    Smooth Moves by Mean Machine

    • Odell Beckham Jr. led the league in scoring and had the sixth-most points in the league this season with 42.30.
    • Mean Machine won despite having only 2 of their 9 starters exceed their projected points.
    • There are rumors that the military wants to model a new all-terrain vehicle based off of Giovani Bernard. He had the 10th-highest score among RBs in the league this week with 13.30 points.
    • Even with a zero from starter Julio Jones, Mean Machine was still able to win.

    Toyota Roster Tune-up

    • Yes, your team could have been better. But if you haven't gotten behind the wheel of the bold new Camry yet, that's your real missed opportunity.
    • Should have started Coby Fleener, who underachieved, but still had more points than the starting TE with 5.20 against a projected 10.68.
    • All that glitters is not gold. Picked up Mohamed Sanu, who scored 1.40 points against his projected 11.13.
    • A heated blanket would be a great gift for Peyton Manning during this cold streak. He scored below his projection in three straight games after scoring 13.02 points against a projected 23.21 this week.
    • The 5.00 points scored by Adam Vinatieri was a season-low for both scoring and for his performance against projections. He reached only 66.1% of his 7.56 projected points this week.

    What If

    • Mean Machine would be 8-6 if they played Delta Force every week.
    • Mean Machine would have beaten seven other teams besides Delta Force this week.
    • If they played the same schedule as Delta Force, Mean Machine would be 4-7.
    • Mean Machine would be 98-56 if they played every team every week.

    Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 15

    Jamaal Charles KC - RB 2013 vs. Oakland 16 touches, 215 total yards, 5 TDs In hindsight, it's hard to believe that Charles' greatest fantasy effort of his career came on a day when he rushed for just 20 yards.

    Such was the case in Week 15 of '13, as Charles managed to gain just 20 rushing yards on eight carries at Oakland. But there's more than one way for a fantasy running back to skin a cat, and for Charles, this day was all about the passing game. Catching all eight of his intended targets from QB Alex Smith, Charles turned those grabs into an electric 195 receiving yards and four scores. He would tack on a rushing score to finish that crucial fantasy playoff week with more than twice as many fantasy points than any other running back that week.
    Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
