Smooth Moves by Hammerheads

  • 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.
  • With 33.00 points, Brandin Cooks ranked seventh in the league in scoring and beat his scoring projection by 117.2%, which was the highest percentage in the matchup.
  • Hammerheads appears to be some sort of fantasy prophet in the making. Dan Bailey, who was picked up by Hammerheads, scored 13.00 points against a projected 8.46, topping his projection by 53.7%.
  • The 31.00 points scored by Ben Roethlisberger was the fifth-highest score of any QB in the league this week.
  • The 22.00 points scored by David Johnson was the sixth-highest score of any RB in the league this week.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • The fact that you're reading this means you have internet connection. Unfortunately, that's one less thing to blame your loss on. Don't tell the Hall.
  • xprtrpr had 12 starters fail to reach their projections.
  • Ezekiel Ansah had the lowest point total in the matchup with 2.00 points.
  • It was not a good week for xprtrpr at TE, where they were beaten 11.00 - 4.00.
  • The 8.00 points scored by Devonta Freeman was just 50.6% of his 15.80-point projection.

What If

  • Hammerheads would've been undefeated if they played every team in the league this week.
  • Hammerheads would have had to score 44.01 fewer points to lose to all teams in the league this week.
  • Besides Hammerheads, xprtrpr would have been defeated by five other teams this week.
  • If xprtrpr had scored 30.01 fewer points, they would have lost to all teams in the league this week.

Game Notes

  • Andrew Luck played well in the loss, leading the league in scoring with 45.00 points.
  • Although xprtrpr lost, Alec Ogletree played well, bringing in 33.7% more points than was projected (14.00 points against a projected 10.47).
  • Although Hammerheads won, they got little help from Brandon Marshall, who only put up 6.00 points of a projected 17.23.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 1

Earnest Gray NYG - WR 1980 vs. St. Louis 9 Catches, 174 yards, 4 touchdowns A second-round pick by the Giants in 1979, Earnest Gray posted modest numbers in his rookie campaign, with just 28 catches, 537 yards and four total touchdowns.

So it was unexpected, to say the least, when he opened up his sophomore campaign with a 174-yard performance that included four touchdowns (matching his total from his entire first season). Gray would go on to finish '80 campaign with 10 touchdowns, but no other performance that season came close to what he did in the Week 1 opener, which stands as the greatest Week 1 fantasy effort by a wide receiver since the AFL/NFL merger in 1970.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
