Smooth Moves by /v\( ) |*( )||\|+$

  • Put this performance on the season's highlight reel. Cam Newton led all QBs in scoring this week with 40.44 points, also the fourth-highest QB score for the season.
  • Took Aaron Rodgers out of the starting lineup, who scored 27.52 points on the bench, fewer than the starting QB.
  • DeAngelo Williams put the team on his back with 19.00 points, the seventh-highest score among RBs in the league this week.
  • Apparently playing within themselves was good enough. /v\( ) |*( )||\|+$ won despite having only 4 of their 10 starters exceed their projected points.
  • The 9.50 points scored by the Arizona Cardinals Defense outpaced their 7.70-point scoring projection by 23.4%.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Tough week, OutofLuck. We can only assume that all your starters were on bye this week.
  • Whoever gave you this advice, you might want to lose their number. Picked up and started Kyle Rudolph, who then scored below his 6.79-point projection with 2.80 points.
  • At the QB position, OutofLuck got outscored 40.44 - 17.80 by /v\( ) |*( )||\|+$.
  • Alfred Morris was last on the team in scoring with 1.20 points against a projected 8.26 and underachieved for the eighth time this season.
  • The 4.00 points scored by Stephen Gostkowski was a season-low. He had a projected 8.30-point total, and has now underachieved in three straight games.

What If

  • If /v\( ) |*( )||\|+$ played OutofLuck every week, they'd be 8-5 this season.
  • /v\( ) |*( )||\|+$ would have beaten four other teams besides OutofLuck this week.
  • /v\( ) |*( )||\|+$ would be 6-5 if they played the same schedule as OutofLuck.
  • If /v\( ) |*( )||\|+$ had played every team in the league each week, they would be 56-61.
  • OutofLuck would have lost to six other teams besides /v\( ) |*( )||\|+$ this week.
  • And they say procrastination doesn't pay off! Had they played each other last week, /v\( ) |*( )||\|+$ would have lost to OutofLuck 133.78 - 120.28.
  • OutofLuck would be 6-5 if they played the same schedule as /v\( ) |*( )||\|+$.
  • OutofLuck would be 44-73 if they played every team every week.

Game Notes

  • The tragedy of being an underachiever is that /v\( ) |*( )||\|+$ knows what they should be, but reality keeps telling them that they're wrong. They scored 124.14 points against a projected 135.66 and underachieved for the seventh time this season, including the last four weeks in a row.
  • /v\( ) |*( )||\|+$ was able to win with little help from DeMarco Murray, who had a season-low 2.40 points and is on a four-week underperforming streak.
  • The 18.74-point margin of victory was the smallest in the league this week.
  • The loss snapped a three-game win streak by OutofLuck.
  • In the loss, DeSean Jackson scored 15.00 points against a projected 8.64 and has now overachieved in three straight games.
  • Blair Walsh did little to help /v\( ) |*( )||\|+$, underperforming versus projections for the third straight game with 1.00 point against a projected 8.75.
  • Not going to name names, but some people here aren't pulling their weight. Forget it, Alshon Jeffery needs to step it up! He scored 10.50 points against a projected 15.07 in the win, and has now scored below his projection in three straight games.
  • /v\( ) |*( )||\|+$ won even though OutofLuck performed better against their scoring projection. OutofLuck scored 97.6% of their 107.97 projected points, while /v\( ) |*( )||\|+$ recorded 91.5% of their 135.66-point projection.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 13

Barry Sanders Det - RB 1991 vs. Minnesota 251 total yards, 4 TDs Sanders was one of the most exciting players to watch in NFL history, and the best performance of his Hall of Fame career, the only one that ranks among the 80 best fantasy lines of the past 45 years (13th best overall), is a 4-TD, 251-total yard heyday against Minnesota in Week 13 of ’91.

The 251 yards was the second-best single-game yards from scrimmage total of a career that would end with him as the NFL’s second all-time leading rusher (until Emmitt Smith eventually surpassed both him and then leader Walter Payton).
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
