Smooth Moves by Tarkenton

  • Even with both of their RBs falling short of their projected scores, Tarkenton still won.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • The "nothing" part of Hall or Nothing seems to be confusing people this year. You want the Hall. Go for the Hall.
  • This is one of those mistakes that you continuously think about for ten years. Did not start Ryan Tannehill, who scored 44.78 points to rank ninth in the league in scoring.
  • All that glitters is not gold. Picked up David Johnson, who scored 7.10 points against his projected 15.17.
  • The WR corps couldn't keep pace with their counterparts from Tarkenton and were outscored 61.30 - 13.40.
  • 2 of the 9 starters scored zero points for BLUECHIPS.

What If

  • If Tarkenton played BLUECHIPS every week, they'd be 1-2 this year.
  • The schedule worked out for Tarkenton, as they would've lost to every other team in the league besides BLUECHIPS this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as BLUECHIPS, Tarkenton would be 1-1.
  • If Tarkenton had played every team in the league each week, they would be 4-23.
  • BLUECHIPS would have lost to every other team in the league this week.
  • And they say procrastination doesn't pay off! Had they played each other last week, Tarkenton would have lost to BLUECHIPS 135.30 - 126.27.
  • If they played the same schedule as Tarkenton, BLUECHIPS would be 0-2.
  • BLUECHIPS would be 8-19 if they played every team every week.

Game Notes

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 3

Ronnie Brown Mia - RB 2007 vs. New York Jets 112 rushing yards, 99 receiving yards, 3 TDs What can Ronnie Brown do for you? Well, if it’s Week 3, the answer is likely to be, “an awful lot.” Not only did Brown flex his run/catch skills against the Jets in Week 3 of ’07, totaling 211 yards from scrimmage and three scores, but he also flashed in Week 3 of 2008, rushing for 113 yards and scoring four times against New England.

And while he did little as a receiver in that contest (9 yards), he did contribute to the passing game by tossing a 19-yard TD pass. In Brown’s first five NFL seasons, he topped 100 total yards in each of his five Week 3 contests.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
