The Most Meaningful Fantasy Football Surprises

By Melissa Donnelly

The 2009 fantasy football season has been a very interesting one through the first six weeks of the year. We’ve seen many breakout players that no one really expected, and we’ve definitely seen our share of busts as well. Today we’re going to focus on the overachievers of the fantasy football world.

It’s interesting how it all works, but that’s what we get when it comes to the wild world of fantasy football. Without further ado, here are a few players who’ve been very pleasant surprises so far through the first part of the season. These are just a few of the many great overachievers we’ve witnessed thus far.

First of all, how about Pierre Garcon in Indy? Did anyone see this coming? I know that I didn’t, and while much of it has to do with the injury to Anthony Gonzalez, this guy is suddenly one of the best WRs in football.

Garcon has been magnificent in filling the void left by Anthony Gonzalez, and Peyton Manning seems to be building the chemistry between the two by the week. You wonder why the Colts are so good this year, and you have to acknowledge the fact that Garcon partly responsible.

Moving on to running backs, we have to give some respect to Cedric Benson. This disgruntled Chicago Bears backup finally got a chance to get the starting role he knew he deserved, and he’s been phenomenal.

With a reinvigorated offense in Cincinnati, Benson has been the perfect complement to Carson Palmer’s passing game and the Bengals have a winning record as a result.

Matt Schaub has been lights out at QB. With numerous games in excess of 300 passing yards, he’s been one of the most prolific quarterbacks in pro football. Did you really expect this out of Schaub?

Not I, said the fantasy football GM. Schaub has been brilliant and was a steal in all drafts.
