Smooth Moves by Joseph's Team

  • Even if you cried trying to win, you still won. And the Toyota Hall of Fame is proud of Joseph's Team either way.
  • Just call him Fred Flintstone, because he was toting the rock all day long. Jordan Howard had 26.20 points, the highest RB score of the week and the 10th-highest RB score in the league this season.
  • Melvin Gordon put the team on his back with 15.50 points, the sixth-highest score among RBs in the league this week.
  • With 12.50 points, Jordan Matthews ranked sixth in the league in scoring among WRs this week.
  • 6 of 9 players in the starting lineup for Joseph's Team topped their projected points.

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 the New York Jets Defense, which then scored below their 6.66-point projection with 4.00 points.
  • The RBs on 7One6 Buffalo let them down, getting outgunned by the RBs on Joseph's Team 41.70 - 18.50.
  • It's times like these when it's important to support your players when they're down. So move the mouse pointer away from the DROP button. Spencer Ware scored a season-low 4.70 points, 33.1% of his projected 14.18, which is his lowest percentage of the year.
  • After a season-low 3.30 points against a projected 9.03, Marvin Jones Jr. has scored below his projection in five straight games.

  • Joseph's Team would be 3-4 if they played the same schedule as 7One6 Buffalo.
  • If Joseph's Team had played every team in the league each week, they would be 35-37.
  • 7One6 Buffalo would have lost to four other teams besides Joseph's Team this week.
  • Timing really is everything. Joseph's Team would have lost to 7One6 Buffalo 108.02 - 73.14 had they played each other last week.
  • 7One6 Buffalo would be 4-3 if they played the same schedule as Joseph's Team.
  • If they played every team every week, 7One6 Buffalo would be 47-25.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 8

Sterling Sharpe GB - WR 1993 vs. Tampa Bay 10 Catches, 147 yards, 4 touchdowns In his seven-year career with the Packers, Sharpe had plenty of big games, but none was better than his Week 8 effort against the Buccaneers in ’93.

In the midst of a season in which he would total a career-high 112 catches, Sharpe pulled in 10 passes against Tampa Bay, four of them culminating in the end zone. Those scores along with 147 receiving yards amounted to Sharpe’s best fantasy effort of his career, and the best fantasy tally by a WR in Week 8 since the AFL-NFL merger.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
