Smooth Moves by Ben's Boss Team

  • Outscoring your opponent is a sure-fire way to win each week. You can thank the Toyota Hall of Fame for that valuable insight.
  • With 23.90 points, Doug Baldwin had the highest score of any WR in the league this week.
  • We won't judge you if you want to bow to Philip Rivers. He ranked ninth in the league in scoring with 27.04 points.
  • Jeremy Hill put the team on his back with 10.60 points, the 10th-highest score among RBs in the league this week.
  • Even with a zero from starter Sammie Coates, Ben's Boss Team was still able to win.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Sometimes 70.34 is enough. Unfortunately, the Toyota Hall of Fame has confirmed this time it's a smaller number than 90.54.
  • Did not start Kirk Cousins, who led the team in scoring with 22.38 points.
  • Whoever gave you this advice, you might want to lose their number. Picked up and started Corey Coleman, who then scored below his 7.67-point projection with 1.70 points.
  • 7 of the starters on Matthew Buckman underperformed versus their projections.
  • This is how people lose everything in casinos. Matthew Buckman thought their luck would change and went back to the well with the Arizona Cardinals Defense. However, they scored 6.00 points against a projected 9.34 and has now underachieved in three straight games.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 10

Marshawn Lynch Sea - RB 2014 vs. New York Giants 21 Carries, 140 yards, 4 touchdowns Beast Mode had many memorable games as a member of the Seahawks, but none packed a bigger fantasy punch than his Week 10 bulldozing job against the Giants in ’14.

Against the G-men, Lynch punched in four of Seattle’s five touchdowns, and might have scored all five TDs had QB Russell Wilson not called his own number on a one-yard score late in the contest. In addition to his end-zone parade, Lynch rolled for 140 yards on the ground en route to delivering the best Week 10 fantasy performance by a running back 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.
