Heading into the offseason, the Cardinals needed offensive linemen, the Rams needed edge rushers, the 49ers needed corners, and the Seahawks needed help along the defensive line. Somehow, three months later, little of that has changed.

If the Saints are going to repeat as division champs in 2019, they'll probably need to find another wide receiver to complement Michael Thomas. Defense is the order of the day for the rest of the division -- Atlanta needs corners, Carolina needs safeties, and Tampa Bay needs defensive linemen.

Our tour of the league's uniforms takes us out west, where the 49ers have gone retro and the Seahawks and Cardinals ... haven't. And what should the Rams do when they introduce new uniforms to go with their new stadium?

In the second half of our series on NFL injuries in 2018, we break things down by position groups. Injuries to quarterbacks, running backs, and linebackers are down. Injuries are way up everywhere else, and in the defensive backfield, they are unprecedented.

The Bears, your reigning division champs, have a lot of defensive stars, but they'd be in big trouble if they lost a starter such as Khalil Mack or Leonard Floyd. Elsewhere, we find a lot of teams that need offensive help -- the Lions need linemen, while the Packers and Vikings need receivers.
Our first look at injury data from the 2018 season reveals some plain truths: injuries are on the rise; Washington and Jacksonville had historically bad luck on offense last year; and no team we've ever analyzed has suffered more injuries on defense than last year's Buccaneers.

At Football Outsiders, we measure receivers based on what they do with the targets they get -- but what happens when you look at a receiver's ability to generate targets in the first place? And what does it tell us about Seahawks receiver Tyler Lockett?
