Smooth Moves by The ODB

  • If this were a dream sequence, you'd hear a deep voice announce, "The ODB, the Toyota Hall of Famer." But it's not.
  • The ODB saw their fifth-largest single-week point total by a player this season with LeGarrette Blount scoring 26.40 points. The score was also high enough to rank fifth in the league.
  • The ODB won despite having only 2 of their 9 starters exceed their projected points.
  • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just Michael Crabtree posterizing opponents. He had the sixth-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 15.60 points.
  • The ODB had to contend with four of their bench players not playing this week and they were still able to get the win.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Don't worry, The Deflators, the Toyota Hall of Fame says losing isn't contagious. But it is embarrassing. And you should be embarrassed.
  • Left Quincy Enunwa on the bench, where he scored 13.30 points and beat his projected point total by 166.5%, the sixth-highest percentage in the league this week.
  • Blake Bortles, who The Deflators picked up this week, scored below his 19.73-point projection with 13.14 points.
  • With 0.50 points, Martellus Bennett was last on the team in scoring and got only 8.0% of his 6.23 projected points, his lowest percentage of the season.
  • With 3.20 points against a projected 7.56, Sterling Shepard did not meet his projection for the fourth straight game.

What If

  • If The ODB played The Deflators every week, they'd be 4-3 this season.
  • The ODB would have beaten three other teams besides The Deflators this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as The Deflators, The ODB would be 3-3.
  • The ODB would be 31-32 if they played every team every week.
  • Besides The ODB, The Deflators would have been defeated by six other teams this week.
  • And they say procrastination doesn't pay off! Had they played each other last week, The ODB would have lost to The Deflators 107.28 - 95.22.
  • The Deflators would be 4-2 if they played the same schedule as The ODB.
  • If they played every team every week, The Deflators would be 30-33.

Game Notes

  • The tragedy of being an underachiever is that The ODB knows what they should be, but reality keeps telling them that they're wrong. They scored 91.22 points against a projected 98.87 and underachieved for the fifth time this season, including the last four weeks in a row.
  • The ODB put up their smallest winning point total of the year.
  • The ODB covered the 13.34-point spread, winning by 13.88 points.
  • The ODB was able to win with little help from Jordy Nelson, who had a season-low 0.90 points and is on a three-week underperforming streak.
  • Despite being on the winning team, Travis Kelce had a season-low 2.40 points against a projected 9.18 and has now underachieved in three straight games.
  • This must be how Jay Leno feels with a garage full of high-performance cars. The ODB got a combined 41.30 points from their RBs, their highest combined scoring output from the RB position this season.
  • The Deflators had 77.34 points, their season-low.
  • The WRs from The Deflators scored the fewest points of any team in the league this week, with only 15.40 points.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 7

Shannon Sharpe Den - TE 2002 vs. Kansas City 12 Catches, 214 yards, 2 touchdowns In a career that included eight Pro Bowls and a seven top 2 finishes at the TE position in fantasy scoring, Sharpe was never better than his 214-yard, two-TD performance against the division-rival Chiefs in Week 7 of 2002.

In fact, no tight end has ever had a better week since the AFL-NFL merger in 1970. Sharpe still stands as the only tight end to tally 200-plus receiving yards in a game and his PPR-popping 12 catches is a total that has only been reached 17 times by a TE since the merger.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
