    • The New England Patriots Defense had 14 points, the second-highest DEF score of the week and the fourth-highest score among DEF in the league this season.

    Toyota Missed Opportunities

    • The Lungbutters probably blew their shot at becoming a Toyota Hall Of Famer with that loss, but there's a bright side. Let us know when you find it.

    • Andre Johnson has scored below his projection in every game this season after scoring 5 points against a projected 9.62 this week.
    • Lost to Porcupine Speedboat, which had their lowest-scoring week of the season.
    • The TE position was a letdown for The Lungbutters, where they were outscored 18 - 5 by Porcupine Speedboat.

    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.
