    Smooth Moves by Cajun Kirs

    • Expect to see some trade offers for Andrew Luck. He ranked eighth in the league in scoring with 23.62 points.
    • Marshawn Lynch put the team on his back with 12.50 points, the eighth-highest score among RBs in the league this week.
    • Do you put a LB or DB on him? You might have to put both on him if this continues. Greg Olsen scored 6.10 points to rank fourth among TEs in the league this week.
    • Even with a zero from starter Fred Jackson, Cajun Kirs was still able to win.
    • Did you use any black magic this week? Cajun Kirs was still able to pull out a win with only 4 of their 9 starters exceeding their projected points.

    Toyota Roster Tune-up

    • Chase Tromp should have scored more than 81.02 in order to win. That's Hall Of Fame level insight. 
    • Should have started Philip Rivers, who underachieved, but still had more points than the starting QB with 13.62 against a projected 21.33.
    • Lost the matchup despite getting Cajun Kirs on their lowest-scoring week of the season.
    • This is how people lose everything in casinos. Chase Tromp thought their luck would change and went back to the well with Vincent Jackson. However, he scored 4.30 points against a projected 11.26 and has now underachieved in five straight games.
    • The 5.90 points scored by Julio Jones fell short of his 11.99-point projection, the seventh straight game where that has happened.

    What If

    • Cajun Kirs would be 8-3 if they played Chase Tromp every week.
    • Besides Chase Tromp, Cajun Kirs would have defeated three other teams this week.
    • Had they played each other last week, Cajun Kirs would have defeated Chase Tromp 116.18 - 106.24.
    • If they played the same schedule as Chase Tromp, Cajun Kirs would be 6-3.
    • If Cajun Kirs had played every team in the league each week, they would be 68-31.

    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.
