    Fred Jackson

    The hate is this- while Jackson has marginal value as a flex play in 10-12 team leagues, he has virtually no upside. Guys like Jackson have some usefulness, and he's a nice back-up to plug in during your bye-week and feel safe that you're going to get 8-12 points.

    The problem is that he's getting drafted ahead of guys like Beanie Wells, Tim Hightower and Reggie Bush, not to mention WRs like AJ Green. Now if I were handicapping, I'd argue that Jackson will likely outperform all but one or two from this group, but he easily has the lowest ceiling out of everybody listed. Late in the draft your should be looking for guys with homerun potential. If Tim Hightower or Beanie Wells hit, that could win you your league. Fantasy Freddy just doesn't have that upside.
