  • Ashley's Team would have been undefeated if they played every team in the league this week.
  • Were they resting their players for this week? Ashley's Team would have defeated T's Tip-Top Team 75.52 - 55.30 had they played each other last week.
  • Ashley's Team would be 1-3 if they played the same schedule as T's Tip-Top Team.
  • If Ashley's Team had played every team in the league each week, they would be 23-22.

  • Speed, strength, agility, vision, and intelligence. It was all on display this week when the RBs on Ashley's Team collectively had their best week of the season with 32.10 points.
  • Just because Robert Horry has seven NBA championship rings, doesn't mean he's one of the greats. Despite being on the winning team, Marques Colston scored 6.30 points against a projected 8.00 and has now underachieved in four straight games.
  • They may need to check dentals records to identidy this victim. T's Tip-Top Team had their worst loss of the season, losing by 38.68 points.

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.
