*Rookie (college statistics)

On the Rise

• MATT HASSELBECK
Seahawks
RB Julius Jones and rookie TE John Carlson will strengthen an attack in which Hasselbeck set career highs in TDs and yards in '07.

JASON CAMPBELL
Redskins
Recovered from a dislocated kneecap, he'll benefit from working with new coach Jim Zorn.

DAVID GARRARD
Jaguars
He'll be throwing to his best set of wideouts since he became a starter.

On the Decline

MARC BULGER
Rams
His completion percentage, QB rating and yards per attempt dropped for the second year in a row.

JON KITNA
Lions
With coordinator Mike Martz gone, Kitna's chances of passing for 4,000 yards for a third straight season are nil.

JEFF GARCIA
Buccaneers
At 38 and with Brian Griese in camp, Garcia's days as a solid fantasy bet are over.

Sleepers

• JAY CUTLER
Broncos
After being diagnosed with and treated for Type 1 diabetes in the off-season, he has regained much of his stamina and arm strength.

JAKE DELHOMME
Panthers
At 33, he's trying to become just the second quarterback to make a full recovery from Tommy John elbow surgery.

JAMARCUS RUSSELL
Raiders
He showed signs at the end of last season that he could fulfill his top-pick promise.
