Fantasy Football: NFL Team-By-Team Haikus
BEAST DOME NATION.
This article will recap team-by-team what I think will happen in the 2012 season. In a poetic straight to the point Haiku. Not really in perfect Haiku format so don’t be one of those guys.
Fred Jackson will make C.J. Spiller seem irrelevant as long as he is healthy.
Steve Johnson is still the primary target on this team.
The Bills defense has top 10 potential.
Ryan Tannehill has a hot wife. He is not fantasy relevant.
Reggie Bush is the only talented player on the offense.
The Dolphins do not have a #1 WR, Bess is the best guess. Someone else could sign.
The Dolphins defense is weak.
NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS
Stevan Ridley won the RB job. Not guaranteed to keep it all season.
Tom Brady will throw for 5,000 Yards and 50 TDs.
Aaron Hernandez may be the #1 option in the Patriots passing game.
