  • Weekly Grade

SAsonsabitches remains unbeaten in two matchups against Maniacs after a second narrow escape, this time by a final score of 178.02 to 174.50. Joe Flacco put up 58.93 points and was out there putting on a show. It was a lot better than his 37.78 points in the last matchup with Maniacs. Maniacs isn't an easy win for SAsonsabitches, who has an average margin of victory of 1.87 points when they play. That's much smaller than their 22.66-point average margin of victory for the season. Did Jason Witten receive a red card by not scoring a point? Wait, this is football, not soccer. Regardless, SAsonsabitches was still able to pull out the win, despite being a man down. SAsonsabitches beat Maniacs 138.19 to 137.97 in Week 2 and now averages 158.11 points against them.

Smooth Moves by SAsonsabitches

  • If this were a dream sequence, you'd hear a deep voice announce, "SAsonsabitches, the Toyota Hall of Famer." But it's not.
  • Try to beat that! Joe Flacco scored the most points of any player on SAsonsabitches this season with 58.93.
  • Put WR Cole Beasley on the bench, where he scored 2.96 points, fewer than any WR in the starting lineup.
  • The 16.71 points scored by Michael Crabtree was the fifth-highest score by a WR in the league this week.
  • The 16.00 points were a season-high for Steven Hauschka. The score beat his 8.63-point projection by 85.4%, which also was a season-high.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Sometimes 174.50 is enough. Unfortunately, the Toyota Hall of Fame has confirmed this time it's a smaller number than 178.02.
  • Did not start Sebastian Janikowski, who scored 15.00 points, surpassing his projected points by 114.6%, the fifth-highest percentage in the league.
  • With 6.00 points against a projected 17.47, the Philadephia Eagles Defense did not meet their projection for the sixth straight game.
  • The laces were in for Maniacs, who was outscored by SAsonsabitches at the K position, 16.00 - 3.00.
  • Maniacs was not able to win even though only 4 of their 9 starters fell short of their projected point total.

What If

  • If SAsonsabitches played Maniacs every week, they'd be 7-6 this season.
  • Besides Maniacs, SAsonsabitches would have defeated eight other teams this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Maniacs, SAsonsabitches would be 6-5.
  • If SAsonsabitches had played every team in the league each week, they would be 56-87.
  • In addition to SAsonsabitches, Maniacs would have lost to just two other teams this week.
  • Timing really is everything. SAsonsabitches would have lost to Maniacs 132.31 - 114.23 had they played each other last week.
  • If they played the same schedule as SAsonsabitches, Maniacs would be 7-4.
  • If they played every team every week, Maniacs would be 70-73.

Game Notes

  • Looks like teams bring their A game when they see them on the schedule. Of the losses Maniacs has had, five were against opponents who topped their season scoring average that week.
  • Although Maniacs lost, they did put up the eighth-highest score for a losing team in the league this season.
  • With the loss, Maniacs has the longest losing streak in the league, stretching back three straight games.
  • With a combined 44.84 points from their RBs, Maniacs got their highest combined scoring output from the RB position this season.
  • The margin of victory of 3.52 points was the smallest in the league this week.
  • Eat. Sleep. Beat the streak. SAsonsabitches was finally able to overcome their five-game losing streak with the win.
  • Theo Riddick did little to help SAsonsabitches, underperforming versus projections for the fourth straight game with 11.67 points against a projected 17.10.
  • Although SAsonsabitches won, it was no thanks to the Dallas Cowboys Defense, which scored 13.00 points and has now scored below their projection in five straight weeks.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 13

Josh Gordon Cle - WR 2013 vs. Jacksonville 10 catches, 261 yards, 2 touchdowns Gordon’s best game en route to being the top fantasy receiver in ’13 came in Week 13, when he lit up the Jaguars secondary for 261 yards and two scores.

It amounted to the third-best Week 13 fantasy output by a receiver since the AFL/NFL merger, but the most receiving yards. This outing contributed to a historic run for Gordon (from Weeks 11-14) in which he posted at least 125 receiving yards and a TD in four straight games. In fact, he owns NFL records in that stretch for most receiving yards over a two-, three- and four-game stretch, including becoming the first player to record 200-plus receiving yards in back-to-back weeks (Weeks 12-13)
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
