Fantasy football 2016 roster reset: AFC South

Now that we're past free agency and the draft, we have a clue of how the teams around the NFL are going to line up. More importantly, we also have a pretty good idea of which players could be in line for some nice fantasy production in 2016. To help you out, we've brought back our Roster Resets for another season. Keep checking back as we add a new division each day.

Houston Texans

Key re-signings:Jonathan Grimes, Brandon Weeden
Key arrivals:Lamar Miller, Brock Osweiler
Key departures:Arian Foster, Garrett Graham, Brian Hoyer, Chris Polk, Nate Washington
Key draft picks:Will Fuller, Braxton Miller, Tyler Ervin

Fantasy depth chart
Quarterback:Brock Osweiler, Brandon Weeden
Running backs:Lamar Miller, Alfred Blue, Tyler Ervin
Wide receivers:DeAndre Hopkins, Will Fuller, Jaelen Strong, Braxton Miller, Cecil Shorts
Tight ends:Ryan Griffin, C.J. Fiedorowicz

This offseason, the Texans went all in on upgrading their offense. After cutting ties with stalwart Arian Foster, the team landed running back Lamar Miller and quarterback Brock Osweiler in free agency. Then Houston drafted receiver Will Fuller and running back Tyler Ervin. The message is clear: the Texans want to get faster. While we're still waiting to see if it works, it does make for some interesting fantasy drafting. DeAndre Hopkins could sneak into the bottom of the first round while Lamar Miller isn't likely to last past the second round. Look for Fuller to be a later round option while Osweiler could end up being an end-of-draft option in plenty of leagues.

Indianapolis Colts

Key re-signings:Dwayne Allen, Adam Vinatieri
Key arrivals: None
Key departures:Coby Fleener, Dan Herron, Andre Johnson
Key draft picks: None

Fantasy depth chart

Frank Gore might seem ageless, but it was still a surprise to see the Colts eschew trying to address the future of the running back position this offseason. The big key for Indianapolis is to have Andrew Luck healthy again after missing much of 2015 with a litany of injuries. But there is still the issue of an aging running back, a shoddy offensive line and a receiving corps that seems to have hit its ceiling. That also included tight end Dwayne Allen, who could be helped by Coby Fleener's departure but still has some ways to go to live up to the expectations that have been set for him.

Jacksonville Jaguars

Key re-signings: Marcedes Lewis
Key arrivals: Chris Ivory
Key departures: None
Key draft picks: None

Fantasy depth chart

Most of Jacksonville's offseason moves were centered on the defensive side of the ball. The one major offensive move the team made is expected to have a negative fantasy impact -- namely the addition of Chris Ivory to the backfield. With T.J. Yeldon already struggling to earn goal line carries, he seems less likely to see the ball in the red zone with Ivory waiting in the wings. On a more positive note, Blake Bortles is looking to build on a season that saw him finish fourth at his position in 2015. He'll also still have the Allen brothers (Robinson and Hurns), keeping the Jaguars passing game potent. Hopefully starting the season healthy could pay dividends for Julius Thomas at the tight end spot.

Tennessee Titans

Key re-signings: Antonio Andrews
Key arrivals:Matt Cassel, Rishard Matthews, DeMarco Murray
Key departures: Zach Mettenberger
Key draft picks: Derrick Henry

Fantasy depth chart

Quarterback:Marcus Mariota, Matt Cassel
Running backs:DeMarco Murray, Derrick Henry, David Cobb, Antonio Andrews
Wide receivers:Kendall Wright, Justin Hunter, Dorial Green-Beckham, Rishard Matthews
Tight ends:Delanie Walker, Anthony Fasano

Much like the Jaguars, the Titans did us no favors in their backfield. The team acquired DeMarco Murray then proceeded to spend a second-round pick on Heisman Trophy winner Derrick Henry. Look for Murray to earn the starting job, but this could easily turn into a committee. There are plenty of reasons to be excited for Marcus Mariota's second season, but it would be nice for one of the Titans receivers to finally develop. We've been waiting unsuccessfully for Kendall Wright or Justin Hunter to step forward. Now we're looking toward Dorial Green-Beckham or Rishard Matthews. Oh well, there's always Delanie Walker who continues to be one of the most underrated tight ends in fantasy.
