Upon further review I have many more:

Galloway FOR SURE
Glen
McCardell

L.Jordan
S.Jackson
R.Brown
Caddy when healthy

Some of the RB's you may have guessed they would produce, but none were proven and im sure they have all outproduced what everyone expected.

Shockey has beena pleasant surprise. Could have as many as 10TDs and go over 1,000 yards.

Jordan has been a little of a surprise as well. I actually expected more yards and less TDs. Who would have thought he would be on pace to score 20 times.

Steve Smith is a pretty big surprise. I thought he could have a pretty decent year but he's got 50 catches, 800yds, and 8TDs already.

Frankly, Jackson is doing exactly what I thought he would do if they used him correctly because StL's schedule is putridly easy.

Can't forget to mention Mark Brunell. He's probably going to have a career year.

Not sure what everyone else thought he would do going into the season, but Jake Delhomme was vastly under-rated in my 12-team league. I think he was around the 10th or 11th QB taken - I was planning to platoon him with Pennington, but that didn't quite work out. Largely because Steve Smith has been excellent, Delhomme has put up big numbers for me almost every week.

Other guys (some have been named already):

Plaxico, MEshawn, Galloway, Griese (until he got hurt)

I don't know why Steve Smith is on all of these lists.... We knew the guy was going to be a stud if he came back healthy... I don't see too much there that is all that surprising....


The shocker squad has to be:

QB: Mark Brunell

RB: Thomas Jones, Mike Anderson

WR: Santana Moss, Joey Galloway, Terry Glenn

TE: Erron Kinney

K: Neil Rackers

DEF: Indianapolis


You could have drafted this whole team with picks in the 10th round or later, and I'd be willing to bet you'd be winning most fantasy leagues right now....

I don't think anyone had Steve Smith on pace to SURPASS Muhammad's numbers from last year. Have you seen the guy's statline recently?

800/8 in 7 games? = 1800/18 on the year

That's really not inflated/unrealisitc at all if you consider he has two games with only 34 and 12 yards thrown in there. Almost Jerry Rice-esque.
