Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 12

Kellen Winslow SD - TE 1981 vs. Oaklan 13 catches, 144 yards, 5 TDs While Winslow is probably best remembered for his grueling, heroic effort in a 41-38 overtime victory against Miami in the playoffs of the ’81 season (13 catches, 166 yards, TD), it was his Week 12 performance of that same year (5 TDs at Oakland) that goes down as not only the best statistical tally of his career, but the best fantasy performance by a tight end since at least the AFL/NFL merger of 1970.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
