2013 “Too Early” Fantasy Football Rankings

Posted By Logan Williams On Jan 22 2013 @ 11:05 am In Fantasy Football | 2 Comments

Quarterbacks

1)      Drew Brees

Brees at number 1? Well last season
Brees was nothing short of spectacular from a fantasy perspective and that was
in a down season. With Sean Payton back next season I believe him and Brees
will be out on a mission to prove their dominance and show that Brees is the
premier passer in the NFL. Brees will have a presumably healthy Jimmy Graham
next season which will help because Graham had a few drop issues this season
and since the Saints lack a dominant run game to control the clock the intermediate
passing game serves as an extension of the run game for them.

 

2)      Aaron Rodgers

Rodgers is arguably the best all around
QB in the league but his offensive line and lack of a run game limited him at
times this year because it is hard to put up big numbers from your back. I look
for the Packers to upgrade their offensive line and I like DaJuan Harris as a
running back to establish a run game so these two adjustments will help Rodgers
move back to the top of fantasy leagues as far as production.

 

3)      Tom Brady

Mr. Brady seems to be consistent
year in and year out as well as week in and week out, if he gets Welker back
next year and Gronkowski can stay healthy the whole year Brady is capable to
put up bigger numbers than this season. The Patriots found the run game this
season and that makes them more dangerous with play action pass and not being
able to focus as much on Brady and the pass game.

 

4)       Peyton Manning

Peyton came back from four neck
surgeries and didn’t skip a beat with a new team and a new offense. Manning did
not put up prolific numbers from a fantasy perspective but in his second year
in Denver I see Manning taking a step forward and building on his first season
as a Bronco.

 

5)      Cam Newton

Newton started off his sophomore
campaign in a bit of a slump but over the last half of the season he could be
considered one of the best fantasy players at any position when the Panthers seemed
to rediscover the run game and Newton limited his turnovers in the pass game.

6)      Matt Ryan

7)      Matthew Stafford

8)      Robert Griffin III (Don’t think he will be ready to go week 1)

9)      Tony Romo

10)  Colin Kaepernick

11)  Andrew Luck

12)  Russell Wilson

13)  Ben Roethlisberger

14)  Joe Flacco

Running
Backs

1)      Adrian Peterson

Is this guy human? What a campaign
All Day had coming off of major knee surgery falling just 9 yards short of the
NFL singles season rushing yards record, this guy was nothing short of
phenomenal and he should be the consensus number one pick in fantasy leagues in
2013.
