Underdog? More like obvious favorite. Dirt Stars overcame a 16.04-point projected spread to defeat Dennis' Team 89.08 to 65.42 for the upset. They got a team-leading 29.88 points from Blake Bortles and 15.40 from Demaryius Thomas. Dennis' Team definitely shouldn't plan a trip to Vegas. Their luck couldn't get any worse as they are on a three-game losing streak. Mark Ingram led Dennis' Team with 16.50 points while Carlos Hyde racked up 13.90. The margin could have been larger, Dirt Stars had a starter score zero points (Julius Thomas). Dirt Stars (2-2, 392.96 points) climbs into seventh place and Dennis' Team (1-3, 346.20 points) stays in ninth place.

Smooth Moves by Dirt Stars

  • 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.
  • With 29.88 points, Blake Bortles ranked sixth in the league in scoring this week and had the second-highest score of any player on Dirt Stars this season.
  • Demaryius Thomas scored 15.40 points, the seventh-highest WR score in the league this week.
  • Those were the projections? We thought that was the starting point. 5 of the 9 starters on Dirt Stars exceeded their projected points.
  • Even with a zero from starter Julius Thomas, Dirt Stars was still able to win.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Next week, be sure to ask Dirt Stars where official Toyota Hall of Fame articles are kept.
  • Did not start Tyrod Taylor, who led the team in scoring with 18.64 points.
  • Connor Barth has scored below his projection in every game this season after scoring 4.00 points against a projected 6.94 this week.
  • DeAndre Hopkins was last on the team in scoring with 0.40 points, 3.5% of his projected 11.57, which is his lowest percentage of the season.
  • Dennis' Team would have welcomed more points at WR, where Dirt Stars topped them 25.40 - 5.20.

What If

  • If Dirt Stars played Dennis' Team every week, they'd be 2-2 this season.
  • Dirt Stars would have beaten only one other team besides Dennis' Team this week.
  • Had they played each other last week, Dirt Stars would have defeated Dennis' Team 118.20 - 70.58.
  • If they played the same schedule as Dennis' Team, Dirt Stars would be 1-2.
  • Dirt Stars would be 11-25 if they played every team every week.
  • Dennis' Team would have been beaten by every other team in the league this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Dirt Stars, Dennis' Team would be 0-3.
  • Dennis' Team would be 9-27 if they played every team every week.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 4

Anthony Allen Was - WR 1987 vs. St. Louis 7 Catches, 255 yards, 3 touchdowns To say that Allen’s Week 4 performance in ’87 stands out in his NFL career would be a major understatement.

In what was the first of three games played that season with replacement players due to a player’s strike, Allen took advantage of his moment in the spotlight (and the Cardinals scab secondary) to the tune of 255 receiving yards and three touchdowns. He set the Washington franchise record for receiving yards, which still stands today. In total, Allen played parts of just five NFL seasons - including just those three strike games in ’87 – amassing a total of 767 receiving yards, a third of which came in this Week 4 contest.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
