Smooth Moves by daisy's Team

  • Do you put a LB or DB on him? You might have to put both on him if this continues. Rob Gronkowski scored 14.80 points to rank third among TEs in the league this week.
  • With 10.00 points, Jeremy Hill ranked eighth in scoring among all RBs in the league this week.
  • 6 of 9 players in the starting lineup for daisy's Team topped their projected points.
  • DeSean Jackson scored 12.60 points and beat his scoring projection by 54.2%, which led the team.
  • Even with a zero from starter the Buffalo Bills Defense, daisy's Team was still able to win.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Some people are born losers, others develop it over time. Fortunately, there's a cure: Winning
  • This is one of those mistakes that you continuously think about for ten years. Did not start Derek Carr, who scored 23.70 points to rank 10th in the league in scoring.
  • Acquired and benched Jeremy Maclin, who scored 22.00 points and beat his projected point total by 156.4%, the seventh-highest percentage in the league.
  • Left Julius Thomas on the bench, where he scored 17.60 points and beat his projected point total by 160.2%, the fifth-highest percentage in the league this week.
  • Should have started the Denver Broncos Defense, which underachieved, but still had more points than the starting DEF with 5.00 against a projected 6.11.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 12

Kellen Winslow SD - TE 1981 vs. Oaklan 13 catches, 144 yards, 5 TDs While Winslow is probably best remembered for his grueling, heroic effort in a 41-38 overtime victory against Miami in the playoffs of the ’81 season (13 catches, 166 yards, TD), it was his Week 12 performance of that same year (5 TDs at Oakland) that goes down as not only the best statistical tally of his career, but the best fantasy performance by a tight end since at least the AFL/NFL merger of 1970.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
