2012 Rookie QB’s You Should Pick Up
It’s fantasy draft season again, & your roster probably isn’t shaping up the way that you thought it would. Rodgers and Brees flew off the board, with Tom Brady next. Good quarterbacks are few and far fetched, so what are you going to do once the greats are off the board?? For those who missed out on the gravy train, Puerto Rican Beef says don’t sleep on the following 5 Rookie quarterbacks:
**Top Rookie QB** – Andrew Luck, Indianapolis Colts: Last year every bad team wanted to “Suck for Luck”, and this year, the Colts may very well “Suck with Luck”. This won’t be because Luck isn’t talented, however. Luck is a fantasy football dynasty dream player. He has shown in his first two starts that he possesses the skills and determination to make the Colts better. For those who have drafted him he will not produce big numbers this year, but he will definitely continue to get better and turn into a fantasy football point’s producer in the years to come. Don’t sleep on Luck!
**Star Potential** – Robert Griffin III: Ok so maybe this guy didn’t get drafted into the right program in Washington…..or did he? RG3 is a shoe in to be the starting Quarterback for the Redskins for years to come. The Skins haven’t had a Quarterback this good for years. RG3’s accuracy and quickness will benefit him in Washington, and so will having Rex Grossman on the depth chart (God why is he still playing?). Look for RG3 to be one of those franchise Qb’s that will start off slow, but progress as the year goes on.
** Bye Week Candidate** – Brandon Weeden: Rarely do I feel bad for an NFL player. I mean they make tons of money for catching or throwing a ball. Pretty simple right?? I do, however, genuinely feel bad for this guy. Being on the Cleveland Browns is the equivalent to purgatory, and this poor guys stats will be suffering all year long. He is still a solid quarterback and will post numbers. He is a great addition to your bench, but should stay there until next season. Don’t expect big numbers from him this year.
**Sleeper** – Ryan Tannehill: An injury to David Garrard, and sub-par play by Matt Moore have thrust Ryan Tannehill into the starting quarterback spot for the season opener. Tannehill is going to do well in Miami, but definitely not immediately. He has no real talent on the receiver corp and that will affect him. I think that by week 5 he will be on the bench again, but this guy is definitely a keeper for years to come.
**Long-Shot** – Kirk Cousins: This guy needs to thank the man who kept Rex Grossman on the Redskins roster. He also needs to ask that man to toss a television at RG3 and pray that it injures his knee. Otherwise, Kirk will see more bench time than Pam Anderson in high school. He is a talented QB, but might not show it until either RG3 gets hurt or he gets traded to another team. Let’s see which one happens first……
