Smooth Moves by Them Boyz

  • If this were a dream sequence, you'd hear a deep voice announce, "Them Boyz, the Toyota Hall of Famer." But it's not.
  • Expect to see some trade offers for Golden Tate. He ranked fourth in the league in scoring with 28.50 points.
  • LeSean McCoy put up 26.10 points, which was the seventh-highest score in the league this week.
  • Do you put a LB or DB on him? You might have to put both on him if this continues. Coby Fleener scored 13.60 points to rank fifth among TEs in the league this week.
  • The 16.00 points were a season-high for Steven Hauschka. The score beat his 8.63-point projection by 85.4%, which also was a season-high.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Next week, be sure to ask Them Boyz where official Toyota Hall of Fame articles are kept.
  • Did not start the New England Patriots Defense, which scored 12.00 points and beat their projected point total by a team-leading 17.4%.
  • This is how people lose everything in casinos. Carolina Crabs thought their luck would change and went back to the well with DuJuan Harris. However, he scored 0.80 points against a projected 2.57 and has now underachieved in four straight games.
  • Carolina Crabs had 3 of their 11 starters score zero points.
  • The laces were in for Carolina Crabs, who was outscored by Them Boyz at the K position, 16.00 - 7.00.

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.
