    Smooth Moves by The Spartans

    • Benched Carson Palmer, who had the lowest QB score on the team with 20.12 points.
    • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just Golden Tate posterizing opponents. He had the third-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 21.40 points.
    • This is the bar, and this is the team jumping over it. The Spartans had 6 of their 9 starters exceed their projected points.

    Toyota Roster Tune-up

    • Remember that thing Chase Tromp did instead of reading the expert articles from the Hall Of Fame? Shouldn't have done that. 
    • Shane Vereen was left on the bench, where he bested his expected 12.93-point total by putting up 23.40 points.
    • The 5.60 points scored by Julio Jones was a season-low. He had a projected 12.32-point total, and has now underachieved in four straight games.
    • It was a season-low scoring total for Robbie Gould, who had 2.00 points. He had a projected total of 7.90 points and this week was the fourth straight game of underperformance versus his projection.
    • 6 of the starters on Chase Tromp 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.
