    Toyota Missed Opportunities

    • Flying Buttresses 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.
    • This is one of those mistakes that you continuously think about for ten years. Did not start Arian Foster, who scored 30.20 points to rank fourth in the league in scoring.

    • Cordarrelle Patterson has now underachieved in four straight games after scoring a matchup-low 1.80 points against a projected 9.59.
    • All that glitters is not gold. Picked up Cairo Santos, who scored 6.00 points against his projected 9.71.

    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.
