    Smooth Moves by I Hate Bennett

    • Not quite the best, but pretty darn good. Andre Ellington had the third-highest RB score of the week and the sixth-highest RB score in the league this season with 26.40 points.
    • Eddie Lacy didn't have the best score of the week, but there ain't no shame in his game. He had 25.20 points, the fourth-highest RB score of the week and the eighth-highest RB score in the league this season.
    • Apparently playing within themselves was good enough. I Hate Bennett won despite having only 4 of their 9 starters exceed their projected points.
    • I Hate Bennett won even though both of their WRs scored below their projected points.

    Toyota Missed Opportunities

    • MartinLubeHerThingJr should have scored more than 104.24 in order to win. That's Hall Of Fame level insight. 
    • This is one of those mistakes that you continuously think about for ten years. Did not start Jay Cutler, who scored 23.76 points to rank eighth in the league in scoring.
    • Ben Tate was left on the bench, where he bested his expected 7.05-point total by putting up 12.10 points.
    • MartinLubeHerThingJr had 8 starters fail to reach their projections.
    • This is how people lose everything in casinos. I Hate Bennett thought their luck would change and went back to the well with Zach Ertz. However, he scored 3.90 points against a projected 5.38 and has now underachieved 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.
