Smooth Moves by Johnsons Jabronies

  • Johnsons Jabronies scored massive brownie points with the Toyota Hall of Fame this week. Too bad brownie points don't count as real points. Not that you need help.
  • Kirk Cousins brought in 39 points, which was good enough to rank third in the league in scoring this week and second-best of any player on Johnsons Jabronies this season.
  • Expect to see some trade offers for David Johnson. He ranked seventh in the league in scoring with 32 points.
  • Took Caleb Sturgis out of the starting lineup, who scored 1 point on the bench, fewer than the starting K.
  • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just Jamison Crowder posterizing opponents. He had the second-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 20 points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Don't worry, RookieRunning, the Toyota Hall of Fame says losing isn't contagious. But it is embarrassing. And you should be embarrassed.
  • A heated blanket would be a great gift for Justin Tucker during this cold streak. He scored below his projection in three straight games after scoring 6 points against a projected 10.31 this week.
  • You've gotta hit rock button before you can start to rise. It was a season-low 12 points for Ezekiel Elliott this week. It was also a season-low for his performance versus projections, reaching only 91.4% of a projected point total of 13.13.
  • Even though RookieRunning lost, only 5 of their 10 starters scored less than their projected points.
  • Greg Olsen fell short of his scoring projection with 3 points, just 28.6% of his projected 10.50.

What If

  • Johnsons Jabronies would be 7-4 if they played RookieRunning every week.
  • Johnsons Jabronies would've been undefeated if they played every team in the league this week.
  • Were they resting their players for this week? Johnsons Jabronies would have defeated RookieRunning 155 - 132 had they played each other last week.
  • If they played the same schedule as RookieRunning, Johnsons Jabronies would be 9-1.
  • If Johnsons Jabronies had played every team in the league each week, they would be 84-35-2.
  • RookieRunning would not have lost to any other team in the league besides Johnsons Jabronies this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Johnsons Jabronies, RookieRunning would be 6-4.
  • RookieRunning would be 72-49 if they played every team every week.

Game Notes

  • Clash of the Titans! These two squads were the highest-scoring teams in the league this week.
  • In the loss, Dak Prescott ranked fourth in the league in scoring with 37 points against a projected 17.64 and has now overachieved in eight straight games.
  • Johnsons Jabronies beat their scoring projection for the eighth time this season by scoring 139 points against a projected 108.12. They have now overachieved three weeks in a row.
  • At 1 point, the margin of victory was the smallest in the league this season.
  • Hey, I'm sure Johnsons Jabronies appreciates the tough competition. In the loss, RookieRunning had the fourth-highest losing score in the league this season with 138 points.
  • The WRs on RookieRunning collectively had their best week of the season with 56 points.
  • Frank Gore scored 12 points against a projected 8.82 in the loss and has now beaten his projection in five straight games.
  • Not going to name names, but some people here aren't pulling their weight. Forget it, Adam Vinatieri needs to step it up! He scored 7 points against a projected 9.58 in the win, and has now scored below his projection in three 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.
