Every once in a while, it happens.
A player has an otherworldly performance in the NFL, translating to the sort of fantasy football outing that single-handedly carries teams to victory.
Week 9 of the 2012 season brought with it such a performance by rookie running back Doug Martin of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
As we celebrate—or curse—Martin's huge day, and give an honorable mention nod to New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady's 380-yard, six touchdown explosion against the Tennessee Titans in 2009 (which tied Martin), let's take a look at how that performance stacks up against the greatest single-game fantasy performances of the past decade.
Note: These scores were tabulated using a standard scoring system that awards one point for 10 rushing or receiving yards, 25 passing yards and each reception, six points for all touchdowns and subtracts two points for turnovers.
