    ZooYork, with "Eye of the Tiger" playing in the background, recorded the highest point total this season and crushed Moxiedrinkers 130 to 64, overcoming a 12-point spread. "You play to win the game. Hello! You play to win the game." Someone please tell this to Moxiedrinkers, who is currently winless.

    Smooth Moves by ZooYork

    • Lean, mean, and haunting your dreams. The San Diego Chargers Defense was a terror this week, accounting for 16 points. It was the highest DEF score of the week and the third-highest score among DEF in the league this season.
    • When is Philip Rivers going to get some respect from the "experts"? With 27 points against a projected 20.22, he ranked fifth in the league in scoring and has now overachieved in four straight games.
    • The 28 points scored by Arian Foster ranked fourth in the league in scoring this week and fifth for any player on ZooYork this season.
    • With 20 points, Matt Forte ranked fourth in scoring among all RBs in the league this week.
    • The 14 points scored by Vincent Jackson was the fifth-highest score by a WR in the league this week.

    Toyota Missed Opportunities

    • Not reading the expert articles from the Hall Of Fame. And if they did, maybe they should pay better attention when they read.
    • Left the Houston Texans Defense on the bench, where they scored 8 points and surpassed their scoring projection by 55.9%, the highest percentage of any player on the team.
    • All that glitters is not gold. Picked up Eddie Royal, who scored 4 points against his projected 6.80.
    • 8 of the 9 starters scored less than their projected points.
    • This is how people lose everything in casinos. ZooYork thought their luck would change and went back to the well with the Seattle Seahawks Defense. However, they scored 2 points against a projected 10.22 and has now underachieved in four straight games.

    What If

    • ZooYork would be 3-2 if they played Moxiedrinkers every week.
    • ZooYork would have been undefeated if they played every team in the league this week.
    • Were they resting their players for this week? ZooYork would have defeated Moxiedrinkers 119 - 107 had they played each other last week.
    • ZooYork would be 1-2-1 if they played the same schedule as Moxiedrinkers.
    • ZooYork would be 21-13-1 if they played every team every week.
    • Moxiedrinkers would have lost to every other team in the league this week.
    • If they played the same schedule as ZooYork, Moxiedrinkers would be 1-3.
    • Moxiedrinkers would be 13-22 if they played every team every week.

    Game Notes

    • All five of the losses for Moxiedrinkers this season have come when their opponent had their highest-scoring week of the season.
    • The matchup had both the highest-scoring and lowest-scoring teams in the league this week.
    • The margin of victory of 66 points set the record as the biggest in the league this season.
    • This was the first time this season that Moxiedrinkers lost by the week's biggest margin.
    • Look here. We're gonna put any recollection of this week in a box, we're gonna lock it up, and we're gonna toss that thing in the ocean. Moxiedrinkers was last in the league in scoring and had their lowest score of the season with 64 points.
    • We don't condone cheating, but this group of wide receivers might want to spray Stickum on their gloves. The 11 total points by the WRs on Moxiedrinkers was their lowest WR output this season.
    • This must be how Jay Leno feels with a garage full of high performance cars. ZooYork got a combined 48 points from their RBs, their highest combined scoring output from the RB position this season.
    • ZooYork had two starters score more points than the highest-scoring starter for Moxiedrinkers.

    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.
