    Smooth Moves by KimP's Expert Team

    • Philip Rivers brought in 52.10 points, which was good enough to rank second in the league in scoring this week and second-best of any player on KimP's Expert Team this season.
    • Took Niles Paul out of the starting lineup, who scored 0.60 points on the bench, fewer than the starting TE.
    • With 15.70 points, Justin Forsett, who KimP's Expert Team picked up this week, beat his 10.06-point projection by 56.1%.
    • Brian Quick scored 23.70 points, the third-highest WR score in the league this week.
    • With 7.50 points, Travis Kelce had the fifth-highest score of any TE in the league this week.

    Toyota Missed Opportunities

    • Bush may have missed the opportunity for a win, but they gained an opportunity to be mercilessly taunted by KimP's Expert Team. 
    • Should have started Jason Witten, who underachieved, but still had more points than the starting TE with 5.90 against a projected 6.84.
    • Bush had 7 starters fail to reach their projections.
    • A heated blanket would be a great gift for Doug Baldwin during this cold streak. He scored below his projection in four straight games after scoring 5.00 points against a projected 7.47 this week.
    • It was a poor performance for Bush at WR, where they were outdone by KimP's Expert Team 38.00 - 8.00.

    What If

    • KimP's Expert Team would be 3-2 if they played Bush every week.
    • Besides Bush, KimP's Expert Team would have defeated four other teams this week.
    • Had they played each other last week, KimP's Expert Team would have defeated Bush 131.00 - 106.90.
    • KimP's Expert Team would be 3-1 if they played the same schedule as Bush.
    • If KimP's Expert Team had played every team in the league each week, they would be 22-23.
    • Bush would have lost to every other team in the league this week.
    • Bush would be 1-3 if they played the same schedule as KimP's Expert Team.
    • Bush would be 18-27 if they played every team every week.

    Game Notes

    • KimP's Expert Team was able to win with little help from Calvin Johnson, who had a season-low 0.70 points and is on a four-week underperforming streak.

    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.
