Smooth Moves by Old Razzle Dazzle

  • Old Razzle Dazzle scored massive brownie points with the Toyota Hall of Fame this week. Too bad brownie points don't count as real points. Not that you need help.
  • With 40.70 points, Le'Veon Bell ranked third in scoring among all RBs in the league this week.
  • With 30.50 points, Odell Beckham Jr. ranked eighth in the league in scoring among WRs this week.
  • Do you put a LB or DB on him? You might have to put both on him if this continues. Antonio Gates scored 25.90 points to rank second among TEs in the league this week.
  • Jordan Howard put the team on his back with 23.30 points, the ninth-highest score among RBs in the league this week.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Well, that's embarrassing. Left Sam Bradford on the bench, where he ranked third in the league in scoring with 67.60 points.
  • Left Adam Thielen on the bench, where he scored the sixth-most points in the league and beat his projected point total by 276.4%, the third-highest percentage in the league.
  • Sometimes 323.50 is enough. Unfortunately, the Toyota Hall of Fame has confirmed this time it's a smaller number than 340.85.
  • All that glitters is not gold. Picked up Sebastian Janikowski, who scored 1.00 point against his projected 8.70.
  • The 8.50 points scored by Alec Ogletree fell short of his 14.09-point projection, the 13th straight game where that has happened.

  • If they played every team every week, Still Sleeping would be 73-39.

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.
