by 4 years ago

Jamaal Charles had one of the most ridiculous fantasy weeks ever with 5 touchdowns and 215 all-purpose yards against the Raiders. With 51 points in standard scoring, it was one of the highest fantasy scores of all-time. Here are 7 other notable fantasy football scores in NFL history.

7. Doug Martin-51 points (2012)

The most recent performance on the list–Martin ran for 251 yards and 4 touchdowns. His 272 all-purpose yards fell just short of Dillon’s rookie record.

6. Corey Dillon-51 points (1997)

As a Cincinnati Bengal, Dillon had 276 all-purpose yards and 4 touchdowns against the Houston Oilers. His 246 rushing yards gave him the rookie record, though it was later eclipsed by the aforementioned Doug Martin performance

5. Shaun Alexander-52 points (2002)

The most amazing part of this performance was that all 5 of Alexander’s touchdowns came in the first half. He had several chances to tie the NFL record but just missed.

4. Jim Brown-52 points (1961)

In a game against the Philadelphia Eagles in 1961, Hall of Famer Jim Brown ran for 237 yards and 4 touchdowns. He also had 52 receiving yards. He was also 0-1 throwing the ball, just missing an extra touchdown that’d make give him the highest fantasy score ever.

3. Jerry Rice-52 points (1990)

This is widely regarded as the greatest receiving day in NFL history. Rice burned the Falcons D for 225 yards and 5 touchdowns. After the game, Rice referred to it as “just another game.” He is the G.O.A.T.



2. Clinton Portis-54 fantasy points (2003)

In 2003, Clinton Portis obliterated the Kansas City Chiefs defense for 254 yards and 5 touchdowns.



1. Gale Sayers-55 points (1965)

In 1965, against the San Franciso 49ers, Sayers produced arguably the greatest game in NFL history, amassing 202 yards and 5 touchdowns from scrimmage. He also scored a sixth touchdown on an 85-yard punt return late in the game because why not? And so it was, the greatest fantasy football game ever played.
