We’re not even through Week 1, and the Cowboys’ Cole Beasley already has the catch of the 2017 season. Beasley blew us all away with this one.
During the fourth quarter of the Cowboys’ season opener against the Giants on Sunday Night Football, Beaasley managed to catch a ball off of the nameplate on his jersey. Yes, his back.
He bobbles the ball one-handed, traps it on his back, gets control, makes sure both feet are down, and that’s a catch.
It takes a remarkable amount of concentration and coordination to do all of this at once while making sure he has control of the ball so it will be ruled a catch. A tip of the cap to Beasley for a really incredible play.
The Cowboys are taking care of business against the Giants and are leading the Giants 16-3. Beasley has three catches for 32 yards so far, but this was definitely the most memorable one of the night — and maybe for the whole season.

Mike Gillislee, RB, Patriots: His Patriots debut was an exceptional one, as he managed 22.5 PPR (and non-PPR) fantasy points on Thursday, easily setting new personal bests in both departments. More important, he received all four carries on Patriots plays within three yards of the goal line, cementing his status as the replacement for LeGarrette Blount in that role.

Kenny Golladay, WR, Lions: He was one of the reasons for Stafford’s comeback performance, and Golladay’s 22.9 PPR and 18.9 non-PPR fantasy points were the most by any wide receiver in an NFL debut since Allen Hurns’ 27.0 and 23.0 in 2014 Week 1 and the 19th- and 17th-most by a debuting wideout since 1950. Though there was some chatter that TJ Jones might cut into Golladay’s snaps to begin the season, Golladay squelched those worries, making him a likely top Week 2 pickup in the 95.4 percent of ESPN leagues in which he is available.
