Steve Breaston as a Keeper

By now everyone in fantasy football has heard of Steve Breaston. The second year receiver out of Michigan burst onto the scene upon the injury to Anquan Boldin, but why would you want to hang onto him after Boldin’s return to the line up?

Breaston has put up more than respectable numbers in his four starts this season. He has 28 receptions for 373 yards in 6 games and 4 starts. That makes him 27th in the NFL, ahead of names like Laveranues Coles, Randy Moss, and even Anquan Boldin. He has also added 465 returns yards for the Cardinals so you can add that to his value in leagues that score kick-return yards.

Remember, Boldin wanted a new deal, a trade, or both after Larry Fitzgerald signed his monster deal last off-season, and that Boldin and Fitzgerald have not lined up opposite each in any of the four plus years they have been together, combining to miss 18 games since the start of the 2004 season.

Boldin may not be in Arizona next year, and even if he is Breaston has firmly planted himself as the third option in one of the most prolific passing offenses in the league and is poised to step in for Boldin or Fitzgerald in the event they are injured. This makes him a solid keeper in deep leagues and a must keep in dynasty leagues.

Here is a nice highlight reel to show you what he can do:
