Breath it in

Good, not the best, guys to draft from each NFL team pt. 3

Cleveland Browns

Jerome Harrison flirted with his first 1000 yard season coming up just short of 9oo yards.  He has the speed and agility to make a big play at any moment but it does seem that he needs those big plays to get a majority of his yards and scores. He could get you a just a couple points one week and then threaten to lead RBs in points the next week.  Those big weeks will be there the tough part is selecting which weeks those will be.

St. Louis Rams

Donnie Avery is in his third season and that tends to be the breakout season for Wide Receivers (of they are any good anyway).  Donnie has gone up slightly in his first two seasons in both receptions and yards and hopes to continue that trend this season.  With top overall pick Sam Bradford in town, he has got to throw to someone right?  Torry Holt and Isaac Bruce are long gone so Donnie, by default, has to make some plays.  Bradford has a great arm and hes gonna test from time to time.

Dallas Cowboys

Marion Barber was everyones pick to break into the top 4 or 5 running backs in the NFL when Julius Jones left and Barber would be THE guy for the cowboys.  His fantasy value actually fell off when he was the main guy.  Now that Felix Jones appears to be the feature guy in Dallas, Barber’s value should rise again with loading up on TDs and get a lot of late game carries when he is fresh.

Pittsburgh Steelers

Every season Hines Ward gets overlooked.  Hes not flashy, hes not big, hes not super fast.  But he just gets it done.  Few of you reading this (including myself) would realize that Ward caught 96 passes last season for over 1,100 yards and 6 TDs.  Please don’t overlook this guy again.

Denver Broncos

Dez Bryant is getting all the headlines and pub coming into this season but Demaryius Thomas in some scouts eyes was higher on their board then the high profile rookie out of OK state.  Denver’s clear cut number one WR (Marshall) is now in Miami so you know Denver has to have confidence in the Georgia Tech standout Thomas to get rid of a young great WR.

Philadelphia Eagles

Jeremy Maclin was looked at as a product of the college game when he was an absolute stud at Missouri.  He proved his critics wrong last season with the Eagles.  In just his first season Maclin went for 55 rec, 762 yds, and 4 TDs.  Andy Reid loves to throw the ball and the Eagles running game is not like it was with Westbrook.  Maclin should only improve upon those numbers and may score more fantasy points then teammate DeSean Jackson who will be selected many rounds ahead of this sleeping Eagle.

Detroit Lions

Matthew Stafford, barrying injury, will play his first full 16 game season this year.  in just 10 games last year he threw for over 2,000 yards and 13 TDs.  Simple projection has a full season at about 3,700 yards and 23 TDs.  Not a bad season.  The Lions may not win too many games again, and again, and again.  But their QB may win you some fantasy games as you spend your early round picks getting top ranked RBs and WRs and take a late round pick on Stafford.
