    Smooth Moves by Twang-a-Drum

    • When is Eddie Lacy going to get some respect from the "experts"? With 24.70 points against a projected 15.04, he ranked seventh in the league in scoring and has now overachieved in four straight games.
    • Coby Fleener had the most points of any TE in the league this week with 16.10.
    • What do Apache helicopters, F-117 Nighthawks and Emmanuel Sanders have in common? They are all dangerous aerial weapons. He ranked ninth in the league in scoring among WRs this week with 16.70 points.
    • Marshawn Lynch put the team on his back with 15.00 points, the eighth-highest score among RBs in the league this week.
    • C.J. Anderson scored 13.20 points, which ranked 10th out of all the RBs in the league this week.

    Toyota Roster Tune-up

    • Scrapper should have scored more than 131.70 in order to win. That's Hall Of Fame level insight. 
    • Did not start Rashad Jennings, who underachieved but still scored more than any RB on the team with 8.90 points against a projected 12.74.
    • All that glitters is not gold. Picked up Trent Richardson, who scored 2.90 points against his projected 11.18.
    • Scrapper had 8 starters fail to reach their projections.
    • With 2.70 points, T.Y. Hilton was last on the team in scoring and got only 25.3% of his 10.69 projected points, his lowest percentage of the season.

    What If

    • Twang-a-Drum would be 8-3 if they played Scrapper every week.
    • Twang-a-Drum would have beaten five other teams besides Scrapper this week.
    • Had they played each other last week, Twang-a-Drum would have defeated Scrapper 173.55 - 108.60.
    • Twang-a-Drum would be 5-4 if they played the same schedule as Scrapper.
    • If Twang-a-Drum had played every team in the league each week, they would be 72-27.
    • Scrapper would have lost to six other teams besides Twang-a-Drum this week.
    • If they played the same schedule as Twang-a-Drum, Scrapper would be 5-4.
    • Scrapper would be 53-46 if they played every team every week.

    Game Notes

    • Maybe the league is colluding against them. All five of the losses for Scrapper this season have come when their opponent scores higher than their season average.
    • Eat. Sleep. Conquer. Repeat. Twang-a-Drum has won nine games in a row, the longest current winning streak in the league.
    • Twang-a-Drum topped their point expectations for the fourth week in a row. They have now overperformed versus projections for the seventh time.
    • The 46.64-point win by Twang-a-Drum beat the 13.09-point spread.
    • It was a season-low point total for Scrapper.
    • What good are running backs if they are running backwards instead of forwards? The 5.80 total points by the RBs on Scrapper was their smallest RB output this season.
    • The Arizona Cardinals Defense scored 17.00 points against a projected 7.92 in the loss and has now beaten their projection in three straight games.
    • Although Twang-a-Drum won, it was no thanks to Graham Gano, who scored 5.00 points and has now scored below his projection in three straight weeks.

    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.
