Smooth Moves by Comeback Kid

  • Todd Gurley didn't have the best score of the week, but there ain't no shame in his game. He had 32.30 points, the third-highest RB score of the week and the eighth-highest RB score in the league this season.
  • Sat TE Julius Thomas on the bench, where he had the lowest TE score on the team with 1.40 points.
  • Quarterbacks get the blame when the team loses and the glory when the team wins. With 26.02 points, Andrew Luck had the fourth-highest score of any QB in the league this week and earned his praise.
  • Amari Cooper scored 24.30 points, the fourth-highest WR score in the league this week.
  • Even with a zero from starter Antonio Gates, Comeback Kid was still able to win.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Fantasy Football is a mental sport. Using your brain is a great way to ensure success.
  • Did not start Mike Evans, who ranked fifth in the league in scoring and beat his scoring projection by 127.7%, the sixth-highest percentage in the league.
  • Whoever gave you this advice, you might want to lose their number. Picked up and started Matt Jones, who then scored below his 13.86-point projection with 8.10 points.
  • Picked up the Pittsburgh Steelers Defense, which was last on the team in scoring with 2.00 points.
  • With 6.90 points, Larry Fitzgerald had his lowest output of the season and tallied just 36.9% of his 18.68 projected points, his lowest percentage of the year.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 7

Darren McFadden Oak - RB 2010 vs. Denver 196 total yards, 4 TDs For a brief moment in time, many, many hamstring pulls ago, Run-DMC was considered an elite fantasy running back, thanks to efforts like that in Week 7 of โ€™10 versus Denver.

His huge effort against the Broncos was part of a season in which McFadden would finish second to only Arian Foster in fantasy points per game among running backs. But his three missed games that season would foreshadow the future, as he quickly became a health risk punchline in fantasy circles by missing an average of over six games per season from โ€™11 to โ€™13.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
