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.
  • Not the best, but in the conversation. Mike Evans ranked fourth in the league in scoring this week with 29.60 points. It was also the fourth-highest score of any player on Brain Damage this season.
  • Matt Forte beat his scoring projection by a season-high 156.8% to rank fifth in the league in scoring.
  • Wisely sat Eli Manning this week, who had 7.64 points, the lowest QB score on the team.
  • With 21.40 points, Delanie Walker ranked second in the league this week in scoring among TEs.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Sometimes 122.40 is enough. Unfortunately, the Toyota Hall of Fame has confirmed this time it's a smaller number than 144.16.
  • Did not start the New York Giants Defense, which scored 21.00 points, surpassing their projected points by 250.6%, the third-highest percentage in the league.
  • Could have started Matthew Stafford, who underachieved, but still had more points than the starting QB with 17.84 against a projected 18.34.
  • With 4.00 points against a projected 14.63, Jordan Matthews was last on the team in scoring and has now scored below his projection in five straight games.
  • Odies orphans picked up Mike Davis, who then fell short of his 16.35-point projection by scoring 8.10 points.

What If

  • If Brain Damage played Odies orphans every week, they'd be 3-4 this year.
  • Besides Odies orphans, Brain Damage would have defeated eight other teams this week.
  • Were they resting their players for this week? Brain Damage would have defeated Odies orphans 143.92 - 102.30 had they played each other last week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Odies orphans, Brain Damage would be 4-2.
  • If Brain Damage had played every team in the league each week, they would be 38-39.
  • Odies orphans would have lost to four other teams besides Brain Damage this week.
  • Odies orphans would be 2-4 if they played the same schedule as Brain Damage.
  • If they played every team every week, Odies orphans would be 44-33.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 7

Shannon Sharpe Den - TE 2002 vs. Kansas City 12 Catches, 214 yards, 2 touchdowns In a career that included eight Pro Bowls and a seven top 2 finishes at the TE position in fantasy scoring, Sharpe was never better than his 214-yard, two-TD performance against the division-rival Chiefs in Week 7 of 2002.

In fact, no tight end has ever had a better week since the AFL-NFL merger in 1970. Sharpe still stands as the only tight end to tally 200-plus receiving yards in a game and his PPR-popping 12 catches is a total that has only been reached 17 times by a TE since the merger.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
