Toyota Missed Opportunities

  • Remember that thing Michael's Team did instead of reading the expert articles from the Hall Of Fame? Shouldn't have done that.

  • If they played the same schedule as Sabo's Splendid Team, Michael's Team would be 1-3.
  • If they played every team every week, Michael's Team would be 21-24.

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.
