The TOP 10 Most Fantasy Football Points Ever By A Running Back
By Eddie Sebastian
Last year, I had Derrick Henry on my fantasy football team, and he carried my squad into the playoffs. He was the eighth man in NFL history to run for 2,000 yards in a single season. 2,027 rushing yards 17 TDs, and 114 receiving yards, to be exact. That comes out to 316 points in the standard scoring system. So, where does his season rank among the best running backs? He doesn’t even crack the Top 10.
Standard scoring, or as the Millennials call it, NON-PPR, is 1 point for every 10 yards receiving or rushing, 6 points for every touchdown scored, and 2 points if you score on a 2 point conversion. This applies to running backs, tight ends, and wide receivers.
Here are the Top 10. If you had one of these dudes on your team, you probably made the playoffs. Number 7 O.J. Simpson put up those stats in a 14 game schedule. Number 2, Marshall Faulk also only played in 14 games due to an injury. And Priest Holmes is the only player to be on the list twice representing the Kansas City Chiefs. Tomlinson, Faulk, Smith, Simpson, and Davis are members of the Football Hall of Fame.

The Fantasy Baseball Draft Boards will not be available in 2022. Unfortunately, we did not have time to make the baseball draft boards or update our website due to the MLB lockout. However, we will still do a fun photoshoot with gorgeous models donning adorable baseball uniforms, post the pictures on our social media, and plan to sell them in 2023.
