    Maybe Evan's Terrific Team will be able to figure out what the phrase "by the skin of my teeth" means after this narrow victory, edging Zach's Team 56.58 to 54.32 to remain undefeated in head-to-head matchups. Tom Brady put up 20.38 points and was the deciding factor. It was about the same as his 20.98 points in the last matchup with Zach's Team.

Evan's Terrific Team won 87.78 to 55.40 in Week 5, and now has a 17.32-point average margin of victory over Zach's Team.

    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.

    • The Cincinnati Bengals Defense was last in the league in scoring and had a season-low -4.00 points.

    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).
