Fantasy football owners will accept any point margin to keep a win streak alive, but if you are able to win in a commanding fashion, it makes the streak all the more sweet. That is what On top accomplished this week when they put up the third-highest point total this season, and won their third win in a row to destroy Team 6 137.86 to 74.34. Going streaking usually draws attention to yourself, but not in positive way. Not in this case. Since starting their win streak in Week 5, On top has moved from fifth place to second. They're doing it by scoring a lot of points and they own the second-highest overall point total in the league, averaging 103.38 points per matchup. Adding insult to injury, Team 6 got zero points from Eddie Lacy. Team 6 goes to 0-7 and remains in ninth place. On top has recently beaten Team 4 (87.76 to 84.66) and tappingthatass (110.48 to 88.70).

Smooth Moves by On top

  • The Toyota Hall of Fame would have its eyes on you for this week's win. But the Toyota Hall of Fame doesn't have eyes. Obviously.
  • All nine players in the starting lineup exceeded their projected points.
  • The 14.00 points by Justin Tucker was the league-high for a K this week.
  • Sat LeSean McCoy, who scored 1.10 points, fewer than any RB in the starting lineup.
  • Jacquizz Rodgers, who was picked up by On top, scored 16.30 points against a projected 11.75, topping his projection by 38.7%.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • 137.86 seems a lot higher when you're on the losing side of it. And the Toyota Hall of Fame knows you know that.
  • Martellus Bennett was last in the matchup in scoring with 0.50 points against a projected 6.23 and underachieved for the second time this season.
  • The WR corps couldn't keep pace with their counterparts from On top and were outscored 47.80 - 18.80.
  • Team 6 could have used more points from the TE position, where On top beat them 14.40 - 0.50.
  • 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. Allen Robinson scored a season-low 0.90 points, 6.9% of his projected 12.96, which is his lowest percentage of the year.

  • If On top played Team 6 every week, they'd be 5-2 this year.

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.
