  • Weekly Grade

Facing an 11.00-point deficit on Monday night, Cobras scored 21.00 and edged xprtrpr 180.00 to 177.00. They also claimed the highest score this week. These two teams are tied for sixth place with 3-3 records, but it doesn't tell the whole story, as xprtrpr has a clear points lead, 1,017.00 to 895.50. This one just as easily could have been decided by a coin flip. The 3.00-point margin of victory was the third-smallest in the league this season.

Smooth Moves by Cobras

  • Even if you cried trying to win, you still won. And the Toyota Hall of Fame is proud of Cobras either way.
  • Even the Wright brothers would be proud of this aerial performance. Odell Beckham Jr. had 42.00 points, the highest WR score of the week and the second-highest WR score in the league this season.
  • The 13.00 points scored by Josh Lambo was the highest K score of the week and is the fourth-highest K score in the league this season.
  • James White put the team on his back with 25.00 points, the fifth-highest score among RBs in the league this week.
  • Zach Brown scored 10.00 points against a projected 6.64 and has now overachieved in three straight games.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Some teams are destined to beat teams like xprtrpr and move on to Toyota Hall of Fame greatness. Ironically, you are included in that destiny, because you played yourself.
  • Left Golden Tate on the bench, where he scored 30.00 points and surpassed his scoring projection by 129.4%, the highest percentage of any player on the team.
  • The 9.00 points scored by Alec Ogletree fell short of his 16.22-point projection, the third straight game where that has happened.
  • The 9.00 points scored by Marvin Jones Jr. was a season-low. He had a projected 16.39-point total, and has now underachieved in three straight games.
  • Note to self: don't start a player when they're going to have their worst game of the season. Devonta Freeman had a season-low 8.00 points against a projected 10.78 and underachieved for the third time this season.

What If

  • If Cobras played xprtrpr every week, they would be 2-4 this season.
  • Cobras would have beaten every other team in the league this week.
  • Cobras would be 2-3 if they played the same schedule as xprtrpr.
  • If Cobras had played every team in the league each week, they would be 22-32.
  • xprtrpr would have beaten every other team in the league besides Cobras this week.
  • And they say procrastination doesn't pay off! Had they played each other last week, Cobras would have lost to xprtrpr 171.50 - 123.00.
  • xprtrpr would be 3-2 if they played the same schedule as Cobras.
  • If they played every team every week, xprtrpr would be 35-19.

Game Notes

  • All three of the losses for xprtrpr this season have come when their opponent had their highest-scoring week of the season.
  • This matchup featured the two highest-scoring teams in the league this week.
  • Although xprtrpr lost, they did put up the second-highest score for a losing team in the league this season.
  • Jeremy Maclin had a season-low 7.00 points against a projected 17.05 in the win and has now scored below his projection in four straight games.
  • This must be how Jay Leno feels with a garage full of high performance cars. xprtrpr got a combined 50.00 points from their RBs, their highest combined scoring output from the RB position this season.
  • The 3.00-point margin of victory was the smallest in the league this week.
  • The WRs on Cobras collectively had their best week of the season with 61.00 points.
  • Just because Robert Horry has seven NBA championship rings, doesn't mean he's one of the greats. Despite being on the winning team, Carson Palmer scored 16.00 points against a projected 26.66 and has now underachieved in three straight games.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 6

LaDainian Tomlinson SD - RB 2005 vs. Oakland 179 yards from scrimmage, 1 TD rush, 1 TD reception, 1 TD pass In his Week 6 contest against the Raiders in ’05, Tomlinson became just the seventh player in NFL history to throw for a TD, run for a TD and catch a TD pass in the same game.

And, while his effort stands as a great testament to LT’s all-around skills, it goes down as just the eighth-best fantasy performance by a running back since the AFL-NFL merger. In fact, Tomlinson managed to one-up himself in Week 6 in each of the following two seasons, rolling up 135 total yards and four scores against San Francisco in ’06, and 214 total yards and four touchdowns against Oakland (again) in ’07 – which stands as the top Week 6 RB fantasy performance.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
