    Top 5 Fantasy Football Performances of All-Time – Running Backs

    Dec 16- 4 min read

    Last week, I posted an article on the Top 5 Fantasy Football Quarterback Performances of All-Time. Today, we are back for another installment in the series focusing on running backs! Unlike the quarterback segment, a few of the top running back performances featured in this article are from decades ago.

    Here is the scoring scale used for all players:

    • 1 point per 10 rushing yards
    • 1 point per 10 receiving yards
    • 1 point per reception
    • 6 points per rushing/receiving touchdown
