Hillman Ball

Ronnie Hillman and Montee Ball

The Job: Denver Broncos #1 RB

Candidates: Ronnie Hillman, Montee Ball, Knowshon Moreno

Favorite: Hillman/Ball

Who will win the Job: Ball

The Broncos spent a 2nd Round pick on Montee Ball so one would think he’s gonna get a shot to show what he can do. Ronnie Hillman is a smaller back who will be used more on 3rd down and in pass situations. Knowshon Moreno is the darkhorse in this competition as he performed pretty well down the stretch last season. Regardless of who wins the job, the winner will have tremendous fantasy upside as the Broncos figure to be one of the highest scoring teams in the league this season.

Nick Foles Michael Vick

Michael Vick and Nick Foles

The Job: Philadelphia Eagles #1 QB

Candidates: Michael Vick, Nick Foles, Matt Barkley

Favorite: Vick

WINNER: Vick

The Eagles QB job is up for grabs in the preseason, whoever wins it, should have solid fantasy value entering 2013. If Michael Vick were a lock to win the competition, the Eagles QB job would vault to the top of this list as Vick’s skill set seems to fit perfectly with what Chip Kelly is trying to do in Philly. If Nick Foles wins the competition, this job probably falls down the list a bit as he doesn’t have the same upside that Vick can provide because of his legs.

 

Green Bay Packers

 

 

Lacy Franklin

Eddie Lacy and Johnathan Franklin

The Job: Green Bay Packers #1 RB

Candidates: DuJuan Harris, Eddie Lacy, Johnathan Franklin, James Starks

Favorite: Harris/Lacy/Franklin

Who will win the Job: Lacy

The Packers RB job is totally up for grabs and as many as 4 players can still be considered in the mix. Our favorite to win the battle is Alabama rookie Eddie Lacy. Lacy was a second round pick and you have to figure he will get the first opportunity to win the job. While Head Coach Mike McCarthy has already shown his support for DuJuan Harris, it’s hard to see him being the every down, between the tackles back. Harris is more likely to be a gadget type player in the mold of Darren Sproles. 4th Round pick Johnathan Franklin out of UCLA is still in the discussion, however, it’s more likely his impact comes on special teams returning kickoffs and on 3rd downs as a pass catching option.

Daryl Richardson 2

Daryl Richardson

The Job: St. Louis Rams #1 RB

Candidates: Daryl Richardson, Isaiah Pead, Zac Stacy

Favorite: Richardson

WINNER: Richardson

Once longtime Ram Steven Jackson left via free agency in the offseason it left a huge hole in the St. Louis backfield. There’s a trio of players battling it out in the preseason to replace Jackson. The favorite to land the job is 2012 7th Round pick Daryl Richardson who showed signs last season of being a productive NFL Back but wore down as the season progressed. Fellow 2012 draft pick Isaiah Pead is also in the mix. Despite being drafted five rounds ahead of Richardson, Pead hardly saw the field as a rookie. Not only has Pead struggled on the field, he has also had off the field issues which have lead to a suspension to start the season. The third man in the mix is Zac Stacy, a 6th round pick out of Vanderbilt in the 2013 draft. Stacy had an excellent college career and has been pegged by many as a sleeper candidate entering the season. If Stacy can secure the job, he’ll be much more than just a sleeper in 2013.

Patriots WR

Danny Amendola and Aaron Dobson

The Job: New England Patriots #2 WR

Candidates: Aaron Dobson (R), Julian Edelman, Kenbrell Thompkins, Matthew Slater, Josh Boyce

Favorite: Dobson/Edelman/Thompkins

Who will win the Job: Thompkins

What do Deion Branch, Reche Caldwell, David Patten, Troy Brown, Jabar Gaffney, David Givens and Donte Stallworth all have in common? They were all receivers who had decent runs of NFL production because of one player, Tom Brady. What’s the point? Well, someone has to occupy the Patriots #2 WR job this season. Whoever wins that spot, will instantly become fantasy relevant and could put up some solid numbers in one of the best Fantasy offenses in the league. Last season, New England finished first in the league, scoring just under 91 fantasy points per game. The only other team that was even close was New Orleans. While most of the guys competing for the job you’ve probably never heard of, whoever wins the job, could become a household name very quickly. Our new favorite to win the spot is undrafted free agent Kenbrell Thompkins. Thompkins is a burner and shows excellent ability to get off press coverage and stretch the field which should open it up for Danny Amendola and Rob Gronkowksi. Keep a close eye on this battle all preseason long.
