    Smooth Moves by Cam

    • Russell Wilson had 40.25 points, the second-highest QB score of the week and the sixth-highest QB score in the league this season.
    • Took Tom Brady out of the starting lineup, who scored 27.90 points on the bench, fewer than the starting QB.
    • Put WR Michael Crabtree on the bench, where he scored 3.00 points, fewer than any WR in the starting lineup.
    • What do Apache helicopters, F-117 Nighthawks and Dez Bryant have in common? They are all dangerous aerial weapons. He ranked sixth in the league in scoring among WRs this week with 25.63 points.
    • This is the bar, and this is the team jumping over it. Cam had 5 of their 9 starters exceed their projected points.

    Toyota Missed Opportunities

    • The Dominator 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.
    • Who needs offense when the defense is so dominant!? The Dominator got outscored 13.00 - 6.00 by Cam at the DEF position.
    • You wish you had a kicker like ours. Cam won the K position battle, beating The Dominator 10.00 - 4.00.
    • The 10.88 points scored by Marques Colston was a season-low. He had a projected 14.32-point total, and has now underachieved in three straight games.
    • The Dominator had 5 of their 9 starters score less than their projected points.

    What If

    • If Cam played The Dominator every week, they would be 4-1 this season.
    • Besides The Dominator, Cam would have defeated six other teams this week.
    • If they played the same schedule as The Dominator, Cam would be 3-1.
    • Cam would be 34-11 if they played every team every week.
    • The Dominator would have lost to four other teams besides Cam this week.
    • Timing really is everything. Cam would have lost to The Dominator 165.64 - 124.83 had they played each other last week.
    • If they played the same schedule as Cam, The Dominator would be 1-3.
    • The Dominator would be 18-27 if they played every team every week.

    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.
