• A strong '09 finish pushed Chicago's Devin Aromashodu into the second or third round on many draft boards, but new coordinator Mike Martz's system will boost all Bears. Slot man Devin Hester (above) will find space to run after the catch and challenge the 1,000-yard mark, while burner Johnny Knox has great upside as a backup. Even Jay Cutler's Vanderbilt teammate, Earl Bennett, is worth a late gamble.

• San Diego's Vincent Jackson (left) was one of the top receivers last season, placing in the top 10 in yards and touchdowns, but he'll start the year with a three-game suspension for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy after two guilty pleas to DUI. A restricted free agent, Jackson can wait until the suspension is over to re-sign, at which point he could hold out for a better deal. It could get messy. Steer clear.

• Second-year Patriots wideout Julian Edelman was a hot sleeper pick a few weeks ago when it appeared that Wes Welker (above) would miss at least the first six games following reconstructive left-knee surgery last February. But Welker is on track to play opening weekend, closing Edelman's window of opportunity as a fantasy starter and making him a late-rounder.
