Fantasy vs. Reality: Round 2

Posted: Updated:

13. Aaron Rodgers

With his bye week in the rear view mirror, Rodgers continues to be a fantasy point producer. When it comes to actual points, it's Peyton, then flip a coin between Brees and Rodgers.

14. Dez Bryant

After his ridiculous end to the season last year, Bryant has four scores to begin 2013. His yards per game (70.5) could be better and if we redrafted knowing what we know now, we'd take Demaryius, Welker and Julio in front of the Dez dispenser.

15. Matt Forte

In PPR leagues only Adrian Peterson and Jamaal Charles have scored more points than Forte. First round talent in the second round. If he stays healthy, Forte will project to a 1200 yard rusher and a 60+ reception season.

16. AJ Green

Through four weeks, there are 11 wide receivers in front of AJ Green. He has been targeted 50 times which is second in the NFL but has just 26 catches and 300 yards. He has found the endzone three times which calms some of his owners worries surrounding his early performance.

17. Steven Jackson

Those who spent a second round pick on Jackson expecting him to suddenly find the fountain of youth have instead been met by the crypt keeper. Jackson played in two games before injuring his quad. His 77 yards rushing and no rushing scores leave a ton to be desired in a stacked offense.

18. Chris Johnson

Oh boy…I really don't need to tell you how I feel about Chris Johnson do I? Ok…here goes. The self-anointed greatest of all times is averaging 3.29 yards per carry and has yet to find the endzone. He is as useless as a ballpeen hammer.

19. Peyton Manning

If we redrafted today would you take Peyton Manning first overall? He has outscored everyone in fantasy football and is on pace for 64 touchdowns and no interceptions. Looking at his schedule the only thing that may slow Peyton is the weather in Denver in December.

20. Julio Jones

Jones has scored more points than Bryant, Green and Calvin Johnson all of whom were drafted in front of him. His 33 catches is one behind the league leaders Julian Edelman and Andre Johnson. His production may slip a little with Roddy White returning to health, but those who took Julio in the second round got a steal.

21. Brandon Marshall

A new offense hasn't stopped Brandon Marshall, but he is currently 15th when it comes to fantasy points scored. That said, Marshall wouldn't go any later if you were lining up and redrafting knowing what you know now.

22. Stevan Ridley

Is it possible that a guy who lost his job in week one to fumbling and then got a second chance when Shane Vereen went down injured could be so pathetic? Well, hello Mr. Ridley, your 174 yards rushing and 3.7 average per carry helps no one.

23. Jimmy Graham

He is the top fantasy receiver regardless of position and his six touchdowns is tied for the NFL lead (Adrian Peterson, Wes Welker). If you have Jimmy Graham on your team, you are probably liking where you are sitting right now.

24. Demaryius Thomas

By most scoring systems, Thomas is the top scoring wide receiver in the league and with Peyton Manning having a ridiculous season, he doesn't show signs of stopping. If we redrafted, he would be a first round pick.
