Smooth Moves by No Punt Intended

  • Expect to see some trade offers for DeAngelo Williams. He ranked third in the league in scoring with 27.30 points.
  • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just Allen Robinson posterizing opponents. He had the fourth-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 21.10 points.
  • Rob Gronkowski had the fourth-highest TE score in the league this week with 8.60 points.
  • Emmanuel Sanders exceeded scoring projections by 32.1%, with 12.70 points against a projected 9.61.
  • Apparently playing within themselves was good enough. No Punt Intended won despite having only 3 of their 9 starters exceed their projected points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Remember this moment, Rattlesnakes. This is the moment where you turn your team around and start managing like someone worthy of the Hall.
  • Whoever gave you this advice, you might want to lose their number. Picked up and started Cameron Artis-Payne, who then scored below his 9.70-point projection with 5.60 points.
  • Rattlesnakes had 7 of their 9 starters score less than their projected points.
  • A heated blanket would be a great gift for the Denver Broncos Defense during this cold streak. They scored below their projection in three straight games after scoring 5.00 points against a projected 9.66 this week.
  • The RBs on Rattlesnakes let them down, getting outgunned by the RBs on No Punt Intended 34.80 - 12.70.

What If

  • If No Punt Intended played Rattlesnakes every week, they'd be 12-4 this year.
  • No Punt Intended would have beaten four other teams besides Rattlesnakes this week.
  • Had they played each other last week, No Punt Intended would have defeated Rattlesnakes 108.70 - 53.24.
  • If they played the same schedule as Rattlesnakes, No Punt Intended would be 9-5.
  • If No Punt Intended had played every team in the league each week, they would be 99-41.
  • Besides No Punt Intended, Rattlesnakes would have been defeated by four other teams this week.
  • Rattlesnakes would be 9-5 if they played the same schedule as No Punt Intended.
  • If they played every team every week, Rattlesnakes would be 85-55.

Game Notes

  • The 24.82-point win by No Punt Intended beat the 12.37-point spread.
  • Just because Robert Horry has seven NBA championship rings, doesn't mean he's one of the greats. Despite being on the winning team, Doug Martin scored 7.50 points against a projected 13.02 and has now underachieved in three straight games.
  • No Punt Intended won despite failing to reach their projected point total, improving to 3-3 when doing so. Rattlesnakes also failed to reach their point expectation and falls to 1-5 in such games.
  • In the loss, Brandon Marshall ranked sixth in the league in scoring, beating his scoring projection by 116.9%, the seventh-highest percentage in the league.
  • The 77.58 points scored by Rattlesnakes was below their average points per matchup of 98.30.
  • No Punt Intended got 34.80 points from their RBs, the second-highest combined scoring output from the RB position for any team this week.
  • Ben Roethlisberger, who had the highest projected points in the matchup, fell short of scoring projections with 5.80 points against a projected 21.66.
  • The Carolina Panthers Defense failed to meet their projected point total, scoring only 5.00 points of their projected 10.25.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 16

Stephone Paige KC - WR 1985 vs. San Diego 8 catches, 309 yards, 2 TDs In the past 65 years, only three NFL receivers have managed to surpass 300 receiving yards in a game, and only one of them (Paige in Week 16 of ’85) was able to pad his fantasy line with multiple scores.

Paige’s mammoth outing against the Chargers goes down as the second-best Week 16 fantasy line of all-time (only Jerry Rice in ’95 did him better). It was also the only time in the first 60 games of Paige’s career that he would top even 100 receiving yards.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
