    Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 15

    Jamaal Charles KC - RB 2013 vs. Oakland 16 touches, 215 total yards, 5 TDs In hindsight, it's hard to believe that Charles' greatest fantasy effort of his career came on a day when he rushed for just 20 yards.

    Such was the case in Week 15 of '13, as Charles managed to gain just 20 rushing yards on eight carries at Oakland. But there's more than one way for a fantasy running back to skin a cat, and for Charles, this day was all about the passing game. Catching all eight of his intended targets from QB Alex Smith, Charles turned those grabs into an electric 195 receiving yards and four scores. He would tack on a rushing score to finish that crucial fantasy playoff week with more than twice as many fantasy points than any other running back that week.
    Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
