    Week 9

    • TarkentonsTinyTurtle
    • 4-5
    • Weekly Grade: A-
    • 120.26
    • Commane the Commish

    • 60.06

    TarkentonsTinyTurtle got 33.66 points from Andrew Luck and 23.90 from Alfred Morris to destroy Commane the Commish 120.26 to 60.06. Is this fantasy football or mixed martial arts? Because this 60.20-point margin of victory was nothing short of a beatdown and was the fifth-highest recorded in the league this season. Free fallin' like Tom Petty, Commane the Commish suffered a significant drop in scoring from last week's 129.82 to 114.36 loss against StraightCashHomie. TarkentonsTinyTurtle earned a sportsmanship trophy, starting Nick Novak (0 points) to prevent the result from being even worse. Commane the Commish (5-4, 986.80 points) drops to sixth place and TarkentonsTinyTurtle (4-5, 963.70 points) remains in eighth place.

    Smooth Moves by TarkentonsTinyTurtle

    • The 33.66 points scored by Andrew Luck ranked fourth in the league in scoring. It is the highest output of any player on TarkentonsTinyTurtle this season.
    • There are rumors that the military wants to model a new all-terrain vehicle based off of Alfred Morris. He had the fourth-highest score among RBs in the league this week with 23.90 points.
    • Denard Robinson put the team on his back with 17.40 points, the eighth-highest score among RBs in the league this week.
    • TarkentonsTinyTurtle won even with Nick Novak in the starting lineup, who didn't score any points.
    • Did you use any black magic this week? TarkentonsTinyTurtle was still able to pull out a win with only 4 of their 9 starters exceeding their projected points.

    Toyota Roster Tune-up

    • Yes, your team could have been better. But if you haven't gotten behind the wheel of the bold new Camry yet, that's your real missed opportunity.
    • All nine players in the starting lineup scored less than their projected points.
    • Left Shane Vereen on the bench, where he led the team in scoring with 15.20 points, beating his scoring projection by 17.9%, which also led the team.
    • Branden Oliver has now failed to reach his projection for three straight games. This week he scored 3.10 points versus a projected 14.18.
    • This is how people lose everything in casinos. Commane the Commish thought their luck would change and went back to the well with Steve Smith Sr. However, he scored 6.10 points against a projected 11.11 and has now underachieved in three straight games.

    • Timing really is everything. TarkentonsTinyTurtle would have lost to Commane the Commish 114.36 - 97.50 had they played each other last week.
    • Commane the Commish would be 5-3 if they played the same schedule as TarkentonsTinyTurtle.
    • If they played every team every week, Commane the Commish would be 54-45.

    Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 9

    Nick Foles PHI - QB 2013 vs. Oakland 22–for-28 passing, 406 yards, 7 TD passes, 0 INTs Not to be outdone by Peyton Manning in Week 1 of last season, Foles matched the Bronco signal-caller's NFL record-tying seven TD pass performance in a 49-20 Week 9 rout of the Oakland Raiders.

    The seven TD tosses also contributed to a run of 19 straight touchdown passes by Foles without an interception. Ultimately, he would throw his first pick of the season in the midst of driving snow against Detroit in Week 14, leaving him one scoring throw shy of Peyton Manning's NFL-record of 20.
    Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
