Smooth Moves by Angry Duck's

  • Even if you cried trying to win, you still won. And the Toyota Hall of Fame is proud of Angry Duck's either way.
  • Derek Carr scored 52.15 points, the highest of any player on Angry Duck's this season.
  • With 32.10 points, Travis Kelce had the second-highest TE score of the week and the ninth-best TE score in the league this season.
  • Thomas Davis, who was picked up by Angry Duck's, scored 24.07 points against a projected 17.98, topping his projection by 33.9%.
  • There are rumors that the military wants to model a new all-terrain vehicle based off of DeMarco Murray. He had the fifth-highest score among RBs in the league this week with 30.90 points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Some teams are destined to beat teams like Grogans and move on to Toyota Hall of Fame greatness. Ironically, you are included in that destiny, because you played yourself.
  • Mark Ingram scored the fewest points in the league this week with a season-low -1.20 points.
  • With 7.40 points, Spencer Ware had his lowest output of the season and tallied just 32.9% of his 22.46 projected points, his lowest percentage of the year.
  • It was a season-low scoring total for Jamie Collins, who had 5.00 points. He had a projected total of 16.37 points and this week was the fourth straight game of underperformance versus his projection.
  • It's times like these when it's important to support your players when they're down. So move the mouse pointer away from the DROP button. The Minnesota Vikings Defense scored a season-low 8.55 points, 50.3% of their projected 17.00, which is their lowest percentage of the year.

What If

  • If Angry Duck's played Grogans every week, they'd be 4-4 this season.
  • Angry Duck's would've been undefeated if they played every team in the league this week.
  • Angry Duck's would be 4-3 if they played the same schedule as Grogans.
  • If Angry Duck's had played every team in the league each week, they would be 54-34.
  • Grogans would not have lost to any other team in the league besides Angry Duck's this week.
  • And they say procrastination doesn't pay off! Had they played each other last week, Angry Duck's would have lost to Grogans 300.95 - 257.33.
  • Grogans would be 4-3 if they played the same schedule as Angry Duck's.
  • Grogans would be 52-36 if they played every team every week.

Game Notes

  • Grogans has lost five times and four of them have come to teams who beat their scoring average in that matchup.
  • This matchup had the top two scoring teams in the league this week.
  • Hey, I'm sure Angry Duck's appreciates the tough competition. In the loss, Grogans had the second-highest losing score in the league this season with 307.63 points.
  • The 2.70-point margin of victory was the smallest in the league this 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, Emmanuel Sanders scored 10.80 points against a projected 17.49 and has now underachieved in four straight games.
  • Not going to name names, but some people here aren't pulling their weight. Forget it, Adam Jones needs to step it up! He scored 8.13 points against a projected 11.56 in the win, and has now scored below his projection in five straight games.
  • The highest-scoring group of WRs in the league this week was on Grogans, which got 90.50 points from the position.
  • Angry Duck's improves to 1-1 in close games this season.

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.
