While Randy Moss won't be "The Freak" that tormented defenses in the 2000s, he'll still be productive for the San Francisco 49ers and a great option for fantasy teams in 2012.
After a one-year hiatus from the game, Moss is eager to end his legacy on a positive note. His surprising retirement after the 2010 season shocked many people because just the season prior Moss had Pro Bowl-type numbers.
According to ESPN's Fantasy Football projections:
Do we think Moss will completely flame out? We give that scenario a decent chance, but anyone who's observed the Randy Ratio in the past knows he tends to perform best when people are at the end of their rope with him.
Moss is a late-round lottery ticket only.
In the past, fans have seen Moss flourish when he was in a situation that he liked, and the added contract incentives should push him even more. He also won't be going against many elite passing defenses, so there aren't a lot of chances to bottle him up in 2012.
With all that taken into account, Moss should still be one of the most dangerous receivers in the NFL, even at 35 years old.
