Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 4

Anthony Allen Was - WR 1987 vs. St. Louis 7 Catches, 255 yards, 3 touchdowns To say that Allen’s Week 4 performance in ’87 stands out in his NFL career would be a major understatement.

In what was the first of three games played that season with replacement players due to a player’s strike, Allen took advantage of his moment in the spotlight (and the Cardinals scab secondary) to the tune of 255 receiving yards and three touchdowns. He set the Washington franchise record for receiving yards, which still stands today. In total, Allen played parts of just five NFL seasons - including just those three strike games in ’87 – amassing a total of 767 receiving yards, a third of which came in this Week 4 contest.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
