    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.
