    Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 1

    Peyton Manning Den - QB 2013 vs. Baltimore 27–for-42 passing, 462 yards, 7 TD passes, 0 INTs Peyton Manning announced his record-breaking intentions with authority to open the '13 campaign, throwing for seven touchdowns against the Ravens, tying an NFL-record that hadn't previously been accomplished since 1969.

    His 462 passing yards were also the second-best mark of his storied career, helping produce a fantasy performance that will go down as one of the greatest performances by a signal-caller to date, with only a Michael Vick explosion against Washington on November 15th, 2010 ranking ahead of it. An interesting side note to Peyton's monster Week 1 effort was that little brother Eli Manning put forth the second-best QB performance, throwing for 450 yards and four touchdowns at Dallas.
    Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
