Smooth Moves by The Grateful Dez

  • If this were a dream sequence, you'd hear a deep voice announce, "The Grateful Dez, the Toyota Hall of Famer." But it's not.
  • The 11 points by Steven Hauschka was the league-high for a K this week.
  • Antonio Brown scored 22 points, the seventh-highest WR score in the league this week.
  • Matt Jones put the team on his back with 21 points, the sixth-highest score among RBs in the league this week.
  • With 10 points versus a projected 7.65, the Houston Texans Defense exceeded their scoring projection by 30.7%.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • It's okay to regret not taking a sick day to study the Toyota Hall of Fame's articles. But it's not okay to do it again.
  • This is one of those mistakes that you continuously think about for ten years. Did not start Blake Bortles, who scored 29 points to rank eighth in the league in scoring.
  • Megaman - X left the 24 points scored by John Brown on the bench this week. He beat his projected point total by 94.6%, the 10th-highest percentage in the league.
  • The Kansas City Chiefs Defense scored the fewest points in the league this week with a season-low -2 points.
  • After a season-low 2 points against a projected 12.30, Julian Edelman has now scored below his projection in every game this season.

What If

  • The Grateful Dez would be 2-2 if they played Megaman - X every week.
  • Besides Megaman - X, The Grateful Dez would have defeated six other teams this week.
  • The Grateful Dez would be 3-0 if they played the same schedule as Megaman - X.
  • If The Grateful Dez had played every team in the league each week, they would be 31-5.
  • In addition to The Grateful Dez, Megaman - X would have lost to just two other teams this week.
  • And they say procrastination doesn't pay off! Had they played each other last week, The Grateful Dez would have lost to Megaman - X 169 - 165.
  • Megaman - X would be 2-1 if they played the same schedule as The Grateful Dez.
  • Megaman - X would be 25-11 if they played every team every week.

  • The 24-point win by The Grateful Dez beat the 17.41-point spread.
  • We don't condone cheating, but this group of wide receivers might want to spray Stickum on their gloves. The 30 total points by the WRs on Megaman - X was their lowest WR output this season.
  • This must be how Jay Leno feels with a garage full of high-performance cars. The Grateful Dez got a combined 34 points from their RBs, their highest combined scoring output from the RB position this season.

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.
