Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Should have started Ben Roethlisberger, who underachieved, but still outscored the starting QB with 17 against a projected 20.14.
  • All that glitters is not gold. Picked up Chandler Catanzaro, who scored 5 points against his projected 8.18.

  • Davante Adams was last on the team in scoring with 4 points against a projected 12.86 and underachieved for the third time this season.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 15

Jamaal Charles KC - RB 2013 vs. Oakland 215 yards from scrimmage, 5 touchdowns Charles’ prowess as a runner is well known, as he was second on the all-time running back list coming into 2016 with an average of 5.5 yards per carry (min.

750 career carries). But in Week 15 of ’13, his considerable skills as a receiver were thrust into the spotlight, as he hauled in eight passes for 195 receiving yards and four touchdowns catches against the Raiders. He also added a one-yard TD run to what stands as the second-best Week 15 fantasy output since the AFL/NFL merger. It is also the second-best receiving yardage total by a running back in any week during that span, trailing only the 204 yards of Marshall Faulk in Week 16 of ’99.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
