G Men, down 8.56 on Monday night, gave Vancleave Bulldogs a glimmer of hope, then ripped it away and defeated Vancleave Bulldogs 179.58 to 159.44. G Men benefited from 50.18 points from Marcus Mariota and 42.80 from Doug Martin. It seems like Vancleave Bulldogs showed up to the draft and then disappeared. They have gone all season without a win. Vancleave Bulldogs was coming off a 213.06 to 115.56 loss against Cosby's Sleepers and saw their scoring increase this week. If Vancleave Bulldogs didn't have three starters put up goose eggs, it could have gone the other way. G Men (2-3, 782.14 points) climbs into sixth place and Vancleave Bulldogs (0-5, 764.24 points) stays mired in last place.

Smooth Moves by G Men

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 5

Steve Largent Sea - WR 1987 vs. Detroit 15 catches, 261 yards, 3 TDs Hall of Fame receiver Steve Largent is no scrub, and he proved that emphatically in Week 5 of the strike-plagued ’87 season.

Largent crossed the picket line a week before the strike ended, affording him an opportunity to face a Detroit defense full of replacement players. Largent took full advantage of the sub-par competition, rolling up a dreamy PPR line of 15 catches, 261 yards and a TD hat trick. It was the last time in Largent’s storied NFL career that he would reach 100 yards or score multiple touchdowns in a game.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
