    Lights Out (7-3, 1,110.83 points) should consider changing their logo to a shamrock after they managed to squeak past Koala-Bearz 51.17 to 48.93. They won despite scoring only the 11th-highest point total in the league this week. Lights Out did just enough to win, putting up 46.1% of their 111.08 season average. They've also been on the unlucky end, coming away with one tough loss earlier this season when they scored near the top of the league in points. The matchup was difficult for Koala-Bearz (2-8, 719.57 points), who not only lost, but also ended up dead last in the league in points.

    Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 10

    Chad Johnson CIN - WR 2006 vs. San Diego 11 catches, 260 receiving yards, 2 TDs In a storied, and controversial, career that spanned 10 years, 766 catches and two surnames, Johnson (or Ochocinco, if you prefer) was never finer than in Week 10 of '06 when he posted 260 receiving yards (A Bengals record) and two touchdowns against San Diego in 49-41 loss.

    It currently stands as the third-highest receiving yardage total for a player in a losing effort. The following week, Johnson nearly matched his prolific Week 10 fantasy effort, going for 190 yards and three touchdowns. His two-week yardage tally of 450 yards broke John Taylor's record (448 yards) for back-to-back games. And you can bet he gave the opposing defensive backs an earful as he was in the process of making history.
    Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
