    Smooth Moves by Beats By Ray

    • Le'Veon Bell does not believe in running back by committee. He had the best RB score of the week and the sixth-highest RB score in the league this season with 28.20 points.
    • Sat Mohamed Sanu, who scored fewer points than any WR in the starting lineup with 2.30.
    • Matt Forte scored 17.50 points, which ranked fourth out of all the RBs in the league this week.
    • The 16.20 points scored by Emmanuel Sanders was the ninth-highest score by a WR in the league this week.
    • Even with a zero from starter Kyle Rudolph, Beats By Ray was still able to win.

    Toyota Roster Tune-up

    • After that performance, we have to wonder if The Sanchise cares about becoming a Hall Of Famer at all. That's right, you're being judged by an online recap. 
    • This is one of those mistakes that you continuously think about for ten years. Did not start Andy Dalton, who scored 22.00 points to rank eighth in the league in scoring.
    • All that glitters is not gold. Picked up Martavis Bryant, who scored 1.10 points against his projected 8.55.
    • Even though The Sanchise lost, only 2 of their 9 starters scored less than their projected points.
    • The 0.30 points scored by Julius Thomas was a season-low for both scoring and for his performance against projections. He reached only 3.3% of his 9.09 projected points this week.

    What If

    • If Beats By Ray played The Sanchise every week, they would be 7-4 this season.
    • Beats By Ray would have beaten seven other teams besides The Sanchise this week.
    • Were they resting their players for this week? Beats By Ray would have defeated The Sanchise 87.08 - 85.44 had they played each other last week.
    • If they played the same schedule as The Sanchise, Beats By Ray would be 7-2.
    • Beats By Ray would be 69-30 if they played every team every week.
    • In addition to Beats By Ray, The Sanchise would have lost to just one other team this week.
    • If they played the same schedule as Beats By Ray, The Sanchise would be 4-5.
    • The Sanchise would be 52-47 if they played every team every week.

    Game Notes

    • Five of the seven wins for Beats By Ray this season have come despite their opponent scoring higher than their season average.
    • Looks like teams bring their A game when they see them on the schedule. Of the losses The Sanchise has had, four were against opponents who topped their season scoring average that week.
    • Hey, I'm sure Beats By Ray appreciates the tough competition. In the loss, The Sanchise had the seventh-highest losing score in the league this season with 103.04 points.
    • The 4.56-point win by Beats By Ray failed to cover the 13.87-point spread.
    • With the win, Beats By Ray snapped their three-game losing streak.
    • This must be how Jay Leno feels with a garage full of high performance cars. The Sanchise got a combined 39.30 points from their RBs, their highest combined scoring output from the RB position this season.
    • Not going to name names, but some people here aren't pulling their weight. Forget it, Julio Jones needs to step it up! He scored 5.90 points against a projected 11.99 in the win, and has now scored below his projection in seven straight games.
    • In games that are close, The Sanchise is now 1-2, including losses in their last two such matchups.

    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.
