Smooth Moves by Grandma AlaBAMa

  • Julio Jones seemed to take offense to this week's projected points. He ranked seventh in the league in scoring and beat his scoring projection by 110.0%, the eighth-highest percentage in the league.
  • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just Brandin Cooks posterizing opponents. He had the fifth-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 19.30 points.
  • Adrian Peterson put the team on his back with 17.90 points, the fifth-highest score among RBs in the league this week.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Remember that time you thought, "I don't need help from your stinking articles. I can beat Grandma AlaBAMa on my own." How'd it work out for you?
  • Did not start Frank Gore, who scored 21.50 points, surpassing his projected points by 114.2%, the seventh-highest percentage in the league.
  • Whoever gave you this advice, you might want to lose their number. Picked up and started Kamar Aiken, who then scored below his 9.58-point projection with 6.60 points.
  • The 12.14 points scored by Tom Brady was a season-low. He had a projected 20.60-point total, and has now underachieved in three straight games.
  • Man Eating Squirrel had 5 of their 9 starters score less than their projected points.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 16

Stephone Paige KC - WR 1985 vs. San Diego 8 catches, 309 yards, 2 TDs In the past 65 years, only three NFL receivers have managed to surpass 300 receiving yards in a game, and only one of them (Paige in Week 16 of ’85) was able to pad his fantasy line with multiple scores.

Paige’s mammoth outing against the Chargers goes down as the second-best Week 16 fantasy line of all-time (only Jerry Rice in ’95 did him better). It was also the only time in the first 60 games of Paige’s career that he would top even 100 receiving yards.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
