Top Fantasy Football Players in the AFC

Top Fantasy Football Players in the AFC
With the NFL Draft behind us and rosters beginning to get set, let's take a look at the top fantasy football players in the AFC.

Baltimore Ravens (13-3)
The Ravens acquired McGahee from the Bills to improve their running game. Look for McGahee to be featured in their offense, with Todd Heap being their red zone threat.

Todd Heap (TE)
Steve McNair (QB)

Buffalo Bills (7-9)
Gone is McGahee, but rookie Marshawn Lynch should be able to handle the load at the running back position. Lee Evans is growing into becoming one of the best wideouts in the league.

Marshawn Lynch (RB)
JP Losman (QB)

Cincinnati Bengals (8-8)
The Bengals are stocked with quality fantasy options. Rudi and Chad Johnson are top notch players at their position and Carson Palmer might be the best fantasy QB in the NFL.

Carson Palmer (QB)

Cleveland Browns (4-12)
With the quarterback position still undecided, expect Jamal Lewis to get the ball a lot. Braylon Edwards and Kellen Winslow are explosive targets for whoever wins the QB job.

Kellen Winslow (TE)

Denver Broncos (9-7)
The Broncos brought in Travis Henry and expect him to be their everyday running back. Javon Walker is a big play wide receiver who should get the ball plenty from Jay Cutler.

Jay Culter (QB)

Houston Texans (6-10)
The Texans’ offense underwent a makeover this offseason. Ahman Green comes over from the Packers and Matt Schaub was brought in from the Falcons.
Andre Johnson (WR)
Ahman Green (RB)
Matt Schaub (QB)

Indianapolis Colts (12-4)
The Colts have perhaps the league’s most explosive offense. With Super Bowl winner Peyton Manning at the helm, the sky is the limit for the Colts against any defense.

Marvin Harrison (WR)
Joseph Addai (RB)

Jacksonville Jaguars (8-8)
Maurice Jones-Drew had a jaw dropping rookie season and will look to build upon that in his sophomore campaign. Fred Taylor is the other half of a dynamic backfield.

Byron Leftwich (QB)

Kansas City Chiefs (9-7)
The Chiefs will look to Larry Johnson to again carry the load. Tony Gonzalez is one of the best tight ends of all-time and he still has some gas left in the tank.
Larry Johnson (RB)
Tony Gonzales (TE)
Eddie Kennison (WR)

Miami Dolphins (6-10)
The Dolphins will have a new look with quarterback Trent Green at the helm. Ronnie Brown and Chris Chambers both have untapped potential.

Chris Chambers (WR)
Trent Green (QB)

New England Patriots (12-4)
With Laurence Maroney now the main man in the running game, expect big things out of the second year player. Tom Brady and Randy Moss will try to become a dynamic duo in the passing game.
Laurence Maroney (RB)
Tom Brady (QB)
Randy Moss (WR)

New York Jets (10-6)
The Jets don’t have a high flying offense, but they do have many steady players on that side of the field. Thomas Jones was brought in from Chicago to give the backfield some power.
Thomas Jones (RB)
Laveranues Coles (WR)
Chad Pennington (QB)

Oakland Raiders (2-14)
The Raiders will try to rebound from a horrible season. Many question marks remain offensively for Oakland, but rookie JaMarcus Russell has the skills to come in and succeed right away.
LaMont Jordan (RB)
Jerry Porter (WR)
JaMarcus Russell (QB)

San Diego Chargers (14-2)
The number one offensive threat in the league is no doubt LaDainian Tomlinson. Antonio Gates is perhaps the best tight end in the NFL, while Philip Rivers has proven to be a quality QB.

Antonio Gates (TE)

Pittsburgh Steelers (8-8)
Last season, Willie Parker had a great campaign and he’ll try to keep it up this season. Ben Roethlisberger will lean on Hines Ward to help bounce back this season.

Hines Ward (WR)
Ben Roethlisberger(QB)

Tennessee Titans (8-8)
Although the Titans lost a lot of key offensive players in free agency, they still have Vince Young. And with Vince Young, seemingly nothing is impossible.

Chris Henry (RB)
Brandon Jones (WR)
