Smooth Moves by Eskimo Brothers

  • If this were a dream sequence, you'd hear a deep voice announce, "Eskimo Brothers, the Toyota Hall of Famer." But it's not.
  • Sat Lamar Miller, who scored 20.00 points, fewer than any RB in the starting lineup.
  • There are rumors that the military wants to model a new all-terrain vehicle based off of Jonathan Stewart. He had the third-highest score among RBs in the league this week with 33.50 points.
  • The 30.30 points scored by Dez Bryant was the fourth-highest score by a WR in the league this week.
  • With 33.00 points versus a projected 20.86, Kwon Alexander exceeded his scoring projection by 58.2%.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • 303.88 seems a lot higher when you're on the losing side of it. And the Toyota Hall of Fame knows you know that.
  • Picked up Travaris Cadet, who was last in the matchup in points scored with 1.70.
  • The RBs on Average Joe's let them down, getting outgunned by the RBs on Eskimo Brothers 54.20 - 17.80.
  • 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. Tyrann Mathieu scored a season-low 2.00 points, 10.7% of his projected 18.62, which is his lowest percentage of the year.
  • You've gotta hit rock button before you can start to rise. It was a season-low 2.00 points for Reggie Nelson this week. It was also a season-low for his performance versus projections, reaching only 16.8% of a projected point total of 11.91.

What If

  • If Eskimo Brothers played Average Joe's every week, they'd be 5-3 this season.

  • If Eskimo Brothers had played every team in the league each week, they would be 32-56.
  • Besides Eskimo Brothers, Average Joe's would have been defeated by nine other teams this week.
  • And they say procrastination doesn't pay off! Had they played each other last week, Eskimo Brothers would have lost to Average Joe's 287.42 - 193.63.
  • If they played the same schedule as Eskimo Brothers, Average Joe's would be 2-5.
  • If they played every team every week, Average Joe's would be 24-64.

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.
