Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 5

Steve Largent Sea - WR 1987 vs. Detroit 15 catches, 261 yards, 3 TDs Hall of Fame receiver Steve Largent is no scrub, and he proved that emphatically in Week 5 of the strike-plagued ’87 season.

Largent crossed the picket line a week before the strike ended, affording him an opportunity to face a Detroit defense full of replacement players. Largent took full advantage of the sub-par competition, rolling up a dreamy PPR line of 15 catches, 261 yards and a TD hat trick. It was the last time in Largent’s storied NFL career that he would reach 100 yards or score multiple touchdowns in a game.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
