2013 NFC South Fantasy Storylines

Fowler analyzes three fantasy football storylines coming out of the NFC South in 2013.

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

1) Aside from Cam Newton, Steve Smith and Greg Olsen, do the Panthers have any fantasy talent owners can rely on week-to-week?

  • Nobody trusts the two-headed monster of Stewart and Williams, but somebody is always forced to take them
  • Brandon LaFell had moments in 2012 where owners believed he could help their team
  • It's Cam and Olsen until other evidence comes to light

2) Will Steven Jackson have an opportunity to become a top six or seven fantasy running back in the pass-happy Falcons' offense?

  • Falcons' beat reporter said don't be surprised if you continue to see Jacquizz Rodgers and Jason Snelling get touches in 2013
  • Jackson should receive more work inside the 10 than he did while a member of the St. Louis Rams

3) Could Lance Moore see enough targets to warrant WR2 status in 2013?

  • Finished with a career high in receiving yards in 2012 (six touchdowns)
  • Averaged 16.0 yards per reception
  • Still behind Marques Colston and Jimmy Graham
