Smooth Moves by TrapStars

  • TrapStars scored massive brownie points with the Toyota Hall of Fame this week. Too bad brownie points don't count as real points. Not that you need help.
  • Jay Ajayi does not believe in running back by committee. He had the best RB score of the week and the sixth-highest RB score in the league this season with 27 points.
  • With 29 points, Kirk Cousins ranked sixth in the league in scoring.
  • Did you use any black magic this week? TrapStars was still able to pull out a win with only 4 of their 9 starters exceeding their projected points.
  • Scored 103 points from players in the starting lineup versus 21 points from players left on the bench for the league's highest starter/bench scoring ratio this week. This is the third time this season they have had the highest ratio of the week.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Sometimes 83 is enough. Unfortunately, the Toyota Hall of Fame has confirmed this time it's a smaller number than 103.
  • Picked up Adam Thielen but left him on the bench, where he scored 24 points and exceeded his scoring projection by 384.8%, the second-highest percentage in the league.
  • The RBs for ORANGE CRUSH got outscored 34 - 9 by the RBs for TrapStars.
  • Jarvis Landry scored the fewest points on the team and scored below his projection for the eighth time this season with 2 points against a projected 4.40.
  • 5 of the 9 starters scored less than their projected points.

What If

  • If TrapStars played ORANGE CRUSH every week, they'd be 10-5-1 this year.
  • TrapStars would have beaten four other teams besides ORANGE CRUSH this week.
  • TrapStars would be 9-3-1 if they played the same schedule as ORANGE CRUSH.
  • TrapStars would be 90-46-4 if they played every team every week.
  • Besides TrapStars, ORANGE CRUSH would have been defeated by four other teams this week.
  • And they say procrastination doesn't pay off! Had they played each other last week, TrapStars would have lost to ORANGE CRUSH 109 - 106.
  • ORANGE CRUSH would be 7-6 if they played the same schedule as TrapStars.
  • If they played every team every week, ORANGE CRUSH would be 69-70-1.

Game Notes

  • Six of the seven losses for ORANGE CRUSH this season have come when their opponent scores higher than their season average.
  • Speed, strength, agility, vision, and intelligence. It was all on display this week when the RBs on TrapStars collectively had their best week of the season with 34 points.
  • TrapStars beat ORANGE CRUSH at the top, with two of their starters outscoring the leading point-getter for ORANGE CRUSH.
  • Just because Robert Horry has seven NBA championship rings, doesn't mean he's one of the greats. Despite being on the winning team, Julio Jones scored 4 points against a projected 11.25 and has now underachieved in three straight games.
  • TrapStars overachieved in the win, improving to 10-1 when beating their projected points this season, while ORANGE CRUSH falls to 1-4 when scoring below their projected points.
  • The margin of victory of 20 points was the second-highest margin in the league this week.
  • ORANGE CRUSH could not close out the win even with the help of Jordy Nelson, who scored 18 points, the third-highest score among all WRs in the league for the week.
  • The 103 points by TrapStars beat their season average of 93.75 points.

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.
