    Smooth Moves by BlitzGang

    • Shipped in the mercenaries, picking up the Baltimore Ravens Defense which scored 22.00 points to lead the matchup.
    • Expect to see some trade offers for Tony Romo. He ranked ninth in the league in scoring with 20.50 points.
    • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just Antonio Brown posterizing opponents. He had the sixth-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 13.30 points.
    • Mark Ingram put the team on his back with 11.90 points, the sixth-highest score among RBs in the league this week.
    • What do Apache helicopters, F-117 Nighthawks and Randall Cobb have in common? They are all dangerous aerial weapons. He ranked 10th in the league in scoring among WRs this week with 11.10 points.

    Toyota Roster Tune-up

    • For the Glory should have scored more than 108.90 in order to win. That's Hall Of Fame level insight. 
    • Should have started Jay Cutler, who underachieved, but still had more points than the starting QB with 16.76 against a projected 20.54.
    • 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. Adam Vinatieri scored a season-low 5.00 points, 62.3% of his projected 8.02, which is his lowest percentage of the year.
    • Of the 9 starters on For the Glory, 5 underperformed versus their projections.
    • Andrew Luck, who had the highest projected points in the matchup with 24.66, only scored 16.28 points.

    What If

    • If BlitzGang played For the Glory every week, they would be 10-5 this season.
    • Besides For the Glory, BlitzGang would have defeated five other teams this week.
    • If they played the same schedule as For the Glory, BlitzGang would be 10-3.
    • BlitzGang would be 83-50 if they played every team every week.
    • In addition to BlitzGang, For the Glory would have lost to just one other team this week.
    • Timing really is everything. BlitzGang would have lost to For the Glory 124.56 - 82.80 had they played each other last week.
    • If they played the same schedule as BlitzGang, For the Glory would be 6-7.
    • For the Glory would be 65-68 if they played every team every week.

    Game Notes

    • BlitzGang has had seven wins this year where their opponent beat their average score.
    • Looks like teams bring their A game when they see them on the schedule. Of the losses For the Glory has had, four were against opponents who topped their season scoring average that week.

    • BlitzGang won again and is on a four-game winning streak, currently the longest in the league.
    • For the Glory beat their scoring projection for the ninth time this season by scoring 107.68 points against a projected 99.97. They have now overachieved three weeks in a row.

    Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 15

    Jamaal Charles KC - RB 2013 vs. Oakland 16 touches, 215 total yards, 5 TDs In hindsight, it's hard to believe that Charles' greatest fantasy effort of his career came on a day when he rushed for just 20 yards.

    Such was the case in Week 15 of '13, as Charles managed to gain just 20 rushing yards on eight carries at Oakland. But there's more than one way for a fantasy running back to skin a cat, and for Charles, this day was all about the passing game. Catching all eight of his intended targets from QB Alex Smith, Charles turned those grabs into an electric 195 receiving yards and four scores. He would tack on a rushing score to finish that crucial fantasy playoff week with more than twice as many fantasy points than any other running back that week.
    Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
