Ben's Boss Team must have done something to anger the Fantasy Gods this week, as they lost to Davis 76.90 to 58.46. Davis is now coming out on top with regularity and is on a four-game win streak. Free fallin' like Tom Petty, Ben's Boss Team suffered a significant drop in scoring from last week's 103.70 to 62.56 win against jay's Superb Team. On top of the loss, Ben's Boss Team had a starter score zero points (the Los Angeles Rams Defense). Davis (4-2, 611.20 points) climbs into second place and Ben's Boss Team (2-4, 532.44 points) sinks into eighth place.

Smooth Moves by Davis

  • If this were a dream sequence, you'd hear a deep voice announce, "Davis, the Toyota Hall of Famer." But it's not.
  • Made the right move in benching Travis Benjamin, who had -0.30 points, the lowest total of any starting WR on Davis.
  • Took Andy Dalton out of the starting lineup, who scored 23.86 points on the bench, fewer than the starting QB.
  • Matt Ryan led the matchup in scoring with 28.60 points, the third-highest score of any player on Davis this season.
  • Davis won despite having only 2 of their 9 starters exceed their projected points.

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.
  • Whoever gave you this advice, you might want to lose their number. Picked up and started T.J. Yeldon, who then scored below his 8.10-point projection with 2.60 points.
  • 8 of the starters on Ben's Boss Team underperformed versus their projections.
  • With 4.10 points against a projected 6.30, Jeremy Hill did not meet his projection for the third straight game.
  • Ben's Boss Team needed more points from the QB position, where Davis beat them 28.60 - 13.56.

What If

  • If Davis played Ben's Boss Team every week, they'd be 4-2 this year.
  • Davis would have beaten three other teams besides Ben's Boss Team this week.
  • Had they played each other last week, Davis would have defeated Ben's Boss Team 137.26 - 103.70.
  • Davis would be 4-1 if they played the same schedule as Ben's Boss Team.
  • If Davis had played every team in the league each week, they would be 30-24.
  • Ben's Boss Team would have been beaten by every other team in the league this week.
  • Ben's Boss Team would be 3-2 if they played the same schedule as Davis.
  • If they played every team every week, Ben's Boss Team would be 22-32.

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.
