Smooth Moves by Jimmy's Nifty Team

  • What do Apache helicopters, F-117 Nighthawks and Amari Cooper have in common? They are all dangerous aerial weapons. He ranked fourth in the league in scoring among WRs this week with 19.30 points.
  • With 7.30 points, Travis Kelce ranked third in the league this week in scoring among TEs.
  • Jimmy's Nifty Team won despite having 2 of their 9 starters score zero points.
  • Apparently playing within themselves was good enough. Jimmy's Nifty Team won despite having only 3 of their 9 starters exceed their projected points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • You gave it the old college try. Unfortunately for you, this isn't college ball. This is professional football at the national level; you know the acronym.
  • Left Ryan Tannehill on the bench, where he led the matchup in scoring with 27.58 points.
  • Acquired and started LeGarrette Blount, who scored -0.30 points, the fewest of any player in the matchup.
  • With 5.00 points against a projected 6.65, Stevie Johnson did not meet his projection for the third straight game.
  • The 12.80 points scored by Drew Brees was a season-low. He had a projected 18.08-point total, and has now underachieved in three straight games.

What If

  • If Jimmy's Nifty Team played Stephen's Team every week, they'd be 2-5 this year.
  • Jimmy's Nifty Team would have beaten three other teams besides Stephen's Team this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Stephen's Team, Jimmy's Nifty Team would be 2-4.
  • If Jimmy's Nifty Team had played every team in the league each week, they would be 26-37.
  • Besides Jimmy's Nifty Team, Stephen's Team would have been defeated by five other teams this week.
  • And they say procrastination doesn't pay off! Had they played each other last week, Jimmy's Nifty Team would have lost to Stephen's Team 100.38 - 86.64.
  • Stephen's Team would be 5-1 if they played the same schedule as Jimmy's Nifty Team.
  • Stephen's Team would be 35-28 if they played every team every week.

Game Notes

  • The tragedy of being an underachiever is that Stephen's Team knows what they should be, but reality keeps telling them that they're wrong. They scored 64.60 points against a projected 77.49 and underachieved for the fifth time this season, including the last four weeks in a row.
  • Jimmy's Nifty Team has won six straight games, the longest current winning streak in the league.
  • All of the points for Jimmy's Nifty Team this week came from players they drafted.
  • The Toyota Hall of Fame recommends Stephen's Team go on a WINNING streak, instead of a LOSING streak. That one word makes a surprising amount of difference.
  • Jimmy's Nifty Team outdid their projection in the win, while Stephen's Team came in under their point expectation. Jimmy's Nifty Team is now 4-0 when overachieving, while Stephen's Team falls to 1-4 when failing to reach their projection.
  • Ryan Mathews was a bright spot for Stephen's Team in the loss with 18.10 points, the ninth-highest RB score in the league this week.
  • If I had a performance like that, I'd probably go see the local hypnotist. Despite being on the winning team, Russell Wilson scored a season-low 13.40 points, just 68.9% of a projected 19.45, his lowest percentage of the season.
  • Stephen's Team failed to reach their season average of 85.15 points.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 7

Darren McFadden Oak - RB 2010 vs. Denver 196 total yards, 4 TDs For a brief moment in time, many, many hamstring pulls ago, Run-DMC was considered an elite fantasy running back, thanks to efforts like that in Week 7 of โ€™10 versus Denver.

His huge effort against the Broncos was part of a season in which McFadden would finish second to only Arian Foster in fantasy points per game among running backs. But his three missed games that season would foreshadow the future, as he quickly became a health risk punchline in fantasy circles by missing an average of over six games per season from โ€™11 to โ€™13.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
