With the season over for a majority of people, we decided to look back and construct another team based on how the year went.
This team is made up of studs with ADP of 100 or greater. Without further delay, let’s meet the team.
QB – Andrew Luck (ADP 109) Luck made a huge splash this season as a rookie, leading the Colts to a 10-5 record and a playoff berth. Luck has thrown for 4,183 yards and 21 touchdowns and added 254 yards and five more rushing touchdowns as well. Yes, the 28 turnovers (18 INT, 10 fumbles) are concerning but Luck made himself relevant in fantasy, even as a rookie.
RB – Mikel LeShoure (ADP 132) LeShoure missed the first two games of the year with a disciplinary issue for marijuana. Since then, he came back in and set himself up as the lead back in Detroit. With Jahvid Best sitting out the entire season as a result of concussions, LeShoure took the reins and ran with it. He ran to the tune of 741 yards and nine touchdowns while adding 194 more yards on 31 receptions.
RB – Alfred Morris (ADP: undrafted) All Morris did as a rookie was rush for 1413 yards and 10 touchdowns through week 15. That’s the fourth best total in the league and he would be challenging for a rushing championship if not for Adrian Peterson’s jaw-dropping season. Not bad for a guy who drives a 1991 Mazda and fell through almost everyone’s hands on draft day.
WR – Mike Williams (ADP 129) Williams posted a strong season opposite Vincent Jackson in Tampa. With Josh Freeman coming back into form, Williams picked up 931 yards and 8 touchdowns so far this season. Williams should see his ADP rise after his results this season.
WR – Randall Cobb (ADP 144) This Packer took advantage of injuries to Greg Jennings and Jordy Nelson to post an 80-954-8 line this season. Add to that his value as a kick returner and Cobb will not fall that far in drafts in 2013.
WR – Cecil Shorts (ADP undrafted) Shorts became the reciever in Jacksonville that everyone thought Justin Blackmon would be this season. Shorts won’t wow you in PPR with 55 catches but his 979 yards and 7 touchdowns made him a great value. Shorts is on IR now but it was fun while it lasted.
TE – Greg Olsen (ADP 135) The tight end from Carolina had a nice season despite the Panthers’ floundering offense. His line of 65-800-5 was solid but not spectacular. If you missed out on Gronk or Graham, Olsen was able to help out and do okay in the alleged year of the tight end.
K - It’s a kicker…they all have low ADPs. Pick one.
DEF - With the exception of the 49ers, pick one. All of the defenses have ADPs above 100.
All things considered, this would have been a team that was exciting to watch and likely in a game every week. Maybe it finished around .500 and was on the cusp of missing the playoffs but almost no one would have seen it coming.
