NFC East

Dallas Cowboys

The Cowboys face one of the easiest schedules for quarterbacks, so it's surprising that QB Tony Romo is getting undervalued in drafts. Dallas' schedule features some dangerous pass rushes and with a shaky offensive line, the threat of a Romo injury is there. The risk is well worth it this season, as the Cowboys play four of their first six at home and are also rewarded with a late bye week. Now is the time to buy stock in the Cowboys' passing attack, including WR Dez Bryant and TE Jason Witten.

New York Giants

The Giants will be forced to hit the road for four of their first six games. The G-Men will also be on the road for two of their three fantasy playoff matchups, but the good news is that those two away games will be against fantasy friendly opponents in San Diego and Detroit. Following their Week 9 bye, the Giants will play three straight home games that could see their passing game post lofty numbers. Don't sleep on WR Hakeem Nicks, assuming he can enter the season healthy, after dealing with injuries a year ago.

Philadelphia Eagles

The Eagles will start the season with three favourable games, which should be extremely beneficial for a team adapting to a new head coach and offensive scheme under Chip Kelly. Much like the other NFC East clubs, the Eagles will get to capitalize against some of the weaker secondaries across the league, which may not make their quarterback into a star, but could help WR DeSean Jackson get back to fantasy relevance. The first week of the fantasy playoffs could be a high scoring affair between the Eagles and Lions.

Washington Redskins

The Redskins are hoping QB Robert Griffin III can find his 2012 form as he works his way back from injury and their early season slate should help him do just that. The Redskins face the Eagles, Lions and Raiders in three of their first four games and then have a bye week directly after that. The early bye week should ensure that Griffin is ready for the strong pass rushes he will face the rest of the way. There is nothing in the schedule to suggest RB Alfred Morris will struggle after a breakout rookie season.
