    Smooth Moves by Unlikable Rhombus

    • Looks like somebody has an eye for talent. Acquired Dwayne Allen, who exceeded his scoring projection by 195.7%, the fifth-highest percentage in the league.
    • Not the best, but in the conversation. Arian Foster ranked fourth in the league in scoring this week with 29.20 points. It was also the second-highest score of any player on Unlikable Rhombus this season.
    • DeMarco Murray put the team on his back with 17.20 points, the eighth-highest score among RBs in the league this week.
    • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just Dez Bryant posterizing opponents. He had the sixth-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 14.50 points.
    • With only 3 of their 9 starters beating their projected points, Unlikable Rhombus was still able to win.

    Toyota Missed Opportunities

    • The White Mamba may have missed the opportunity for a win, but they gained an opportunity to be mercilessly taunted by Unlikable Rhombus.

    • With 5.70 points against a projected 7.93, Larry Fitzgerald did not meet his projection for the fourth straight game.
    • The RBs on The White Mamba let them down, getting outgunned by the RBs on Unlikable Rhombus 46.40 - 15.60.
    • Gotta hit rock button before you can start to rise. It was a season-low 8.40 points for Antonio Brown this week. It was also a season-low for his performance versus projections, reaching only 62.9% of a projected point total of 13.35.

    Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 5

    Miles Austin Dal - WR 2009 vs. Kansas City 10 receptions, 250 yards, 2 TDs Before Miles Austin gained .142 miles against the Chiefs in early October of '09, he had only topped 45 receiving yards just one other time in his career to that point.

    To say that Austin broke out that day in Kansas City would be an understatement. Austin averaged just north of 20 yards per game in his first four contests of '09, but from Week 5 to Week 17, there was no fantasy WR better than Austin, who averaged 103.3 receiving yards and scored 10 times in that 12-game span.
    Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
