Smooth Moves by Brown & Out

  • The Toyota Hall of Fame would have its eyes on you for this week's win. But the Toyota Hall of Fame doesn't have eyes. Obviously.
  • Shipped in the mercenaries, picking up Mohamed Sanu which scored 23.40 points to lead the matchup.
  • The Denver Broncos Defense had 22.00 points, the highest DEF score of the week and the fifth-highest score among DEF in the league this season.
  • Brown & Out is either a fortune teller or really knows their stuff. Bilal Powell, who was picked up by Brown & Out, scored 14.90 points against a projected 11.09, topping his projection by 34.4%.
  • Those were the projections? We thought that was the starting point. 6 of the 10 starters on Brown & Out exceeded their projected points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Somehow, all of your players had two bye weeks this week. The Toyota Hall of Fame calls that a bye bye week. Yes, it's a bad joke, but it's still better than your score.
  • Should have started Coby Fleener, who underachieved, but still had more points than the starting TE with 7.60 against a projected 9.61.
  • At the DEF position, Ben Bottom got outscored by Brown & Out 22.00 - 3.00.
  • After a season-low 6.30 points against a projected 14.06, Marvin Jones Jr. has scored below his projection in five straight games.
  • The 2.00 points scored by Chandler Catanzaro was a season-low for both scoring and for his performance against projections. He reached only 26.9% of his 7.44 projected points this week.

What If

  • If Brown & Out played Ben Bottom every week, they'd be 4-4 this season.
  • Brown & Out would have beaten four other teams besides Ben Bottom this week.

  • If Brown & Out had played every team in the league each week, they would be 41-31.
  • Besides Brown & Out, Ben Bottom would have been defeated by five other teams this week.
  • And they say procrastination doesn't pay off! Had they played each other last week, Brown & Out would have lost to Ben Bottom 142.22 - 140.58.
  • Ben Bottom would be 4-3 if they played the same schedule as Brown & Out.
  • Ben Bottom would be 28-44 if they played every team every week.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 8

Sterling Sharpe GB - WR 1993 vs. Tampa Bay 10 Catches, 147 yards, 4 touchdowns In his seven-year career with the Packers, Sharpe had plenty of big games, but none was better than his Week 8 effort against the Buccaneers in ’93.

In the midst of a season in which he would total a career-high 112 catches, Sharpe pulled in 10 passes against Tampa Bay, four of them culminating in the end zone. Those scores along with 147 receiving yards amounted to Sharpe’s best fantasy effort of his career, and the best fantasy tally by a WR in Week 8 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.
