Smooth Moves by Avenging Ninjas

  • Just call him Fred Flintstone, because he was toting the rock all day long. Adrian Peterson had 42.70 points, the highest RB score of the week and the eighth-highest RB score in the league this season.

  • Had the team's highest starter/bench scoring ratio of the season, starting 171.50 points versus 28.10 points from players left on the bench.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • The good news is, at least we know you're trying. The bad news is, you don't seem to be any good at trying.
  • Left the Washington Redskins Defense on the bench, where they scored 10.00 points, exceeding their scoring projection by 113.7%, the highest percentage in the matchup.
  • Davante Adams has now failed to reach his projection for three straight games. This week he scored 1.40 points versus a projected 8.47.
  • The 3.60 points scored by Brandon LaFell fell short of his 9.31-point projection, the third straight game where that has happened.
  • A heated blanket would be a great gift for Michael Crabtree during this cold streak. He scored below his projection in three straight games after scoring 7.90 points against a projected 10.67 this week.

  • If they played the same schedule as Avenging Ninjas, Vancleave Bulldogs would be 5-5.
  • If they played every team every week, Vancleave Bulldogs would be 36-72.

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.
