Fantasy Football 2012: Top 200 PPR Player Rankings (Updated 8/31)

As your draft starts to wind down into the final rounds, there are always a few players to keep in mind that may be overlooked by others, but could prove to be valuable stashes. This is especially the case for older veteran players who won’t generate buzz around the Internet or on major television networks.

I wanted to take the time to point out one player who fits these qualifications, but will likely end up starting for his team in the early weeks.

 

Norv Turner & Ronnie Brown Reunite In San Diego

Going back to their time in Miami, Norv Turner has been a fan of Ronnie Brown. While Ryan Mathews continues to work his way back from his shoulder injury, Brown is likely to be the starter in the Chargers offense, and that holds some value.

Sure, you probably won’t look to him as a starter in the early weeks, because most of your early-round picks are healthy.

Still, look to Brown as a late-round addition, and if he helps the Chargers in the early weeks, Turner is likely to call on Brown as a starting replacement again if and when Mathews goes down with another injury.

What I like about stashing Brown (especially in PPR leagues) is Turner’s heavy use of running backs in the passing game. Expect Brown to be active in this area even when Mathews comes back, and that ups his value.
