Quarterbacks:

The quarterback position continues to be very deep for fantasy teams. We said it last year but it might ring even more true this year. The quarterback position might be the deepest ever for fantasy teams, causing the dilemma of acting early on an elite option or waiting and getting a solid starter later in your draft. It is a tough call for fantasy teams. The only thing that might make it a little easier this year for teams is that many of the quarterbacks have very similar value, making it a little easier to figure out when you need to act on taking a quarterback.

Either way, you will also want to know your scoring system. Every league is different. Some leagues favor quarterbacks a little more while others try to devalue the position some by making passing touchdowns worth less as well as penalizing more for interceptions. So you'll want to know your scoring inside and out before deciding when to take a quarterback.



Running Backs:

When it comes to fantasy, the running back position is a top priority. And this will be the case even more this season. The elite backs are much tougher to come by these days. You'll have to act early to get one of the top backs in this year's draft. These guys will go fast come draft day, and teams having them will have an advantage over their opponents. There just aren't that many elite backs any more, especially with more teams using a two-back approach or throwing on nearly every down.

But there are other options out there with potential after those top guys are gone. Who is the Devonta Freeman of this season? There are several players capable of having that breakout season, including Jeremy Langford, Thomas Rawls and Carlos Hyde. There is a drop off after the top guys, so finding one of these diamonds in the rough is as important as ever for fantasy teams in 2016.


Wide Receivers:

The receiver position is a lot more coveted these days, mainly because so many leagues are points per reception (PPR). This makes getting someone like Antonio Brown a big plus for fantasy teams. At this point, many fantasy owners feel more comfortable taking an elite receiver in the first round than a running back. The position tends to be more stable.

If you don't get an elite option in a PPR league, you aren't likely winning your league. And we have some quality top options. There are about 10 or so elite fantasy receivers - guys capable of leading the league in scoring. After the top guys, though, we have a lot of similar options, which is why many wait on receivers after the elite guys are gone. It is another reason teams load up on No. 1 receivers early. You can use different strategies at the receiver spot and have success both ways.

Just like at running back, teams are looking for the next surprise. Who will be the Allen Robinson in 2016? There are several breakout candidates, including Dorial Green-Beckham, Sammy Watkins and DeVante Parker. There are options out there that could break through. The key is to identify them, target a few, get a few for your team, and hope for the best.


Tight Ends:

It is becoming more and more evident that the tight end position isn't overlooked these days. Just look at the last few seasons with Rob Gronkowski and Jimmy Graham (when healthy) posting huge numbers, point totals as high as any position. These are players that can carry a team to the playoffs. Needless to say, a top No. 1 tight end that produces similar to an elite receiver can be a huge plus for fantasy teams.

The problem is about a handful of players fit that category while most are just capable starters for fantasy teams. So if you want one of those elite guys, act quickly. You'll likely have to use a pick in the first three rounds. And at this point, Gronk might be the only worthy player take really early in drafts. There are a lot of good options behind him but most aren't capable of scoring near his level. Teams will still do fine having guys like Tyler Eifert and Delanie Walker as their starters.


Kickers:

We mention it every season, but the key to finding a successful fantasy kicker is drafting a kicker that is on a team that wins games. Of the top-10 kickers last season, seven played on winning teams. There will be an occasional kicker that breaks this rule, but for the most part, the best kickers play on the best teams. They are giving them more opportunities to score, making their point totals among the best in the league.

And please don't be the guy that takes a kicker in the fifth round of your draft. The point deferential from week to week between the top kicker and the 10th rated guy is minimal. We aren't saying to totally discount the position, but use some discretion. Every point does matter, but having your core team in place before taking a kicker is a good idea come draft day.

You also know that some teams will surprise and a kicker's production will be rewarded. Last season, Graham Gano was the big surprise at kicker. He was second in the league in scoring, but went undrafted in many leagues because most didn't expect the Panthers to have a high-scoring team. Keep that in mind when thinking about taking a kicker in the early rounds of your draft. Let someone else use a mid-round pick on Stephen Gostkowski while you solidify the rest of your roster.


Def / STs:

The big thing with the defense/special teams position is knowing your rules. Some leagues really reward defenses for sacks, turnovers and points allowed while others just give points for touchdowns scored by your defense/special teams. This is quite a different approach, so before ranking or picking a defense during your draft, know what your league favors. Your rules will dictate the value the position in your league.

With that said, the Broncos are our top selection this season after a Super Bowl winning season and most of those key guys returning in 2016. But after them, we have several solid choices. The Panthers, Rams, Cardinals and Seahawks should have solid seasons and are capable of finishing near the top of most leagues in defense/special teams scoring.

And there are a couple different approaches to taking a defense. If you want to use a mid-round pick on a defense/special teams, take the Broncos or Panthers or whoever you have rated high. But if you want to wait until the later rounds, grab two defenses you think you can platoon based on matchups. This is a good strategy to use if you want to wait a while before taking a defense and use that mid-round pick on another position. Getting two teams like the Chiefs and Vikings could do just as well as taking the Seahawks with a higher pick. It is just something to think about heading into your draft. Platoon options can work well with this position.


Updated: 05/26/16
 #1  David Johnson (RB) ArizonaBye: 9 
 
Player News:
.Johnson found his way into the starting lineup late last season and was an elite back in that role. He was a fantasy force down the stretch, having 100-plus total yards four of five games to end the season and five touchdowns during that stretch. He didn't have double-digit carries until Week 13 of the season but still finished seventh overall in fantasy running back scoring. He is going to start from day one for the Cardinals this season. Johnson does well between the tackles but has plenty of speed to make plays to the outside. He also catches the ball very well and is a home-run threat with the ball in his hands. He is a complete back in an explosive offense. Fantasy Outlook: There is always risk with players similar to Johnson (i.e. C.J. Anderson last year), but Johnson sure looks like the real deal. He plays in a great offense, is a three-down back, and was very durable in college. Consider him a top-five fantasy back heading into this year. He can get around 1,700 total yards and 14 touchdowns in this offense.
 #2  Adrian Peterson (RB) MinnesotaBye: 6 
 
