    Smooth Moves by soniasan

    • Expect to see some trade offers for Demaryius Thomas. He ranked seventh in the league in scoring with 23.30 points.
    • The 18.90 points scored by Julian Edelman was the sixth-highest score by a WR in the league this week.
    • The 11.00 points scored by the Detroit Lions Defense outpaced their 9.05-point scoring projection by 21.5%.
    • soniasan won despite having only 3 of their 9 starters exceed their scoring projection.
    • Wow, I guess RBs really don't matter much. soniasan won even though both of their RBs scored below their projected points.

    Toyota Roster Tune-up

    • The Mexican should get prescription glasses. At least we assume that's why they didn't bother reading the expert articles from the Toyota Hall Of Fame.
    • Should have started Philip Rivers, who underachieved, but still had more points than the starting QB with 11.58 against a projected 19.50.
    • A heated blanket would be a great gift for Matt Forte during this cold streak. He scored below his projection in three straight games after scoring 10.90 points against a projected 22.67 this week.
    • 8 of the 9 starters scored less than their projected points.
    • The WRs on The Mexican let them down, resulting in a 52.40 - 17.20 difference at the position.

    What If

    • soniasan would be 9-6 if they played The Mexican every week.
    • soniasan would have beaten five other teams besides The Mexican this week.
    • soniasan would be 9-4 if they played the same schedule as The Mexican.
    • If soniasan had played every team in the league each week, they would be 76-53.
    • Besides soniasan, The Mexican would have been defeated by six other teams this week.
    • Timing really is everything. soniasan would have lost to The Mexican 125.38 - 118.86 had they played each other last week.
    • If they played the same schedule as soniasan, The Mexican would be 5-8.
    • If they played every team every week, The Mexican would be 57-72.

    Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 15

    Jamaal Charles KC - RB 2013 vs. Oakland 16 touches, 215 total yards, 5 TDs In hindsight, it's hard to believe that Charles' greatest fantasy effort of his career came on a day when he rushed for just 20 yards.

    Such was the case in Week 15 of '13, as Charles managed to gain just 20 rushing yards on eight carries at Oakland. But there's more than one way for a fantasy running back to skin a cat, and for Charles, this day was all about the passing game. Catching all eight of his intended targets from QB Alex Smith, Charles turned those grabs into an electric 195 receiving yards and four scores. He would tack on a rushing score to finish that crucial fantasy playoff week with more than twice as many fantasy points than any other running back that week.
    Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
