    Smooth Moves by David's Team

    • One of these days the prognosticators will give Matt Forte his due props. He ranked eighth in the league in scoring with 22.90 points against a projected 17.29 and has now overachieved in three straight games.
    • David's Team won despite having only 2 of their 9 starters exceed their projected points.
    • Dez Bryant scored 15.10 points, the eighth-highest WR score in the league this week.
    • With 6.80 points, Rob Gronkowski had the fifth-highest score of any TE in the league this week.

    Toyota Roster Tune-up

    • Remember that thing YOUR WORST NIGHTMARE did instead of reading the expert articles from the Hall Of Fame? Shouldn't have done that. 
    • Left Russell Wilson on the bench, where he led the league in scoring with 37.12 points.
    • This is one of those mistakes that you continuously think about for ten years. Did not start Shane Vereen, who scored 23.40 points to rank sixth in the league in scoring.
    • The San Francisco 49ers Defense scored the fewest points in the league this week with a season-low -2.00 points.
    • A heated blanket would be a great gift for Keenan Allen during this cold streak. He scored below his projection in three straight games after scoring 5.80 points against a projected 7.29 this week.

    What If

    • If David's Team played YOUR WORST NIGHTMARE every week, they would be 5-2 this season.
    • Besides YOUR WORST NIGHTMARE, David's Team would have defeated four other teams this week.
    • Were they resting their players for this week? David's Team would have defeated YOUR WORST NIGHTMARE 112.90 - 101.10 had they played each other last week.
    • David's Team would be 4-2 if they played the same schedule as YOUR WORST NIGHTMARE.
    • If David's Team had played every team in the league each week, they would be 47-16.

    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.
