2014 Fantasy Football Studs

Stud: A NFL player who has proved himself to be a top scoring player at his position. These players should be started each week regardless of match-up and should only be benched during bye weeks and significant injuries. From our Fantasy Football Dictionary

Our writers have classified the following players as studs for 2014. We will be updating this list throughout the pre-season.

Name Pos Team Age Yrs
Exp.
Pos. Rank
Drew Brees QB NO 35 13 QB - #2
Drew Brees finished as a top two fantasy quarterback in five out of the last six seasons. He has never finished lower than third in fantasy points since he joined the Saints in 2006. He is an elite QB and unquestionably durable and consistent. Sure, he is 35 years old, but he has not missed a game due to injury since he joined the Saints. Brees has passed for more ... Read More
Jay Cutler QB CHI 31 8 QB - #5
BELIEVE: Jay Cutler signed a seven-year, $127 million contract in January that should keep him in the Windy City for at least three more years (the Bears can cut him in 2017 without paying him the remainder of his contract). The 30-year-old Vanderbilt alum missed five games with an ankle injury, but finished 2013 with five-year highs in passer rati... Read More
Robert Griffin III QB WAS 24 2 QB - #7
What a difference a year makes. Last offseason, there was a mounting tension between then-coach Mike Shanahan and Robert Griffin III centered around RG3's ability to be ready for the season-opener. Griffin was recovering from ACL and LCL ligament damage in his right knee. Although RG3 took the field to start the season, he struggled all year (much of which was a... Read More
Andrew Luck QB IND 25 2 QB - #4
UNLIMITED CEILING, MVP CANDIDATE. Andrew Luck enters his third year with more upside than any other QB. Luck finished 2013 outside the Top 10 in most relevant quarterback categories, but one must look beyond the numbers to grasp what awaits Luck. The former Stanford grad excelled in spite of injuries across the offense, leading his Colts to a di... Read More
Peyton Manning QB DEN 38 16 QB - #1
Encore? Sure, why not! Manning enjoyed the best season in NFL history, throwing for 5,477 yards and 55 touchdowns. If you played in a league where QBs earn four points per touchdown pass, he would have scored about 30 fantasy points per game. If you were lucky enough to get six points per TD, well, that's just not fair. Many people rode Manning to fantasy glo... Read More
Aaron Rodgers QB GB 31 9 QB - #3
ONE OF THE BEST: A broken collarbone cost Rodgers seven games last season. The 30-year-old Cal alum averaged 282 yards passing per game and finished with 17 touchdowns and six interceptions over nine games. Rodgers missed just two games over the previous five seasons and should continue to challenge Peyton Manning and Drew Brees for the top spot am... Read More
Matthew Stafford QB DET 26 5 QB - #6
PASS HAPPY Matthew Stafford is a fantasy stud. One thing we know is he is going to throw the ball and he's going to throw it a lot. Last year Stafford threw 93 fewer passes than in 2012, and his attempts were down to 634 (his lowest in any full season of his career). No, that is not a typo. For a bit of context, 634 attempts ranks as the 17th-most ... Read More
