  • Weekly Grade

Brick City has really turned it on, earning their third win in a row when they clobbered Slick's Troops 90 to 58. They got a lift from Rob Gronkowski, who led the team with 23 points and Amari Cooper who had 16. Going streaking usually draws attention to yourself, but not in positive way. Not in this case. Since starting their win streak in Week 4, Brick City has moved from eighth place to fourth. They're doing it by scoring a lot of points and they own the third-highest overall point total in the league, averaging 91.00 points per matchup. With Adrian Peterson literally not showing up for Brick City, it could have been worse. Slick's Troops goes to 4-2 and remains in third place. Brick City has recently blown through The Gronking Dead (103 to 48) and Daemion's Team (103 to 75).

Smooth Moves by Brick City

  • Brick City 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.
  • Best in the world: Rob Gronkowski can claim that at least for one week after his 23 point performance. It was highest score for any TE this week, as well as the third-highest TE score in the league this season.
  • What do Apache helicopters, F-117 Nighthawks and Amari Cooper have in common? They are all dangerous aerial weapons. He ranked fifth in the league in scoring among WRs this week with 16 points.
  • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just Jarvis Landry posterizing opponents. He had the 10th-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 11 points.
  • Those were the projections? We thought that was the starting point. 5 of the 9 starters on Brick City exceeded their projected points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Don't worry, Slick's Troops, the Toyota Hall of Fame says losing isn't contagious. But it is embarrassing. And you should be embarrassed.
  • The Oakland Raiders Defense has now underachieved in three straight games after scoring a matchup-low 2 points against a projected 7.14.
  • 8 of the 9 starters scored less than their projected points.
  • A heated blanket would be a great gift for Graham Gano during this cold streak. He scored below his projection in four straight games after scoring 7 points against a projected 10.06 this week.
  • Slick's Troops could have used more points at WR, where Brick City outscored them 32 - 16.

What If

  • Brick City would be 3-3 if they played Slick's Troops every week.
  • Brick City would have beaten four other teams besides Slick's Troops this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Slick's Troops, Brick City would be 2-3.
  • If Brick City had played every team in the league each week, they would be 31-22-1.
  • Slick's Troops would have been beaten by every other team in the league this week.
  • And they say procrastination doesn't pay off! Had they played each other last week, Brick City would have lost to Slick's Troops 109 - 103.
  • If they played the same schedule as Brick City, Slick's Troops would be 3-2.
  • Slick's Troops would be 32-22 if they played every team every week.

Game Notes

  • The 90 points by Brick City was their lowest winning score of the season.
  • The margin of victory of 32 points was the largest in the league this week and eighth-biggest in the league this season.
  • Brick City has won three straight games, the longest current winning streak in the league.
  • With 58 points, Slick's Troops was last in the league in scoring and had their lowest score of the season.
  • The manager of Brick City was probably the person who destroyed the curve on every test in school. They scored 90 points against a projected 86.56 and beat their scoring projection for the fourth time this season, including the last three weeks in a row.
  • We don't condone cheating, but this group of wide receivers might want to spray Stickum on their gloves. The 16 total points by the WRs on Slick's Troops was their lowest WR output this season.
  • Slick's Troops could not extend their three-game win streak.
  • Two of the starters for Brick City scored higher than the leading scorer for Slick's Troops.

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.
