Kate's Team did just enough to win, putting up 68.8% of their 63.52 season average.

    Smooth Moves by Kate's Team

    • With 17.00 points, the Houston Texans Defense was the highest-scoring DEF of the week.
    • Kate's Team was still able to pull out a win with only 2 of their 9 starters exceeding their projected points.
    • Even with four starters scoring zero points, Kate's Team was still able to win.

    Toyota Roster Tune-up

    • Not reading the expert articles from the Hall Of Fame. And if they did, maybe they should pay better attention when they read.
    • Should have started Drew Brees, who underachieved, but still had more points than the starting QB with 19.08 against a projected 19.76.
    • The Denver Broncos Defense scored the fewest points in the league this week with a season-low -1.00 point.
    • The 5.80 points scored by Frank Gore fell short of his 10.57-point projection, the fourth straight game where that has happened.
    • 5 of the 9 starters scored zero points for Pistol Offense.

    What If

    • Kate's Team would be 3-6 if they played Pistol Offense every week.
    • Kate's Team would not have beaten any other team in the league besides Pistol Offense this week.
    • If they played the same schedule as Pistol Offense, Kate's Team would be 4-4.
    • Kate's Team would be 20-61 if they played every team every week.
    • Pistol Offense would have been beaten by every other team in the league this week.
    • Timing really is everything. Kate's Team would have lost to Pistol Offense 35.00 - 24.76 had they played each other last week.
    • Pistol Offense would be 2-6 if they played the same schedule as Kate's Team.
    • Pistol Offense would be 36-45 if they played every team every week.

    • The 43.70 points scored by Kate's Team is the lowest winning score in the league this season.
    • The tragedy of being an underachiever is that Pistol Offense knows what they should be, but reality keeps telling them that they're wrong. They scored 36.58 points against a projected 53.92 and underachieved for the sixth time this season, including the last three weeks in a row.
    • It was the second time this season that Pistol Offense has had the lowest score in the league.

    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.
