Was Michael Vick's MNF Game the Best Fantasy Performance Ever?

I've been pondering this question since Michael Vick put up a ridiculous 333-yard passing, 80-yard rushing, 6 touchdown (4 passing and two rushing) performance. So I've been wondering if this was the best fantasy performance of all time, or at least the last 10 years (which is about how long I've been doing fantasy football).

I was going to limit my search to the last 10 years because I unfortunately don't have the time to scour the internet and historical NFL stats to find out. But fortunately for me, there are people on the internet with more time than me!

One of the top results for "best fantasy performances" was this article from Total Pro Sports:

Since fantasy football rules vary from league to league, they used a fairly standard set of rules and found that Michael Vick's performance was....the top fantasy football performance of all time! Well, sort of.

Billy Cannon put up more points than Vick, but it was a year before there really was "fantasy football." But I say that Cannon is still number 1, just for accumulating 300+ yards of rushing and receiving plus 5 touchdowns.

Performances of note: Clinton Portis at #4 with 218 yards rushing, 36 yards receiving and 5 touchdowns. This was an important performance because I had him on my team that year, so I remember this distinctly. Yay me!
