In a slow time of year for the NFL and our Baltimore Ravens, we will take a side-trip to another player on another team that all true football fans can appreciate. Former San Diego Chargers and New York Jets RB LaDainian Tomlinson played eleven seasons in the NFL, the first nine in San Diego, where he earned his future Hall of Fame reputation.

However, LT might be known better for being the top draft pick in fantasy football for quite a few years, including the best single season ever. In 2006, Tomlinson scored an incredible 28 rushing touchdowns, not to mention three more via the pass. A story on SB Nation compares the best seasons by a running back in recent memory.

It used to be that if you were lucky enough to get your fantasy league's top draft pick, it was a given that you'd take LT and then everyone else would have to decide who to take afterwards and fight for second place. Nowadays, many leagues are ruled by the quarterbacks more than the running backs.

Times may have changed, but it will be a long time if anyone comes close to that magical 2006 fantasy football season by LaDainlian Tomlinson.
