    Smooth Moves by Rick's Rad Team

    • The 20.90 points scored by Julian Edelman was the third-highest score by a WR in the league this week.
    • With 15.00 points versus a projected 9.29, Stephen Gostkowski exceeded his scoring projection by 61.4%.
    • Apparently playing within themselves was good enough. Rick's Rad Team won despite having only 3 of their 9 starters exceed their projected points.
    • Even with both of their RBs falling short of their projected scores, Rick's Rad Team still won.

    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.
    • Left the Pittsburgh Steelers Defense on the bench, where they scored 8.00 points and surpassed their scoring projection by 79.3%, the highest percentage of any player on the team.
    • Mothballs Smell had 7 of their 9 starters score less than their projected points.
    • Hate to point fingers for why a team loses, but RIGHT HERE. Kelvin Benjamin had a season-low 1.80 points against a projected 9.21 and scored below his projection for the fourth time this season.
    • It's times like these when it's important to support your players when they're down. So move the mouse pointer away from the DROP button. DeMarco Murray scored a season-low 9.00 points, 62.9% of his projected 14.30, which is his lowest percentage of the year.

    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.
