Smooth Moves by Riga Reapers

  • Reading this matchup recap is indicative of potential Toyota Hall of Famers. You're making Riga Reapers look really good right now.
  • Just call him Fred Flintstone, because he was toting the rock all day long. DeMarco Murray had 23.90 points, the highest RB score of the week and the ninth-highest RB score in the league this season.
  • Jordan Howard, who was picked up by Riga Reapers, scored 14.20 points against a projected 10.95, topping his projection by 29.7%.
  • Do you put a LB or DB on him? You might have to put both on him if this continues. Zach Miller scored 9.10 points to rank fifth among TEs in the league this week.
  • With 10.00 points, the Pittsburgh Steelers Defense had their highest output of the season and beat their projected point total by a season-high 29.2%.

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.
  • The RBs for The Commissionators got outscored 48.50 - 10.00 by the RBs for Riga Reapers.
  • The Commissionators tried to fight through 2 of their 7 starters getting zeros, but could not overcome it.
  • Gotta hit rock button before you can start to rise. It was a season-low 5.80 points for LeGarrette Blount this week. It was also a season-low for his performance versus projections, reaching only 47.2% of a projected point total of 12.28.
  • Giovani Bernard was last on the team in scoring with 4.20 points against a projected 9.97 and underachieved for the third time this season.

What If

  • If Riga Reapers played The Commissionators every week, they would be 4-0 this season.

  • Had they played each other last week, Riga Reapers would have defeated The Commissionators 94.62 - 86.96.
  • Riga Reapers would be 1-2 if they played the same schedule as The Commissionators.
  • Riga Reapers would be 20-16 if they played every team every week.

  • The Commissionators would be 1-2 if they played the same schedule as Riga Reapers.

Game Notes

  • With 52.88 points, The Commissionators scored the fewest points in the league this week and had the lowest score of any team this season.
  • Riga Reapers has underachieved for three straight weeks, having scored 100.54 points against a projected 102.51 this week.

  • The Commissionators got their lowest combined scoring output from the RB position this season with only 10.00 points this week.
  • Not going to name names, but some people here aren't pulling their weight. Forget it, Brandin Cooks needs to step it up! He scored 3.10 points against a projected 10.74 in the win, and has now scored below his projection in three straight games.
  • Just because Robert Horry has seven NBA championship rings, doesn't mean he's one of the greats. Despite being on the winning team, Chris Boswell scored 5.00 points against a projected 9.90 and has now underachieved in three straight games.
  • With a record of 0-2, The Commissionators is winless in blowout matchups.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 4

Anthony Allen Was - WR 1987 vs. St. Louis 7 Catches, 255 yards, 3 touchdowns To say that Allen’s Week 4 performance in ’87 stands out in his NFL career would be a major understatement.

In what was the first of three games played that season with replacement players due to a player’s strike, Allen took advantage of his moment in the spotlight (and the Cardinals scab secondary) to the tune of 255 receiving yards and three touchdowns. He set the Washington franchise record for receiving yards, which still stands today. In total, Allen played parts of just five NFL seasons - including just those three strike games in ’87 – amassing a total of 767 receiving yards, a third of which came in this Week 4 contest.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
