Smooth Moves by Riga Reapers

  • If this were a dream sequence, you'd hear a deep voice announce, "Riga Reapers, the Toyota Hall of Famer." But it's not.
  • The best week among all the bellcows: Jordan Howard had an outstanding performance with 30.70 points, the best among RBs this week and the 10th-highest RB score in the league this season.
  • When is David Johnson going to get some respect from the "experts?" With 29.50 points against a projected 18.70, he ranked third in the league in scoring and has now overachieved in four straight games.
  • Starter Jordan Matthews put up a zero, but Riga Reapers still won.
  • Apparently playing within themselves was good enough. Riga Reapers won despite having only 4 of their 9 starters exceed their projected points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Don't worry, The Commissionators, the Toyota Hall of Fame says losing isn't contagious. But it is embarrassing. And you should be embarrassed.
  • With 5.00 points against a projected 9.78, Dan Bailey did not meet his projection for the third straight game.
  • A heated blanket would be a great gift for Theo Riddick during this cold streak. He scored below his projection in four straight games after scoring 7.70 points against a projected 11.77 this week.
  • The Commissionators lost despite having only 3 of their 9 starters score less than their projected points.
  • Left Jason Witten in the starting lineup, where he didn't score any points.

  • If Riga Reapers played The Commissionators every week, they'd be 12-1 this season.
  • Besides The Commissionators, Riga Reapers would have defeated seven other teams this week.
  • Were they resting their players for this week? Riga Reapers would have defeated The Commissionators 88.34 - 77.24 had they played each other last week.
  • Riga Reapers would be 7-4 if they played the same schedule as The Commissionators.
  • If Riga Reapers had played every team in the league each week, they would be 75-42.

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.
