  • A heated blanket would be a great gift for Sterling Shepard during this cold streak. He scored below his projection in four straight games after scoring 3.20 points against a projected 7.56 this week.
  • Team 4 tried to fight through 2 of their 9 starters getting zeros, but could not overcome it.
  • The RBs on Team 4 let them down, getting outgunned by the RBs on tappingthatass 27.50 - 0.30.

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.
