    Are your feet cold, Beats by Ray? After getting the win the last time they met, Nicky The Bat took it a step further and beat the socks off Beats by Ray this time around, winning 84.42 to 58.12. This week, Emmanuel Sanders was the team leader, putting up 16.20 points. It was still quite a drop-off from the 20.50 points Alfred Morris got the last time these teams played. Adding insult to injury, Beats by Ray got zero points from Montee Ball. Nicky The Bat won 83.48 to 82.22 in Week 2, and now has a 13.78-point average margin of victory over Beats by Ray.

    Smooth Moves by Nicky The Bat

    • Benched RB Bishop Sankey, who scored fewer points than any RB in the starting lineup with 10.50.
    • Nicky The Bat was still able to pull out a win with only 2 of their 9 starters exceeding their projected points.
    • 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 16.20 points.
    • The 13.20 points scored by Alfred Morris was the seventh-highest score of any RB in the league this week.
    • Both of the RBs came in below their expected points and it was still a win for Nicky The Bat.

    Toyota Roster Tune-up

    • Beats by Ray should get prescription glasses. At least we assume that's why they didn't bother reading the expert articles from the Toyota Hall Of Fame.
    • They say a little knowledge is a dangerous thing. Acquired and started Ben Tate, who scored -0.90 points, the fewest of any player in the matchup.
    • 7 of the starters on Beats by Ray underperformed versus their projections.
    • Colin Kaepernick has now failed to reach his projection for four straight games. This week he scored 14.12 points versus a projected 19.02.
    • The 10.30 points scored by Demaryius Thomas fell short of his 13.53-point projection, the fourth straight game where that has happened.

    • If Nicky The Bat played Beats by Ray every week, they would be 8-3 this season.
    • Besides Beats by Ray, Nicky The Bat would have defeated three other teams this week.
    • Were they resting their players for this week? Nicky The Bat would have defeated Beats by Ray 82.18 - 47.80 had they played each other last week.
    • Nicky The Bat would be 6-3 if they played the same schedule as Beats by Ray.

    • Not going to name names, but some people here aren't pulling their weight. Forget it, the Denver Broncos Defense needs to step it up! They scored 3.00 points against a projected 9.09 in the win, and has now scored below their projection in three straight games.
    • Just because Robert Horry has seven NBA championship rings, doesn't mean he's one of the greats. Despite being on the winning team, LeSean McCoy scored 10.60 points against a projected 13.49 and has now underachieved in four straight games.

    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.
