2014 Fantasy MVP
Jordy Nelson Fantasy MVP?
The 2014 fantasy football season is coming to an end. Now is the time to look at some of the heroes that may have helped you to win your league. Like every other year it is easy to think that some players should be MVP's but the statistics do not prove that those players are worth the MVP award. The one player that probably is at the top of the list is Calvin Johnson. Although he played well this season his per game average is below ten points. Johnson was injured for part of the season. Although the Lions were not affected by his absence, it did affect teams throughout most leagues. Who are some of the players that should be strong contenders for the 2014 fantasy football MVP.
For a large part of the 2014 season Jordy Nelson lead the league in receiving yardage or touchdowns. Nelson is averaging a little over fourteen points per game this season. Nelson has slowed down a little bit over the last few weeks of the season, but Nelson's earlier success has set up team mangers to make a playoff run. The managers that have Nelson on their team also have the benefit of Green Bay's playoff run, because he needs to play in every game until the Packers have clinched a playoff berth.
Brown currently leads the NFL in receiving touchdowns. He might also lead the league in highlight real material. He seems to be Ben Roethlisberger's favorite target. Brown averages sixteen points a game, and is very consistent. Usually Brown will account for a hundred yards a game. The Steelers are also playing for playoff position, and he has to play at a high level so that they make the playoff.
Manning is always an MVP candidate. He will give the fantasy team that he is on, a chance to make the playoffs, almost every season that he has been in the NFL. Through thirteen games this season Manning has averaged almost thirty points a game. Through out Manning's career people have criticized him for not playing well in the cold weather months. Since moving to Denver he has proved those critics wrong.
The third year pro has proven why the colts took him with the overall number one pick in 2011. Luck is averaging almost four more points a game then Manning. Luck is a solid choice for MVP because he scores a lot of points. He is also a good choice because he does not turn the ball over very often.
The second year back is less then a point behind the league leader. Currently Damarco Murray is having a career year, but Bell is doing very well this season. If a manager has him on their team they have a very good percentage of making it to the championship game in your league.
The MVP discussion is a fun argument to have, because each player may have been a major factor in their team winning a fantasy championship.
