After hitting on the AFC, I’ll be looking at my questions for NFC training camps and their implications for dynasty leagues.


  • Dallas Cowboys - I’m really intrigued to see what new offensive coordinator Kellen Moore means for the Cowboys passing attack. Specifically, how will Michael Gallup be affected? Currently carrying a DLF ADP of 128, Gallup and Dak Prescott have been working on their deep-ball chemistry this offseason. A couple of big games early on and Gallup’s ADP could easily push him inside the top-100.
  • New York Giants - Uhhh, I mean...Daniel Jones, I guess? The Giants won’t be competing this year, so there’s no reason to not put Jones on the field at some point. Will the Giants continue to be the butt of our jokes or will Daniel Jones give us some faith in their passing game going forward?
  • Philadelphia Eagles - Does Miles Sanders put the “Eagles have always used a committee approach!” narrative to rest? The most recent reports out of Eagles camp have Sanders as fully healthy following his hamstring issue during OTAs and minicamp. Sanders has a three-down skill set, and his early 5th-round ADP will be a massive value if he’s their clear lead back.
  • Washington Redskins - This one is simple: is Dwayne Haskins the real deal? If Haskins can prove to be Washington’s answer at quarterback, it will obviously aid the rest of the offense (Derrius Guice, their pass catchers, etc).
  • Chicago Bears - Another rookie running back to look forward to - can David Montgomery keep Mike Davis on the bench and take away some passing work from Tarik Cohen? Cohen is too dynamic to relegate to a pure “satellite back” role, but Montgomery is a much better receiver than Jordan Howard was.
  • Detroit Lions - How much work will Kerryon Johnson command? Earlier in the offseason, it seemed as though the Lions were going to favor a split backfield. Recent reports, however, suggest there won’t be an arbitrary limit to Johnson’s touches and Detroit will ride the hot hand. The surprising release of Theo Riddick certainly points to increased passing game usage, however.
  • Green Bay Packers - There are two glaring questions for the Packers in terms of shaping dynasty values. 1) Does Aaron Jones finally stay healthy and become the lead back so many want him to be? We all know about the impending greatness of the 2020 class. Could Green Bay look to replace Jones if he flops? 2) Who is Aaron Rodger’s number two receiver, and does it really matter? Both Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Geronimo Allison are outside of the top-100 in DLF’s ADP. If one is the clear favorite of Rodgers and commands a significantly higher target share, they should vault themselves into the top six rounds.
  • Minnesota Vikings - I hope I don’t have a running back fascination, but the big question for me is can Dalvin Cook put together a healthy season. Despite two injury-plagued seasons, Cook currently sits in the mid-second round. One more, however, and he has to start freefalling, right?
  • Atlanta Falcons - Can Calvin Ridley take the next step and separate himself from Mohamed Sanu? In 2018, Ridley and Sanu finished the year two targets, two catches, and 17 yards apart, with Sanu leading in each category except touchdowns. Ridley is currently being drafted as if it has already happened with an ADP of 43.5, which feels like he has already reached his ceiling.
  • Carolina Panthers - The Panthers season begins and ends with Cam Newton and his shoulder. D.J. Moore is a popular second-year-breakout candidate. Curtis Samuel is a “sleeper” favorite. If Newton can stay healthy and support the plethora of weapons he has, he’ll climb back up dynasty rankings from his current spot as the tenth quarterback off the board.
  • New Orleans Saints - Another offense, another WR2 question. Will Tre’Quan Smith take the next step in his development and build off the flashes he showed in 2018? The Saints could really use Smith so they don’t have to roll out their rag-tag group from last season.
  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Is Chris Godwin the #truth? Similar to Calvin Ridley, Godwin is being drafted as if his breakout is guaranteed and inevitable. I’m a believer and for sure a part of said cohort, but there’s definitely risk with his projection.
  • Arizona Cardinals - What will this Kliff Kingsbury offense look like and can Kyler Murrary deliver on the high expectation the fantasy community has? The dude hasn’t played a snap of meaningful NFL football and he currently sits as the QB6 in drafts. The next part of this question (assuming a successful offense) is who is the beneficiary of Murray’s passes? Christian Kirk appears to be the favorite as of now, but a lot remains to be seen.
  • Los Angeles Rams - I’m not sure training camp will answer the obvious Todd Gurley question, so I’ll go elsewhere with this one. Can Sean McVay redesign his offense after it was exploited by the Patriots in the Super Bowl? The book is out on how to stifle Jared Goff and the passing game. The Rams’ “Big Three” have top-50 price tags with Brandin Cooks, Cooper Kupp, and Robert Woods being drafted at 26.83, 45.83, and 46, respectively.
  • San Francisco 49ers - What in the world is going on with this backfield? All three running backs (Tevin Coleman, Jerick McKinnon, Matt Breida) will have roles and receive touches. Do any separate themselves sans injury? Head coach Kyle Shanahan somehow made their running game fantasy-relevant despite trailing in the majority of their games and having C.J. Beathard and Nick Mullens at the helm. Magical stuff.
  • Seattle Seahawks - Considering their offensive identity, the question has to be how do the ‘Hawks split touches between Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny? Unless one of them suffers an injury forcing them to miss significant time, or just completely falls on their face, both will be heavily involved.
