Smooth Moves by Knotty Boys

  • Even if you cried trying to win, you still won. And the Toyota Hall of Fame is proud of Knotty Boys either way.
  • Knotty Boys is either a fortune teller or really knows their stuff. Rodney McLeod, who was picked up by Knotty Boys, scored 26.00 points against a projected 10.00, topping his projection by 160.0%.
  • Benched RB Jeremy Hill, who scored fewer points than any RB in the starting lineup with 6.40.
  • Took Philip Rivers out of the starting lineup, who scored 13.80 points on the bench, fewer than the starting QB.
  • What do Apache helicopters, F-117 Nighthawks and Terrelle Pryor Sr. have in common? They are all dangerous aerial weapons. He ranked fifth in the league in scoring among WRs this week with 36.95 points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Sometimes 257.54 is enough. Unfortunately, the Toyota Hall of Fame has confirmed this time it's a smaller number than 275.63.
  • With 6.00 points against a projected 13.17, Malcolm Smith did not meet his projection for the third straight game.
  • This is how people lose everything in casinos. Average Joe's thought their luck would change and went back to the well with Julius Thomas. However, he scored 4.80 points against a projected 9.86 and has now underachieved in three straight games.
  • With 4.00 points, Clay Matthews was last in the matchup in scoring and got only 66.2% of his projected point total, which is his lowest percentage of the season.
  • You've gotta hit rock button before you can start to rise. It was a season-low 6.50 points for Demaryius Thomas this week. It was also a season-low for his performance versus projections, reaching only 39.0% of a projected point total of 16.65.

What If

  • If Knotty Boys played Average Joe's every week, they would be 6-0 this season.
  • Knotty Boys would have beaten seven other teams besides Average Joe's this week.
  • Had they played each other last week, Knotty Boys would have defeated Average Joe's 233.03 - 185.10.
  • If they played the same schedule as Average Joe's, Knotty Boys would be 3-2.
  • Knotty Boys would be 35-31 if they played every team every week.
  • Besides Knotty Boys, Average Joe's would have been defeated by six other teams this week.
  • Average Joe's would be 2-3 if they played the same schedule as Knotty Boys.
  • If they played every team every week, Average Joe's would be 15-51.

Game Notes

  • Looks like teams bring their A game when they see them on the schedule. Of the losses Average Joe's has had, three were against opponents who topped their season scoring average that week.
  • Although Average Joe's lost, they did put up the 10th-highest score for a losing team in the league this season.
  • With the win, Knotty Boys has a four-game win streak, currently the longest in the league.
  • The 69.50 points by the RBs on Average Joe's was the season-high for combined points from the position.
  • The WRs on Knotty Boys collectively had their best week of the season with 79.15 points.
  • At 18.09 points, the margin of victory was the tightest of the week.
  • Just because Robert Horry has seven NBA championship rings, doesn't mean he's one of the greats. Despite being on the winning team, Jeremy Maclin scored 7.80 points against a projected 19.71 and has now underachieved in four straight games.
  • Not going to name names, but some people here aren't pulling their weight. Forget it, Carson Palmer needs to step it up! He scored 15.75 points against a projected 27.02 in the win, and has now scored below his projection in three straight games.

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.
