Anthony's Team got 31.80 points from David Johnson and 19.60 from Coby Fleener to beat Space Ghost 83.76 to 70.12. Anthony's Team came into the Monday night game facing a 2.74-point deficit, but scored 31.80, picking up an unlikely win as a 14.48-point underdog. At this point, Space Ghost might have a better shot at getting Chic-Fil-a on Sunday than having success at fantasy football, as they've now lost five in a row. Space Ghost, coming off a 104.02 to 99.26 loss against Joseph's Team, saw their scoring drop substantially this week. The margin could have been larger, Anthony's Team had two starters score zero points. Space Ghost (1-5, 505.78 points) sinks into last place and Anthony's Team (3-3, 492.70 points) remains in seventh place.

Smooth Moves by Anthony's Team

  • If this were a dream sequence, you'd hear a deep voice announce, "Anthony's Team, the Toyota Hall of Famer." But it's not.
  • David Johnson didn't have the best score of the week, but there ain't no shame in his game. He had 31.80 points, the second-highest RB score of the week and the second-highest RB score in the league this season.
  • With 19.60 points, Coby Fleener had the second-highest TE score of the week and the fourth-best TE score in the league this season.
  • Anthony's Team won despite having only 2 of their 9 starters exceed their projected points.
  • Even with two starters scoring zero points, Anthony's Team was still able to win.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • It's okay to regret not taking a sick day to study the Toyota Hall of Fame's articles. But it's not okay to do it again.
  • Whoever gave you this advice, you might want to lose their number. Picked up and started Tyrell Williams, who then scored below his 7.55-point projection with 2.80 points.
  • 7 of the starters on Space Ghost underperformed versus their projections.
  • The 12.42 points scored by Carson Palmer fell short of his 20.80-point projection, the third straight game where that has happened.
  • This is how people lose everything in casinos. Space Ghost thought their luck would change and went back to the well with Eddie Lacy. However, he scored 7.10 points against a projected 14.32 and has now underachieved in five straight games.

What If

  • If Anthony's Team played Space Ghost every week, they'd be 2-4 this year.
  • Anthony's Team would have beaten five other teams besides Space Ghost this week.
  • Anthony's Team would be 2-3 if they played the same schedule as Space Ghost.
  • If Anthony's Team had played every team in the league each week, they would be 19-35.
  • Besides Anthony's Team, Space Ghost would have been defeated by five other teams this week.
  • And they say procrastination doesn't pay off! Had they played each other last week, Anthony's Team would have lost to Space Ghost 99.26 - 68.16.
  • If they played the same schedule as Anthony's Team, Space Ghost would be 2-3.
  • If they played every team every week, Space Ghost would be 22-32.

  • Maybe the league is colluding against them. All five of the losses for Space Ghost this season have come when their opponent scores higher than their season average.
  • Anthony's Team put up their smallest winning point total of the year.
  • The loss is the fifth straight for Space Ghost and extends the longest current losing streak in the league.

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.
