Smooth Moves by Metalwars

  • Fantasy Football is a game where the high score wins. So keep doing what you have to do, the Toyota Hall of Fame will turn a blind eye.
  • Not the best, but in the conversation. Tom Brady ranked fifth in the league in scoring this week with 100 points. It was also the third-highest score of any player on Metalwars this season.
  • Devontae Booker, who was picked up by Metalwars, scored 42 points against a projected 32.60, topping his projection by 28.8%.
  • Put WR John Brown on the bench, where he scored 18 points, fewer than any WR in the starting lineup.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • 2 of the 10 starters scored zero points for Chiefs Maniac.

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.
