Smooth Moves by McKerrow Crows

  • If this were a dream sequence, you'd hear a deep voice announce, "McKerrow Crows, the Toyota Hall of Famer." But it's not.
  • Wisely sat Cam Newton this week, who had 26.30 points, the lowest QB score on the team.
  • Put WR Willie Snead on the bench, where he scored 5.80 points, fewer than any WR in the starting lineup.
  • Jordan Howard scored 29.70 points, which ranked third out of all the RBs in the league this week.
  • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just Julian Edelman posterizing opponents. He had the 10th-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 18.10 points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Sometimes 122.45 is enough. Unfortunately, the Toyota Hall of Fame has confirmed this time it's a smaller number than 164.63.
  • Left Terrance West on the bench, where he scored 22.80 points to beat his scoring projection by 125.5%, the sixth-highest percentage in the league.
  • Picked up the New York Jets Defense, which scored 3.40 points, just 21.0% of their scoring projection, which was the lowest percentage in the matchup.
  • All that glitters is not gold. Picked up Nick Folk, who scored 5.00 points against his projected 11.17.
  • The best offense is a good defense. Chicken Dinner got beat 30.32 - 3.40 by McKerrow Crows at the DEF position.

What If

  • If McKerrow Crows played Chicken Dinner every week, they would be 6-7 this season.
  • Besides Chicken Dinner, McKerrow Crows would have defeated six other teams this week.
  • Were they resting their players for this week? McKerrow Crows would have defeated Chicken Dinner 205.04 - 150.17 had they played each other last week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Chicken Dinner, McKerrow Crows would be 5-6.
  • McKerrow Crows would be 63-54 if they played every team every week.
  • Chicken Dinner would have been beaten by every other team in the league this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as McKerrow Crows, Chicken Dinner would be 6-5.

Game Notes

  • Chicken Dinner was last in the league in scoring for the second time this season.
  • Chicken Dinner underachieved for the sixth time this season, including the last three weeks in a row, scoring 122.45 points against a projected 153.38 this week.
  • Chicken Dinner could not extend their five-game win streak.
  • We don't condone cheating, but this group of wide receivers might want to spray Stickum on their gloves. The 22.80 total points by the WRs on Chicken Dinner was their lowest WR output this season.
  • With the win, McKerrow Crows snapped their five-game losing streak.
  • Greg Olsen did little to help McKerrow Crows, underperforming versus projections for the fourth straight game with 6.00 points against a projected 15.50.
  • Just because Robert Horry has seven NBA championship rings, doesn't mean he's one of the greats. Despite being on the winning team, Alec Ogletree scored 8.50 points against a projected 15.22 and has now underachieved in 10 straight games.
  • The draft continues to pay off for McKerrow Crows, which got 76.8% of their points from players they drafted.

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.
