    Diet Moxie Lays Waste to ZooYork, Ousts Them from First Place

    Week 9

    • Diet Moxie
    • 3-6
    • Weekly Grade: B-
    • 86
    • ZooYork
    • 7-2
    • Weekly Grade: F
    • 41

    Diet Moxie (seventh place, 3-6, 772 points) pushes ZooYork (7-2, 875 points) closer to the dustbin of history and out of the league's top spot after walloping them 86 to 41. They were led by Marshawn Lynch who got 25 points while Drew Brees scored 19. A win is a win, but this one tastes just a bit sweeter for Diet Moxie who gets revenge for an 83 to 59 comeback by ZooYork in Week 2. Following a 118 to 100 win against The Lungbutters, ZooYork saw their scoring plummet this week. Both teams could have scored more points as Diet Moxie had one starter turn in zero points and ZooYork also had one.

    Smooth Moves by Diet Moxie

    • Marshawn Lynch does not believe in running back by committee. He had the best RB score of the week and the eighth-highest RB score in the league this season with 25 points.
    • A good team always has a good general and Drew Brees proved that this week. He had the fifth-highest QB score in the league this week with 19 points.
    • Jamaal Charles scored 14 points, which ranked eighth out of all the RBs in the league this week.
    • Do you put a LB or DB on him? You might have to put both on him if this continues. Greg Olsen scored 3 points to rank fifth among TEs in the league this week.
    • Starter Mason Crosby put up a zero, but Diet Moxie still won.

    Toyota Roster Tune-up

    • ZooYork may have missed the opportunity for a win, but they gained an opportunity to be mercilessly taunted by Diet Moxie. 
    • Left DeSean Jackson on the bench, where he scored 18 points to beat his scoring projection by 193.2%, the third-highest percentage in the league.
    • ZooYork picked up Chris Ivory, who then fell short of his 6.70-point projection by scoring 2 points.
    • ZooYork had 8 starters fail to reach their projections.
    • The RBs on ZooYork let them down, getting outgunned by the RBs on Diet Moxie 39 - 19.

    What If

    • If Diet Moxie played ZooYork every week, they would be 2-7 this season.
    • Besides ZooYork, Diet Moxie would have defeated three other teams this week.
    • If they played the same schedule as ZooYork, Diet Moxie would be 4-3.
    • If Diet Moxie had played every team in the league each week, they would be 22-40-1.
    • ZooYork would have lost to every other team in the league this week.
    • Timing really is everything. Diet Moxie would have lost to ZooYork 118 - 111 had they played each other last week.
    • If they played the same schedule as Diet Moxie, ZooYork would be 4-3.
    • ZooYork would be 36-25-2 if they played every team every week.

    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.
