Smooth Moves by Shaka Brah

  • Shaka Brah 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.
  • The 17 points scored by Stephen Gostkowski was the second-highest K score of the week and is the fifth-highest K score in the league this season.
  • With 17 points, the Denver Broncos Defense was the top-scoring DEF of the week.
  • Made the right move in benching Kelvin Benjamin, who had 1 point, the lowest total of any starting WR on Shaka Brah.
  • Jamison Crowder scored 10 points against a projected 7.50 and has now overachieved in eight straight games.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • The fact that you're reading this means you have internet connection. Unfortunately, that's one less thing to blame your loss on. Don't tell the Hall.
  • Okusacks left the 18 points scored by Terrance West on the bench this week. He beat his projected point total by 141.6%, the eighth-highest percentage in the league.
  • Michael Crabtree, who was left on the bench, exceeded his 7.48-point projection with 13 points.
  • 8 of the starters on Okusacks underperformed versus their projections.
  • A heated blanket would be a great gift for Larry Fitzgerald during this cold streak. He scored below his projection in three straight games after scoring 7 points against a projected 9.91 this week.

What If

  • If Shaka Brah played Okusacks every week, they'd be 7-6 this season.
  • Besides Okusacks, Shaka Brah would have defeated three other teams this week.
  • Had they played each other last week, Shaka Brah would have defeated Okusacks 95 - 69.
  • Shaka Brah would be 3-7-1 if they played the same schedule as Okusacks.
  • If Shaka Brah had played every team in the league each week, they would be 52-62-3.
  • Okusacks would have lost to every other team in the league this week.
  • Okusacks would be 5-6 if they played the same schedule as Shaka Brah.

  • Just because Robert Horry has seven NBA championship rings, doesn't mean he's one of the greats. Despite being on the winning team, Allen Robinson scored 3 points against a projected 8.36 and has now underachieved in three straight games.
  • Matt Forte did little to help Shaka Brah, underperforming versus projections for the third straight game with 7 points against a projected 9.47.

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.
