  • Weekly Grade

Team 2 took down Team 6 106.98 to 81.82 due in part to a pair of elite performances, Lamar Miller with 29.80 points and Andrew Luck with 24.38. "You play to win the game. Hello! You play to win the game." Someone please tell this to Team 6, who is currently winless. For Team 6, Ezekiel Elliott and Carson Palmer played the roles of Maverick and Goose, scoring 17.40 and 12.42 points, respectively. Team 2 showed some mercy in the win, starting a player with zero points (Shayne Graham). Team 2 (3-3, 505.24 points) climbs into seventh place while Team 6 (0-6, 516.72 points) stays down in ninth place.

Smooth Moves by Team 2

  • If this were a dream sequence, you'd hear a deep voice announce, "Team 2, the Toyota Hall of Famer." But it's not.
  • Not quite the best, but pretty darn effective. Lamar Miller had the third-highest RB score of the week and the fourth-highest RB score in the league this season with 29.80 points.
  • We won't judge you if you want to bow to Andrew Luck. He ranked 10th in the league in scoring with 24.38 points.
  • Golden Tate scored 22.80 points, the third-highest WR score in the league this week.
  • Starter Shayne Graham put up a zero, but Team 2 still won.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • 106.98 seems a lot higher when you're on the losing side of it. And the Toyota Hall of Fame knows you know that.
  • Missed out on an opportunity by leaving the 22.30 points scored by Spencer Ware on the bench this week. He outperformed his projected point total by 300.7%, the second-highest percentage in the league.
  • This is how people lose everything in casinos. Team 6 thought their luck would change and went back to the well with Carson Palmer. However, he scored 12.42 points against a projected 20.80 and has now underachieved in three straight games.
  • With 7.10 points against a projected 14.32, Eddie Lacy did not meet his projection for the fifth straight game.
  • Allen Robinson had two season-lows this week. He scored a season-low 4.90 points and recorded only 44.3% of his 11.05-point projection.

What If

  • Team 2 would be 3-3 if they played Team 6 every week.
  • Team 2 would have beaten six other teams besides Team 6 this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Team 6, Team 2 would be 1-4.
  • If Team 2 had played every team in the league each week, they would be 27-27.
  • Team 6 would have lost to five other teams besides Team 2 this week.
  • And they say procrastination doesn't pay off! Had they played each other last week, Team 2 would have lost to Team 6 106.80 - 61.48.
  • If they played the same schedule as Team 2, Team 6 would be 2-3.
  • If they played every team every week, Team 6 would be 24-30.

Game Notes

  • Looks like teams bring their A game when they see them on the schedule. Of the losses Team 6 has had, four were against opponents who topped their season scoring average that week.
  • Team 2 had three starters who scored more points than the highest-scoring starter for Team 6.
  • With a combined 39.80 points from their WRs, Team 2 got their highest combined scoring output from the WR position this season.
  • Team 2 overachieved and improves to 2-1 when doing so, while Team 6 fell short of their projection. They are now 0-4 when scoring less than expected.
  • The 25.16-point margin of victory by Team 2 was the second-biggest win in the league this week.
  • Team 6 could not pull out the win, but Ezekiel Elliott did perform well with the ninth-best RB score in the league this week, scoring 17.40 points.
  • Mike Wallace did his best in the loss, ranking 10th among all WRs in the league with 9.70 points.
  • Team 6 had a lower score this week (81.82 points) than their season average of 86.12 points.

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.
