Love/Hate Fantasy Football 2011

Welcome to a brand new edition of Fantasy Football for the 2011-2012 season.   I will list a couple of players I think will help you in your league and some you should stay away from in your drafts. Love and Hate Fantasy Football.

Larry Fitzgerald (ARI)- I Love him this year.  He will end up top 3 Wr this year. Now that Kevin Kolb is a Cardinal, Fitz is bound to break out again just like he was with Kurt Warner.  He is in his prime, so I suggest taking him quick off your draft boards before anyone else does, cause he is going to be a top fantasy player this year. Prediction: He will lead the league in receptions and targets, will have 10+ Td's and 1000 + yards.

Josh Freeman (TB)- Ended up 7th among Qbs in the NFL last year in his 2nd year.  He is on a very young and explosive offense that is over looked by a lot of people.  He could of ended up in the top 5 last year, he was 2nd among Qbs in rushing yards, but didn’t get enough touchdowns.  So I expect him to rush for more yards and TD’s. He’s got a great receiving core and will be a great late round pick for your QB slot.

LeGarret Blount (TB)- Also another key part of the Tampa bay Offense, Blount showed owners why they can trust him last season.  6’ foot 247 pound Tail Back and only 24, played only 13 games (started 11) and rushed for 1,007 yards with 6 Tds.  He led the NFL with the most broken tackles and it showed up in this stats.  Now the starting Back for Tampa and getting all the carries, I believe he will be close to top 10 talent and a No. 2 Rb on your Team, Trust me this guy is going to be good.

Jermichael Finley (GB)- I Love Jermichael this year and for years to come.  He isn't getting enough attention he deserves.  His season ended last year in the beginning with an injury.  He was having a break out season last year recording 2 100 + rec, yards in 4 games.   With Aaron Rodgers, Finely will become one of the Leagues best TEs.  Jermichael is the next Antonio Gates, Huge target, great hands, and runs good routes.  Watch out for him this year.

Mario Manningham (NYG)- Break out player this year.  Will be close to top 10 wide outs and will a No. 2 fantasy starter.  After the Giants offseason with many of their key offensive players gone such as Kevin Boss, and Steve smith, Eli Manning will throw to Mario a lot.  Manningham will be a huge part of the Big Blue’s offense and one of Eli’s Favorite targets along with Hakeem Nicks. I say 1,000+ receiving yards and 10 touchdowns.

Matt Forte (Bears)- Not a big fan of Forte and the Bears offense.  Each year I’m losing faith in Jay Cutler, who I Hate this year as well, which leads me to lose confidence in Forte.   Matt Forte probably will be a No. 2 back in fantasy this year, maybe even 3. He’s not that exciting and to me, doesn’t really have the talent to be a legit No. 1 Fantasy starter.   Also in the Offseason the Bears acquired Marion Barber, who might cut into Forte’s playing time.

Rashard Mendenhall-(Pit)- A little surprise here.  My reasoning:  Over the past couple years the Steelers have become more of a pass-happy offense with more talented receivers.  I think that Mendenhall will have a good season, with a good amount of Tds, but dont keep your expectations too high. He wont get 20 + carries every game, and to me like Forte, isn’t the most exciting running back.  Even last year only had 3 games with 100 + rushing yards.  I’m not saying don’t pick him, but I wouldn't advise taking him as your first pick.

Others- Jason Witten, DeAngelo Williams, Mariuce Jones - Drew

You say Fitzgerald is gonna be good this year with a brand new offense. Usually a brand new offense doesn't do so well its first year in trial.

And Mendenhall??????? 2nd in the league in rushing TD's last year. Within the 10 yard line you know who the Steelers are going to.
