Smooth Moves by OutofLuck

  • Andrew Luck had 30.48 points, the third-highest QB score of the week and the ninth-highest QB score in the league this season.
  • If this was college, Martavis Bryant would expect to get a sleeve of helmet stickers. He ranked fifth in the league in scoring this week with 31.50 points. It was also the second-highest score of any player on OutofLuck this season.
  • Took Eli Manning out of the starting lineup, who scored 11.66 points on the bench, fewer than the starting QB.
  • With 11.00 points scored versus a projected 8.34, Stephen Gostkowski scored more points than projected for four straight games.
  • By scoring 15.90 points, Donte Moncrief beat his 10.77 projected points by 47.6%.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Dry your tears, study more articles and forget that your 127.98 to 114.80 loss ever happened.
  • All that glitters is not gold. Picked up Charcandrick West, who scored 2.40 points against his projected 10.80.
  • Eddie Lacy has now failed to reach his projection for five straight games. This week he scored 3.00 points versus a projected 14.96.
  • The 12.30 points scored by Julio Jones fell short of his 15.67-point projection, the third straight game where that has happened.
  • You wish you had a kicker like ours. OutofLuck won the K position battle, beating Fantasy Suicide 11.00 - 3.00.

What If

  • If OutofLuck played Fantasy Suicide every week, they'd be 2-4 this season.
  • Besides Fantasy Suicide, OutofLuck would have beaten only one other team this week.
  • Were they resting their players for this week? OutofLuck would have defeated Fantasy Suicide 138.24 - 117.16 had they played each other last week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Fantasy Suicide, OutofLuck would be 1-4.
  • OutofLuck would be 19-35 if they played every team every week.
  • Besides OutofLuck, Fantasy Suicide would have been defeated by seven other teams this week.
  • Fantasy Suicide would be 4-1 if they played the same schedule as OutofLuck.
  • Fantasy Suicide would be 34-20 if they played every team every week.

Game Notes

  • Maybe the league is colluding against them. All three of the losses for Fantasy Suicide this season have come when their opponent scores higher than their season average.
  • Fantasy Suicide has underachieved for three straight weeks, having scored 114.80 points against a projected 128.01 this week.
  • Fantasy Suicide got their lowest combined scoring output from the RB position this season with only 11.60 points this week.
  • Fantasy Suicide had 114.80 points, their season-low.
  • The 52.20 points by the WRs on OutofLuck was the season-high for combined points from the position.
  • OutofLuck had two starters score more points than the highest-scoring starter for Fantasy Suicide.
  • Just because Robert Horry has seven NBA championship rings, doesn't mean he's one of the greats. Despite being on the winning team, Randall Cobb scored 4.80 points against a projected 15.30 and has now underachieved in three straight games.
  • Fantasy Suicide falls to 3-1 in comeback games this season.

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.
