Who does everyone think will bounce back in 2014, either due to an down seasons or one that was injury plagued?

The most attention will be on guys like:

Arian Foster
Julio Jones
Doug Martin
RG3
Ray Rice
CJ Spiller
Trent Richardson
Matt Ryan

Anyone else I'm forgetting?

I'm guessing most of these guys can be draft bargains, but some may simply be on the decline like Rice and Foster.

It will be interesting to see if age/injury will allow Roddy White to return to a top 10 ish WR

Julio Jones. Hopefully the injury put him out of most peoples minds, I'll be targeting him in the second or third rounds.

Aaron Rodgers same deal.

CJ Spiller.

I don't believe Foster is on the decline. He was playing quite well. I think he bounces back.

Matt Ryan if he gets a new offensive line and RG3 if he gets a new coach.

Should be able to get Gronk at a discount as well.

Julio, RG3, and Doug Martin should all be top-5 at their positions next year.
Major bounce back.

Randall Cobb for me. I thought this was going to be a huge year for the guy. Points wise, I think he was top5 before the injury

I don't think Doug Martin makes a big comeback. It was the same offense as the previous year and he didn't do much in the time he was playing before the injury. And then of course the changes that might happen in the off-season. Sometimes a RB doesn't thrive in a new running scheme, if it happens. It'd be nice though.

I think Julio is a given.

RG3 is another suspect. I don't doubt his talent, but again, the amount of changes that are going to happen to that team, I just hope he can come out and prove everyone wrong with a full off-season. I like RG3 a lot.

Texans defense, I'm thinking they bring in a defensive minded coach, a reestablished run game and hopefully a QB that isn't at the very least a turnover machine. My guess is they draft a defensive player in the first round or Bridgewater, they get Cushing back, JJ Watt especially if he gets another dangerous DE/LB to work with will be an absolute monster again.

Keep in mind that Martin was under a lost team, staph infected offensive line, strange QB controversy, opponents stacked boxes, etc.
The good thing is that in this system, he gets over 20 carries and has little competition.

Doug Martin wasn't killing people prior to the injury. And their O-line started gelling later in the season. Their stud OL was finally IR'd after weeks of battling staff infection. Oh and he was playing with Freeman. He's going to have a bounce back much like McCoy this season. And people will be rewarded. Julio Jones had a injury to the same foot that has troubled him in the past. He's also always injured. I'll be taking my chances on someone who can stay healthy a full season. And RG3 has been figured out. If the run is taken away he's not a good NFL passer. At least not yet. I'd rather put my dollars on someone who isn't a one trick pony.

Others I'll add as bounce back candidates.
Any Packers WR especially Cobb.
Harvin - oft injured but finally has the time to get healthy.
Greg Jennings - with a QB who isn't Ponder he's been very good.
Rudolph - he will be really cheap. And probably post top 10 TE numbers.
Crabtree - He should go into the season healthy next year. He can be a WR1.
Alfred Morris - Maybe not a bounceback but with some changes he is a workhorse that can post top 5 RB numbers.

That, and he is actually only 27 next year. He's got a couple of years left, but I'll be watching closely as to which coach/O-coordinator comes to town and what kind of system is implemented.

He had over 500 total yards in 5.5 games, mostly with Josh Freeman as his QB. He didn't score many TDs, but TDs in fantasy football can be very unpredictable especially when your offense is sputtering. Had he stayed healthy I could've seen him putting up a disappointing yet decent year.
I have 2 warning points. How many until I get a prize?

Another good point. Mike Glennon/Josh Freeman weren't exactly moving the ball or stretching the field by any means at the time.

Julio Jones. Hopefully the injury put him out of most peoples minds, I'll be targeting him in the second or third rounds.

Aaron Rodgers same deal.

CJ Spiller.


This exactly, I would add Percy Harvin to this list and these will be some of my biggest targets next year.

Good luck getting Julio or Rodgers in round 2. I think Spiller and Harvin could fall though. Good candidates but I still think Rodgers and Julio are fantasy cornerstones.
