Smooth Moves by Dak to the Future

  • If this were a dream sequence, you'd hear a deep voice announce, "Dak to the Future, the Toyota Hall of Famer." But it's not.
  • We won't judge you if you want to bow to Julio Jones. He ranked ninth in the league in scoring with 31.40 points.
  • Dak to the Future is either a fortune teller or really knows their stuff. Tyrod Taylor, who was picked up by Dak to the Future, scored 26.34 points against a projected 19.65, topping his projection by 34.0%.
  • With 28.00 points, Michael Thomas ranked seventh in the league in scoring among WRs this week.
  • Those were the projections? We thought that was the starting point. 6 of the 9 starters on Dak to the Future exceeded their projected points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Funny, the Hall provides articles you could have studied. But instead you watched Los Rancheros cry trying.
  • Dak to the Future had a better day at the QB position, topping Los Rancheros 26.34 - 9.70.
  • You've gotta hit rock button before you can start to rise. It was a season-low 9.70 points for Russell Wilson this week. It was also a season-low for his performance versus projections, reaching only 45.3% of a projected point total of 21.39.
  • 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. Tyler Eifert scored a season-low 1.90 points, 37.6% of his projected 5.05, which is his lowest percentage of the year.
  • Los Rancheros was not able to win even though only 4 of their 9 starters fell short of their projected point total.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 7

Shannon Sharpe Den - TE 2002 vs. Kansas City 12 Catches, 214 yards, 2 touchdowns In a career that included eight Pro Bowls and a seven top 2 finishes at the TE position in fantasy scoring, Sharpe was never better than his 214-yard, two-TD performance against the division-rival Chiefs in Week 7 of 2002.

In fact, no tight end has ever had a better week since the AFL-NFL merger in 1970. Sharpe still stands as the only tight end to tally 200-plus receiving yards in a game and his PPR-popping 12 catches is a total that has only been reached 17 times by a TE since the merger.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
