With the end of the 2004 NFL season, comes an offseason full of uncertainty. While we are basking in the joy of a new fantasy baseball campaign, I'll take some time to address some of the big questions that are on your minds.

Do you expect Shaun Alexander to remain in Seattle, and how will his fantasy value be affected? -- Seattle's top two priorities are to wrap up deals with LT Walter Jones, which they have, and Matt Hasselbeck. The QB might get slapped with the franchise tag, and it appears the Seahawks will have difficulty signing all of their "Big Three." There have been rumblings that Alexander is on his way out, and I'm betting he'll end up in a Buccaneers or Dolphins uniform. Playing for Tampa Bay, in a balanced offense, should allow him to excel, but he could see a slight drop in production if he moves to Miami. He's still an easy top four pick, no matter where he plays.

Do you expect Clinton Portis to rebound? -- No, because he is not going back to Denver.
