(81) returns to the sideline during the third quarter of the game against the Arizona Cardinals at Levi
The NFC West may not have the best offensive weapons when it comes to pass catchers, but the Seahawks addition of Jimmy Graham in the offseason finally gives the division someone elite. Graham is really the only early-round worthy fantasy football pick in the entire division.
The 49ers pulls up in the third place in the division with an aging Anquan Boldin leading the receiving group in San Francisco. The addition of Torrey Smith makes up for the subtraction of Michael Crabtree, but still it’s not much of an upgrade. We shall see which version of Vernon Davis we get this year as well, 2013 Davis with 52 catches for 13 touchdowns, or 2014 Davis with 26 catches and two touchdowns.
Finally, the St. Louis Rams don’t have much going at all for Nick Foles in the aerial attack. Kenny Britt, Tavon Austin, and Jared Cook poise the greatest threats to defenses and by the looks of it, it’s not much of a “threat” at all.
