14 Pierre THOMAS

SAINTS RB

IT'S TOUGH to say what is most unappealing about Thomas: his 3.2 rushing average of a year ago or the fact that the Saints traded for a first- and second-round pick to get Mark Ingram. And last season Thomas missed 10 weeks with a sprained ankle. At best Thomas is a committee back on a team that had the NFL's third-fewest rushing attempts last year.

15 Arizona CARDINALS

DST

THE CARDINALS' 2010 defensive value was skewed by their 12 return touchdowns, including two by Kerry Rhodes (left), a number that's even flukier when you consider their seven fumble-recovery touchdowns (two more than any team has ever had in a season). Considering its lack of a pass rush, Arizona is more likely to be one of the worst DSTs in 2011.
