Fantasy Player Rankings: Dolphins' Ted Ginn Jr.

Ginn Jr. will take another step in 2009

Last year really helped Ginn's fantasy value coming into this season. Mainly because he now has a capable quarterback and rock solid supporting cast around him.

The third season in a receivers carrier is usually the year he breaks out and truly establishes himself in the NFL. While Ted has not posted more then two touchdowns in a single year, one has to believe he will go past that number this season.

Good supporting Cast

With a running game people have to respect and the "wildcat" offense in place for explosive plays look for the Dolphins to exploit teams down the field. When it comes to long balls one can only think of Ginn as he is truly the speed burner on this team.

Chad Pennington may not have the strongest arm but he is a precise passer. Chad should be more comfortable in the the Dolphins offense now that he has had a full off-season with the team.

Ted Ginn Jr.'s fantasy football value in 2009

Look for this talented burner to post at least 950 yards and 5 touchdowns in his third year out of Ohio State. That may not seem like much but remember this kid has great ability's once the ball is in his hands. By next season Ginn should be in line to have a better year than in this one. That is as long as the quarterback play remains solid.

Look for Ginn in the later part of the middle rounds. He will make for a nice No.4 receiver this season.

Fantasy Assets:
- Speed
- Good team around him
- Good weather

Fantasy Liability's:

- On a run first team
- Needs to improve his touchdown totals

Fantasy Player Rankings: Jets' Shonn Greene

Playing the Spoiler Role in 2009

In this years draft you will see teams probably draft Thomas Jones in the first 5 rounds. You may even see teams take a stab at back up runner Leon Washington. But you would be a wise fantasy owner to pay attention to 3rd round rook runner Shonn Greene.

Greene had a very good junior year at Iowa posting 307 carries, 1.850 yards and 20 touchdowns. For this season the key stat in those numbers is the 20 touchdowns. Shonn's playing weight is 235 pounds, this size clearly makes him the biggest runner on the Jets roster.

Last year Thomas Jones had 15 touchdowns, but that was by far his best totals in his career. Jones received those numbers mainly because of two reasons. For one he had Brett Favre and defense's had to respect the pass. The second reason was that the Jets didn't have a big physical runner on the roster (Leon was his backup).

Shonn Greene's Fantasy Football Value in 2009

Look for Shonn to be the main career in goal line situations. He may make a reasonable run for double digit touchdowns with the team he is on. This will make Greene the second most valuable runner on the Jets roster for fantasy, ahead of Leon Washington.

As far as who will receive the bulk of the carries on the team, there is no doubt Thomas Jones will still see the heavy work load. For now Shonn makes for a nice stash away deep in your fantasy draft.

Fantasy Assets:

-Great offensive line
-Good team around him
-Touchdown maker

Fantasy Liability's:
-In a three back committee
-Has a rookie Quarterback
