Smooth Moves by Raider Nation

  • If this were a dream sequence, you'd hear a deep voice announce, "Raider Nation, the Toyota Hall of Famer." But it's not.
  • With 23.02 points against a projected 16.82, Drew Brees led the team in scoring and has now overachieved in five straight games.
  • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just Dez Bryant posterizing opponents. He had the sixth-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 17.60 points.
  • Starter Michael Thomas put up a zero, but Raider Nation still won.
  • With 13.00 points versus a projected 8.15, the Kansas City Chiefs Defense exceeded their scoring projection by 59.5%.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • 106.38 seems a lot higher when you're on the losing side of it. And the Toyota Hall of Fame knows you know that.
  • Did not start Ryan Mathews, who scored 27.90 points and beat his projected point total by 617.9%, which was the highest percentage in the league.
  • Could've started the Arizona Cardinals Defense, which underachieved, but still outscored the starting DEF with 6.00 against a projected 9.32.
  • This is how people lose everything in casinos. Justglo thought their luck would change and went back to the well with Emmanuel Sanders. However, he scored 5.40 points against a projected 10.50 and has now underachieved in three straight games.
  • Justglo tried to fight through 4 of their 10 starters getting zeros, but could not overcome it.

  • If Raider Nation played Justglo every week, they would be 5-5 this season.

  • Raider Nation would be 53-37 if they played every team every week.

  • Justglo would be 4-4 if they played the same schedule as Raider Nation.
  • If they played every team every week, Justglo would be 44-46.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 10

Marshawn Lynch Sea - RB 2014 vs. New York Giants 21 Carries, 140 yards, 4 touchdowns Beast Mode had many memorable games as a member of the Seahawks, but none packed a bigger fantasy punch than his Week 10 bulldozing job against the Giants in ’14.

Against the G-men, Lynch punched in four of Seattle’s five touchdowns, and might have scored all five TDs had QB Russell Wilson not called his own number on a one-yard score late in the contest. In addition to his end-zone parade, Lynch rolled for 140 yards on the ground en route to delivering the best Week 10 fantasy performance by a running back 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.
