Outlook: The Cowboys never envisioned Barber as a carry-the-load workhorse, so they jumped all over complementary back Felix Jones in the first round of the draft. Barber's new contract gives him some stability even if he is going to be sharing the backfield with Jones. It also leaves Jones' future value up in the air and limits his fantasy ceiling.
 Derrick Ward NYG 28.1 - Back-up
 Reuben Droughns NYG [x] 30.0 - Cut?
 Danny Ware NYG 23.6 - Practice squad?
Outlook: Bradshaw is looking like a value killer for Jacobs though it remains to be seen how that timeshare will shake out in the next couple of years. Ward signs a one-year deal to give the Giants great depth, but it hampers his value.
 Ladell Betts WAS 29.0 - Insurance
Outlook: New regime sees Betts as the clear backup to Portis though there have been rumblings about using both in the backfield together.
 Correll Buckhalter PHI [x] 29.9 - Backup / Cut?
 Ryan Moats PHI [x] 25.7 - Cut?
Outlook: Westbrook will continue to dominate the offense. New acquisition Booker would likely split time with Buckhalter or Hunt if Westbrook goes down with an injury.
GREEN BAY PACKERS
Outlook: How will Favre's retirement affect the Packers' offensive production? Grant is one of the few carry-the-load backs in the league these days, and Jackson is clearly the back-up or part-time 3rd down option.
 Maurice Hicks - Returner / 3rd down option
Outlook: One-two punch of ADP and Chester Taylor in the Vikes' heavy rushing attack, with ADP seeing most of the work. I'm not generally a believer in the "handcuff" strategy, but Chester Taylor is an absolute must for ADP owners -- similar to LT2 & Turner in '06 & '07.
 Tatum Bell DET 27.5 - Back-up?
 Brian Calhoun DET 24.4 - Change of pace? / 3rd down work?
 Garrett Wolfe - Change of pace
Outlook: Natural landing spot for Illinois' star Rashard Mendenhall as both Lovie Smith and GM Angelo have put Benson on notice that he will have competition next season. The offensive line could still use some tinkering as well.
Outlook: Graham will enter '08 as the starter with Caddy a giant question mark to play at all, much less return at full strength anytime in the near future. Dunn is ostensibly being brought in as the 3rd down back despite the fact that he's a hindrance in the passing game at this point in his career . . . good news for Graham.
Aaron Stecker NO 32.8 - Back-up
Outlook: Should be the same cast of characters again in ’08 though it's looking more and more possible that Deuce could be cut, in which case Pierre Thomas would see a significant jump in value.
Outlook: DeAngelo Williams sees a major role increase, but questions persist about short-yardage and blitz pickup. Is Toefield the power back partner, or will the Panthers seek an upgrade early in the draft?
 Jerious Norwood ATL 25.1 - Change of pace
Outlook: Turner signed to lead Mularkey's power running game and should total 250-270 carries with complement Norwood as an explosive change of pace weapon.
 Maurice Morris SEA 28.8 - Back-up
Outlook: Barring an early round draft pick, it looks like a committee led by Julius Jones with a splash of Maurice Morris on 3rd down and T.J. Duckett in short-yardage. Despite the protestations to the contrary, Alexander is still likely to be cut
Outlook: After seeing his 3rd down and goal-line work taken away from him last season, the Cards will look for Edge's successor in the draft this season.
 Michael Robinson SF 25.5 - Back-up
Outlook: Martz' hire as OC means Gore's value goes up in PPR leagues and should be good news for the entire offense in 2008. Foster signed a meager contract and looks much more like a strict backup as opposed to a threat to Gore's production.
 Brian Leonard STL 24.6 - Back-up / FullbackOutlook: All set here. Rams intend to build their offense around Steven Jackson going forward. Return of a healthy Pace with addition of Jacob Bell should boost the O-Line's production.
