Smooth Moves by Token

  • Reading this matchup recap is indicative of potential Toyota Hall of Famers. You're making Token look really good right now.
  • Token saw their second-largest single-week point total by a player this season with Russell Wilson scoring 74.35 points. The score was also high enough to rank second in the league.
  • The 40.50 points scored by Travis Kelce was the highest TE score in the league this week.

  • The 20.40 points by DeSean Jackson topped a projected 15.41, extending his overachievement streak to three weeks.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • This is one of those mistakes that you continuously think about for ten years. Did not start Colin Kaepernick, who scored 56.80 points to rank fifth in the league in scoring.
  • 323.35 seems a lot higher when you're on the losing side of it. And the Toyota Hall of Fame knows you know that.
  • Brandon LaFell was left on the bench, where he bested his expected 13.56-point total by putting up 31.50 points.
  • Casey Hayward was last in the matchup in scoring with 1.00 point against a projected 5.99 and has now underachieved in four straight games.
  • With 33.60 points against a projected 47.46, Matthew Stafford did not meet his projection for the third straight game.

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.
