Fantasy forecast: Charles takes home MVP honors

    The season has been over for several weeks now, and we have all had a chance to sit back and digest who did what in fantasy football this year.         With that being the case, I think it is over-due that I hand out my 2013 fantasy football awards.


    2013 Fantasy MVP: Jamaal Charles- In standard leagues 15 or more points is a big number. There was no WR, no TE, no D/ST that averaged that and there were only three RB, and Charles led that pack by more than two points per game. However, there were 13 QBs who averaged over 15 points, so to me Charles, as a RB, would have done more for a team than Peyton Manning since there were so many great QBs and so few great RBs.

Runner up: Peyton Manning

    2013 Fantasy Rookie of the Year: Eddie Lacy- Lacy was outstanding as a rookie. Not only did he score 198 points in standard leagues, but he broke 200 in PPR leagues. In standard scoring he finished as the sixth best overall RB on an offense that has desperately needed a running game for years.

Runner up: Le’Veon Bell

Best Waiver-Wire Pickup: Nick Foles- He didn’t play until Week 4, didn’t start until after that and still managed to be the 11th best QB and 14th best overall player this year. If you drafted Foles, pat yourself on the back. If you picked him up then send him a thank you tweet.

    Fantasy Stud: Josh Gordon- Gordon was the 43rd WR taken on average and finished as the, wait for it, first overall WR. On average, he was drafted as the 122nd player and finished as the 21st highest scorer. He overcame bad QB play, low expectations, bad weather and proved that he deserves to be THE fantasy stud of 2013.
