Smooth Moves by Yeezy Taught Me

  • Yeezy Taught Me 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.
  • The 35 points scored by Tom Brady was the third-highest QB score of the week and is the 10th-highest QB score in the league this season.
  • Lean, mean, and haunting your dreams. The Denver Broncos Defense was a terror this week, accounting for 24 points. It was the highest DEF score of the week and the third-highest score among DEF in the league this season.
  • The 21 points scored by Matt Forte was the second-highest score of any RB in the league this week.
  • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just A.J. Green posterizing opponents. He had the fourth-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 15 points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • 124 seems a lot higher when you're on the losing side of it. And the Toyota Hall of Fame knows you know that.
  • Did not start Graham Gano, who beat his scoring projection with 14 points against a projected 6.79.
  • A heated blanket would be a great gift for Alex Smith during this cold streak. He scored below his projection in three straight games after scoring 10 points against a projected 20.39 this week.
  • Even though g unit lost, only 2 of their 9 starters scored less than their projected points.
  • The 7 points scored by Allen Robinson fell short of his 9.98-point projection, the fourth straight game where that has happened.

What If

  • If Yeezy Taught Me played g unit every week, they would be 6-2 this season.
  • Yeezy Taught Me would have been undefeated if they played every team in the league this week.
  • Were they resting their players for this week? Yeezy Taught Me would have defeated g unit 144 - 97 had they played each other last week.
  • Yeezy Taught Me would be 5-2 if they played the same schedule as g unit.
  • If Yeezy Taught Me had played every team in the league each week, they would be 68-19-1.
  • In addition to Yeezy Taught Me, g unit would have lost to just one other team this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Yeezy Taught Me, g unit would be 4-3.
  • If they played every team every week, g unit would be 46-41-1.

  • The 124 points by Yeezy Taught Me led the league. It is the second time they have led the league in scoring this season.

  • The 10-point margin of victory was the smallest in the league this week.
  • Just because Robert Horry has seven NBA championship rings, doesn't mean he's one of the greats. Despite being on the winning team, Brandon Marshall scored 6 points against a projected 11.11 and has now underachieved in three straight games.

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.
