Donnie Avery | WR

2011 Fantasy Football Outlook: It looked like Donnie Avery had turned the corner in the second half of 2009, when he took on more of a leadership role with the Rams. Unfortunately a torn ACL in August, ended his season and his opportunity to breakout with Sam Bradfordthrowing the football. It looks like Avery is progressing well from his knee surgery and figures to be the teams deep threat.

As we’ve seen from Brandon Lloyd and Randy Moss in Coach Josh McDaniels previous stints, the deep ball receiver can have some big numbers in his system. I’m not sure Avery will be up to providing that kind of production, but he does make for an interesting deep sleeper for this season. At best, Avery is only worth taking in twelve team leagues and deeper in the final rounds of your draft. Avery could amount to a decent receiver, but he will probably be a waiver wire pickup in many leagues throughout the season.

2010 Fantasy Football Outlook

2009 Fantasy Year In Review: Donnie Avery had a disappointing season in his second year as the Rams were by far the worst overall team in football. For Avery, he struggled with consistency and he was constantly dinged up throughout the season.

2010 NFL Fantasy Football Player Rankings: If Avery is going to be a relevant option in fantasy football this season, he will need his offensive line to play at a respectable level. If the quarterback doesn’t have time to throw the football than Avery won’t have a chance to be a consistent producer.

As long as Avery can come into the season healthy I do believe he is worth stashing on your roster as added depth. Last year Avery started to show more maturity and this offseason he has come into camp in great shape. Look for Avery as a decent option to use for bye week help on your team.
