    If you're looking for heroes from Week 11 of the fantasy football season, there were plenty in Sunday's overtime game between the one-loss Houston Texans and the complete opposite, the Jacksonville Jaguars.

    There were no bigger performances than that of Houston quarterback Matt Schaub, who often takes a backseat to the Texans' running game. Schaub had a career day on Sunday, throwing for 527 yards and five touchdowns with two interceptions while completing 43 of his 55 pass attempts.

    There's also Andre Johnson, who had his best game of the year by far, hauling in 14 passes for 273 yards and the game-winning touchdown in overtime. Then there's Jacksonville rookie wide receiver Justin Blackmon, who was a top-10 pick out of Oklahoma State but has had his expected struggles by a rookie wideout.

    His breakout came in a huge way on Sunday when he caught seven balls for 236 yards and a touchdown, all coming from backup quarterback Chad Henne, who replaced Blaine Gabbert early in the game and went on to throw for 354 yards and four touchdowns with no picks.

    There was also a goat in that game, as Arian Foster, as mentioned, took a backseat for once to the Texans' passing game and rushed for just 77 yards and no scores against a hapless run defense for the Jaguars.
