Smooth Moves by pjay65's Team

  • If this were a dream sequence, you'd hear a deep voice announce, "pjay65's Team, the Toyota Hall of Famer." But it's not.
  • Even the Wright brothers would be proud of this aerial performance. Jordy Nelson had 27.40 points, the highest WR score of the week and the fifth-highest WR score in the league this season.
  • Jay Ajayi felt like the Rodney Dangerfield of football: "no respect at all" with this week's projected points. He scored the sixth-most points in the league and beat his projected point total by 113.9%, the seventh-highest percentage in the league.
  • Ezekiel Elliott scored 21.20 points, which ranked fifth out of all the RBs in the league this week.
  • Antonio Gates had the second-highest TE score in the league this week with 15.40 points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Don't worry, Michael's Team, the Toyota Hall of Fame says losing isn't contagious. But it is embarrassing. And you should be embarrassed.
  • Steve Smith Sr. was left on the bench, where he bested his expected 8.83-point total by putting up 15.90 points.
  • All that glitters is not gold. Picked up Ty Montgomery, who scored 4.00 points against his projected 10.73.
  • This is how people lose everything in casinos. Michael's Team thought their luck would change and went back to the well with Steven Hauschka. However, he scored 5.00 points against a projected 8.28 and has now underachieved in three straight games.
  • It was not a good week for Michael's Team at TE, where they were beaten 15.40 - 5.30.

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.
