The Ultimate Fantasy Football Lineup of All-Time

We’ve all been there. If you play fantasy football, you’ve probably spent at least one Friday afternoon in the office, pouring through spreadsheets and charts that look like they could maybe have something to do with your actual job—just in the case the boss walks by.

Numbers. Stats. Projections. If you play fantasy football, you’re all too familiar with the nuances of optimizing the perfect lineup every week, hoping to avoid yet another loss that could cripple your season.

Now imagine a lineup so perfect—so utterly dominant—that you would never have to worry about losing any matchup. Ever.

That’s what we’ve assembled in this slideshow, each roster spot filled by a player who posted an all-time great fantasy season. The players in this lineup span several decades of NFL history, but each left an indelible mark with statistical performances most fantasy owners only dream of.

The idea is simple: We select players to fill a standard fantasy lineup, each of whom recorded an all-time great fantasy season, as dictated by standard fantasy scoring. Here’s a look at the scoring breakdown:

Passing Yards 25 yards per point
Passing Touchdowns 4
Interceptions -1
Rushing Yards 10 yards per point
Rushing Touchdowns 6
Fumbles -1
Receiving Yards 10 yards per point
Receiving Touchdowns 6
Sacks 1
Defensive Interceptions 2
Defensive Fumble Recovery 2
Defensive Touchdown 6
Safety 2
0 Points Allowed 10
1-6 Points Allowed 7
7-13 Points Allowed 4
14-20 Points Allowed 1
21-27 Points Allowed 0
28-34 Points Allowed -1
35+ Points Allowed -2
Field Goals 0-29 Yards 1
Field Goals 30-49 Yards 2
Field Goals 50+ Yards 3
PAT .5

No bonuses. No independent defensive players or points-per-reception scoring. Just pure, unadulterated fantasy football greatness—the way you would draw it up in your cubicle or corner office before the boss takes off early for the weekend.
