    "By the beard of Zeus!" Yule Log (5-5-1, 1,254.00 points) channeled their inner Ron Burgundy to get this win, finding a way to defeat Shake N Bake 102.55 to 78.20, despite finishing with just the 10th-highest point total this week. Yule Log also put up just 90.0% of their 114.00-points-per-matchup season average. Luck hasn't always been their thing, though. They've also had one tough loss this season, losing even though they scored near the top of the league in points. Yule Log has had some help in the standings this season. They are currently in sixth place, but rank just eighth in total points. It was a difficult outing for Shake N Bake, who fell to 7-4 (1,305.00 points) after coming up dead last in points.

    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.
