  • 49
  • Zimmers
  • 2-3
  • Weekly Grade: D
  • 40

Zimmers had scoring issues this week and lost to 108 Years 49 to 40. Each team failed to meet expectations, but 108 Years managed to score 80.3% of a projected 60.99 points for the win. Free fallin' like Tom Petty, Zimmers suffered a significant drop in scoring from last week's 63 to 59 win against Skol BLT Skol.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Some people are born losers, others develop it over time. Fortunately, there's a cure: Winning
  • Left Allen Robinson on the bench, where he scored 15 points and beat his projected point total by 195.3%, the fourth-highest percentage in the league this week.
  • Zimmers lost despite having only 1 of their 7 starters score less than their projected points.
  • 3 of the 7 starters scored zero points for Zimmers.
  • The 3 points scored by Jamaal Charles was a season-low for both scoring and for his performance against projections. He reached only 24.7% of his 12.15 projected points this week.

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.
