    Spartacus benefited from 41.25 points from Calvin Johnson and 28.45 from Matt Ryan to get the win over BleedsBroncoBlue 165.02 to 121.65. Spartacus (6-7) sits just two games back of BleedsBroncoBlue (8-5), but point totals show they should be happy with that because they are a lot further behind there, 1,896.27 to 1,663.10. A win is a win, but this one tastes just a bit sweeter for Spartacus who gets revenge for a 169.38 to 137.46 upset loss to BleedsBroncoBlue in Week 4.

    Smooth Moves by Spartacus

    • Calvin Johnson was uncoverable, scoring the second-most points by a WR this week with 41.25 points. It also ranks as the eighth-greatest game by a WR this season.
    • Do you put a LB or DB on him? You might have to put both on him if this continues. Martellus Bennett scored 21.63 points to rank second among TEs in the league this week.
    • There are rumors that the military wants to model a new all-terrain vehicle based off of Lamar Miller. He had the 10th-highest score among RBs in the league this week with 14.98 points.
    • Those were the projections? We thought that was the starting point. 5 of the 9 starters on Spartacus exceeded their projected points.
    • Matt Ryan exceeded scoring projections by 48.3%, with 28.45 points against a projected 19.18.

    Toyota Roster Tune-up

    • After that performance, we have to wonder if BleedsBroncoBlue cares about becoming a Hall Of Famer at all. That's right, you're being judged by an online recap. 
    • Left Roy Helu Jr. on the bench, where he scored 18.13 points and beat his projected point total by 134.8%, the fourth-highest percentage in the league this week.
    • 7 of the starters on BleedsBroncoBlue underperformed versus their projections.
    • A heated blanket would be a great gift for Chandler Catanzaro during this cold streak. He scored below his projection in three straight games after scoring 6.00 points against a projected 8.92 this week.
    • The TE position was a letdown for BleedsBroncoBlue, where they were outscored 21.63 - 7.50 by Spartacus.

    What If

    • Spartacus would be 3-10 if they played BleedsBroncoBlue every week.
    • Besides BleedsBroncoBlue, Spartacus would have defeated six other teams this week.
    • If they played the same schedule as BleedsBroncoBlue, Spartacus would be 2-9.
    • If Spartacus had played every team in the league each week, they would be 47-70.
    • BleedsBroncoBlue would have lost to six other teams besides Spartacus this week.
    • And they say procrastination doesn't pay off! Had they played each other last week, Spartacus would have lost to BleedsBroncoBlue 160.19 - 123.91.
    • BleedsBroncoBlue would be 7-4 if they played the same schedule as Spartacus.
    • If they played every team every week, BleedsBroncoBlue would be 69-48.

    Eric Decker DEN - WR 2013 vs. Kansas City 8 receptions, 174 yards, 4 TDs Week 13 of '13 was a very good day for fantasy wideouts, with Decker leadingthe way against the division-rival Chiefs with 174 receiving yards and four TD grabs, one short of an NFL record.

    Decker's individual fantasy effort was the best by a WR in '13, although he was pushed for top billing by Cleveland's Josh Gordon (261 yards, 2 TD) and Chicago's Alshon Jeffery (249 yards, 2 TD) in Week 13 - their single-game tallies also clocked in among the top 5 fantasy WR performances of the season.
    Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
