    Smooth Moves by Michael's Team

    • With 26.60 points, Jordy Nelson ranked third in the league in scoring among WRs this week.
    • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just Percy Harvin posterizing opponents. He had the eighth-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 18.70 points.
    • Matt Forte put the team on his back with 16.00 points, the eighth-highest score among RBs in the league this week.
    • This is the bar, and this is the team jumping over it. Michael's Team had 5 of their 9 starters exceed their projected points.
    • Even with a zero from starter Kirk Cousins, Michael's Team was still able to win.

    Toyota Roster Tune-up

    • Sabo's Splendid Team should have scored more than 104.80 in order to win. That's Hall Of Fame level insight. 
    • Should have started Tony Romo, who underachieved, but still had more points than the starting QB with 20.00 against a projected 20.09.
    • Sabo's Splendid Team was faced with 2 starters coming up empty in points.
    • Michael's Team saw their RBs beat those on Sabo's Splendid Team 24.90 - 3.00.
    • It's times like these when it's important to support your players when they're down. So move the mouse pointer away from the DROP button. Drew Brees scored a season-low 13.00 points, 56.2% of his projected 23.15, which is his lowest percentage of the year.

    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.
