    Montana, Brady, and Manning. Those are some of the names that Booger will be synonymous with after their comeback victory against BringYoDicks, overcoming a 7.46-point deficit on Sunday night, edging BringYoDicks 85.22 to 81.68. Booger picked up 23.90 points from Le'Veon Bell and 15.40 from Julian Edelman. The miniscule 3.54-point playoff victory was the ninth-smallest difference over all matchups this season. Booger goes to 2-1 head-to-head this season against BringYoDicks, avenging a Week 14 loss (114.06 to 106.52) the last time the teams met. With Jordan Matthews delivering zero points for Booger, the margin could have been bigger. BringYoDicks concluded the regular season in third place with a record of 8-6. Their record was a bit misleading, as they ranked just fifth in the league in scoring average at 98.88 points per game. This postseason, BringYoDicks was sent home quickly, losing in their only playoff game.

    Smooth Moves by Booger

    • Le'Veon Bell put up 23.90 points, which was the fifth-highest score in the league this week.
    • What do Apache helicopters, F-117 Nighthawks and Julian Edelman have in common? They are all dangerous aerial weapons. He ranked fifth in the league in scoring among WRs this week with 15.40 points.
    • Even with a zero from starter Jordan Matthews, Booger was still able to win.
    • With 13.00 points versus a projected 9.58, the Arizona Cardinals Defense exceeded their scoring projection by 35.7%.
    • Apparently playing within themselves was good enough. Booger won despite having only 4 of their 9 starters exceed their projected points.

    • BringYoDicks had 5 of their 9 starters score less than their projected points.
    • Calvin Johnson fell short of his scoring projection with 5.30 points, just 38.2% of his projected 13.87.

    What If

    • BringYoDicks would have lost to three other teams besides Booger this week.

    • BringYoDicks would be 7-5 if they played the same schedule as Booger.

    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.
