2012 #81 Steven Jackson- RB St. Louis Rams- Jackson was the definition of workhorse for the Rams through the years.  His scores decreased every year though he played hard every down.  Now he takes his talents to Atlanta and a great opportunity to become a fantasy TD machine again with  a great offense.  I like Jackson as a #2 back in deep leagues in 2013

Retro #81 2002 Joey Harrington QB Detroit Lions- This made me laugh too.  Harrington was horrible in every possible way in his days in Motown. He had 12 touchdown passes and 16 interceptions in 2002.  Harrington never lived up to his #1 draft pick by the Lions in fantasy or for the Lions organization.

Look Ahead #81

ESPN-Eddie Lacy- The Packers took Lacy and are expecting some more production from the running back position.  Since Aaron Rodgers has taken over it seems like every year there  is a different new running back behind him.  Cedric Benson was supposed to be the answer last year but he was derailed by injuries.  Lacy will have a shot in one of the best offenses in the NFL.

CBS Sports-T.Y. Hilton-  After a breakout rookie season, how does Hilton respond in his 2nd season.  What do you think will Luck and Hilton continue to improve together or was Hilton a flash in the pan?
