There will be many more 2012 Fantasy Football Rankings and features in the late spring and summer, including tons of 2012 Fantasy Football Mock Drafts, Player Rankings, Sleepers and Busts. I'll also have an extensive 2012 NFL Fantasy Football Preseason Stock Report.
2012 Fantasy Football Stock Report: Quarterbacks
Sam Bradford, QB, Rams
The Rams missed out on Justin Blackmon, but they still spent two relatively early selections on receivers. Sam Bradford will be healthy again next year, and he'll also have Danny Amendola coming back from injury. He could be a solid QB2.
Ryan Fitzpatrick, QB, Bills
It's easy to forget that Ryan Fitzpatrick was a fantasy stud prior to suffering a severe rib injury in the middle of the 2011 season. He should function as a QB1 option again early in 2012 - and perhaps he'll be able to stay healthy all year because of the offensive line additions Buffalo made in April.
Jake Locker, QB, Titans
It'll be an upset if Jake Locker doesn't start in 2012. He has to love the Kendall Wright pick; the Baylor rookie will bolster an already-solid receiving corps comprised of Kenny Britt and Jared Cook. Factor in Locker's rushing ability, and the second-year signal-caller could be a borderline QB1 this season.
Andrew Luck, QB, Colts
I love what the Colts did in the 2012 NFL Draft. Unlike the Redskins, who foolishly drafted a second quarterback early, Indianapolis added weapons around Andrew Luck. Luck loved throwing to his tight ends at Stanford, so he has to be a fan of having Coby Fleener and Dwayne Allen at his disposal.
Peyton Manning, QB, Colts
With Peyton Manning's career winding down, you'd think John Elway would add talent around him for a Super Bowl push in the next 2-3 years. Instead, Elway continuously traded down and did nothing to improve their roster for the immediate future.
Ben Roethlisberger, QB, Steelers
Big Ben has to be thinking, "It's about time." The Steelers finally focused on the offensive line in the NFL Draft, spending their first two picks on guard David DeCastro and tackle Mike Adams. They should help keep Ben Roethlisberger upright.
A little late on this par but here goes: Houston -134 and if time available going in the second tier spot the Dodgers either with the high ML or I may go the way of the RL. Another: Colorado -134, two open. Another: Nats -149, two open. Another: Boston -200 (Sale), two open. GL tonight folks.
With every sports outlet picking the Titans, I feel they are overrated. I had them underrated last year but loved their o-line. They keep referencing before Mariota got injured. The thing is they were getting killed by the Jaguars before that injury. They pulled out some huge wins vs KC and GB but also struggled in their own division. I also wonder how Mariota's injury heals for this season as it was late in the season. I think they will be more of a .500 team that keeps games close. Hopefully, that means they cover the spread as underdogs.
