Summary: Simms’ Unsullied wins a tight game over TWB Gets Laid on the strength of Victor Cruz’ 29.8.
Game High Points: Victor Cruz 29.8 (Simms’ Unsullied)
Surprise of the Game: This has to go to Victor Cruz, as he was the only player to substantially outplay his expectations.
Most Disappointing Performance: TWB Gets Laid surely expected more than 2.6 points from Stevan Ridley. Simms’ Unsullied was disappointed for his fantasy team when Lamar Miller only scored 1.0 point, but I’m sure he felt better seeing how well the Brown’s run defense played.
Notables: Of a handful of close games this week this one was the closest with a 0.5 point margin of victory. Simms’ Unsullied left Jared Cook on the bench with 24.10 points.

Summary: Now I’m Done rides Peyton Manning to the biggest blowout of the week over 130lbs of Kosar.
Game High Points: Peyton Manning 46.28 (Now I’m Done)
Surprise of the Game: A number of players could qualify here, including Jason Witten for 130lbs of Kosar and Owen Daniels for Now I’m Done. Peyton Manning beating his projection by more than 25 points belongs here as well.
Most Disappointing Performance: CJ Spiller only scored 3.5 points for 130lbs of Kosar.
Notables: Now I’m Done had Brian Hartline on his bench with 17.4 points. Both teams had a backup QB go over 20 points on the bench, but both starters outperformed their respective backups.

Game High Points: Adrian Peterson 29.1 (Optimist Prime)

Most Disappointing Performance: Kosar for President would have liked more than 5.0 points from his kicker Matt Bryant.
Notables: Kosar for President left Julius Thomas’ 23.0 points on the bench, but it would not have changed the outcome.

6 Brownie the Elf (emily522) 73.32 vs 12 Inconcievable (Gabe Durrant) 70.70
Summary: Brownie the Elf overcame David Wilson’s negative points to beat Inconcievable.
Game High Points: Andrew Luck 24.92 (Brownie the Elf)
Surprise of the Game: For lack of a better option Luck is named the surprise of this game.
Most Disappointing Performance: There are plenty of candidates for this dubious honor, but David Wilson certainly "earned" it with -2.1 points.
Notables: Jay Cutler and Brent Celek outscored Cam Newton and Fred Davis from Inconcievable’s bench. Despite Andrew Luck’s game high points, Brownie the Elf would have been better served starting Eli Manning who scored 31.8 points on her bench. Brownie the Elf started Greg Olsen over Jordan Cameron at tight end, giving up 11.2 points in the process.
