Smooth Moves by Compasivo's Team

  • The Toyota Hall of Fame would have its eyes on you for this week's win. But the Toyota Hall of Fame doesn't have eyes. Obviously.
  • The 43.50 points by Andrew Luck led the entire league in scoring.
  • Brandin Cooks laughed in the face of the experts this week, beating his scoring projection by a matchup-leading 113.0% and scoring the sixth-most points in the league with 33.40 points.
  • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just Jordan Matthews posterizing opponents. He had the sixth-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 24.40 points.
  • This is the bar, and this is the team jumping over it. Compasivo's Team had 7 of their 10 starters exceed their projected points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Sometimes 113.42 is enough. Unfortunately, the Toyota Hall of Fame has confirmed this time it's a smaller number than 180.70.
  • Did not start Larry Fitzgerald, who led the team in scoring with 28.10 points and beat his projected point total by 89.5%, the highest percentage on the team.
  • It was a beating at QB for Longhorns, as they were outscored 43.50 - 16.62 by Compasivo's Team.
  • It was a bad week at RB for Longhorns, who was outscored at the position 25.50 - 9.10 by Compasivo's Team.
  • Longhorns was not able to win even though only 4 of their 10 starters fell short of their projected point total.

What If

  • Besides Longhorns, Compasivo's Team would have defeated seven other teams this week.
  • Compasivo's Team would have had to score 67.29 fewer points to lose to all teams in the league this week.
  • Longhorns would have been beaten by every other team in the league this week.
  • Longhorns would've needed an additional 68.39 points to beat all teams in the league this week.

Game Notes

  • The 67.28-point margin of victory by Compasivo's Team was the largest in the league this week.
  • Longhorns got smallest total score from their RB position of any team this week with 9.10 points.
  • The highest-scoring group of WRs in the league this week was on Compasivo's Team, which got 91.70 points from the position.
  • Compasivo's Team had the second-highest score in the league this week with 180.70 points.

  • Compasivo's Team might want to see a chiropractor, because they were carrying Antonio Gates on their back the whole week. He was on the winning team, but only scored 5.00 points against his projected 9.99.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 1

Earnest Gray NYG - WR 1980 vs. St. Louis 9 Catches, 174 yards, 4 touchdowns A second-round pick by the Giants in 1979, Earnest Gray posted modest numbers in his rookie campaign, with just 28 catches, 537 yards and four total touchdowns.

So it was unexpected, to say the least, when he opened up his sophomore campaign with a 174-yard performance that included four touchdowns (matching his total from his entire first season). Gray would go on to finish '80 campaign with 10 touchdowns, but no other performance that season came close to what he did in the Week 1 opener, which stands as the greatest Week 1 fantasy effort by a wide receiver since the AFL/NFL merger in 1970.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
