Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 1

Julius Thomas Den - TE 2014 vs. Indianapolis 7 catches, 104 yards, 3 TDs Julius Thomas might not find the grass as green in Jacksonville as it was in Denver.

The former Broncos tight end scored a combined 24 touchdowns in the past two seasons, three of which came on opening weekend in ’14 against the Colts. Combined with his 104 yards, Thomas delivered the top Week 1 fantasy contribution by a tight end since the AFL/NFL merger in 1970. Fast starts are nothing new for the Jaguars prized offseason acquisition, as Thomas also opened up 2013 in a big way, hanging 110 yards and two touchdowns on Baltimore in Week 1.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
