    Greg's Glorious Team picked up 17.46 points from Peyton Manning and 15.30 from Jeremy Maclin to put a thrashing on Ghost 98.86 to 56.78. A win is a win, but this one tastes just a bit sweeter for Greg's Glorious Team who gets revenge for a 95.28 to 84.78 upset loss to Ghost in Week 2. Free fallin' like Tom Petty, Ghost suffered a significant drop in scoring from last week's 107.70 to 86.82 loss against The Benchwarmers. Ghost (5-6, 914.44 points) sinks into eighth place and Greg's Glorious Team (8-3, 1,263.42 points) remains in first place.

    Smooth Moves by Greg's Glorious Team

    • Sat TE Mychal Rivera on the bench, where he had the lowest TE score on the team with 4.00 points.
    • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just Jeremy Maclin posterizing opponents. He had the 10th-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 15.30 points.
    • With 13.10 points, Rob Gronkowski ranked second in the league this week in scoring among TEs.

    Toyota Roster Tune-up

    • Ghost may have missed the opportunity for a win, but they gained an opportunity to be mercilessly taunted by Greg's Glorious Team.

    • 7 of the starters on Ghost underperformed versus their projections.

    Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 11

    Matt Schaub HOU - QB 2012 vs. Jacksonville 43–for-55 passing, 527 yards, 5 TD passes, 0 INTs Back before he became a Pick-6 artist, Schaub was once considered a viable fantasy QB option.

    And his positive attributes were never more evident than in a Week 11 victory vs. Jacksonville in '12. There's a saying that "the candle burns brightest just before it blows out." And, metaphorically, this was that game for Schaub. He would finish out the '12 campaign with just four touchdown passes in his final six contests. And he would open the '13 campaign by throwing nine interceptions in his first five games, including an NFL record for interceptions returned for touchdowns in four straight contests. He would languish on the bench for much of the remainder of the season before ending up in Oakland this season, an always popular destination for washed up veterans.
    Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
