2012 Fantasy Football Sleepers: San Francisco 49ers Wide Receiver Randy Moss
After giving retirement a chance for one year, Randy Moss made the decision to give the NFL one final shot as the potential future Hall of Fame wide receiver looks to make another run at earning a Super Bowl ring as a member of the San Francisco 49ers. The 2010 season may have arguably been the most disappointing year of Moss’ career, but there’s plenty of reason to believe he could be one of the top 2012 fantasy football sleepers for the upcoming season.
From 2007-09, Moss recorded 3,765 receiving yards and 47 touchdowns as a member of the New England Patriots, but the team parted ways with him during the middle of the 2010 season as he had short stints with the Minnesota Vikings and Tennessee Titans. That season, Moss only caught 28 passes for five touchdowns the entire season and in the eight games he played in with the Titans–he only recorded six catches for 80 yards and zero touchdowns.
Sure, these type of numbers may make fantasy owners hesitant towards selecting Moss for their team, but he could certainly be worth the risk if he returns to his old dominant form. Let’s not forget Moss played most of the 2010 season on an unhappy note considering he was looking for a new long-term deal and he enters the 2012 season knowing this may be his last chance to play for any NFL team.
Plus, the 49ers have upgraded their passing game this season with the additions of Moss and Mario Manningham to play alongside Vernon Davis–so the potential to put up big numbers this season is certainly there for Moss.
