Fantasy football books, magazines and other experts are likely to forget a key ingredient in their recipe for building a fantasy football champion next season. This ingredient is Curry, Ronald Curry, a fourth-year recipient for the Oakland Raiders. Now, Curry sent out some notable fantasy football numbers a year ago, but they were not the kind of numbers that make the average fantasy football player struggle to pick him in the top three rounds of their fantasy draft. This can be a critical oversight.

Curry might have jumped out of fantasy football information sheets if it weren't for Randy Moss' arrival at the Raider Fold. With Moss as the obvious new number one, and Jerry Porter just got a new deal with Oakland, it looks like there may not be enough football for Curry to even match last year's decent stats. Do not let the above information fool you as it will be the ill-prepared competitors in your fantasy football league.

Curry is 25 years old but only has two full years in the National Football League as he only appeared in one game during his rookie season. Most wide receivers learn to handle NFL defense in their third seasons. The great Marvin Harrison did not start putting big catch and yardage numbers up for his fourth season. Now, Ronald Curry may not be able to send that kind of fantasy football numbers from Harrison or Moss, but he will almost certainly improve on last year's impressive performance.

Remember, Curry only played in 12 games last year. He caught 50 balls for 679 yards and six TDs. He averages six catches and over 80 yards in his last four games. Moss and Porter probably also draw the cover, so Curry finds his openings. He will rarely see doubles, while Moss will see plenty. When the Raiders reach the red zone, the defense will see Moss, and Curry will be able to use his good size to overwhelm linebackers and safety conditions.

So there is a very good chance that Curry will improve in all categories. If you're healthy, expect 8-11 TDs, 65-75 catches and 800 yards - huge fantasy football stats for a guy who's likely to be your second or third receiver,
