Fitzgerald to return to elite?: You might have heard by now that Larry Fitzgerald had a bad season in 2012. New coach Bruce Arians aims to fix that. In a radio interview, the Cardinals head man said he’d like Fitzgerald to have “100 catches and 10-15 touchdowns” in 2013. That’s sweet music to the ears of fantasy owners. And with Carson Palmer under center (as opposed to last season’s QB quartet of disappointment), there’s a much better chance the veteran wideout sees those numbers. If the Redbirds really can get him the ball that often, he’s solidly back in the realm of elite N0. 1 receivers.
Giants looking at RB tandem: Questions have swirled around whether the New York Giants had plans to add any depth to their backfield. According to running backs coach Jerald Ingram, the answer is … maybe. However, all signs point to Andre Brown and David Wilson sharing the bulk of the carries. That’s good and bad news. There are the normal pitfalls of trying to manage a fantasy football rosters around the dynamics of a running back timeshare. However, the silver lining is that the timeshare should be limited to primarily two backs — instead of a possible three.
Cowboys looking for complementary RB: It appears DeMarco Murray won’t have the chance to be a featured back. It’s not a surprise considering Murray’s inability to make it through a 16-game schedule, but Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones told a San Antonio radio station that the team will take a look at drafting “a complementary back”. In reality, this won’t have a major effect on Murray’s fantasy value. He remains a No. 2 option in most formats. The only change is who you should consider drafting as his handcuff.
