#35-2012 Wes Welker-WR New England Patriots  The #1 option for the Patriots moves his talents to Denver and another future Hall of Famer Peyton Manning.  Welker is going to catch a lot of balls in the slot and should make this offense almost unstoppable.  Welker seems to make one bad drop at the wrong time but he will catch around 100 balls in 2013.

Retro #35-2002 Marshall Faulk-RB St. Louis Rams- Faulk was a great fantasy running back for years in St. Louis with the 1999 Rams team one of the greatest fantasy teams of all-time.  Faulk had two more good year left in him in 2003 and 2004 before he headed to NFL Network Studios

Looking Ahead #35

ESPN-Reggie Bush-RB Detroit Lions-Bush should be solid in Detroit but how many touches will he get in his new offense is the big question.

CBS-Larry Fitzgerald WR Arizona Cardinals- Fitzgerald is good no matter who is throwing him the ball, but great when he has great QB’s throwing him the ball like Kurt Warner. Kurt Warner is not walking threw that door this year so expect a good season not great from Fitzgerald.
