    Smooth Moves by Head of State Nate

    • Eddie Lacy felt like the Rodney Dangerfield of football, 'no respect at all' with this week's projected points. He scored the sixth-most points in the league and beat his projected point total by 78.3%, the ninth-highest percentage in the league.
    • With 21.00 points, Brandon Marshall got the ninth-largest point total in the league and beat his projected points by 86.1%, which was the sixth-biggest percentage in the league.
    • Benched RB Bobby Rainey, who scored fewer points than any RB in the starting lineup with 0.40.
    • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just Emmanuel Sanders posterizing opponents. He had the eighth-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 16.20 points.
    • This is the bar, and this is the team jumping over it. Head of State Nate had 5 of their 9 starters exceed their projected points.

    Toyota Roster Tune-up

    • Yes, your team could have been better. But if you haven't gotten behind the wheel of the bold new Camry yet, that's your real missed opportunity.
    • With 3.00 points against a projected 8.53, the Denver Broncos Defense did not meet their projection for the third straight game.
    • This is how people lose everything in casinos. Madden 64 thought their luck would change and went back to the well with LeSean McCoy. However, he scored 10.60 points against a projected 13.50 and has now underachieved in four straight games.
    • A heated blanket would be a great gift for Andre Johnson during this cold streak. He scored below his projection in four straight games after scoring 6.80 points against a projected 9.40 this week.
    • Madden 64 tried to fight through 2 of their 9 starters getting zeros, but could not overcome it.

    What If

    • If Head of State Nate played Madden 64 every week, they would be 7-4 this season.
    • Head of State Nate would have beaten every other team in the league this week.
    • Had they played each other last week, Head of State Nate would have defeated Madden 64 96.24 - 79.58.
    • If they played the same schedule as Madden 64, Head of State Nate would be 6-3.
    • If Head of State Nate had played every team in the league each week, they would be 60-39.
    • Besides Head of State Nate, Madden 64 would have been defeated by five other teams this week.
    • If they played the same schedule as Head of State Nate, Madden 64 would be 2-7.

    • The tragedy of being an underachiever is that Madden 64 knows what they should be, but reality keeps telling them that they're wrong. They scored 89.82 points against a projected 98.16 and underachieved for the ninth time this season, including the last three weeks in a row.

    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.
