Things change in the preseason. Not everything, not all things, but some things. Players cement their roles, or grow a rapport with their quarterback, or prove to be a bad fit. Coaching staffs figure out how to use some guy, or decide to change their plans, or any one of a million other possibilities.

With that in mind, PFF Fantasy's Dan Schneier is spending the buildup to training camp identifying some of the key players to watch in training camp. Some of the players are looking to break into a starting lineup or a featured role, while others are out to prove they still have gas in the tank. Regardless, these are names whose fantasy ADPs could swing wildly based on training camp reports and performances, and savvy fantasy owners should pay close attention.

Follow along with the series below, as Dan adds two divisions a week.
