On fantasy draft day 2012, I’d say that about 92 percent of fantasy footballers had never even heard of Brandon Myers. In his first three seasons, he had 30 career catches. Myers exploded in 2012, finishing with 79 catches, including 14 in one game. The Raiders decided to let Myers walk.

Welcome to New Jersey, Mr. Myers. In 2012 the New York Giants picked up veteran Martellus Bennett and he had 55 catches. Myers isn’t quite on Bennett’s level in terms of athleticism, but he knows how to get open. With Eli tossing the rock, Myers could catch 70 passes.
