Just like Batman and Robin, Jordy Nelson and Leonard Fournette were a deadly combo for Amy Elizabeth's Team, leading the way to a 125.32 to 117.18 victory over Jennifer's Team. They registered 25.90 and 22.40 points, respectively. Both sides failed to meet expectations, but Amy Elizabeth's Team secured the win with just 74.2% of their projected points (168.84). Jennifer's Team was led by the tag team of DeAndre Hopkins, with 22.50 points, and Ty Montgomery, who scored 21.30. Following a zero-point effort from the Houston Texans Defense, Jennifer's Team was left to wonder "what might have been?". Amy Elizabeth's Team (1-0) starts off the campaign in fifth place while Jennifer's Team (0-1) debuts in ninth place.

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.
