Fantasy Football 2186 43 Week 1 Fantasy Football Studs and Duds 31901515 Stud - Reggie Bush vs. MIN Stud+-+Reggie+Bush+vs.+MIN Fantasy Football

Bush had to overcome a thumb injury, but managed to supress the pain and rack up 191 total yards that included a 77-yard touchdown catch and run.  He combined with second-string running back Joique Bell for 46.3 fantasy points against the Vikings.  Oh, the Lions also have Calvin Johnson.  Fantasy gold mine in Detroit. - Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 43 Week 1 Fantasy Football Studs and Duds 31901517 Stud - Terrelle Pryor vs. IND Stud+-+Terrelle+Pryor+vs.+IND Fantasy Football

Terrelle Pryor's last preseason game was not pretty, but he did just enough in training camp to win the starting gig in Oakland.  In his first start, Pryor nearly upset the Colts on the road.  The speedy quarterback also leads all players with 112 rushing yards in Week 1.  The mark broke the Raiders' franchise rushing record by a quarterback previously held by Rich Gannon (85 yards).  He finished with 21.9 fantasy points - 10th among fantasy QBs (before Sunday night football). - Ryan Fowler

Kirby Lee - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/09/08/090813-NFL-Fantasy-G1-AA_20130908180640825_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/09/08/090813-NFL-Fantasy-G1-AA_20130908180640825_107_80.JPG
Fantasy Football 2186 43 Week 1 Fantasy Football Studs and Duds 31901526 Stud - Brian Hartline vs. CLE Stud+-+Brian+Hartline+vs.+CLE Fantasy Football

Mike Wallace inked the big off-season contract to join the Dolphins.  He finished with one reception for 15 yards against the Browns.  Hartline, the unsung hero of seasons past, hauled in nine passes for 114 yards with a touchdown.  Oh, and how about the action photo by Ken Blaze!!! - Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 43 Week 1 Fantasy Football Studs and Duds 31901519 Dud - Lamar Miller vs. CLE Dud+-+Lamar+Miller+vs.+CLE Fantasy Football

The Dolphins won the game, but the No. 1 running back on the depth chart, Lamar Miller, had nothing to do with it.  Ten carries for three yards (0.3 YPR) is not good football and even worse fantasy football. - Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 43 Week 1 Fantasy Football Studs and Duds 31901523 Stud - Julius Thomas vs. BAL Stud+-+Julius+Thomas+vs.+BAL Fantasy Football

Before Peyton Manning threw seven touchdowns, Julius Thomas was well on his way to earning the bold headline in The Denver Post.  Before Thursday night's game against the Ravens, Thomas had one career catch in five career games.  Now we all know that Manning loves targeting the tight end, but one battle Thomas didn't have to fight against the Ravens was the a TE timeshare that Joel Dreessen and Jacob Tamme endured last season.  He finished with five receptions for 110 yards and two touchdowns.  Yes, Demaryius Thomas and Welker also had two touchdowns. - Ryan Fowler

Ron Chenoy - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/09/08/090813-NFL-Fantasy-G5-AA_20130908180640826_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/09/08/090813-NFL-Fantasy-G5-AA_20130908180640826_107_80.JPG
Fantasy Football 2186 43 Week 1 Fantasy Football Studs and Duds 31899681 Dud - Blaine Gabbert vs. KC Dud+-+Blaine+Gabbert+vs.+KC Fantasy Football

The cut Blaine Gabbert sustained on Sunday is a microcosm of the Jaguars' offense.  Somebody must stop the bleeding.  Gabbert needed 15 stitches to close a gash on his throwing hand - the same hand that suffered a fractured thumb on August 17.  It's as if the football gods are giving the Jaguars' coaching staff an out to name Chad Henne the starter.  Prior to the injury, Gabbert was a mess, 16-35 for 121 yards with two turnovers.  Only when Henne entered the game did fantasy star-on-the-rise, Cecil Shorts, become relevant again.  My bet is Henne starts Week 2. - Ryan Fowler

