    Da Bears Wins Against BTB to Grab Fifth Place

    Week 11

    • Da Bears
    • 6-5
    • Weekly Grade: B
    • 139.1
    • BTB
    • 6-5
    • Weekly Grade: B
    • 119.95

    Da Bears got 33.80 points from Jamaal Charles and 29.80 from Ryan Tannehill to take down BTB 139.10 to 119.95. Even though the teams are tied for fifth place with matching 6-5 records, Da Bears has a distinct advantage in points, 1,441.61 to 1,309.13. BTB definitely shouldn't plan a trip to Vegas. Their luck couldn't get any worse as they are on a three-game losing streak. On top of the loss, BTB had a starter score zero points (the Indianapolis Colts Defense).

    Smooth Moves by Da Bears

    • The third-highest RB score of the week and the sixth-highest RB score of the season came from Jamaal Charles, who scored 33.80 points.
    • The 24.90 points scored by Eddie Lacy was the fourth-highest score of any RB in the league this week.
    • The 17.50 points scored by Roddy White outpaced his 12.66-point scoring projection by 38.2%.
    • With only 5 of their 10 starters beating their projected points, Da Bears was still able to win.
    • Three bench players on Da Bears were not playing this week, but they still won the matchup.

    Toyota Roster Tune-up

    • Not reading the expert articles from the Hall Of Fame. And if they did, maybe they should pay better attention when they read.
    • Had a chance to start Knile Davis, who outdid his scoring projection of 6.67 points by scoring 11.45 points.
    • A heated blanket would be a great gift for Bobby Rainey during this cold streak. He scored below his projection in three straight games after scoring 0.40 points against a projected 7.53 this week.
    • BTB had 6 of their 10 starters score less than their projected points.
    • The Indianapolis Colts Defense failed to score this week with 0 points against a projected 4.21.

    What If

    • If Da Bears played BTB every week, they would be 7-4 this season.
    • Besides BTB, Da Bears would have defeated seven other teams this week.
    • Were they resting their players for this week? Da Bears would have defeated BTB 132.96 - 69.28 had they played each other last week.
    • If they played the same schedule as BTB, Da Bears would be 7-3.
    • If Da Bears had played every team in the league each week, they would be 70-51.
    • BTB would have lost to four other teams besides Da Bears this week.
    • If they played the same schedule as Da Bears, BTB would be 5-5.
    • If they played every team every week, BTB would be 61-60.

    Game Notes

    • Looks like teams bring their A game when they see them on the schedule. Of the losses BTB has had, four were against opponents who topped their season scoring average that week.
    • The tragedy of being an underachiever is that BTB knows what they should be, but reality keeps telling them that they're wrong. They scored 119.95 points against a projected 120.99 and underachieved for the seventh time this season, including the last three weeks in a row.
    • Da Bears was able to cover the 9.93-point spread in the win.
    • Not going to name names, but some people here aren't pulling their weight. Forget it, Vincent Jackson needs to step it up! He scored 5.80 points against a projected 13.97 in the win, and has now scored below his projection in five straight games.
    • Graham Gano did little to help Da Bears, underperforming versus projections for the third straight game with 5.00 points against a projected 8.66.
    • BTB has now lost three games in a row.
    • The best group of RBs in the league this week was on Da Bears, which got 61.80 points from the position.
    • Da Bears outdid their projection in the win, while BTB came in under their point expectation. Da Bears is now 4-2 when overachieving, while BTB falls to 2-5 when failing to reach their projection.

    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.
