Rosters & depth charts are always changing, and staying on top of them is crucial to your fantasy success. Injuries take place all the time, and staying on top of who steps in behind can give you an edge. Dive into each team's roster to find out where specific players rank in terms of their position.
Arizona Cardinals Roster - Arizona is one of the more weapon heavy teams in the NFL. After taking advantage of a Chris Johnson injury, David Johnson takes over the lead running back role here in 2016. Carson Palmer has his reliable targets in the receiving core, as there are plenty behind them ready to step into a bigger role.
Atlanta Falcons Roster - The addition of Mohammed Sanu has helped stabilize a rather weak receiving core from 2015. Now the Falcons have Julio Jones, but there was a lot that lacked behind him, that has changed. Atlanta might have developed a lethal two-headed monster in the backfield, with Tevin Coleman and Devonta Freeman.
Baltimore Ravens Roster - Baltimore has taken an odd approach to a possible transition period, as many of the offensive weapons within are aging guys, or unproven talents. With a healthy squad returning in 2016, where do guys like Breshad Perriman and Kamar Aiken fit in? We are also dealing with quite the crowded backfield, which is currently led by Justin Forsett.
Buffalo Bills Roster - Karlos Williams was lost in the offseason, and Buffalo slid up Mike Gillislee to backup LeSean McCoy. Buffalo has found their quarterback in Tyrod Taylor, but they might need a bit more than Sammy Watkins around him. The secondary pieces will need to pick things up if they want to have any success.
Carolina Panthers Roster - A near championship team in 2015 is returning with their second best offensive weapon, behind Cam Newton. Kelvin Benjamin shifts everyone down a peg, as we saw guys like Ted Ginn and Devin Funchess step into a bigger role last season. Jonathan Stewart also returns to be the lead back in Carolina.
Cincinnati Bengals Roster - There was quite a bit of turnover in Cincinnati this offseason, as Mohammed Sanu and Marvin Jones are both out of town. This leaves A.J. Green on his own, with Brandon LaFell and Tyler Boyd. It is still a split backfield with Jeremy Hill and Giovani Bernard this season, as we saw game-flow really dictate the usage last season.
Chicago Bears Roster - With Matt Forte gone, things have shifted over to Jeremy Langford as the lead-back, but Jordan Howard could be lurking. We also will see Kevin White this season, after injuring himself and being out in his rookie year. Brian Hoyer is backing up Jay Cutler, and outside of that the Bears are pretty much in the same shape as last season.
Cleveland Browns Roster - The tide is turning in Cleveland. There is a new coach in town, but also a handful of quarterbacks that have already drawn starts in 2016. The Browns also drafted Corey Coleman, who is right at the top of the wide receiver depth chart, with Terrell Pryor is behind him, who used to play quarterback in college.
Dallas Cowboys Roster - With the Tony Romo injury, Dak Prescott will step into the starting role. Dallas have two starting skill players going, with Ezekiel Elliot being the other. Other than that, Dallas is returning the same receiving core as last season. This should bring some stability to an inexperienced quarterback. They are also bringing back the best offensive line in sports.
Denver Broncos Roster - Peyton Manning has sailed off in the sunset, and Trevor Seimien has become the everyday starter for Denver. The 2015 champions are returning everyone else. C.J. Anderson is one of the few workhorse backs in this league, and they showed that by letting Ronnie Hillman go in the offseason.
Detroit Lions Roster - Detroit is going to have to cope with the retirement of Calvin Johnson. They went out and landed Marvin Jones and Anquan Boldin, to add to Golden Tate in the receiving game. They should be just fine. Ameer Abdullah is out for 2016, and Dwayne Washington will share the backfield with Theo Riddick.
Green Bay Packers Roster - Jordy Nelson will return to this potent offense in 2016, after missing 2015 with a knee injury. Green Bay has always done a pretty good job of keeping their core together, and that remains the same. Eddie Lacy has slimmed down, so you might not see James Starks in the role he was in last year.
Houston Texans Roster - It is a revamped offense here in Houston, adding Lamar Miller and Brock Osweiler into their starting roles. Miller has shown the ability to carry this Houston running back situation, that lacks a second option. The Texans also added Will Fuller through the draft, to help DeAndre Hopkins on the other side.
Indianapolis Colts Roster - Here is hoping to Andrew Luck and his health in 2016. They lack depth at every skill position, and would show weakness if they were to lose anyone at their spots. Phillip Dorsett is set to make a leap in his second year, as they cut ties with veteran Andre Johnson.
Jacksonville Jaguars Roster - Jacksonville bolstered their running game this offseason adding Chris Ivory into the mix, with T.J. Yeldon. This squad remains intact from last year, which certainly thrived in the passing game. With the addition of Ivory, Jacksonville will try and look to make things a little more balanced on the offensive side.
Kansas City Chiefs Roster - The backup running backs are crucial here in Kansas City with Jamaal Charles being banged up to start the season. Spencer Ware is the lead back at the moment, while Charcandrick West will back him. Chris Conley will look to make a jump in the depth chart, as Albert Wilson hasn't solidified the WR2 role.
