Smooth Moves by Chube City

  • Even if you cried trying to win, you still won. And the Toyota Hall of Fame is proud of Chube City either way.
  • Shipped in the mercenaries, picking up Blake Bortles which scored 29.68 points to lead the matchup.
  • Amari Cooper felt like the Rodney Dangerfield of football, 'no respect at all' with this week's projected points. He scored the 10th-most points in the league and beat his projected point total by 101.2%, the 10th-highest percentage in the league.
  • 7 of the 9 starters on Chube City exceeded their projected points.
  • There are rumors that the military wants to model a new all-terrain vehicle based off of DeMarco Murray. He had the fifth-highest score among RBs in the league this week with 18.80 points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • 129.38 seems a lot higher when you're on the losing side of it. And the Toyota Hall of Fame knows you know that.
  • Missed out on an opportunity by leaving the 15.00 points scored by Graham Gano on the bench this week. He outperformed his projected point total by 106.0%, the seventh-highest percentage in the league.
  • Did not start Andy Dalton, who led the team in scoring with 20.46 points.
  • Chube City had a better day at the QB position, topping Mr.Toast&Me 29.68 - 12.78.
  • Note to self: don't start a player when they're going to have their worst game of the season. Cam Newton had a season-low 12.78 points against a projected 18.82 and underachieved for the third time this season.

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.
