#10-2012 Andrew Luck QB Indianapolis Colts- After taking one for the franchise in the 2011 season, The Colts minus Peyton Manning picked up the #1 pick and were able to replace one franchise QB with another younger model.  Luck’s rookie season was even better than Manning’s throwing for 4,300 yards 23 touchdowns and 16 interceptions.  The sky seems to be the limit for Luck in real and fantasy football in the very near future.

Retro #10-2002 Ricky Williams RB Miami Dolphins Williams had a wild strange career, but his 2002 season was his greatest in the NFL rushing for over 1,800 yards while picking up 16 rushing Td’s and 3 receiving TD’s.  Williams only had one more very good season before taking his sabbatical.

Looking Ahead

ESPN-LeSean McCoy-RB Philadelphia Eagles  Chip Kelly’s offense is a running offense so McCoy should be fantasy gold this season if he stays healthy.  He’s gone very early in the first round in most real and mock drafts.

CBS-Alfred Morris RB Washington Redskins Morris was a breakthrough star that very few had selected before the 2012 season.  The question is will he be great for a career or will he vanish like many Redskins running backs have in the past.
