This week I scored 173 points (second highest for the week), notching a much needed two game winning streak. Overall my team performed well this week, highlighted by a monster game from Melvin Gordon. I also benched Derek Carr in an unfavorable matchup against Denver for Dak Prescott which worked out well.
Again, two of the three teams ahead of me won which has shifted the top three spots — but has not affected me as of yet. It is important to note that I play the third place team in Week 10 which is a must win if I want to solidify my playoff spot (only four teams make it in this league). I remain in fourth place with a 6-3 record.
At 94 points — I was the lowest scoring winner this week. My team was stunted with bye weeks (James White, Jeremy Hill, Kirk Cousins) and injuries (Spencer Ware). Most disappointing was an Oakland blowout win over Denver which was achieved through the running game. Not only did this limit the points by Derek Carr, but the Denver defense had a low scoring week. I was lucky to sneak by with a win this week since the team I played had a mediocre performance.
As ugly as it was, a win is a win, and I have an 8-1 record and maintain sole ownership of first place.
