Fantasy football guru Michael Fabiano just released his first Top 200 for the upcoming season over at NFL.com. It might seem a bit early, but before you know it all us fantasy fanatics will be participating in countless mock drafts and scrutinizing whether LenDale White or Brandon Jacobs will score more touchdowns. I can’t wait.
If we are to believe Fabiano’s premature predictions, it looks as if the Eagles offense will be pretty darn potent in 2010. Let’s take a gander.
Kevin Kolb ranked #11 among QBs – Guess who he’s tied with? If you said Mr. McNabb, give yourself a gold star. Seems about right for KK. Although, I won’t be shocked if he finishes in the top six or seven.
LeSean McCoy ranked #16 among RBs – Shady checks in ahead of Ronnie Brown and Jonathan Stewart, but behind Knowshon Moreno and rookie Ryan Matthews. Again, I think this is a fair placement. I foresee lots of yards, but not many touchdowns for #25.
DeSean Jackson ranked #5 among WRs – He’s tied with Reggie Wayne and slightly ahead of Miles Austin and Calvin Johnson. DeSean will never catch a ton of balls, but when it comes to a big play threat, he might be the best at his position.
Jeremy Maclin ranked #29 among WRs – This seems low to me. I think JMac could snag 80-90 balls this season. He’ll be much better in 2010 and could easily finish in the top 15-20 wideouts. He knows the playbook and has added some muscle to his frame. A great mid-round sleeper.
Brent Celek ranked #4 among TEs – Celek caught 16 balls for 208 yards and a score in Kolb’s two starts in 2009. As long as he stays healthy, I see no reason why Celek won’t top his numbers from a year ago. He excels at separating from defenders and finding soft spots in zones. Leading all tight ends in catches is a realistic possibility.
I’d mention David Akers, but I don’t give a shit about kickers, so you’ll have to look for yourself. One last note. If Mike Bell is handed goal line duties, he’d make a nice late round pick.
