That didn’t take long. On the first full day of free agency, the most sought after fish on the market was reeled in. Edgerrin James signed a four-year, $30 million contract with the Arizona Cardinals.

Forget what this means for which team is now favored to reach next year’s Super Bowl - the move has MAJOR fantasy implications. Let’s review:

- Where does James rank among top running backs now? Can you count on him as an elite back in Arizona? Could a player in a run-first system, such as DeShaun Foster, actually leap over Edge in your draft?

- Is Peyton Manning still the top quarterback? Will teams drop back into a constant dime defense now that the running attack has been diminished?

- What about Dominic Rhodes? Now the Indy starting back, can you expect James-type numbers from this former back-up?

- Is there a more offensively loaded team than the Cardinals? What does this mean for the apocalypse? Kurt Warner can now hand the ball to James or throw it to a pair of All-Pro wide receivers: Anquan Boldin and Larry Fitzgerald?

Does the man make the system or vice versa? That’s the question fantasy owners will have to decide as they make up their draft board next season. One thing appears to be for certain, however: apparently God really is on Kurt Warner’s side.
