Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 10

Chad Johnson CIN - WR 2006 vs. San Diego 11 catches, 260 receiving yards, 2 TDs Before he changed his name to the incorrect Spanish translation of his jersey number (85), Chad Johnson was a perennial Pro Bowler, named to the Pro Bowl squad five consecutive seasons from ’03 to ’07.

The pinnacle of this impressive run was a two-week stretch in the middle of the ’06 season, starting with a 260-yard, 2 TD dismantling of the Chargers secondary in Week 10. The next week, Johnson would nearly equal his 38-point fantasy output by serving up a 190-yard, 3 TD beat down on the Saints. The two weeks stand as the all-time greatest fantasy performance by a wide receiver in back-to-back contests.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
