Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • If only we provided some kind of tool, like weekly articles, that would help Blackmarsh secure a victory. Oh, WAIT, we do.
  • Did not start LeGarrette Blount, who scored 18 points and beat his projected point total by a team-leading 59.6%.
  • 7 of the 9 starters scored less than their projected points.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 9

Adrian Peterson Min - RB 2007 vs. San Diego 296 rushing yards, 19 receiving yards, 3 TDs In a career filled with highlight reel runs and standout performances, AP’s finest moment came just nine weeks into his rookie campaign.

In fact, the 296 rushing yards he pinned on the Chargers defense in Week 9 of ’07 still holds as the best single-game rushing performance in NFL history, besting a 295-yard outburst by Jamal Lewis in ’03. While AP is the titleholder of the best rushing day, it is his only appearance on the list of the top 30 single-game rushing efforts since 1970.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
