#39-2012 Roddy White-WR Atlanta Falcons White is one that got away from me on my dynasty league franchise. I drafted him and he did nothing for two years and he was a throw in on a trade before his third season which is the same year he became very good year in and year out.  Last year he caught 92 balls for just under 1,200 yards and 9 touchdowns.  With Jones on the other side and Tony Gonzalez down the middle the Falcons are a very good fantasy offense.

Retro-#39 Tommy Maddux-QB-Pittsburgh Steelers I have to admit I totally forgot about Maddux ever putting up this good of a stat line.  In 2002 Maddux threw for 2,800 yards 20 TD’s and 16 INT’s. Maddux stats in 2003 were even better but that would be the end of the Maddux comeback for the 1st round pick by the Denver Broncos in 1992.

Looking Ahead-#39

ESPN– Dwayne Bowe-WR Kansas City Chiefs I’m staying away from any Chiefs players this season. This is a terrible offense and trying to guess who will have a good enough season is too hard to predict.

CBS– Randall Cobb-WR Green Bay Packers- Cobb could be great this season or very erratic with Jordy Nelson and James Jones getting a lot of target too.
