Smooth Moves by Cobras

  • If this were a dream sequence, you'd hear a deep voice announce, "Cobras, the Toyota Hall of Famer." But it's not.
  • Jay Ajayi put the team on his back with 27.00 points, the third-highest score among RBs in the league this week.
  • Odell Beckham Jr. scored 26.00 points, the third-highest WR score in the league this week.
  • Ryan Shazier scored 17.00 points against a projected 9.34 and has now overachieved in three straight games.
  • With 11.00 points, Kyle Rudolph ranked third in the league this week in scoring among TEs.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Sometimes 149.00 is enough. Unfortunately, the Toyota Hall of Fame has confirmed this time it's a smaller number than 171.00.
  • Alec Ogletree has now failed to reach his projection for six straight games. This week he scored 10.00 points versus a projected 14.03.
  • The 5.00 points scored by Steven Hauschka fell short of his 7.25-point projection, the third straight game where that has happened.
  • 9 of the 14 starters scored less than their projected points.
  • Left Tony Jefferson in the starting lineup, where he didn't score any points.

What If

  • If Cobras played xprtrpr every week, they would be 7-9 this season.
  • Besides xprtrpr, Cobras would have defeated three other teams this week.
  • Cobras would be 6-7-1 if they played the same schedule as xprtrpr.
  • If Cobras had played every team in the league each week, they would be 62-73-1.
  • Besides Cobras, xprtrpr would have been defeated by six other teams this week.
  • And they say procrastination doesn't pay off! Had they played each other last week, Cobras would have lost to xprtrpr 199.50 - 156.00.
  • xprtrpr would be 10-4 if they played the same schedule as Cobras.
  • xprtrpr would be 76-59-1 if they played every team every week.

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.
