Smooth Moves by JaMeStOwN

  • JaMeStOwN scored massive brownie points with the Toyota Hall of Fame this week. Too bad brownie points don't count as real points. Not that you need help.
  • Made the right move in benching Phillip Dorsett, who had 3.20 points, the lowest total of any starting WR on JaMeStOwN.
  • What do Apache helicopters, F-117 Nighthawks and Golden Tate have in common? They are all dangerous aerial weapons. He ranked third in the league in scoring among WRs this week with 30.80 points.
  • The 15.40 points scored by Greg Olsen was the fourth-highest point total among TEs in the league this week.
  • Alshon Jeffery had his highest scoring output of the season with 16.30 points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • The fact that you're reading this means you have internet connection. Unfortunately, that's one less thing to blame your loss on. Don't tell the Hall.
  • Picked up Marcus Mariota but left him on the bench, where he ranked sixth in the league in scoring with 33.76 points.
  • Whoever gave you this advice, you might want to lose their number. Picked up and started Brian Hoyer, who then scored below his 19.28-point projection with 12.08 points.
  • 10 of the 13 starters scored less than their projected points.
  • This is how people lose everything in casinos. NikoSuave thought their luck would change and went back to the well with Alec Ogletree. However, he scored 7.00 points against a projected 13.80 and has now underachieved in four straight games.

What If

  • JaMeStOwN would be 5-1 if they played NikoSuave every week.
  • Besides NikoSuave, JaMeStOwN would have defeated four other teams this week.
  • Were they resting their players for this week? JaMeStOwN would have defeated NikoSuave 145.54 - 137.26 had they played each other last week.
  • JaMeStOwN would be 2-3 if they played the same schedule as NikoSuave.
  • JaMeStOwN would be 35-31 if they played every team every week.
  • NikoSuave would have lost to seven other teams besides JaMeStOwN this week.
  • NikoSuave would be 2-3 if they played the same schedule as JaMeStOwN.
  • NikoSuave would be 21-45 if they played every team every week.

Game Notes

  • Just like the Eagles' "Dream Team" of 2011, NikoSuave has underachieved lately. They scored 128.08 points against a projected 150.63 and has underachieved for five straight weeks.
  • With the loss, NikoSuave has the longest losing streak in the league, stretching back four straight games.
  • The 18.94-point win by JaMeStOwN failed to cover the 20.62-point spread.
  • We don't condone cheating, but this group of wide receivers might want to spray Stickum on their gloves. The 28.00 total points by the WRs on NikoSuave was their lowest WR output this season.
  • 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 14.42 points against a projected 24.21 in the win, and has now scored below his projection in three straight games.
  • Eddie Lacy did little to help JaMeStOwN, underperforming versus projections for the fifth straight game with 8.10 points against a projected 17.61.
  • NikoSuave is in last place in the league for the first week this season.
  • JaMeStOwN won despite failing to reach their projected point total, improving to 2-2 when doing so. NikoSuave also failed to reach their point expectation and falls to 1-4 in such 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.
