Smooth Moves by DJ's Dominators

  • If this were a dream sequence, you'd hear a deep voice announce, "DJ's Dominators, the Toyota Hall of Famer." But it's not.
  • DJ's Dominators saw their fifth-largest single-week point total by a player this season with Blake Bortles scoring 25.88 points. The score was also high enough to rank fifth in the league.
  • Expect to see some trade offers for Derek Carr. He ranked eighth in the league in scoring with 23.76 points.
  • We won't judge you if you want to bow to A.J. Green. He ranked ninth in the league in scoring with 23.30 points.
  • Sat Jameis Winston, who scored 13.06 points, fewer than any QB in the starting lineup.

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.
  • The 3.10 points scored by Brandin Cooks fell short of his 10.74-point projection, the third straight game where that has happened.
  • This is how people lose everything in casinos. Zachary's Team thought their luck would change and went back to the well with Marcus Mariota. However, he scored 9.08 points against a projected 16.64 and has now underachieved in three straight games.
  • You've gotta hit rock button before you can start to rise. It was a season-low 7.40 points for Marvin Jones Jr. this week. It was also a season-low for his performance versus projections, reaching only 59.4% of a projected point total of 12.45.
  • Note to self: don't start a player when they're going to have their worst game of the season. The New England Patriots Defense had a season-low 3.00 points against a projected 6.94 and underachieved for the third time this season.

What If

  • If DJ's Dominators played Zachary's Team every week, they would be 2-2 this season.
  • DJ's Dominators would've been undefeated if they played every team in the league this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Zachary's Team, DJ's Dominators would be 1-2.
  • DJ's Dominators would be 25-11 if they played every team every week.
  • Zachary's Team would have lost to just one other team besides DJ's Dominators this week.
  • And they say procrastination doesn't pay off! Had they played each other last week, DJ's Dominators would have lost to Zachary's Team 148.76 - 101.56.
  • Zachary's Team would be 3-0 if they played the same schedule as DJ's Dominators.
  • If they played every team every week, Zachary's Team would be 28-8.

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.
