    Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 16

    Onterrio Smith MIN - RB 2003 vs. Kansas City 25 touches, 183 total yards, 3 TDs Smith became one of the unlikeliest heroes of fantasy championship week when, in Week 16 of his rookie '03 campaign, he busted out for 146 rushing yards and three ground scores against the Chiefs.

    His NFL career would come to an end just 14 games later, with only four more touchdowns to add to his career bottom line. And he would never again reach the century mark in rushing yards. But he surely left a lasting impression on all those fantasy owners that gambled on him in Week 16 of '03 and were rewarded with title hardware.
    Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
