Smooth Moves by Thing One

  • Fantasy Football is a game where the high score wins. So keep doing what you have to do, the Toyota Hall of Fame will turn a blind eye.
  • David Johnson felt like the Rodney Dangerfield of football, 'no respect at all' with this week's projected points. He scored the third-most points in the league and beat his projected point total by 75.8%, the seventh-highest percentage in the league.
  • With 25.64 points, Dak Prescott got the sixth-largest point total in the league and beat his projected points by 65.7%, which was the ninth-biggest percentage in the league.
  • The Minnesota Vikings Defense seemed to take offense to this week's projected points. They ranked 10th in the league in scoring and beat their scoring projection by 110.3%, the third-highest percentage in the league.
  • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just Doug Baldwin posterizing opponents. He had the fourth-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 15.00 points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Some teams are destined to beat teams like Packers4life and move on to Toyota Hall of Fame greatness. Ironically, you are included in that destiny, because you played yourself.
  • All that glitters is not gold. Picked up Davante Adams, who scored 4.20 points against his projected 6.10.
  • 7 of the starters on Packers4life underperformed versus their projections.
  • With 6.00 points against a projected 9.37, Justin Tucker did not meet his projection for the third straight game.
  • It was a beating at QB for Packers4life, as they were outscored 25.64 - 12.38 by Thing One.

What If

  • If Thing One played Packers4life every week, they'd be 8-3 this year.
  • Thing One would've been undefeated if they played every team in the league this week.
  • Were they resting their players for this week? Thing One would have defeated Packers4life 124.66 - 122.14 had they played each other last week.
  • Thing One would be 6-3 if they played the same schedule as Packers4life.
  • Thing One would be 55-22 if they played every team every week.
  • Packers4life would have lost to just two other teams besides Thing One this week.
  • Packers4life would be 6-3 if they played the same schedule as Thing One.
  • Packers4life would be 44-33 if they played every team every week.

Game Notes

  • Maybe the league is colluding against them. All four of the losses for Packers4life this season have come when their opponent scores higher than their season average.

  • Thing One got the best total score from their RBs of any team this week with 40.40 points.
  • The Pittsburgh Steelers Defense scored 22.00 points, the fifth-highest DEF score in the league this season, but it was not enough to tip the scales in favor of Packers4life.
  • Thing One outdid their projection in the win, while Packers4life came in under their point expectation. Thing One is now 6-1 when overachieving, while Packers4life falls to 4-3 when failing to reach their projection.

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.
