Here are three 2013 fantasy football storylines coming out of the AFC South I'll be paying attention to during training camp and through the end of August:

1) What should fantasy owners make of the Colts' signing Ahmad Bradshaw and Darrius Heyward-Bey this offseason?

  • Ahmad Bradshaw rushed for over 1,000 yards with six scores despite missing a couple games in 2012.
  • Heyward-Bey replaces Donnie Avery in the passing game - Avery was targeted 116 times last season.
  • Still, Heyward-Bey's inconsistent production with Oakland leaves him third in the pecking order behind Reggie Wayne and T.Y. Hilton

2) What do we make of Maurice Jones-Drew's fantasy football value in 2013?

  • I think it's funny we're even discussing this
  • Before missing 10 games last season (foot), MJD rushed for over 1,300 yards three straight seasons
  • New "zone blocking scheme" in Jacksonville - same one that gave Darren McFadden fits in Oakland last season

3) Who will be the Houston Texans' second wide reciever to start the season?

  • We all know about Arian Foster, Andre Johnson and Owen Daniels
  • Former No. 2 WR, Kevin Walter, now with the Titans
  • DeAndre Hopkins, the Texans first round pick, could line up opposite Johnson Week 1
  • He recorded over 1,400 receiving yards with 15 touchdowns his junior season at Clemson
