Jamaal Charles' back is going to hurt on Monday.

The Kansas City Chiefs superstar running back surely carried owners everywhere to fantasy wins during Week 15, as he carved up the Oakland Raiders defense to the tune of 215 total yards (20 rushing, 195 receiving) and five total touchdowns (one rushing, four receiving).     

Charles kicked the game off in style, taking a screen 49 yards to the house on the very first play from scrimmage. Of course, he liked it so much that he decided to do it again, scoring on a 39-yard screen on the Chiefs' next drive.

The 26-year-old continued to take advantage of the Raiders being in a giving mood, turning two turnovers into two touchdowns (one-yard plunge and 16-yard reception) before the second quarter was even over.

As the team's official Twitter feed pointed out, the performance put him in a class with a former fantasy superstar:

If the game didn't turn into a blowout, Charles probably could have continued to add to his gaudy totals, but as Alessandro Miglio of Bleacher Report points out, it's still one of the biggest fantasy performances in history:

And with the Indianapolis Colts, who entered the day giving up a healthy 4.4 yards per carry, on the slate in Week 16, Charles' momentum isn't likely to stop anytime soon.
