    Smooth Moves by Hambone

    • Just call him Fred Flintstone, because he was toting the rock all day long. Jamaal Charles had 30.80 points, the highest RB score of the week and the seventh-highest RB score in the league this season.
    • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just Jordy Nelson posterizing opponents. He had the fifth-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 19.90 points.
    • A.J. Green scored 18.70 points, the eighth-highest WR score in the league this week.
    • With 12.00 points scored versus a projected 9.58, the Miami Dolphins Defense scored more points than projected for five straight games.
    • Hambone had most of their starters beat their scoring projection (5 out of 9).

    Toyota Roster Tune-up

    • Well, that's embarrassing. Left Cam Newton on the bench, where he ranked fifth in the league in scoring with 50.20 points.
    • Not reading the expert articles from the Hall Of Fame. And if they did, maybe they should pay better attention when they read.
    • Paul's Pleasant Team left the 34.00 points scored by the Green Bay Packers Defense on the bench this week. They beat their projected point total by 327.1%, the second-highest percentage in the league.
    • Left Coby Fleener on the bench, where he scored 17.40 points and beat his projected point total by 145.1%, the seventh-highest percentage in the league this week.
    • Pierre Garcon has now underachieved in three straight games after scoring a matchup-low 0.60 points against a projected 7.65.

    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.
