#29-2012 Marshawn Lynch RB Seattle Seahawks I had Lynch pegged as a bust going into 2012 because he got the big paycheck, but the Russell Wilson offense led to a lot of rushing yards for Lynch in 2012, over 1,500 yards and 11 rushing touchdowns.  In most drafts when the running backs go quickly in the first round, Lynch will be one of those gone in Round 1 so if you want him you may need to make a move to get him.

Retro #29-2002 Jon Kitna QB Cincinnati Bengals Kitna had an interesting career, but in 2002 it was a solid one for the Bengals throwing for over 3,100 yards 16 TDs and 16 picks. Kitna was excitable and unreliable but could also throw in a big play here and there.

Looking Ahead #29

ESPN- Tom Brady QB- New England Patriots Brady is going to throw for close to 5,000 yards no matter who his targets are going to be this season.  Wherever you pick him up at outside of Round 1 is a great fantasy pick.

CBS-Frank Gore San Francisco 49ers- Gore and father time are about to collide. This could be his last very good season in San Fran.
