    Smooth Moves by Jeremy's Team

    • Jeremy's Team won despite having only 2 of their 9 starters exceed their projected points.
    • Torrey Smith scored 17.90 points, the fourth-highest WR score in the league this week.
    • With 17.58 points, Matt Ryan ranked fourth in the league this week in scoring among QBs.
    • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just Alshon Jeffery posterizing opponents. He had the 10th-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 13.20 points.
    • Even with both of their RBs falling short of their projected scores, Jeremy's Team still won.

    Toyota Roster Tune-up

    • Not reading the expert articles from the Hall Of Fame. And if they did, maybe they should pay better attention when they read.
    • Missed out on an opportunity by leaving the 17.80 points scored by Mike Wallace on the bench this week. He outperformed his projected point total by 134.4%, the seventh-highest percentage in the league.
    • John's Team left the 11.40 points scored by Charles Clay on the bench this week. He beat his projected point total by 105.9%, the 10th-highest percentage in the league.
    • Should have started Blair Walsh, who underachieved, but still had more points than the starting K with 9.00 against a projected 9.03.
    • Got beat by Jeremy's Team even though they had their lowest-scoring week of the season.

    What If

    • Jeremy's Team would be 10-6 if they played John's Team every week.
    • Jeremy's Team would have beaten only two other teams besides John's Team this week.
    • Were they resting their players for this week? Jeremy's Team would have defeated John's Team 90.20 - 81.00 had they played each other last week.
    • If they played the same schedule as John's Team, Jeremy's Team would be 8-5.
    • Jeremy's Team would be 91-49 if they played every team every week.
    • Besides Jeremy's Team, John's Team would have been defeated by four other teams this week.
    • John's Team would be 7-6 if they played the same schedule as Jeremy's Team.
    • If they played every team every week, John's Team would be 81-59.

    • With a combined 37.60 points from their WRs, Jeremy's Team got their highest combined scoring output from the WR position this season.
    • Not going to name names, but some people here aren't pulling their weight. Forget it, Julius Thomas needs to step it up! He scored 3.30 points against a projected 7.38 in the win, and has now scored below his projection in three straight games.
    • All of the points for Jeremy's Team this week came from players they drafted.
    • Jeremy's Team won even though John's Team performed better against their scoring projection. John's Team scored 95.5% of their 80.36 projected points, while Jeremy's Team recorded 74.5% of their 104.74-point projection.

    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.
