    Smooth Moves by DaPlayas

    • Matt Forte didn't have the best score of the week, but there ain't no shame in his game. He had 28.60 points, the third-highest RB score of the week and the eighth-highest RB score in the league this season.
    • There are rumors that the military wants to model a new all-terrain vehicle based off of DeMarco Murray. He had the sixth-highest score among RBs in the league this week with 21.20 points.
    • Jeremy Maclin overachieved by 26.3%, scoring 16.10 points against a projected 12.75.
    • Did you use any black magic this week? DaPlayas was still able to pull out a win with only 3 of their 9 starters exceeding their projected points.
    • DaPlayas saw both of their starting RBs top their projections.

    Toyota Missed Opportunities

    • Yule Log should have scored more than 127.70 in order to win. That's Hall Of Fame level insight. 
    • Did not start DeSean Jackson, who scored 30.20 points and beat his projected point total by 208.5%, which was the highest percentage in the league.
    • Whoever gave you this advice, you might want to lose their number. Picked up and started Andrew Hawkins, who then scored below his 9.31-point projection with 4.20 points.
    • Yule Log had 7 starters fail to reach their projections.
    • Bishop Sankey was last in the matchup in scoring with 2.70 points against a projected 8.51 and underachieved for the third time this season.

    What If

    • If DaPlayas played Yule Log every week, they would be 4-1 this season.
    • DaPlayas would have beaten six other teams besides Yule Log this week.
    • Were they resting their players for this week? DaPlayas would have defeated Yule Log 144.65 - 102.65 had they played each other last week.
    • If they played the same schedule as Yule Log, DaPlayas would be 3-1.
    • If DaPlayas had played every team in the league each week, they would be 41-14.
    • Yule Log would have lost to six other teams besides DaPlayas this week.
    • If they played the same schedule as DaPlayas, Yule Log would be 2-2.
    • If they played every team every week, Yule Log would be 26-29.

    Game Notes

    • DaPlayas had the week's largest margin of victory (28.45 points) for the first time this season.
    • DaPlayas is on the longest active win streak in the league, winning three straight games.
    • DaPlayas put up their smallest winning point total of the year.
    • Yule Log had 99.25 points, their season-low.
    • The Seattle Seahawks Defense did little to help DaPlayas, underperforming versus projections for the fourth straight game with 12.35 points against a projected 20.11.
    • Not going to name names, but some people here aren't pulling their weight. Forget it, Greg Jennings needs to step it up! He scored 4.10 points against a projected 8.60 in the win, and has now scored below his projection in four straight games.
    • Just because Robert Horry has seven NBA championship rings, doesn't mean he's one of the greats. Despite being on the winning team, Jordan Cameron scored 4.80 points against a projected 8.82 and has now underachieved in three straight games.
    • Yule Log got beat so bad, their own mother doesn't recognize them. It was the worst loss of the season for them, with the margin of victory coming in at 28.45 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.
