Smooth Moves by Vandelay Industries

  • The Toyota Hall of Fame would have its eyes on you for this week's win. But the Toyota Hall of Fame doesn't have eyes. Obviously.
  • Put this performance on the season's highlight reel. Drew Brees led all QBs in scoring this week with 33.60 points, also the fourth-highest QB score for the season.
  • Terrance West seemed to take offense to this week's projected points. He ranked seventh in the league in scoring and beat his scoring projection by 140.9%, the sixth-highest percentage in the league.
  • Took Matthew Stafford out of the starting lineup, who scored 28.70 points on the bench, fewer than the starting QB.
  • With 9.20 points, Charles Clay had the fifth-highest score of any TE in the league this week.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • It's okay to regret not taking a sick day to study the Toyota Hall of Fame's articles. But it's not okay to do it again.
  • Left Jonathan Stewart on the bench, where he scored 24.00 points and surpassed his scoring projection by 88.1%, the highest percentage of any player on the team.
  • Could've started Zach Miller, who underachieved, but still outscored the starting TE with 8.10 against a projected 8.91.
  • All that glitters is not gold. Picked up Nick Novak, who scored 8.00 points against his projected 11.75.
  • 7 of the starters on Jon's Mediocre Team underperformed versus their projections.

What If

  • If Vandelay Industries played Jon's Mediocre Team every week, they would be 4-2 this season.
  • Vandelay Industries would've been undefeated if they played every team in the league this week.
  • Were they resting their players for this week? Vandelay Industries would have defeated Jon's Mediocre Team 97.40 - 67.70 had they played each other last week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Jon's Mediocre Team, Vandelay Industries would be 3-2.
  • If Vandelay Industries had played every team in the league each week, they would be 39-27.
  • Jon's Mediocre Team would have lost to eight other teams besides Vandelay Industries this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Vandelay Industries, Jon's Mediocre Team would be 2-3.
  • Jon's Mediocre Team would be 26-40 if they played every team every week.

Game Notes

  • Vandelay Industries put up their smallest winning point total of the year.
  • The 131.80 points by Vandelay Industries led the league. It is the second time they have led the league in scoring this season.
  • Despite being on the winning team, Marvin Jones Jr. had a season-low 8.80 points against a projected 15.62 and has now underachieved in three straight games.
  • The 49.18-point margin of victory was the biggest of the season for Vandelay Industries and fourth-largest in the league this season.
  • The RBs on Jon's Mediocre Team collectively had their worst week of the season with only 10.60 points.
  • Two of the starters for Vandelay Industries scored higher than the leading scorer for Jon's Mediocre Team.
  • Just because Robert Horry has seven NBA championship rings, doesn't mean he's one of the greats. Despite being on the winning team, Chandler Catanzaro scored 4.00 points against a projected 9.17 and has now underachieved in four straight games.
  • With the big loss, Jon's Mediocre Team falls to 1-2 in blowout games this season.

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.
