Other divisions so far: NFC North, AFC North, NFC East, AFC South, NFC South


1. Chris Johnson – A 29-year-old (in September) running back with an aversion to contact and an inability to break tackles. Johnson is going to drive Rex Ryan crazy.

2. Sammy Watkins – Fantastic real-life NFL prospect, but E.J. Manuel’s limitations and the Bills’ run-first attitude cap opportunity.

3. Knowshon Moreno – An obvious product of Peyton Manning last season. Moreno projects to run behind Lamar Miller all year.

4. Jace Amaro – Going from Texas Tech’s spread scheme to the NFL is going to be too much for Amaro to handle initially.

5. Tom Brady – Now 37 with arm strength concerns and Gronk worries. Patriots could be shifting toward more power running.


1. Mike Wallace – Bill Lazor knows how to take a speed receiver and make him a dominator. He helped do it in Philly last year with DeSean Jackson.

2. Fred Jackson – Nothing appears to have changed since last season. F-Jax will be getting the passing-down and red-zone work while C.J. Spiller watches.

3. Danny Amendola – A severe groin injury completely crippled Amendola’s first season as a Patriot. He has so much room to improve.

4. Ryan Tannehill – Carried the Dolphins on his back last year despite inept scheming, a bottom-barrel offensive line and zero running game.

5. Lamar Miller – Not physical at all, but miles ahead of Knowshon Moreno for the LeSean McCoy role in the Dolphins’ new Eagles-like offense.

Late-round fliers

1. James White – Getting talked up as a three-down back as he’s in the midst of big camp. Likely backup to both Shane Vereen and Stevan Ridley.

2. Michael Vick – Legs are still capable of amassing monster fantasy numbers if given opportunity. Knows the Marty Mornhinweg scheme far better than Geno.

3. Chris Ivory – Will get the goal-line work and could get even more if Chris Johnson faceplants. Ivory is actually a grounder ‘n pounder unlike CJ?K.

4. Kenbrell Thompkins – If Aaron Dobson can’t get over his foot injury, Thompkins is the favorite to start on the outside.

5. Jarvis Landry – The second-round rookie is impressing at camp and should be pushing Brandon Gibson for slot snaps by Week 1.
