    Smooth Moves by Scum & Villainy

    • Not the best, but in the conversation. Tony Romo ranked eighth in the league in scoring this week with 36.66 points. It was also the fifth-highest score of any player on Scum & Villainy this season.
    • Took Matthew Stafford out of the starting lineup, who scored 34.76 points on the bench, fewer than the starting QB.
    • What do Apache helicopters, F-117 Nighthawks and Golden Tate have in common? They are all dangerous aerial weapons. He ranked third in the league in scoring among WRs this week with 26.40 points.
    • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just Jordy Nelson posterizing opponents. He had the 10th-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 16.00 points.
    • By scoring 13.00 points, Blair Walsh beat his 8.08 projected points by 60.9%.

    Toyota Roster Tune-up

    • Amandiculous probably blew their shot at becoming a Toyota Hall Of Famer with that loss, but there's a bright side. Let us know when you find it.
    • Did not start Russell Wilson, who led the league in scoring with 53.92 points.

    • 7 of the starters on Amandiculous scored less than their projected points.

    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.
