    Smooth Moves by Phantoms

    • Golden Tate had 67.00 points, the second-highest WR score of the week and the eighth-highest WR score in the league this season.
    • Phantoms saw their second-largest single-week point total by a player this season with Drew Brees scoring 103.45 points. The score was also high enough to rank third in the league.
    • Tony Romo put up 74.40 points, which was the 10th-highest score in the league this week.
    • With 17.00 points, Blair Walsh had the highest score for a K in the league this week.
    • Benched QB Andy Dalton, who scored 35.10 points, fewer than any QB in the starting lineup.

    Toyota Roster Tune-up

    • Blue Dragons may have missed the opportunity for a win, but they gained an opportunity to be mercilessly taunted by Phantoms. 
    • Left Carson Palmer on the bench, where he led the team in scoring with 71.80 points.
    • The 4.00 points scored by Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie fell short of his 10.86-point projection, the fourth straight game where that has happened.
    • This is how people lose everything in casinos. Phantoms thought their luck would change and went back to the well with Ryan Mundy. However, he scored 16.00 points against a projected 22.07 and has now underachieved in three straight games.
    • Gotta hit rock button before you can start to rise. It was a season-low 11.50 points for Tramon Williams this week. It was also a season-low for his performance versus projections, reaching only 56.4% of a projected point total of 20.38.

    What If

    • Phantoms would be 4-3 if they played Blue Dragons every week.
    • Phantoms would have beaten four other teams besides Blue Dragons this week.
    • Had they played each other last week, Phantoms would have defeated Blue Dragons 698.88 - 513.85.
    • Phantoms would be 2-4 if they played the same schedule as Blue Dragons.
    • If Phantoms had played every team in the league each week, they would be 18-31.
    • In addition to Phantoms, Blue Dragons would have lost to just two other teams this week.
    • Blue Dragons would be 2-4 if they played the same schedule as Phantoms.
    • If they played every team every week, Blue Dragons would be 17-32.

    Game Notes

    • Blue Dragons has lost five times and four of them have come to teams who beat their scoring average in that matchup.
    • After scoring 604.53 points against a projected 552.12, Phantoms has overachieved for three straight weeks.

    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.
