Smooth Moves by Eagles #1

  • If this was college, Ryan Tannehill would expect to get a sleeve of helmet stickers. He ranked second in the league in scoring this week with 98.04 points. It was also the second-highest score of any player on Eagles #1 this season.
  • Chris Ivory scored 21.20 points, which ranked fourth out of all the RBs in the league this week.
  • Starter Ryan Mathews put up a zero, but Eagles #1 still won.
  • Eagles #1 won despite having only 3 of their 11 starters exceed their scoring projection.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Well, that's embarrassing. Left Andy Dalton on the bench, where he ranked 10th in the league in scoring with 62.72 points.
  • If only we provided some kind of tool, like weekly articles, that would help Cosby's Sleepers secure a victory. Oh, WAIT, we do.
  • Should've started the New York Jets Defense, which underachieved, but still had more points than the starting DEF with 8.00 against a projected 8.75.
  • Josh Brown, who Cosby's Sleepers picked up this week, scored below his 8.70-point projection with 2.00 points.
  • It's times like these when it's important to support your players when they're down. So move the mouse pointer away from the DROP button. Drew Brees scored a season-low 50.12 points, 63.5% of his projected 78.91, which is his lowest percentage of the year.

What If

  • If Eagles #1 played Cosby's Sleepers every week, they'd be 5-7 this season.
  • Eagles #1 would have beaten four other teams besides Cosby's Sleepers this week.
  • Eagles #1 would be 2-8 if they played the same schedule as Cosby's Sleepers.
  • Eagles #1 would be 47-61 if they played every team every week.
  • Besides Eagles #1, Cosby's Sleepers would have been defeated by six other teams this week.
  • Timing really is everything. Eagles #1 would have lost to Cosby's Sleepers 154.70 - 118.32 had they played each other last week.
  • Cosby's Sleepers would be 6-4 if they played the same schedule as Eagles #1.
  • If they played every team every week, Cosby's Sleepers would be 52-56.

Game Notes

  • Cosby's Sleepers has lost 10 times and eight of them have come to teams who beat their scoring average in that matchup.
  • Cosby's Sleepers scored 154.02 points against a projected 166.98 and underachieved for the sixth time this season, including the last three weeks in a row.
  • Cosby's Sleepers has the longest current losing streak in the league, having lost four straight games.
  • The 21.92-point win by Eagles #1 beat the 4.71-point spread.
  • Although Eagles #1 won, it was no thanks to Dez Bryant, who scored 2.60 points and has now scored below his projection in three straight weeks.
  • Not going to name names, but some people here aren't pulling their weight. Forget it, T.J. Yeldon needs to step it up! He scored 9.20 points against a projected 16.06 in the win, and has now scored below his projection in three straight games.
  • Just because Robert Horry has seven NBA championship rings, doesn't mean he's one of the greats. Despite being on the winning team, Randall Cobb scored 7.40 points against a projected 10.51 and has now underachieved in three straight games.
  • Eagles #1 is leveraging their draft well. This week they got 89.2% of their points from players they drafted.

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.
