Other divisions: NFC North, NFC East, AFC East, AFC South, NFC South, NFC West, AFC West
1. Andy Dalton, Bengals: Coming off a top-five fantasy QB finish but is nothing more than a middling QB2 in new run-oriented offense.
2. Steve Smith, Ravens: Will be the third or fourth option in the passing game after being top dog in Carolina over the past decade.
3. BenJarvus Green-Ellis, Bengals: Appears to have lost big-back, goal-line job to rookie Jeremy Hill and may not make roster.
4. Ray Rice, Ravens: Looked run-down last season and will serve a two-game suspension to open season. If Bernard Pierce shines, Rice may not get his job back.
5. Lance Moore, Steelers: Not playing in a Drew Brees-quarterbacked offense anymore, and is the No. 4 or 5 option in the passing game.
1. Bernard Pierce, Ravens: Whipped himself back into shape and should start the opener with Ray Rice suspended. Natural fit for OC Gary Kubiak's zone-blocking scheme.
2. Jeremy Hill, Bengals: Taking over big-back duties form the Law Firm and could flirt with 150-200 carries and 8-10 touchdowns in year one.
3. Torrey Smith, Ravens: Will be Gary Kubiak's new Andre Johnson as a target-hog receiver. Continues to make strides and is a definite threat for WR1 production.
4. Heath Miller, Steelers: Back and fully healthy after 2012 knee reconstruction. Should dominate targets in the red zone as a Ben Roethlisberger favorite.
5. Dennis Pitta, Ravens: Going to be fed the ball consistently in the short-intermediate game and red zone in new tight end-friendly offense.
1. LeGarrette Blount, Steelers: Clear No. 2 behind Le'Veon Bell and may even be given goal-line opportunities.
2. Markus Wheaton, Steelers: Replacing Emmanuel Sanders as the starter opposite Antonio Brown. Big-time burner who can blaze past slower corners.
3. Marvin Jones, Bengals: Touchdown-scorer and locked-in No. 2 receiver behind A.J. Green. Coming off a breakout sophomore season.
4. Andrew Hawkins, Browns: Jitterbug playmaker who's a threat for 80-plus grabs in a Josh Gordon-less offense. Only Jordan Cameron is ahead of him for targets.
5. Lorenzo Taliaferro, Ravens: With Ray Rice opening the season suspended, Taliaferro could see some short-yardage and third-down work if Justin Forsett doesn't pan out. The rookie is a hard-charging downhill runner.
