2011 Offseason Team Needs: NFC South

This is a continuation of our off season team needs series.  This time we examine the NFC South teams.

Carolina Panthers

QB- Jimmy Clausen

RB- DeAngelo Williams???, Jonathan Stewart

WR- Steve Smith, Brandon LaFell

TE- Jeff King

Needs - Everything but running back

Jonathan Stewart is entrenched as the future running back starter here.  The other positions could use major upgrading.  Don’t expect to see the Panthers contending in the short run.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

QB- Josh Freeman

RB- LeGarette Blount, Carnell Williams

WR- Mike Williams, Arrelious Benn

TE- Kellen Winslow

Needs - Maturity at all the positions

This is a talented young team.  They just need for all that talent to gel together.

New Orleans Saints

QB- Drew Brees

RB- Pierre Thomas???, Reggie Bush

WR- Marques Colston, Lance Moore

TE- Jeremy Shockey, Jimmy Graham

Needs - off season decision made at running back position

All of the other major fantasy positions are fine but running back.  They have to decide if they want to stick with the oft injured tandem of Pierre Thomas and Reggie Bush or to go in another direction in the upcoming draft.  Ryan Williams would be a good selection for this team.

Atlanta Falcons

QB- Matt Ryan

RB- Michael Turner, Jason Snelling

WR- Roddy White, Michael Jenkins

TE- Tony Gonzalez

Needs – Another wide receiver to go with Roddy White and a tight end to replace Tony Gonzalez.

For the passing game to take the next step under Matt Ryan, another youthful target at the receiver position must be found.  A backup for Tony Gonzalez would be nice too.
