Smooth Moves by Go Long Chong

  • Melvin Gordon didn't have the best score of the week, but there ain't no shame in his game. He had 69 points, the second-highest RB score of the week and the seventh-highest RB score in the league this season.
  • If this were a dream sequence, you'd hear a deep voice announce, "Go Long Chong, the Toyota Hall of Famer." But it's not.
  • Matt Forte does not believe in running back by committee. He had the best RB score of the week and the second-highest RB score in the league this season with 74 points.
  • Go Long Chong appears to be some sort of fantasy prophet in the making. Julius Thomas, who was picked up by Go Long Chong, scored 15 points against a projected 10.90, topping his projection by 37.6%.
  • David Johnson put the team on his back with 62 points, the fourth-highest score among RBs in the league this week.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Don't worry, Chiefs Maniac, the Toyota Hall of Fame says losing isn't contagious. But it is embarrassing. And you should be embarrassed.
  • Had a chance to start Michael Thomas, who outdid his scoring projection of 13.43 points by scoring 28 points.
  • Stefon Diggs was last in the matchup in scoring with 3 points against a projected 16.34 and has now underachieved in three straight games.
  • Should've started Jimmy Graham, who underachieved, but still had more points than the starting TE with 10 against a projected 13.37.
  • A heated blanket would be a great gift for DeSean Jackson during this cold streak. He scored below his projection in four straight games after scoring 8 points against a projected 12.41 this week.

What If

  • Go Long Chong would be 5-2 if they played Chiefs Maniac every week.
  • Go Long Chong would have beaten every other team in the league this week.
  • Were they resting their players for this week? Go Long Chong would have defeated Chiefs Maniac 243 - 208 had they played each other last week.
  • Go Long Chong would be 4-2 if they played the same schedule as Chiefs Maniac.
  • If Go Long Chong had played every team in the league each week, they would be 61-16.
  • In addition to Go Long Chong, Chiefs Maniac would have lost to just three other teams this week.
  • Chiefs Maniac would be 2-4 if they played the same schedule as Go Long Chong.
  • Chiefs Maniac would be 37-38-2 if they played every team every week.

Game Notes

  • Chiefs Maniac has underachieved for four straight weeks, having scored 223 points against a projected 228.92 this week.
  • Go Long Chong topped their point expectations for the third week in a row. They have now overperformed versus projections for the fifth time.
  • In the loss, Aaron Rodgers led the league in scoring and had the eighth-most points in the league this season with 108.

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.
