Smooth Moves by Cookie Monster

  • Made a good move in sitting Frank Gore this week. He brought in 3.70 points, the fewest of any RB on the team.
  • With 20.20 points, Odell Beckham Jr. ranked eighth in the league in scoring among WRs this week.
  • With 17.30 points, Antonio Gates ranked second in the league this week in scoring among TEs.
  • There are rumors that the military wants to model a new all-terrain vehicle based off of Javorius Allen. He had the seventh-highest score among RBs in the league this week with 14.40 points.
  • The 11.90 points by Ronnie Hillman topped a projected 8.48, extending his overachievement streak to three weeks.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Tough week, HydeTheSalami. We can only assume that all your starters were on bye this week.
  • Did not start Marcus Mariota, who led the team in scoring with 21.42 points.
  • HydeTheSalami had 7 of their 9 starters score less than their projected points.
  • A heated blanket would be a great gift for Todd Gurley during this cold streak. He scored below his projection in three straight games after scoring 3.00 points against a projected 12.43 this week.
  • With 3.60 points against a projected 8.34, Jason Witten did not meet his projection for the fifth straight game.

  • If they played the same schedule as Cookie Monster, HydeTheSalami would be 6-4.
  • HydeTheSalami would be 58-74 if they played every team every week.

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.
