Congrats to you if you have Julio Jones on your fantasy football team. Jones killed the Carolina Panthers and after a 75-yard catch and run for a touchdown in the fourth quarter he reached 300 yards on the day.

Jones goes in the books for the sixth-most receiving yards in NFL history for a single game.

  1. Flipper Anderson – 336 yards in 1989
  2. Calvin Johnson – 329 yards in 2013
  3. Stephone Paige – 309 yards in 1985
  4. Jim Benton – 303 yards in 1945
  5. Cloyce Box – 302 yards in 1950

Box was a halfback so technically, this is the fifth-best game ever for a receiver.

Jones is a monster. If you have Matt Ryan on your fantasy team you're doing even better because he's thrown for 503 yards.
