    Smooth Moves by Cory's Team

    • Added Andre Williams, who beat his scoring projection by a team-leading 111.0%.
    • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just Dez Bryant posterizing opponents. He had the sixth-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 14.50 points.
    • The 15.64 points scored by Matt Ryan led the team, the fourth time that's happened this season.
    • The 11.00 points scored by the Detroit Lions Defense outpaced their 6.95-point scoring projection by 58.3%.
    • Apparently playing within themselves was good enough. Cory's Team won despite having only 4 of their 9 starters exceed their projected points.

    Toyota Missed Opportunities

    • Discount-Rate Puss should get prescription glasses. At least we assume that's why they didn't bother reading the expert articles from the Toyota Hall Of Fame.
    • Left Golden Tate on the bench, where he scored 19.40 points and beat his projected point total by 181.7%, the sixth-highest percentage in the league this week.
    • With 1.80 points against a projected 10.78, Montee Ball was last on the team in scoring and has now scored below his projection in three straight games.
    • Discount-Rate Puss had 8 of their 9 starters score less than their projected points.
    • A heated blanket would be a great gift for the Seattle Seahawks Defense during this cold streak. They scored below their projection in four straight games after scoring 2.00 points against a projected 10.32 this week.

    What If

    • If Cory's Team played Discount-Rate Puss every week, they would be 4-1 this season.
    • Cory's Team would have beaten three other teams besides Discount-Rate Puss this week.
    • Were they resting their players for this week? Cory's Team would have defeated Discount-Rate Puss 93.42 - 61.44 had they played each other last week.
    • If they played the same schedule as Discount-Rate Puss, Cory's Team would be 0-4.
    • If Cory's Team had played every team in the league each week, they would be 22-23.

    • Just because Robert Horry has seven NBA championship rings, doesn't mean he's one of the greats. Despite being on the winning team, Brandin Cooks scored 7.10 points against a projected 8.92 and has now underachieved in four straight games.
    • Cory's Team has now won three straight games.
    • In games that are blowouts, Cory's Team is now 3-1, including wins in their last three such matchups.

    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.
