As soon as the Los Angeles King won the Stanley Cup, many people were already making their NHL picks for next year and projecting why the Kings can repeat. But what about the New Jersey Devils?

The New York Yankees suddenly own the biggest divisional lead in baseball, and they’ve been killing on the MLB odds. But they’ll now be tested as they begin a four-game series at the Stadium with the AL Central-leading Chicago White Sox, going forward without the two-fifths of their starting rotation, including their ace.

Bills wideout Steve Johnson is healthy and raring to go. Will he help make the Bills an excellent choice to back with your NFL odds this season?

Yesterday, I profiled running back, Shonn Greene. Today, it’s time to turn our attention to the outside and evaluate the Jets’ top receiving option, Santonio Holmes. Last season, the Jets rewarded Holmes with a five-year, $45 million contract that includes $15 million in guaranteed money. However, instead of receiving premium production, the Jets got ‘Bad Santonio’.

Bad Santonio hauled in career lows in receptions (51) and receiving yards (654). Holmes’ eight touchdowns were his lone bright spot as he constantly bickered with Mark Sanchez. During the off-season, Holmes and Sanchez worked on their relationship. The Jets can only hope things turn around in 2012. With a full off-season of practice with Mark Sanchez, will Santonio revert back into a reliable fantasy starter?

Last week, I covered the primary New York Giants skill position players. This week, it’s time to focus on the New York Jets. As a whole, I don’t see much upside with the Jet offense. The Jets will deal with weekly questions at quarterback, so the supporting skill positions will see a lot of uncertainty on a week-to-week basis. To start it off, I’ll profile the Jets’ ‘bell cow’ running back, Shonn Greene.

Today, we’ll finish our fantasy previews for New York Giant skill position players. Last season, Eli Manning post career highs in yards (4,933), completions (359), and attempts (589). Prior to 2011, Eli never threw for more than 4,021 yards in a single season. We can credit Victor Cruz’s emergence and big play ability as a catalyst to Eli’s lucrative yardage totals. The Giants’ ranked dead last in the NFL in rushing yards per game, so the Giants had to rely on Eli’s right shoulder. Ultimately, Eli led the Giants to their second Super Bowl title in four years and erased all doubt about his place among the game’s best. Entering 2012, are Eli’s fantasy prospects at an all-time high?

So far, we’ve profiled Ahmad Bradshaw, Victor Cruz, and Hakeem Nicks. Today, we’ll analyze Giants’ first round rookie running back, David Wilson. The Giants let Brandon Jacobs walk effectively creating an opportunity in the Giants’ backfield. The Giants’ wasted little time selecting the VT Hokie with their first round pick. Entering this season, Wilson is one of the most intriguing fantasy options. Will he provide value in 2012?
