Moss could Pack a punch in Green Bay

Randy Moss is a one-dimensional player whose skills are eroding. At his best last year for the Raiders he was going through the motions. By midseason, he quit.

Moss needs to be properly motivated these days. That’s a sad statement for someone making damn near $10 million a year, but it’s the reality. If properly motivated, and in the right situation, I believe Moss can still make big plays and a big fantasy impact.

  • The Prince Connection: Rodgers and Nelson July 7, 2014
    If you follow along over at my Twitter account @FG_Dolan (shameless plug), you’ve probably noticed my undying love for Jordy Nelson, and the fact that I’d happily welcome him onto any of my fantasy teams this year. First of all, he’s madly productive as is: he hauled in 85/1314/8 last year and averaged 16.5 FPG in a PPR league. That was good enough to rank h […]
