- Tristan H. Cockcroft, Fantasy
Jerry Rice's retirement on Monday marks the end of one of the most dominant careers in professional sports history. For fantasy owners, Rice owned the game, racking up more than 3,000 points in a 20-year career; he averaged nearly 175 points a season.
But where do Rice's best seasons rank among the greatest in fantasy football history? Listed below are the 10 best campaigns at each position; we've broken these down by position instead of overall, because quarterbacks regularly rack up more points than running backs, who rack up more than wide receivers, etc.
(Fantasy points are calculated using our standard scoring system, but exclude the bonuses for 40-yard touchdown scores. Seasons before 1995 are not calculated using game-by-game logs; fantasy points for yardage were instead figured using the player's average total per game.)
Tristan Cockcroft lists the top fantasy seasons of all time.
