Smooth Moves by Dennis' Team

  • 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.
  • Dennis' Team saw their second-largest single-week point total by a player this season with Carson Palmer scoring 29.52 points. The score was also high enough to rank sixth in the league.
  • Amari Cooper felt like the Rodney Dangerfield of football: "no respect at all" with this week's projected points. He scored the eighth-most points in the league and beat his projected point total by 128.1%, the seventh-highest percentage in the league.
  • Took Tyrod Taylor out of the starting lineup, who scored 18.12 points on the bench, fewer than the starting QB.
  • Giovani Bernard scored 12.60 points against a projected 8.72 and has now overachieved in four straight games.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • It's okay to regret not taking a sick day to study the Toyota Hall of Fame's articles. But it's not okay to do it again.
  • This is one of those mistakes that you continuously think about for ten years. Did not start Marcus Mariota, who scored 23.90 points to rank ninth in the league in scoring.
  • Chandler Catanzaro was last on the team in scoring with 2.00 points against a projected 7.01 and has now underachieved in six straight games.
  • Even though ez BREESy lost, only 2 of their 9 starters scored less than their projected points.
  • James White could not reach his projected point total, scoring only 33.6% of his 8.63-point projection with 2.90 points.

  • If Dennis' Team played ez BREESy every week, they'd be 2-6 this year.
  • Dennis' Team would have beaten four other teams besides ez BREESy this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as ez BREESy, Dennis' Team would be 1-6.
  • If Dennis' Team had played every team in the league each week, they would be 23-49.
  • ez BREESy would have lost to five other teams besides Dennis' Team this week.
  • And they say procrastination doesn't pay off! Had they played each other last week, Dennis' Team would have lost to ez BREESy 129.98 - 69.34.
  • ez BREESy would be 4-3 if they played the same schedule as Dennis' Team.
  • If they played every team every week, ez BREESy would be 43-28-1.

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.
