Whether an NFL team wins their actual game has nothing to do with whether their Players performed well in Fantasy Football. Need proof? Three of the six players on this list are on the Miami Dolphins, a team that lost 27-24 to the Oakland Raiders on "Sunday Night Football" from Nov. 5.

Here are the best performances from players who were mostly unowned (owned in less than 25 percent of ESPN leagues) in fantasy football leagues in Week 9. Each week, one quarterback, two running backs, two wide receivers, and one tight end will be highlighted.

Jay Cutler, Miami Dolphins

Week 9 stats: 311 passing yards, three passing touchdowns, zero interceptions

After missing last week's game with two cracked ribs, Cutler came back with a vengeance and easily had his best game of the season. His previous season-highs prior to Sunday were 230 yards and two passing touchdowns. The 311 passing yards are his most since December 13, 2015, and it was his first three-touchdown performance since November 15, 2015.

Running backs

Corey Clement, Philadelphia Eagles

Week 9 stats: 51 rushing yards, two rushing touchdowns, one reception, 15 receiving yards, one receiving touchdown

For the second straight game, Clement saw plenty of mop-up duty in a blowout win for the Philadelphia Eagles.

On Sunday, he fully took advantage scoring three touchdowns. The undrafted rookie rushed for 54 yards in Week 8 but only had 77 rushing yards and two receptions in the team's first seven games.

Damien Williams, Miami Dolphins

Week 9 stats: 14 rushing yards, six receptions, 47 receiving yards, one receiving touchdown

With Jay Ajayi traded to the Eagles, Williams was one of the more-added players in fantasy.

More fantasy owners added his Miami Dolphins teammate Kenyan Drake though, as Williams was still only owned in 23.6 percent of ESPN leagues entering Week 9. He had just 12 carries and eight receptions in Miami's first seven games. While he averaged just two yards a carry on his seven attempts Sunday, the fourth-year pro tied a career-high with six receptions.

Wide receivers

Terrance Williams, Dallas Cowboys

Week 9 stats: nine receptions, 141 receiving yards

Now in his fifth season, Williams finished with career-lows of 44 receptions for 594 yards in 2016. Through the Dallas Cowboys' first seven games, he recorded only 21 catches for 216 yards and no touchdowns. While Williams still didn't crack the end zone for the first time this year, his nine catches represent a new career-high and his 141 receiving yards are the third time in his five years that he has gone over a hundred.

Deonte Thompson, Buffalo Bills

Week 9 stats: seven receptions, 81 receiving yards, one receiving touchdown

Thompson makes the list for the second time in his three games since becoming a Buffalo Bills member.

Ineffective despite starting three of five games with the Chicago Bears in 2017, before he was released and picked up by Buffalo. Week 7 saw Thompson end up with 107 receiving yards (second-most of his career), while in Week 9 he finished with seven receptions (second-most of his career) and his fourth career touchdown in six seasons.

Tight end

Julius Thomas, Miami Dolphins

Week 9 stats: six receptions, 84 receiving yards, one receiving touchdown

Thomas has been non-existent to fantasy owners since joining the Dolphins last season. He entered Week 9 with 14 games played for Miami, and he only compiled 47 catches for 449 yards. He scored his first touchdown of the season on Sunday, and his previous season-highs were three receptions and 58 yards.
