Smooth Moves by Revis and Butthead

  • Best in the world: Antonio Gates can claim that at least for one week after his 21.20 point performance. It was highest score for any TE this week, as well as the fifth-highest TE score in the league this season.
  • Just call him Fred Flintstone, because he was toting the rock all day long. Doug Martin had 33.80 points, the highest RB score of the week and the second-highest RB score in the league this season.
  • With 24.34 points, Carson Palmer ranked 10th in the league in scoring.
  • 5 of 9 players in the starting lineup for Revis and Butthead topped their projected points.
  • Carlos Hyde exceeded scoring projections by 48.4%, with 15.70 points against a projected 10.58.

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.
  • Showtime left the 17.60 points scored by Allen Hurns on the bench this week. He beat his projected point total by 180.3%, the seventh-highest percentage in the league.
  • A nod is as good as a wink to a blind horse. Clearly, Showtime didn't know what they were doing when they traded for and started Vincent Jackson. He scored a team-worst 41.7% of his projected point total for 3.40 points.
  • Showtime lost despite having only 2 of their 9 starters score less than their projected points.
  • It was a bad week at RB for Showtime, who was outscored at the position 49.50 - 18.00 by Revis and Butthead.

What If

  • If Revis and Butthead played Showtime every week, they would be 2-3 this season.
  • Revis and Butthead would have beaten nine other teams besides Showtime this week.
  • Revis and Butthead would be 1-3 if they played the same schedule as Showtime.
  • If Revis and Butthead had played every team in the league each week, they would be 27-28.
  • In addition to Revis and Butthead, Showtime would have lost to just one other team this week.
  • And they say procrastination doesn't pay off! Had they played each other last week, Revis and Butthead would have lost to Showtime 93.44 - 78.30.
  • Showtime would be 4-0 if they played the same schedule as Revis and Butthead.
  • If they played every team every week, Showtime would be 43-12.

Game Notes

  • Maybe the league is colluding against them. All three of the losses for Showtime this season have come when their opponent scores higher than their season average.
  • Although Showtime lost, they did put up the second-highest score for a losing team in the league this season.
  • Revis and Butthead won by 14.60 points, covering the 12.94-point spread.
  • The 133.54 points scored by Revis and Butthead is their highest score of the season and the fifth-highest in the league this season.

  • Showtime got a combined 33.40 points from their WRs, the highest combined scoring output from the WR position for any team this week.
  • Revis and Butthead won even though Showtime performed better against their scoring projection. Showtime beat their 87.00 projected points by 36.7%, while Revis and Butthead outscored their 99.94-point projection by 33.6%.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 5

Steve Largent Sea - WR 1987 vs. Detroit 15 catches, 261 yards, 3 TDs Hall of Fame receiver Steve Largent is no scrub, and he proved that emphatically in Week 5 of the strike-plagued ’87 season.

Largent crossed the picket line a week before the strike ended, affording him an opportunity to face a Detroit defense full of replacement players. Largent took full advantage of the sub-par competition, rolling up a dreamy PPR line of 15 catches, 261 yards and a TD hat trick. It was the last time in Largent’s storied NFL career that he would reach 100 yards or score multiple touchdowns in a game.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
