Smooth Moves by Mighty Lumberjacks

  • Traded for Matt Ryan, who led the matchup in scoring with 24.42 points.
  • With 15.40 points, Jordy Nelson ranked fourth in the league in scoring among WRs this week.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Don't worry, Draped in Velvet, the Toyota Hall of Fame says losing isn't contagious. But it is embarrassing. And you should be embarrassed.
  • Should have started the Tennessee Titans Defense, which underachieved, but still had more points than the starting DEF with 5.00 against a projected 9.68.
  • The Minnesota Vikings Defense was last on the team in scoring with 2.00 points, 21.7% of their projected 9.21, which is their lowest percentage of the season.
  • A heated blanket would be a great gift for Allen Robinson during this cold streak. He scored below his projection in three straight games after scoring 7.00 points against a projected 10.71 this week.
  • Marvin Jones Jr. did not meet his 9.03 projected points and has now underperformed versus projections for five straight weeks. He also scored a season-low 3.30 points.

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.
