Trumplethinskin benefited from 20.46 points from Andy Dalton and 14.80 from Ezekiel Elliott to easily dispatch Team JAB 85.36 to 57.72. While Team JAB (3-5) is only a game back of Trumplethinskin (4-4), it has a lot to do with luck because total points tells a different story, 763.66 to 643.58. Just like the Titanic, the Team JAB-ship is going down, having lost their fifth straight.

Smooth Moves by Trumplethinskin

  • Trumplethinskin scored massive brownie points with the Toyota Hall of Fame this week. Too bad brownie points don't count as real points. Not that you need help.
  • With 14.80 points, Ezekiel Elliott ranked 10th in scoring among all RBs in the league this week.
  • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just Michael Crabtree posterizing opponents. He had the 10th-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 10.80 points.
  • Zach Miller had the fifth-highest TE score in the league this week with 8.80 points.
  • Andy Dalton led the team in scoring for the second time this season with 20.46 points.

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.
  • Well, that's embarrassing. Left Kirk Cousins on the bench, where he ranked fifth in the league in scoring with 25.22 points.
  • Whoever gave you this advice, you might want to lose their number. Picked up and started the Tennessee Titans Defense, which then scored below their 9.15-point projection with 4.00 points.
  • A heated blanket would be a great gift for Russell Wilson during this cold streak. He scored below his projection in three straight games after scoring 10.22 points against a projected 20.45 this week.
  • 8 of the 9 starters scored less than their projected points.

What If

  • If Trumplethinskin played Team JAB every week, they'd be 5-3 this season.
  • Besides Team JAB, Trumplethinskin would have beaten only two other teams this week.
  • Were they resting their players for this week? Trumplethinskin would have defeated Team JAB 126.02 - 72.94 had they played each other last week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Team JAB, Trumplethinskin would be 6-1.
  • If Trumplethinskin had played every team in the league each week, they would be 38-34.
  • Team JAB would have lost to seven other teams besides Trumplethinskin this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Trumplethinskin, Team JAB would be 1-6.
  • If they played every team every week, Team JAB would be 20-52.

Game Notes

  • Team JAB scored 57.72 points against a projected 96.09 and has underachieved every week this season.
  • Trumplethinskin had their lowest winning score of the season with 85.36 points.
  • Trumplethinskin covered the 7.32-point spread, winning by 27.64 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.
