Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Losing is a proven way not to win a game. For a more successful season, try not losing.
  • A nod is as good as a wink to a blind horse. Clearly, NinjaBoot didn't know what they were doing when they picked up and started Dexter McCluster. He scored a team-worst 14.9% of his projected point total for 1 point.
  • Who needs offense when the defense is so dominant!? NinjaBoot got outscored 16 - 7 by Captain Hammer at the DEF position.
  • NinjaBoot had only 4 of their 9 starters underperform versus their projections, but they still lost.
  • The Denver Broncos Defense underachieved, scoring 7 points, only 80.0% of their projected 8.75.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 11

Mark Rypien Was - QB 1991 vs. Atlanta 442 passing yards, 6 TD passes, 4 rushing yards, 1 TD rush In a season that would culminate with a Super Bowl MVP award, Washington QB Mark Rypien’s finest performance came in Week 11, as he riddled the Falcons secondary for 6 TD passes, while also rushing for a score.

Since the AFL/NFL merger, only Michael Vick (Week 10 of ’10) has posted a higher single-game fantasy tally at the QB position. It was an especially standout performance for Rypien, who eclipsed 269 passing just one other time during the ’91 season, and failed to top three touchdown passes in any other game.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
