Fantasize Me: Breakout Stars vs. 1-Week Wonders in Fantasy Football

BR StudiosFeatured ColumnistSeptember 10, 2013

Opening night of the NFL season saw the Denver Broncos crush the Baltimore Ravens.

A funny thing happened in that game. Peyton Manning may have discovered yet another lethal offensive weapon in tight end Julius Thomas.

As if Manning needed more weapons. 

After Thursday night's game, fantasy waiver wires were on fire trying to get "Orange Julius." Did you get him? Is he a breakout star or a one-week wonder? 

Our fantasy experts Josh Zerkle and Anita Marks answer that question and more in the video above. They also take a look at four other players who are either breakout stars or one-week wonders. 

Let us know in the comments below whether you think they're new fantasy stars or they just happened to have a good game.
