2012 #69– Lance Moore WR New Orleans Saints- Moore in 2012 had his most productive season yards wise with 1,041 but only recorded 6 touchdowns which is a down slightly from the past two seasons when he had 8. If you were in a league that started 3 Wide Receivers or had a Flex position than Moore was an excellent player to have on your roster with his very consistent weekly totals.  He scored more than 10 points in 11 weeks but did have a stinker Week #14 with only 1 catch for 26 yards.  Moore should be solid again with the return of Sean Payton from FavreGate Prison.

Retro-#69 2002-Rod Gardner-WR- Washington Redskins- Gardner only had one good season and it was in 2002 when he 71 balls for 1,006 yards and 8 touchdowns.  Gardner never duplicated any of those stats again so as stated with other players before, he was a high commodity after 2002 so hopefully in dynasty and keeper leagues you sold instead of hold him. Gardner caught one ball in 2006 than disappeared from the NFL.

Look Ahead- #69

ESPN– Steve Johnson-WR Buffalo Bills- Johnson is one of those guys I don’t really like and never trade for, that said he is the most talented wide receiver in Buffalo but his role and the offense will be a huge question mark so I surely wouldn’t reach high for him when drafting wide receivers.

CBS– Tony Romo-QB Dallas Cowboys- Romo is a solid fantasy quarterback but he can hurt you with one of his patented late season bad games.  Best case is drafting Romo having him play great the first five weeks than trade him before everyone watches him have a 5 Interception game.
