Name Pos Team Age Yrs
Exp.
Pos. Rank
Tom Brady QB NE 37 14 QB - #12
With a revolving door of receivers going in and out of the lineup, Tom Brady was forced to make the best of it last season. While the Pats won 12 games, his numbers did drop (especially his touchdown passes). Brady finished 2013 with 4,343 passing yards, but was only able to throw 25 TDs -- his lowest total in a full season since 2006. Despite not having his best s... Read More
Nick Foles QB PHI 25 2 QB - #9
The Eagles have one of the better fantasy schedules for QBs (Weeks 1-16), with just three games against defenses that defended the pass well (SF - Week 4, CAR - Week 10, SEA - Week 14) and six favorable matchups. As an added bonus, the Eagles boast one of the best O-lines in the league with an elite left side of Pro Bowlers (Jason Peters and Evan Mathis). In his s... Read More
Colin Kaepernick QB SF 26 3 QB - #13
DON'T CALL IT A COMEBACK: Kaepernick's first full season as a starter was a little disappointing. He did break the 300-point barrier, but many envisioned much more. His completion percentage dropped from 62.4- to 58.4-percent. His yards per attempt dropped from 8.3 to 7.7. His rushing touchdowns dropped from five to four despite playing more games.... Read More
Cam Newton QB CAR 25 3 QB - #10
Cam Newton is coming back from offseason ankle surgery and he is expected to be 100-percent by late June to early July. The ankle should have no effect on his play. A lot has been made of Newton's receiving corps (or lack thereof). They are really not that bad and he has a few of veterans who know how to get open. Cotchery, Underwood, and Avant have all performed v... Read More
Philip Rivers QB SD 32 10 QB - #16
Philip Rivers was last season's Comeback Player of the Year as named by the Associated Press. His turnaround was assisted by new head coach Mike McCoy and the pair should fare well into the future. Rivers is a reliable option who rebounded statistically after what appeared to be a gradual decline. In 2013, he threw for nearly 4,500 yards with 32 TDs and 11 INTs. Th... Read More
Matt Ryan QB ATL 29 6 QB - #7
BOUNCE-BACK: Matt Ryan was viewed as a bit of a letdown in 2013. Coming off career highs in passing yards and touchdowns in 2012, everyone and their brother had Ryan projected to be one of the elite QBs. He passed for 200 fewer yards, six fewer touchdowns and threw three more interceptions. We're optimists here, and we have Ryan ranked as the No.... Read More
Russell Wilson QB SEA 25 2 QB - #11
Russell Wilson enters his third year in 2014. He scored 323 fantasy points in each of his first two seasons. In those years, Seattle has run the ball more than they've thrown the ball. In part, this is because Wilson is also an effective scrambler in his own right. In 2012, Seattle threw the ball 43-percent of the time and in 2013 they threw the ball 46-percent of ... Read More
