    Smooth Moves by Bush

    • We won't judge you if you want to bow to Andrew Luck. He ranked eighth in the league in scoring with 40.20 points.
    • Put WR Doug Baldwin on the bench, where he scored 0.60 points, fewer than any WR in the starting lineup.
    • Took the Detroit Lions Defense out of the starting lineup, which scored 3.00 points on the bench, fewer than the starting DEF.
    • The 19.70 points scored by Anquan Boldin was the fifth-highest score by a WR in the league this week.
    • Do you put a LB or DB on him? You might have to put both on him if this continues. Jason Witten scored 9.00 points to rank third among TEs in the league this week.

    Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 12

    Fred Taylor JAC - RB 2000 vs. Pittsburgh 33 touches, 248 total yards, 4 TDs Fred Taylor earned the nickname "Fragile" because of the frequency of which he would land on the NFL injury report.

    But when he was healthy, he was a sight to behold. And the pinnacle of his career was in Week 12 of '12, when he rolled up the Pittsburgh defense for 248 yards and four touchdowns. For fantasy owners, it was an amazing time to own the Jacksonville back. After sitting out the first three games of that season (we mentioned that he was fragile, right?), he returned to post modest numbers in his his three games back in the lineup. But his 10 game run to close out the '00 campaign is the stuff of legend. From Weeks 7-16, Taylor went straight games with at least 100 rushing yards. And over the final seven games of the season, he amassed a whopping 13 TDs, including a hat trick+1 in Week 12 and another hat trick (and 181 rushing yards) two weeks later.
    Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
