This week's win comes with a nice little bonus for Kyle's Optimal Team (5-1, 619.44 points), who claims first place after stomping Bombers (fifth place, 3-3, 533.62 points) 123.20 to 68.86. They also got the highest point total in the league this week. This was a blockbuster of a beatdown, with the 54.34-point margin of victory being the fifth-highest recorded in the league this season. Free fallin' like Tom Petty, Bombers suffered a significant drop in scoring from last week's 108.30 to 53.00 win against Team RAMROD.

Smooth Moves by Kyle's Optimal Team

  • If this were a dream sequence, you'd hear a deep voice announce, "Kyle's Optimal Team, the Toyota Hall of Famer." But it's not.
  • This one goes on the highlight reel at the end of the season. Drew Brees scored 33.60 points, the highest of any player on Kyle's Optimal Team this season.
  • Lamar Miller didn't have the best score of the week, but there ain't no shame in his game. He had 29.80 points, the third-highest RB score of the week and the fourth-highest RB score in the league this season.
  • When is LeSean McCoy going to get some respect from the projections? He ranked second in the league in scoring with 32.20 points against a projected 16.42 and has now overachieved in four straight games.
  • Wisely sat Derek Carr this week, who had 10.80 points, the lowest QB score on the team.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Somehow, all of your players had two bye weeks this week. The Toyota Hall of Fame calls that a bye bye week. Yes, it's a bad joke, but it's still better than your score.
  • Missed an opportunity by leaving Cam Newton on the bench. He scored 27.98 points, the eighth-highest score in the league this week.
  • Did not start the Kansas City Chiefs Defense, which scored 10.00 points and beat their projected point total by a team-leading 55.0%.
  • 8 of the 9 starters scored less than their projected points.
  • The RBs on Bombers let them down, getting outgunned by the RBs on Kyle's Optimal Team 62.00 - 22.50.

What If

  • If Kyle's Optimal Team played Bombers every week, they'd be 4-2 this year.
  • Kyle's Optimal Team would've been undefeated if they played every team in the league this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Bombers, Kyle's Optimal Team would be 5-0.
  • Kyle's Optimal Team would be 39-15 if they played every team every week.
  • Bombers would have lost to six other teams besides Kyle's Optimal Team this week.
  • Timing really is everything. Kyle's Optimal Team would have lost to Bombers 108.30 - 77.08 had they played each other last week.
  • Bombers would be 5-0 if they played the same schedule as Kyle's Optimal Team.
  • Bombers would be 26-28 if they played every team every week.

Game Notes

  • Three of the starters for Kyle's Optimal Team scored higher than the leading scorer for Bombers.
  • It was the fifth-biggest margin of victory in the league this season at 54.34 points.
  • The 123.20 points scored by Kyle's Optimal Team was the highest in the league this week and the seventh-highest in the league this season.

  • Kyle's Optimal Team was able to win with little help from Zach Ertz, who had a season-low 2.20 points and is on a three-week underperforming streak.
  • Although Kyle's Optimal Team won, it was no thanks to Jeremy Maclin, who scored 4.90 points and has now scored below his projection in four straight weeks.
  • Just because Robert Horry has seven NBA championship rings, doesn't mean he's one of the greats. Despite being on the winning team, Justin Tucker scored 11.00 points against a projected 13.86 and has now underachieved in three straight games.
  • They may need to check dentals records to identify this victim. Bombers had their worst loss of the season, losing by 54.34 points.

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.
