Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Now that Usual Suspects got that embarrassing loss out of the way, let's work on our Toyota Hall of Fame potential.
  • Peyton Manning had -7.30 points against a projected 13.93 to finish last in the league in scoring and has now underachieved in six straight games.
  • Should have started Teddy Bridgewater, who underachieved, but still outscored the starting QB with 9.95 against a projected 10.48.
  • A heated blanket would be a great gift for Jeremy Hill during this cold streak. He scored below his projection in three straight games after scoring 1.00 point against a projected 7.49 this week.
  • Jimmy Graham has now failed to reach his projection for three straight games. This week he scored 2.05 points versus a projected 5.03.

  • If Leathernecks played Usual Suspects every week, they would be 6-4 this season.
  • Leathernecks would've been undefeated if they played every team in the league this week.
  • Were they resting their players for this week? Leathernecks would have defeated Usual Suspects 57.64 - 51.30 had they played each other last week.
  • Leathernecks would be 4-4 if they played the same schedule as Usual Suspects.
  • If Leathernecks had played every team in the league each week, they would be 43-47.
  • Besides Leathernecks, Usual Suspects would have been defeated by five other teams this week.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 10

Chad Johnson CIN - WR 2006 vs. San Diego 11 catches, 260 receiving yards, 2 TDs Before he changed his name to the incorrect Spanish translation of his jersey number (85), Chad Johnson was a perennial Pro Bowler, named to the Pro Bowl squad five consecutive seasons from โ€™03 to โ€™07.

The pinnacle of this impressive run was a two-week stretch in the middle of the โ€™06 season, starting with a 260-yard, 2 TD dismantling of the Chargers secondary in Week 10. The next week, Johnson would nearly equal his 38-point fantasy output by serving up a 190-yard, 3 TD beat down on the Saints. The two weeks stand as the all-time greatest fantasy performance by a wide receiver in back-to-back contests.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
