Fantasy Football Third Year Wide Receivers
Fantasy Football Information on Selected 3rd Year Receivers
Lions: Fantasy Football Info for Calvin Johnson
Many wide receivers disappointed last year in a down year for passing but Calvin Johnson made fantasy football owners smile all year. If you look at the receiver list for fantasy football this year it is probably one of the worst years I can remember. But Megatron is one receiver that is truly more than meets the eye.
Even though Calvin is on the Lions he is still the most explosive wide outs in fantasy football hands down. I’ve seen things go south for Randy Moss and Terrell Owens on bad teams and they fold up shop, but not this kid. He had a break out season in year two.
Look for Johnson to be the bright star again for Detroit this year.As far as wear to draft Calvin? I want you to take that image in your mind of his team being bad and throw it out the window. Then select Johnson as your second overall pick in your fantasy football draft.
Colts: Fantasy Football Info for Anthony Gonzalez
Anthony Gonzalez should breakout for a big year with the Colts as he takes over the starting role opposite Reggie Wayne. This team needs a pick me up after losing Marvin Harrison, Tony Dungy and their offensive line coach and offensive coordinator. This should be a season we see Gonzalez go for around 1,200 yards and 8 touchdowns.
Anthony has very good value coming into fantasy football drafts this year. Gonzalez as a fine No.3 receiver for your fantasy football team this year.
Cardinals: Fantasy Football Info for Steve Breaston
Look for Steve Breaston to post around 60 catches for about 850 yards and 3 touchdowns this year for the Cardinals. If you get points for special team touchdowns Steve is also capable of scoring for you in the put game as well. He will be a very helpful player for his team and for Kurt Warner’s fantasy stats, but he’s just not worthy of a starting spot on your fantasy team.
Right now I would suggest stashing Breaston away as a cheep pick at the end of your fantasy football draft. If you own Anquan Bolden, then Breston would make sense to won because if Anquan goes down then Breaston will start.
Saints: Fantasy Football Info for Robert Meachem
So far Robert Meachem has been a disappointment since being drafted as the Saints No.1 pick in 2007. But last year when Robert was on the field he did show us he can be an explosive force when given a chance.
At this point in time the reports out of New Orleans is that Robert is looking very good in camp so far. While he may be stuck as fourth on the depth chart now I do believe he will pass Devery Henderson and maybe be for the season begins.
For the time being Robert is not a player you should select at your fantasy football draft. But if Marques Colston or Lance Moore should have injury problems then Robert would make for a very attractive waiver pickup.
Jaguars: Fantasy Football Info for Mike Walker
Mike Walker is a name that most people have probably never heard of, but this kid has very good skills. He proved this when in week five of last year he posted six catches for 107 yards (17.8 yards per catch average) against the Steelers.
But for all of Walkers talent he has been troubled with knee problems for the past three seasons. At this point in time he looks healthy in camp and is projected to be the starting No.2 receiver along side Torry Holt.
With Holt on the opposite side and the Jaguars improved offensive line, look for Mike to see many opportunity’s with one on one coverage. He has the size (6’2 208 pounds) and speed to succeed both down the field and inside the red zone.
Unless Mike has a terrific pre-season he is no more then a waiver pickup at this point. No doubt this is a player you should keep an eye on as the season progresses.
