2013 Fantasy Football Solid/Safe Picks

Solid/Safe Pick: A player with good potential and low risk. Players in this category are statistically consistent from year to year. From our Fantasy Football Dictionary

We have classified the following players as Safe Picks for 2013. We will be updating this list throughout the pre-season.

Name Pos Team Age Yrs
Exp.
Pos. Rank
Tom Brady QB NE 36 13 QB - #5
Update 10-20-2013 - Tom Brady has had a slow start to the season, but look for his numbers to start to get back to normal, now that he is getting his receivers back

Update (8-14): Good news out of Patriots camp, at least based on initial fears: MRI on Tom Brady's left knee was negative and the quarterback is considered day to day, ESPN's Adam Schefter rep... Read More

Robert Griffin III QB WAS 24 1 QB - #10
Update (10-20): We can't say RG3 is all the way back, but he sure looks much closer to the breathtaking version we saw during his rookie campaign. Griffin confidently rushed for 84 yards on 11 carries in Washington's rallying 45-41 victory over the Bears in Week 7. As a passer, he completed 18 of 29 passes for 298 yards and two touchdowns. The buy-low window has no... Read More
Andrew Luck QB IND 24 1 QB - #7
Andrew Luck enters his second NFL season as a solid fantasy starting quarterback. Luck threw for more than 4300 yards and 23 touchdowns in his rookie season, and should continue to improve under Chuck Pagano. Luck should come off fantasy draft boards at around the number 10 quarterback, with the potential to move into the top 6 or 7 if he continues to progress. E... Read More
Eli Manning QB NYG 33 9 QB - #13
Update - 10-25-2013 -this has been by far the worst start to Eli Manning's career, that being said he is still passing for good yards and throwing touchdowns. Above average bye week starter or good fill in for injured QB's

Profile - After posting career numbers in 2011, Eli Manning's numbers took a hit across the board and the Giants also weren't as good... Read More

Tony Romo QB DAL 33 10 QB - #12
Romo threw for a career-high 4,903 yards with 28 touchdown passes last season, his top three pass catchers (including Dez Bryant) are all back - and his fantasy value dipped. What? That's what happens when three stud rookies and Colin Kaepernick entered the fantasy QB top 10 list since the start of last season without replacing one. Fine, Romo also threw 19 interce... Read More
Matthew Stafford QB DET 26 4 QB - #6
A career year in 2011 faded quickly into memory for Matthew Stafford. His touchdown totals dropped from 41 to 20 in 2012. Injuries to WR Nate Burleson and the unreliable WR Titus Young left few options for the Lions' passing attack. WR Calvin Johnson will keep Stafford's numbers from completely falling off the cliff though. Burleson is now back and the addition of ... Read More
Russell Wilson QB SEA 25 1 QB - #11
Seattle was cautious with their athletic rookie during the first half of last season, but opened up the playbook for him in the second half to devastating effect -- from weeks 13 to 17, Wilson was fantasy's top-scoring pivot. His impressive late-season progression points to a strong 2013 and makes Wilson a clear top-12 QB.