Player News:
Peterson returned from his nearly year-long suspension last season and didn't seem to miss a beat. He led the NFL in rushing and finished second overall in fantasy running back season. It was another very good showing for Peterson. He had seven 100-yard games and ran for nearly 1,500 yards. He also scored 11 touchdowns. If there was a knock on Peterson last year, it was a lack of work in the passing game. He caught just 30 passes, which is down some compared to his last few full seasons. Peterson remains the top back for the Vikings and should continue to get plenty of work. He is 31 years old but hasn't shown many signs of slowing down. He keeps himself in great shape and his almost year off the previous season could help the longevity of his career. Peterson has eight 1,000-yard seasons and double-digit touchdowns every year in the NFL that he has played a full season. Peterson is as explosive as any back in the game. He looks like a man among boys. Peterson can run over tacklers but also has great speed to break a big play every time he touches the ball. Fantasy Outlook: Peterson is getting older, which is a concern, but you still have to consider him a top-three fantasy back. You can even make a case for taking him first overall but he does carry some risk because of his age and tendency to get nicked up some during the year. But if he plays a full year, expect another season with around 1,700 total yards and double-digit touchdowns. He remains as consistent as any fantasy back in the game.
 #3  Odell Beckham Jr. (WR) New York GiantsBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Beckham didn't play the first four games of his rookie season because of a hamstring injury but still managed to have some of the best receiving numbers in all of football. He was a force that couldn't be stopped late in the year. He had four straight 100-yard games to end his season and seven 100-yard games for the season in 12 games. He also scored 12 touchdowns, doing a great job in the red zone. Beckham made some unbelievable catches throughout the season and was clearly the favorite target of quarterback Eli Manning. He is setup to be a star for years to come. Beckham is a top athlete with good speed. He is a great big-play threat that does well after the catch and on the deep ball. He also will make the acrobatic catch. Beckham could still improve his strength some but is a pretty complete receiver besides that.

Fantasy Outlook:  
He'll be hard pressed to repeat his finish to last season but remains an elite fantasy receiver. Some believe he'll be overdrafted this year, but we don't see him being a bust by any means. He can be a top-five fantasy receiver once again. Beckham is the real deal. He can get around 100 receptions for 1,400 yards and 14 or so touchdowns.

 #4  Le'Veon Bell (RB) PittsburghBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Bell had a breakout year, finishing first overall in fantasy scoring for running backs. He made big play after big play as a runner and receiver. He had more than 2,200 total yards. Bell had 100 or more total yards all but three games. He had four 100-yard rushing games and touchdowns five of six games to end the season. Bell is a big back with strength and speed. He will run over defenders but also has good moves in space. Bell is becoming one of the top pass catchers at running back in the game and is a huge asset in pass protection. He might be the most complete package at running back right now.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Bell is going to miss the first two games because of suspension but don't knock him down much because of that. He is the real deal at running back and is a top-three fantasy pick for 2015. You can make a strong case for him to be first overall come draft day even with the suspension. For now, count on about 2,000 total yards and 13 touchdowns with 80 receptions.

 #5  Todd Gurley (RB) Los AngelesBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Gurley missed the first two games of his rookie season as he recovered from a torn ACL and sat out the last game of the season because of injury, but still finished ninth overall in fantasy running back scoring. He had 1,294 total yards and 10 touchdowns. He had five 100-yard gams and averaged 4.8 yards per carry, running behind a poor offensive line much of the year. He is already one of the top backs in all of football. He is a big back but also possesses very good speed. He does a great job of breaking tackles and making plays after contact. Gurley is great at making the big play and an improving receiver, catching 21 passes as a rookie. Gurley can be a special back in this league as long as he is healthy. Fantasy Outlook: Gurley has a chance to be the top overall fantasy back this season. He has huge potential in this run-first offense. He is a top-five fantasy pick this season. Gurley can get around 1,800 to 1,900 total yards and 13 touchdowns with 40 or so receptions.
 #6  Jordy Nelson (WR) Green BayBye: 4 
 
Player News:
Nelson had his best season to date last year, finishing with career highs in receptions and yards. And his 13 touchdowns were the second most of his career. Nelson was third in fantasy scoring at receiver. Nelson had seven 100-yard games and at least 53-receiving yards all but a game. He was a model of consistency at the receiver spot. Nelson had at least 1,200-receiving yards three of the past four seasons, serving as the No. 1 receiver for the Packers. Nelson is a good athlete with above-average hands. He makes plays after the catch because of his top speed and moves in space. He will struggle with drops on occasion but has improved in that area and has the trust of Aaron Rodgers, who looks his way often.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Nelson tore his ACL during the preseason and is out for the year. Take him off your draft boards.

 #7  Antonio Brown (WR) PittsburghBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Brown was first overall in fantasy scoring last season at receiver, having his best season to date. He posted huge numbers on a weekly basis. His lowest yardage total of the season was 72 and his lowest reception total was five, which is pretty unbelievable. Brown had eight 100-yard games and four double-digit reception outings. He was the best receiver in football last season. Brown has two straight seasons with 110 or more receptions and at least 1,499-receiving yards. Brown is the clear top target for the Steelers' offense. Brown has top speed and solid hands. He is good at making plays after the catch, showing explosiveness for the big play. Brown has really improved his route running and is a top possession receiver as well as a big-play threat. He is the complete package at receiver.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Brown might have a hard time repeating last season but he is the top fantasy receiver in the game for 2015. He gets more targets than anyone and does a great job of producing super consistent numbers. That is all you can ask for from a No. 1 fantasy receiver. We like him for around 120 receptions for 1,500 yards and 12 or so touchdowns.

 #8  Ezekiel Elliott (RB) DallasBye: 7 
 
 #9  Rob Gronkowski (TE) New EnglandBye: 9 
 
Player News:
It took a few weeks for Gronk to round into form in his return from injury last season, but he got back to health and was the best tight end in the game once again. He was first overall in fantasy scoring for tight ends. Gronk scored 12 touchdowns and has three 100-yard games. He finished with a 1,000-yard season and even sat out the last game of the year. Gronk has double-digit touchdowns all but one season in the NFL and two 1,000-yard seasons. He is the premier tight end in the game. He does have an injury history, which is always a concern, but is the top target in this offense as long as he is playing. Gronk has tremendous size, runs solid routes and has enough speed to make plays downfield. He is the complete package at tight end.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Gronk is the clear No. 1 fantasy tight end, worthy of being selected in the first round of fantasy drafts. He is a difference maker at a position that doesn't have many guys producing huge numbers. Gronk produces more like a No. 1 fantasy receiver than tight end. Expect his numbers to get a little better this year, a year removed from a major injury. He can get 90 or so receptions for 1,200 yards with 14 touchdowns.

