#25-2012 Doug Martin-RB-Tampa Bay Buccaneers  Martin had the game of the season in Week #9 against the Oakland Raiders when he  ran for 254 yards and 4 touchdowns. Martin was highly regarded when he arrived in Tampa but not too many expected this great of season. Martin cooled off towards the end of the season but still ended with 1,454 yards and 11 touchdowns. The only question with Martin is was the end of the season hitting the wall or the NFL catching up to his attack?

Retro-#25 2002 Terrell Owens WR San Francisco 49ers T.O. was great for a long time in 2002 he caught 100 balls for 1,300 yards and 13 touchdowns. He was a true head case and a player I stayed away from, but of course this isn’t always the best advice in fantasy football.

Looking Ahead-#25

ESPN-Julio Jones-WR Atlanta Falcons Jones is entering his 3rd NFL season which is the typical breakout season for wide receivers. Jones is already very good so seeing what his third season brings should be pretty special!

CBS-Demaryius Thomas-WR Denver Broncos Thomas has had 1 great season with a great quarterback.  Thomas should have a second one would assume.  Thomas is a Top 5 receiver off the board in most fantasy drafts.
