    Smooth Moves by Da Bears

    • What do Apache helicopters, F-117 Nighthawks and Andrew Hawkins have in common? They are all dangerous aerial weapons. He ranked 10th in the league in scoring among WRs this week with 15.70 points.
    • There are rumors that the military wants to model a new all-terrain vehicle based off of Joique Bell. He had the ninth-highest score among RBs in the league this week with 11.50 points.
    • Do you put a LB or DB on him? You might have to put both on him if this continues. Larry Donnell scored 11.40 points to rank third among TEs in the league this week.
    • This is the bar, and this is the team jumping over it. Da Bears had 6 of their 9 starters exceed their projected points.
    • Roddy White exceeded scoring projections by 36.1%, with 13.50 points against a projected 9.92.

    Toyota Roster Tune-up

    • The Mustangs should get prescription glasses. At least we assume that's why they didn't bother reading the expert articles from the Toyota Hall Of Fame.
    • Did not start Matt Bryant, who scored 15.00 points, surpassing his projected points by 90.1%, the ninth-highest percentage in the league.
    • A heated blanket would be a great gift for Vernon Davis during this cold streak. He scored below his projection in seven straight games after scoring 1.10 points against a projected 5.19 this week.
    • The Mustangs could have used more points from the TE position, where Da Bears beat them 11.40 - 1.10.
    • The 17.46 points scored by Peyton Manning was a season-low for both scoring and for his performance against projections. He reached only 63.8% of his 27.37 projected points this week.

    What If

    • Da Bears would be 4-7 if they played The Mustangs every week.
    • Besides The Mustangs, Da Bears would have defeated six other teams this week.
    • Da Bears would be 4-5 if they played the same schedule as The Mustangs.
    • If Da Bears had played every team in the league each week, they would be 53-46.
    • The Mustangs would have lost to just two other teams besides Da Bears this week.
    • And they say procrastination doesn't pay off! Had they played each other last week, Da Bears would have lost to The Mustangs 124.30 - 90.16.
    • If they played the same schedule as Da Bears, The Mustangs would be 6-3.
    • The Mustangs would be 60-39 if they played every team every week.

    Game Notes

    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.