 #10  Devonta Freeman (RB) AtlantaBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Freeman opened his second season splitting carries but quickly took over as starter and had a breakout year in that role. He was the top rated fantasy back last season, beating out Adrian Peterson for that honor. Freeman had 1,634 total yards and 14 touchdowns. He had an amazing 73 receptions, doing a great job in the passing game. Freeman had four 100-yard games. He did seem to tire out some late in the year, having fewer than 80-rushing yards his last seven games. He is going to be the starter from day one this year. Freeman showed it all last season, running with power, breaking plays to the outside and making tons of plays in the passing game. He is a complete back for the Falcons and should continue to get plenty of work going forward. He is a big-play back and can make a something happen every time he touches the ball. Fantasy Outlook: Freeman will have a hard time repeating last year, but we still like him to do very well. He is the real deal, especially if you consider how well he does in the passing game. He is a top-five fantasy back this season and should go in the first round of most leagues. Expect around 1,500 total yards and double-digit scores with around 65 receptions.
 #11  DeAndre Hopkins (WR) HoustonBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Hopkins finally had that breakout season, emerging as the No. 1 receiver for the Texans. He should continue to keep that role for this coming season. Hopkins had his first 1,000-yard season last year, finishing with four 100-yard games. He averaged 15.9 yards per reception and scored six touchdowns. And Hopkins had this season getting below-average quarterback play much of the year. Hopkins has good size and strength, and is a good route runner for a young receiver. Hopkins does a good job of making the tough catch. He has a knack for making the big play downfield.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Hopkins is an exciting fantasy receiver. He has the potential to take another step forward this season, making him a top No. 2 for fantasy teams. Hopkins has a legit chance to get 90 receptions for 1,300 yards and around double-digit touchdowns.

 #12  Lamar Miller (RB) HoustonBye: 9 
 
Player News:
His season was overlooked a little because the Dolphins disappointed, but Miller was sixth overall in fantasy running back scoring. He was a pretty consistent back in a pass-first offense. Miller had 1,269 total yards and 10 touchdowns. He failed to have double-digit carries six times but still produced this very good numbers. He was a big plus in the passing game, catching 47 passes. Miller is a legit top NFL starting back. He has back-to-back seasons of 1,000-plus total yards and averages 4.6 yards per carry for his career. Miller is a home-run threat with the ball in his hands. He has track speed - actually running some track in college. He can get to the next level in a hurry. Miller isn't a huge back, though, and lacks a little thump for the position. He catches the ball very well out of the backfield, having at least 38 receptions two straight seasons. A move to the Texans is a positive for Miller, getting a chance for more carries in an offense that will run the ball more. He should see more overall touches with his new team. Fantasy Outlook: Miller is a legit top-10 fantasy back, especially with his move to Houston. He is going to get a lot of work. Just look at what Arian Foster did in this offense. Miller is a big-play threat that catches a ton of passes. He'll have very good total yardage numbers and don't overlook that he has at least nine scores two straight seasons. He also finds the end zone. Expect around 1,600 total yards and 10 touchdowns with 40 or so receptions. He is a second-round pick come draft day.
 #13  Mark Ingram (RB) New OrleansBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Ingram missed the last four games of the season because of a shoulder injury but still managed to finish 12th overall in fantasy running back scoring. He was having another fine overall season before getting injured, finishing with 1,174 total yards and six touchdowns. His total yards was a career high. He is yet to have a 1,000-yard rushing season, though. Ingram is the top back in this productive offense. He is a big, physical back capable of moving the pile while running well between the tackles. He is a punishing runner with good vision and the ability to break off some long runs despite just so-so speed. He has really improved as a receiver, getting on the field more and more in passing situations. Ingram has some injury concerns, missing games each of the past three seasons. Fantasy Outlook: Ingram has injury issues but can be a top-five fantasy back if he plays a full season in this offense. Consider him a low-end No. 1 because of the injury concerns, though. He can get around 1,500 total yards and 10 touchdowns with around 50 receptions.
 #14  Dez Bryant (WR) DallasBye: 7 
 
Player News:
Bryant had his third straight huge season, finishing with a career-high 16 touchdowns. He was a touchdown machine, scoring in all but five games. Bryant also had four 100-yard games and finished with more than 1,300 yards. Bryant has three straight seasons with at least 12 touchdowns and 1,200-receiving yards. He is in the prime of his career as the No. 1 receiver for the Cowboys. Bryant has top speed and a knack for making big plays. He also has great hands, giving him the ability to make some spectacular catches. He has natural ability for the position. Bryant still doesn't have the best attitude on and off the field but this hasn't been a huge issue to date.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Bryant is a top-five fantasy receiver. It will be hard for him to repeat his touchdown numbers from last year but his reception and yardage totals could rise some. He should be taken in the first two rounds come draft day. A season with around 95 receptions, 1,400 yards and 13 touchdowns seems about right for Bryant in 2015.

 #15  Kelvin Benjamin (WR) CarolinaBye: 7 
 
Player News:
Benjamin had a great rookie season with the Panthers. He was 16th in fantasy receiver scoring and had a 1,000-yard season. Benjamin finished with nine scores and 73 receptions, getting a whopping 145 targets. Benjamin was sixth in football in targets. He was the No. 1 receiver for the Panthers as a rookie. He should get better with more seasoning as a pro. Benjamin has great size for the receiver position and does a great job of catching nearly everything thrown his way because of his great wingspan. He is a top big-play receiver because of his size and strength, and does well in the red zone. He does lack some top speed, though, and still needs a little work on his route running. Benjamin was a little inconsistent at times his rookie year.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Benjamin tore his ACL during training camp and is out for the season. Take him off your draft boards.

