Smooth Moves by Freight Train

  • Drew Brees put up 31.88 points, which was the ninth-highest score in the league this week.
  • Mark Ingram put the team on his back with 26.50 points, the third-highest score among RBs in the league this week.
  • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just Emmanuel Sanders posterizing opponents. He had the sixth-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 20.10 points.
  • Did you use any black magic this week? Freight Train was still able to pull out a win with only 5 of their 10 starters exceeding their projected points.
  • Jason Witten exceeded scoring projections by 23.2%, with 9.20 points against a projected 7.47.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Scum & Villainy 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.
  • This is how people lose everything in casinos. Scum & Villainy thought their luck would change and went back to the well with Rueben Randle. However, he scored 6.90 points against a projected 13.68 and has now underachieved in three straight games.
  • A heated blanket would be a great gift for Frank Gore during this cold streak. He scored below his projection in three straight games after scoring 7.70 points against a projected 12.65 this week.
  • Zach Ertz had two season-lows this week. He scored a season-low 0.90 points and recorded only 11.3% of his 7.94-point projection.
  • Only 4 of the 10 starters on Scum & Villainy underachieved this week, but they still lost.

What If

  • Freight Train would be 6-3 if they played Scum & Villainy every week.
  • Freight Train would have beaten every other team in the league this week.
  • Were they resting their players for this week? Freight Train would have defeated Scum & Villainy 204.24 - 129.66 had they played each other last week.
  • Freight Train would be 7-1 if they played the same schedule as Scum & Villainy.
  • Freight Train would be 56-25 if they played every team every week.
  • Scum & Villainy would not have lost to any other team in the league besides Freight Train this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Freight Train, Scum & Villainy would be 5-3.

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.
