    • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just Odell Beckham Jr. posterizing opponents. He had the seventh-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 15.60 points.

    Toyota Roster Tune-up

    • Sarah's WINNERS 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.
    • Steve Smith Sr has now failed to reach his projection for three straight games. This week he scored 3.60 points versus a projected 8.60.
    • Ben Tate had a season-low 3.20 points against a projected 14.63 and has now underachieved in three straight games.
    • 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. Zach Ertz scored a season-low 0.40 points, 6.2% of his projected 6.46, which is his lowest percentage of the year.
    • Sarah's WINNERS had 5 of their 9 starters score less than their projected points.

    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.
