PPR leagues are growing in popularity as a way to even the fantasy playing field for WRs and RBs. The workhorse RB is a dying breed so targeting backs that can double dip and provide receiving yards is a wise strategy to employ for the astutae fantasy owner.
Today we present a detailed article from Brad Evans (Yahoo / RotoArcade) that delves deep into the fantasy universe to uncover some potential PPR monsters.
While Peyton Manning garners all of the hype in Mile High, don’t sleep on 2nd string rookie RB Ronnie Hillman as Brad compares to the San Diego State alum yo a potential Darren Sproles type based on his dual threat ability. Fellow rookies TE Coby Fleener (Colts) and Jacksonville WR Justin Blackmon could also be primed for first year success as both of their respective offenses look to escape the passing game doldrums that plagued both teams in 2011.
The depth at the TE position is well documented and a potential breakout season from Fred Davis is one reason that fantasy owners can wait to select a TE. Provided he can avoid another suspension, Davis is positioned to rank among the team leaders in receptions and TDs as he enters his 5th NFL season as Washington’s passing attack should improve with the switch from Sexy Rex to RG3.
