    Smooth Moves by Team Ram Rod

    • Expect to see some trade offers for Aaron Rodgers. He ranked seventh in the league in scoring with 50.60 points.
    • With 31.30 points, Jordy Nelson had the highest score of any WR in the league this week.
    • Sat Steve Smith Sr, who scored fewer points than any WR in the starting lineup with 9.90.
    • Joique Bell scored 16.70 points, which ranked eighth out of all the RBs in the league this week.
    • Did you use any black magic this week? Team Ram Rod was still able to pull out a win with only 4 of their 8 starters exceeding their projected points.

    Toyota Roster Tune-up

    • After that performance, we have to wonder if G-Men cares about becoming a Hall Of Famer at all. That's right, you're being judged by an online recap. 
    • Left Rueben Randle on the bench, where he exceeded his scoring projection by a league-leading 346.1%.
    • With 5.00 points against a projected 9.78, Steven Hauschka was last on the team in scoring and has now scored below his projection in three straight games.
    • Gotta hit rock button before you can start to rise. It was a season-low 11.80 points for DeMarco Murray this week. It was also a season-low for his performance versus projections, reaching only 59.7% of a projected point total of 19.78.
    • G-Men had 5 of their 8 starters score less than their projected points.

    What If

    • If Team Ram Rod played G-Men every week, they would be 12-4 this season.
    • Besides G-Men, Team Ram Rod would have beaten only two other teams this week.
    • Were they resting their players for this week? Team Ram Rod would have defeated G-Men 122.07 - 113.90 had they played each other last week.
    • If they played the same schedule as G-Men, Team Ram Rod would be 12-2.
    • Team Ram Rod would be 130-94 if they played every team every week.
    • G-Men would have lost to just four other teams besides Team Ram Rod this week.
    • G-Men would be 5-9 if they played the same schedule as Team Ram Rod.
    • If they played every team every week, G-Men would be 77-147.

    Game Notes

    • Team Ram Rod has won four times this year when their opponent scored higher than their season average.
    • In the loss, G-Men had their highest losing score of the season with 144.57 points.
    • The WRs on G-Men collectively had their best week of the season with 46.10 points.
    • Just because Robert Horry has seven NBA championship rings, doesn't mean he's one of the greats. Despite being on the winning team, Shane Vereen scored 6.00 points against a projected 16.44 and has now underachieved in six straight games.
    • G-Men falls to 0-2 in close games this season, remaining winless.
    • Team Ram Rod underachieved in the win, recording 89.2% of their projected 164.52, while G-Men performed better than expected, beating their 131.99-point projection by 9.5%.

    Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 16

    Onterrio Smith MIN - RB 2003 vs. Kansas City 25 touches, 183 total yards, 3 TDs Smith became one of the unlikeliest heroes of fantasy championship week when, in Week 16 of his rookie '03 campaign, he busted out for 146 rushing yards and three ground scores against the Chiefs.

    His NFL career would come to an end just 14 games later, with only four more touchdowns to add to his career bottom line. And he would never again reach the century mark in rushing yards. But he surely left a lasting impression on all those fantasy owners that gambled on him in Week 16 of '03 and were rewarded with title hardware.
    Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
