Smooth Moves by Brain Damage

  • If this were a dream sequence, you'd hear a deep voice announce, "Brain Damage, the Toyota Hall of Famer." But it's not.
  • Odell Beckham Jr. scored the most points of any player on Brain Damage this season with 40.20.
  • What do Apache helicopters, F-117 Nighthawks and Cole Beasley have in common? They are all dangerous aerial weapons. He ranked sixth in the league in scoring among WRs this week with 23.80 points.
  • Eli Manning scored a season-high 26.12 points and beat his scoring projection by a season-high 66.1%.
  • With 16.30 points, Alshon Jeffery had his highest output of the season.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Some teams are destined to beat teams like McDreamin' and move on to Toyota Hall of Fame greatness. Ironically, you are included in that destiny, because you played yourself.
  • Did not start Marcus Mariota, who led the team in scoring with 28.76 points.
  • McDreamin' would have welcomed more points at WR, where Brain Damage topped them 80.30 - 27.40.
  • 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. T.J. Yeldon scored a season-low 3.60 points, 33.4% of his projected 10.78, which is his lowest percentage of the year.
  • You've gotta hit rock button before you can start to rise. It was a season-low 10.90 points for Larry Fitzgerald this week. It was also a season-low for his performance versus projections, reaching only 60.5% of a projected point total of 18.02.

What If

  • If Brain Damage played McDreamin' every week, they would be 3-3 this season.
  • Besides McDreamin', Brain Damage would have defeated eight other teams this week.
  • Brain Damage would be 1-4 if they played the same schedule as McDreamin'.
  • If Brain Damage had played every team in the league each week, they would be 29-37.
  • Besides Brain Damage, McDreamin' would have been defeated by five other teams this week.
  • Timing really is everything. Brain Damage would have lost to McDreamin' 139.28 - 123.36 had they played each other last week.
  • McDreamin' would be 1-4 if they played the same schedule as Brain Damage.
  • If they played every team every week, McDreamin' would be 31-35.

Game Notes

  • Three of the four losses for McDreamin' this season have come when their opponent had their highest-scoring week of the season.
  • McDreamin' topped their point expectations for the third week in a row. They have now overperformed versus projections for the fourth time.
  • Hey, I'm sure Brain Damage appreciates the tough competition. In the loss, McDreamin' had the 10th-highest losing score in the league this season with 125.68 points.
  • The 18.24-point win by Brain Damage beat the 0.23-point spread.
  • Matt Forte had a season-low 3.20 points against a projected 13.81 in the win and has now scored below his projection in four straight games.
  • With 143.92 points, Brain Damage had their highest score so far this season.
  • We don't condone cheating, but this group of wide receivers might want to spray Stickum on their gloves. The 27.40 total points by the WRs on McDreamin' was their lowest WR output this season.
  • The 80.30 points by the WRs on Brain Damage was the season-high for combined points from the position.

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.
