Smooth Moves by Salvi's Beasts

  • 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.
  • Finders keepers, losers weepers. Picked up the Carolina Panthers Defense, which beat their scoring projection by 117.4%, which was the highest percentage among the two teams.
  • Expect to see some trade offers for Theo Riddick. He ranked 10th in the league in scoring with 27.30 points.
  • Made a good move in sitting T.J. Yeldon this week. He brought in 9.60 points, the fewest of any RB on the team.
  • There are rumors that the military wants to model a new all-terrain vehicle based off of Ezekiel Elliott. He had the ninth-highest score among RBs in the league this week with 18.80 points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • 135.06 seems a lot higher when you're on the losing side of it. And the Toyota Hall of Fame knows you know that.
  • The Tennessee Titans Defense has now failed to reach their projection for three straight games. This week they scored 4.00 points versus a projected 9.15.
  • Who needs offense when the defense is so dominant!? Yellow Blackbirds got outscored 19.00 - 4.00 by Salvi's Beasts at the DEF position.
  • Salvi's Beasts had a better day at the QB position, topping Yellow Blackbirds 21.46 - 9.22.
  • It was a season-low scoring total for Russell Wilson, who had 9.22 points. He had a projected total of 23.40 points and this week was the third straight game of underperformance versus his projection.

What If

  • If Salvi's Beasts played Yellow Blackbirds every week, they'd be 5-3 this season.
  • Salvi's Beasts would have beaten three other teams besides Yellow Blackbirds this week.
  • Were they resting their players for this week? Salvi's Beasts would have defeated Yellow Blackbirds 147.62 - 132.90 had they played each other last week.
  • Salvi's Beasts would be 3-4 if they played the same schedule as Yellow Blackbirds.
  • If Salvi's Beasts had played every team in the league each week, they would be 33-39.
  • Besides Salvi's Beasts, Yellow Blackbirds would have been defeated by five other teams this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Salvi's Beasts, Yellow Blackbirds would be 3-4.
  • Yellow Blackbirds would be 30-42 if they played every team every week.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 8

Sterling Sharpe GB - WR 1993 vs. Tampa Bay 10 Catches, 147 yards, 4 touchdowns In his seven-year career with the Packers, Sharpe had plenty of big games, but none was better than his Week 8 effort against the Buccaneers in ’93.

In the midst of a season in which he would total a career-high 112 catches, Sharpe pulled in 10 passes against Tampa Bay, four of them culminating in the end zone. Those scores along with 147 receiving yards amounted to Sharpe’s best fantasy effort of his career, and the best fantasy tally by a WR in Week 8 since the AFL-NFL merger.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
