#17-2012 Sam Bradford-QB St.Louis Rams- It’s hard for me to believe that Bradford who seemingly can’t throw a ball further than 5 yards from scrimmage ended up with better stats than Jay Cutler but he did.  Bradford passed for over 3,700 yards with 21 TD’s and 13 INT’s.  Someone in his receiving crew will have to breakout for him to duplicate these numbers in 2013.

Retro #17-2002 Clinton Portis RB Washington Redskins- Portis rookie season was his best with over 1,500 yards rushing and 15 TD rushes. After this season he was fantasy football fools gold.  He never came close to matching these numbers after his second season, but he sure killed some teams running back position especially the later the 2,000’s got.

Looking Ahead-

ESPN-Frank Gore RB San Francisco 49ers Gore is at the tale end of his career,but he remains very consistent year in and year out! He’s a solid #2 fantasy running back option.

CBS-Aaron Rodgers-QB Green Bay Packers As stated in an earlier post, I believe he’s the best in the business, and like Brees if you get him the 2nd round its the steal of the century!
