marques Colston on the bench, where he exceeded his scoring projection by a league-leading 220.0%.
  • This is one of those mistakes that you continuously think about for ten years. Did not start Philip Rivers, who scored 24.04 points to rank sixth in the league in scoring.
  • This is how people lose everything in casinos. JP the Wolf's Team thought their luck would change and went back to the well with Justin Forsett. However, he scored 7.40 points against a projected 17.51 and has now underachieved in three straight games.
  • The 3.70 points scored by Randall Cobb fell short of his 11.02-point projection, the fourth straight game where that has happened.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 8

Ben Roethlisberger Pit - QB 2014 vs. Indianapolis 522 passing yards, 6 TD passes Through the first seven weeks of ’14, Big Ben ranked outside the top 20 in fantasy scoring among signal callers.

His slow start likely led many of his owners to look for other QB options for Week 8, when Roethlisberger finally emerged from hibernation to drop 522 passing yards and 6 TD passes on the Colts. You can be sure his owners didn’t make the same mistake the following week when the suddenly red-hot Roethlisberger threw for another half dozen touchdowns to go with 340 passing yards against Baltimore, becoming the first QB in NFL history to throw at least six touchdowns in back-to-back weeks.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
