    The Wiggy's picked up the third-highest player score of the week from Demaryius Thomas (34.60) to beat OFAS 111.72 to 90.93. OFAS is coming apart and is on a four-game losing streak. OFAS put in a solid effort with a huge improvement in scoring compared to last week's 75.32 to 51.05 loss against RWHS 18. The Wiggy's (3-2, 504.54 points) climbs into third place and OFAS (1-4, 462.05 points) crawls into 11th place.

    Smooth Moves by The Wiggy's

    • One of these days the pundits will give Philip Rivers his due props. With 27.82 points against a projected 21.47, he ranked fifth in the league in scoring and has now overachieved in four straight games.
    • The 34.60 points scored by Demaryius Thomas ranked third in the league in scoring. It is the highest output of any player on The Wiggy's this season.
    • Took Niles Paul out of the starting lineup, who scored 0.60 points on the bench, fewer than the starting TE.
    • The San Diego Chargers Defense exceeded scoring projections by 48.3%, with 16.60 points against a projected 11.19.
    • The Wiggy's won despite having only 3 of their 9 starters exceed their scoring projection.

    Toyota Missed Opportunities

    • Remember that thing OFAS did instead of reading the expert articles from the Hall Of Fame? Shouldn't have done that. 
    • Should have started Alex Smith, who underachieved, but still had more points than the starting QB with 17.60 against a projected 19.66.
    • Markus Wheaton, who OFAS picked up this week, scored below his 7.55-point projection with 1.70 points.
    • A heated blanket would be a great gift for LeSean McCoy during this cold streak. He scored below his projection in three straight games after scoring 6.60 points against a projected 18.34 this week.
    • The WRs on OFAS let them down, resulting in a 44.40 - 19.60 difference at the position.

    What If

    • The Wiggy's would be 3-2 if they played OFAS every week.
    • Besides OFAS, The Wiggy's would have defeated eight other teams this week.
    • Had they played each other last week, The Wiggy's would have defeated OFAS 156.06 - 51.05.
    • If they played the same schedule as OFAS, The Wiggy's would be 1-3.
    • The Wiggy's would be 31-24 if they played every team every week.
    • OFAS would have lost to six other teams besides The Wiggy's this week.
    • If they played the same schedule as The Wiggy's, OFAS would be 3-1.
    • OFAS would be 29-26 if they played every team every week.

    Game Notes

    • Looks like teams bring their A game when they see them on the schedule. Of the losses OFAS has had, three were against opponents who topped their season scoring average that week.
    • "They ain't nothing but paper champions. That's all they are, and that's all they're ever going to be." Did Lee Flowers say that or everybody in this league? OFAS scored 90.93 points against a projected 107.06 and has underachieved every week this season.
    • OFAS has the longest current losing streak in the league, having lost four straight games.
    • Montee Ball had a season-low 1.80 points against a projected 10.78 in the win and has now scored below his projection in three straight games.
    • The Wiggy's beat OFAS at the top, with two of their starters outscoring the leading point-getter for OFAS.
    • Jordan Cameron did little to help The Wiggy's, underperforming versus projections for the third straight game with 3.30 points against a projected 6.81.
    • With 44.40 points, The Wiggy's got the highest combined scoring output from the WR position for any team this week.
    • In the loss, Greg Olsen scored 19.20 points, the sixth-highest TE score in the league 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.
