Smooth Moves by Prestige Worldwide

  • With 38.60 points, Demaryius Thomas ranked eighth in the league in scoring this week and had the fourth-highest score of any player on Prestige Worldwide this season.
  • Made the right move in benching Jerricho Cotchery, who had 6.10 points, the lowest total of any starting WR on Prestige Worldwide.

Toyota Missed Opportunities

  • BulletProof Bacon may have missed the opportunity for a win, but they gained an opportunity to be mercilessly taunted by Prestige Worldwide. 
  • Left Kendall Wright on the bench, where he scored 24.20 points and beat his projected point total by 140.6%, the eighth-highest percentage in the league this week.
  • This is how people lose everything in casinos. Prestige Worldwide thought their luck would change and went back to the well with Brandon Marshall. However, he scored 5.90 points against a projected 13.99 and has now underachieved in three straight games.
  • The WR corps couldn't keep pace with their counterparts from Prestige Worldwide and were outscored 57.30 - 23.80.
  • Cordarrelle Patterson did not meet his 9.68 projected points and has now underperformed versus projections for four straight weeks. He also scored a season-low 1.80 points.

What If

  • Prestige Worldwide would be 2-3 if they played BulletProof Bacon every week.
  • Prestige Worldwide would have beaten every other team in the league this week.
  • Prestige Worldwide would be 2-2 if they played the same schedule as BulletProof Bacon.
  • If Prestige Worldwide had played every team in the league each week, they would be 27-18.
  • BulletProof Bacon would have lost to three other teams besides Prestige Worldwide this week.
  • And they say procrastination doesn't pay off! Had they played each other last week, Prestige Worldwide would have lost to BulletProof Bacon 158.22 - 151.76.
  • If they played the same schedule as Prestige Worldwide, BulletProof Bacon would be 2-2.
  • BulletProof Bacon would be 32-13 if they played every team every week.

Game Notes

  • In the loss, Andrew Luck ranked fourth in the league in scoring with 42.18 points against a projected 35.16 and has now overachieved in every game this season.
  • The 163.44 points scored by Prestige Worldwide was the highest in the league this week and the third-highest in the league this season.
  • Hey, I'm sure Prestige Worldwide appreciates the tough competition. In the loss, BulletProof Bacon had the fourth-highest losing score in the league this season with 140.18 points.
  • With a combined 27.60 points from their RBs, Prestige Worldwide got their highest combined scoring output from the RB position this season.
  • Prestige Worldwide had their largest margin of victory so far this year at 23.26 points.
  • BulletProof Bacon saw their four-game win streak come to an end.
  • Not going to name names, but some people here aren't pulling their weight. Forget it, Marques Colston needs to step it up! He scored 7.80 points against a projected 10.41 in the win, and has now scored below his projection in four straight games.
  • With the loss, BulletProof Bacon falls to 1-1 in comeback games this season.

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.
