Smooth Moves by Team GI Bill

  • If this were a dream sequence, you'd hear a deep voice announce, "Team GI Bill, the Toyota Hall of Famer." But it's not.
  • The 17.00 points scored by Josh Lambo was the second-highest K score of the week and is the fourth-highest K score in the league this season.
  • Benched the Tennessee Titans Defense, which had the lowest DEF score on the team with 1.00 point.
  • Do you put a LB or DB on him? You might have to put both on him if this continues. Rob Gronkowski scored 19.30 points to rank third among TEs in the league this week.
  • With 16.00 points versus a projected 12.73, Demaryius Thomas exceeded his scoring projection by 25.7%.

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.
  • Picked up and started Brian Hoyer, who scored a matchup-worst 9.8% of his projected point total for 1.96 points.
  • Jordy Nelson was last on the team in scoring with 1.90 points against a projected 15.59 and has now underachieved in three straight games.
  • Lost to Team GI Bill, which had their lowest-scoring week of the season.
  • A heated blanket would be a great gift for Alec Ogletree during this cold streak. He scored below his projection in five straight games after scoring 7.50 points against a projected 14.99 this week.

What If

  • If Team GI Bill played 50 CAL every week, they'd be 4-3 this year.
  • Besides 50 CAL, Team GI Bill would have defeated four other teams this week.
  • Had they played each other last week, Team GI Bill would have defeated 50 CAL 153.00 - 132.16.
  • Team GI Bill would be 3-3 if they played the same schedule as 50 CAL.
  • If Team GI Bill had played every team in the league each week, they would be 46-45.
  • Besides Team GI Bill, 50 CAL would have been defeated by 10 other teams this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Team GI Bill, 50 CAL would be 3-3.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 7

Shannon Sharpe Den - TE 2002 vs. Kansas City 12 Catches, 214 yards, 2 touchdowns In a career that included eight Pro Bowls and a seven top 2 finishes at the TE position in fantasy scoring, Sharpe was never better than his 214-yard, two-TD performance against the division-rival Chiefs in Week 7 of 2002.

In fact, no tight end has ever had a better week since the AFL-NFL merger in 1970. Sharpe still stands as the only tight end to tally 200-plus receiving yards in a game and his PPR-popping 12 catches is a total that has only been reached 17 times by a TE since the merger.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
