Smooth Moves by Funginas

  • Special teams just got a bit more special this week, thanks to Graham Gano. His 19 points was the highest total among kickers for the week and the fifth-highest K score in the league this season.
  • Eric Decker overachieved by 26.3%, scoring 12 points against a projected 9.50.
  • Funginas won despite having only 4 of their 9 starters exceed their scoring projection.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • If only we provided some kind of tool, like weekly articles, that would help Killer TightEnd secure a victory. Oh, WAIT, we do.
  • Did not start Jarvis Landry, who led the team in scoring with 22 points and beat his projected point total by 127.5%, the highest percentage on the team.
  • 7 of the 9 starters scored less than their projected points.
  • A heated blanket would be a great gift for Mark Ingram during this cold streak. He scored below his projection in four straight games after scoring 9 points against a projected 13.30 this week.
  • At the QB position, Killer TightEnd got outscored 28 - 2 by Funginas.

What If

  • If Funginas played Killer TightEnd every week, they'd be 5-6-1 this year.
  • Funginas would have beaten only one other team besides Killer TightEnd this week.
  • Had they played each other last week, Funginas would have defeated Killer TightEnd 94 - 72.
  • If they played the same schedule as Killer TightEnd, Funginas would be 5-5.
  • If Funginas had played every team in the league each week, they would be 50-80-2.
  • Besides Funginas, Killer TightEnd would have been defeated by nine other teams this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Funginas, Killer TightEnd would be 3-7.
  • Killer TightEnd would be 62-69-1 if they played every team every week.

  • Killer TightEnd could not extend their three-game win streak.
  • Funginas had two starters score more points than the highest-scoring starter for Killer TightEnd.
  • Although Funginas won, it was no thanks to Darren McFadden, who scored 7 points and has now scored below his projection in five straight weeks.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 12

Kellen Winslow SD - TE 1981 vs. Oaklan 13 catches, 144 yards, 5 TDs While Winslow is probably best remembered for his grueling, heroic effort in a 41-38 overtime victory against Miami in the playoffs of the ’81 season (13 catches, 166 yards, TD), it was his Week 12 performance of that same year (5 TDs at Oakland) that goes down as not only the best statistical tally of his career, but the best fantasy performance by a tight end since at least the AFL/NFL merger of 1970.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
