    Smooth Moves by BlitzGang

    • Not the best, but in the conversation. Tony Romo ranked 10th in the league in scoring this week with 22.66 points. It was also the fifth-highest score of any player on BlitzGang this season.
    • Wisely sat Andy Dalton this week, who had 5.04 points, the lowest QB score on the team.
    • With 22.30 points, Ronnie Hillman ranked third in scoring among all RBs in the league this week.
    • The 19.30 points scored by Randall Cobb was the fourth-highest score by a WR in the league this week.
    • Starter Jimmy Graham put up a zero, but BlitzGang still won.

    Toyota Roster Tune-up

    • Snot Bubbles may have missed the opportunity for a win, but they gained an opportunity to be mercilessly taunted by BlitzGang. 
    • Missed an opportunity by leaving Eli Manning on the bench. He scored 23.02 points, the seventh-highest score in the league this week.
    • With 5.40 points against a projected 13.40, Alfred Morris did not meet his projection for the third straight game.
    • The 1.70 points scored by Delanie Walker fell short of his 7.04-point projection, the third straight game where that has happened.
    • Gotta hit rock button before you can start to rise. It was a season-low 1.60 points for Giovani Bernard this week. It was also a season-low for his performance versus projections, reaching only 12.6% of a projected point total of 12.70.

    What If

    • If BlitzGang played Snot Bubbles every week, they would be 3-4 this season.
    • Besides Snot Bubbles, BlitzGang would have defeated five other teams this week.
    • If they played the same schedule as Snot Bubbles, BlitzGang would be 3-3.
    • If BlitzGang had played every team in the league each week, they would be 36-27.
    • Besides BlitzGang, Snot Bubbles would have been defeated by four other teams this week.
    • Timing really is everything. BlitzGang would have lost to Snot Bubbles 83.04 - 81.52 had they played each other last week.
    • Snot Bubbles would be 4-2 if they played the same schedule as BlitzGang.
    • Snot Bubbles would be 34-29 if they played every team every week.

    Game Notes

    • Maybe the league is colluding against them. All five of the losses for Snot Bubbles this season have come when their opponent scores higher than their season average.
    • This is the fifth game in a row where Snot Bubbles has failed to reach their projected points.
    • Although Snot Bubbles lost, they did put up the fifth-highest score for a losing team in the league this season.
    • At 1.44 points, the margin of victory was the smallest in the league this season.
    • Snot Bubbles has the longest current losing streak in the league, having lost five straight games.
    • The 27.40 points by the RBs on BlitzGang was the season-high for combined points from the position.
    • BlitzGang outdid their projection in the win, while Snot Bubbles came in under their point expectation. BlitzGang is now 4-0 when overachieving, while Snot Bubbles falls to 0-5 when failing to reach their projection.
    • Snot Bubbles could not close out the win even with the help of Golden Tate, who scored 22.40 points, the third-highest score among all WRs in the league for the week.

    Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 7

    Rob Bironas TEN - K 2007 vs. Houston 8 field goals, 2 extra points If you started Titans footsmith Rob Bironas in Week 7 of '07, you had the rare luxury of landing one of the top three fantasy performances of that week, regardless of position, with only New England QB Tom Brady and Cincy RB Kenny Watson ahead of him.

    It was rare air indeed for kicker fantasy production, but then again, Bironas' eight field goals set an NFL record that still stands. This performance may conjure bitter memories for Browns fans, as Bironas' final field goal with no time left on the clock gave the Titans a 38-36 victory over the Texans. Tennessee would finish the season at 10-6 and made the playoffs by virtue of winning a tiebreaker with, you guessed it, the 10-6 Browns. It was Cleveland's only winning season since '02.
    Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
