Why NFL Fantasy Guide?

WE ARE SORRY: Due to the overwhelming time it takes to keep up with Fantasy Stats, I am no longer creating up to date draft lists and such on this blog.

However, I would like to remind you that the articles are for the most part still good advice to keep to heart when playing Fantasy Football.

NFL Fantasy Guide

Often in the preseason, there are questions about players. Injuries, position battles and anything that might effect the Fantasy Football Player Rankings. Here I will address some of them.

New Orleans Saints Fantasy Players

Quarterback - Drew Brees - (Position Rank - 2)
(Passing) 4,500 Yards, 30 TD, 17 IT, 14 Sacks
(Rushing) 25 Yards, 0 TD, 3 Fumbles
For 6 straight years Brees has improved his numbers. It is hard to believe he will improve over 5,069 yards and 34 TDs. I would expect a small drop back to reality. The only reason Brees is not the #1 quarterback is that he does not scramble for many yards. That is a minor flaw but one that knocks him down to #2.

Running Back - Pierre Thomas - (Position Rank - 14)
(Rushing) 850 Yards, 11 TD, 1 Fumbles
(Receiving) 40 Catches, 350 Yards, 4 TD
With Duece McCallister gone, Pierre Thomas takes his place. Thomas should get the majority of the carries and most of the scoring plays. He will also get his share of receptions as well. If Bush cant learn to stay healthy, Thomas becomes much more valuable.

Running Back - Reggie Bush - (Position Rank - 26)
(Rushing) 570 Yards, 6 TD, 3 Fumbles
(Receiving) 60 Catches, 450 Yards, 4 TD
Bush always seems to be suffering some small ailments. His truest fantasy purpose seems to be to make sure the Saints use a RB by Committee. Still, he is worth a late round pick in hopes he stays healthy and produces.

Wide Receiver - Marques Colston - (Position Rank - 11)
(Receiving) 85 Catches, 1,100 Yards, 9 TD, 1 Fumble
If the Saints were so pass happy with their running backs, Colston might be a top 5 receiver. Even so, he has consistently put in over 1K yards and around 10 TD's. Except for last year with his injury. He is healthy and should bounce back nicely.

Wide Receiver - Devery Henderson - (Position Rank - 63)
(Receiving) 55 Catches, 600 Yards, 5 TD, 1 Fumbles
Henderson is the speedster you just throw the ball up to and let him go get it. If Pierre Thomas runs well enough, Brees may find Henderson open a little more often.

Wide Receiver - Lance Moore - (Position Rank - 43)
(Receiving) 40 Catches, 850 Yards, 5 TD, 0 Fumbles
With Hendersons speed, Moore finds himself covered by linebackers quite often. A miss-match that Brees cannot ignore.

Tight End - Jeremy Shockey - (Position Rank - 20)
(Receiving) 55 Catches, 550 Yards, 3 TD, 1 Fumbles
One of the more talented Tight Ends in the NFL, Shockey is either hurt too often or just not apart of the scheme enough. It is hard for any quarterback to look for a TE when he consistently has open receivers or open running backs to throw the ball to.
