Smooth Moves by Brees Nutz

  • Tyler Eifert had 23.30 points, the second-highest TE score of the week and the sixth-highest TE score in the league this season.
  • Put WR Donte Moncrief on the bench, where he scored 3.00 points, fewer than any WR in the starting lineup.
  • Brees Nutz is either a fortune teller or really knows their stuff. Shane Vereen, who was picked up by Brees Nutz, scored 10.30 points against a projected 6.49, topping his projection by 58.7%.
  • What do Apache helicopters, F-117 Nighthawks and Alshon Jeffery have in common? They are all dangerous aerial weapons. He ranked sixth in the league in scoring among WRs this week with 16.10 points.
  • The 13.90 points by Eric Decker topped a projected 9.01, extending his overachievement streak to seven weeks.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • You gave it the old college try. Unfortunately for you, this isn't college ball. This is professional football at the national level; you know the acronym.
  • Eddie Lacy scored the fewest points in the league this week with a season-low -1.50 points.
  • Geno's Jaw could have used more points from the TE position, where Brees Nutz beat them 23.30 - 4.30.
  • Geno's Jaw was not able to win even though only 4 of their 9 starters fell short of their projected point total.
  • Left Nate Washington in the starting lineup and he scored 0 points.

What If

  • Brees Nutz would be 6-3 if they played Geno's Jaw every week.
  • Besides Geno's Jaw, Brees Nutz would have defeated four other teams this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Geno's Jaw, Brees Nutz would be 6-2.
  • If Brees Nutz had played every team in the league each week, they would be 49-32.
  • Besides Brees Nutz, Geno's Jaw would have been defeated by six other teams this week.
  • And they say procrastination doesn't pay off! Had they played each other last week, Brees Nutz would have lost to Geno's Jaw 105.60 - 95.54.
  • If they played the same schedule as Brees Nutz, Geno's Jaw would be 4-4.
  • If they played every team every week, Geno's Jaw would be 23-58.

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.
