Welcome to Fantasy Football SPIN where you get the SPIN on the latest fantasy football news.
With Aaron Hernandez trading in his Pats jersey for an orange jump suit and the Gronk continuing to break dance following arm and back surgeries – the top flight depth at the TE position has taken a hit this offseason. If you miss out on Jimmy Graham – we suggest owners target other positions and wait to nab a TE in rounds 7-8 as there are many options that should surprise with a change of scenery.
The 49ers Michael Crabtree will miss most if not all of the upcoming season (can Anquan Boldin survive as a #1 ?). A few WRs will be returning from injury riddled 2012 campaigns as Percy Harvin, Miles Austin, Desean Jackson, Pierre Garcon, and Hakeem Nicks will be risky selections heading into the season but each has the potential to post rock solid WR2 value if they reach their potential and can avoid the trainers table. Justin Blackmon (4 games) and Josh Gordon (2 games) will see their fantasy stock take a hit based on suspensions but they make for solid value plays later in your draft.
In 2012, rookies Andrew Luck, RG3, and Russ Wilson had impressive first seasons and Ryan Tannehill showed solid potential. This year’s crop of rookies (Geno Smith, EJ Manuel) are not positioned to post the same levels of success keeping them off the fantasy radar for the most part. In this article we profile some of the signal callers changing uniforms as Carson Palmer will look to breathe life back into Larry Fitzgerald’s WR1 status and Alex Smith will look to prove his worth as a former #1 overall pick as he’ll be under center in Andy Reid’s pass happy West coast offense.
In this article series we will profile the ball carriers that will be changing uniforms in 2013 (Bradshaw in Indy and Ivory with the J-E-T-S) as well as a few potential impact rookies (Bell in Pittsburgh and Ball in Denver) that could make a splash in their first season in the big leagues. With Reggie Bush taking his talents from South Beach to Detroit, Lamar Millar will be given a chance to excel as the feature back in a Dolphin offense that could surprise after the offseason additions of WR Mike Wallace and TE Dustin Keller.
In this article series we will profile the ball carriers that will be changing uniforms in 2013 as well as a few potential impact rookies that could make a splash in their first season in the big leagues. Steven Jackson (Atlanta), Rashard Mendenhall (Arizona) and Reggie Bush (Detroit) will have a change of address in 2013. Rookies Eddie Lacy and John Franklin look to bring the the Packer ground game back to respectability.
After spending countless hours hunkered down in our make shift war room, pouring over hours and hours of Path to the Draft and various other draft shows, we’ve formulated our best guess as to where the top prospects will come off the board when Roger Goodell takes to the podium on Thursday night at Radio City Music Hall. With the Revis trade now finalized, its unlikely that the order will change much more before Thursday.
Each week we will analyze the defenses and provide our take on which Quarterbacks you should start and which should be benched based on matchups with stout run defenses, stubbed toes, potential weather problems, conduct code violations etc.
