Guys that might fall under the Austin/Lloyd "out of nowhere" zone...
I'm actually wondering if it could be Greg Little. Or maybe next year. McCoy isn't horrible. If there's something there, it could get interesting. Since my home team can't get it's management act together, I'm basically a fan of the underdog... which is the only reason I don't hate the Lions this year.
The Ryan Grant equivalent is not as easy, because so many teams are so heavy on the time-share, and it looks like it will only get worse over the next few years...
Ryan Matthews looks to maybe be the guy who people thought he might be at draft time. But that's more like a comeback story than a "who the heck is this guy" situation. And it's more of the expectation level you would have from a Julio Jones or an AJ Green.
Looking down the list of RBs, I don't see anyone who has that Sudden Ryan Grant possibility, apart from Sproles, who isn't going to quite be "that" except in PPR, and MAYBE Jackie Battle, as the injury that gave him his chance, has given him his chance. Otherwise, right now we're all waiting on injuries and suspensions to give backups that chance.
For QB, Fitzpatrick was a good call. I would have never bet he would be in the top 10, or that he'd be ahead of Rivers, Schaub, Ben Roflcopter, Ryan and Romo. Cam Newton may be "the guy," as yes, everyone knew who he was, but NO WAY did anyone think he would be a consistent fantasy performer. What I wonder about with him, is how he'll age. But right now, only Brady and Rodgers are ahead of him.
When I look at that list or WR's I see Victor Cruz and then a bunch of guys below him. Moore has talent, but no QB. Decker was going good now hes likely to be a nobody for the rest of the year while Denver turns into an all rushing team. T Smith needs to prove he was not a flash in the pan.
All im saying is that Cruz is in the best position, and has proven it on multiple weeks now. Time will tell. I know Im glad hes on my team though.
