    Shaadowfoxes Brings Down Scrapper, Relieves Them from First Place

    Week 7

    • Shaadowfoxes
    • 5-2
    • Weekly Grade: A-
    • 121.12
    • Scrapper
    • 4-3
    • Weekly Grade: C
    • 92.52

    Shaadowfoxes (third place, 5-2, 719.16 points) knocks Scrapper (4-3, 798.30 points) out of the league's top spot after beating them 121.12 to 92.52. They put up the highest point total they've scored this season, which warrants a self-pat on the back. Only a small one though, don't get too cocky. Shaadowfoxes hit their projections and put up 3.8% more than their projected 116.65 points, while Scrapper fell short of their projections and scored only 81.2% of a projected 113.95. Peyton Manning went nuts, as he racked up the third-highest score this week with 30.72 points for Scrapper.

    Smooth Moves by Shaadowfoxes

    • Russell Wilson had the fifth-most points in the league this season with 39.82, leading the league in points for the week.
    • Jamaal Charles scored 19.10 points, which ranked seventh out of all the RBs in the league this week.
    • With 15.20 points, Pierre Garcon ranked eighth in the league in scoring among WRs this week.
    • Apparently playing within themselves was good enough. Shaadowfoxes won despite having only 5 of their 10 starters exceed their projected points.
    • Had the second-highest starter/bench scoring ratio in the league this week, scoring 121.12 points from players in the starting lineup versus 29.42 points from players left on the bench.

    Toyota Roster Tune-up

    • Scrapper may have missed the opportunity for a win, but they gained an opportunity to be mercilessly taunted by Shaadowfoxes. 
    • A heated blanket would be a great gift for Reggie Bush during this cold streak. He scored below his projection in three straight games after scoring 4.10 points against a projected 11.13 this week.
    • The RBs for Scrapper got outscored 40.80 - 15.50 by the RBs for Shaadowfoxes.
    • It's times like these when it's important to support your players when they're down. So move the mouse pointer away from the DROP button. Giovani Bernard scored a season-low 2.50 points, 17.1% of his projected 14.63, which is his lowest percentage of the year.
    • Julio Jones did not meet his 13.05 projected points and has now underperformed versus projections for four straight weeks. He also scored a season-low 6.10 points.

    What If

    • Shaadowfoxes would be 3-4 if they played Scrapper every week.
    • Shaadowfoxes would have beaten six other teams besides Scrapper this week.
    • If they played the same schedule as Scrapper, Shaadowfoxes would be 2-4.
    • If Shaadowfoxes had played every team in the league each week, they would be 30-33.
    • Besides Shaadowfoxes, Scrapper would have been defeated by five other teams this week.
    • Timing really is everything. Shaadowfoxes would have lost to Scrapper 117.28 - 55.81 had they played each other last week.
    • If they played the same schedule as Shaadowfoxes, Scrapper would be 5-1.
    • If they played every team every week, Scrapper would be 37-26.

    Game Notes

    • All three of the losses for Scrapper this season have come when their opponent had their highest-scoring week of the season.
    • Shaadowfoxes won by 28.60 points, covering the 2.70-point spread.
    • What good are running backs if they are running backwards instead of forwards? The 15.50 total points by the RBs on Scrapper was their smallest RB output this season.
    • Shaadowfoxes had their highest score of the season with 121.12 points.
    • Scrapper had their lowest output of the season with 92.52 points.
    • C.J. Spiller did little to help Shaadowfoxes, underperforming versus projections for the third straight game with 7.00 points against a projected 13.54.
    • Just because Robert Horry has seven NBA championship rings, doesn't mean he's one of the greats. Despite being on the winning team, Larry Donnell scored 5.70 points against a projected 8.02 and has now underachieved in three straight games.
    • It was the biggest loss of the season for Scrapper.

    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.
