Having snagged WR Odell Beckham with the 12th overall pick in the draft, the New York Giants surely hope he will make an immediate impact for them. His playmaking skills as a return man could be on display early on, but his role in their WR corps is more complicated. Not only is he learning a West Coast system for the first time, but he will be behind at least Victor Cruz and Rueben Randle in the pecking order.

When Dennis Pitta agreed to a new five-year deal with Baltimore back in late February, Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome touched on the ways the 6-foot-4 tight end helps the offense.

"Dennis creates a number of mismatch problems for defenses," general manager Ozzie Newsome said at the time. "He makes it tough on them, and because of that, he really helps out our wide receivers. Opponents have to always pay attention to where he lines up and where his routes take him. Dennis is also a big target with very good hands, and his presence in the red zone is very important to us."

Coming off an injury-shortened 2013, Pitta's health will be a big key in 2014, and new offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak will look to use him in a more versatile role. That could be something for fantasy owners to pay close attention to.

Last season, Brent Celek posted a career-high 15.7 yards per catch and caught six touchdowns (second-best mark of his career). Despite those promising numbers, his pass-catching workload was the lightest since the 2008 season -- 32 passes (50 targets) for 502 yards. His workload also slipped some in 2012, while he still was in Andy Reid's system.

The Buffalo Bills have a pair of veteran running backs who are entering the final year of their respective contracts. C.J. Spiller is a playmaker but has battled injuries. Fred Jackson is a 33-year-old but keeps holding Father Time at bay. Together, they should continue giving the Bills a terrific one-two punch from the backfield.
