MMAmania FFB A League Week 9 Recap

9 weeks down, 4 more to go in the FFB regular season.

Quick update on BJPennfan: He did reach out to me and asked for my address (again) to mail the payment. I asked him to pay the extra $1 and get delivery confirmation / tracking added and to email me the info when its sent. I have yet to hear back from him. I'm really running out of options here, especially with Rodgers going down with the collarbone injury yesterday - it really makes his team a lot less attractive to a potential new owner. I guess I'll give him till Friday to get back to me. Anyone have any thoughts/suggestions here?

Alright, now onto the week 9 results....

Top 5 Fantasy Performers

1. Nick Foles - 59.93 - John G's Bench - Did this scrub really throw 7 TD's?

2. Andre Johnson - 52.90 - Buster Bluth - If he didn't disappear in the 2nd half, he would have been #1.

3. Tom Brady - 41.30 - Buster Bluth - Give Brady a couple of healthy receivers and he can do this

4. Riley Cooper - 38.70 - John G's Bench - Wow, he almost killed all those n******

5. TY Hilton - 37.10 - John G's starting lineup - the new #1 receiver in Indy

Week 9 Matchups

ViolentMike: 154.20

BJPennfan: 62.40

ViolentMike picked up 32.60 points from Jimmy Graham and 26.80 from Keenan Allen to destroy BJPennfan 154.20 - 62.40. ViolentMike is now coming out on top with regularity and is on a four-game win streak. BJPennfan suffered a substantial drop in scoring from last week's 123.93 - 114.80 loss against John G. To make matters worse, BJPennfan got a goose egg from Marques Colston and Aaron Rodgers went down with an injured collar bone. BJPennfan (4-5, 1,070.60 points) drops to ninth place with this GriffinFan-like score while ViolentMike (7-2, 1,336.84 points) remains in FIRST place.

TripPilch: 135.77

Shiv: 109.43

TripPilch (3-6, 1,125.37 points) beat Shiv (3-6, 1,193.30 points) 135.77 - 109.43, led by Giovani Bernard with 26.40 points and Eddie Lacy who had 21.00. Trip scored 10 points over projection and Shiv scored 17 below.

Kevin: 160.00

Griffinfan: 103.70

Mania's Pete Rose picked up 30.00 points from Aaron Dobson and 26.70 from Adrian Peterson to wallop GriffinFan05 160.00 - 103.70. GriffinFan05 is coming apart and is on a four-game losing streak. Rob Gronkowski led GriffinFan05 with 29.30 points while Pierre Thomas racked up 16.00. Mania's Pete Rose (5-4, 1,240.59 points) climbs into second place in the weak as division two and GriffinFan05 (2-7, 998.98 points) stays mired in last place.

donkeypunch: 133.93

Deuce: 117.43

donkeypunch earned their third win in a row when they defeated Deuce02 133.93 - 117.43 in a Monday night comeback. They were led by Matt Forte who had 28.90 points. The streak, which has provided big momentum for donkeypunch, has allowed them to move up from ninth place in Week 7 to sixth place now. To make matters worse, Deuce02 got a goose egg from Nate Washington. Deuce02 falls to fifth place with a 5-4 record.

John G: 161.73

Joben: 135.47

John G logged the highest point total of their season and took down Joben 161.73 - 135.47. While John G (5-4) is only a game back of Joben (6-3), they're quite a bit farther behind in points, 1,338.47 - 1,109.42. Having won their last five straight, John G has become a very tough matchup. I actually thought John G blew his chance at keeping his win streak alive having Foles and Cooper on his bench. Lucky for him tho, TY Hilton and Andrew Luck lit it up in the 2nd half of the Sunday night game.

Puck Head: 179.13

Buster Bluth: 171.30

Puck Head (5-4, 1,255.08 points) logged the highest score for the week to edge Buster Bluth (4-5, 1,248.34 points) 179.13 - 171.30. Puck Head took the early lead, up 70.90 - 19.00 after the first set of Sunday games. The lead flipped by the end of Sunday night and Buster Bluth had a 5.27-point edge. However, Puck Head pulled off the comeback victory on Monday night, with 23.70 points from Brandon Marshall.
