Expect improvement right away, particularly if the quarterback situation stabilizes. There is more talent here than meets the eye, though some serious problem spots remain.
The talent level is finally rising for the Raiders. Derek Carr is a promising young quarterback, and he has some intriguing weapons to work with. The starters on both sides of the ball are solid enough units to compete with most teams on most weeks.
Amari Cooper, Kevin White, Todd Gurley and Melvin Gordon all figure to have potentially big fantasy seasons as rookies.
There are precious few players in the prime of their careers for the Bears and a whole host either at the beginning or the end. This is a tough mix and why expectations are incredibly low.
The schedule is almost too easy for Andrew Luck & company; Indy faces just three teams all season who had winning records in 2014. If ever this group is going to win the AFC, this is the year.
