Smooth Moves by Yellow Blackbirds

  • If this were a dream sequence, you'd hear a deep voice announce, "Yellow Blackbirds, the Toyota Hall of Famer." But it's not.
  • With 26.36 points, Russell Wilson had the ninth-highest score in the league this week.
  • Sat Devontae Booker, who scored 5.30 points, fewer than any RB in the starting lineup.
  • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just Odell Beckham Jr. posterizing opponents. He had the sixth-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 19.66 points.
  • There are rumors that the military wants to model a new all-terrain vehicle based off of Lamar Miller. He had the 10th-highest score among RBs in the league this week with 16.90 points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Don't worry, Compasivo's Team, the Toyota Hall of Fame says losing isn't contagious. But it is embarrassing. And you should be embarrassed.
  • Compasivo's Team picked up Kenneth Farrow, who then fell short of his 14.81-point projection by scoring 5.30 points.
  • This is how people lose everything in casinos. Compasivo's Team thought their luck would change and went back to the well with Jamison Crowder. However, he scored 4.96 points against a projected 15.21 and has now underachieved in three straight games.
  • Compasivo's Team could have used more points from the TE position, where Yellow Blackbirds beat them 12.20 - 4.10.
  • Stefon Diggs had a season-low 3.30 points against a projected 14.74 and has now underachieved in four straight games.

What If

  • Yellow Blackbirds would be 7-8 if they played Compasivo's Team every week.
  • Yellow Blackbirds would have beaten six other teams besides Compasivo's Team this week.
  • Were they resting their players for this week? Yellow Blackbirds would have defeated Compasivo's Team 99.70 - 89.90 had they played each other last week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Compasivo's Team, Yellow Blackbirds would be 7-5.
  • If Yellow Blackbirds had played every team in the league each week, they would be 68-61.
  • Compasivo's Team would have lost to three other teams besides Yellow Blackbirds this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Yellow Blackbirds, Compasivo's Team would be 6-6.
  • Compasivo's Team would be 75-54 if they played every team every week.

Game Notes

  • Yellow Blackbirds underachieved for the 11th time this season, including the last three weeks in a row, scoring 135.82 points against a projected 141.16 this week.
  • Abe Lincoln once said, "You cannot help people permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves." Somebody tell Brandin Cooks that. His 37.60 points led the league and was the 20th-most points scored this season, but Compasivo's Team could not get the win.
  • Yellow Blackbirds covered the 2.47-point spread, winning by 3.72 points.
  • Just because Robert Horry has seven NBA championship rings, doesn't mean he's one of the greats. Despite being on the winning team, Antonio Brown scored 9.00 points against a projected 20.45 and has now underachieved in three straight games.
  • Mike Evans did little to help Yellow Blackbirds, underperforming versus projections for the third straight game with 9.90 points against a projected 19.70.
  • With the win, Yellow Blackbirds improves to 2-1 in close games this season.
  • Compasivo's Team got the best total score from their WRs of any team this week with 63.86 points.
  • The draft continues to pay off for Yellow Blackbirds, which got 80.0% of their points from players they drafted.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 15

Jamaal Charles KC - RB 2013 vs. Oakland 215 yards from scrimmage, 5 touchdowns Charles’ prowess as a runner is well known, as he was second on the all-time running back list coming into 2016 with an average of 5.5 yards per carry (min.

750 career carries). But in Week 15 of ’13, his considerable skills as a receiver were thrust into the spotlight, as he hauled in eight passes for 195 receiving yards and four touchdowns catches against the Raiders. He also added a one-yard TD run to what stands as the second-best Week 15 fantasy output since the AFL/NFL merger. It is also the second-best receiving yardage total by a running back in any week during that span, trailing only the 204 yards of Marshall Faulk in Week 16 of ’99.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