 #16  Eddie Lacy (RB) Green BayBye: 4 
 
Player News:
Lacy had a hugely disappointing season last year, splitting work with James Starks much of the year. He ran for just more than 750 yards and scored just five touchdowns. He did have three 100-yard games but averred just four yards per carry. The Packers were not happy with his fitness and want him to lose a lot of weight this offseason. Lacy will get first crack at the starter's job as long as he is in shape. Lacy had two straight 1,000-yard seasons before last year. He is just 26 years old and should be in the prime of his career. Lacy has great size for the position and runs with a lot of power. He isn't a finesse back but has pretty good moves in space but does his best work between the tackles. He also isn't a bad receiver as evident by his reception totals his first three seasons. Lacy isn't a top big-play back but will break off some long runs in this top offense. Fantasy Outlook: Lacy can return to elite fantasy back status as long as he is in shape and motivated, which he should be after last season. Expect a rebound season. Lacy is a good buy-low candidate in this great offense. He can get around 1,300 total yards and double-digit scores with 30 or so receptions.
 #17  Thomas Rawls (RB) SeattleBye: 5 
 
 #18  Jeremy Langford (RB) ChicagoBye: 9 
 
Player News:
The Bears used a fourth-round pick on Langford, hoping to find the eventual replacement for Matt Forte. For now, Langford likely serves as the top backup for the team. Langford can do it all at running back. He can make big plays, run between the tackles and does very well as a receiver. He could bulk up a little and make more plays after contact to be a true three-down back in the NFL.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Langford doesn't have much potential unless Forte gets hurt. Until that happens, Langford probably isn't worth a roster spot unless you want to use him as a handcuff for Forte. He could get 400 or 500 total yards with a score or two.

 #19  C.J. Anderson (RB) DenverBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Anderson had an erratic season, failing to capitalize on his great finish to the previous year. The good news is Anderson finished last season very well and should have momentum going forward to this year. He split work much of the regular season, finishing with 903 total yards and five touchdowns. But he was the top runner for the Broncos during their Super Bowl run, having at least 72-rushing yards all three playoff games. He also scored twice and finished with 273 total yards. He should get first crack at the starter's job this season for the Broncos. Anderson knows what it takes now to earn that starting job. As long as he doesn't have a slip up during the offseason, the future is bright for Anderson this coming year. Anderson is a good fit for the offense. Anderson runs with some power but has some good moves when he gets outside the tackles. Anderson is best between the tackles, though, churning out the tough yards. He also catches the ball pretty well and continues to improve in that area. Fantasy Outlook: Anderson burnt many teams last year but you have to like his potential for the coming season. His price tag should be much cheaper. Don't be surprised if he emerges as a low-end No. 1 for fantasy teams. He can get around 1,400 total yards and double-digit touchdowns.
 #20  Demaryius Thomas (WR) DenverBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Thomas had his usual huge season, finishing second overall in fantasy scoring at receiver. Thomas had 100-yard games all but six. He finished with more than 1,600 yards and 11 touchdowns. He also eclipsed the 100-reception mark. Thomas had at least four receptions all but a game. Thomas is the top target in the Broncos high-flying offense. The Broncos were a little more conservative with their playing calling late in the year but Thomas still produced with that offense. He had three straight 100-yard games to end his season. Thomas has three straight seasons with 90-plus catches, 1,400-plus yards and double-digit scores. Thomas is a big, physical receiver, but also has top speed, making him a big-play threat whenever the ball is in his hands. He really is the complete package at receiver and should continue to excel in this offense.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Thomas is a steady, elite No. 1 fantasy receiver. He is a top-five option that is likely to be gone in the first two rounds come draft day. We don't see his numbers starting to take a dive even if the Broncos run a little more this season from day one. He'll still produce big. Expect around 100 receptions, 1,500 yards and double-digit scores.

 #21  A.J. Green (WR) CincinnatiBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Injury issues marred Green's season a little last year but his overall numbers weren't bad despite missing three games. He still had more than 1,000 yards and scored six touchdowns. His numbers would have been near the top of the league in many categories if he doesn't miss those games. Green had five 100-yard games, including a 224-yard performance in Week 14. Green has four straight 1,000-yard seasons to start his career. Green is a playmaker. He has size, speed and runs routes well for such a young player. Green is just reaching his potential as a receiver and is in the prime of his career. He can make a case for being the best receiver in the game.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Don't get down on him after last season. He is an elite fantasy receiver that will produce consistent numbers for fantasy teams. He gets a ton of targets and is the clear favorite receiver of Andy Dalton. His numbers will rebound this year, finishing with around 100 receptions for 1,500 yards and 12 touchdowns.

 #22  Jeremy Hill (RB) CincinnatiBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Hill had a very disappointing second season. He averaged just 3.6 yards per carry and failed to have a 100-yard game all year. The thing that saved him for fantasy teams was his scores, getting 12 overall touchdowns. The touchdowns helped him finished 20th overall in fantasy running back scoring despite rushing for fewer than 800 yards and catching just 15 passes. He also had fumbling issues, losing three during the regular season and a big one during the Bengals only playoff game. Hill needs to get it together this offseason if he hopes to remain a big part of this offense. He needs to get in better shape and find a way to hold onto the ball better. He'll split duties again this year but will get first crack at getting the most carries for the Bengals. Hill is a big back that does a good job of getting downhill in a hurry. Hill also catches the ball pretty well, having 42 receptions in two seasons despite getting little chances in that area. He doesn't have great moves in space but will surprise with his speed and agility. Fantasy Outlook: Hill was a bust last year but is young enough to turn it around. Don't totally give up on him yet, especially if he keeps getting the goal-line work in the explosive offense. But for now, you have to consider him more of a No. 2 back for fantasy teams. You can't overpay for him because he gets little work in the passing game. He can finish with around 1,100 total yards and double-digit scores.
 #23  Doug Martin (RB) Tampa BayBye: 6 
 
