    Smooth Moves by Dedication. Heart.

    • Mark Ingram put the team on his back with 23.50 points, the fourth-highest score among 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. Travis Kelce scored 14.70 points to rank fourth among TEs in the league this week.
    • Apparently playing within themselves was good enough. Dedication. Heart. won despite having only 3 of their 9 starters exceed their projected points.
    • Scored as much as they could, with 0 points left on the bench.

    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.
    • Mad World picked up Randy Bullock, who then fell short of his 7.87-point projection by scoring 3.00 points.
    • The 6.30 points scored by Frank Gore fell short of his 10.78-point projection, the third straight game where that has happened.
    • Gotta hit rock button before you can start to rise. It was a season-low 10.68 points for Russell Wilson this week. It was also a season-low for his performance versus projections, reaching only 53.9% of a projected point total of 19.82.
    • 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. Kelvin Benjamin scored a season-low 2.80 points, 24.8% of his projected 11.27, 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.
