Smooth Moves by Okusacks

  • 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.

  • With 12 points, Phillip Dorsett had his highest output of the season and beat his projected point total by a season-high 41.5%.

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.
  • Did not start Isaiah Crowell, who ranked eighth in the league in scoring and beat his scoring projection by 176.9%, the seventh-highest percentage in the league.
  • Could have started Jameis Winston, who underachieved, but still had more points than the starting QB with 6 against a projected 12.28.
  • This is how people lose everything in casinos. Da Force Awakens thought their luck would change and went back to the well with Marcus Mariota. However, he scored 4 points against a projected 12.68 and has now underachieved in three straight games.
  • 2 of the 9 starters scored zero points for Da Force Awakens.

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.
