    Smooth Moves by Strazburgs Stallions

    • Antonio Gates seemed to take offense to this week's projected points. He ranked second in the league in scoring and beat his scoring projection by 344.9%, the fourth-highest percentage in the league.

    • Strazburgs Stallions won even though all three of their WRs scored below their projected points.

    Toyota Missed Opportunities

    • Duncan Young's Team should get prescription glasses. At least we assume that's why they didn't bother reading the expert articles from the Toyota Hall Of Fame.
    • Left Knile Davis on the bench, where he scored 22.50 points to beat his scoring projection by 676.1%, the second-highest percentage in the league.

    Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 2

    Chris Johnson Ten - RB 2009 vs. Houston 16 carries, 197 rushing yards, 9 receptions, 87 receiving yards, 3 TDs In the opening week of the '09 campaign, Titans RB Chris Johnson did little to tip his hand that he was about to threaten the NFL's all-time single-season rushing record, debuting that season with a meager 57 rushing yards (0 TD) against Pittsburgh.

    But in Week 2, he let the cat out of the bag with an explosive 284 total yard effort against the Texans that included a TD hat trick. In a season in which he garnered the nickname CJ2K for the 2,006 rushing yards that he finished the season with, Week 2 was his finest individual fantasy effort.
    Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