Player News:
Martin was a big surprise last year, finishing fourth overall in fantasy running back scoring after doing little the last few seasons. He had a big rebound year, being surrounded by better offensive talent. Martin topped 1,400-rushing yards and caught 33 passes. He finished with 1,673 total yards and seven touchdowns. He had four 100-yard rushing games and double-digit carries every game. His rushing totals weren't a career high but the firs time he had 1,000 yards since his rookie year. Martin proved he still has plenty left in the tank at age 27. He'll continue to be a big part of this offense. Martin does well between the tackles but also has enough speed to break plays to the outside. He isn't a huge back but runs with some power and has good moves in the open field. He also is a good receiver out of the backfield, giving him another way to touch the ball often. Fantasy Outlook: The only knock on Martin is he loses out on some goal-line chances. The rest of his resume looks great right now. He can near last season's numbers in this offense. Martin can get around 1,500 total yards and eight touchdowns with 35 or so receptions. He is a late first or second-round pick.
 #24  Latavius Murray (RB) OaklandBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Murray was the starter from day one last season and enjoyed his first 1,000-yard season as a pro. He had nearly 1,300 total yards and six touchdowns. Murray had just two 100-yard games despite getting double-digit carries in every game. He did well as a receiver, though, catching 41 passes. He tried to make the big play too often at times last year, which led to him averaging just four yards per carry. He is the starter for the Raiders, though, and should continue to grow in that role. Murray is more of a power back but has enough speed to make plays on the outside. Murray has great size for the position and runs with power. He also has pretty good speed for his size and catches the ball well out of the backfield. He does a little bit of everything and does it all pretty well. Fantasy Outlook: Murray can build on last season and be a top-10 or even top-five fantasy back in this emerging offense. He is a fantasy player on the rise. He is a rare three-down back that can get around 1,500 total yards and nine touchdowns with 40 or so receptions.
 #25  Matt Forte (RB) New York JetsBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Forte missed three games because of injury last season but still finished eighth overall in fantasy running back scoring. He had another very productive year as the starter for the Bears. Forte had 1,287 total yards and seven touchdowns in 13 games. He did have just one 100-yard rushing game but his 44 receptions helped pad his overall yardage totals. Forte is 30 years old this season and missed some time because of injury last year, so you have to wonder how much he has left in the tank. A move to the Jets isn't a bad thing for Forte, getting to play in a more run-first offense. He should get his touches with his new team. Forte has 1,000-yard rushing seasons five of eight. He has more than 1,000 total yards every season in the NFL. Forte has good size and runs hard. He isn't a huge big-play back but will make some big plays. He'll churn out some tough yards and make a lot of plays out of the backfield as a receiver. Forte is a solid overall NFL back. Fantasy Outlook: Forte could slow down a little this year but still consider him a low-end No. 1 for fantasy teams, especially with the position being watered down a little. He has been very consistent through the years, so expect around 1,500 total yards and double-digit scores. He'll continue to get plenty of work in the passing game for the Jets.
 #26  Cam Newton (QB) CarolinaBye: 7 
 
Player News:
Despite losing his top receiver before the start of the season, Newton had an MVP-season for the Panthers and fantasy teams. He finished first overall in fantasy quarterback scoring, setting several career highs. He had 35-passing touchdowns to just 10 interceptions and ran in other 10 scores, giving him 45 total touchdowns. Newton had a touchdown in every game and multiple scores all but three. He had an unbelievable season, taking a big step forward in his career. Newton has a huge arm and can make big-time plays with his legs. He shows some immaturity at times, especially when dealing with the press, but has made strides in that area. He will force some passes at times but is pretty accurate throwing the ball for the most part. He throws a good deep ball and runs as well as any quarterback in the game. He will continue to be the centerpiece of the Panthers' offense.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Newton is our top rated fantasy quarterback. He is the real deal and could be even better this year with Kelvin Benjamin back in the mix. Even with that said, it might be hard for him to repeat last year's huge statistical seasons. But he'll still produce great for fantasy teams in the prime of his career. He can throw for around 4,000 yards, rush for 650 or so and get 40 total scores.

 #27  Allen Robinson (WR) JacksonvilleBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Robinson missed the last six games of his rookie season because of a stress fracture in his foot but had a productive season before the injury. He was emerging as a dependable target in the passing game for the Jaguars. Robinson had 50-plus yards in all but three of the games he played. If Robinson plays a full season, he finishes with 77 receptions for 877 yards and three touchdowns, which is not too shabby for a rookie in this offense. Robinson should challenge for a chance to start from day one this year or at least serve as the No. 3 for the Jaguars. Robinson has decent size for the position and is a good deep threat because of his height and athleticism. He can really jump and make the tough catch. He does struggle with some drops and could use some help with his route running.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Robinson has a chance to build on last season if the Jaguars make more strides offensively, which seems likely. He still isn't a top fantasy option but could help as a No. 3 before it is all said and done this year. Robinson can get around 80 receptions for 1,000 yards with six or so scores.

 #28  Andrew Luck (QB) IndianapolisBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Luck had a very disappointing season for fantasy owners. He struggled when playing and also missed a lot of time because of injury. It was a season to forget for Luck, completing just 55 percent of his passes. He did have 15 touchdowns in seven games but was intercepted 12 times. He played more like a rookie than a veteran quarterback. Luck has the talent to turn things around, though, especially in this offense. Luck is a cerebral quarterback that is accurate and seems to know his limitations. He will force the ball at times, though, and still doesn't have the decision making you would hope at this stage of his career. Luck doesn't have a huge arm but it is strong enough to make all the throws. The Colts continue to struggle running the ball, giving Luck plenty of chances to air it out.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Don't forget that Luck was the top fantasy quarterback in the game just two seasons back. He is still very capable of being the top fantasy quarterback this season. Expect a much better season from Luck, who has a lot to prove after last year. He is a top-five option in our eyes. He can near 5,000 yards and around 40 total touchdowns. His interception totals will be a little higher than some of the elite guys, getting around 15 or so.

 #29  Alshon Jeffery (WR) ChicagoBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Jeffery took a bit of a step backwards last season but most of it wasn't his fault, as the offense and his quarterback struggled. But even with that said, Jeffery was still 10th in fantasy scoring at receiver and finished with more than 1,000 yards and 10 touchdowns. Jeffery had just three 100-yard games but had more than 70 yards nine of 16 games. He produced pretty good numbers despite the turmoil in Chicago. A new coaching staff and offense should be a good thing for Jeffery this season. He is the No. 1 target in this offense. Jeffery is the complete package. His route running has really improved since entering the league, and Jeffery does a great job of hauling in nearly everything thrown his way. He also is a great deep threat because of his size, speed and leaping ability.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Jeffery is an elite fantasy receiver, a top-10 option this season. Don't overlook that he was 10th in receiver scoring despite all sorts of issues in Chicago last year. He should be able to improve on his numbers from last season, giving him good value in 2015. We look for Jeffery to have around 95 receptions for 1,300 yards and 11 or so touchdowns.

