Fantasy Football's Ultimate Super Sleeper: Fred Davis

Jake WinieckiCorrespondent IIIJune 21, 2010

    As a rookie in 2008, Fred Davis put up a disappointing 3 catches for a measly 27 yards.  He was a huge dissapointment as a rookie out of USC with high expectations surrounding him.  He followed that up with a breakout-of-sorts type season.

    He started 10 games due to injuries to Chris Cooley and in those 10 starts posted 48 receptions for 509 yards and 6 TDs with a 10.6 yards per reception average.  Pretty good numbers for 10 starts with essentially no QB throwing to him.  That is probably the number one reason for his value this year, Donovan McNabb.

    Now that the 'Skins finally have a legit QB under center you can expect an increase of the stats of 3 key players: Santana Moss, Chris Cooley if he stays healthy, and Fred Davis.

    Davis has tremendous athletic ability and huge potential.  I expect him to continue to improve this season and make a pretty strong fantasy impact for Washington.  I expect somewhere around 600-800 yards and 8-10 TDs, making Davis a potential top 10 fantasy TE.  Also, based on where he's projected to be drafted in most fantasy leagues he is worth the risk because you wouldn't really be wasting a high pick.  That's why I think he is the ultimate super sleeper for the 2010 season.
