Coynage got 31.98 points from Cam Newton and 19.84 from Terrelle Pryor Sr. to sneak by UNDERDOG 107.92 to 106.90. It was extremely close, and the 1.02-point margin of victory was the third-smallest recorded in the league this season. UNDERDOG couldn't capitalize on an improvement in scoring compared to last week's 137.26 to 78.20 loss against Davis. The outcome could have gone the other way, UNDERDOG had a starter score zero points (Jordan Reed). Coynage (4-2, 603.90 points) climbs into third place while UNDERDOG (3-3, 663.86 points) drops to fifth place.

Smooth Moves by Coynage

  • Reading this matchup recap is indicative of potential Toyota Hall of Famers. You're making Coynage look really good right now.
  • If this was college, Cam Newton would expect to get a sleeve of helmet stickers. He ranked eighth in the league in scoring this week with 31.98 points. It was also the second-highest score of any player on Coynage this season.
  • Made the right move in benching Sterling Shepard, who had 2.50 points, the lowest total of any starting WR on Coynage.
  • Benched Carson Wentz, who had the lowest QB score on the team with 7.36 points.
  • With 19.84 points, Terrelle Pryor Sr. ranked fourth in the league in scoring among WRs this week.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Some teams are destined to beat teams like UNDERDOG and move on to Toyota Hall of Fame greatness. Ironically, you are included in that destiny, because you played yourself.
  • Demaryius Thomas was last in the matchup in scoring and achieved only 15.4% of his projected point total, his lowest percentage of the season.
  • It's times like these when it's important to support your players when they're down. So move the mouse pointer away from the DROP button. Melvin Gordon scored a season-low 9.40 points, 75.7% of his projected 12.41, which is his lowest percentage of the year.
  • Of the 9 starters on UNDERDOG, 5 underperformed versus their projections.
  • Left Jordan Reed in the starting lineup and he scored 0 points.

What If

  • If Coynage played UNDERDOG every week, they'd be 3-3 this year.
  • Besides UNDERDOG, Coynage would have defeated six other teams this week.
  • Were they resting their players for this week? Coynage would have defeated UNDERDOG 101.82 - 78.20 had they played each other last week.
  • Coynage would be 3-2 if they played the same schedule as UNDERDOG.
  • If Coynage had played every team in the league each week, they would be 31-23.
  • In addition to Coynage, UNDERDOG would have lost to just two other teams this week.
  • UNDERDOG would be 3-2 if they played the same schedule as Coynage.
  • If they played every team every week, UNDERDOG would be 35-19.

Game Notes

  • Maybe the league is colluding against them. All three of the losses for UNDERDOG this season have come when their opponent scores higher than their season average.
  • It was a tough loss for UNDERDOG, which put up the third-biggest score for a losing team in the league this season.
  • In the loss, Drew Brees led the league in scoring and had the fourth-most points in the league this season with 41.60.
  • Despite being on the winning team, Jason Witten scored 4.20 points against a projected 5.74 and has now underachieved in every game this season.
  • With a combined 37.64 points from their WRs, Coynage got their highest combined scoring output from the WR position this season.
  • At 1.02 points, the margin of victory was the tightest of the week.
  • Not going to name names, but some people here aren't pulling their weight. Forget it, Jeremy Maclin needs to step it up! He scored 4.90 points against a projected 11.49 in the win, and has now scored below his projection in four straight games.
  • Although Coynage won, it was no thanks to Justin Tucker, who scored 11.00 points and has now scored below his projection in three straight weeks.

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.