 #30  Jamaal Charles (RB) Kansas CityBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Charles had a bit of a down year for his standards but was still seventh in running back scoring, finishing with more than 1,300 total yards. He had just one 100-yard rushing game, though, which was a big drop from the previous year. Charles scored 14 touchdowns, which boosted his overall fantasy numbers. He found the end zone on a regular basis. Charles also caught the ball well, having 40 receptions. Charles has 1,000-yard rushing seasons five of six years and two straight with double-digit scores. Charles has top speed, great moves and even runs with some power despite weighing less than 200 pounds. He is the complete package at running back. Charles also catches the ball well, having 27 or more receptions in each of his full seasons. Charles is 28 years old but doesn't have a crazy amount of touches compared to other backs, so he doesn't seem to be slowing down just yet.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Charles is a top-five fantasy back. He can rebound from last season, especially in the reception department. He should get more chances to catch the ball. We love his touchdown potential in this offense and his total yardage upside. Charles is capable of leading all backs in fantasy scoring. Expect around 1,800 total yards and 15 scores with 50 receptions.

 #31  Ryan Mathews (RB) PhiladelphiaBye: 4 
 
Player News:
Mathews had double-digit carries just four times for the Eagles last season but made the most of his work, averaging five yards per carry. He scored seven touchdowns and finished with 685 total yards. He seemed a better fit for the Eagles offense than starter DeMarco Murray. And with Murray gone, Mathews should get first shot to start this year for the Eagles. Mathews runs with power, but also has good speed and explosiveness, a rare combination at running back. Mathews doesn't have great moves in the open field but still has some big-play ability. Mathews does well as a blocker and is a capable receiver. Fantasy Outlook: Mathews looks a lot better in a starting role this year. You always have to worry about him getting hurt but he as long as he is playing, he has big total yardage potential. He is a dual threat with past success. Take him as a low-end No. 2 but don't be surprised if he surpasses that draft sot. Mathews can get around 1,300 total yards and eight or nine touchdowns.
 #32  Carlos Hyde (RB) San FranciscoBye: 8 
 
Player News:
A foot injury caused Hyde to play about half the season last year. He eventually needed surgery on the foot but should be fine for the coming year. He had a great first game to the season but didn't do a whole lot after that with the entire 49ers offense struggling. Hyde had more than 60-rushing yards just once after Week 1. He averaged just four yards per carry and finished with 521 total yards in seven games. Hyde should return to the starting lineup this year but might have some company competing for carries. Hyde will need to play more consistent football to keep his starting job. Hyde is a big, powerful back that can carry the load. He also catches the ball well. He really is a three-down back. He does lack some elite speed, though, and doesn't have great moves. He is more of a banger. Fantasy Outlook: Hyde isn't going to go nearly as high this season in drafts but still has some potential in this offense. The 49ers played much better offensively down the stretch compared to early in the year. If they keep that up, Hyde can be a solid No. 2 for fantasy teams. He could get 1,200 or so total yards and eight touchdowns with around 30 receptions.
 #33  Sammy Watkins (WR) BuffaloBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Watkins had a decent rookie season, especially if you consider the poor quarterback play he had to deal with most of the year. He had just fewer than 1,000 yards and scored six touchdowns. Watkins had four 100-yard games and showed his big-play ability, averaging 15.1 yards per reception. He is going to be the No. 1 receiver for years to come in Buffalo. Watkins is the complete package at receiver. He is a great athlete with top speed and good hands. He does a great job of turning a short pass into a long play. He has great moves after the catch. Watkins also can stretch the field in a hurry because of his speed. He still needs a little work on his route running but is improving in that area.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Better quarterback play will be the factor for Watkins this season. If the quarterback plays better, Watkins could be a top 10 fantasy receiver. If it is more of the same from last year, Watkins isn't anything more than a No. 3. So for now, take him somewhere in the middle of those two. Look for a season with around 80 receptions for 1,200 yards and eight or nine touchdowns. Watkins is a player on the rise.

 #34  Amari Cooper (WR) OaklandBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Cooper was the first receiver taken in this year's draft and with good reason. He should be the top target for the Raiders passing game for years to come. He is the complete package at receiver. Cooper gets in and out of his breaks with great speed. He makes a lot of plays downfield but also can be a top possession receiver because of his great hands. He has good strength for the position but doesn't play overly physical. He might need to toughen up a tad in the NFL but should with time.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Cooper is going to make a fantasy impact his rookie season. He can be a legit No. 2 fantasy receiver right now. Expect around 75 receptions for 1,000 yards and seven touchdowns. Cooper has a chance to be a real superstar in this league.

 #35  Julio Jones (WR) AtlantaBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Jones missed a game because of injury and scored just six touchdowns but still managed to finish sixth in fantasy scoring at receiver. He produced big numbers, shattering career highs in receptions and yards. It was the first time in his career he finished with more than 100 receptions and 1,500 yards. Jones made some big plays all season, especially down the stretch. Jones had 189 or more yards two of the last four games he played last season. He is the clear top target in the Falcons' offense, an offense that doesn't run a whole lot. Jones is a big target with size and strength. Jones is a physical receiver that runs solid routes and has plus hands. He doesn't have top speed, but proved his first four seasons he can be a home-run threat and run away from defenders. Jones has played a full season just once in four years, making him a bit of an injury risk.

Fantasy Outlook:  
There are always injury concerns for Jones but he is the real deal whenever he is on the field. He has a legit chance to finish first overall in fantasy scoring at receiver this season. We think his low touchdown total was a fluke more than anything. When he gets those touchdown numbers up, watch out. We like him to finish with around 110 receptions for 1,600 yards and 12 touchdowns.

 #36  Brandon Marshall (WR) New York JetsBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Marshall missed the last three games of the season because of a rib injury but wasn't having his usual season before the injury. He had just two 100-yard games and was set to finish with around 1,000 yards. His numbers were down compared to past seasons, but the Bears' offense was a mess much of the year, especially at the quarterback spot. This didn't help the numbers of Marshall. One positive for Marshall was he scored eight touchdowns in 13 games. Marshall had seven straight 1,000-yard seasons before last year. He has five seasons with 100-plus receptions, producing as well as most receivers in football the last several seasons. Marshall is 31 years old and has a lot of mileage on his body but hasn't shown many signs of slowing down just yet. He can still serve as a top starter, a role his new team, the Jets, will want him to hold this season. Marshall is a huge target with great hands. Marshall makes a ton of plays after the catch, which is amazing for a receiver of his size. He is tough to bring down once the ball is in his hands because of his size.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Marshall could be slowing down some, but we still think he can rebound from last year, even though he is playing with the Jets. But even with that said, he shouldn't be in that elite category at receiver right now. He is just outside that group. Marshall can get around 90 receptions for 1,100 yards and 8 or so touchdowns.

