Has the Velorooms team ever been top scorer on any week in the past?

We came 2nd in August 2017...
Update #33: LosBrolin Keeps Rollin'

The Vuelta is into its second week, and with some results in France (Poitou Charentes & GP Bretagne) and Belgium (a bunch of little Omloops and GPs and "Flandrien Town Name-Flandrien Town Name" 1.1 races), there was a fair amount to draw from.

This Week's Top Scorers

Rank   Team   Points this week
1   LosBrolin   783
2   VeloRooms   757

... any top team this week has to have Viviani, who's in the form of his life and just killing it out there. LosBrolin also gets help from unique pick Bouhanni, who doesn't necessarily give an overwhelming return overall, but is good to have for weekly wins as he contributes in clumps (104 this week). Throw in Mads Pedersen's fine performance (136 points, 14 teams) this week, and you've got a winning combo. VeloRooms collective team comes oh-so-close, 26 points out of the top spot. They also had Viviani and Pedersen, but got their other big contribution from Vanmarcke (96 points).

And then, in the very last race that year, there was only one selected rider who scored, and it was a Velorooms unique pick
Update #44: The End

The final .1 or above race of the season, Tour of Fuzhou, took place last week, and nary a pro conti team was to be seen. There wasn't much expectation for riders in this game to score, but with 130 teams it's always possible that someone picked an obscure rider that ended up racing this late in the season in Asia. Let's see, shall we?

This Week's Top Scorers

That's right! One team scored this week, and everyone else tied for second. Unique pick Dadi Suryadi nearly doubled his points on the season (he has 23 total) to propel VeloRooms to the final spot of glory for the year. Their team did need over 150 points to move from 103rd to 102nd though, so there was no movement in the charts and thus no High Movers for the week.
