Smooth Moves by Big Ballers

  • Picked up Ben Roethlisberger, who tallied 35.70 points, the highest of any player on Big Ballers this season.
  • Best in the world, Rob Gronkowski can claim that at least for one week after his 16.50 point performance. It was highest score for any TE this week, as well as the 10th-highest TE score in the league this season.
  • Kickers are important too and Adam Vinatieri proved that this week. His 19.00 points was the highest total among kickers for the week and the third-highest K score in the league this season.
  • Big Ballers had most of their starters beat their scoring projection (5 out of 9).
  • By scoring 12.30 points, Torrey Smith beat his 7.79 projected points by 57.9%.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Steve's Shit Squad may have missed the opportunity for a win, but they gained an opportunity to be mercilessly taunted by Big Ballers. 
  • Should have started Robert Griffin III, who underachieved, but still had more points than the starting QB with 15.44 against a projected 16.22.
  • Ben Tate has now failed to reach his projection for three straight games. This week he scored 3.20 points versus a projected 14.63.
  • Steve's Shit Squad needed more points from the QB position, where Big Ballers beat them 35.70 - 0.82.
  • Steve's Shit Squad was faced with 2 starters coming up empty in 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.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
