Smooth Moves by Brian Phillips

  • A higher score than your opponent is a guaranteed way to win each week. Thank the Toyota Hall of Fame for that valuable insight.

  • Ezekiel Elliott put the team on his back with 16.50 points, the 10th-highest score among RBs 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. Cameron Brate scored 14.60 points to rank second among TEs in the league this week.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • It's okay to regret not taking a sick day to study the Toyota Hall of Fame's articles. But it's not okay to do it again.

  • With 3.00 points against a projected 9.66, Greg Olsen did not meet his projection for the fourth straight game.
  • A heated blanket would be a great gift for Dan Bailey during this cold streak. He scored below his projection in three straight games after scoring 5.00 points against a projected 9.78 this week.
  • The Carolina Panthers Defense was last in the matchup in scoring with 1.00 point against a projected 5.58 and underachieved for the eighth time this season.

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.
