    • 3-2
    • Weekly Grade: C+
    • 87.78
    • Zach's Team
    • 1-4

    • 55.4

    Evan's Terrific Team got 20.98 points from Tom Brady and 19.40 from Golden Tate, destroying Zach's Team 87.78 to 55.40. Is this fantasy football or mixed martial arts? Because this 32.38-point margin of victory was nothing short of a beatdown and was the fourth-highest recorded in the league this season. Zach's Team was led by the tag team of Stephen Gostkowski, with 21.00 points, and Dwayne Allen, who scored 11.90. To make matters worse, Zach's Team had a starter score zero points (Robert Griffin III). Evan's Terrific Team (3-2, 420.32 points) climbs into fifth place and Zach's Team (1-4, 368.90 points) stays down in eighth place.

    Smooth Moves by Evan's Terrific Team

    • What do Apache helicopters, F-117 Nighthawks and Golden Tate have in common? They are all dangerous aerial weapons. He ranked fourth in the league in scoring among WRs this week with 19.40 points.
    • Tom Brady had the fourth-highest score of any player on Evan's Terrific Team this season, leading the team with 20.98 points.

    • Even with both of their RBs falling short of their projected scores, Evan's Terrific Team still won.

    Toyota Missed Opportunities

    • Zach'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.
    • Left Pierre Thomas on the bench, where he scored the eighth-most points in the league and beat his projected point total by 208.6%, the second-highest percentage in the league.
    • Should have started Cam Newton, who underachieved, but still had more points than the starting QB with 16.10 against a projected 17.22.
    • The Cincinnati Bengals Defense scored the fewest points in the league this week with a season-low -3.00 points.
    • Zach's Team would have welcomed more points at WR, where Evan's Terrific Team topped them 32.60 - 9.90.

    What If

    • If Evan's Terrific Team played Zach's Team every week, they would be 3-2 this season.
    • Besides Zach's Team, Evan's Terrific Team would have defeated four other teams this week.
    • Had they played each other last week, Evan's Terrific Team would have defeated Zach's Team 73.16 - 70.18.
    • Evan's Terrific Team would be 1-3 if they played the same schedule as Zach's Team.
    • If Evan's Terrific Team had played every team in the league each week, they would be 19-26.
    • Zach's Team would have lost to every other team in the league this week.
    • Zach's Team would be 1-3 if they played the same schedule as Evan's Terrific Team.
    • If they played every team every week, Zach's Team would be 11-34.

    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.
