Top 5 Overrated Fantasy Running Backs
Top 5 Fantasy Quarterbacks
Reigning league MVP and Super bowl loser Tom Brady, will play this season with a chip on his shoulder and pick up right where he left off last year. Another year with Randy Moss and Wes Welker should allow Brady to have another solid season. He won’t throw for 50 TDs again, but he might be somewhere in the 40’s. In any format best, Brady will be a top pick.
If there is one sure thing in the NFL it is that at the end of the season Manning will be a top 5 player in almost any fantasy league. The status of Marvin Harrison is uncertain for the upcoming season as he deals with a lingering knee injury and legal issues, this should not detract much from Manning’s on field performance. Colts receiver Anthony Gonzalez should step up and be the beneficiary of many of Peyton’s Passes.
3. Tony Romo
Entering another year as full time starter for the Cowboys, Romo is poised for an enormous statistical season. Dallas has a dynamic offense with no shortage of playmakers that will light up the scoreboard this year. It will not be a surprise if Romo ends up as the top fantasy QB this year. Do not hesitate to take this pivot with an early pick, you won’t regret it.
D.A. can thank Brady Quinn for holding out of training camp last year and allowing him to win the backup QB spot on the Browns. This set the stage for Anderson to surprise the NFL and almost lead the Browns to a playoff birth. He will have the benefit of throwing the ball to Braylon Edwards and Kellen Winslow once again, along with newly acquired deep threat Donte Stallworth. Anderson should have an excellent season on a much improved Cleveland team.
Coming off a less than solid year I expect Palmer to pull it together and put forth an excellent campaign. The fact that Palmer had an off year might be good as he could be available later than expected in most drafts. The Bengal’s have one of the best receiving cors in the entire league, with T.J. Housmandzadeh and Chad Johnson. They also have a bad defense which means they will be playing many games from behind, which in turn will mean more passes for Palmer and more points on the board.
Honorable Mention: Ben Roethlisberger, Matt Hasselbeck, Drew Brees
