    Smooth Moves by Dville CUZ

    • Just call him Fred Flintstone, because he was toting the rock all day long. Marshawn Lynch had 28.80 points, the highest RB score of the week and the seventh-highest RB score in the league this season.
    • A person is known by the company he keeps. In this case, Dville CUZ is looking pretty darn good because they had 7 of their 9 starters exceed their projected points.
    • What do Apache helicopters, F-117 Nighthawks and Emmanuel Sanders have in common? They are all dangerous aerial weapons. He ranked sixth in the league in scoring among WRs this week with 20.10 points.
    • Do you put a LB or DB on him? You might have to put both on him if this continues. Jimmy Graham scored 17.80 points to rank second among TEs in the league this week.
    • With 13.00 points scored versus a projected 8.10, Stephen Gostkowski scored more points than projected for five straight games.

    Toyota Roster Tune-up

    • After that performance, we have to wonder if MOP&GROS cares about becoming a Hall Of Famer at all. That's right, you're being judged by an online recap. 
    • All that glitters is not gold. Picked up Cedric Peerman, who scored 4.10 points against his projected 5.48.
    • This is how people lose everything in casinos. MOP&GROS thought their luck would change and went back to the well with Branden Oliver. However, he scored 3.10 points against a projected 13.72 and has now underachieved in three straight games.
    • A heated blanket would be a great gift for Rueben Randle during this cold streak. He scored below his projection in three straight games after scoring 6.90 points against a projected 13.68 this week.
    • The RBs for MOP&GROS got outscored 39.90 - 7.20 by the RBs for Dville CUZ.

    What If

    • If Dville CUZ played MOP&GROS every week, they would be 4-5 this season.
    • Besides MOP&GROS, Dville CUZ would have defeated eight other teams this week.
    • Were they resting their players for this week? Dville CUZ would have defeated MOP&GROS 101.15 - 95.05 had they played each other last week.
    • If they played the same schedule as MOP&GROS, Dville CUZ would be 1-7.
    • If Dville CUZ had played every team in the league each week, they would be 43-56.
    • Besides Dville CUZ, MOP&GROS would have been defeated by nine other teams this week.
    • MOP&GROS would be 5-3 if they played the same schedule as Dville CUZ.
    • MOP&GROS would be 57-42 if they played every team every week.

    Game Notes

    • Four of the six losses for MOP&GROS this season have come when their opponent had their highest-scoring week of the season.
    • The tragedy of being an underachiever is that MOP&GROS knows what they should be, but reality keeps telling them that they're wrong. They scored 86.35 points against a projected 101.19 and underachieved for the fourth time this season, including the last three weeks in a row.
    • In the loss, Carson Palmer ranked 10th in the league in scoring with 28.25 points against a projected 18.14 and has now overachieved in five straight games.
    • Dville CUZ had their highest score of the season with 141.75 points.

    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.
