Smooth Moves by Go Bears!

  • 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.
  • If this was college, David Johnson would expect to get a sleeve of helmet stickers. He ranked fourth in the league in scoring this week with 34 points. It was also the fourth-highest score of any player on Go Bears! this season.
  • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just Terrelle Pryor Sr. posterizing opponents. He had the fourth-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 28 points.
  • What do Apache helicopters, F-117 Nighthawks and Amari Cooper have in common? They are all dangerous aerial weapons. He ranked sixth in the league in scoring among WRs this week with 22 points.
  • By scoring 28 points, Matt Ryan beat his 20.54 projected points by 36.3%.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • The fact that you're reading this means you have internet connection. Unfortunately, that's one less thing to blame your loss on. Don't tell the Hall.
  • Did not start DeSean Jackson, who underachieved but still scored more than any WR on the team with 9 points against a projected 11.00.
  • Matt Forte was last on the team in scoring with 2 points against a projected 13.08 and has now underachieved in four straight games.
  • Julian Edelman has scored below his projection in every game this season after scoring 7 points against a projected 13.67 this week.
  • This is how people lose everything in casinos. MR. MCGIBBLETS thought their luck would change and went back to the well with Chandler Catanzaro. However, he scored 4 points against a projected 9.17 and has now underachieved in four straight games.

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.
