|QB Tim Tebow||
How could I not mention Tebow? Since taking over as the starter in Denver, Tebow threw 11 touchdown passes and only two interceptions. In addition, he ran for 616 yards and scored 5 touchdowns on the ground. You may not like the style, but from a fantasy perspective, he's been exciting to watch. Not to mention maddening to play against.
|QB Andy Dalton||Overshadowed by rookie Cam Newton, Dalton had himself quite a year. 3012 passing yards, 18 touchdowns and one rushing score through Week 15. Not bad considering the youth and inexperience of his supporting cast.|
|RB DeMarco Murray||
During an 8 week run, filling in for the injured Felix Jones, Murray was quite a factor, rushing for 831 yards two touchdowns and adding 154 yards receiving. Safe to say, he gave Dallas that much needed balance and ignited the passing game. He was quite a find in 2011, without question.
|RB Michael Bush||Stepping in for the seemingly ALWAYS injured Darren McFadden, Bush filled the gap for the Raiders with 8 total touchdowns, 841 rushing yards and 381 receiving yards. If you were smart enough to draft him with McFadden, you validated the necessity and importance of the concept known as the "fantasy handcuff".|
|RB Roy Helu||He was a member of the Mike Shanahan running back shell game early on, but when injures forced things a bit, Helu came on in a big way during the end of the season and the playoffs, with 504 rushing yards, 239 receiving yards and two scores through Week 15.|
|WR Victor Cruz||
Every year there is that one guy.. That one guy who busts out and makes us love the waiver wire. Well, this year at the WR position we have a few... Firstly, Victor Cruz with 1194 receiving yards and seven TD's - not too shabby for a waiver wire score with a couple of games still to go.
|WR Jordy Nelson||You already have the likes of Greg Jennings, Donald Driver, and Jermichael Finley. So no one thought that Nelson would make as much of an impact as he has thus far in 2011. Add him in with Victor Cruz as one of 2011's most pleasant surprises. So far, Nelson has provided 986 yards and 10 touchdowns.|
|WR Laurent Robinson||Miles Austin is out, Miles Austin is in, it just didn't seem to matter as Robinson has been a fantasy gem from a scoring and consistency standpoint. So far in 2011, 792 yards and 9 touchdowns is pretty solid from a guy no one even sniffed on draft day.|
|WR Torrey Smith||Speaking of consistency... All in all, not too shabby, rookie. With veteran WR Lee Evans battling the never-ending ankle woes, Smith broke on the scene and defitely turned some heads. Man, you get consistency under your belt and look out - we have a game-breaking top 10 talent at the position. So far in 2011, he's chipped in 770 yards and 7 touchdowns.|
|WR Eric Decker||Despite a dramatic change in quarterback, Decker still proved to be a reliable option for both the Broncos and the fantasy owners fortunate enough to have him on their squad. Over 600 yards and 8 touchdowns in his situation is something to recognize.|
|WR Lance Moore||A waiver wire selection hitting his stride and getting hot at just the right time. In what can be a crowded stable of solid wide receivers, Moore managed seven of his eight touchdowns after week 8. A hot hand can do significant damage in the fantasy playoffs, without question.|
|TE Fred Davis||
When Santana Moss went down, even before, Davis was one of the brighter spots in the Redskins passing attack. Despite his season coming to an abrupt end due to a late season suspension, it will be hard to ignore his 793 yards and 3 touchdowns when next year rolls around.
|TE Brent Celek||When he is not blocking, he's a real solid fantasy tight end. After the top guys, any guy that can get into the endzone three times and come close to 700 yards receiving is worth noting. The Eagles are welcoming his value as a receiver again and from a fantasy standpoint it's nice to see.|
|TE Scott Chandler||An early spark at the position who faded along with his team, Chandlercertainly made his presence felt in 2011. Not as much with his yards, but for his nose for the endzone, hitting pay dirt 6 times so far this season. That could be it though, as injuries are taking their toll.|
