Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 8

Sterling Sharpe GB - WR 1993 vs. Tampa Bay 10 Catches, 147 yards, 4 touchdowns In his seven-year career with the Packers, Sharpe had plenty of big games, but none was better than his Week 8 effort against the Buccaneers in ’93.

In the midst of a season in which he would total a career-high 112 catches, Sharpe pulled in 10 passes against Tampa Bay, four of them culminating in the end zone. Those scores along with 147 receiving yards amounted to Sharpe’s best fantasy effort of his career, and the best fantasy tally by a WR in Week 8 since the AFL-NFL merger.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
