New Face of fantasy

I normally do not buy into the hype but I have to say there is something about Aaron Rodgers when you watch him play that makes you believe he is going to be the best Quarterback in the league very soon. He definitely has that "it" factor. His feel for the game is spectacular. Behind a terrible offensive line that allowed 50 sacks he still completed 64.7 percent of his passes for 4,434 yards and 30 touchdowns. I dont know about you but that sounds very good to me. Aaron Rodgers should be the first Quarterback taken off the board in all fantasy formats, and expect even better numbers than he put up last year.

Is Clinton Portis still fantasy relevant?

I read an interesting article asking was Clinton Portis still fantasy relevant. I went back and looked at some of his stats and a couple interesting things jumped out at me. First off Clinton is only 29 he has not reached the dreaded age of 30 where all running backs tend to drop off. He did miss 8 games due to concussions, which could be a good thing for him because he should be fresh heading into this season. As of right now he is the starter and he had his best and most productive years under new head coach Mike Shannahan. I believe Clinton should be on fantasy teams this year and he just might reward his owners with a nice season.
