    Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 14

    Drew Bennett TEN - WR 2004 vs. Kansas City 12 catches, 233 receiving yards, 3 Anyone who owned Bennett in '04 doesn't need to be reminded of his epic late-season run with the Titans – it was truly a December to remember.

    Perhaps the greatest three-week stretch by a fantasy wide receiver in NFL history, Bennett combined for 28 catches, 517 receiving yards and eight touchdowns from Weeks 13-15, with his eight receiving scores over three games tying Jerry Rice for an NFL record. And in that amazing run, Week 14 stands tall as his best effort of the bunch (233 yards, three touchdowns).
