Mehdi's Team (4-3, 539.94 points) found a way to blow past Rickie's Team 58.30 to 37.60, despite scoring just the eighth-highest point total in the league this week. Mehdi's Team should feel pretty lucky, winning with just 75.6% of their 77.13 per-game average. As the saying goes, however, luck is when preparation meets opportunity. Mehdi's Team has had some help from the schedule. They're currently in fourth place even though they rank just eighth in total points. It was a rough outing for Rickie's Team, who fell to 3-4 (521.18 points) while also ending up ninth in points.

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 ’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 ’11 to ’13.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
