Smooth Moves by Mr Peanutbutter

  • 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.
  • Made the right move in benching Victor Cruz, who had 6 points, the lowest total of any starting WR on Mr Peanutbutter.
  • What do Apache helicopters, F-117 Nighthawks and Brandin Cooks have in common? They are all dangerous aerial weapons. He ranked second in the league in scoring among WRs this week with 30 points.
  • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just Julio Jones posterizing opponents. He had the fifth-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 26 points.
  • The 19 points scored by Matt Jones was the eighth-highest score of any RB in the league this week.

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.
  • Left Jay Ajayi on the bench, where he exceeded his scoring projection by a league-leading 1,420.7%.
  • The WR corps couldn't keep pace with their counterparts from Mr Peanutbutter and were outscored 63 - 29.
  • Justin Tucker has now failed to reach his projection for three straight games. This week he scored 11 points versus a projected 13.87.
  • The RBs for Football Ronin got outscored 31 - 15 by the RBs for Mr Peanutbutter.

What If

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.
