Perhaps some of you knew this, but when I started this blog for the Observer-Reporter some six or seven years ago - I can't remember how long I've been doing it – I did so as a fantasy football blog.
And we can't lose touch with those roots.
As such, here are my top 10 players at each position heading into 2010:
1. Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay - Poised for a huge season.
2. Drew Brees, New Orleans
3. Peyton Manning, Indianapolis
4. Tom Brady, New England
5. Philip Rivers, San Diego
6. Tony Romo, Dallas
7. Matt Schaub, Houston - His injury history scares me - even though he stayed healthy in 2009 - but anyone throwing to Andre Johnson is going to be good.
8. Eli Manning, N.Y. Giants
9. Donovan McNabb, Washington
10. Matt Ryan, Atlanta
1. Chris Johnson, Tennessee - History shows us that running backs coming off 2,000-yard seasons struggle, but Johnson is valuable in the passing game as well. Even if he rushes for 1,500 yards, what he adds in the passing game makes him great.
2. Adrian Peterson, Minnesota
3. Ray Rice, Baltimore
4. Maurice Jones-Drew, Jacksonville
5. Michael Turner, Atlanta
6. Frank Gore, San Francisco - Another player whose injury history scares me. But the 49ers are a team on the upswing.
7. Steven Jackson, St. Louis
8. Rashard Mendenhall, Pittsburgh - Mendenhall is going to be a big part of the passing game as well.
9. DeAngelo Williams, Carolina
10. Pierre Thomas, New Orleans
1. Andre Johnson, Houston - The gold standard for wide receivers
2. Randy Moss, New England
3. Reggie Wayne, Indianpolis
4. Roddy White, Atlanta
5. Miles Austin, Dallas
6. Larry Fitzgerald, Arizona - The QB situation in Arizona scares me or Fitgerald would be higher.
7. Greg Jennings, Green Bay
8. Calvin Johnson, Detroit
9. Marques Colston, New Orleans
10. Brandon Marshall, Miami
1. Dallas Clark, Indianapolis
2. Vernon Davis, San Francisco
3. Antonio Gates, San Diego
4. Brent Celek, Philadelphia - A tight end is a young quarterback's best friend.
5. Jermichael Finley, Green Bay
6. Jason Witten, Dallas
7. Chris Cooley, Washington
8. Zach Miller, Oakland
9. Owen Daniels, Houston
10. Kellen Winslow, Tampa Bay
