I admit that in my two fantasy football drafts so far this year I did not draft Jason Avant or Mario Manningham. But my ears perked up when I heard these glowing observations of two former Wolverines.
Nate Ravitz on Jason Avant during the August 25th episode of the ESPN Fantasy Focus Football Podcast:
”If were not going to see Steve Smith or Jeremy Maclin at the start of the season. The opportunities increase for Jason Avant. Avant caught 41 passes last year and Philadelphia starts the season with two road games in domes against St. Louis and Atlanta. Especially in PPR formats, you can even start Avant at the beginning of the season. Avant has been a solid player in his career, has a decent big body. Even though he has been dealing with tendinitis in his knees, it hasn’t bothered him to much.”
