Smooth Moves by BallZ Deep

  • Outscoring your opponent is a sure-fire way to win each week. You can thank the Toyota Hall of Fame for that valuable insight.

  • BallZ Deep was still able to pull out a win with only 1 of their 9 starters exceeding their projected points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Some teams are destined to beat teams like coopamania and move on to Toyota Hall of Fame greatness. Ironically, you are included in that destiny, because you played yourself.
  • Missed out on an opportunity by leaving the 22.80 points scored by Golden Tate on the bench this week. He outperformed his projected point total by 172.7%, the sixth-highest percentage in the league.
  • 8 of the starters on coopamania underperformed versus their projections.
  • This is how people lose everything in casinos. coopamania thought their luck would change and went back to the well with Carson Palmer. However, he scored 12.42 points against a projected 20.48 and has now underachieved in three straight games.
  • At the QB position, coopamania got outscored 37.60 - 12.42 by BallZ Deep.

What If

  • BallZ Deep would be 4-2 if they played coopamania every week.
  • Besides coopamania, BallZ Deep would have beaten only two other teams this week.
  • BallZ Deep would be 4-1 if they played the same schedule as coopamania.
  • If BallZ Deep had played every team in the league each week, they would be 34-20.
  • Besides BallZ Deep, coopamania would have been defeated by six other teams this week.
  • And they say procrastination doesn't pay off! Had they played each other last week, BallZ Deep would have lost to coopamania 103.86 - 91.38.
  • coopamania would be 4-1 if they played the same schedule as BallZ Deep.
  • coopamania would be 25-29 if they played every team every week.

Game Notes

  • BallZ Deep has now scored below their projected points for the last three weeks.
  • BallZ Deep put up their smallest winning point total of the year.
  • BallZ Deep won by 10.08 points, covering the 5.54-point spread.
  • Ezekiel Elliott scored 17.40 points against a projected 12.98 in the loss and has now beaten his projection in four straight games.
  • Not going to name names, but some people here aren't pulling their weight. Forget it, Graham Gano needs to step it up! He scored 7.00 points against a projected 10.06 in the win, and has now scored below his projection in four straight games.
  • coopamania ranked eighth in the league in scoring this week.
  • BallZ Deep won despite failing to reach their projected point total, improving to 1-2 when doing so. coopamania also failed to reach their point expectation and falls to 0-3 in such games.
  • If I had a performance like that, I'd probably go see the local hypnotist. Despite being on the winning team, Jordy Nelson scored a season-low 4.80 points, just 41.5% of a projected 11.58, his lowest percentage of the season.

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.
