4Frank Gore was well past his “use by”date & was cut. Can one of the worst OL’s get the run game going again?
3Can the rebuilt WR group give the O some pop?
2IN used 4 draft picks on D. Can the 3rd worst D get off the field often enough to help the team?
1No Luck last year at all & he is not throwing the ball yet. Will Andrew Luck be able to play this year?
  
 Jaguars
4JK Cut WR Herns & TE Lewis. Can the receivers group recover from those losses?
3The D was 2nd in points allowed but lost MLB Paul Posluszny. Can it reach that level again?
2RB Leonard Fournette was outstanding last yr. Can he produce that level this year?
1Is Blake Bortles the real deal & franchise QB or not?
  
 Texans
4Can TE C.J. Fiedorowicz play this year with 3 concussions last year?
3J. J. Watt suffered a tibial plateau fracture. He is the key to the D. Will he be able to play like he did in 17 prior to J?
2The Run game was a huge disappointment. The didn’t draft or sign a RB. Can R Lamar Miller revive the run game?
1Can a really bad OL keep Q Deshaun Watson healthy?
  
 Titans
4TN cut R DeMarco Murray. In 3 starts Derrick Henry had 1 good gm. Can RB Dion Lewis get the run gm going?
3Can CB Malcom Butler solve the passing yardage the D gave up last year?
2The D was middle of the road last season. TN traded up to get ILB Evans & OB Landry. Did they do enough to get to PO?
1Q Marcus Mariota had a down season last yr. Can he get back to 26 to 30 TD passes this season?
