The 2012 season is just days away from kicking off and this looks like an exciting season with a lot of big-name rookies expected to make a huge impact. But you can’t talk about those rookies without the inevitable comparisons. Here’s a look at some of the top rookies and how they compare to their contemporaries.
Could Tim Tebow become the first fantasy football running back eligible at the quarterback position?
Can Shonn Greene still produce big for fantasy football owners even though Tim Tebow will be a red-zone threat?

After a great workout with the Saints, Randy Moss could sign in New Orleans and it’s hard to think of a better fantasy fit for the veteran receiver.
Jermichael Finley might have a history of frustrating fantasy owners, but with a new contract that will keep him with one of the NFL’s most productive offenses, he should remain a viable option at tight end.

Tim Tebow is the presumptive starter for the Broncos in 2012, but the team has plans to bring in other QBs as insurance.
Andre Johnson is out yet again, but fantasy owners shouldn’t quit on the talented wideout just yet.
As James Starks struggles to recover from an ankle injury, Ryan Grant has a chance to help fantasy owners in a big way against Kansas City.
With both Laurent Robinson and Miles Austin back at Cowboys practice, Robinson’s fantasy value is in flux. But fantasy owners could do worse than to take a chance on Robinson for another week.
Ahmad Bradshaw could return Sunday. That’s good news for both the Giants and fantasy owners, especially with injuries to WRs potentially limiting New York’s offense.

With the fantasy regular season winding down, each lineup decision becomes a little more important. It also makes any Fantasy Faux Pas a little harder to swallow.
