Smooth Moves by Yellow Blackbirds

  • Yellow Blackbirds scored massive brownie points with the Toyota Hall of Fame this week. Too bad brownie points don't count as real points. Not that you need help.
  • Not quite the best, but pretty darn effective. Lamar Miller had the fourth-highest RB score of the week and the seventh-highest RB score in the league this season with 32.80 points.
  • Even the Wright brothers would be proud of this aerial performance. Odell Beckham Jr. had 43.20 points, the highest WR score of the week and the second-highest WR score in the league this season.
  • Did you use any black magic this week? Yellow Blackbirds was still able to pull out a win with only 4 of their 10 starters exceeding their projected points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Next week, be sure to ask Yellow Blackbirds where official Toyota Hall of Fame articles are kept.
  • Did not start Golden Tate, who scored 30.80 points, surpassing his projected points by 127.6%, the 10th-highest percentage in the league.
  • Julian Edelman has scored below his projection in every game this season after scoring 10.40 points against a projected 14.20 this week.
  • Longhorns had 8 of their 10 starters score less than their projected points.
  • This is how people lose everything in casinos. Longhorns thought their luck would change and went back to the well with Jeremy Hill. However, he scored 5.10 points against a projected 7.57 and has now underachieved in three straight games.

What If

  • If Yellow Blackbirds played Longhorns every week, they would be 3-3 this season.
  • Besides Longhorns, Yellow Blackbirds would have defeated six other teams this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Longhorns, Yellow Blackbirds would be 1-4.
  • If Yellow Blackbirds had played every team in the league each week, they would be 24-30.
  • Longhorns would have lost to four other teams besides Yellow Blackbirds this week.
  • Timing really is everything. Yellow Blackbirds would have lost to Longhorns 154.70 - 122.44 had they played each other last week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Yellow Blackbirds, Longhorns would be 1-4.
  • Longhorns would be 23-31 if they played every team every week.

Game Notes

  • Longhorns has lost four times and three of them have come to teams who beat their scoring average in that matchup.
  • Yellow Blackbirds had their largest margin of victory so far this year at 32.38 points.
  • The WRs for Longhorns combined to score 58.20 points, 51.0% of the team's total score.
  • Speed, strength, agility, vision, and intelligence. It was all on display this week when the RBs on Yellow Blackbirds collectively had their best week of the season with 51.90 points.
  • Yellow Blackbirds had two starters score more points than the highest-scoring starter for Longhorns.
  • Just because Robert Horry has seven NBA championship rings, doesn't mean he's one of the greats. Despite being on the winning team, Chandler Catanzaro scored 4.00 points against a projected 9.17 and has now underachieved in four straight games.
  • Yellow Blackbirds outdid their projection in the win, while Longhorns came in under their point expectation. Yellow Blackbirds is now 1-0 when overachieving, while Longhorns falls to 0-3 when failing to reach their projection.
  • Longhorns is in last place in the league for the second week this season.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 6

LaDainian Tomlinson SD - RB 2005 vs. Oakland 179 yards from scrimmage, 1 TD rush, 1 TD reception, 1 TD pass In his Week 6 contest against the Raiders in ’05, Tomlinson became just the seventh player in NFL history to throw for a TD, run for a TD and catch a TD pass in the same game.

And, while his effort stands as a great testament to LT’s all-around skills, it goes down as just the eighth-best fantasy performance by a running back since the AFL-NFL merger. In fact, Tomlinson managed to one-up himself in Week 6 in each of the following two seasons, rolling up 135 total yards and four scores against San Francisco in ’06, and 214 total yards and four touchdowns against Oakland (again) in ’07 – which stands as the top Week 6 RB fantasy performance.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
