Smooth Moves by Francisco's Team

  • If this were a dream sequence, you'd hear a deep voice announce, "Francisco's Team, the Toyota Hall of Famer." But it's not.
  • Just call him Fred Flintstone, because he was toting the rock all day long. David Johnson had 34.80 points, the highest RB score of the week and the second-highest RB score in the league this season.
  • With 40.20 points, Odell Beckham Jr. had the highest WR score of the week and the second-highest WR score in the league this season.
  • Is this your audition for head talent scout of a pro team? Picked up Lorenzo Alexander, who beat his scoring projection by 152.7%, the ninth-highest percentage in the league.
  • Francisco's Team appears to be some sort of fantasy prophet in the making. Cameron Meredith, who was picked up by Francisco's Team, scored 22.30 points against a projected 11.68, topping his projection by 90.9%.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Sometimes 124.48 is enough. Unfortunately, the Toyota Hall of Fame has confirmed this time it's a smaller number than 166.06.
  • Did not start the Kansas City Chiefs Defense, which scored 21.00 points and beat their projected point total by a team-leading 73.7%.
  • Could've started Martellus Bennett, who underachieved, but still outscored the starting TE with 9.80 against a projected 10.27.
  • Patrick Peterson was last on the team in scoring with 1.10 points against a projected 5.22 and has now underachieved in three straight games.
  • The WR corps couldn't keep pace with their counterparts from Francisco's Team and were outscored 73.40 - 32.70.

What If

  • Francisco's Team would be 4-2 if they played TotalKapital every week.
  • Francisco's Team would have beaten eight other teams besides TotalKapital this week.
  • Were they resting their players for this week? Francisco's Team would have defeated TotalKapital 187.06 - 178.78 had they played each other last week.
  • Francisco's Team would be 4-1 if they played the same schedule as TotalKapital.
  • If Francisco's Team had played every team in the league each week, they would be 44-22.

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.
