    Smooth Moves by team jdub

    • When is Antonio Brown going to get some respect from the projections? He ranked fifth in the league in scoring with 35.00 points against a projected 22.24 and has now overachieved in four straight games.
    • Julian Edelman laughed in the face of the experts this week, beating his scoring projection by a matchup-leading 77.6% and scoring the ninth-most points in the league with 32.13 points.
    • The Arizona Cardinals Defense exceeded scoring projections by 52.1%, with 16.00 points against a projected 10.52.
    • Apparently playing within themselves was good enough. team jdub won despite having only 4 of their 9 starters exceed their projected points.
    • Even with four players not playing this week, team jdub still got the 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.
    • The Denver Broncos Defense scored the fewest points in the league this week with a season-low -1.00 point.
    • 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. Mike Wallace scored a season-low 9.25 points, 57.3% of his projected 16.14, which is his lowest percentage of the year.
    • 6 of the starters on Rise Up scored less than their projected points.
    • Rise Up saw all three of their WR starters fail to reach their projections.

    What If

    • If team jdub played Rise Up every week, they would be 7-2 this season.
    • Besides Rise Up, team jdub would have beaten only two other teams this week.
    • Had they played each other last week, team jdub would have defeated Rise Up 156.07 - 101.29.
    • If they played the same schedule as Rise Up, team jdub would be 5-3.
    • team jdub would be 47-34 if they played every team every week.
    • Rise Up would have lost to six other teams besides team jdub this week.
    • Rise Up would be 4-4 if they played the same schedule as team jdub.
    • If they played every team every week, Rise Up would be 24-57.

    • team jdub beat Rise Up at the top, with two of their starters outscoring the leading point-getter for Rise Up.
    • Just because Robert Horry has seven NBA championship rings, doesn't mean he's one of the greats. Despite being on the winning team, Julius Thomas scored 12.13 points against a projected 16.66 and has now underachieved in three straight games.
    • Not going to name names, but some people here aren't pulling their weight. Forget it, Frank Gore needs to step it up! He scored 7.03 points against a projected 11.04 in the win, and has now scored below his projection in three straight games.

    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.
