Smooth Moves by Doli Lama

  • A higher score than your opponent is a guaranteed way to win each week. Thank the Toyota Hall of Fame for that valuable insight.
  • The Denver Broncos Defense had 22 points, the highest DEF score of the week and the fourth-highest score among DEF in the league this season.
  • Took Andy Dalton out of the starting lineup, who scored 14 points on the bench, fewer than the starting QB.
  • We won't judge you if you want to bow to Drew Brees. He ranked ninth in the league in scoring with 17 points.
  • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just Alshon Jeffery posterizing opponents. He had the eighth-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 9 points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Funny, the Hall provides articles you could have studied. But instead you watched King Tut cry trying.
  • Well, that's embarrassing. Left Jameis Winston on the bench, where he ranked ninth in the league in scoring with 17 points.
  • A heated blanket would be a great gift for Brandon Marshall during this cold streak. He scored below his projection in three straight games after scoring 3 points against a projected 7.11 this week.
  • The best offense is a good defense. King Tut got beat 22 - 3 by Doli Lama at the DEF position.
  • King Tut needed more points from the QB position, where Doli Lama beat them 17 - 6.

What If

  • If Doli Lama played King Tut every week, they'd be 4-4 this year.
  • Besides King Tut, Doli Lama would have defeated four other teams this week.
  • Doli Lama would be 4-3 if they played the same schedule as King Tut.
  • If Doli Lama had played every team in the league each week, they would be 47-25.
  • King Tut would have lost to five other teams besides Doli Lama this week.
  • And they say procrastination doesn't pay off! Had they played each other last week, Doli Lama would have lost to King Tut 86 - 64.
  • King Tut would be 7-0 if they played the same schedule as Doli Lama.
  • King Tut would be 43-28-1 if they played every team every week.

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.
