Second Half Fantasy Studs
Looking for those guys that will set you apart from the rest in the second half? Target this players…
Brandon Lafell – Here’s a big physical WR who’s in an IDEAL situation; Tom Brady’s deep threat, top passing down RB done for the season. Lafell had some rust, but his production has increased each week of his first 3 games back and posted a fine 100 yard game last week. The reign of Lafell is coming. And likely, this week (week 9). He’s getting ample targets in the best offense in the NFL as a #1 WR. If you can get him cheap trade for him now! A few back to back scoring games will launch Lafell into the top 15 category.
Richard Rodgers – The development of RR has been frustrating. He’s playing better football than his fantasy numbers suggest and is sloooowly becoming a big part of the GB offense. If RR could receive double digit targets he could be a beast. With the revolving door that the GB WRs have been, RR should be a high volume guy now! But he’s not… None the less, if A-Rod wakes up one day and peppers Rodgers, I believe he will deliver. 2 TD’s last week are nice, but he needs more passes. Worth noting, RR did come on strong towards the end of last season, so maybe a repeat performance is in the cards.
Brandon Bolden – Deon Lewis out… now it’s a toss-up between James White and Brandon Bolden. My money is on Bolden. He’s a bigger back for a passing downs RB which is exactly what leads many to lean towards White. But Bolden is an excellent pass catcher with solid blocking ability. BB is sneaky and i expect that he’ll lean towards Bolden. By the time week 10 rolls around, it will be to late.
