#50-2012 Trent Richardson-RB Cleveland Browns Richardson was very consistent in his rookie season rushing for 950 yards and 11 touchdowns.  He  scored less than 10 fantasy points only once after his Week #7 performance against the Indianapolis Colts when he only gained 8 yards on 8 carries.  Richardson went in the first round of my recent mock draft which was surprising. I think he’s more of a late 2nd early 3rd pick.

Retro-#50-2002-Jerry Rice-WR-Oakland Raiders- The greatest wide receiver to ever lace them up was in the twilight of his career with only 2 seasons left in the tank in 2002 when he still caught 92 balls 1211 yards and 7 touchdowns.  Rice was a throw in during these days in trades, but in 2002 he was worth holding on to.

Looking Ahead

ESPN– Ahmad Bradshaw-RB Indianpolis Colts- Bradshaw should get at least a share of the carries in Indy, but picking him early is a big risk when he’s entering a new backfield.

CBS– Aaron Hernandez-TE  When I started the top 95 I printed off the list so if there were minor changes it wouldn’t effect the list  so yes this list is from 2 months ago.  This just shows what a mistake Hernandez made! He should have been working out chilling by the pool getting drafted by fantasy owners! Innocent before proven guilty but either way he threw a lot away in a short time.
