    Toyota Roster Tune-up

    • After that performance, we have to wonder if team jdub cares about becoming a Hall Of Famer at all. That's right, you're being judged by an online recap.

    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.
