Top Fantasy Football Players in the NFC

Top Fantasy Football Players in the NFC
Last week we looked at the best fantasy players in the AFC, now let's take a look at the top fantasy players in the NFC.

Arizona Cardinals (5-11)
The Cardinals boast one of the NFL’s finest offenses. Matt Leinart has weapons galore and could be in line for a huge season.
Larry Fitzgerald (WR)
Anquan Boldin (WR)
Matt Leinart (QB)

Atlanta Falcons (7-9)
The Falcons are a bit of an unknown right now. Michael Vick has legal issues and there are two running backs who could win the starting gig.
Warrick Dunn (RB)
Michael Vick (QB)
Jerious Norwood (RB)

Carolina Panthers (8-8)
The Panthers will bring back their explosive offensive unit. Steve Smith is as combustible as anyone in the game and DeAngelo Williams has the potential to breakout.
Steve Smith (WR)
DeAngelo Williams (RB)
Jake Delhomme (QB)

Chicago Bears (13-3)
With Cedric Benson taking over the running back position and Rex Grossman in charge of the passing game, this year could be boom or bust for the Bears’ offense.

Bernard Berrian (WR)
Muhsin Muhammed (WR)

Dallas Cowboys (9-7)
Can Tony Romo bounce back and prove to be an NFL quality quarterback? If so, the Cowboys could be one of the better teams in the league next season.
Terrell Owens (WR)
Marion Barber (RB)
Tony Romo (QB)

Detroit Lions (3-13)
With exciting rookie Calvin Johnson entering the fold, the Lions passing game looks as healthy as it has in years. Jon Kitna could flourish with the arsenal available for him.
Roy Williams (WR)
Calvin Johnson (WR)
Jon Kitna (QB)

Green Bay Packers (8-8)
The Packers have some nice young pieces to put around Brett Favre and Donald Driver. However, expect the two old guys to carry the load for Green Bay.
Donald Driver (WR)
Brett Favre (QB)
Greg Jennings (WR)

Minnesota Vikings (6-10)
With an unproven passing game, expect the Vikings to run and run some more. Adrian Peterson has superstar potential and should earn carries rather quickly.
Adrian Peterson (RB)
Chester Taylor (RB)
Troy Williamson (WR)

New Orleans Saints (10-6)
After a magical run last season, the Saints will try to build on that this year. Reggie Bush had a strong second half and could really shine this season.
Reggie Bush (RB)
Drew Brees (QB)
Marques Colston (WR)

New York Giants (8-8)
With Tiki Barber retired, the Giants have more questions marks than usual heading into the season. Brandon Jacobs has been a good reserve but can he be a starter?
Plaxico Burress (WR)
Brandon Jacobs (RB)
Jeremy Shockey (TE)

Philadelphia Eagles (10-6)
The Eagles have a lot of fragile parts offensively. Donovan McNabb is recovering from a torn ACL and Brian Westbrook is seemingly always on the brink of injury.
Brian Westbrook (RB)
Donovan McNabb (QB)
L.J. Smith (TE)

San Francisco 49ers (7-9)
Frank Gore was a stud last season. However, he’s not the most durable back and teams will have a year of game tape to try to figure out a way to slow him down
Frank Gore (RB)
Darrell Jackson (WR)
Vernon Davis (TE)

Seattle Seahawks (9-7)
The Seahawks have the potential to have the best scoring offense in the league. However, that depends on the health of Shaun Alexander and Matt Hasselbeck.
Shaun Alexander (RB)
Matt Hasselbeck (QB)
Deion Branch (WR)

St. Louis Rams (8-8)
Steven Jackson, Tory Holt and Marc Bulger form one of the best one-two-three punches in the league. They can light up the scoreboard in a hurry.
Steven Jackson (RB)
Tory Holt (WR)
Marc Bulger (QB)

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (4-12)
The Buccaneers need some unexpected production to have a capable offense this season. It’s also a make or break season for Carnell Williams.
Joey Galloway (WR)
Carnell Williams (RB)
Jeff Garcia (QB)

Washington Redskin (5-11)
Clinton Portis and Ladell Betts are a lethal duo in the backfield and Santana Moss has big play ability. Whether this offense will have chemistry is the main issue.

Santana Moss (WR)
Ladell Betts (RB)
