    Maybe Americas Team will be able to figure out what the phrase "by the skin of my teeth" means after this narrow victory, edging Luck Dynasty 140.00 to 135.60 to remain undefeated in head-to-head matchups. Luck Dynasty is not a guaranteed win for Americas Team, who has a 5.40-point average margin of victory against them. It's much smaller than their 11.43-point average margin of victory on the season. This week, Ben Roethlisberger was the reason for the win, getting 47.00 points. That's a huge upgrade over Randall Cobb, who led all players with 20.00 points the last time these teams met. Americas Team is averaging 115.90 points against Luck Dynasty and beat them 91.80 to 85.40 in Week 2.

    Smooth Moves by Americas Team

    • Ben Roethlisberger had the second-most points in the league this season with 47.00, leading the league in points for the week.
    • Put WR Terrance Williams on the bench, where he scored 2.00 points, fewer than any WR in the starting lineup.
    • The 19.00 points scored by Percy Harvin was the fifth-highest score by a WR in the league this week.
    • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just Demaryius Thomas posterizing opponents. He had the 10th-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 15.00 points.
    • Le'Veon Bell put the team on his back with 13.00 points, the seventh-highest score among RBs in the league this week.

    Toyota Roster Tune-up

    • Luck Dynasty should get prescription glasses. At least we assume that's why they didn't bother reading the expert articles from the Toyota Hall Of Fame.
    • Graham Gano, who Luck Dynasty picked up this week, scored below his 8.56-point projection with 4.00 points.
    • A heated blanket would be a great gift for Ben Tate during this cold streak. He scored below his projection in three straight games after scoring 5.00 points against a projected 9.87 this week.
    • Kelvin Benjamin scored the fewest points on the team and scored below his projection for the third time this season with 2.00 points against a projected 9.43.
    • Even though Luck Dynasty lost, only 4 of their 9 starters scored less than their projected points.

    What If

    • Americas Team would be 5-4 if they played Luck Dynasty every week.
    • Americas Team would have beaten every other team in the league this week.
    • If they played the same schedule as Luck Dynasty, Americas Team would be 4-3.
    • If Americas Team had played every team in the league each week, they would be 41-22.
    • Luck Dynasty would have lost to just one other team besides Americas Team this week.
    • Timing really is everything. Americas Team would have lost to Luck Dynasty 165.00 - 118.00 had they played each other last week.
    • Luck Dynasty would be 5-2 if they played the same schedule as Americas Team.
    • Luck Dynasty would be 38-25 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.
