    Smooth Moves by Karen's Team

    • DeMarco Murray put the team on his back with 21.30 points, the second-highest score among RBs in the league this week.
    • What do Apache helicopters, F-117 Nighthawks and Julian Edelman have in common? They are all dangerous aerial weapons. He ranked seventh in the league in scoring among WRs this week with 15.00 points.
    • The Arizona Cardinals Defense exceeded scoring projections by 81.2%, with 17.00 points against a projected 9.38.
    • Did you use any black magic this week? Karen's Team was still able to pull out a win with only 4 of their 9 starters exceeding their projected points.

    Toyota Missed Opportunities

    • Amy's Team should get prescription glasses. At least we assume that's why they didn't bother reading the expert articles from the Toyota Hall Of Fame.
    • Did not start Philip Rivers, who led the matchup in scoring with 25.06 points.
    • Did not start Nick Novak, who scored 15.00 points and beat his projected point total by a team-leading 83.2%.
    • 7 of the 9 starters scored less than their projected points.
    • Torrey Smith had the lowest point total in the matchup with 1.00 point.

    • Karen's Team would have been undefeated if they played every team in the league this week.
    • Were they resting their players for this week? Karen's Team would have defeated Amy's Team 109.02 - 100.26 had they played each other last week.

    Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 2

    Chris Johnson Ten - RB 2009 vs. Houston 16 carries, 197 rushing yards, 9 receptions, 87 receiving yards, 3 TDs In the opening week of the '09 campaign, Titans RB Chris Johnson did little to tip his hand that he was about to threaten the NFL's all-time single-season rushing record, debuting that season with a meager 57 rushing yards (0 TD) against Pittsburgh.

    But in Week 2, he let the cat out of the bag with an explosive 284 total yard effort against the Texans that included a TD hat trick. In a season in which he garnered the nickname CJ2K for the 2,006 rushing yards that he finished the season with, Week 2 was his finest individual fantasy effort.
    Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
