Smooth Moves by Crusaders

  • 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.
  • A.J. Green was uncoverable, scoring the second-most points by a WR this week with 37.30 points. It also ranks as the sixth-greatest game by a WR this season.
  • This is the bar, and this is the team jumping over it. Crusaders had 5 of their 9 starters exceed their projected points.
  • Crusaders won even with Thomas Rawls in the starting lineup, who didn't score any points.
  • By scoring 15.00 points, the Denver Broncos Defense beat their 9.14 projected points by 64.1%.

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.
  • DeAndre Hopkins was last in the matchup in scoring and achieved only 8.0% of his projected point total, his lowest percentage of the season.
  • The WR corps couldn't keep pace with their counterparts from Crusaders and were outscored 65.10 - 22.50.
  • The 6.30 points scored by Matt Forte was a season-low for both scoring and for his performance against projections. He reached only 42.6% of his 14.78 projected points this week.
  • 6 of the starters on hangnlow scored less than their projected points.

What If

  • If Crusaders played hangnlow every week, they'd be 3-1 this year.
  • Besides hangnlow, Crusaders would have defeated four other teams this week.
  • Were they resting their players for this week? Crusaders would have defeated hangnlow 116.88 - 116.54 had they played each other last week.
  • If they played the same schedule as hangnlow, Crusaders would be 1-2.
  • If Crusaders had played every team in the league each week, they would be 20-24.
  • Besides Crusaders, hangnlow would have been defeated by nine other teams this week.
  • hangnlow would be 2-1 if they played the same schedule as Crusaders.
  • hangnlow would be 23-21 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.
