And so it begins. One of the most anticipated moments each and every year is sitting across the table staring us right in the face. The stiff arms, high stepping, and touchdown celebrations are about to become a reality and fans could not be happier. Life changes every day, but one thing is for sure and that is NFL football. The allure of the game is so much stronger than any other sport in the market today and the fan base seems to grow each and every year.
Fans are always looking for ways to become more engrossed in the game that they love and fantasy football is the absolute best tool out there to accomplish that. We here at tradefantasyfootball.com aim to help everyone from the green beginner to the seasoned expert achieve fantasy dominance in all formats you managers may be involved in. As with anything in life a little luck goes a long way, but making calculated decisions based on stats and trends helps managers make trades, cuts, free agent pickups that will limit the negative outcomes and increase your odds of excellence.
Any way now it’s time to get down to business. Over the upcoming season I will be giving weekly insight into the prospective boom type players, ones in which they have the potential to benefit your fantasy team, and busts, players that might not live up to expectations or flat out negatively impact your team.
1. Josh Gordon, Cleveland Brown’s Wide Receiver– Yes he has a two game suspension to start off the upcoming season
but if you were able to grab him any time after the 10th round your gamble with certainly payoff sooner rather than later.
With so much focus onTrent Richardson coming into the season Gordon will flash his speed and beat defenses deep when they key on Cleveland’s starting running back. If you have the opportunity to grab him on the cheap from a manager not willing to wait I suggest you make the move to grab Josh Gordon now before his stock rises in week three.
2. Ryan Broyles, Detroit Lions Wide Receiver – I’m going to stick in the Wide Receiver department for my second prediction for the season. Ryan Broyles is a very talented Wide Receiver out of Oklahoma that had his season cut short due to injuries in 2012. In his limited action during the 2012 Ryan Broyles flashed plenty of his ability on the football field. With Calvin Johnson and to a lesser extent Reggie Bush drawing so much attention from opposing teams defenses Broyles should see plenty of one on one coverage this season. For a player that holds the college football record for career receptions at 349 this is a dream. Also, Ryan Broyles plays for an offense that is the most pass happy in the league so there will be plenty of targets to
go around. Don’t go overboard, but invest in him if you get the chance.
3. Ryan Mathews, San Diego Chargers Running Back– For a player that at times showed the ability to run all over the field Ryan Mathews just does not seem like he can keep it together. His potential for injury in each and every game just does not seem to warrant his current going price of the 4th or 5th round is just too risky of an investment for me. That is where the heart of your team is coming from and consistency is major need there. Until the San Diego Chargers can show improvement as a team on offense in 2013 I see many tough yards ahead for Ryan Mathews.
4. Russell Wilson, Seattle Seahawks Quarterback – The 2013 season was looking up for Russell Wilson with the addition of the exceptional playmaker Percy Harvin in free agency. Well as most of you know Harvin is now out until at least week 13 and Wilson’s next in line cannot fill that gap that was left behind. The Seahawk likes to run the ball a lot and if they are controlling the game I would expect Marshawn Lynch and his abusing talents will remain the focus of the offense. There is no doubt he is a talented player with a bright future with the Seattle Seahawks, but until he has the weapons that will go out and get the ball for him he should be considered a prisoner of the teams system.
