    Smooth Moves by Jarrod's Team

    • This is the bar, and this is the team jumping over it. Jarrod's Team had 5 of their 9 starters exceed their projected points.

    Toyota Roster Tune-up

    • Remember that thing Belinda Greene did instead of reading the expert articles from the Hall Of Fame? Shouldn't have done that. 
    • Did not start the Buffalo Bills Defense, which ranked eighth in the league in scoring and beat their scoring projection by 133.2%, the fourth-highest percentage in the league.
    • This is one of those mistakes that you continuously think about for ten years. Did not start Tom Brady, who scored 20.96 points to rank 10th in the league in scoring.
    • Did not start Anquan Boldin, who scored 19.70 points, surpassing his projected points by 144.4%, the second-highest percentage in the league.
    • Andre Johnson has now failed to reach his projection for five straight games. This week he scored 3.60 points versus a projected 10.01.

    • If they played the same schedule as Jarrod's Team, Belinda Greene would be 7-3.
    • If they played every team every week, Belinda Greene would be 64-44.

    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.
