Smooth Moves by Termiraiders

  • Did someone use the Super Mushroom power-up on Russell Wilson this week? Who posted the highest point total of any member on Termiraiders this season with 40 points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • You gave it the old college try. Unfortunately for you, this isn't college ball. This is professional football at the national level; you know the acronym.
  • Did not start Kamar Aiken, who scored 14 points and beat his projected point total by a team-leading 79.9%.
  • The 2 points scored by Dez Bryant fell short of his 10.00-point projection, the third straight game where that has happened.
  • The TE position was a letdown for NinjaBoot, where they were outscored 17 - 1 by Termiraiders.
  • The best offense is a good defense. NinjaBoot got beat 11 - 5 by Termiraiders at the DEF position.

What If

  • Termiraiders topped their point expectations for the third week in a row. They have now overperformed versus projections for the seventh time.

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.
