    Smooth Moves by MEGAN's Team

    • Peyton Manning scored a league-high for the most points this season with 58.36 points.
    • Best in the world, Greg Olsen can claim that at least for one week after his 22.20 point performance. It was highest score for any TE this week, as well as the sixth-highest TE score in the league this season.
    • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just Dez Bryant posterizing opponents. He had the fifth-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 19.00 points.
    • Starter Lamar Miller put up a zero, but MEGAN's Team still won.
    • With only 3 of their 10 starters beating their projected points, MEGAN's Team was still able to win.

    Toyota Missed Opportunities

    • Yes, your team could have been better. But if you haven't gotten behind the wheel of the bold new Camry yet, that's your real missed opportunity.
    • This is one of those mistakes that you continuously think about for ten years. Did not start Tony Romo, who scored 40.06 points to rank fifth in the league in scoring.
    • Did not start Golden Tate, who scored 22.90 points, surpassing his projected points by 142.8%, the seventh-highest percentage in the league.
    • This is how people lose everything in casinos. MEGAN's Team thought their luck would change and went back to the well with LeSean McCoy. However, he scored 11.00 points against a projected 21.78 and has now underachieved in three straight games.
    • 8 of the 10 starters scored less than their projected points.

    What If

    • MEGAN's Team would be 2-3 if they played Scum & Villainy every week.
    • MEGAN's Team would have beaten only one other team besides Scum & Villainy this week.
    • MEGAN's Team would be 3-1 if they played the same schedule as Scum & Villainy.
    • If MEGAN's Team had played every team in the league each week, they would be 24-21.
    • Scum & Villainy would have lost to every other team in the league this week.
    • Timing really is everything. MEGAN's Team would have lost to Scum & Villainy 142.22 - 86.90 had they played each other last week.
    • If they played the same schedule as MEGAN's Team, Scum & Villainy would be 2-2.
    • Scum & Villainy would be 23-22 if they played every team every week.

    Game Notes

    • This is the third game in a row where Scum & Villainy has failed to reach their projected points.
    • Scum & Villainy had the league's lowest score of the week for the first time this season.
    • The margin of victory was the ninth-largest in the league this season.
    • MEGAN's Team put up their smallest winning point total of the year.
    • Andre Johnson scored 8.30 points against a projected 12.56 in the win and has now scored below his projection in every game this season.
    • Scum & Villainy got a combined 22.80 points from their WRs, their lowest combined scoring output from the WR position this season.
    • What good are running backs if they are running backwards instead of forwards? The 13.40 total points by the RBs on MEGAN's Team was their smallest RB output this season.
    • MEGAN's Team beat Scum & Villainy at the top, with two of their starters outscoring the leading point-getter for Scum & Villainy.

    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.
