Smooth Moves by Hernandez Hitmen

  • Thomas Rawls doled out a smorgasbord of points for Hernandez Hitmen to feast on this week. He paced the league in overall scoring and put up the highest score of any RB in the league this year.
  • With 26.58 points, Carson Palmer had the fourth-highest score in the league this week.
  • Hernandez Hitmen was still able to pull out a win with only 2 of their 9 starters exceeding their projected points.
  • Hernandez Hitmen won even though both of their WRs scored below their projected points.
  • Hernandez Hitmen had to contend with four of their bench players not playing this week and they were still able to get the win.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Some people are born losers, others develop it over time. Fortunately, there's a cure: Winning
  • Well, that's embarrassing. Left Giovani Bernard on the bench, where he ranked 10th in the league in scoring with 22.60 points.
  • Acquired and benched Terrance Williams, who scored 17.90 points and beat his projected point total by 99.6%, the sixth-highest percentage in the league.
  • Todd Gurley, who WWCD traded for this week, scored below his 17.86-point projection with 11.60 points.
  • This is how people lose everything in casinos. WWCD thought their luck would change and went back to the well with Jeremy Maclin. However, he scored 5.90 points against a projected 13.47 and has now underachieved in four straight games.

What If

  • Hernandez Hitmen would be 8-3 if they played WWCD every week.
  • Besides WWCD, Hernandez Hitmen would have defeated seven other teams this week.
  • Had they played each other last week, Hernandez Hitmen would have defeated WWCD 113.72 - 100.58.
  • Hernandez Hitmen would be 7-2 if they played the same schedule as WWCD.
  • If Hernandez Hitmen had played every team in the league each week, they would be 70-29.
  • WWCD would have lost to just one other team besides Hernandez Hitmen this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Hernandez Hitmen, WWCD would be 4-5.
  • If they played every team every week, WWCD would be 48-51.

Game Notes

  • The 115.78 points by Hernandez Hitmen was their lowest winning score of the season.
  • The 0.94-point margin of victory was the smallest in the league this week.
  • This must be how Jay Leno feels with a garage full of high performance cars. Hernandez Hitmen got a combined 59.20 points from their RBs, their highest combined scoring output from the RB position this season.
  • Just because Robert Horry has seven NBA championship rings, doesn't mean he's one of the greats. Despite being on the winning team, Antonio Gates scored 1.60 points against a projected 12.72 and has now underachieved in three straight games.
  • Not going to name names, but some people here aren't pulling their weight. Forget it, A.J. Green needs to step it up! He scored 11.90 points against a projected 17.03 in the win, and has now scored below his projection in three straight games.
  • Chris Johnson did little to help Hernandez Hitmen, underperforming versus projections for the third straight game with 7.50 points against a projected 11.86.
  • Although Hernandez Hitmen won, it was no thanks to Brandon McManus, who scored 5.00 points and has now scored below his projection in three straight weeks.
  • Not going to name names, but some people here aren't pulling their weight. Forget it, the Denver Broncos Defense needs to step it up! They scored 7.00 points against a projected 9.20 in the win, and has now scored below their projection in three straight games.

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.
