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.
  • The 29.60 points scored by Mike Evans ranked seventh in the league in scoring. It was also his highest output of the season.
  • With 12.60 points, Gary Barnidge had the third-highest score of any TE in the league this week.
  • Yellow Blackbirds won despite having only 5 of their 10 starters exceed their scoring projection.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Next week, be sure to ask Yellow Blackbirds where official Toyota Hall of Fame articles are kept.
  • Kept Randall Cobb on the bench, where he scored the ninth-most points in the league and beat his projected point total by 138.9%, the eighth-highest percentage in the league.
  • Whoever gave you this advice, you might want to lose their number. Picked up and started Hunter Henry, who then scored below his 8.94-point projection with 2.60 points.
  • It was a poor performance for Raucousfeskateers at WR, where they were outdone by Yellow Blackbirds 58.40 - 18.00.
  • It was a season-low scoring total for Travis Kelce, who had 4.40 points. He had a projected total of 14.19 points and this week was the third straight game of underperformance versus his projection.

What If

  • If Yellow Blackbirds played Raucousfeskateers every week, they'd be 3-4 this season.
  • Besides Raucousfeskateers, Yellow Blackbirds would have beaten only two other teams this week.
  • Were they resting their players for this week? Yellow Blackbirds would have defeated Raucousfeskateers 146.40 - 106.76 had they played each other last week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Raucousfeskateers, Yellow Blackbirds would be 3-3.
  • If Yellow Blackbirds had played every team in the league each week, they would be 27-36.
  • Raucousfeskateers would have lost to every other team in the league this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Yellow Blackbirds, Raucousfeskateers would be 4-2.
  • If they played every team every week, Raucousfeskateers would be 29-34.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 7

Shannon Sharpe Den - TE 2002 vs. Kansas City 12 Catches, 214 yards, 2 touchdowns In a career that included eight Pro Bowls and a seven top 2 finishes at the TE position in fantasy scoring, Sharpe was never better than his 214-yard, two-TD performance against the division-rival Chiefs in Week 7 of 2002.

In fact, no tight end has ever had a better week since the AFL-NFL merger in 1970. Sharpe still stands as the only tight end to tally 200-plus receiving yards in a game and his PPR-popping 12 catches is a total that has only been reached 17 times by a TE since the merger.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
