Jimmy Graham. Got him in the 11th round of a 12 team draft, and he has been the one truly reliable receiver (TE or WR) on my roster full of boom-or-bust types like VJAX and A.Johnson.

Second the Beanie Wells shout out. I took him in round 7 hoping for backup production, and I start him every week. He's not likely to win your matchup for you, but he's reliable for 20 touches and at least 10 pts every week.

A Fleshner Fantasy wrote:My WR combo is Welker and Steve Smith, so that's pretty nice. Tony Gonzalez has also been very solid.

None of these 3 guys are really a surprise

Many of the pundits were down on Gonzalez pre-season, babbling on about how he couldn't seperate anymore. They were fools as usual. Gonzalez remains a stud.

Matt Forte and Beanie Wells.
Thought Matt Forte would be top 10 in a PPR league but never thought that he would be only 2 points behind Adrian Peterson.
Beanie Wells, although I missed his 3 TD game b/c I thought he would sit out, he has still been one of my best mid-late round pickups.

Have to go with Graham, Sproles, and the Lions D. Had high expectations for Graham, but no way could I envision him breaking out like he did. Sproles is doing what I thought he could, but never thought he would get as much opportunity as he has. And the Lions D has held its own most weeks.

I think, therefore I am. I think fantasy, therefore I am unreal?

John Kasay.

Wasn't even on an NFL roster when our fantasy draft was held. I didn't draft a kicker. Picked him up as a FA after Garrett Hartley went out.

Has been money every week, with the exception of the Rams blasting of the Saints, which no one saw coming.
