Smooth Moves by Trumplethinskin

  • The Toyota Hall of Fame would have its eyes on you for this week's win. But the Toyota Hall of Fame doesn't have eyes. Obviously.
  • Whoa! No one expected Jay Ajayi to do anything significant, but then who beat his scoring projection by 254.4%, which led the league.
  • Put WR Emmanuel Sanders on the bench, where he scored 8.60 points, fewer than any WR in the starting lineup.
  • Trumplethinskin is either a fortune teller or really knows their stuff. Spencer Ware, who was picked up by Trumplethinskin, scored 19.10 points against a projected 13.73, topping his projection by 39.2%.
  • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just Mike Evans posterizing opponents. He had the second-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 21.60 points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • 126.02 seems a lot higher when you're on the losing side of it. And the Toyota Hall of Fame knows you know that.
  • The RBs for We Dem Boyz got outscored 46.70 - 18.70 by the RBs for Trumplethinskin.
  • The WR corps couldn't keep pace with their counterparts from Trumplethinskin and were outscored 47.00 - 21.30.
  • After a season-low 1.00 point against a projected 9.28, Jordan Matthews has scored below his projection in five straight games.
  • You've gotta hit rock button before you can start to rise. It was a season-low 2.90 points for Amari Cooper this week. It was also a season-low for his performance versus projections, reaching only 27.7% of a projected point total of 10.48.

  • Trumplethinskin would be 3-4 if they played We Dem Boyz every week.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 7

Shannon Sharpe Den - TE 2002 vs. Kansas City 12 Catches, 214 yards, 2 touchdowns In a career that included eight Pro Bowls and a seven top 2 finishes at the TE position in fantasy scoring, Sharpe was never better than his 214-yard, two-TD performance against the division-rival Chiefs in Week 7 of 2002.

In fact, no tight end has ever had a better week since the AFL-NFL merger in 1970. Sharpe still stands as the only tight end to tally 200-plus receiving yards in a game and his PPR-popping 12 catches is a total that has only been reached 17 times by a TE since the merger.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
