Smooth Moves by Funky Monkeys

  • The Toyota Hall of Fame would have its eyes on you for this week's win. But the Toyota Hall of Fame doesn't have eyes. Obviously.
  • Rob Kelley does not believe in running back by committee. He had the best RB score of the week and the ninth-highest RB score in the league this season with 31.70 points.
  • The 30.10 points scored by Le'Veon Bell ranked eighth in the league in scoring. It was also his highest output of the season.
  • Benched RB Chris Ivory, who scored fewer points than any RB in the starting lineup with 12.40.
  • What do Apache helicopters, F-117 Nighthawks and T.Y. Hilton have in common? They are all dangerous aerial weapons. He ranked fifth in the league in scoring among WRs this week with 18.20 points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Somehow, all of your players had two bye weeks this week. The Toyota Hall of Fame calls that a bye bye week. Yes, it's a bad joke, but it's still better than your score.
  • Did not start the Carolina Panthers Defense, which scored 13.00 points and beat their projected point total by a team-leading 94.6%.
  • The RBs for KP's Keelhaulers got outscored 61.80 - 21.80 by the RBs for Funky Monkeys.
  • Cameron Brate was last in the matchup in scoring with 2.80 points against a projected 7.89 and underachieved for the fourth time this season.
  • Of the 8 starters on KP's Keelhaulers, 5 underperformed versus their projections.

What If

  • If Funky Monkeys played KP's Keelhaulers every week, they'd be 6-5 this season.
  • Funky Monkeys would have beaten eight other teams besides KP's Keelhaulers this week.
  • Were they resting their players for this week? Funky Monkeys would have defeated KP's Keelhaulers 144.00 - 142.75 had they played each other last week.
  • Funky Monkeys would be 7-3 if they played the same schedule as KP's Keelhaulers.
  • Funky Monkeys would be 71-50 if they played every team every week.
  • Besides Funky Monkeys, KP's Keelhaulers would have been defeated by six other teams this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Funky Monkeys, KP's Keelhaulers would be 5-5.
  • KP's Keelhaulers would be 60-61 if they played every team every week.

Game Notes

  • A silver lining in the loss: KP's Keelhaulers had their highest losing score of the season with 95.00 points.
  • With a combined 61.80 points from the RB position, Funky Monkeys got the highest combined scoring output from the RB position for any team this season.
  • KP's Keelhaulers topped their point expectations for the fifth week in a row. They have now overperformed versus projections for the sixth time.
  • Despite playing on the losing team, Marcus Mariota ranked 10th in the league in scoring with 29.40 points against a projected 23.56 and has now beaten his projection in four straight games.
  • Funky Monkeys was not able to cover the 28.71-point spread in the win.
  • The loss snapped a four-game win streak by KP's Keelhaulers.
  • Funky Monkeys beat KP's Keelhaulers at the top, with two of their starters outscoring the leading point-getter for KP's Keelhaulers.
  • Just because Robert Horry has seven NBA championship rings, doesn't mean he's one of the greats. Despite being on the winning team, the New England Patriots Defense scored 6.00 points against a projected 9.98 and has now underachieved in five straight games.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 11

Thomas Rawls Sea - RB 2015 vs. San Francisco 209 rushing yards, 46 receiving yards, 2 touchdowns An undrafted rookie from Central Michigan, Rawls, filling in for an injured Marshawn Lynch, put on his best Beast Mode impersonation in Week 11 against the 49ers.

In just his fourth NFL start, Rawls plowed his way to 209 rushing yards and a rushing score. He also flashed some versatility with 46 receiving yards and a TD catch. His fantasy total would wind up being the second-best by a running back during the 2015 season, trailing only Arizona rookie David Johnson’s Week 15 effort.
