Andy Dalton, whose 28.04 points were the third-highest point total by a player this week, carried ANY1BUTHILARY past Luis's Legit Team 87.74 to 85.24.

  • This must be how Jay Leno feels with a garage full of high performance cars. Luis's Legit Team got a combined 23.00 points from their RBs, their highest combined scoring output from the RB position this season.
  • Although ANY1BUTHILARY won, it was no thanks to Eddie Lacy, who scored 3.50 points and has now scored below his projection in four straight weeks.
  • Just because Robert Horry has seven NBA championship rings, doesn't mean he's one of the greats. Despite being on the winning team, Michael Crabtree scored 5.40 points against a projected 8.08 and has now underachieved in three straight games.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 5

Steve Largent Sea - WR 1987 vs. Detroit 15 catches, 261 yards, 3 TDs Hall of Fame receiver Steve Largent is no scrub, and he proved that emphatically in Week 5 of the strike-plagued ’87 season.

Largent crossed the picket line a week before the strike ended, affording him an opportunity to face a Detroit defense full of replacement players. Largent took full advantage of the sub-par competition, rolling up a dreamy PPR line of 15 catches, 261 yards and a TD hat trick. It was the last time in Largent’s storied NFL career that he would reach 100 yards or score multiple touchdowns in a game.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
