After the first six weeks of the 2010 season, I posted my midseason fantasy football awards.  Below are my final awards, with those who also made the initial list in blue.  Notice how many names are repeated–a sign that a hot start to the season often results in a strong finish, or vice versa.

First-Team All-Fantasy

  • Quarterback:  Michael Vick

Not only was Vick the leading scorer in the league, but his 25.5 points-per-game was incredible.  His rushing ability gives him tremendous upside that other quarterback simply don’t possess.

  • Running Back:  Arian Foster

Foster absolutely dominated the rest of the NFL in points.  He totaled 383 in PPR leagues–an incredible 94 more than the second place running back.

  • Wide Receiver:  Roddy White

White beat out the second-place receiver by a ridiculous 26 points.  He’ll be a force for awhile in Atlanta.

  • Tight End:  Jason Witten

Witten scored 240 points–56 more than the second place tight end.

Second-Team All-Fantasy

  • Quarterback:  Aaron Rodgers

Rodgers would have been a first-teamer if it wasn’t for Vick.  Now, the two get a chance to face off against one another in the Wild Card round of the playoffs.

  • Running Back:  LeSean McCoy

McCoy’s 78 receptions allowed him to be 3rd in fantasy scoring among running backs despite not playing in Week 17.

  • Wide Receiver:  Brandon Lloyd

Lloyd scored in eight games and crossed the 1oo-yard mark six times.

  • Tight End:  Antonio Gates

Gates was dominating the tight end position before he got injured late in the season, but he still finished second in points.

Third-Team All-Fantasy

  • Quarterback:  Tom Brady

Brady is undoubtedly the MVP of the league, just not fantasy.

  • Running Back:  Peyton Hillis

Hillis came out of nowhere, taking advantage of an early-season injury to Montario Hardesty and the trade of Jerome Harrison to finish second in points among RBs.

  • Wide Receiver: Dwayne Bowe

I reluctantly traded Bowe in the preseason, but I got LeSean McCoy in return, so it was worth it.

  • Tight End:  Vernon Davis

Davis didn’t have the same type of season as last year, but he still was productive enough to finish third in points among tight ends.

First-Team All-Shockers

  • Quarterback:  Michael Vick

It isn’t shocking to see what Vick is doing after being given an opportunity, but it is surprising to see any quarterback who began the season on the bench leading all scorers.

  • Running Back:  Peyton Hillis

See above.

  • Wide Receiver:  Brandon Lloyd

No one saw this coming.

  • Tight End:  Marcedes Lewis

Lewis always had the talent to excel, but Mike Thomas’ emergence outside really opened things up for the former UCLA Bruin.

Second Team All-Shockers

  • Quarterback:  Josh Freeman

I love this kid, and he’s really much more valuable in real life than in fantasy football.

  • Running Back:  Darren McFadden

McFadden finished eighth in points among running backs in PPR leagues despite not playing in three games.

  • Wide Receiver:  Steve Johnson

Johnson did this all on his own, without any help from God.

  • Tight End:  Ben Watson

Watson didn’t have a monster season–he averaged 9.8 points-per-game–but he still finished ninth among tight ends.

First-Team All-Duds

  • Quarterback:  Brett Favre

What a dumbass.

  • Running Back:  Shonn Greene

I predicted in the preaseason that Greene wouldn’t be a top 30 back, but he still went in the first round of some leagues.  He finished 42nd.

  • Wide Receiver:  Michael Crabtree

Everything seemed to be set up for Crabtree to have a breakout season, but he finished 36th in points among receivers.

  • Tight End:  Owen Daniels

Daniels averaged just 4.4 points over the initial seven games of the season.

Second-Team All-Duds

  • Quarterback:  Kevin Kolb

Kolb was a big sleeper coming into the season and owners had to spend a relatively high draft pick to secure him, but he obviously couldn’t beat out Vick.

  • Running Back:  DeAngelo Williams

Williams’ season was really ruined by injuries, but it would have been tough for him to get anything going in Carolina’s offense anyway.

  • Wide Receiver:  Chad Ochocinco

Ochocinco finished 34th–behind Danny Amendola.

  • Tight End:  Greg Olsen

Olsen’s value was sure to drop in Mike Martz’s offense, but who would have thought he would tally only 6.4 points-per-game in PPR leagues?
