                Going into each fantasy season there are a number of players who are affectionately referred to as “Question marks.”  Typically, these are young players yet to peak, older guys a little past their prime, or players who find themselves in a different environment this year.  This week I’ll do a little Q and A with myself and try to clear a few things up.  Do I usually hate it when people ask themselves questions and then answer them on their own before anyone else gets a chance to instead of just being smart enough to form their thought into a sentence?  Nah, I don’t really mind.  Here goes.

Q:  Can Tom Brady get back to his 2007 record breaking form this year?  A: No.  See, easy enough.  Next question.

Q:  Is Favre coming back?  A: I think he is.  He got the offseason ankle surgery for a reason.  And this guy’s a freak.  He may have had his best statistical season ever last year.  And he’s 58.

Q:  Will Kevin Kolb be a top 10 fantasy QB this season?  A: I like Kolb this year.  Like Aaron Rodgers, Matt Schaub, and Philip Rivers, I think Kolb is ready to step in and play well.  So yes, top 10.

Q:  Is Chris Johnson worthy of a number one pick?  A: I’d still go AP if I got the first pick.  I like CJ, but he won’t match last season’s success.  Plus, AP has become a legitimate pass catcher out of the back field.

Q:  How effective will LT be in NY?  A: Shonn Greene is your answer.  This guy is a moose, and he’s ready to carry the load.  LT will catch a few passes, and spell Greene when he gets tired, but don’t expect a 50-50 scenario.

Q:  Which Dallas RB will have the best fantasy year?  A: Yikes.  If you have to take one, I’d go with Felix Jones.  Just know that every week you’ll find new and creative ways to hate Marion Barber for stealing all of your TDs.

Q:  Is Larry Fitzgerald still a top tier WR after losing Warner and Boldin?  A: Fitz is awesome.  But his value definitely takes a hit without Old Man River under center and without Anquan keeping opposing teams DBs honest 8-11 weeks a year.  Talent wise, Fitz is top 3.  Given the situation, he barely cracks my top 10.

Q:  Will Brandon Marshall get his usual numbers playing in Miami?  No WR in the league has a better chance of pulling in 100 catches than Marshall.  It’s one of those absolutes in life.  Death, taxes, Seacrest, and Brandon Marshall catches a hundred balls.

Hopefully you find this somewhat helpful.  I recognize that there are several Question Mark players that I failed to address.  So if you want my take on someone not seen here, or a more detailed explanation about a player I did discuss, send all questions and comments to
