FF HoF- Emmitt


Emmitt Smith

During the Cowboys run of three Super Bowls in four years, Emmitt Smith led the NFL in fantasy points each season. Emmitt came in with a bang in 90 putting up over 1100 yards and 11 tds in his first season. Over the next nine seasons Smith was in the top six among running backs eight times. He never lost time due to injury and his only sub par season was when he failed to get into the endzone more than four times. You could always count on him for the yardage during the 90s. He definitely hung on a little too long as the 2000s came along, but hopefully you didn't hang on with him. He dropped to a 20 something ranked running back in his final five seasons. This doesn't take away from him being the most successful fantasy running back of all time.
