    Manders's Team Picks Up Victory over Zach's Team to Move into Seventh Place

    • 4-7
    • Weekly Grade: B-
    • 90.32
    • Zach's Team
    • 2-9
    • Weekly Grade: C
    • 75.28

    Manders's Team remains unbeaten in two matchups against Zach's Team with a 90.32 to 75.28 win. This week, Brandon Marshall was the reason for the win, picking up 21.00 points. That's a downgrade, however, from Jordy Nelson, who led all players with 26.90 points the last time these teams met. Manders's Team started two players with zero points while Zach's Team served up one goose egg, meaning both sides missed scoring opportunities. This is the highest margin for Manders's Team in two head-to-head matchups. They defeated Zach's Team 89.94 to 87.32 in Week 2.

    Smooth Moves by Manders's Team

    • With 21.00 points, Brandon Marshall got the ninth-largest point total in the league and beat his projected points by 86.1%, which was the 10th-biggest percentage in the league.
    • There are rumors that the military wants to model a new all-terrain vehicle based off of Matt Forte. He had the fourth-highest score among RBs in the league this week with 17.50 points.
    • The 16.90 points scored by Jordy Nelson was the sixth-highest score by a WR in the league this week.
    • Even with two starters scoring zero points, Manders's Team was still able to win.
    • Did you use any black magic this week? Manders's Team was still able to pull out a win with only 3 of their 9 starters exceeding their projected points.

    Toyota Roster Tune-up

    • Remember that thing Zach's Team did instead of reading the expert articles from the Hall Of Fame? Shouldn't have done that. 
    • Did not start Garrett Graham, who scored 9.40 points, surpassing his projected points by 249.1%, the second-highest percentage in the league.
    • Pierre Garcon has now underachieved in three straight games after scoring a matchup-low 0.60 points against a projected 7.04.
    • A heated blanket would be a great gift for LeSean McCoy during this cold streak. He scored below his projection in four straight games after scoring 10.60 points against a projected 13.50 this week.
    • Of the 9 starters on Zach's Team, 6 underperformed versus their projections.

    What If

    • Manders's Team would be 8-3 if they played Zach's Team every week.
    • Manders's Team would have beaten six other teams besides Zach's Team this week.
    • Had they played each other last week, Manders's Team would have defeated Zach's Team 84.46 - 53.10.
    • If they played the same schedule as Zach's Team, Manders's Team would be 3-6.
    • Manders's Team would be 51-48 if they played every team every week.
    • Besides Manders's Team, Zach's Team would have been defeated by four other teams this week.
    • Zach's Team would be 1-8 if they played the same schedule as Manders's Team.
    • If they played every team every week, Zach's Team would be 35-64.

    Game Notes

    • Zach's Team has lost nine times and five of them have come to teams who beat their scoring average in that matchup.
    • Zach's Team scored 75.28 points against a projected 83.15 and underachieved for the eighth time this season, including the last four weeks in a row.
    • The 15.04-point win by Manders's Team beat the 5.62-point spread.
    • With the win, Manders's Team snapped their six-game losing streak.
    • The 33.60 points by the WRs on Zach's Team was the season-high for combined points from the position.
    • 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 3.00 points against a projected 8.53 in the win, and has now scored below their projection in three straight games.
    • Just because Robert Horry has seven NBA championship rings, doesn't mean he's one of the greats. Despite being on the winning team, Andre Johnson scored 6.80 points against a projected 9.40 and has now underachieved in four straight games.
    • The highest-scoring group of WRs in the league this week was on Manders's Team, which got 44.70 points from the position.

    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.
