With football looming (first game is thursday, all other teams start a week from today), I figured it was about time to crank out the rest of my fantasy football previews. Most of you have probably had your drafts already (unless you’re total slackers), but these previews can be useful all year long, so I’ll keep on keeping on for you readers.

After a few days off, and a check-in on some college football action, we can finally get back to previewing fantasy football. It is what the people want, and it is what the people shall get. This division has potential to be an exciting one, with the Jets and Patriots slugging it out for first place and the Dolphins and Bills trying to claw their way back to respectability. Let’s take a look at what will happen when the dust settles and the last tackle is shed.

Last year, the NFC West was won by the Seattle Seahawks, who finished 7-9… When you don’t even need to be at .500 to win a division, you know that division is pretty damn terrible. Furthermore, the current playoff system let the 7-9 Seahawks into the playoffs, but not the 10-6 New York Giants… but I’m not bitter or anything… not one bit. I’m also not bitter that this could happen again this year and leave my Giants out of the playoffs again… or someone else… no, not bitter at all. On with the preview!
