    My Team has to be feeling good about their squad after they amassed the highest point total in the league this week to beat Tropics 110.38 to 78.34. My Team met their projections and scored 2.6% more than their projected 107.63 points, while Tropics underwhelmed and scored only 75.5% of a projected 103.77. Following a 113.78 to 73.40 win against NATIVE4LIFE, Tropics saw their scoring fall off this week.

    Smooth Moves by My Team

    • Demaryius Thomas put up video game numbers, scoring a league-high for most points this season with 34.60 points.
    • Expect to see some trade offers for Andrew Luck. He ranked ninth in the league in scoring with 21.68 points.
    • There are rumors that the military wants to model a new all-terrain vehicle based off of Matt Forte. He had the fifth-highest score among RBs in the league this week with 20.60 points.
    • Apparently playing within themselves was good enough. My Team won despite having only 3 of their 9 starters exceed their projected points.
    • Scored 110.38 points from players in the starting lineup versus 39.80 points from players left on the bench to rank second in the league in starter/bench scoring ratio this week.

    Toyota Missed Opportunities

    • Tropics probably blew their shot at becoming a Toyota Hall Of Famer with that loss, but there's a bright side. Let us know when you find it.
    • Did not start Justin Hunter, who scored 15.90 points and beat his projected point total by a team-leading 124.7%.
    • Did not start Tom Brady, who led the team in scoring with 20.98 points.
    • Whoever gave you this advice, you might want to lose their number. Picked up and started Matt Asiata, who then scored below his 11.68-point projection with 5.20 points.
    • The WR corps couldn't keep pace with their counterparts from My Team and were outscored 48.00 - 7.70.

    What If

    • If My Team played Tropics every week, they would be 4-1 this season.
    • My Team would have been undefeated if they played every team in the league this week.
    • Were they resting their players for this week? My Team would have defeated Tropics 116.72 - 113.78 had they played each other last week.
    • My Team would be 3-1 if they played the same schedule as Tropics.
    • My Team would be 39-6 if they played every team every week.
    • Besides My Team, Tropics would have been defeated by five other teams this week.
    • Tropics would be 3-1 if they played the same schedule as My Team.
    • If they played every team every week, Tropics would be 24-21.

    Game Notes

    • My Team had three starters who scored more points than the highest-scoring starter for Tropics.
    • The 110.38 points scored by My Team was the highest in the league this week and the seventh-highest in the league this season.
    • My Team put up their smallest winning point total of the year.
    • My Team was able to win with little help from Cordarrelle Patterson, who had a season-low 0.80 points and is on a four-week underperforming streak.
    • Tropics got a combined 7.70 points from their WRs, their lowest combined scoring output from the WR position this season.
    • With a combined 48.00 points from their WRs, My Team got their highest combined scoring output from the WR position this season.
    • Not going to name names, but some people here aren't pulling their weight. Forget it, Jordan Cameron needs to step it up! He scored 3.30 points against a projected 6.81 in the win, and has now scored below his projection in three straight games.
    • Tropics had their largest margin of defeat 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.
