Smooth Moves by Team BLT

  • Outscoring your opponent is a sure-fire way to win each week. You can thank the Toyota Hall of Fame for that valuable insight.
  • You see what happens when you keep the laces out? Dan Bailey scored 13 points, the highest K score in the league this week.
  • We won't judge you if you want to bow to Cam Newton. He ranked 10th in the league in scoring with 31 points.
  • Sat Sterling Shepard, who scored fewer points than any WR in the starting lineup with 6.
  • The 18 points scored by Randall Cobb was the seventh-highest score by a WR in the league this week.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Next week, be sure to ask Team BLT where official Toyota Hall of Fame articles are kept.
  • 8 of the 10 starters scored less than their projected points.
  • The laces were in for Team D, who was outscored by Team BLT at the K position, 13 - 5.
  • With 2 points, Travis Benjamin had his lowest output of the season and tallied just 16.4% of his 12.21 projected points, his lowest percentage of the year.
  • The 18 points scored by Le'Veon Bell was a season-low for both scoring and for his performance against projections. He reached only 66.7% of his 26.98 projected points this week.

What If

  • If Team BLT played Team D every week, they'd be 5-1 this season.
  • Team BLT would have beaten only two other teams besides Team D this week.
  • Had they played each other last week, Team BLT would have defeated Team D 149 - 144.
  • Team BLT would be 2-3 if they played the same schedule as Team D.
  • If Team BLT had played every team in the league each week, they would be 32-22.
  • Team D would have lost to six other teams besides Team BLT this week.
  • Team D would be 2-3 if they played the same schedule as Team BLT.
  • If they played every team every week, Team D would be 14-39-1.

Game Notes

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.
