#62 2012- Blair Walsh-PK-Minnesota Vikings- Walsh was the kicker for an offense that either scored a Adrian Peterson touchdown or needed a field goal which worked out well for Walsh’s fantasy scroing.  Kickers are only to be picked in the last  round and Walsh is exceptable for your kicker in 2013.

Retro-#62-2002 Rodney Peete- QB- Carolina Panthers- Really didn’t expect to see Peete’s name on the list but in 2002 he threw for 2,630 yards with 15 touchdowns and 14 interceptions.  Peete played in the NFL for 16 years and in 2002 it would be his last as a starter and his  most prolific topping his best season in Detroit by 100 yards.  Peete was a good not great quarterback during most of the 1990’s.

Looking ahead #62

ESPN- Colin Kaepernick- QB San Francisco 49ers- The hype machine will be huge this training camp and pre-season games for Kaepernick.  I think defenses will catch up to him and that offense sooner than later.

CBS- Hakeem Nicks- WR New York Giants- When Nicks is healthy he’s very good but he’s rarely healthy.  Nicks and Eli Manning have a good working relationship when Nicks is on the field..
