    Smooth Moves by The White Mamba

    • The 19.00 points scored by Adam Vinatieri was the highest K score of the week and is the second-highest K score in the league this season.
    • What do Apache helicopters, F-117 Nighthawks and Antonio Brown have in common? They are all dangerous aerial weapons. He ranked fourth in the league in scoring among WRs this week with 20.40 points.
    • With 14.80 points, Jamaal Charles ranked ninth in scoring among all RBs in the league this week.
    • Even with a zero from starter Joique Bell, The White Mamba was still able to win.
    • Did you use any black magic this week? The White Mamba was still able to pull out a win with only 3 of their 9 starters exceeding their projected points.

    Toyota Roster Tune-up

    • Shady Business probably blew their shot at becoming a Toyota Hall Of Famer with that loss, but there's a bright side. Let us know when you find it.
    • Picked up Carson Palmer, who led the matchup in scoring with 20.76 points, but left him on the bench.
    • Shady Business had 7 starters fail to reach their projections.
    • This is how people lose everything in casinos. Shady Business thought their luck would change and went back to the well with Steve Smith Sr. However, he scored 3.60 points against a projected 8.60 and has now underachieved in three straight games.
    • With 13.34 points against a projected 18.04, Cam Newton did not meet his projection for the third straight game.

    What If

    • The White Mamba would be 5-4 if they played Shady Business every week.
    • The White Mamba would have beaten only one other team besides Shady Business this week.
    • Had they played each other last week, The White Mamba would have defeated Shady Business 118.94 - 85.54.
    • If they played the same schedule as Shady Business, The White Mamba would be 4-4.
    • If The White Mamba had played every team in the league each week, they would be 42-39.
    • Besides The White Mamba, Shady Business would have been defeated by seven other teams this week.
    • If they played the same schedule as The White Mamba, Shady Business would be 4-4.
    • If they played every team every week, Shady Business would be 34-47.

    Game Notes

    • The loss is the third straight for Shady Business and extends the longest current losing streak in the league.
    • The tragedy of being an underachiever is that Shady Business knows what they should be, but reality keeps telling them that they're wrong. They scored 83.94 points against a projected 91.41 and underachieved for the sixth time this season, including the last three weeks in a row.
    • The White Mamba had their lowest winning score of the season with 89.56 points.
    • At 5.62 points, the margin of victory was the tightest of the week.
    • The White Mamba got their lowest combined scoring output from the RB position this season with only 14.80 points this week.
    • Just because Robert Horry has seven NBA championship rings, doesn't mean he's one of the greats. Despite being on the winning team, Malcom Floyd scored 6.00 points against a projected 7.81 and has now underachieved in three straight games.
    • Shady Business remains winless in comeback games this season, falling to 0-2.
    • With the win, The White Mamba remains undefeated in comeback games this season, improving to 3-0.

    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.
