Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Tough week, Rabidfins. We can only assume that all your starters were on bye this week.
  • Rabidfins had 7 of their 9 starters score less than their projected points.
  • It was not a good week for Rabidfins at TE, where they were beaten 19.70 - 8.70.
  • 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. Rob Gronkowski scored a season-low 8.70 points, 53.2% of his projected 16.34, which is his lowest percentage of the year.
  • The Miami Dolphins Defense was last on the team in scoring with 2.00 points against a projected 6.83 and underachieved for the fifth time this season.

What If

  • If The C team played Rabidfins every week, they'd be 2-7 this year.
  • Besides Rabidfins, The C team would have defeated four other teams this week.
  • The C team would be 1-7 if they played the same schedule as Rabidfins.
  • The C team would be 27-54 if they played every team every week.
  • Rabidfins would have lost to five other teams besides The C team this week.
  • Timing really is everything. The C team would have lost to Rabidfins 127.14 - 122.50 had they played each other last week.
  • Rabidfins would be 5-3 if they played the same schedule as The C team.
  • If they played every team every week, Rabidfins would be 51-30.

Game Notes

  • Luck has not been with Rabidfins, as four of their five losses have come when their opponent scores higher than their season average.
  • This must be how Jay Leno feels with a garage full of high-performance cars. Rabidfins got a combined 47.80 points from their RBs, their highest combined scoring output from the RB position this season.
  • Rabidfins falls to 1-2 in upset games this season.
  • In the loss, DeAngelo Williams scored 38.50 points, the second-highest RB score in the league this season.
  • The C team outdid their projection in the win, while Rabidfins came in under their point expectation. The C team is now 2-2 when overachieving, while Rabidfins falls to 2-3 when failing to reach their projection.
  • Tell the Denver Broncos Defense to go to a nice restaurant, maybe grab a milk shake, or even take a bubble bath. Because they should forget about this performance. The Denver Broncos Defense was on the winning team, but scored a season-low 7.00 points, only 78.7% of their 8.89-point projection, their lowest percentage of the season.
  • The C team topped their season average of 108.31 points.

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.
