Fantasy Football Analysis Draft - Round 13
Sidney Rice stole Berrian's thunder, and Percy Harvin put a fork in him. If (when) No. 4 returns, this offense could be just as explosive as it was last season. Berrian and Brett Favre took awhile to get on the same page. Berrian suffered through a nagging hamstring strain or ankle injury for pretty much all of 2009. His best game of the year came against the New Orleans Saints in the NFC Championship game (nine receptions, 109 yards), when he felt right. I can picture a scenario in which Sidney Rice (some pounding on that hip) or Percy Harvin (migraines) misses time, too.
Reason: For my No. 6, why not? He's still in competition for No. 2 work. Dez Bryant is a rookie, after all, and might not make the impact many are hoping for. An eight-touchdown, 700-yard season from Roy Dubs isn't hard to ask for in this offense. The contract year and his fall from grace should wake him up a bit.Anquan Boldin in the playoffs. Even without Boldin, Leinart still has three terrific receivers and two productive running backs at his disposal. And if he fails to deliver? It's not the end of the world for my team, since I have Philip Rivers. But if Leinart finally lives up to his first-round promise, I believe he will out produce the Kevin Kolbs and Chad Hennes of the world. His supporting cast is certainly good enough, as is the offensive system he plays in. Dom Capers and the Pack's D have shown that they are good at forcing turnovers - they led the league with 30 picks last year and returned three of them for scores. Their rush defense is also a strong point. The old secondary could be a concern, but Charles Woodson and Al Harris (knee) are two of the best at their position. The frozen tundra of Lambeau Field remains of the best homefield advantages in the NFL, and the Packers definitely know how to make use of it on defense. Dallas Clark has the week off or if he is injured.
Reason: I went with Manningham here because he should be a quality No. 3 receiver that could have a chance to compete for the No. 2 job during training camp. The Giants may pass a bit more this season if their running back is not able to improve some from last season.Chiefs offense should be improved overall this season. Cassel should have an improved offensive line and an effective running game to work with. The addition of wide receiver Dexter McCluster gives Cassel what should be a viable option in the slot. The hiring of Charlie Weis as offensive coordinator should also benefit Cassel, who is a decent backup with some upside.
Reason: New York plans to loosen the reins on quarterback Mark Sanchez, and he and Keller have been working together in the offseason to make sure they're on the same page. The Jets are also adding new plays to their offense to specifically exploit Keller's skills. His finish to '09 was only the beginning. He's a solid flex play or contingency plan should Chris Cooley not be able to return to form after last year's ankle injury.
