Smooth Moves by The Van Buren Boys

  • A higher score than your opponent is a guaranteed way to win each week. Thank the Toyota Hall of Fame for that valuable insight.
  • Try to beat that! Derek Carr scored the most points of any player on The Van Buren Boys this season with 46.82.
  • Put WR Michael Thomas on the bench, where he scored 12.30 points, fewer than any WR in the starting lineup.
  • The 12.00 points scored by Dan Bailey, who The Van Buren Boys picked up this week, beat his projected point total of 7.68 by 56.2%.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Sometimes 138.76 is enough. Unfortunately, the Toyota Hall of Fame has confirmed this time it's a smaller number than 170.52.
  • This is one of those mistakes that you continuously think about for ten years. Did not start Blake Bortles, who scored 35.68 points to rank fourth in the league in scoring.
  • With 3.00 points, the Arizona Cardinals Defense was last on the team in scoring and got only 33.0% of their 9.10 projected points, their lowest percentage of the season.
  • Compasivo's Team was not able to win even though only 3 of their 10 starters fell short of their projected point total.
  • Did not take Ty Montgomery (0 points) out of the starting lineup this week.

  • Compasivo's Team would be 5-2 if they played the same schedule as The Van Buren Boys.

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.
