Iowa should pick up the bar tab for Flying squirrels or something, because they have their number in fantasy football. Iowa remained unbeaten against Flying squirrels by winning 151.80 to 118.02. With the win, they also clinched a playoff berth. Allen Robinson was the determining factor, garnering 43.30 points for Iowa. The last time these teams met, Adrian Peterson led with 19.40.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 13

Barry Sanders Det - RB 1991 vs. Minnesota 251 total yards, 4 TDs Sanders was one of the most exciting players to watch in NFL history, and the best performance of his Hall of Fame career, the only one that ranks among the 80 best fantasy lines of the past 45 years (13th best overall), is a 4-TD, 251-total yard heyday against Minnesota in Week 13 of ’91.

The 251 yards was the second-best single-game yards from scrimmage total of a career that would end with him as the NFL’s second all-time leading rusher (until Emmitt Smith eventually surpassed both him and then leader Walter Payton).
