Smooth Moves by Carolina Killers

  • Even if you cried trying to win, you still won. And the Toyota Hall of Fame is proud of Carolina Killers either way.
  • Mike Evans scored 15.70 points, the seventh-highest WR score in the league this week.
  • There are rumors that the military wants to model a new all-terrain vehicle based off of Todd Gurley. He had the 10th-highest score among RBs in the league this week with 14.70 points.
  • The Kansas City Chiefs Defense has now overachieved in five straight games after scoring 10.00 points against a projected 7.96.
  • Apparently playing within themselves was good enough. Carolina Killers won despite having only 4 of their 9 starters exceed their projected points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Sometimes 85.86 is enough. Unfortunately, the Toyota Hall of Fame has confirmed this time it's a smaller number than 103.58.
  • Left Mark Ingram on the bench, where he scored 23.30 points, exceeding his scoring projection by 119.4%, the highest percentage in the matchup.
  • Had a chance to start Steve Smith Sr., who outdid his scoring projection of 8.84 points by scoring 15.90 points.
  • Jeremy Hill was last in the matchup in scoring and achieved only 6.4% of his projected point total, his lowest percentage of the season.
  • This is how people lose everything in casinos. Michael's Team thought their luck would change and went back to the well with the Oakland Raiders Defense. However, they scored 6.00 points against a projected 8.37 and has now underachieved in three straight games.

What If

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 16

Onterrio Smith Min - RB 2003 vs. Kansas City 183 yards from scrimmage, 3 touchdowns Smith has to go down as one of the most unlikely fantasy Championship Week heroes in the NFL’s modern era.

Leading up to his 146-rushing yard, three rushing TD outburst against the Chiefs, Smith had hinted at something special to come with a 148-yard rushing performance in Week 15 against the Bears. But, for a player that had tallied just two touchdowns in the previous 13 games he played that season, the TD hat trick was shocking. In fact, his two-week rushing total in Week 15-16 amount to 26 percent of his career rushing total, and he would go on to score just four more touchdowns in his next 12 games before his career came to an end.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
