    Smooth Moves by Vaqueros

    • With 36.40 points, Mike Evans had the highest WR score of the week and the third-highest WR score in the league this season.
    • Greg Olsen had the fifth-highest TE score in the league this week with 8.60 points.
    • With 14.70 points, Rueben Randle had his highest score of the season and beat his projected point total by a season-high 38.4%.
    • This is the bar, and this is the team jumping over it. Vaqueros had 6 of their 10 starters exceed their projected points.

    Toyota Roster Tune-up

    • Tied the Knot probably blew their shot at becoming a Toyota Hall Of Famer with that loss, but there's a bright side. Let us know when you find it.
    • Did not start Mark Sanchez, who led the team in scoring with 27.04 points.
    • Should have started Shane Vereen, who underachieved, but still had the most points of any RB on the team with 9.70 against a projected 14.50.
    • This is how people lose everything in casinos. Tied the Knot thought their luck would change and went back to the well with Colin Kaepernick. However, he scored 17.12 points against a projected 25.17 and has now underachieved in four straight games.
    • After a season-low 2.10 points against a projected 9.60, Darren McFadden has scored below his projection in four straight games.

    • If Vaqueros played Tied the Knot every week, they would be 5-6 this season.
    • Vaqueros would have beaten six other teams besides Tied the Knot this week.
    • Were they resting their players for this week? Vaqueros would have defeated Tied the Knot 124.18 - 115.24 had they played each other last week.

    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.