 #37  Mike Evans (WR) Tampa BayBye: 6 
 
Player News:
Evans had a tremendous rookie receiver, emerging as the top target in the passing game for the Bucs. Despite the Bucs having all sorts of issues at quarterback, Evans still had a 1,000-yard season and scored 12 touchdowns, which was one of the best touchdown totals in all of football. He had three 100-yard games and scored seven of his last nine game of the season. He didn't always produce big yardage numbers but was consistently a top target in the red zone for the Buds. He'll continue to play a big role in the passing game going forward. Evans is a huge target with an enormous wing span. He does a fabulous job of catching the back-shoulder fade. His size and strength makes him a very tough cover in the passing game. He does lack some speed, though, but that didn't hold him back much last season.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Evans can build on his rookie season. We aren't sure his touchdown totals will increase but expect his yards and receptions to go up, especially if the team gets better quarterback play. Evans can be a low-end No. 1 for fantasy teams this season. He can get 80 receptions for 1,200 or so yards and 10 touchdowns.

 #38  Tom Brady (QB) New EnglandBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Brady had a great season, especially if you consider all the injuries he dealt with at receiver and offensive line. Brady finished second overall in fantasy quarterback scoring. Brady had 39 total touchdowns to just seven interceptions. He had seven 300-yard games and threw for more than 4,700 yards. Brady is 39 years old but has shown few signs of slowing down. Brady has eight 4,000-yard seasons for his career and 30-plus scores six of the last eight full seasons. Brady does a great job of distributing the ball to all his options and rarely turns the ball over. He has a strong arm and is extremely accurate. Brady knows the offense well and makes the most of his abilities.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Brady returned to elite status last year, proving his worth to fantasy teams. He won't go nearly as late this season and should be considered a top-five option at quarterback. Brady can get around 4,500 yards and 40 touchdowns with 10 or so interceptions.

 #39  Aaron Rodgers (QB) Green BayBye: 4 
 
Player News:
Rodgers had a down year for his standards. He failed to top 4,000-passing yards but did have 32 total touchdowns to just eight interceptions. He still did a great job of limiting turnovers and producing points. But a suspect offensive line and receivers failing to separate hurt Rodgers last year. He also held onto the ball longer than usual for him. Rodgers also is an underrated runner. He has at least 200-rushing yards and two rushing touchdowns seven of the last eight seasons. This part of his game can be overlooked, but is a real asset. Rodgers has a great arm and is extremely accurate. He makes plays with his feet and is normally very durable. The Packers should have a better group of receivers this year with Jordy Nelson back from injury. The Packers will continue to pass often but are a little more balanced these days than past year.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Rodgers had a down year last year and was still seventh in quarterback scoring. Expect him to rebound this season and be a top-five fantasy quarterback once again. He'll throw for 4,000-plus yards and score around 40 touchdowns with around 300-rushing yards.

 #40  Drew Brees (QB) New OrleansBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Brees proved he still has something left in the tank last season, finishing sixth overall in fantasy scoring. Brees had a great finish to his sason, having three-touchdown games three of his last five, scoring 12 touchdowns to just one interception during that stretch. He threw for nearly 5,000 yards and had 33 total touchdowns to 11 interceptions. Brees has eight straight seasons with 33 or more touchdowns. He also has 5,000 yards four of eight seasons. And at age 36, he still looks like he has good years left in the tank. He knows the offense inside and out and produces at a high level for the team. Brees is extremely accurate, makes great decisions, and spreads the wealth to a host of options in the offense. The Saints try to have a balanced offense, but remain pass-first with Brees at the helm. He makes the offense tick for the Saints.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Brees remains a solid fantasy play. He dropped some in the rankings last year but his play during the season should validate him as a top option again in 2016. He is a good bet to throw for around 5,000 yards and score 35 touchdowns. He is a consistent factor from week to week, which is another huge plus. He gets his weekly chances to air it out in this offense.

 #41  Ben Roethlisberger (QB) PittsburghBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Roethilsberger missed four games because of injury but had great overall numbers much of the year. He threw for nearly 4,000 yards and had 21 touchdowns. The one issue he struggled with were some interceptions, getting picked off 16 times. He posted big yardage numbers, though, moving this passing game up and down the field. He had eight 300-yard games. Roethlisberger has 4,000-yard seasons four of his last seven. He plays in an offense that is becoming one of the best passing games in all of football. Roethilsberger has a great arm and is an accurate passer. He might be the best quarterback in the game at prolonging a play because of his size and strength. Injuries have slowed him some in recent seasons but he was able to play a full year two of the past three seasons.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Roethilsberger tends to get nicked up but if he plays a full season, he can be a top-five fantasy quarterback in this offense. He could even challenge to be the top overall fantasy quarterback because of the great options around him. He can near 5,000 yards and score 35 touchdowns. He is a legit No. 1 for fantasy teams.

 #42  T Y Hilton (WR) IndianapolisBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Despite really missing the last two games (played sparingly the last week), Hilton still had a career season. He had more than 1,300 yards as the Colt No. 1 receiver. Hilton had seven 100-yard games, including a 223-yard showing in Week 6. Hilton was targeted 131 times on the season, getting a ton of weekly looks in the Colts pass-first offense. He remains the top target for the offense for the coming year. Hilton has back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons and is in the prime of his career at age 25. Hilton is a small receiver that lacks some strength and size, but makes up for that with plus hands and big-play ability. Hilton is an explosive player with big-play ability whenever he touches the ball.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Hilton is just outside that elite group of fantasy receivers but should be considered a No. 1 for fantasy teams. He can improve on last season, especially his touchdown totals. Hilton is a player on the rise that is capable of big things. He can get around 90 receptions for 1,400 yards and nine or 10 touchdowns. Remember, he was 11th in receiver scoring last season, his third in the league.

