Everyone deserves a mulligan. Week Nine was mine. Considering some of the risks we took, we deserved such terrible results. But hey, I guess I got greedy.
Well as we turn to November, it is time to turn from pumpkin to greatness. So before we look ahead at what's in store for Week Ten, take a look at the ghoulish Week Nine disaster.

Tommy Streeter, Miami vs. Duke
Streeter is coming off a huge, two-touchdown game against Virginia and as he continues to develop, he will make for a solid WR3 in all formats. Against Duke, he is likely to find the end zone at least once.
Marqise Lee, USC vs. Colorado
The Trojans will be inspired to romp the Buffaloes after their heartbreaking loss to Stanford. That will lead to huge days for Robert Woods and Lee, who should easily find room to score and have a huge day.
Tavarres King, Georgia vs. New Mexico State
If Malcolm Mitchell remains out with an injury, King will have an easy time picking apart the NMSU secondary en route to a huge day. They cannot match his physical play and he should get into the act in what should be a blowout.
Briggs Orsbon, Ball State vs. Eastern Michigan
Orbson is coming off games of eight and ten catches, and against EMU he is likely to see plenty of more targets. Orbson is steady and a Cole Beasley clone, only that he finds the end zone a bit more. He is a solid sleeper play in all formats.
Billy Ray Stutzmann, Hawaii vs. Utah State
Hawaii returns home against the Aggies after laying a fantasy egg in a win at Idaho. Billy Ray played well however, as he found the end zone. He is a solid start as a PPR machine and can be played safely.
Josh Boyce, TCU vs. Wyoming
Boyce has had an up and down year. Here is an up. Wyoming cannot matchup with Boyce physically, and he remains a solid option in deep leagues. He will find paydirt this week against the Cowboys.
Josh Jarboe, Arkansas State vs. FAU
Jarboe is a solid complement to Dwayne Frampton and when ASU takes on the winless Owls, both receivers should prosper. Jarboe is coming off a seven-catch, 96-yard performance against North Texas and is a deep sleeper in all formats.
Mike Shanahan, Pittsburgh vs. Cincinnati
Shanahan had a nice night against UConn when he scored a couple of times, but he has not been as steady as many expected in 2011. Cincy may play a shootout with Pitt, but Shany is a bench option this week.
Alshon Jeffery, South Carolina vs. Arkansas
In the second-best SEC matchup of the weekend, the Razorbacks defense will key on the Gamecocks best weapon and with the team's QB situation muddled at best, he may struggle to be the gamechanger he is capable of.
Taveon Rogers, New Mexico vs. Georgia
Rogers is coming off back-to-back two-touchdown games but will not have the same room to roam against Georgia. While he may score a garbage time touchdown, he may not catch anything as well.
Chris McNeill, Wyoming vs. TCU
McNeill had not caught a touchdown since Week Two before his eight-catch, two-touchdown effort this weekend. TCU plays better defense than San Diego State and he should be stopped by the Frogs.
