Smooth Moves by JPC144

  • What do Apache helicopters, F-117 Nighthawks and Odell Beckham Jr. have in common? They are all dangerous aerial weapons. He ranked seventh in the league in scoring among WRs this week with 20.20 points.
  • LeSean McCoy put the team on his back with 14.10 points, the seventh-highest score among RBs in the league this week.
  • Alex Smith led the team in scoring for the first time this season with 21.70 points.
  • JPC144 saw the majority of their starters (5 of 9) beat their projected point total.
  • John Brown overachieved by 20.8%, scoring 9.90 points against a projected 8.19.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • You gave it the old college try. Unfortunately for you, this isn't college ball. This is professional football at the national level; you know the acronym.
  • Did not start Julius Thomas, who scored 17.60 points, surpassing his projected points by 160.2%, the fifth-highest percentage in the league.
  • Had a chance to start Adam Vinatieri, who outdid his scoring projection of 7.61 points by scoring 15.00 points.
  • 8 of the starters on Piper Cubs underperformed versus their projections.
  • With 1.30 points, Lamar Miller was last on the team in scoring and got only 12.3% of his 10.59 projected points, his lowest percentage of the season.

What If

  • If JPC144 played Piper Cubs every week, they'd be 6-6 this year.
  • JPC144 would have beaten only two other teams besides Piper Cubs this week.
  • Were they resting their players for this week? JPC144 would have defeated Piper Cubs 80.42 - 58.30 had they played each other last week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Piper Cubs, JPC144 would be 3-7.
  • If JPC144 had played every team in the league each week, they would be 48-60.
  • Besides JPC144, Piper Cubs would have been defeated by seven other teams this week.
  • Piper Cubs would be 3-7 if they played the same schedule as JPC144.
  • If they played every team every week, Piper Cubs would be 41-67.

Game Notes

  • Luck has not been with Piper Cubs, as four of their eight losses have come when their opponent scores higher than their season average.
  • Piper Cubs has the longest current losing streak in the league, having lost three straight games.
  • The tragedy of being an underachiever is that Piper Cubs knows what they should be, but reality keeps telling them that they're wrong. They scored 77.10 points against a projected 100.84 and underachieved for the eighth time this season, including the last three weeks in a row.
  • Despite being on the winning team, the New England Patriots Defense had a season-low 4.00 points against a projected 8.12 and has now underachieved in three straight games.
  • The RBs on Piper Cubs collectively had their worst week of the season with only 12.50 points.
  • Not going to name names, but some people here aren't pulling their weight. Forget it, Brandon LaFell needs to step it up! He scored 3.60 points against a projected 8.55 in the win, and has now scored below his projection in three straight games.
  • Piper Cubs is now 3-3 in comeback games this season, including losses in their last three such contests.
  • JPC144 remains undefeated in upset games this season, improving to 3-0.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 12

Kellen Winslow SD - TE 1981 vs. Oaklan 13 catches, 144 yards, 5 TDs While Winslow is probably best remembered for his grueling, heroic effort in a 41-38 overtime victory against Miami in the playoffs of the ’81 season (13 catches, 166 yards, TD), it was his Week 12 performance of that same year (5 TDs at Oakland) that goes down as not only the best statistical tally of his career, but the best fantasy performance by a tight end since at least the AFL/NFL merger of 1970.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
