  • Team 10

  • Weekly Grade
  • Team 2
  • 50.98 pts, 1-1
  • Weekly Grade

Team 10 got 18.20 points from Greg Olsen and 17.30 from DeAndre Hopkins to put a thrashing on Team 2 97.82 to 50.98. Is this fantasy football or mixed martial arts? Because this 46.84-point margin of victory was nothing short of a beatdown and was the highest recorded in the league this season. Free fallin' like Tom Petty, Team 2 suffered a significant drop in scoring from last week's 118.30 to 105.64 win against Longhorns. On top of the loss, Team 2 had a starter score zero points (Shayne Graham). Team 10 (2-0, 210.40 points) moves into second place and Team 2 (1-1, 169.28 points) goes to seventh place.

Smooth Moves by Team 10

  • Fantasy Football is a game where the high score wins. So keep doing what you have to do, the Toyota Hall of Fame will turn a blind eye.
  • The 18.20 points scored by Greg Olsen was the highest TE score in the league this week.
  • What do Apache helicopters, F-117 Nighthawks and DeAndre Hopkins have in common? They are all dangerous aerial weapons. He ranked fifth in the league in scoring among WRs this week with 17.30 points.
  • C.J. Anderson scored 15.30 points, which ranked eighth out of all the RBs in the league this week.
  • With only 3 of their 9 starters beating their projected points, Team 10 was still able to win.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Sometimes 50.98 is enough. Unfortunately, the Toyota Hall of Fame has confirmed this time it's a smaller number than 97.82.
  • Did not start Frank Gore, who led the team in scoring with 12.30 points and beat his projected point total by 65.9%, the highest percentage on the team.
  • Team 2 had 7 starters fail to reach their projections.
  • The WR corps couldn't keep pace with their counterparts from Team 10 and were outscored 34.30 - 11.90.
  • Team 2 could have used more points from the TE position, where Team 10 beat them 18.20 - 7.10.

What If

  • Team 10 would be 1-1 if they played Team 2 every week.
  • Besides Team 2, Team 10 would have defeated five other teams this week.
  • Team 10 would be 13-5 if they played every team every week.
  • Team 2 would have lost to every other team in the league this week.
  • And they say procrastination doesn't pay off! Had they played each other last week, Team 10 would have lost to Team 2 118.30 - 112.58.
  • Team 2 would be 9-9 if they played every team every week.

Game Notes

  • Team 10 had four starters who scored more points than the highest-scoring starter for Team 2.
  • Team 10 won by the largest margin of victory in the league at 46.84 points.

  • Team 10 got the second-highest combined scoring output from the WR position for any team this week with 34.30 points.
  • Eli Manning, who had the highest projected points in the matchup, fell short of scoring projections with 12.32 points against a projected 20.93.
  • Although Team 10 won, they got little help from Mark Ingram, who only put up 4.70 points of a projected 13.15.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 2

Joe Namath NYJ - QB 1972 vs. Baltimore 496 passing yards, 6 touchdown passes Jets QB Joe Namath tormented the Baltimore Colts, with a Week 2 dissection of their secondary that amounted to 496 passing yards and six TD passes on just 15 total completions (15-of-28).

That worked out to a whopping 33.1 yards per completion en route to a 44-34 victory and the greatest Week 2 fantasy outing by a QB since the AFL/NFL merger.
