    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.

And in that amazing run, Week 14 stands tall as his best effort of the bunch (233 yards, three touchdowns).
