Who has the most fantasy points in a game? Here are the best single game totals in soccer history



Michael Vick, Nick Foles, and Mitchell Trubisky have one thing in common: They’ve had some of the best quarterback performances from a fantasy football game of all time. Most fantasy owners probably have fond memories of a particularly important game by one of their players, or a monstrous game that cost him a win in a given week. To remind you of some of them, we have presented the 10 best fantasy games ever, broken down by position (QB, RB, WR, TE, Kicker).

Our data comes from Football Reference’s Game finder tool. We set our parameters to go back to the NFL-AFL merger in 1970, so Otto Graham and Jim Brown won’t be on the list. But some veterans find their way here with performances that would likely be remembered even more if fantasy football had been prominent in those decades.

There were some tough near misses: QBs in the next 10 included the legendary trio of Eric Hipple, Ryan Fitzpatrick and Joe Namath. Adrian Peterson’s 296-yard rushing day was missed because he didn’t find the end zone long enough. And because this isn’t a PPR touchdown, Terrell Owens is ripped off his 20-catch, 283-yard day in 2000, in part because he had just one touchdown that day.

Note: Scoring counts for 4-point passing touchdowns, 6-point rushing and receiving touchdowns, 0.04 points per passing yard and 0.1 points per receiving and carrying yard.
