considering Dickson

JBeall: 
Yeah it’s only Year
3 for Dalton, and made solid strides in his
sophomore campaign. I think some
underperformances in big games are the
catalyst for this “Make or Break” nonsense. I
don’t think he necessitates starter status in
standard leagues just yet, but is definitely
one of the better backups
available

Jackson was having a
decent 2012 before he suffered injury and
missed the last five weeks of the season. I
think Maclin would have been the higher
beneficiary of Chip Kelly’s new offense
rather than Jackson, yet still think the
system should prove dividends. Philly
desperately needs a complement in their
receiving ranks though to take some of the
heat off Jackson

WAY under. I know he
was just a rookie last season, but if you
look at his game logs, Wilson has more
hiccups than highlights. In fact, subtract
the Buffalo outing and the numbers look
pedestrian. With Harvin out at least for the
first half of the season, along with
Seattle’s desire to have Wilson throw LESS
this year, I think Wilson is more of a gamble
than believed

Thinking about
throwing Week 1 so I can get the top waiver
wire pick. Landed me alfred morris last year
(although i didn’t intentionally throw it that
time). Anything bad about this i’m not
seeing??

JBeall: 
as for Moore, I like
him, and he’s always good for three or four
outburts a season. Unfortunately, in standard
leagues, I don’t think he has the stability
I’m looking for from a No. 2 WR or
Flex

Utilize two of your
first three picks on RBs. You can find a
decent WR late in the draft; can’t say the
same for halfbacks

JBeall: 
See above. Unless
it’s Rodgers, Newton, Brees, Manning, I
wouldn’t waste one of my first four
selections on a QB. You can find value in
guys like Brady, Romo, Stafford in the
mid-rounds

JBeall: 
It will be hard to
replicate 120 receptions, yet I think 90
balls is certainly feasible. And while Welker
never garnered much love inside the red zone
in New England, given the lack of viable TEs
in Denver, the diminutive WR’s red-zone
ventures could be on the rise. in the end, I
think his value holds steady, with the arrow
pointing slightly up

JBeall: 
I keep hearing
people gush about Carson Palmer’s presence
making Larry Fitzgerald a top WR again.
Though this holds some validity (I mean, did
you SEE who was under center for Arizona last
season?), I think Floyd is the asset most
likely to see an uptick in value from the
Palmer acquisition. Floyd showed promise at
the end of 2012, and after a slow
assimilation process, seems to be “getting
it” this training camp. I would look at Floyd
as a late-round grab

not crazy about
either. Hillman is currently listed atop the
Broncos depth chart, but I think most foresee
Ball taking the reins eventually in Mile
High. Ingram should benefit with Sean Payton
returning to the sidelines, but battling P.
Thomas and Sproles for time, don’t think he’s
worth the pick-up…so if I had to pick one,
with trepidation – Hillman

JBeall: 
I would go Charles,
for reasons mentioned above. the safe choice
in non-PPR leagues is Lynch, but because of
the keeper rules, I would at least CONSIDER
Martin before going with the KC back. As for
Rice and Spiller – Rice is one of the most
dependable backs at a fickle position, but I
think he’s lost a tad of electricity and B.
Pierce could be taking looks away, and
although Spiller had a breakout 2012, I think
Fred Jackson will get more love in terms of
plays than people expect

JBeall: 
Going back to
Arizona, one name to look out for – Stepfan
Taylor. He’s not particularly mind-blowing at
any feat, but with injuries to Mendenhall and
Ryan Williams, Taylor might fall into carries
with the Cardinals. Like closers in baseball,
having the job is 90 percent of the battle
with backs

JBeall: 
usually I’m against
betting on rookies, but I think Le’Veon Bell
for Pittsburgh has a chance to be a top-10
back. The Steelers line is formidable, and
Bell is extremely sound in pass protection
and the receiving game. Going in the
mid-rounds, make sure Bell is on your
radar

depends on Von
Miller’s status. If Miller is back, DEN is
worth a look as a top-5 unit. HOU’s secondary
is currently a mess, and think they’re going
to disappoint. Nevertheless, think I’d still
go the Texans between the two

JBeall: 
The only WRs worth a
look in the first two rounds are Megatron and
Brandon Marshall. I’ll throw in Jimmy Graham
from the TE position as well. Dez Bryant is
too mercurial for my taste, and AJ Green and
Fitzgerald are more of third-round
picks

we touched on it
above, but Rice is as safe as a bet as there
is at a position that’s always plagued by
injury. I think Pierce gets a decent haul of
the workload this season to keep Rice fresh
for the playoffs, which cuts into his
production and probably his status as a top-5
pick. Yet in the 8-10 range? Love
him

I wouldn’t say
anyone has taken a huge drop, per se, but one
to look out for is Peyton Manning. Denver
line is decent but not great, and already
lost Dan Koppen for the year. keep an eye on
the Broncos during training
camp
