    Smooth Moves by The Mustangs

    • Peyton Manning led the league in scoring and had the 18th-most points in the league this season with 36.08.

    Toyota Roster Tune-up

    • Taco Corp. may have missed the opportunity for a win, but they gained an opportunity to be mercilessly taunted by The Mustangs. 
    • Acquired and benched Jarvis Landry, who scored 17.00 points and beat his projected point total by 161.9%, the second-highest percentage in the league.

    • A heated blanket would be a great gift for Martellus Bennett during this cold streak. He scored below his projection in three straight games after scoring 3.70 points against a projected 8.04 this week.
    • Taco Corp. could have used more points from the TE position, where The Mustangs beat them 15.50 - 3.70.

    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.
