Smooth Moves by Knights

  • 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.
  • Golden Tate laughed in the face of the experts this week, beating his scoring projection by a matchup-leading 118.9% and scoring the fourth-most points in the league with 32.50 points.
  • With 27.80 points, Jordy Nelson ranked second in the league in scoring among WRs this week.
  • Darren Sproles exceeded scoring projections by 21.0%, with 16.90 points against a projected 13.97.
  • Did you use any black magic this week? Knights was still able to pull out a win with only 3 of their 9 starters exceeding their projected points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Somehow, all of your players had two bye weeks this week. The Toyota Hall of Fame calls that a bye bye week. Yes, it's a bad joke, but it's still better than your score.
  • Should have started Chandler Catanzaro, who underachieved, but still outscored the starting K with 7.00 against a projected 8.45.
  • Should have started Matt Ryan, who underachieved, but still outscored the starting QB with 19.18 against a projected 23.57.
  • This is how people lose everything in casinos. Sonoma Winos thought their luck would change and went back to the well with the Arizona Cardinals Defense. However, they scored 6.00 points against a projected 7.88 and has now underachieved in six straight games.
  • 4 of the 9 starters scored zero points for Sonoma Winos.

What If

  • If Knights played Sonoma Winos every week, they would be 5-8 this season.
  • Knights would have beaten eight other teams besides Sonoma Winos this week.

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.
