Andy Dalton: With the new weapons in the Cincinnati Bengals' offense, like Mohamed Sanu emerging as a solid No. 2 wide receiver to complement A.J. Green, and 6'6", 250-pound, tight end Tyler Eifert (who can complement Jermaine Gresham in a possible two-tight end formation).And Giovani Bernard who will establish himself as more of a receiving running back until he takes majority of the carries.Dalton clearly has more reliable passing options than he did last season.Jordan Cameron: Brandon Weeden has shown signs of huge improvement over the preseason, thus improving the Cleveland Browns' passing offense, especially under their coordinator, Norv Turner.One can notice that Weeden loves passing to his tight end Jordan Cameron. Cameron had a not-so-stellar season in 2012, with 226 receiving yards and one touchdown, yet during this preseason, he is having a standout performance, emerging as Weeden's favorite target.Maurice Jones-Drew: Jones-Drew suffered a Lisfranc injury last season, limiting him to only 414 yards last season, dramatically dropping his fantasy football value.Many ESPN analysts have Jones-Drew ranked No. 16 at the running back position, which one may view as extremely low for a player who rushed for 1,606 yards just a little over a year ago. Prior to the Lisfranc injury, Jones-Drew only missed three total games in five seasons. Expect the 2011 rushing leader to be a solid fantasy option.Jordy Nelson: With Greg Jennings being traded to the Minnesota Vikings, this presents a major opportunity for Jordy Nelson (along with Randall Cobb) to register even better fantasy points with the Green Bay Packers. Nelson finished the 2012 season with 745 receiving yards and seven touchdowns.St. Louis Rams' Defense: The St. Louis Rams' defense should be a solid fantasy option this upcoming season. The Rams registered a monstrous 52 sacks (led NFL), 17 interceptions, and 5 touchdowns last season. This same defense limited the explosive San Francisco 49ers' offense to only 13 points in their second matchup last season.
