#18-2012 Matt Schaub Schaub is a good not great fantasy quarterback because of one reason, Arian Foster. Foster is always given first crack at a touchdown run in the red zone because well he’s very effective.  Schaub doesn’t get the long TD passes to Andre Johnson anymore like he did five years ago, but he does get a lot of passing yards.  If you can grab him in the 5th round, that’s perfect!

Retro #18-2002 Kerry Collins-New York Giants- This would be his only 4,000 yard season of the 2000’s with a big drop off after it.  Collins struggled with the off field stuff, but when he was focused was a highly effective passer early on and very late in his NFL career.  A lot of good years wasted though with Collins

Looking Ahead

ESPN-A.J.Green-WR Cincinnati Bengals-Green returned to practice this week after sitting out for a couple of weeks, but it looks like there will be no complications for him to start against the Bears opening day.  Green is entering his third season so look out!

CBS-Drew Brees-QB New Orleans Saints- If you pick Brees up in the 2nd round of your draft this weekend or next weekend it is a major league gift!
