Now that the fake football season has come to an end, the team here at the Fix chimes in with our annual “End of Season Awards”
In part one, we looked at the biggest bust, waiver wire pickup of the year, biggest injury and “Mr. Reliable.”
Here in part two, we will name the “biggest tease”, “rookie of the year”, “MVP” and an early top ten for 2013.
Biggest Tease by Brett Talley
Coming off their Week 4 bye, the Steelers were bringing back Rashard Mendenhall from injury. Mendenhall was a big waiver wire pickup heading into week 5, and he delivered with 15 fantasy points. As a result, he was added in most all leagues in which he wasn’t added the week before. At something close to full ownership, Mendenhall proceeded to produce one of the lowest fantasy point totals for someone owned in that many leagues. An injury limited him to one point in week 6 and kept him out the next four weeks. He also missed weeks 13, 14, and 15, and produced just eight fantasy points from week 6 on.
