Steve Breaston, WR, Arizona Cardinals

Pros: Breaston, who is in a contract year, will see an expanded role in the Arizona offense with the trade of Anquan Boldin to Baltimore. Playing mostly as the team's No. 3 receiver the past two years, he has hauled in 132 passes, including 77 two seasons ago. He has started 15 games in the past two years, so it should be a smooth transition.

Cons: His statistics previously mentioned are nice and all, but they came mostly from Kurt Warner at quarterback. Warner is gone and so is the high-flying passing game in the desert. Matt Leinart - or Derek Anderson possibly at some point - hasn't proven he can consistently put the ball in the hands of the wideouts. The Cardinals may rely more on defense and a running game this year, lessening the opportunities for the receivers. Third-year receiver Early Doucet showed some signs of maturation a year ago and could also push for playing time.

Fantasy tip: Breaston typically is selected around the seventh round in fantasy football drafts, which is more of a leap of faith in the passing game than we are comfortable making. He has upside if the passing attack can hold its own, but we're not willing to bank on him as more than a fourth receiver on our fantasy football squads entering the year.
