#37- Eric Decker-WR Denver Broncos Decker had a very good 2012 season catching 85 balls for 1,064 yards and 13 touchdowns as the #2 receiver in Denver. Decker and the Broncos offense should be even more improved with the addition of Welker but at what cost will this be to Decker’s stats?

Retro #37– Randy Moss-WR Minnesota Vikings Moss caught 106 for 1,347 and 7 touchdowns. Moss is a future Hall of Famer and when he was motivated to play was the greatest in the NFL for a long time. The question for Moss has been and always will be what Moss would show up at the Stadium that day.  My two Vikings friends still live in 1998 on Thanksgiving day when he caught 3 balls all day but they were all long TD’s. Too bad Gary Anderson screwed them over in the playoffs against Atlanta.

Looking Ahead #37

ESPN-Andre Johnson-WR Houston Texans Johnson actually stayed healthy last season for the first time in what seems like his career. Johnson doesn’t get too many long TD’s anymore but he catches a lot of balls and is still a huge target.  He’s still one of the top 5 wide receivers off the board.

CBS– Lamar Miller-RB Miami Dolphins- I’m not a believer in Miller being a fantasy star. I’ve been wrong in the past, but he seems like an ok option in deep leagues that need a flex or third running back option.  What do you think about Miller?
