Smooth Moves by Team 10

  • A higher score than your opponent is a guaranteed way to win each week. Thank the Toyota Hall of Fame for that valuable insight.
  • C.J. Anderson seemed to take offense to this week's projected points. He ranked seventh in the league in scoring and beat his scoring projection by 190.9%, the third-highest percentage in the league.
  • The 7.30 points scored by Greg Olsen was the fourth-highest point total among TEs in the league this week.
  • Blair Walsh exceeded scoring projections by 81.6%, with 16.00 points against a projected 8.81.
  • Team 10 won despite having only 4 of their 9 starters exceed their scoring projection.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Next week, be sure to ask Team 10 where official Toyota Hall of Fame articles are kept.
  • Team 6 had no luck at the K position, losing the point battle 16.00 - 2.00 to Team 10.
  • Team 6 had 6 of their 9 starters score less than their projected points.
  • With 2.00 points versus a projected 7.71, Connor Barth scored only 26.0% of his projected point total.
  • The two RBs on Team 6 let them down, failing to bring in their expected point totals.

What If

  • Besides Team 6, Team 10 would have defeated six other teams this week.
  • Hypothetically speaking, if Team 10 had scored 5.73 more points, they would have beaten every team in the league this week.
  • Besides Team 10, Team 6 would have been defeated by six other teams this week.
  • If Team 6 had scored 3.13 fewer points, they would have lost to all teams in the league this week.

Game Notes

  • Two of the starters for Team 10 scored higher than the leading scorer for Team 6.
  • With 23.20 points, Team 6 got the lowest combined scoring output from the WR position for any team this week.
  • The margin of victory was the second-largest in the league this week.
  • Team 6 scored 79.94 points, ranking them eighth in the league in scoring.
  • Team 10 got the second-highest combined scoring output from the RB position for any team this week with 34.60 points.
  • In the loss, the Philadephia Eagles Defense scored 11.00 points against a projected 6.60 and exceeded their scoring projection by 66.6%.
  • Team 10 might want to see a chiropractor, because they were carrying Dez Bryant on their back the whole week. He was on the winning team, but only scored 0.80 points against his projected 12.37.
  • Although they won, Team 10 could have scored more and left the 23.20 points from Willie Snead on the bench.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 1

Earnest Gray NYG - WR 1980 vs. St. Louis 9 Catches, 174 yards, 4 touchdowns A second-round pick by the Giants in 1979, Earnest Gray posted modest numbers in his rookie campaign, with just 28 catches, 537 yards and four total touchdowns.

So it was unexpected, to say the least, when he opened up his sophomore campaign with a 174-yard performance that included four touchdowns (matching his total from his entire first season). Gray would go on to finish '80 campaign with 10 touchdowns, but no other performance that season came close to what he did in the Week 1 opener, which stands as the greatest Week 1 fantasy effort by a wide receiver since the AFL/NFL merger in 1970.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