Los Angeles Rams Roster - Well, Los Angeles drafted Jared Goff number one overall. Case Keenum sits in front of him as the starting quarterback. A little odd, wouldn't you say? The Rams have one of the more horrendous rosters outside of Tayvon Austin and Todd Gurley. Outside of those two, none should really catch your eye.
Miami Dolphins Roster - Miami went off and signed Arian Foster in the offseason. With his injury concerns, Jay Ajayi still might have somewhat of a role. Either or, this Miami run game is certainly not a friendly one. DeVante Parker will finally look to make an impact in 2016, after missing 2015 with multiple injuries.
Minnesota Vikings Roster - With Adrian Peterson's injury, this opens the door for Jerick McKinnon and Matt Asiata to thrive in the run game. Teddy Bridgewater also going down caused Minnesota to go out and trade for Sam Bradford. Over the course of a few weeks, a lot of things have changed for Minnesota.
New England Patriots Roster - New England dealt with the Tom Brady suspension pretty well. They added Martellus Bennett in the offseason, which adds some security for Rob Gronkowski. The wide receiver core is pretty thin outside of Julian Edelman, but we always know whoever is out there will succeed in this New England system.
New Orleans Saints Roster - Drew Brees as a full arsenal of weapons this season. Michael Thomas and Coby Fleener are expected to make big impacts in this passing game. They already have Brandin Cooks and Willie Snead. C.J. Spiller finally was let go by New Orleans after hardly seeing the field in 2015.
New York Giants Roster - The Giants made some improvements on the defensive side of the ball through free agency and the draft. They also went out and drafted Sterling Sheppard. With Victor Cruz back, Eli manning will look to have a healthy set of weapons to throw to in 2016. The run game remains balanced between Rashad Jennings and Shane Vereen.
New York Jets Roster - After the Ryan Fitzpatrick debacle, we know he will be under center when healthy. New York went out and grabbed Matt Forte, after letting Chris Ivory walk in the offseason. Bilal Powell sits as a safety blanket if Forte was to ever go down. Let's not forget about the dynamic duo of Eric Decker and Brandon Marshall.
Oakland Raiders Roster - Oakland's running back situation might a little jumbled to start the season, and it has shown already. The Raiders have all the weapons in the passing game they could really desire. Michael Crabtree and Amari Cooper are quite the two to have Derek Carr throwing to. We might even see Clive Walford jump into the picture.
Pittsburgh Steelers Roster - DeAngelo Williams will start the first few games with Le'Veon Bell out, and then things will start to look normal again. Martavis Bryant is suspended for the whole season, so Markus Wheaton will step into the WR2 role, and you will see some Eli Rogers. Heath Miller retiring has Jesse James setup for a starting role.
Philadelphia Eagles Roster - Carson Wentz has stepped into this Philly offense as the starting quarterback. The tide is changing after Chip Kelly headed on over to San Francisco. Philly traded for Dorial Green-Beckham who is going to me a used as a primary receiver. Jordan Matthews and Nelson Agholor are the other two.
San Diego Chargers Roster - Danny Woodhead went down with a torn ACL, and now we might be seeing a full workload for Melvin Gordon. San Diego signed Dexter McCluster to play a role in passing downs. Another tough luck situation forced Keenan Allen to be done for the season. Travis Benjamin and Tyrell Williams jump right up into the top weapons.
Seattle Seahawks Roster - With Marshawn Lynch retiring, Thomas Rawls and Christine Michael are battling for the true number one spot in Seattle. At this moment in time, Michael has a slight advantage. The Seahawks have some sneaky weapons alongside Doug Baldwin, but we know that this system uses numerous amounts of guys in the passing game.
San Francisco 49ers Roster - It is certainly a mess in San Francisco, and there is a lot to sort through in terms of who has the real fantasy relevance. Blaine Gabbert is starting quarterback, which still comes at a surprise to many. After missing game last year. Carlos Hyde will be the standout athlete to lead the way.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers Roster - This is a young ball club, and Jameis Winston leads the way. Outside of Mike Evans, the secondary options in the passing game are very mediocre. Doug Martin and Chalres Sims are the one-two punch in the run game, as Sims picks up most of the work in the passing game. If one misses time, the other would jump into a full time role.
Tennessee Titans Roster - Tennessee landed DeMarco Murray in the offseason, then drafted Derrick Henry in the draft. The run game is certainly a threat, but they likely won't be in a spot to use it a ton. The passing game still lacks greatly in terms of receivers, but Tajae Sharpe is a name to keep an eye on with his move up the depth chart.
Washington Redskins Roster - Matt Jones and Chris Thompson make up the backfield, and neither have a real clear advantage when leading the club. The receiving core is very crowded, especially after drafting Josh Doctson. Now they are expected to let Pierre Garcon go next season, but at the moment there is about five guys all competing for jobs.
