    Smooth Moves by Manders's Team

    • Manders's Team saw their second-largest single-week point total by a player this season with Matt Ryan scoring 32.30 points. The score was also high enough to rank third in the league.
    • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just Jordy Nelson posterizing opponents. He had the third-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 26.60 points.
    • There are rumors that the military wants to model a new all-terrain vehicle based off of Matt Forte. He had the seventh-highest score among RBs in the league this week with 16.00 points.
    • The Denver Broncos Defense overachieved by 83.8%, scoring 11.00 points against a projected 5.98.
    • Apparently playing within themselves was good enough. Manders's Team won despite having only 4 of their 9 starters exceed their projected points.

    Toyota Roster Tune-up

    • Remember that thing Danielle's Team did instead of reading the expert articles from the Hall Of Fame? Shouldn't have done that. 
    • Well, that's embarrassing. Left Jay Cutler on the bench, where he ranked 10th in the league in scoring with 27.54 points.
    • Did not start Mike Evans, who scored 16.50 points and beat his projected point total by a team-leading 64.8%.
    • Cordarrelle Patterson has now underachieved in five straight games after scoring a matchup-low -1.40 points against a projected 2.60.
    • This is how people lose everything in casinos. Danielle's Team thought their luck would change and went back to the well with Randall Cobb. However, he scored 5.70 points against a projected 11.58 and has now underachieved in three straight games.

    What If

    • Manders's Team would be 5-9 if they played Danielle's Team every week.
    • Besides Danielle's Team, Manders's Team would have defeated five other teams this week.
    • If they played the same schedule as Danielle's Team, Manders's Team would be 8-4.
    • If Manders's Team had played every team in the league each week, they would be 65-61.
    • Danielle's Team would have lost to three other teams besides Manders's Team this week.
    • And they say procrastination doesn't pay off! Had they played each other last week, Manders's Team would have lost to Danielle's Team 101.30 - 85.34.
    • Danielle's Team would be 7-5 if they played the same schedule as Manders's Team.
    • If they played every team every week, Danielle's Team would be 78-48.

    Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 14

    Drew Bennett TEN - WR 2004 vs. Kansas City 12 catches, 233 receiving yards, 3 Anyone who owned Bennett in '04 doesn't need to be reminded of his epic late-season run with the Titans – it was truly a December to remember.

    Perhaps the greatest three-week stretch by a fantasy wide receiver in NFL history, Bennett combined for 28 catches, 517 receiving yards and eight touchdowns from Weeks 13-15, with his eight receiving scores over three games tying Jerry Rice for an NFL record. And in that amazing run, Week 14 stands tall as his best effort of the bunch (233 yards, three touchdowns).
    Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
