Smooth Moves by Rico's Roughnecks

  • 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.
  • Ben Roethlisberger had 33.90 points, the second-highest QB score of the week and the fourth-highest QB score in the league this season.
  • Benched RB Latavius Murray, who scored fewer points than any RB in the starting lineup with 2.40.

  • The Houston Texans Defense scored a season-high 21.20 points and beat their scoring projection by 71.7%, which led the matchup.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • 120.90 seems a lot higher when you're on the losing side of it. And the Toyota Hall of Fame knows you know that.
  • Mama Murph picked up Trevor Siemian, who then fell short of his 15.75-point projection by scoring 5.22 points.
  • It's tough to win when your team leader gets embarrassed like this. At the QB position, Mama Murph got outscored 33.90 - 5.22 by Rico's Roughnecks.
  • It's times like these when it's important to support your players when they're down. So move the mouse pointer away from the DROP button. DeVante Parker scored a season-low 2.00 points, 23.0% of his projected 8.68, which is his lowest percentage of the year.
  • Mama Murph had only 3 of their 9 starters underperform versus their projections, but they still lost.

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.
