    Smooth Moves by Detroit Lions

    • Jamaal Charles put the team on his back with 24.10 points, the fifth-highest score among RBs in the league this week.
    • There are rumors that the military wants to model a new all-terrain vehicle based off of Arian Foster. He had the eighth-highest score among RBs in the league this week with 21.80 points.
    • With 29.02 points, Matthew Stafford led the team in scoring and beat his projected point total by 54.9%, his highest percentage of the season.
    • Detroit Lions had most of their starters beat their scoring projection (5 out of 9).
    • Heath Miller exceeded scoring projections by 20.1%, with 8.60 points against a projected 7.16.

    Toyota Roster Tune-up

    • Team Funny should have scored more than 122.88 in order to win. That's Hall Of Fame level insight. 
    • This is how people lose everything in casinos. Team Funny thought their luck would change and went back to the well with Brandon Marshall. However, he scored 7.60 points against a projected 13.59 and has now underachieved in three straight games.
    • The 3.46 points scored by the Miami Dolphins Defense fell short of their 7.34-point projection, the fourth straight game where that has happened.
    • Jonas Gray was last in the matchup in scoring, finishing below his projection for the second time this season with 0.90 points against a projected 2.10.
    • At the DEF position, Team Funny got outscored 11.26 - 3.46 by Detroit Lions.

    What If

    • Detroit Lions would be 7-7 if they played Team Funny every week.
    • Detroit Lions would have beaten three other teams besides Team Funny this week.
    • Were they resting their players for this week? Detroit Lions would have defeated Team Funny 148.93 - 83.99 had they played each other last week.
    • If they played the same schedule as Team Funny, Detroit Lions would be 4-8.
    • If Detroit Lions had played every team in the league each week, they would be 58-68.
    • Besides Detroit Lions, Team Funny would have been defeated by seven other teams this week.
    • Team Funny would be 4-8 if they played the same schedule as Detroit Lions.
    • Team Funny would be 50-76 if they played every team every week.

    Game Notes

    • Looks like teams bring their A game when they see them on the schedule. Of the losses Team Funny has had, seven were against opponents who topped their season scoring average that week.
    • Team Funny has the longest current losing streak in the league, having lost three straight games.
    • The 22.30-point win by Detroit Lions failed to cover the 23.20-point spread.
    • We don't condone cheating, but this group of wide receivers might want to spray Stickum on their gloves. The 11.90 total points by the WRs on Detroit Lions was their lowest WR output this season.
    • Both teams topped their projections, but Team Funny performed better versus expectations than Detroit Lions and still lost.
    • Team Funny scored 100.58 points, ranking them ninth in the league in scoring.
    • The win saw Detroit Lions top their projected points, giving them a 6-1 record when beating their projection. Team Funny also overachieved and falls to 4-3 when doing so.
    • Team Funny is in last place in the standings, the eighth week that they have found themselves there this season.

    Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 14

    Drew Bennett TEN - WR 2004 vs. Kansas City 12 catches, 233 receiving yards, 3 Anyone who owned Bennett in '04 doesn't need to be reminded of his epic late-season run with the Titans – it was truly a December to remember.

    Perhaps the greatest three-week stretch by a fantasy wide receiver in NFL history, Bennett combined for 28 catches, 517 receiving yards and eight touchdowns from Weeks 13-15, with his eight receiving scores over three games tying Jerry Rice for an NFL record. And in that amazing run, Week 14 stands tall as his best effort of the bunch (233 yards, three touchdowns).
    Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
