Smooth Moves by Guttersnipes

  • A higher score than your opponent is a guaranteed way to win each week. Thank the Toyota Hall of Fame for that valuable insight.
  • Just call him Fred Flintstone, because he was toting the rock all day long. David Johnson had 31 points, the highest RB score of the week and the fourth-highest RB score in the league this season.
  • With 27 points, Ben Roethlisberger ranked sixth in the league in scoring.
  • We won't judge you if you want to bow to Le'Veon Bell. He ranked 10th in the league in scoring with 25 points.
  • A person is known by the company they keep. In this case, Guttersnipes is looking pretty darn good because they had 7 of their 9 starters exceed their projected points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Next week, be sure to ask Guttersnipes where official Toyota Hall of Fame articles are kept.
  • Did not start Dustin Hopkins, who scored 11 points and beat his projected point total by a team-leading 48.4%.
  • The RBs on Miami Sound Machine let them down, getting outgunned by the RBs on Guttersnipes 67 - 19.
  • This is how people lose everything in casinos. Miami Sound Machine thought their luck would change and went back to the well with Steven Hauschka. However, he scored 5 points against a projected 7.54 and has now underachieved in three straight games.
  • Our kicker can beat up your kicker. Miami Sound Machine got outscored 11 - 5 by Guttersnipes at the K position.

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.
