Smooth Moves by Knotty Boys

  • Outscoring your opponent is a sure-fire way to win each week. You can thank the Toyota Hall of Fame for that valuable insight.
  • Took Coby Fleener out of the starting lineup, who scored 7.60 points on the bench, fewer than the starting TE.
  • With 20.00 points, Cliff Avril, who Knotty Boys picked up this week, beat his 9.98-point projection by 100.4%.
  • Wisely sat Philip Rivers this week, who had 16.65 points, the lowest QB score on the team.
  • Terrelle Pryor Sr. scored 26.10 points, the ninth-highest WR score in the league this week.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Funny, the Hall provides articles you could have studied. But instead you watched The Redwood Curtain cry trying.
  • Left Jordan Howard on the bench, where he scored the sixth-most points in the league and beat his projected point total by 264.7%, the fourth-highest percentage in the league.
  • This is how people lose everything in casinos. The Redwood Curtain thought their luck would change and went back to the well with Doug Baldwin. However, he scored 9.10 points against a projected 18.03 and has now underachieved in four straight games.
  • A heated blanket would be a great gift for Brandon Marshall during this cold streak. He scored below his projection in three straight games after scoring 10.80 points against a projected 18.20 this week.
  • The 12.00 points scored by Marcus Peters fell short of his 16.98-point projection, the fourth straight game where that has happened.

What If

  • If Knotty Boys played The Redwood Curtain every week, they would be 3-5 this season.
  • Besides The Redwood Curtain, Knotty Boys would have defeated seven other teams this week.
  • Were they resting their players for this week? Knotty Boys would have defeated The Redwood Curtain 235.20 - 185.95 had they played each other last week.
  • If they played the same schedule as The Redwood Curtain, Knotty Boys would be 2-5.
  • If Knotty Boys had played every team in the league each week, they would be 44-44.
  • The Redwood Curtain would have lost to four other teams besides Knotty Boys this week.
  • The Redwood Curtain would be 4-3 if they played the same schedule as Knotty Boys.
  • If they played every team every week, The Redwood Curtain would be 64-24.

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.
