2013 NFC East Fantasy Storylines

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

1) Will Robert Griffin show us enough in training camp and will he play in any preseason games to prove how healthy he is?

  • I see a lot of risk involved in draft RG3, Pierre Garcon, Fred Davis, and even Alfred Morris (ahem, Mike Shanahan)
  • Jumping jacks are great, but I think fantasy owners want to see RG3 at full game speed during late-August to feel comfortable
  • Garcon did not have offseason surgery to fix his foot

2) Aside from Dez Bryant, is the Dallas Cowboys’ offense undervalued from a fantasy perspective?

  • Tony Romo’s fantasy stock has dropped due to the 2012 quarterback class
  • DeMarco Murray’s injury history has stunted his growth in a backfield that IS NOT A RBBC
  • I think it’s time for ALL owners to embrace Miles Austin as a WR3 (and yet, some owners, out of habit, will draft him as a WR2)

3) How much of an impact can tight end Brandon Myers make in the Giants’ system?

  • Looking back, Martellus Bennett, Jake Ballard and Kevin Boss had some above-average fantasy value with Eli throwing them the ball
  • Once inside the red zone, Manning was comfortable targeting his tight end
  • Myers made a name for himself last season in Oakland with Carson Palmer
