Smooth Moves by Seattle Trenchers

  • Fantasy Football is a game where the high score wins. So keep doing what you have to do, the Toyota Hall of Fame will turn a blind eye.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • The fact that you're reading this means you have internet connection. Unfortunately, that's one less thing to blame your loss on. Don't tell the Hall.
  • This is how people lose everything in casinos. Born to Lose thought their luck would change and went back to the well with Mark Barron. However, he scored 5.50 points against a projected 9.80 and has now underachieved in three straight games.
  • The 8.20 points scored by Sterling Shepard fell short of his 11.85-point projection, the fourth straight game where that has happened.
  • At the DEF position, Born to Lose got outscored 12.00 - 4.00 by Seattle Trenchers.
  • Gotta hit rock button before you can start to rise. It was a season-low 2.90 points for Allen Robinson this week. It was also a season-low for his performance versus projections, reaching only 16.2% of a projected point total of 17.95.

  • The Toyota Hall of Fame recommends Born to Lose go on a WINNING streak, instead of a LOSING streak. That one word makes a surprising amount of difference.

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.
