Smooth Moves by Jimmy Crack Corn

  • The Toyota Hall of Fame would have its eyes on you for this week's win. But the Toyota Hall of Fame doesn't have eyes. Obviously.
  • A bounty from the backfield: Jordan Howard had an outstanding performance with 29.70 points, the best among RBs this week and the 10th-highest RB score in the league this season.
  • Golden Tate had 20.50 points, the highest WR score in the league this week.
  • Made a good move in sitting Todd Gurley this week. He brought in 4.70 points, the fewest of any RB on the team.
  • Even with only 3 of the 9 starters scoring more than their projection, Jimmy Crack Corn was still able to win.

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.
  • Left Joe Flacco on the bench, where he led the league in scoring with 38.24 points.
  • Missed out on an opportunity by leaving the 15.00 points scored by the Baltimore Ravens Defense on the bench this week. They outperformed their projected point total by 119.3%, the ninth-highest percentage in the league.
  • Did not start Zach Ertz, who scored 13.90 points, surpassing his projected points by 139.7%, the fifth-highest percentage in the league.
  • Should've started Phil Dawson, who underachieved, but still outscored the starting K with 6.00 against a projected 7.42.

What If

  • If Jimmy Crack Corn played Steel Curtain every week, they would be 5-8 this season.
  • Besides Steel Curtain, Jimmy Crack Corn would have defeated five other teams this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Steel Curtain, Jimmy Crack Corn would be 3-8.
  • Jimmy Crack Corn would be 51-65-1 if they played every team every week.
  • Besides Jimmy Crack Corn, Steel Curtain would have been defeated by five other teams this week.
  • Timing really is everything. Jimmy Crack Corn would have lost to Steel Curtain 131.40 - 68.56 had they played each other last week.
  • Steel Curtain would be 8-3 if they played the same schedule as Jimmy Crack Corn.
  • Steel Curtain would be 72-45 if they played every team every week.

Game Notes

  • Looks like teams bring their A game when they see them on the schedule. Of the losses Steel Curtain has had, seven were against opponents who topped their season scoring average that week.
  • Jimmy Crack Corn underachieved for the eighth time this season, including the last five weeks in a row, scoring 99.40 points against a projected 101.74 this week.
  • Steel Curtain has lost three straight games, the longest current losing streak in the league.
  • At 17.00 points, the margin of victory was the tightest of the week.
  • Eat. Sleep. Beat the streak. Jimmy Crack Corn was finally able to overcome their three-game losing streak with the win.
  • This must be how Jay Leno feels with a garage full of high performance cars. Jimmy Crack Corn got a combined 37.60 points from their RBs, their highest combined scoring output from the RB position this season.
  • Just because Robert Horry has seven NBA championship rings, doesn't mean he's one of the greats. Despite being on the winning team, Matt Forte scored 7.90 points against a projected 11.01 and has now underachieved in three straight games.
  • Not going to name names, but some people here aren't pulling their weight. Forget it, Larry Fitzgerald needs to step it up! He scored 7.80 points against a projected 10.58 in the win, and has now scored below his projection in three straight games.

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.
