  • Weekly Grade: C-
  • 224.58

Cowboys #1 played out of their minds, registering the second-highest score in the league this week to get past Big O's Cowboys 319.88 to 224.58. Big O's Cowboys (6-5) sits just two games back of Cowboys #1 (8-3), but point totals show they should be happy with that because they are a lot further behind there, 3,683.36 to 3,037.76. Cowboys #1 might as well be named "Butter" because they're on a roll. Scoring 4.0% more than projected, they've beaten expectations four weeks running. To make matters worse, Big O's Cowboys had a starter score zero points (Marshawn Lynch).

Smooth Moves by Cowboys #1

  • We won't judge you if you want to bow to Carson Palmer. He ranked second in the league in scoring with 120.58 points.
  • LeSean McCoy put the team on his back with 46.30 points, the fourth-highest score among RBs in the league this week.
  • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just Julio Jones posterizing opponents. He had the third-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 42.00 points.
  • This is the bar, and this is the team jumping over it. Cowboys #1 had 6 of their 10 starters exceed their projected points.
  • The 18.60 points scored by Vincent Jackson outpaced his 15.25-point scoring projection by 22.0%.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • This is one of those mistakes that you continuously think about for ten years. Did not start Jameis Winston, who scored 109.84 points to rank fifth in the league in scoring.
  • Remember this moment, Big O's Cowboys. This is the moment where you turn your team around and start managing like someone worthy of the Hall.
  • It was a poor performance for Big O's Cowboys at WR, where they were outdone by Cowboys #1 79.80 - 23.40.
  • Jason Witten has now failed to reach his projection for four straight games. This week he scored 6.70 points versus a projected 15.87.
  • With a season-low 5.10 points versus a projected 19.25, T.Y. Hilton failed to meet his projection for the fifth time this season.

  • If Cowboys #1 played Big O's Cowboys every week, they'd be 8-3 this season.
  • Besides Big O's Cowboys, Cowboys #1 would have defeated nine other teams this week.
  • Were they resting their players for this week? Cowboys #1 would have defeated Big O's Cowboys 320.26 - 225.04 had they played each other last week.
  • Cowboys #1 would be 9-1 if they played the same schedule as Big O's Cowboys.
  • If Cowboys #1 had played every team in the league each week, they would be 92-29.
  • Big O's Cowboys would have lost to seven other teams besides Cowboys #1 this week.

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.
