Brain Damage, down 27.06 on Monday night, gave SMF a glimmer of hope, then ripped it away and defeated SMF 135.38 to 125.14. Brain Damage picked up 27.40 points from Delanie Walker and 26.70 from Odell Beckham Jr. It takes a true veteran to maintain focus throughout a season. Brain Damage is whatever the opposite of that is, having dropped their last eight. SMF couldn't capitalize on an increase in scoring compared to last week's 117.18 to 95.76 loss against BaDa Bing BaDa Bloom. Brain Damage showed some mercy in the win, starting a player with zero points (Reggie Nelson). Brain Damage (6-4, 1,301.30 points) remains in sixth place and SMF (1-9, 1,212.88 points) is still looking up at everyone from the cellar.

Smooth Moves by Brain Damage

  • Even if you cried trying to win, you still won. And the Toyota Hall of Fame is proud of Brain Damage either way.
  • Delanie Walker had 27.40 points, the highest TE score of the week and the sixth-highest TE score in the league this season.
  • Made the right move in benching Cole Beasley, who had 8.30 points, the lowest total of any starting WR on Brain Damage.
  • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just Odell Beckham Jr. posterizing opponents. He had the sixth-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 26.70 points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Some teams are destined to beat teams like SMF and move on to Toyota Hall of Fame greatness. Ironically, you are included in that destiny, because you played yourself.
  • Lavonte David was last in the matchup in scoring with 2.00 points against a projected 10.26 and has now underachieved in three straight games.
  • Did not start Ryan Tannehill, who led the team in scoring with 19.20 points.
  • This is how people lose everything in casinos. SMF thought their luck would change and went back to the well with the New England Patriots Defense. However, they scored 4.00 points against a projected 8.50 and has now underachieved in four straight games.
  • Terrance West has now failed to reach his projection for three straight games. This week he scored 8.70 points versus a projected 12.47.

What If

  • If Brain Damage played SMF every week, they would be 6-4 this season.
  • Brain Damage would have beaten five other teams besides SMF this week.
  • Had they played each other last week, Brain Damage would have defeated SMF 151.64 - 95.76.
  • Brain Damage would be 3-6 if they played the same schedule as SMF.
  • If Brain Damage had played every team in the league each week, they would be 56-54.

  • If they played every team every week, SMF would be 42-68.

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.
