Smooth Moves by McDreamin'

  • McDreamin' scored massive brownie points with the Toyota Hall of Fame this week. Too bad brownie points don't count as real points. Not that you need help.
  • With 28.60 points against a projected 17.37, Marcus Mariota ranked ninth in the league in scoring and has now overachieved in three straight games.
  • Doug Baldwin beat his scoring projection by a season-high 120.2% to rank fifth in the league in scoring.
  • The 25.30 points scored by Larry Fitzgerald was the seventh-highest score by a WR in the league this week.
  • With 8.50 points scored versus a projected 3.65, Blake Martinez scored more points than projected for five straight games.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Funny, the Hall provides articles you could have studied. But instead you watched RobertSniffin'DaTurd cry trying.
  • RobertSniffin'DaTurd left the 17.20 points scored by Martellus Bennett on the bench this week. He beat his projected point total by 151.8%, the fourth-highest percentage in the league.
  • Whoever gave you this advice, you might want to lose their number. Picked up and started Jonathan Casillas, who then scored below his 9.21-point projection with 5.50 points.
  • Michael Thomas was last on the team in scoring with 4.00 points, 34.1% of his projected 11.73, which is his lowest percentage of the season.
  • It's tough to win when your team leader gets embarrassed like this. At the QB position, RobertSniffin'DaTurd got outscored 28.60 - 13.68 by McDreamin'.

  • RobertSniffin'DaTurd would be 5-4 if they played the same schedule as McDreamin'.
  • If they played every team every week, RobertSniffin'DaTurd would be 65-45.

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.
