    Toyota Missed Opportunities

    • 8 of the starters on Freight Train underperformed versus their projections.
    • Pierre Garcon fell short of his scoring projection with 1.70 points, just 13.6% of his projected 12.52.
    • Larry Fitzgerald underachieved, scoring 8.10 points, only 77.4% of his projected 10.46.

    • If Prestige Worldwide played Freight Train every week, they would be 1-1 this season.
    • Prestige Worldwide would have beaten four other teams besides Freight Train this week.
    • If Prestige Worldwide had played every team in the league each week, they would be 7-11.
    • Freight Train would have lost to five other teams besides Prestige Worldwide this week.
    • Timing really is everything. Prestige Worldwide would have lost to Freight Train 132.62 - 130.46 had they played each other last week.
    • Freight Train would be 6-12 if they played every team every week.

    Game Notes

    • The margin of victory of 11.76 points was the smallest in the league this week.
    • Prestige Worldwide got 10.60 points from their RBs this week, the lowest combined scoring output from the RB position for any team this week.
    • In the loss, Drew Brees ranked sixth in the league in scoring with 35.38 points.
    • In the loss, Emmanuel Sanders had the ninth-highest WR score in the league this week with 14.70 points.
    • In the loss, Mason Crosby scored 13.00 points against a projected 9.40 and exceeded his scoring projection by 38.3%.
    • Prestige Worldwide might want to see a chiropractor, because they were carrying Knowshon Moreno on their back the whole week. He was on the winning team, but only scored 0.50 points against his projected 11.98.
    • Both teams failed to score as many points as projected for the week.

    Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 2

    Chris Johnson Ten - RB 2009 vs. Houston 16 carries, 197 rushing yards, 9 receptions, 87 receiving yards, 3 TDs In the opening week of the '09 campaign, Titans RB Chris Johnson did little to tip his hand that he was about to threaten the NFL's all-time single-season rushing record, debuting that season with a meager 57 rushing yards (0 TD) against Pittsburgh.

    But in Week 2, he let the cat out of the bag with an explosive 284 total yard effort against the Texans that included a TD hat trick. In a season in which he garnered the nickname CJ2K for the 2,006 rushing yards that he finished the season with, Week 2 was his finest individual fantasy effort.
    Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
