Fantasy Thoughts continued

A couple more things Ive been thinking of regarding next year's fantasy football season
Jermichael Finley is going to be a beast. Outside of Gates, Witten, and Clark, I'm not sure there is another Tight End I would draft in front of him.

Shonn Green is the future. If the Jets retain Thomas Jones, it will only be in a back up role, Green will get the majority of the carries for this run happy team; also as Mark Sanchez learns to pass more effectively, the run will come even easier.

Its Felix you want in Dallas. Its been a tough year for owners of Dallas running backs as they shuffle them through. I believe next year will be a lot better as far as that goes as Felix Jones separates himself from the pack. Thoughts of Marion Barber being an elite back are just absurd. Felix Jones is more well rounded as a back and has home run potential every time he touches the ball. He isn't a first round worthy back because of the potential time share but he is the best of the time share backs as of right now.

Beanie Wells is for real. This is a guy i really like going into next year as a potential break out candidate. He can run and catch and if he learns to pass block he will be a star.

Miles Austin is the real deal. Treat him as a number one receiver. Second round consideration.

Packers defense will be in demand next fall. They are young, fast, and talented. Grab them and don't worry about it.

More Fantasy Thoughts

So remember when DeAngelo Williams was the back you wanted from the Carolina backfield? Yeah those days are over. Stewart is not just good; he's great. With two backs and holes everywhere else, it makes sense for the Panthers to deal one. Either way, Stewart is a first rounder next year and DeAngelo could have value depending on where he ends up.
Jeremy Maclin could be next years DeSean Jackson. They are similar and neither are slowing down.
Justin Forsett was a midseason sleeper for next year with a string of big games. He is not anything special however moving forward, dont value him more that a straight time share back.
What to make of the Houston backfield? Foster? Slaton? Chris Breezy? My thinking here is if you can grab Foster late go for it, if not dont bother with any of them as they prefer to throw anyway.
San Francisco is going to be a more balanced team next year. They cant go from grind it out to air it out back to grind it out again. I think SF is a team on the rise and I really like everyone; especially Gore, Morgan, Crabtree, VD, and Alex Smith
Julian Edelman the next Wes Welker, maybe better, the problem is that he is on the same team as the first one, limiting his value. If he is moved, he has tremendous value.
I like Jabar Gaffney. Everyone is dismissing his performance as garbage numbers put up when Marshall was out. Well guess what, Marshall is not coming back to Denver; Gaffney will play all season without him. He showed he could be a number one in his absence, definitely a sleeper choice that could be a boom pick.

Fantasy Thoughts

Some early thoughts for 2010.
Devin Armashodu is going to be a 2010 stud. I look for him to have number one receiver value as he and Cutler continue to build chemistry.
Speaking of the bears,I really think Forte is going to bounce back next year. He got over 69 rushing yards in 4 of the last 5 and with an improved offense next year, he will start hitting paydirt more.
Michael Crabtree is going to be a beast next year.
Andre Johnson will not. He finished this year poorly and will be over valued next year. I look for Fitz and Roddy White to be the top WR's next year.
Guys coming off of injury are going to be the thing next year. There are some you want; Turner, Owen Daniels, and Brady Quinn and some you dont; Ronnie Brown, Kevin Smith, Steve Slaton.
Apparently the Browns can run the football. This makes Jerome Harrison a top pick in the fall and gives more value to BQ, Mo Massaqoui, and Chansi Stuckey as a stronger rushing game helps out your passing game.
Lastly, Jamaal Charles is for real, the late season burst he has exhibited is impressive. He has not disappointed since he got the job, I dont think he will next year either.
Ok thats all for now, more later.
