Fantasy Football: Eight NFL Players Set to Decline in 2014
According to NFL.com article I just read and the Around the League podcast, here is a list of eight players poised to decline in 2014. How many do you agree or disagree with?
1. Wes Welker
2. Larry Fitzgerald
3. Fred Jackson
4. Antonio Gates
5. Cam Newton
6. DeMarcus Ware
7. Knowshon Moreno
8. Arian Foster
I’ll say that I agree about Wes Welker, Antonio Gates, Cam Newton and Knowshon Moreno on this decline list. I’m borderline about Arian Foster.
Briefly, Welker is getting older, and once again, the dual-Thomas threats will keep him from attaining the production he had in New England.
Gates, ditto is getting older. The team is crafting TE Ladarius Green to take the reigns. Gates numbers keep dropping.
Newton is left holding the bag with a rusty, aging crew of receivers and a a fresh rookie with much to learn.
Moreno played his best season and is now paying for it with a knee injury and a new team with younger competition.
Foster, I on the fence about. He won’t be the same as two seasons ago, but I see him returning healthy from surgery with better numbers to offer, especially when it comes to PPR leagues.
