  • Weekly Grade: B
  • 99

NinjaBoot remains unbeaten in two matchups against MVP with a 106 to 99 win. MVP is not a guaranteed win for NinjaBoot, who has an average margin of victory of 10 points when they play. That's a lot smaller than their 22.25-point average margin of victory for the season. Andy Dalton was the determining factor, putting up 25 points for NinjaBoot. The last time these teams met, the Denver Broncos Defense led with 22. With Jordan Cameron delivering zero points for NinjaBoot, it could have been worse. NinjaBoot beat MVP 86 to 73 in Week 2 and now averages 96.00 points against them.

Smooth Moves by NinjaBoot

  • The Denver Broncos Defense had 23 points, the highest DEF score of the week and the third-highest score among DEF in the league this season.
  • Not the best, but in the conversation. Andy Dalton ranked 10th in the league in scoring this week with 25 points. It was also the fifth-highest score of any player on NinjaBoot this season.
  • Benched RB Alfred Blue, who scored fewer points than any RB in the starting lineup with 1.
  • Matt Forte put the team on his back with 17 points, the third-highest score among RBs in the league this week.
  • Starter Jordan Cameron put up a zero, but NinjaBoot still won.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Fantasy Football is a mental sport. Using your brain is a great way to ensure success.
  • Well, that's embarrassing. Left Tyrod Taylor on the bench, where he ranked seventh in the league in scoring with 32 points.
  • With 2 points against a projected 6.02, Stefon Diggs was last on the team in scoring and has now scored below his projection in five straight games.
  • The best offense is a good defense. MVP got beat 23 - 9 by NinjaBoot at the DEF position.
  • MVP was not able to win even though only 4 of their 9 starters fell short of their projected point total.

What If

  • NinjaBoot would be 10-3 if they played MVP every week.
  • Besides MVP, NinjaBoot would have defeated seven other teams this week.
  • Had they played each other last week, NinjaBoot would have defeated MVP 76 - 74.
  • NinjaBoot would be 5-5-1 if they played the same schedule as MVP.
  • If NinjaBoot had played every team in the league each week, they would be 76-65-2.
  • Besides NinjaBoot, MVP would have been defeated by four other teams this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as NinjaBoot, MVP would be 1-10.
  • If they played every team every week, MVP would be 52-90-1.

Game Notes

  • Three of the four wins for NinjaBoot this season have come despite their opponent scoring higher than their season average.
  • Looks like teams bring their A game when they see them on the schedule. Of the losses MVP has had, four were against opponents who topped their season scoring average that week.
  • Don't you hate that guy that always has to one-up everybody? MVP scored 99 points and lost. It is the eighth-highest losing score in the league this season.
  • NinjaBoot was able to win with little help from Stephen Gostkowski, who had a season-low 4 points and is on a three-week underperforming streak.
  • NinjaBoot snapped their three-game losing streak with the win.
  • This must be how Jay Leno feels with a garage full of high-performance cars. NinjaBoot got a combined 36 points from their RBs, their highest combined scoring output from the RB position this season.
  • The margin of victory of 7 points was the smallest in the league this week.
  • Not going to name names, but some people here aren't pulling their weight. Forget it, Dez Bryant needs to step it up! He scored 6 points against a projected 8.22 in the win, and has now scored below his projection in four straight games.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 13

Barry Sanders Det - RB 1991 vs. Minnesota 251 total yards, 4 TDs Sanders was one of the most exciting players to watch in NFL history, and the best performance of his Hall of Fame career, the only one that ranks among the 80 best fantasy lines of the past 45 years (13th best overall), is a 4-TD, 251-total yard heyday against Minnesota in Week 13 of ’91.

The 251 yards was the second-best single-game yards from scrimmage total of a career that would end with him as the NFL’s second all-time leading rusher (until Emmitt Smith eventually surpassed both him and then leader Walter Payton).
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
