Team Getting Whupped (7-5, 999 points) was probably the playground king growing up. They put up the second-highest point total this week, taking down A-$1 (7-5, 1,021 points) 103 to 101 in a seesaw battle. A-$1 was the first to put up points and by Sunday was already out in front 41 to 0. That advantage slipped away like a wet fish after the early Sunday games, and they trailed by 28. The lead switched direction again after the Sunday night game, and A-$1 had a 101 to 87 edge. However, Team Getting Whupped pulled out the victory with a comeback on Monday night.

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.
