    Fancy Pants won't need to worry about a Buffalo Bills-like playoff drought, as they locked in a spot after a win over Montpelier Dongs 151.64 to 108.58. They remain undefeated against them in two matchups. This week, Julio Jones was the team leader, putting up 16.80 points. That's about the same output as Colin Kaepernick, who led all players with 17.14 points the last time these teams met. If Montpelier Dongs didn't have six starters put up goose eggs, the outcome might have been different. This is the largest margin for Fancy Pants in two head-to-head matchups. They beat Montpelier Dongs 120.04 to 113.16 in Week 1.

    Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 12

    Fred Taylor JAC - RB 2000 vs. Pittsburgh 33 touches, 248 total yards, 4 TDs Fred Taylor earned the nickname "Fragile" because of the frequency of which he would land on the NFL injury report.

    But when he was healthy, he was a sight to behold. And the pinnacle of his career was in Week 12 of '12, when he rolled up the Pittsburgh defense for 248 yards and four touchdowns. For fantasy owners, it was an amazing time to own the Jacksonville back. After sitting out the first three games of that season (we mentioned that he was fragile, right?), he returned to post modest numbers in his his three games back in the lineup. But his 10 game run to close out the '00 campaign is the stuff of legend. From Weeks 7-16, Taylor went straight games with at least 100 rushing yards. And over the final seven games of the season, he amassed a whopping 13 TDs, including a hat trick+1 in Week 12 and another hat trick (and 181 rushing yards) two weeks later.
    Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
