They also got the second-highest point total in the league this week. This win served Urban Legends a cold dish of revenge after they won a Week 4 matchup, 148.25 to 141.61. For Urban Legends, Drew Brees and Devonta Freeman played the roles of Maverick and Goose, scoring 27.80 and 26.50 points, respectively.

Smooth Moves by Big Dawgs

  • A higher score than your opponent is a guaranteed way to win each week. Thank the Toyota Hall of Fame for that valuable insight.
  • Just call him Fred Flintstone, because he was toting the rock all day long. David Johnson had 38.50 points, the highest RB score of the week and the fifth-highest RB score in the league this season.
  • What do Apache helicopters, F-117 Nighthawks and Jordy Nelson have in common? They are all dangerous aerial weapons. He ranked second in the league in scoring among WRs this week with 25.80 points.
  • Steven Hauschka scored a season-high 16.00 points and beat his scoring projection by a season-high 55.0%.
  • Apparently playing within themselves was good enough. Big Dawgs won despite having only 3 of their 10 starters exceed their projected points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Some teams are destined to beat teams like Urban Legends and move on to Toyota Hall of Fame greatness. Ironically, you are included in that destiny, because you played yourself.
  • This is one of those mistakes that you continuously think about for ten years. Did not start Derek Carr, who scored 36.90 points to rank sixth in the league in scoring.
  • With 0.66 points, the Buffalo Bills Defense was last on the team in scoring and got only 4.8% of their 13.86 projected points, their lowest percentage of the season.
  • With 8.00 points against a projected 10.56, Kwon Alexander did not meet his projection for the fifth straight game.
  • It's times like these when it's important to support your players when they're down. So move the mouse pointer away from the DROP button. Drew Brees scored a season-low 27.80 points, 73.7% of his projected 37.72, which is his lowest percentage of the year.

What If

  • Big Dawgs would be 9-4 if they played Urban Legends every week.
  • Big Dawgs would have beaten seven other teams besides Urban Legends this week.
  • Had they played each other last week, Big Dawgs would have defeated Urban Legends 195.67 - 144.06.
  • Big Dawgs would be 5-6 if they played the same schedule as Urban Legends.
  • Big Dawgs would be 71-46 if they played every team every week.
  • Besides Big Dawgs, Urban Legends would have been defeated by five other teams this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Big Dawgs, Urban Legends would be 6-5.
  • Urban Legends would be 48-69 if they played every team every week.

Game Notes

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.
