    Official Week 9 Thread

    The Nick Mullens era has begun!

    George Kittle is on pace for over 1,200 yards.

    Jordy Nelson is back to shlubbyness with all of 36 yards receiving in the last 3 games.

    Thursday observations:
    - If I were Derek Carr, I might cry if I had to play behind that offensive line.
    - Oakland's defense...wow. Just wow. Can't pass rush, can't tackle, can't cover. Oh, and they're slow, too.
    - Nick Mullens has to be very happy that his first game was against a team this bad.

    If Kittle doesn't drop an 80 yard TD pass in week 1, he would have had a 100 yard game plus a TD with 3 different quarterbacks this season. Have to laugh at people who dropped Kittle after Garoppolo got hurt.

    Cards release Sam Bradford, who took them to the cleaners for $13.5m over 3 horrific games

    Raiders continue the housecleaning, releasing Bruce Irvin

    Vikings and Bears D’s rack up yuuuuge points this week. The Detroit O-line was a train wreck.

    Patrick Mahomes is on pace for 5000 yards passing and 50 TDs in his first full season in the NFL. And just about everyone drafted him late to be their backup QB.

    besides having obvious matchups vs teams like the Bills or Cardinals, you really have to hand pick a defense each week. last week i had the Ravens vs the Panthers and i lost by 4 points. and the Ravens had -4. and i think they are the best defense in the conference. so i learned my lesson.

    also, i don't think the fantasy experts consider schedule a lot. for example, the Falcons coming off a bye week playing the Redskins. that was a nice surprise from Ryan, Coleman and Ridley. i have a lot of Falcons and Eagles. so you would think i should play them next week in Cle as opposed to Wentz vs DAL, but PHI will be coming off a bye and DAL off a short week and ATL 2nd consecutive week on the road. if i were a betting man i'd say CLE and PHI both cover.

    I'll go so far as to say if you have Mahomes on your team, you're making your league's playoffs. In my four leagues, the teams that own Mahomes have a combined 28-8 record so far.

    Super excited to try to break a 3 game losing streak against a team that has both Mahomes and Hunt next week. Maybe I'll get lucky and Mahomes will only throw to Tyreek, who I have.
