Fantasy Focus: The Dog Days of Summer #92


Our first running back arrives on our list at #92. When I first started playing fantasy football the entire first round was all running backs, but the game has changed to a passing league and while running backs are still at a premium, quarterbacks and wide receivers are not creeping into the first rounds of drafts.

#92-2012

Ahmad Bradshaw-RB New York Giants- Bradshaw has been a frustrating player his entire career.  First he stole goal line carries from Tiki Barber and then when he became the featured back was replaced at the goal line.  Now he’s a man without a team with his constant injury problems.  Last season stats were 1,015 yards rushing with 6 touchdowns while catching 23 balls for 235 yards.  If he is signed I don’t see a big role for Bradshaw without a major injury on that team.

Retro #92- 2002

Martin Gramatica-kicker-Tampa Bay Buccanears  143 point “Automatica” had a very symmetrical season with 32 field goals and 32 extra points.  When mentioning the Gramatica family one has to show this great video of the most bizarre sports injury

Looking Ahead #92

ESPN- Rashard Mendenhall- RB -Arizona Cardinals- Arriving in the desert will either be a blessing in disguise or like entering the witness protection system for Mendenhall.

CBS Sports- Danario Alexander- WR- San Diego Chargers- Phillip Rivers must like 6’5 Wide Receivers! Alexander had a breakout season after Vincent Jackson departed.  The question is will Alexander be able to build on his 2012 season.
