    Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 2

    Chris Johnson Ten - RB 2009 vs. Houston 16 carries, 197 rushing yards, 9 receptions, 87 receiving yards, 3 TDs In the opening week of the '09 campaign, Titans RB Chris Johnson did little to tip his hand that he was about to threaten the NFL's all-time single-season rushing record, debuting that season with a meager 57 rushing yards (0 TD) against Pittsburgh.

    But in Week 2, he let the cat out of the bag with an explosive 284 total yard effort against the Texans that included a TD hat trick. In a season in which he garnered the nickname CJ2K for the 2,006 rushing yards that he finished the season with, Week 2 was his finest individual fantasy effort.
    Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
