Week 1 Projections
For the second straight season, Brian Cushing got off to a solid start in 2013. For a second straight season though, Cushing's season was cut short due to a major injury.

Smith of The Houston Chronicle in May that he plans to be on the field for Week 1, and he showed with a top 15 IDP finish in Fantasy Sharks Default IDP Scoring in 2011 what he's capable of when healthy. However, there's no ignoring the elephant in the room with Cushing: Durability is now a major red flag for IDP drafters.
