Fantasy Football Comeback Players Include Desean Jackson, Chris Johnson & Philip Rivers

We’ve talked sleepers and we’ve talked busts, but now it’s time to take another step up the ladder to identify players coming off a down year that we think will bounce back in a big way.

For the most part, we tried to stay away from guys who spent the better portion of the 2011 season on the sidelines due to injury, so don’t expect to see the likes of Darren McFadden and Jay Cutler listed below. Instead, we wanted to identify players that for some reason or another failed to meet expectations in 2011.

Before we jump into the analysis, I wanted to remind you guys to sign up for the Week 1 FanDuel fantasy challenge. It’s free to enter and features a $1,000 prize pool. Plus, if you take me down you get to spend a whole week talking trash on twitter.
