  • Weekly Grade

Golden Hams picked up the highest score of the week from Russell Wilson (68.60) to defeat Antoin's Team 172.10 to 159.00. Golden Hams came into the matchup as the underdog, with a projected spread of 25.90. It's been said that it's not how you start, but how you finish and Golden Hams took that to heart. Despite losing their last matchup against Antoin's Team, Golden Hams won when it mattered most. The gap could have been wider, Golden Hams had a starter score zero points (Doug Martin). Antoin's Team must have done something to make the fantasy football gods frown upon them. They finished in eighth place with a record of 4-10, yet ranked sixth in the league in points per game with 181.06. In their only other postseason game of the season, Antoin's Team thumped Lions4eva's Team, 219.60 to 135.10.

Smooth Moves by Golden Hams

  • If this were a dream sequence, you'd hear a deep voice announce, "Golden Hams, the Toyota Hall of Famer." But it's not.
  • Russell Wilson led the league in scoring and had the 12th-most points in the league this season with 68.60.
  • Sat Jamison Crowder, who scored fewer points than any WR in the starting lineup with 0.30.
  • Made a good move in sitting Rashad Jennings this week. He brought in 5.10 points, the fewest of any RB on the team.
  • Golden Hams won even with Doug Martin in the starting lineup, who didn't score any points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Don't worry, Antoin's Team, the Toyota Hall of Fame says losing isn't contagious. But it is embarrassing. And you should be embarrassed.
  • Antoin's Team left the 23.00 points scored by Matt Bryant on the bench this week. He beat his projected point total by 174.8%, the ninth-highest percentage in the league.
  • Jason Witten was left on the bench, where he bested his expected 5.43-point total by putting up 9.30 points.
  • 10 of the 13 starters scored less than their projected points.
  • With 1.00 point, the Miami Dolphins Defense was last on the team in scoring and got only 10.6% of their 9.42 projected points, their lowest percentage of the season.

What If

  • Golden Hams would be 7-9 if they played Antoin's Team every week.
  • Besides Antoin's Team, Golden Hams would have beaten only one other team this week.
  • Golden Hams would be 3-10 if they played the same schedule as Antoin's Team.
  • If Golden Hams had played every team in the league each week, they would be 35-77.
  • Antoin's Team would have been beaten by every other team in the league this week.
  • And they say procrastination doesn't pay off! Had they played each other last week, Golden Hams would have lost to Antoin's Team 219.60 - 184.80.
  • If they played the same schedule as Golden Hams, Antoin's Team would be 8-5.
  • If they played every team every week, Antoin's Team would be 44-68.

Game Notes

  • Antoin's Team had the league's lowest score of the week for the fourth time this season.
  • What good are running backs if they are running backwards instead of forwards? The 8.80 total points by the RBs on Golden Hams was their smallest RB output this season.
  • The signal-callers for Antoin's Team combined to score 79.80 points, 50.2% of the team's total score.
  • Just because Robert Horry has seven NBA championship rings, doesn't mean he's one of the greats. Despite being on the winning team, Kenny Britt scored 1.50 points against a projected 8.01 and has now underachieved in three straight games.
  • Golden Hams got 90.2% of their points from players they drafted.
  • Golden Hams outdid their projection in the win, while Antoin's Team came in under their point expectation. Golden Hams is now 6-1 when overachieving, while Antoin's Team falls to 1-6 when failing to reach their projection.
  • Golden Hams was able to win despite putting up the smallest point total of any winning team in the league this week.
  • The New England Patriots Defense played well in the loss with 17.00 points, the highest score of any DEF in the league this 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.
