"Hash Marks" Harris: Season Recap

And that's why I lost my league championship. Second place will have to do for this season. I hope you all earned your bragging rights for the offseason. I unfortunately did not. Here's a look back at the 2014 fantasy football season and its top scorers at each position.

Quarterbacks

Andrew Luck (Indianapolis) –His last name doesn't describe his game. He is simply that good. Luck threw for 300 yards in a single game 10 times this season, and he totaled 38 passing touchdowns and three rushing touchdowns.

Aaron Rodgers (Green Bay) –After three weeks everyone asked, "What's wrong with the Packers?" Well, Rodgers answered those questions with another tremendous season. 10 times this season he threw multiple touchdowns in a single game without an interception.

Russell Wilson (Seattle) –3,200 passing yards and 20 passing touchdowns is a solid season for a QB. Add 842 rushing yards and six rushing touchdowns and you're talking about a monster fantasy football season. Wilson is a gamer and he has his team primed for another Super Bowl run.

Running Backs

DeMarco Murray (Dallas) –The NFL's leading rusher and yards from scrimmage leader has had one of the best seasons by a running back in NFL history. He's recorded 11 games of 100+ rushing yards is tied for the league lead with 12 rushing scores.

**

Le'Veon Bell (Pittsburgh) – **It has been years since the Steelers had a great running back but Pittsburgh has no complaints. Bell's breakout season is one for the ages in Steelers' history. His 2,115 yards from scrimmage is a new single-season team record and he's totaled 11 touchdowns.

Marshawn Lynch (Seattle) –The man they call "Beast Mode" had an amazing run last Sunday night to cap off another awesome season. Lynch has rushed for 1,246 yards and is tied for the league lead with 12 rushing scores. He also has four receiving scores on the season.

Wide Receivers

Antonio Brown (Pittsburgh) –Brown has had one of the finest seasons by a WR in league history. He will end up with the second-most receptions in a single season in NFL history. His 1,570 receiving yards are a single-season team record. His 12 touchdowns are tied for the single-season team record.

Demaryius Thomas (Denver) –103 receptions for 1,504 yards and 11 scores is a mighty fine stat line. Thomas had a seven-game stretch earlier this season with at least seven receptions and 100 receiving yards and is heating up yet again as his team gets ready for the postseason.

Jordy Nelson (Green Bay) –Nelson has been the beneficiary of stellar play by his QB Aaron Rodgers. Nelson has 92 receptions for 1,433 yards and 13 touchdowns so far this season. He's earning that big contract he signed in June.

Tight Ends

**

Rob Gronkowski (New England) – **It's not even close folks. Gronk is the best tight end in the game: 82 receptions for 1,124 yards and 12 touchdowns. And he wasn't even at full health until around Week 5. Imagine if he was 100% all 16 games.

Greg Olsen (Carolina) –Olsen has put together a fine season and his team still has a shot to make the postseason. Olsen's 82 receptions for 981 yards and six touchdowns puts him as the second-best tight end this season. That's saying a lot considering Gronk is No. 1.

Antonio Gates (San Diego) –Many thought Gates was slipping but he did just the opposite. He has totaled 65 receptions for 754 yards with 12 receiving scores. San Diego needs a win and they are in the postseason, and he will be the x-factor this week in determining his team's fate.

Defense/Special Teams

Buffalo Bills – If Buffalo had a franchise QB, they would be in the postseason right now. Their defense and special teams almost made that happen. The Bills lead the league with 50 sacks. They have 19 interceptions. Their defense/special teams units have scored four touchdowns.

Philadelphia Eagles –Another team that will miss the postseason, but their defense and special teams groups were rock solid all season. The units combined for 10 touchdowns, have forced 22 fumbles and are second in the league with 49 sacks.

Houston Texans – J.J. Watt has put up MVP-like numbers, 17.5 sacks and five total touchdowns. But the Texans' defense has really come on strong and their success has put them in position to make the postseason. It's not all Watt, but really it is.

Kicker

Stephen Gostkowski (New England) –He leads the league in points yet again, and he has had double-digit field goals in 11 games so far this season.

Cody Parkey (Philadelphia) –Parkey has made 30 field goals so far this season and all 50 PATs in his rookie season. Not too shabby.

Adam Vinatieri (Indianapolis) –The oldest player in the league is 28-of-28 on FGs and 47-of-47 on PATs. Take that.
