2013 Fantasy Football Studs

Stud: A NFL player who has proved himself to be a top scoring player at his position. These players should be started each week regardless of match-up and should only be benched during bye weeks and significant injuries. From our Fantasy Football Dictionary

Our writers have classified the following players as studs for 2013. We will be updating this list throughout the pre-season.

Name Pos Team Age Yrs
Exp.
Pos. Rank
Drew Brees QB NO 35 12 QB - #1
Drew Brees enters the 2013 season as one of the top quarterbacks in fantasy football. Brees is coming off a season in which he threw for 5177 yards, 43 touchdowns, and 19 interceptions. Brees led the league in both passing yards and touchdowns, but his numbers were down from an even more spectacular 2011 season. Brees should have no problem keeping his fantasy d... Read More
Colin Kaepernick QB SF 26 2 QB - #8
After an outstanding rookie campaign and Super Bowl run, Kaepernick's stock is through the roof. The loss of Michael Crabtree hurts somewhat, but is offset a bit by the offseason acquisition of Anquan Boldin. Boldin makes a fantastic target for a player like Kaepernick who may be on the move during his throwing motion. A big, reliable target to pair up with Verno... Read More
Peyton Manning QB DEN 38 15 QB - #4
Peyton Manning's return to the NFL was a triumph. Throwing for over 4,600 yards with 37 TDs made him a desireable fantasy stud once again. There were skeptics last season, but I think any doubts are erased moving forward. Manning will control the pace of his offense and challenge any opponent this coming season. He should be back near the top of your fantasy radar ... Read More
Cam Newton QB CAR 24 2 QB - #3
Entering his third season, Cam Newton is poised as one of the premiere young talents in the league. Despite a slight statistical regression in 2012, Newton still dominated as Carolina's signal-caller. Not only is he a threat to eclipse 4,000 passing yards, Newton has the ability to throw 30 TDs and add 10 TDs on the ground. The Panthers may be thin on playmakers, b... Read More
Aaron Rodgers QB GB 30 8 QB - #2
Aaron Rodgers signed a five-year, $110 million extension last month, making him the highest paid player in NFL history. Fantasy owners owe him a debt of gratitude as well. Rodgers has been excellent in his five years as a starter. His numbers did take a small step back though without WR Greg Jennings around for most of the year. Jennings is now in Minnesota and WR ...

Matt Ryan QB ATL 28 5 QB - #9
Matt Ryan really came into his own last season. He enjoyed career highs in completions, attempts, completion percentage, passing yards and touchdowns. The addition of Julio Jones a couple seasons ago has obviously panned out and Roddy White can still get it done at the age of 31. Bringing in Steven Jackson should only help matters. Michael Turner was a glorified go... Read More
