Week 7

  • 2-5
  • Weekly Grade: C+
  • 109.36
  • Firemen
  • 1-6
  • Weekly Grade: C+
  • 108.9

Vaqueros should take any fantasy football winnings straight to Vegas after the luck they've shown, defeating Firemen 109.36 to 108.90, despite having just the eighth-highest point total. Vaqueros also got just 83.9% of their 130.31-points-per-matchup season average. Luck hasn't always been their thing, though. They've also had one tough loss this season, losing even though they scored near the top of the league in points. The matchup was rough for Firemen (1-6, 783.98 points), who not only lost, but also ended up ninth in the league in points.

Smooth Moves by Vaqueros

  • Owen Daniels had the most points of any TE in the league this week with 14.80.
  • Tony Romo brought in 27.06 points, which was good enough to rank 10th in the league in scoring this week and second-best of any player on Vaqueros this season.
  • Lamar Miller has now overachieved in four straight games after scoring 15.30 points against a projected 12.22.
  • With 14.50 points, Greg Olsen had the second-highest score of any TE in the league this week.
  • Did you use any black magic this week? Vaqueros was still able to pull out a win with only 4 of their 10 starters exceeding their projected points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • After that performance, we have to wonder if Firemen cares about becoming a Hall Of Famer at all. That's right, you're being judged by an online recap. 
  • The 5.70 points scored by Reggie Bush fell short of his 12.29-point projection, the third straight game where that has happened.
  • It's times like these when it's important to support your players when they're down. So move the mouse pointer away from the DROP button. Reggie Wayne scored a season-low 3.50 points, 32.6% of his projected 10.72, which is his lowest percentage of the year.
  • Of the 10 starters on Firemen, 6 underperformed versus their projections.
  • The 3.00 points scored by Robert Woods was just 35.6% of his 8.42-point projection.

What If

  • If Vaqueros played Firemen every week, they would be 6-1 this season.
  • Besides Firemen, Vaqueros would have beaten only one other team this week.
  • Were they resting their players for this week? Vaqueros would have defeated Firemen 186.86 - 122.58 had they played each other last week.
  • Vaqueros would be 4-2 if they played the same schedule as Firemen.
  • If Vaqueros had played every team in the league each week, they would be 27-36.
  • Besides Vaqueros, Firemen would have been defeated by seven other teams this week.
  • Firemen would be 2-4 if they played the same schedule as Vaqueros.
  • If they played every team every week, Firemen would be 14-49.

  • The loss is the fourth straight for Firemen and extends the longest current losing streak in the league.
  • Vaqueros won by scoring 109.36 points, the lowest winning score in the league this season.

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.
