Fantasy Football Profile: Randy Moss
Perhaps nobody is as thankful for Tom Brady’s return than Randy Moss. His receptions took a 30% hit, his yardage a 32.5% hit, and his TDs a 52% hit. It’s not like his 1008 yards and 11 TDs with Matt Cassel were bad, but it was a far cry from the 1493 & 23 he produced in 2007. Though it seems like Moss has been in the league forever, he’s just 32 and still should have a few high level seasons in him…if he’s motivated. I’m sure he’s motivated this year as the Super Bowl loss and TB’s injury have left a bad taste in his mouth.
Despite the amazing 2007 season and being one of the best WRs of all time, I still have Moss ranked as the third best WR. I just think Larry Fitzgerald and Andre Johnson have a little less risk associated with them. Of course, Moss is going a few picks after them so he is a slightly better value. I could see Moss putting up 1200+ yards and 12 TDs. If Brady shows no lingering effects of his knee injury, those numbers could significantly increase.
