#54- 2012 Frank Gore Wr San Francisco 49ers- Gore is getting towards the end of a very good career, and yet he’s been very consistent every year of his 8 year career. His average is 1,200 yards and 8 touchdowns meaning like Matt Forte he’s not going to win very many weeks for you, but he’s also not going to lose very many if any weeks for you.  Gore is in the late batch of running backs selected in Mock drafts.

Retro #54-2002 Laverneous Coles- WR- New York Jets- Coles was a classic 50/50 fantasy receiver in the 2000’s. 1/2 the time you wanted in him your lineup and the other half, no thanks.  Coles was another guy that seemed to be in every trade in our dynatasy league.  He was OK but not a top 1 or 2 guy most seasons.

Looking Ahead #54

ESPN-Lamar Miller RB Miami Dolphins- Someone has to replace Reggie Bush right?

CBS- Marques Colston-WR New Orleans Saints- Colston is a receiver I never have liked and looking at his stats I don’t know why.  He’s very good with touchdown passes, but he can go a couple weeks not hearing from him.
