Team Denietolis (3-2, 490 points) recorded the highest point total they've scored this season to easily dispatch Diet Moxie (1-4, 397 points) 119 to 78. A good beginning makes a good ending, and Team Denietolis took that to heart when they went into Sunday in front 9 to 6. After the late Sunday games, they lost that lead and fell behind 61 to 48. However, Team Denietolis delivered the last blow right to the jugular and came out of the Sunday night game ahead by 20.

Smooth Moves by Team Denietolis

  • The iron toe award goes to Stephen Gostkowski. The highest score by any K in the league to date, posting 21 points.
  • Russell Wilson had 38 points, the second-highest QB score of the week and the third-highest QB score in the league this season.
  • Wisely sat Cam Newton this week, who had 18 points, the lowest QB score on the team.
  • DeMarco Murray scored 16 points, which ranked sixth out of all the RBs in the league this week.
  • With 12 points, A.J. Green ranked ninth in the league in scoring among WRs this week.

Toyota Missed Opportunities

  • After that performance, we have to wonder if Diet Moxie cares about becoming a Hall Of Famer at all. That's right, you're being judged by an online recap. 
  • Missed out on an opportunity by leaving the 19 points scored by Golden Tate on the bench this week. He outperformed his projected point total by 210.5%, the third-highest percentage in the league.
  • Drew Brees scored 20 points against a projected 26.24 and has now underachieved in every game this season.
  • Diet Moxie had 7 of their 9 starters score less than their projected points.
  • This is how people lose everything in casinos. Team Denietolis thought their luck would change and went back to the well with Larry Fitzgerald. However, he scored 5 points against a projected 7.86 and has now underachieved in four straight games.

What If

  • Team Denietolis would be 4-1 if they played Diet Moxie every week.
  • Besides Diet Moxie, Team Denietolis would have defeated four other teams this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Diet Moxie, Team Denietolis would be 2-2.
  • If Team Denietolis had played every team in the league each week, they would be 18-16-1.
  • Besides Team Denietolis, Diet Moxie would have been defeated by three other teams this week.
  • And they say procrastination doesn't pay off! Had they played each other last week, Team Denietolis would have lost to Diet Moxie 108 - 77.
  • If they played the same schedule as Team Denietolis, Diet Moxie would be 0-4.
  • Diet Moxie would be 10-25 if they played every team every week.

Game Notes

  • Three of the four losses for Diet Moxie this season have come when their opponent had their highest-scoring week of the season.
  • Hey, I'm sure Team Denietolis appreciates the tough competition. In the loss, Diet Moxie had the ninth-highest losing score in the league this season with 78 points.
  • Team Denietolis had their highest score of the season and the fourth-highest in the league this season with 119 points.
  • The margin of victory of 41 points was the biggest of the season for Team Denietolis and third-largest in the league this season.
  • Diet Moxie got their lowest combined scoring output from the WR position this season with only 7 points this week.
  • Team Denietolis had two starters score more points than the highest-scoring starter for Diet Moxie.
  • Just because Robert Horry has seven NBA championship rings, doesn't mean he's one of the greats. Despite being on the winning team, LeSean McCoy scored 6 points against a projected 17.04 and has now underachieved in three straight games.
  • Not going to name names, but some people here aren't pulling their weight. Forget it, Jordan Cameron needs to step it up! He scored 3 points against a projected 6.06 in the win, and has now scored below his projection in three straight games.

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.
