    Not only did the burners keep their momentum alive, but they did so in a decisive fashion. They were the highest point total this week, which aided them to their sixth win in a row after they crushed TOMAX 109.78 to 75.90. The streak is the result of some high scoring by the burners, who owns the second-highest overall point total in the league this season and is averaging 100.67 points per matchup. With Dwayne Bowe delivering zero points for the burners, the margin wasn't as big as it could have been. TOMAX goes to 4-2 and slides to fourth place. The '72 Dolphins, Wooden's UCLA Bruins, and Rocky Marciano. That is the company that the burners will be mentioned with if they continue this undefeated streak.

    Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 6

    Trung Canidate STL - RB 2001 vs. New York Jets 23 carries, 195 rushing yards, 3 receptions, 37 receiving yards, 2 TDs Canidate's NFL candle burned briefly, but in Week 6 of '01, it also burned with the intensity of a 4,000-lumen halogen bulb.

    Against the Jets, Canidate rung up 232 yards from scrimmage, a sum that equated to more than 17 percent of Canidate's career yardage total (1,355) covering a 46-game span. Canidate would go on to top 100 rushing yards two more times in his career, but nothing would come close to matching the Big Apple beat down that he served the Jets.
    Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
