2013 Fantasy Football Studs
Stud: A NFL player who has proved himself to be a top scoring player at his position. These players should be started each week regardless of match-up and should only be benched during bye weeks and significant injuries. From our Fantasy Football Dictionary
Our writers have classified the following players as studs for 2013. We will be updating this list throughout the pre-season.
|Vernon Davis||TE||SF||30||7||TE - #6|
|Vernon Davis finished a rough season on a high note, totalling 11 catches and 210 yards during the conference finals and Super Bowl. Prior to that he had endured an atrocious seven game stretch during which he caught only seven passes while being held scoreless. Davis stands to benefit from Michael Crabtree's absence, but will need to build on that playoff chemistr... Read More|
|How about one for the road? Tony Gonzalez is back again and really, he played too well to retire in 2012. The Falcons were very close to reaching the Super Bowl and expectations are championship-caliber once again. Gonzalez may not be much of an after-the-catch threat with the ball in his hands, but he certainly sees plenty of targets and receptions. Gonzo is a sur... Read More|
|Jimmy Graham||TE||NO||27||3||TE - #1|
|Despite a dip in receptions, yards, and touchdowns in 2012, Jimmy Graham will enter the 2013 fantasy season as the top tight end of the draft Graham is a physical freak and if he comes into the year fully healthy, should improve on his numbers from last season. Fantasy owners should have no reservations drafting Graham as the top tight end this season and in PPR l... Read More|
|Rob Gronkowski||TE||NE||25||3||TE - #3|
|Update October 25, 2013 - Gronk dinally made his long awaited return and while he didnt catch any touchdowns, he was still very effective.. He is now a must start every week
Update September 7, 2013 - While Gronk is making great progress, he will NOT play in week 1. It is possible he plays in week 2, but let us wait and see.
Update August 31, 2013... Read More
|Greg Olsen||TE||CAR||29||6||TE - #8|
|If you missed out on Jimmy Graham, it may be best to wait for Greg Olsen. The former Miami Hurricanes stud is essentially the No. 2 wide receiver in Charlotte. He should finish close behind Steve Smith in targets, receptions and most of the other receiving stats. A year ago he caught a career-high 69 receptions on 104 targets for 843 yards and five TDs. Assuming Ca... Read More|
|Jason Witten||TE||DAL||32||10||TE - #7|
|This just in: the fantasy tight end position is not a deep one this year - and that assessment initially came when we all believed New England had two strong options. Now, hmmm. There is the one true stud in Jimmy Graham, but then lots of uncertainty even those options boasting considerable potential. There is no doubt what Witten provides; last season he hauled in...
