We all knew Peyton Manning would be looking for a Thomas early. We just didn't realize it would be Denver Broncos tight end Julius Thomas.

While the more heralded Thomas—wide receiver Demaryius—had a huge game against the world champion Baltimore Ravens (five receptions, 161 yards, two touchdowns), the unheralded Julius stole the show early with some long gains and two touchdowns of his own. 

Of course, fantasy players have been here before, most recently during last year's opening game when then-Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Kevin Ogletree notched two touchdowns against the New York Giants, leaving fantasy players asking, "Who was that guy?"

In the video above, Bleacher Report's Josh Zerkle tells you whether should put any stock in Thomas' big night against the Ravens.
