Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 2

Barry Sanders Det - RB 1998 vs. Cincinnati 233 total yards, 3 TDs Terrell Davis Den - RB 1998 vs. Dallas 191 rushing yards, 3 TDs Week 2 of ’98 was special, as it featured two of the greatest running backs of all-time in vintage form.

And in a way, it was a swan song for both players. Sanders would score just one more time over the remaining 14 weeks of the ’98 season, opting to take early retirement at the end of the campaign.

As for Davis, his ’98 season continued on in epic fashion, as he would finish with 2,008 rushing yards and 23 touchdowns. But an ACL injury early in the ’99 season proved to be a death knell for Davis’ short, but sweet, career, as he played just 17 games combined from ’99 to ’01 (scoring 4 touchdowns in that span) before deciding to hang up his cleats.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
