Now that Tebowmania is coming to New York, many fans are interested in what the Tim Tebow fantasy projections are. But when it comes to fantasy football quarterbacks, you're going to need more than a hope and a prayer in order to win your league. So what can people expect out of Tim Tebow?
As of now, Tim Tebow is not the New York Jets starting quarterback – Mark Sanchez is. And it is unclear right now what Tim Tebow will be doing with the Jets, other than being a backup quarterback and being part of a “wildcat” offense.
Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III, known as RGIII, is going to be in the 2012 National League Football draft. But where will Robert Griffin rank in the fantasy football 2012 draft, and is he worth picking up?
Well, the Baylor quarterback is drawing all sorts of talk – and comparisons – these days. Robert Griffin is expected to be drafted second in the NFL draft, just after fellow quarterback Andrew Luck. So the St. Louis Rams – or whoever the Rams trade with – will end up with a young QB with a great arm. And Robert Griffin III is drawing comparisons to a fellow Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback – Cam Newton, who was a great fantasy football pick in his rookie season for those who drafted him.
Victor Cruz, the undrafted University of Massachusetts wide receiver, became the breakout star for the New York Giants last season, and the Victor Cruz fantasy numbers in 2011 made him a great fantasy football sleeper pick. To top it all off, Victor Cruz caught a touchdown in Super Bowl XLVI and helped lead the Giants to a Super Bowl victory. He also became a star off the field, thanks to his salsa dancing after touchdowns. Not only did Madonna do his famous salsa dance; Victor Cruz was also asked to present at the Grammys. The New Jersey native also has a book deal, and is arguably the second most popular player on the team, after Eli Manning.
So what does it all mean when it comes to figuring out the Victor Cruz fantasy numbers when it comes to fantasy football 2012? Chances are, thanks to him becoming a household name, Victor Cruz may be in the minds of many fantasy football team owners. So expect in fantasy football 2012 for him to be drafted higher than he might deserve. (The same thing is very likely to happen to his quarterback, Eli Manning, in fantasy football drafts – the fame and Super Bowl win will make them both top picks.)
What is the Adrian Peterson fantasy potential when it comes to fantasy football 2012? The Minnesota Vikings running back is one of the biggest stars in the NFL – the Adrian Peterson fantasy ranking was No. 1 in 2011 fantasy football rankings. However, Adrian Peterson fantasy football fans were brokenhearted when he first missed three games with a high ankle sprain in 2011, then he tore his ACL and MCL in his left knee towards the end of the season.
Since then, the Adrian Peterson injury update is that he underwent surgery, then has been steadily doing rehab. The hope is that he will be ready to start the season in fantasy football 2012, but the latest Adrian Peterson injury update is that this could potentially not happen, although those around him say that it's a possibility. One thing is for sure for fantasy football 2012 is that the Vikings will not bring back Randy Moss, no matter what happens.
Tight end Rob Gronkowski had a breakout season for the New England Patriots, and was one of the reasons the team made it to the Super Bowl this season. So what are the fantasy football 2012 prospects for Gronkowski? Well, first off, he recently had arthroscopic ankle surgery on his ankle, so any surgery on an athlete could be a potential concern.
The 2011 Rob Gronkowski fantasy numbers were the best in the NFL for a tight end – he led all tight ends in touchdowns, and was ranked the top in fantasy numbers. As for the Rob Gronkowski fantasy 2012 fantasy numbers, he will most likely still be ranked at the top for tight ends. However, there are a few questions when it comes to the Rob Gronkowski fantasy numbers. The first, as previously noted, is whether Rob Gronkowski will totally be healed from the surgery by the time the season starts.
