Robert's Team, with "Eye of the Tiger" playing in the background, recorded the highest score this week and snuck past Mark's T 112.64 to 110.98, overcoming a 31.67-point spread. Robert's Team (5-4) sits just two games back of Mark's T (7-2), but point totals show they should be happy with that because they are a lot further behind there, 939.50 to 687.20. It was a matchup that could have gone either way, and the 1.66-point margin of victory was the fourth-smallest recorded in the league this season. Robert's Team earned a sportsmanship trophy, starting Steven Hauschka (0 points) to prevent the result from being even worse.

Smooth Moves by Robert's Team

  • Best in the world: Delanie Walker can claim that at least for one week after his 23.50 point performance. It was highest score for any TE this week, as well as the third-highest TE score in the league this season.
  • With 12.00 points, the Philadephia Eagles Defense was the highest-scoring DEF of the week.
  • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just Dez Bryant posterizing opponents. He had the fourth-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 16.40 points.
  • There are rumors that the military wants to model a new all-terrain vehicle based off of Frank Gore. He had the ninth-highest score among RBs in the league this week with 16.20 points.
  • This is the bar, and this is the team jumping over it. Robert's Team had 5 of their 9 starters exceed their projected points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Remember that time you thought, "I don't need help from your stinking articles. I can beat Robert's Team on my own." How'd it work out for you?
  • Did not start DeMarco Murray, who scored 22.10 points and beat his projected point total by a team-leading 76.2%.
  • A heated blanket would be a great gift for Devonta Freeman during this cold streak. He scored below his projection in three straight games after scoring 13.90 points against a projected 20.75 this week.
  • Mark's T was dominated at the TE position, scoring 3.50 points versus the 23.50 for Robert's Team.
  • At the DEF position, Mark's T got outscored by Robert's Team 12.00 - 3.00.

What If

  • Robert's Team would be 1-8 if they played Mark's T every week.
  • Robert's Team would've been undefeated if they played every team in the league this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Mark's T, Robert's Team would be 2-6.
  • If Robert's Team had played every team in the league each week, they would be 30-51.
  • Mark's T would have beaten every other team in the league besides Robert's Team this week.
  • Timing really is everything. Robert's Team would have lost to Mark's T 127.92 - 84.10 had they played each other last week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Robert's Team, Mark's T would be 8-0.
  • Mark's T would be 69-12 if they played every team every week.

Game Notes

  • Clash of the Titans! These two squads were the highest-scoring teams in the league this week.

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.
