2013 AFC South Fantasy Storylines

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
