Spotlight Player of the Day -

8/23 - Mike Sims-Walker -
  • Even though he has never played a full 16 game season, MSW has put up back to back 7 TD seasons, with David Garrard throwing him the football.  It is safe to say that Sam Bradford is better than David Garrard.  While not so much of a deep threat(only 11 catches for 20+ yards) MSW is a consistant player, when healthy, who at 6'2 gives Bradford an easy target to throw at.  With no red zone target at the TE position, MSW could see a lot of those coming his way.
8/16 - James Jones -
  • With back to back 5 TD seasons, Jones proves that even in a deep receiving core, he can still help your fantasy team.  Jones marked career highs last season in receptions(50) and yards(679), and you can expect at least that again this season.  Since 2006, veteran Donald Driver has gone from 92 receptions to just 51 last season.  Obviously, Aaron Rodgers is becoming more and more comfortable throwing to Jones and Jordy Nelson and you can expect that trend to continue this season.  Jones is a valuable #3 receiver on your roster.

8/10 - Lance Moore -
  • Moore caught 6+ passes 5 times last season but only broke 100 yards once.  Moore is an all or nothing player who is worth the risk.  He was targeted 20 times in the Red Zone last season which led to 8 TDs.  As a WR3, Moore has a lot of value. 
Sleepers

Julio Jones -
  • The Falcons traded up to get Jones because they want him to be a MAJOR part of the offense.  And with most teams being forced to double up on Roddy White, and figuring out how to cover Tony Gonzalez, while containing Michael Turner, Jones could see a lot of big plays come his way with one on one coverage.
Steve Breaston -
  • Signing in Kansas City was a great move by Breaston.  He still is lining up opposite elite WR talent in Dwayne Bowe, and has the luxury of Jamaal Charles and Thomas Jones being the focal point of the opposing defense.  Cassel has proven to be an reliable NFL QB and Breaston should see a lot of targets and do well in PPR leagues.
