Smooth Moves by Yellow Blackbirds

  • A higher score than your opponent is a guaranteed way to win each week. Thank the Toyota Hall of Fame for that valuable insight.
  • Yellow Blackbirds saw their fourth-largest single-week point total by a player this season with Russell Wilson scoring 29.86 points. The score was also high enough to rank eighth in the league.
  • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just Antonio Brown posterizing opponents. He had the eighth-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 22.56 points.
  • Mark Ingram scored 22.50 points, which ranked seventh out of all the RBs in the league this week.
  • The Cincinnati Bengals Defense scored a season-high 13.00 points and beat their scoring projection by 69.3%, which also is a season-high.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • 145.42 seems a lot higher when you're on the losing side of it. And the Toyota Hall of Fame knows you know that.
  • This is one of those mistakes that you continuously think about for ten years. Did not start Blake Bortles, who scored 29.88 points to rank seventh in the league in scoring.
  • Picked up Jimmy Graham, who scored 17.30 points against a projected 10.12, but left him on the bench.
  • The 1.50 points scored by DeSean Jackson was the lowest total in the matchup and 10.0% of his projected point total of 15.04, which was his lowest percentage of the season.
  • With 6.10 points against a projected 15.46, Brandin Cooks did not meet his projection for the third straight game.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 4

Anthony Allen Was - WR 1987 vs. St. Louis 7 Catches, 255 yards, 3 touchdowns To say that Allen’s Week 4 performance in ’87 stands out in his NFL career would be a major understatement.

In what was the first of three games played that season with replacement players due to a player’s strike, Allen took advantage of his moment in the spotlight (and the Cardinals scab secondary) to the tune of 255 receiving yards and three touchdowns. He set the Washington franchise record for receiving yards, which still stands today. In total, Allen played parts of just five NFL seasons - including just those three strike games in ’87 – amassing a total of 767 receiving yards, a third of which came in this Week 4 contest.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
