We are well into the free agent season and most of the big names have come off the board. That means teams are starting to round into shape. While we still have the NFL Draft in May, enough has happened that we can start to figure out what the league's offenses will look like in 2014. That's why we're going through to examine all 32 rosters to check on their respective fantasy values. For a more complete look, check out Around the League's Roster Reset.

The Cowboys have been relatively quiet during the free agent period. In fact, the biggest change in their offense might be the addition of Scott Linehan to the coaching staff. Look for Dallas to throw the ball quite a bit in the coming season, which should pay dividends for any fantasy owners with Dez Bryant and Terrance Williams. Even Tony Romo, who has lived on the fringes of being a No. 1 fantasy quarterback, could get a nice boost into the top 10 at his position.
New York Giants
Like the Cowboys, the Giants will hve a new offensive playcaller in Ben McAdoo. However, Big Blue's success in 2014 could rest on Eli Manning's ability to bounce back from a horrid 2013. He'll have to do it without Hakeem Nicks, who left for Indianapolis. In his place is Rueben Randle, who had a nice mid-season stretch and will try to be among the many receivers who have made the leap in their third NFL season. Rashad Jennings spearheads a change in the backfield and should have plenty of chances to make an impact.
Chip Kelly believes in his offensive system. That's how the team can let a player like DeSean Jackson leave and replace him with Jeremy Maclin, who missed all of 2013. It will be the year that fantasy owners learn whether they can believe in Kelly's system as well. One thing is certain, it should continue to be a boon for LeSean McCoy and won't hurt the recently acquired Darren Sproles. As for Nick Foles, can he pick up where he left off last year when he was one of the biggest surprises in fantasy football?
Continuing a trend throughout the division, Washington has a new offensive coordinator in Sean McVay. The team also has a brand new pair of wideouts in DeSean Jackson and Andre Roberts. That should do wonders for the fantasy prospects of Robert Griffin III. It won't do quite as much for Alfred Morris, who now finds himself in an offense that will go heavy on the pass. Keep an eye out for Roy Helu, who could have sleeper appeal as a pass-catching running back, especially in PPR leagues.
