Back-and-forth battle ends with Minor Prophets coming back to defeat Unstoppable in 112.78-70.70 rout
Well, that was thrilling! After a back-and-forth matchup featuring three lead changes, Minor Prophets earned an easy win over Unstoppable, rolling to a 112.78-70.70 victory. Unstoppable pulled out to a 13.9-point lead early Sunday behind Adrian Peterson (13 points) and DeAndre Hopkins (11.4). Minor Prophets came back to take the lead during the late games on Sunday, powered by DK Metcalf (21 points) and Hunter Henry (8.4). Not to be deterred, Unstoppable got it going later that night to take an 8.3-point lead behind Tom Brady (14.4 points) and James White (14.4). But Minor Prophets came back again at the last minute on Monday night, as Dak Prescott (22.48 points) and Amari Cooper (14) put them back on top for good. Minor Prophets improve to 4-5 on the season, while Unstoppable fall to 2-7.

Metcalf overachieved for the fifth time this season, scoring 21 points against his 8.61-point projection. During a 40-34 win over the Buccaneers, he caught 6 passes for 123 yards and a touchdown. Metcalf ranks #59 among all fantasy players this season and will face the 49ers next week.
Identifying mismatches is a huge key to success in football. We really took that to heart this week by tripling Unstoppable at the wide receiver position (39 points to 13).
Well, we can't really complain about a shortage of opportunities this time, can we? As a group, our four pass-catchers (three WR and one TE) were targeted a whopping 21 times in Week 9. With only 13 total receptions, that group may have some chemistry issues.
