Fantasy football owners will accept any point margin to keep a win streak alive, but if you are able to win in a commanding fashion, it makes the streak all the more sweet. That is what Okusacks accomplished this week when they put up the highest point total they've scored this season, and won their third consecutive win, defeating Forrest Gump 103 to 94. The streak, which has provided big momentum for Okusacks, has allowed them to move up from ninth place in Week 3 to fifth place now. Forrest Gump goes to 0-5 and remains in 10th place. Okusacks has now run over Me chinee-mewin (97 to 86) and Asian Lives Matter (97 to 78).

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.
  • Philip Rivers had 32 points, the fourth-highest QB score of the week and the 10th-highest QB score in the league this season.
  • With 15 points, Rob Gronkowski had the third-highest TE score of the week and the seventh-best TE score in the league this season.
  • What do Apache helicopters, F-117 Nighthawks and Larry Fitzgerald have in common? They are all dangerous aerial weapons. He ranked seventh in the league in scoring among WRs this week with 20 points.
  • Even with only 4 of the 9 starters scoring more than their projection, Okusacks was still able to win.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Sometimes 94 is enough. Unfortunately, the Toyota Hall of Fame has confirmed this time it's a smaller number than 103.
  • With 7 points against a projected 9.52, Alshon Jeffery did not meet his projection for the fourth straight game.
  • Forrest Gump had 6 of their 9 starters score less than their projected points.
  • LeGarrette Blount could not reach his projected point total, scoring only 67.8% of his 13.28-point projection with 9 points.
  • Both of the starting RBs scored below their projected points.

What If

  • If Okusacks played Forrest Gump every week, they'd be 3-2 this year.
  • Besides Forrest Gump, Okusacks would have defeated three other teams this week.
  • Had they played each other last week, Okusacks would have defeated Forrest Gump 97 - 85.

  • Forrest Gump would have lost to five other teams besides Okusacks this week.
