    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.
