  • Lightning Bolts has now scored below their projected points for the last three weeks.
  • Don't you hate that guy that always has to one-up everybody? Lightning Bolts scored 49 points and lost. It is the fifth-highest losing score in the league this season.
  • Team name pending was able to win with little help from Matt Bryant, who had a season-low 3 points and is on a five-week underperforming streak.

  • Just because Robert Horry has seven NBA championship rings, doesn't mean he's one of the greats. Despite being on the winning team, Demaryius Thomas scored 5 points against a projected 7.58 and has now underachieved in three straight games.
  • In the loss, Rob Gronkowski scored 8 points, the seventh-highest TE score in the league this season.
  • Lightning Bolts ranked eighth in the league in scoring this week.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 6

Jerry Rice SF - WR 1990 vs. Atlanta 13 catches, 225 yards, 5 TDs Jerry Rice is often called GOAT (which stands for Greatest Of All Time).

You can (unconvincingly) argue the validity of that moniker, but you can’t dispute the fact that in Week 6 of ’90 against the Falcons, Rice recorded the greatest fantasy tally by a wide receiver since at least the AFL/NFL merger in 1970. In fact, in that span, only Clinton Portis (’03) and Shaun Alexander (’02) posted better single-game fantasy lines in the Yahoo default scoring format.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