Rob Foldy - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/09/08/090813-NFL-Fantasy-G7-AA_20130908180715834_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/09/08/090813-NFL-Fantasy-G7-AA_20130908180715834_107_80.JPG
Fantasy Football 2186 43 Week 1 Fantasy Football Studs and Duds 31899680 Stud - Kellen Winslow vs. TB Stud+-+Kellen+Winslow+vs.+TB Fantasy Football

I'm not sure what was more unexpected, that the Jets would beat the Buccaneers or that Kellen Winslow would lead the team in receiving and find the end zone.  In his best game since November 2011, the tight end caught seven balls for 79 yards with the score.  Winslow had two touchdowns the last two seasons combined (17 games). - Ryan Fowler

Joe Camporeale - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/09/08/090813-NFL-Fantasy-G10-AA_20130908180725840_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/09/08/090813-NFL-Fantasy-G10-AA_20130908180725840_107_80.JPG
Fantasy Football 2186 43 Week 1 Fantasy Football Studs and Duds 31899693 Dud - Marshawn Lynch vs. CAR Dud+-+Marshawn+Lynch+vs.+CAR Fantasy Football

Like Spiller, Lynch left little to be desired in Week 1.  Granted, he did touch the ball 19 times, but only managed 52 total yards without a trip to the end zone.  I truly believe this says more about the Panthers' defense than Lynch's future prospects.  Keep the faith.  The Skittles will fly again. - Ryan Fowler

Sam Sharpe - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/09/08/090813-NFL-Fantasy-G9-AA_20130908180718838_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/09/08/090813-NFL-Fantasy-G9-AA_20130908180718838_107_80.JPG
Fantasy Football 2186 43 Week 1 Fantasy Football Studs and Duds 31899699 Stud - Anquan Boldin vs. GB Stud+-+Anquan+Boldin+vs.+GB Fantasy Football

What a debut for Anquan Boldin!  The 49ers offseason signing at wide receiver became even more valuable when Michael Crabtree was injured this summer.  Boldin finished with 208 receiving yards on 13 receptions with a touchdown against the Packers.  It's the second 200-yard game of his career (vs. Lions 9/7/2003 - rookie) and the 13 snags are the most in a game since late-December 2007.  - Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 43 Week 1 Fantasy Football Studs and Duds 31899673 Dud - C.J. Spiller vs. NE Dud+-+C.J.+Spiller+vs.+NE Fantasy Football

Fantasy draft season is still open for a few weeks, but prior to Week 1, Spiller finished with an average draft position of No. 4 pick overall.  He performed like a 12th-rounder against the Patriots.  Spiller finished with 17 carries for 41 yards (2.4 YPR) and five receptions for 14 yards.  Fred Jackson finished with 13 carries for 67 yards (5.2 YPR) and four receptions for 41 yards.  The door has swung back open for a RBBC in Buffalo heading into Week 2. - Ryan Fowler

Kevin Hoffman - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/09/08/090813-NFL-Fantasy-G8-AA_20130908180716836_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/09/08/090813-NFL-Fantasy-G8-AA_20130908180716836_107_80.JPG
Fantasy Football 2186 43 Week 1 Fantasy Football Studs and Duds 31901456 Stud - Peyton Manning vs. BAL Stud+-+Peyton+Manning+vs.+BAL Fantasy Football

A season ago, we were concerned about the Broncos' quarterback's neck, but on Thursday night, our attention turned towards the Ravens' mental health.  It was as if Peyton Manning booted up Madden and it was set to rookie mode.  Manning finished with 462 passing yards and seven touchdowns.  It was the most passing touchdowns in a game since 1969 when Joe Kapp was behind center for the Minnesota Vikings.  Manning finished with 60.3 fantasy points in standard-scoring leagues.  - Ryan Fowler

Giants receiver Victor Cruz certainly put on a show Sunday night, scoring three TDs to keep New York in a game that it seemed to repeatedly try to give away in Dallas. There's no doubt Cruz earned 'Stud' status in Week 1. But the biggest stud? That was decided in the season's opening game on Thursday night. Click ahead for the rest of the weekend's biggest studs and duds.
