Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 7

Shannon Sharpe Den - TE 2002 vs. Kansas City 12 Catches, 214 yards, 2 touchdowns In a career that included eight Pro Bowls and a seven top 2 finishes at the TE position in fantasy scoring, Sharpe was never better than his 214-yard, two-TD performance against the division-rival Chiefs in Week 7 of 2002.

In fact, no tight end has ever had a better week since the AFL-NFL merger in 1970. Sharpe still stands as the only tight end to tally 200-plus receiving yards in a game and his PPR-popping 12 catches is a total that has only been reached 17 times by a TE since the merger.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
