THUNDERING BLURB » week 7 ANDREW GARDA'S ENDLESS TAKES ON NFL AND COLLEGE FOOTBALL Fri, 22 Oct 2010 12:30:31 +0000 en hourly 1 Top Fantasy Performers – Week 7 Tue, 21 Oct 2008 11:37:00 +0000 admin One single list this week due to time constraints (been doing that a bunch this trip). Will be back to the full position break down next week – I think this will move to Tuesdays permanantly though, so I have a day to sort through stats and include MNF performances.

  1. Steven Jackson - 176 total yards, 3 TDs, 2 catches – If the Rams start rolling -WATCH OUT!
  2. Mewelde Moore - 134 total yards, 2 TDs, 5 catches, 1 rec TD – How bad is Parker’s knee?
  3. LenDale White - 156 total yards, 3 TDs, 1 catch – We always knew he had talent, but probably the top of his production for the year.
  4. Dominic Rhodes - 114 total yards, 2 TDs, 4 catches – Good performance – Addai might practice this week, so what will his value be?
  5. Adrian Peterson - 130 total yards, 2TDs, 1 catch – Finally the big performance we were looking for. Just in time for his Bye week.
  6. Chris Johnson - 172 total yards, 1 TD, 2 catches – White and Johnson on the same list? Tenn’s run game is going off and the team looks solid. If only they could throw the ball.
  7. Andre Johnson - 11 catches, 141 yards – Just needs to find the end zone.
  8. Matt Cassel - 185 yards passing, 3 TDs – Outstanding night. Did Cassel put all doubt aside? No, Denver’s defense is that bad. Still, huge step forward for him.
  9. Jeff Garcia - 310 passing yards, 1 TD – In the doghouse or not, the old dog still has some tricks. Looked solid this weekend and is an ok play in a QBBC.
  10. Clinton Portis - 183 total yards, 1TD, 1 catch, 1 fumble – Just missed a top 5 fantasy RB perfromance but continues a trend of solid numbers and reliability in yet another year where the top RBs have been a mess.

That’s all for now – remember, tomorrow the site will be pretty light as I am traveling – we’re back on the normal schedule Thursday.
