Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 16

Onterrio Smith Min - RB 2003 vs. Kansas City 183 yards from scrimmage, 3 touchdowns Smith has to go down as one of the most unlikely fantasy Championship Week heroes in the NFL’s modern era.

Leading up to his 146-rushing yard, three rushing TD outburst against the Chiefs, Smith had hinted at something special to come with a 148-yard rushing performance in Week 15 against the Bears. But, for a player that had tallied just two touchdowns in the previous 13 games he played that season, the TD hat trick was shocking. In fact, his two-week rushing total in Week 15-16 amount to 26 percent of his career rushing total, and he would go on to score just four more touchdowns in his next 12 games before his career came to an end.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
