    • Marshawn Lynch scored 14.00 points, which ranked 10th out of all the RBs in the league this week.

    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.
