    • 6-3
    • Weekly Grade: C
    • 140.65
    • BleedsBroncoBlue
    • 7-2
    • Weekly Grade: B+
    • 137.87

    Cam (6-3, 1,346.32 points) edged BleedsBroncoBlue (7-2, 1,328.09 points) 140.65 to 137.87 with Tom Brady picking up the third-highest point total in the league this week. Cam must believe that the early bird gets the worm. They scored first and went into Sunday in front 23.38 to 0. That lead faded away by the end of the early Sunday games and they trailed 71.86 to 54.97. However, following the late Sunday games, Cam regained the lead for good. Then, they spent the rest of the matchup making fun of BleedsBroncoBlue to the other league members.

    Smooth Moves by Cam

    • One of these days the pundits will give Tom Brady his due props. With 39.05 points against a projected 28.86, he ranked third in the league in scoring and has now overachieved in five straight games.
    • Sat TE Dwayne Allen on the bench, where he had the lowest TE score on the team with 16.00 points.
    • Took Russell Wilson out of the starting lineup, who scored 12.05 points on the bench, fewer than the starting QB.
    • With 28.88 points, Emmanuel Sanders ranked fifth in the league in scoring among WRs this week.
    • Do you put a LB or DB on him? You might have to put both on him if this continues. Jimmy Graham scored 23.38 points to rank second among TEs in the league this week.

    Toyota Roster Tune-up

    • Remember that thing BleedsBroncoBlue did instead of reading the expert articles from the Hall Of Fame? Shouldn't have done that. 
    • A heated blanket would be a great gift for Chandler Catanzaro during this cold streak. He scored below his projection in three straight games after scoring 4.00 points against a projected 7.85 this week.
    • Chris Ivory scored the fewest points on the team and scored below his projection for the third time this season with 2.20 points against a projected 9.20.
    • BleedsBroncoBlue was not able to win even though only 4 of their 9 starters fell short of their projected point total.

    What If

    • If Cam played BleedsBroncoBlue every week, they would be 6-3 this season.
    • Cam would have beaten four other teams besides BleedsBroncoBlue this week.
    • Cam would be 5-3 if they played the same schedule as BleedsBroncoBlue.
    • Cam would be 55-26 if they played every team every week.
    • Besides Cam, BleedsBroncoBlue would have been defeated by four other teams this week.
    • And they say procrastination doesn't pay off! Had they played each other last week, Cam would have lost to BleedsBroncoBlue 157.50 - 146.21.
    • BleedsBroncoBlue would be 7-1 if they played the same schedule as Cam.
    • BleedsBroncoBlue would be 53-28 if they played every team every week.

    Game Notes

    • The 2.78-point margin of victory was the smallest in the league this week.
    • BleedsBroncoBlue saw their seven-game win streak come to an end.
    • Just because Robert Horry has seven NBA championship rings, doesn't mean he's one of the greats. Despite being on the winning team, Branden Oliver scored 3.78 points against a projected 15.90 and has now underachieved in three straight games.
    • Although Cam won, it was no thanks to Ben Tate, who scored 7.93 points and has now scored below his projection in three straight weeks.
    • BleedsBroncoBlue falls to 2-1 in close games this season.
    • Cam underachieved in the win, recording 88.3% of their projected 159.32, while BleedsBroncoBlue performed better than expected, beating their 126.43-point projection by 9.0%.
    • With the win, Cam improves to 1-1 in close games this season.
    • Cam is leveraging their draft well. This week they got 95.9% of their points from players they drafted.

    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.
