  • Weekly Grade

Zachary's Team (4-2, 784.58 points) becomes king of the hill (the position, not the show) after eviscerating jtlostica's Team (10th place, 1-5, 449.62 points) 148.12 to 86.32. Zachary's Team also got the third-highest point total this season. Is this fantasy football or mixed martial arts? Because this 61.80-point margin of victory was nothing short of a beatdown and was the second-highest recorded in the league this season. jtlostica's Team put in a solid effort with an increase in point total compared to last week's 95.44 to 65.36 loss against DJ's Dominators. When assigning blame following this loss, jtlostica's Team can look in the mirror. They started a player with zero points (Steve Smith Sr.).

Smooth Moves by Zachary's Team

  • If this were a dream sequence, you'd hear a deep voice announce, "Zachary's Team, the Toyota Hall of Famer." But it's not.
  • LeSean McCoy didn't have the best score of the week, but there ain't no shame in his game. He had 32.20 points, the second-highest RB score of the week and the second-highest RB score in the league this season.
  • Brandin Cooks was uncoverable, scoring the second-most points by a WR this week with 23.50 points. It also ranks as the 10th-greatest game by a WR this season.
  • Expect to see some trade offers for Marcus Mariota. He ranked seventh in the league in scoring with 28.76 points.
  • Julio Jones scored 19.90 points, the fourth-highest WR score in the league this week.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Funny, the Hall provides articles you could have studied. But instead you watched jtlostica's Team cry trying.
  • Did not start Jamaal Charles, who underachieved but still scored more than any RB on the team with 10.70 points against a projected 11.84.
  • jtlostica's Team would have welcomed more points at WR, where Zachary's Team topped them 50.70 - 9.90.
  • This is how people lose everything in casinos. jtlostica's Team thought their luck would change and went back to the well with Alex Smith. However, he scored 8.86 points against a projected 19.58 and has now underachieved in four straight games.
  • With 4.90 points against a projected 9.99, DeAndre Washington did not meet his projection for the third straight game.

What If

  • If Zachary's Team played jtlostica's Team every week, they would be 6-0 this season.
  • Zachary's Team would have beaten seven other teams besides jtlostica's Team this week.
  • Were they resting their players for this week? Zachary's Team would have defeated jtlostica's Team 129.38 - 65.36 had they played each other last week.
  • If they played the same schedule as jtlostica's Team, Zachary's Team would be 4-1.
  • If Zachary's Team had played every team in the league each week, they would be 45-9.
  • jtlostica's Team would have lost to four other teams besides Zachary's Team this week.
  • jtlostica's Team would be 0-5 if they played the same schedule as Zachary's Team.
  • jtlostica's Team would be 6-48 if they played every team every week.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 6

LaDainian Tomlinson SD - RB 2005 vs. Oakland 179 yards from scrimmage, 1 TD rush, 1 TD reception, 1 TD pass In his Week 6 contest against the Raiders in ’05, Tomlinson became just the seventh player in NFL history to throw for a TD, run for a TD and catch a TD pass in the same game.

And, while his effort stands as a great testament to LT’s all-around skills, it goes down as just the eighth-best fantasy performance by a running back since the AFL-NFL merger. In fact, Tomlinson managed to one-up himself in Week 6 in each of the following two seasons, rolling up 135 total yards and four scores against San Francisco in ’06, and 214 total yards and four touchdowns against Oakland (again) in ’07 – which stands as the top Week 6 RB fantasy performance.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
