Smooth Moves by '00&'12 Champs

  • If this were a dream sequence, you'd hear a deep voice announce, "'00&'12 Champs, the Toyota Hall of Famer." But it's not.

  • With only 4 of their 9 starters beating their projected points, '00&'12 Champs was still able to win.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Somehow, all of your players had two bye weeks this week. The Toyota Hall of Fame calls that a bye bye week. Yes, it's a bad joke, but it's still better than your score.
  • Missed an opportunity by leaving Stefon Diggs on the bench. He scored 29 points, the fifth-highest score in the league this week.
  • With 5 points against a projected 8.56, the Philadephia Eagles Defense did not meet their projection for the third straight game.
  • It's times like these when it's important to support your players when they're down. So move the mouse pointer away from the DROP button. Jordan Reed scored a season-low 6 points, 41.7% of his projected 14.39, which is his lowest percentage of the year.
  • Michael Thomas had two season-lows this week. He scored a season-low 4 points and recorded only 34.5% of his 11.61-point projection.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 10

Marshawn Lynch Sea - RB 2014 vs. New York Giants 21 Carries, 140 yards, 4 touchdowns Beast Mode had many memorable games as a member of the Seahawks, but none packed a bigger fantasy punch than his Week 10 bulldozing job against the Giants in ’14.

Against the G-men, Lynch punched in four of Seattle’s five touchdowns, and might have scored all five TDs had QB Russell Wilson not called his own number on a one-yard score late in the contest. In addition to his end-zone parade, Lynch rolled for 140 yards on the ground en route to delivering the best Week 10 fantasy performance by a running back 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.
