    Smooth Moves by Slob

    • Added Demaryius Thomas, who exceeded his scoring projection by a matchup-leading 155.7%.
    • Tony Romo scored 23.96 points against a projected 19.00 and has now overachieved in three straight games.
    • With 14.40 points, Vincent Jackson ranked eighth in the league in scoring among WRs this week.
    • Apparently playing within themselves was good enough. Slob won despite having only 4 of their 9 starters exceed their projected points.
    • Slob won even though all three of their RBs scored below their projected points.

    Toyota Missed Opportunities

    • Landis may have missed the opportunity for a win, but they gained an opportunity to be mercilessly taunted by Slob. 
    • With 3.90 points against a projected 5.40, Zach Ertz did not meet his projection for the third straight game.
    • It's times like these when it's important to support your players when they're down. So move the mouse pointer away from the DROP button. Percy Harvin scored a season-low 3.40 points, 35.0% of his projected 9.72, which is his lowest percentage of the year.
    • Of the 9 starters on Landis, 6 underperformed versus their projections.
    • Rashad Jennings could not reach his projected point total, scoring only 43.8% of his 16.42-point projection with 7.20 points.

    What If

    • If Slob played Landis every week, they would be 3-2 this season.
    • Besides Landis, Slob would have defeated five other teams this week.
    • Had they played each other last week, Slob would have defeated Landis 80.48 - 74.28.
    • Slob would be 1-3 if they played the same schedule as Landis.
    • If Slob had played every team in the league each week, they would be 20-25.
    • Landis would have lost to three other teams besides Slob this week.
    • Landis would be 2-2 if they played the same schedule as Slob.
    • Landis would be 23-22 if they played every team every week.

    • At 3.20 points, the margin of victory was the smallest in the league this season.
    • Don't you hate that guy that always has to one-up everybody? Landis scored 105.86 points and lost. It is the third-highest losing score in the league this season.
    • Peyton Manning led the league in scoring in the loss. He also had the highest score of any QB in the league this season with 40.96 points.
    • With a combined 49.00 points from their WRs, Slob got their highest combined scoring output from the WR position this season.
    • With 109.06 points, Slob had their highest score so far this season.

    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.
