#32-2012 Alfred Morris RB Washington Redskins  Morris was one of the biggest fantasy football surprises of 2012 and he finished the season off in style with 6 straight double-digit scoring weeks. His week #17 effort was a beauty carrying the ball 33 times for 200 yards and 3 touchdowns. Morris is getting picked pretty high in most mock drafts even before Matt Forte.

Retro #32-2002 Fred Taylor RB Jacksonville Jaguars Taylor was a great fantasy running back for a long time in the 2000’s. He rushed for over 1,000 yards in 6 of those seasons.  I remember watching a game with some friends during the fantasy playoffs and Taylor broke a 75 yard touchdown only to be called back.  After my friend got done celebrating the touchdown his reaction to the penalty was classic as if the fantasy gods were against him which they were when he lost by 12 points that week in the playoffs.

Looking Ahead #32

ESPN-Larry Fitzgerald WR Arizona Cardinals Fitzgerald is awesome it’s a real shame that except for the Kurt Warner era has been saddled with sub par QB’s! Fitzgerald puts up good numbers regardless so don’t be shocked when he’s the 2nd wide receiver off the board after Megatron

CBS– Darrin McFadden-RB Oakland Raiders McFadden is a special talent that can’t stay on the field due to injuries.  I stay clear of McFadden every year.
