#46-2012- C.J. Spiller-RB Buffalo Bills- Spiller was the #1 fantasy running back after two games, but came back to earth after that but still had a very solid season gaining over 1,200 yards and 6 touchdowns while also collecting 459 receiving yards and 2 touchdowns.  Spiller finally got his chance with Fred jackson missing 6 games due to injury and now Spiller is being drafted pretty high in Mock Drafts.  Spiller will still split some time with Jackson and a be learning a new offense, but has all the talent to be a top 10 fantasy back in 2013.

Retro-#46-2002– Joe Horn-WR-New Orleans Saints Horn was very good for a long time in New Orleans, in 2002 he caught 89 balls 1314 yards and 7 touchdowns.  Horn was a solid fantasy option for years but when he pulled a sharpie out of his sock after scoring a touchdown, I really lost any interest in Horn.

Looking Ahead-

ESPN-Danny Amendola-WR New England Patriots- This is my sleeper top 10 fantasy receiver.  He was good with Bradford, so one would guess he will be great with Tom Brady in the Wes Welker spot.

CBS-Reggie Wayne-WR-Indianapolis Colts- Wayne is at the end of his career, but he should at least have another good season with Andrew Luck as his quarterback.  Wayne has a slot guy in T.Y.Hilton to take off the heat off of him, so he should be a solid #2 receiver in 2013.
