Smooth Moves by FIVEOFOURS

  • Even if you cried trying to win, you still won. And the Toyota Hall of Fame is proud of FIVEOFOURS either way.
  • Added Cameron Meredith, who exceeded his scoring projection by a matchup-leading 131.7%.
  • Benched Marcus Mariota, who had the lowest QB score on the team with 7.26 points.
  • Put WR Mike Wallace on the bench, where he scored 4.84 points, fewer than any WR in the starting lineup.
  • What do Apache helicopters, F-117 Nighthawks and Odell Beckham Jr. have in common? They are all dangerous aerial weapons. He ranked fifth in the league in scoring among WRs this week with 17.00 points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • It's okay to regret not taking a sick day to study the Toyota Hall of Fame's articles. But it's not okay to do it again.
  • This is one of those mistakes that you continuously think about for ten years. Did not start Kirk Cousins, who scored 22.80 points to rank eighth in the league in scoring.
  • Olivier Vernon was last in the matchup in scoring with 2.00 points against a projected 4.17 and underachieved for the first time this season.
  • HOTBOYZ could have used more points at WR, where FIVEOFOURS outscored them 35.40 - 16.16.
  • 8 of the starters on HOTBOYZ scored less than their projected points.

What If

  • If FIVEOFOURS played HOTBOYZ every week, they'd be 6-9 this season.
  • FIVEOFOURS would have beaten three other teams besides HOTBOYZ this week.
  • FIVEOFOURS would be 7-5 if they played the same schedule as HOTBOYZ.
  • If FIVEOFOURS had played every team in the league each week, they would be 59-45.
  • HOTBOYZ would have lost to just two other teams besides FIVEOFOURS this week.
  • Timing really is everything. FIVEOFOURS would have lost to HOTBOYZ 107.38 - 84.66 had they played each other last week.
  • If they played the same schedule as FIVEOFOURS, HOTBOYZ would be 7-5.
  • If they played every team every week, HOTBOYZ would be 67-34.

Game Notes

  • Don't you hate that person that always has to one-up everybody? HOTBOYZ scored 119.78 points and lost. It is the ninth-highest losing score in the league this season.
  • The margin of victory of 9.40 points was the smallest in the league this week.
  • This must be how Jay Leno feels with a garage full of high-performance cars. HOTBOYZ got a combined 38.92 points from their RBs, their highest combined scoring output from the RB position this season.
  • FIVEOFOURS outdid their projection in the win, while HOTBOYZ came in under their point expectation. FIVEOFOURS is now 5-0 when overachieving, while HOTBOYZ falls to 5-4 when failing to reach their projection.
  • With 129.18 points, FIVEOFOURS scored the second-most points in the league this week.

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.
