Smooth Moves by Rick Grimes

  • 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.
  • This one goes on the highlight reel at the end of the season. Odell Beckham Jr. scored 41.20 points, the highest of any player on Rick Grimes this season.
  • Lamar Miller didn't have the best score of the week, but there ain't no shame in his game. He had 32.80 points, the third-highest RB score of the week and the fifth-highest RB score in the league this season.
  • The 31.20 points scored by Cam Newton was the second-highest QB score of the week and is the ninth-highest QB score in the league this season.
  • The 16.60 points scored by Kelvin Benjamin was the seventh-highest score by a WR in the league this week.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Don't worry, cat, the Toyota Hall of Fame says losing isn't contagious. But it is embarrassing. And you should be embarrassed.
  • The 8.50 points scored by Antonio Brown fell short of his 22.29-point projection, the third straight game where that has happened.
  • A heated blanket would be a great gift for Marvin Jones Jr. during this cold streak. He scored below his projection in three straight games after scoring 9.30 points against a projected 16.79 this week.
  • This is how people lose everything in casinos. cat thought their luck would change and went back to the well with Justin Tucker. However, he scored 11.00 points against a projected 13.87 and has now underachieved in three straight games.
  • The 18.80 points scored by Le'Veon Bell was a season-low for both scoring and for his performance against projections. He reached only 67.0% of his 28.05 projected points this week.

What If

  • If Rick Grimes played cat every week, they'd be 2-4 this season.
  • Rick Grimes would've been undefeated if they played every team in the league this week.
  • Rick Grimes would be 1-3 if they played the same schedule as cat.
  • If Rick Grimes had played every team in the league each week, they would be 12-18.
  • In addition to Rick Grimes, cat would have lost to just one other team this week.
  • And they say procrastination doesn't pay off! Had they played each other last week, Rick Grimes would have lost to cat 169.60 - 95.30.
  • cat would be 3-1 if they played the same schedule as Rick Grimes.
  • cat would be 25-5 if they played every team every week.

Game Notes

  • Rick Grimes had a league-high for the week with 185.40 points, which is the third-highest score in the league this season.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 6

LaDainian Tomlinson SD - RB 2005 vs. Oakland 179 yards from scrimmage, 1 TD rush, 1 TD reception, 1 TD pass In his Week 6 contest against the Raiders in ’05, Tomlinson became just the seventh player in NFL history to throw for a TD, run for a TD and catch a TD pass in the same game.

And, while his effort stands as a great testament to LT’s all-around skills, it goes down as just the eighth-best fantasy performance by a running back since the AFL-NFL merger. In fact, Tomlinson managed to one-up himself in Week 6 in each of the following two seasons, rolling up 135 total yards and four scores against San Francisco in ’06, and 214 total yards and four touchdowns against Oakland (again) in ’07 – which stands as the top Week 6 RB fantasy performance.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
