I know, I know, Alexander’s knees have seen the knife five times
Averaged 17.8 yards per reception with seven TDs in 10 games with the Chargers last season
Malcom Floyd, Antonio Gates and Ryan Mathews = injury risk
At 6-foot-5, Alexander is a big body that Philip Rivers loves to target and enters the season as a potential top target
2) Chris Ivory – Jets
Shonn Green now with Tennessee after back-to-back 1,000-yard rushing seasons in New York (yeah, I found it hard to believe, too)
Ivory is likely the Jets’ RB1 with Mike Goodson a likely candidate for suspension following gun and pot charges during the offseason
Ivory has dealt with a variety of leg injuries over the past few season, but when on the field has impressed fantasy owners who wanted to see more of him
Averaged over five yards per carry in his career
What else do the New York Jets have on offense?
3) Carson Palmer – Cardinals
The Good: Palmer passed for over 4,000 yards with 22 touchdowns (14 INTs) with Oakland last season
The Bad: Cardinals’ rushing attack a little suspect with Rashard Mendenhall leading the way
The Ugly: Arizona’s offensive line allowed the most sacks last season (58), but tried to improve via the Draft and bringing in veterans from other teams
The Good (again): Palmer managed to pass for all those yards and touchdowns within a cruddy Raiders’ offense (Brandon Myers was his best receiver). With Larry Fitzgerald as his top target, Palmer could exceed expectations in year one with the birds – that is, if his offensive line keeps his jersey clean.
