Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Now that IOU'$ got that embarrassing loss out of the way, let's work on our Toyota Hall of Fame potential.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 16

Stephone Paige KC - WR 1985 vs. San Diego 8 catches, 309 yards, 2 TDs In the past 65 years, only three NFL receivers have managed to surpass 300 receiving yards in a game, and only one of them (Paige in Week 16 of ’85) was able to pad his fantasy line with multiple scores.

Paige’s mammoth outing against the Chargers goes down as the second-best Week 16 fantasy line of all-time (only Jerry Rice in ’95 did him better). It was also the only time in the first 60 games of Paige’s career that he would top even 100 receiving yards.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
