    Smooth Moves by Action Jackson

    • What do Apache helicopters, F-117 Nighthawks and Rueben Randle have in common? They are all dangerous aerial weapons. He ranked second in the league in scoring among WRs this week with 19.20 points.
    • Eddie Lacy put the team on his back with 16.40 points, the seventh-highest score among RBs in the league this week.
    • Antonio Brown scored 13.20 points, the seventh-highest WR score in the league this week.
    • Heath Miller had the fourth-highest TE score in the league this week with 6.80 points.
    • Apparently playing within themselves was good enough. Action Jackson won despite having only 3 of their 9 starters exceed their projected points.

    Toyota Roster Tune-up

    • Not reading the expert articles from the Hall Of Fame. And if they did, maybe they should pay better attention when they read.
    • Bulls On Parade had 7 of their 9 starters score less than their projected points.
    • A heated blanket would be a great gift for DeAndre Hopkins during this cold streak. He scored below his projection in three straight games after scoring 3.80 points against a projected 8.72 this week.
    • Bulls On Parade would have welcomed more points at WR, where Action Jackson topped them 34.50 - 15.60.
    • Jarvis Landry scored the fewest points on the team and scored below his projection for the third time this season with 1.10 points against a projected 6.79.

    What If

    • If Action Jackson played Bulls On Parade every week, they would be 10-6 this season.
    • Besides Bulls On Parade, Action Jackson would have defeated three other teams this week.
    • Had they played each other last week, Action Jackson would have defeated Bulls On Parade 91.50 - 73.60.
    • Action Jackson would be 8-5 if they played the same schedule as Bulls On Parade.
    • If Action Jackson had played every team in the league each week, they would be 78-60-2.
    • Besides Action Jackson, Bulls On Parade would have been defeated by three other teams this week.
    • Bulls On Parade would be 7-6 if they played the same schedule as Action Jackson.
    • If they played every team every week, Bulls On Parade would be 66-74.

    Game Notes

    • Action Jackson was able to cover the 0.42-point spread in the win.
    • We don't condone cheating, but this group of wide receivers might want to spray Stickum on their gloves. The 15.60 total points by the WRs on Bulls On Parade was their lowest WR output this season.
    • After scoring 13.00 points against a projected 6.81, the Seattle Seahawks Defense has now exceeded their projection in five straight weeks.
    • Shayne Graham did little to help Action Jackson, underperforming versus projections for the sixth straight game with 2.00 points against a projected 8.90.
    • Just because Robert Horry has seven NBA championship rings, doesn't mean he's one of the greats. Despite being on the winning team, the Philadelphia Eagles Defense scored 6.00 points against a projected 9.95 and has now underachieved in three straight games.
    • Action Jackson is leveraging their draft well. This week they got 83.5% of their points from players they drafted.
    • Randy Bullock scored 19.00 points, the fourth-highest K score in the league this season, but it was not enough to tip the scales in favor of Bulls On Parade.
    • Action Jackson is now 6-5 when failing to reach their projection and Bulls On Parade falls to 3-7 when scoring below their projected total.

    Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 16

    Onterrio Smith MIN - RB 2003 vs. Kansas City 25 touches, 183 total yards, 3 TDs Smith became one of the unlikeliest heroes of fantasy championship week when, in Week 16 of his rookie '03 campaign, he busted out for 146 rushing yards and three ground scores against the Chiefs.

    His NFL career would come to an end just 14 games later, with only four more touchdowns to add to his career bottom line. And he would never again reach the century mark in rushing yards. But he surely left a lasting impression on all those fantasy owners that gambled on him in Week 16 of '03 and were rewarded with title hardware.
    Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
