Smooth Moves by Booger

  • The 32.96 points scored by Peyton Manning ranked second in the league in scoring. It is the highest output of any player on Booger this season.
  • Sat Pierre Garcon, who scored fewer points than any WR in the starting lineup with 2.30.
  • Took Philip Rivers out of the starting lineup, who scored 22.82 points on the bench, fewer than the starting QB.
  • The 15.70 points scored by Justin Forsett, who Booger picked up this week, beat his projected point total of 9.53 by 64.8%.
  • The San Diego Chargers Defense overachieved by 140.2%, scoring 16.00 points against a projected 6.66.

Toyota Missed Opportunities

  • Sarah's WINNERS 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.
  • Should have started Ben Tate, who beat his scoring projection with 12.10 points against a projected 7.05.
  • A heated blanket would be a great gift for Zach Ertz during this cold streak. He scored below his projection in three straight games after scoring 3.90 points against a projected 5.38 this week.
  • Booger had a better day at the QB position, topping Sarah's WINNERS 32.96 - 12.64.
  • It was a bad week at RB for Sarah's WINNERS, who was outscored at the position 27.50 - 9.90 by Booger.

What If

  • If Booger played Sarah's WINNERS every week, they would be 1-4 this season.
  • Booger would have beaten four other teams besides Sarah's WINNERS this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Sarah's WINNERS, Booger would be 2-2.
  • If Booger had played every team in the league each week, they would be 16-19.
  • Besides Booger, Sarah's WINNERS would have been defeated by four other teams this week.
  • And they say procrastination doesn't pay off! Had they played each other last week, Booger would have lost to Sarah's WINNERS 128.52 - 95.88.
  • If they played the same schedule as Booger, Sarah's WINNERS would be 1-3.
  • If they played every team every week, Sarah's WINNERS would be 20-15.

Game Notes

  • Although Sarah's WINNERS lost, they did put up the fourth-highest score for a losing team in the league this season.
  • Booger had their highest score of the season with 101.66 points.
  • The RBs on Sarah's WINNERS collectively had their worst week of the season with only 9.90 points.
  • With the win, Booger snapped their four-game losing streak.
  • Brandon Marshall did little to help Booger, underperforming versus projections for the third straight game with 4.40 points against a projected 11.21.
  • Just because Robert Horry has seven NBA championship rings, doesn't mean he's one of the greats. Despite being on the winning team, Brandin Cooks scored 7.10 points against a projected 8.92 and has now underachieved in four straight games.
  • It was the biggest loss of the season for Sarah's WINNERS.
  • Phil Dawson scored 20.00 points, the second-highest K score in the league this season, but it was not enough to tip the scales in favor of Sarah's WINNERS.

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.
