Ask the Expert Question: Which veteran player (any position) that changed teams this offseason are you most interested in for the upcoming fantasy season? Why?

Which veteran player (any position) that changed teams this offseason are you most interested in for the upcoming fantasy season? Why?

Marshawn Lynch as the Oakland RB. He has had a year off to rejuvenate. He is playing behind one of the better offensive lines in front of his hometown with a chip on his shoulder. Now for the possible negatives-he is 31 and coming off an injury riddled 2015 season. Does he have anything left in the tank? I like the mix with the Raiders and see his incentive laden contract as motivation to be a top 10 RB!



ASK THE EXPERTS appears weekly at http://www.fantasyindex.com/ with answers to a new question posted Thursday morning.


Sam Hendricks is the author of Fantasy Football Guidebook, Fantasy Football Tips and Fantasy Football Basics , all available at http://www.ExtraPointPress.com/, at all major bookstores, and at http://www.amazon.com/ and www.BN.com. He is a 25+ year fantasy football veteran who regularly participates in the National Fantasy Football Championship (NFFC), Fantasy Football World Championship (FFWC) and finished 7th and 16th overall (out of 228 top players) in the 2008 and 2009 Fantasy Football Players Championship (FFPC). He won the Fantasy Index Open in 2013. In 2015 he won his Pros vs Joes Challenge division and finished 5th overall.

On a fateful night in Afghanistan, a flawed NATO airstrike sets into motion a chain of events that reaches across the world, from Vancouver to Copenhagen to London. How far will one person go for revenge?
In the sleepy English countryside, an F15E Strike Eagle team gears up for a live weapons mission. Can lead pilot "Rider" keep his head in the game and overcome the demons of his past? Hundreds of lives will depend on the answer as a deadly Al Qaeda terrorist cell, and maverick CIA and MI6 agents descend on US soil in a jaw-dropping climax where anything goes.
