  • Weekly Grade

Team 3 got the third-highest point total by a player this week (33.90 points) from Ben Roethlisberger and erased a 26.58-point deficit on Sunday night, stealing one from Team 10 76.40 to 73.58. This was one of the tightest outcomes to date, with the 2.82-point margin of victory being the smallest recorded in the league this season. Free fallin' like Tom Petty, Team 10 suffered a significant drop in scoring from last week's 104.94 to 78.72 win against Team 7. It could have gone the other way, Team 10 had several starters score zero points. Team 3 (2-2, 353.94 points) climbs into fifth place and Team 10 (1-3, 361.06 points) drops to eighth place.

Smooth Moves by Team 3

  • If this were a dream sequence, you'd hear a deep voice announce, "Team 3, the Toyota Hall of Famer." But it's not.
  • Ben Roethlisberger had 33.90 points, the second-highest QB score of the week and the third-highest QB score in the league this season.
  • Team 3 was still able to pull out a win with only 2 of their 9 starters exceeding their projected points.
  • By scoring 10.00 points, the Houston Texans Defense beat their 7.64 projected points by 30.9%.
  • Even with both of their RBs falling short of their projected scores, Team 3 still won.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Somehow, all of your players had two bye weeks this week. The Toyota Hall of Fame calls that a bye bye week. Yes, it's a bad joke, but it's still better than your score.
  • Should have started Justin Tucker, who underachieved, but still outscored the starting K with 8.00 against a projected 10.00.
  • Got beat by Team 3 even though they had their lowest-scoring week of the season.
  • A heated blanket would be a great gift for Chris Boswell during this cold streak. He scored below his projection in three straight games after scoring 5.00 points against a projected 9.89 this week.
  • With 7.80 points against a projected 11.30, Jeremy Maclin did not meet his projection for the third straight game.

What If

  • If Team 3 played Team 10 every week, they'd be 2-2 this year.
  • Team 3 would have beaten three other teams besides Team 10 this week.
  • Team 3 would be 2-1 if they played the same schedule as Team 10.
  • Team 3 would be 18-18 if they played every team every week.
  • Besides Team 3, Team 10 would have been defeated by six other teams this week.
  • And they say procrastination doesn't pay off! Had they played each other last week, Team 3 would have lost to Team 10 104.94 - 85.58.
  • Team 10 would be 2-1 if they played the same schedule as Team 3.
  • Team 10 would be 16-20 if they played every team every week.

Game Notes

  • The margin of victory of 2.82 points was the smallest in the league this season.
  • The 76.40 points scored by Team 3 is the lowest winning score in the league this season.
  • Team 10 had 73.58 points, their season-low.
  • Team 3 got their lowest combined scoring output from the RB position this season with only 8.50 points this week.
  • This must be how Jay Leno feels with a garage full of high-performance cars. Team 10 got a combined 21.70 points from their RBs, their highest combined scoring output from the RB position this season.
  • With the loss, Team 10 falls to 1-1 in comeback games this season.
  • Team 3 won even though Team 10 performed better against their scoring projection. Team 10 scored 96.0% of their 76.65 projected points, while Team 3 recorded 83.8% of their 91.16-point projection.
  • Team 3 is now 1-2 when failing to reach their projection and Team 10 falls to 0-3 when scoring below their projected total.

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.
