Smooth Moves by Joseph's Team

  • 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.
  • Melvin Gordon had the 14th-most points in the league this season with 30.10, leading the league in points for the week.
  • Took Jesse James out of the starting lineup, who scored 1.80 points on the bench, fewer than the starting TE.
  • Joseph's Team was still able to pull out a win with only 2 of their 9 starters exceeding their projected points.
  • With 5.50 points, Kyle Rudolph ranked fifth in the league this week in scoring among TEs.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • 73.14 seems a lot higher when you're on the losing side of it. And the Toyota Hall of Fame knows you know that.
  • A heated blanket would be a great gift for Doug Baldwin during this cold streak. He scored below his projection in three straight games after scoring 6.90 points against a projected 8.87 this week.
  • Anthony's Team was faced with 2 starters coming up empty in points.
  • Anthony's Team would have welcomed more points at WR, where Joseph's Team topped them 17.70 - 7.80.
  • The 0.90 points scored by Jordy Nelson was a season-low. He had a projected 10.11-point total, and has now underachieved in three straight games.

What If

  • If Joseph's Team played Anthony's Team every week, they would be 6-1 this season.
  • Joseph's Team would have beaten only two other teams besides Anthony's Team this week.
  • Were they resting their players for this week? Joseph's Team would have defeated Anthony's Team 101.26 - 83.76 had they played each other last week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Anthony's Team, Joseph's Team would be 3-3.
  • Joseph's Team would be 28-35 if they played every team every week.
  • Anthony's Team would have lost to seven other teams besides Joseph's Team this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Joseph's Team, Anthony's Team would be 1-5.
  • If they played every team every week, Anthony's Team would be 20-43.

Game Notes

  • Joseph's Team put up their smallest winning point total of the year.
  • Anthony's Team scored 68.24 points and lost. It is their highest losing score of the season.
  • Joseph's Team was able to win with little help from Jordan Matthews, who had a season-low 1.00 point and is on a five-week underperforming streak.
  • The 4.90-point margin of victory was the smallest in the league this week.
  • Just because Robert Horry has seven NBA championship rings, doesn't mean he's one of the greats. Despite being on the winning team, the Los Angeles Rams Defense scored 6.00 points against a projected 7.58 and has now underachieved in three straight games.
  • Joseph's Team won even though Anthony's Team performed better against their scoring projection. Anthony's Team scored 85.8% of their 79.52 projected points, while Joseph's Team recorded 79.0% of their 92.61-point projection.
  • Joseph's Team has now won four straight games.
  • The draft continues to pay off for Joseph's Team, which got 89.5% of their points from players they drafted.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 7

Shannon Sharpe Den - TE 2002 vs. Kansas City 12 Catches, 214 yards, 2 touchdowns In a career that included eight Pro Bowls and a seven top 2 finishes at the TE position in fantasy scoring, Sharpe was never better than his 214-yard, two-TD performance against the division-rival Chiefs in Week 7 of 2002.

In fact, no tight end has ever had a better week since the AFL-NFL merger in 1970. Sharpe still stands as the only tight end to tally 200-plus receiving yards in a game and his PPR-popping 12 catches is a total that has only been reached 17 times by a TE since the merger.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
