  • Weekly Grade

Wolfpack logged the second-highest point total this week and mercilessly danced on the burned-out remains of Ketel 1 153.04 to 60.58. These two teams are tied for 10th place with 2-6 records, but if you want to talk points, then Wolfpack has a clear lead, 849.82 to 757.68. Ketel 1 has had a bad run after losing their third in a row.

Smooth Moves by Wolfpack

  • A higher score than your opponent is a guaranteed way to win each week. Thank the Toyota Hall of Fame for that valuable insight.
  • Aaron Rodgers had 41.84 points, the third-highest QB score of the week and the eighth-highest QB score in the league this season.
  • Best in the world: Tyler Eifert can claim that at least for one week after his 29.20 point performance. It was highest score for any TE this week, as well as the fourth-highest TE score in the league this season.
  • Miss Cleo, is that you? The 19.40 points scored by Davante Adams, who Wolfpack picked up this week, beat his projected point total of 12.44 by 55.9%.
  • With 14.20 points scored versus a projected 10.67, Frank Gore scored more points than projected for three straight games.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Sometimes 60.58 is enough. Unfortunately, the Toyota Hall of Fame has confirmed this time it's a smaller number than 153.04.
  • Every one of their eight starters scored less than their projected points.
  • This is one of those mistakes that you continuously think about for ten years. Did not start Carson Palmer, who scored 32.52 points to rank seventh in the league in scoring.
  • Chris Thompson, who Ketel 1 picked up this week, scored below his 11.68-point projection with 9.10 points.
  • The 8.40 points scored by DeAndre Hopkins fell short of his 15.82-point projection, the sixth straight game where that has happened.

What If

  • If Wolfpack played Ketel 1 every week, they would be 5-3 this season.
  • Wolfpack would have beaten nine other teams besides Ketel 1 this week.
  • Were they resting their players for this week? Wolfpack would have defeated Ketel 1 89.24 - 84.46 had they played each other last week.
  • Wolfpack would be 2-5 if they played the same schedule as Ketel 1.
  • Wolfpack would be 32-56 if they played every team every week.
  • Ketel 1 would have lost to every other team in the league this week.
  • Ketel 1 would be 2-5 if they played the same schedule as Wolfpack.
  • Ketel 1 would be 21-67 if they played every team every week.

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.
