5. NFC preview
1. Philadelphia Eagles: Can Carson Wentz put together consecutive healthy seasons?
- Top 100 (per ESPN): QB Carson Wentz (39), TE Zach Ertz (48), DT Fletcher Cox (49), CB Darius Slay (61), OT Lane Johnson (71)
- Playoff odds (per FiveThirtyEight): 57%
2. Dallas Cowboys: Weapons abound, particularly at receiver. Now it's up to Mike McCarthy in his first year at the helm to use them wisely.
- Top 100: QB Dak Prescott (20), RB Ezekiel Elliott (24), G Zack Martin (45), WR Amari Cooper (56), OT Tyron Smith (60), DE Demarcus Lawrence (65)
- Playoff odds: 63%
3. New York Giants: Saquon Barkley might put up video game numbers this year, but if Daniel Jones doesn't cut down on the fumbles it could all be for naught.
- Top 100: RB Saquon Barkley (16)
- Playoff odds: 17%
4. Washington Football Team: New coach, new name ... same owner. The outlook isn't brilliant.
- Top 100: None
- Playoff odds: 11%
1. Green Bay Packers: Aaron Rodgers is still just 36. Will Green Bay regret drafting his future replacement instead of a difference-making receiver to pair alongside Pro Bowler Davante Adams?
- Top 100: QB Aaron Rodgers (23), WR Davante Adams (33), OT David Bakhtiari (34), OLB Za'Darius Smith (58), RB Aaron Jones (63), CB Jaire Alexander (94)
- Playoff odds: 54%
2. Minnesota Vikings: They've undergone an incredible amount of turnover from a year ago, but the division remains up for grabs, especially if Dalvin Cook and Adam Thielen stay healthy.
- Top 100: RB Dalvin Cook (41), DE Danielle Hunter (55), S Harrison Smith (62), DE Yannick Ngakoue (68), WR Adam Thielen (80), QB Kirk Cousins (82), ILB Eric Kendricks (96)
- Playoff odds: 50%
3. Chicago Bears: Well, at least the defense is exciting, right?
- Top 100: OLB Khalil Mack (21), S Eddie Jackson (75)
- Playoff odds: 48%
4. Detroit Lions: They haven't won the division since 1993! And I wouldn't bank on this being the year they break through, either.
- Top 100: QB Matthew Stafford (52), WR Kenny Golladay (76)
- Playoff odds: 25%
1. New Orleans Saints: We know what Drew Brees and company can do in the regular season, but they're running out of time for their Hall of Famer to bring them back to the promised land before he hangs 'em up.
- Top 100: WR Michael Thomas (5), QB Drew Brees (14), DE Cameron Jordan (30), RB Alvin Kamara (50), CB Marshon Lattimore (54), OT Ryan Ramczyk (66), ILB Demario Davis (87)
- Playoff odds: 72%
2. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Brady surrounded by the best offensive weapons he's had since 2007. Sign me up.
- Top 100: WR Mike Evans (22), QB Tom Brady (32), WR Chris Godwin (57), OLB Shaquil Barrett (84), TE Rob Gronkowski (99)
- Playoff odds: 50%
3. Atlanta Falcons: Another slow start like last year (2-7) will sink them, as five of their final seven games come against the Saints, Chiefs and Bucs.
- Top 100: WR Julio Jones (13), QB Matt Ryan (37), DT Grady Jarrett (86)
- Playoff odds: 34%
4. Carolina Panthers: Christian McCaffrey is as explosive as it gets and Teddy Bridgewater is easy to root for, but the Panthers could struggle in what looks to be a rebuilding year.
- Top 100: RB Christian McCaffrey (6)
- Playoff odds: 19%
1. San Francisco 49ers: The Super Bowl still stings and the division has undoubtedly improved. Are they still favorites, or did they miss their window?
- Top 100: TE George Kittle (9), DE Nick Bosa (15), CB Richard Sherman (67), DE Arik Armstead (93)
- Playoff odds: 68%
2. Seattle Seahawks: Someone's going to have to explain to me how Russell Wilson has never received a single MVP vote. 2020 — do your thing.
- Top 100: QB Russell Wilson (4), S Jamal Adams (19), ILB Bobby Wagner (27), WR Tyler Lockett (83)
- Playoff odds: 53%
3. Los Angeles Rams: No Gurley, no problem? Sean McVay will rely on defensive superstars and RB by committee to attempt a third division crown in four years.
- Top 100: DT Aaron Donald (2), CB Jalen Ramsey (35), WR Cooper Kupp (95)
- Playoff odds: 49%
4. Arizona Cardinals: Remains to be seen how successful they'll be, but few if any teams will be as exciting as this bunch.
- Top 100: WR DeAndre Hopkins (8), OLB Chandler Jones (25), QB Kyler Murray (47), CB Patrick Peterson (70)
- Playoff odds: 28%
