Congratulations are in order to some of you, to others.... better luck next year. To those in leagues still running, in either regular or post season, we bring you our last regular season look at fantasy football targets. I am torn with the question of how much to spend on receivers in my draft or auction. While watching Calvin Johnson, A.J. Green, Brandon Marshall and the other studs, part of me wants to allocate enough funds to get a pair of my own in 2013. The other part of me recognizes that James Jones was a major part of my first place finish this season,. Last month I even dropped Jones when he disappeared, only to pick him up again the following week.
Can you believe we have reached the midway point? A.J. Green and Andre Johnson were the big dogs off in week eight, along with less consistent talent like Torrey Smith and Steve Johnson. Wes Welker is the main target that will be getting a rest this weekend, along with the emerging Jeremy Kerley and marginal fantasy stock like Michael Crabtree and Brandon Gibson. The early game this week comes is a AFC West clash between San Diego and Kansas City.
Amazing that we are already approaching the midway point of the 2012 season. Did you survive the biggest bye week of the season? Julio Jones, Roddy White, Demaryius Thomas, Eric Decker, Dwayne Bowe, DeSean Jackson, Jeremy Maclin and Malcom Floyd among those on the sideline during week seven. This week, Torrey Smith, A.J. Green and Andre and Steve Johnson get a break. If you're like me, you are still getting used to a Thursday night game every week with Tampa Bay and Minnesota kicking off week eight.
