Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 1

Earnest Gray NYG - WR 1980 vs. St. Louis 9 Catches, 174 yards, 4 touchdowns A second-round pick by the Giants in 1979, Earnest Gray posted modest numbers in his rookie campaign, with just 28 catches, 537 yards and four total touchdowns.

So it was unexpected, to say the least, when he opened up his sophomore campaign with a 174-yard performance that included four touchdowns (matching his total from his entire first season). Gray would go on to finish '80 campaign with 10 touchdowns, but no other performance that season came close to what he did in the Week 1 opener, which stands as the greatest Week 1 fantasy effort by a wide receiver since the AFL/NFL merger in 1970.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
