Fantasy Trader’s Fantasy Football Roundtable: A Year Early

Mar 3, 2010

I’ve been invited to participate in Fantasy Trader’s fantasy football roundtable.

This week’s topic:
“Second verse, same as the first…”  Who were you a year early with?  One of your undervalued players from 2009 that did not pan out, yet you remain high on.

My response:
Joseph Addai outperformed my expectations in 2009 with 1164 total yards (828 rushing, 336 receiving) and 13 total TDs (10 rushing, 3 receiving). I expected him to have a solid year, but I thought Donald Brown would have emerged and taken away some of the production.

Brown battled injuries and finished with 450 total yards (281 rushing, 169 receiving) and 3 TDs (all rushing). He clearly wasn’t the favored back in the playoffs either.

That just means Brown should be a better value in this year’s fantasy drafts. The Colts spent a first round pick on Brown, and I expect his role to increase next year. He has a burst that Addai doesn’t have anymore, and if Addai got injured, Brown’s numbers could take off.
