Smooth Moves by HydeTheSalami

  • Finders keepers, losers weepers. Picked up the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Defense, which beat their scoring projection by 217.3%, which was the highest percentage among the two teams.
  • With 23.50 points, Doug Martin got the sixth-largest point total in the league and beat his projected points by 132.2%, which was the ninth-biggest percentage in the league.
  • Apparently playing within themselves was good enough. HydeTheSalami won despite having only 3 of their 9 starters exceed their projected points.
  • HydeTheSalami won even though all three of their WRs scored below their projected points.
  • Perhaps this is how backups become starters. HydeTheSalami won with four players on the bench that did not play this week.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • You gave it the old college try. Unfortunately for you, this isn't college ball. This is professional football at the national level; you know the acronym.
  • Should've started the Arizona Cardinals Defense, which underachieved, but still had more points than the starting DEF with 5.00 against a projected 5.80.
  • With 0.40 points, Amari Cooper was last in the matchup in scoring and got only 3.7% of his projected point total, which is his lowest percentage of the season.
  • The 6.50 points scored by Chris Johnson fell short of his 11.21-point projection, the third straight game where that has happened.
  • The best offense is a good defense. IOU'$ got beat 18.00 - 3.00 by HydeTheSalami at the DEF position.

What If

  • If HydeTheSalami played IOU'$ every week, they'd be 4-7 this season.
  • Besides IOU'$, HydeTheSalami would have defeated nine other teams this week.
  • HydeTheSalami would be 3-7 if they played the same schedule as IOU'$.
  • If HydeTheSalami had played every team in the league each week, they would be 57-64.
  • Besides HydeTheSalami, IOU'$ would have been defeated by four other teams this week.
  • And they say procrastination doesn't pay off! Had they played each other last week, HydeTheSalami would have lost to IOU'$ 90.76 - 71.04.
  • If they played the same schedule as HydeTheSalami, IOU'$ would be 5-5.
  • If they played every team every week, IOU'$ would be 75-46.

Game Notes

  • Six of the seven losses for IOU'$ this season have come when their opponent scores higher than their season average.
  • The tragedy of being an underachiever is that HydeTheSalami knows what they should be, but reality keeps telling them that they're wrong. They scored 92.14 points against a projected 94.90 and underachieved for the sixth time this season, including the last three weeks in a row.
  • Just because Robert Horry has seven NBA championship rings, doesn't mean he's one of the greats. Despite being on the winning team, Jason Witten scored 2.70 points against a projected 7.69 and has now underachieved in four straight games.
  • Not going to name names, but some people here aren't pulling their weight. Forget it, Brandon McManus needs to step it up! He scored 5.00 points against a projected 8.77 in the win, and has now scored below his projection in three straight games.
  • Although HydeTheSalami won, it was no thanks to A.J. Green, who scored 7.90 points and has now scored below his projection in three straight weeks.
  • HydeTheSalami got a combined 34.10 points from their RBs, the highest combined scoring output from the RB position for any team this week.
  • HydeTheSalami won despite failing to reach their projected point total, improving to 2-4 when doing so. IOU'$ also failed to reach their point expectation and falls to 0-2 in such games.
  • HydeTheSalami had the second-highest score in the league this week with 92.14 points.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 11

Mark Rypien Was - QB 1991 vs. Atlanta 442 passing yards, 6 TD passes, 4 rushing yards, 1 TD rush In a season that would culminate with a Super Bowl MVP award, Washington QB Mark Rypien’s finest performance came in Week 11, as he riddled the Falcons secondary for 6 TD passes, while also rushing for a score.

Since the AFL/NFL merger, only Michael Vick (Week 10 of ’10) has posted a higher single-game fantasy tally at the QB position. It was an especially standout performance for Rypien, who eclipsed 269 passing just one other time during the ’91 season, and failed to top three touchdown passes in any other game.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
