NFL Featured Contest Recap: Week Nine

With half the NFL season over, many teams made changes to make a strong finish. Week nine was all about bouncing back.

Andrew Luck and the Colts got their first win under new offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski and knocked the Broncos down from the ranks of the unbeaten. Mike Mularkey is now the helm for the Titans, and he watched his quarterback Marcus Mariota return from injury to throw four touchdowns to beat the Saints in overtime. Out west in Santa Clara the 49ers started Blaine Gabbert (seriously) and he led them to a tight 17-16 win over Atlanta.

But not every team bounced back. Green Bay fell again to an undefeated team, as the Carolina defense kept Aaron Rodgers in check for most of the night to stay perfect on the season. Dallas looked to make some noise with Dez Bryant a week healthier versus the Eagles, but again the defense couldn’t hold up and they lost in OT.

Across our four featured contests, 33.7% of entries landed in the PayoutZone — 35.1% of entries cashed in the $150K Run & Gun, 31.6% in the $40K Smash Mouth, 34.4% in the $30K Wishbone and 32.4% in the $8K Wildcat.

Check out this weekend’s winners:

$150K Run & Gun

Congrats, Palomito84! Antonio Brown, Ben Roethlisberger and DeAngelo Williams kept this lineup within striking distance, but Alshon Jeffery and his 28.10 fantasy points put it over the top. Imagine what could’ve been if Big Ben was healthy…

…But enough dreaming, more congratulations are in order. Palomito84 also took home first place in the $40K Smash Mouth and the $30K Wishbone.

Happy Dance

$8K Wildcat

Sticking with the bounce back theme, welcome back to the top of the PayoutZone, Mjohnson86! Drafting Matt Cassel at QB and Bryant at wide receiver was really a contrarian pick. The move paid off though, and just like Palomito84’s lineup, Jeffery took this straight to the top.