 #43  Jay Ajayi (RB) MiamiBye: 8 
 
Player News:
A hamstring injury slowed Ajayi early his rookie season but he found the field about halfway through the season and showed some good things. He didn't have double-digit rushes in a game and had 277 total yards in 10 games. He played second fiddle to starter Lamar Miller, hurting his chances for much playing time. There is a chance he is the starter from day one this year, though. Ajayi has great moves in space and is tough to bring down once he gets the ball in his hands. He catches the ball pretty well and has the makeup to be a three-down back in the league. Ajayi will try to make the big play too much, though, and needs to do a better job of hitting the hole in a hurry. Fantasy Outlook: Ajayi is an intriguing back for the coming year. He has some real potential if he plays a three-down role, which is very possible He could get around 1,200 total yards and seven or eight touchdowns in this offense. He could be a solid No. 2 for fantasy teams.
 #44  DeVante Parker (WR) MiamiBye: 8 
 
Player News:
The Dolphins used their first-round pick in this year's draft on Parker, hoping to find their No. 1 receiver for years to come. He should start from day one of his rookie season. Parker is a big target that does a great job of stretching the field and making the acrobatic catch. He is a playmaker. Parker could sharpen his route running some, but should get better in that area with more experience.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Parker has a lot of potential his rookie season in this offense, an offense that will throw often. If he forms a quick rapport with Ryan Tannehill, watch out. For now, expect around 70 receptions for 1,000 yards and seven scores. He is a solid No. 2 or 3 for fantasy teams his rookie season.

 #45  DeMarco Murray (RB) TennesseeBye: 13 
 
Player News:
Murray had a disappointing first season with the Eagles. He didn't seem a good fit for the new offense and fell in coach Chip Keily's doghouse, leading Murray to fall all the way to No. 3 on the depth chart at one point during the season. Even with that all said, Murray still finished 15th overall in fantasy running back scoring. He had more than 1,000 total yards and scored seven touchdowns. He had fewer than 200 carries, though, after having nearly 400 the previous year. He was traded to the Titans during the offseason and takes over as the lead back for his new team. He has some competent for carries, though, with the Titans drafting Derrick Henry in the second round. These backs could split a lot of work his year. Murray is the complete package at running back. He is a home-run threat every time he touches the ball. Murray isn't a huge back but has decent strength. He has elite speed and great moves in the open field. Murray also is a very good receiver out of the backfield. Fantasy Outlook: Murray has some durability concerns because of all his touches the last few years and the addition of Henry really hurts his stock. He is going to eat into his workload. Murray will still get plenty of touches but could be a little more erratic. Consider him more of a No. 2 back for fantasy teams. He can get around 1,100 total yards and eight touchdowns.
 #46  LeSean McCoy (RB) BuffaloBye: 10 
 
Player News:
McCoy had a little bit of an erratic first season with the Bills. He had some big games along the way but disappeared in others. His overall numbers were solid despite missing four games because of injury. He had 1,187 total yards and five touchdowns, finishing 17th in fantasy running back scoring. McCoy had eight games with 100-plus total yards, playing his best football the second half of the season before hurting his knee and missing the last two games. McCoy should be the top back and a big focal point of the offense this season. McCoy is 28 years old but has a lot of touches in his seven-year NFL career. McCoy probably isn't hitting the wall just yet but getting a few less touches this season wouldn't be a huge surprise. McCoy is an elusive back with great hands. He just makes plays in space. McCoy also is a much better runner these days between the tackles, making some tough runs throughout the past few seasons. Fantasy Outlook: McCoy could lose more work to Karlos Williams this year, but he still has plenty of value in this offense. He'll get his work and should get around 1,100 total yards and eight touchdowns with 40 or so receptions. He can still really help fantasy teams.
 #47  Arian Foster (RB) ---Bye: - 
 
Player News:
Despite missing three games because of injury, Foster still finished fifth in fantasy running back scoring last season. He was force when on the field, having seven 100-yard games. He had 1,573 total yards, averaging 121 total yards per game. He also scored 13 touchdowns. Foster was the focal point of the Texans' offense and produced big number despite teams keying on stopping him. Foster is 29 years old and battled injury the last few seasons. He has a ton of carries under his belt and you have to wonder how much he really has left in the tank. He will be the No. 1 back in this offense as long as he is healthy, though. When healthy, Foster is a complete back. Foster has size, speed, vision and plus hands. He does a great job of setting his blocks and hitting the hole in a hurry. Foster might have the best vision of any back in the game.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Foster carries more risk than your usual No. 1 backs. He fell some last year in drafts because of injury and ended up being a steal for many fantasy teams. Unfortunately, he won't fall as far this season, making him a riskier pick because of his health concerns. Foster has huge upside if healthy, though. He can carry a fantasy team. Expect around 1,500 total yards and 12 touchdowns, but also prepare for him to miss a few games.

 #48  Chris Ivory (RB) JacksonvilleBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Ivory had his first 1,000-yard season as a pro last year. He had his best overall year, finishing 11th overall in fantasy running back scoring. He also set a career high in receptions, catching 30 passes. This was a big boost for his fantasy production. Ivory had three 100-yard rushing games and scored eight touchdowns. He had double-digit carries all but two games. Ivory has 800-plus rushing yards three straight seasons. He has 28 years old and should have a few more seasons left but moves to more of a timeshare this season, signing with the Jaguars. He'll get most of the short-yardage work and some other carries throughout the game. Ivory is a big back that runs with power but also has decent speed and the ability to make some big plays. He isn't polished as a receiver but improving in that area, helping his chances to be more of a three-down back. Fantasy Outlook: Ivory has some value because he is going to score some touchdowns in this offense, but his numbers are going to take a hit in a timeshare. Consider him a No. 3 or 4 fantasy back in his current role. He can get around 700-rushing yards with 15 receptions and eight or so scores. He isn't going to have many huge games but should be pretty consistent.
 #49  Danny Woodhead (RB) San DiegoBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Woodhead was an elite fantasy back last year, finishing third overall in fantasy running back scoring in PPR formats. He had an amazing 81 receptions, catching more passes than many receivers last season. He had at least three receptions all but two games. He had five-plus receptions nine times. He finished with 1,091 total yards and nine touchdowns. He had more than 50-rushing yards just twice all season but made up for that with all his work in the passing game. Woodhead has 75-plus receptions two of three seasons with the Chargers. Expect him to play a similar role this season. Woodhead is a very small back, but has great speed and moves in the open field. His lack of size will prevent him from being an every-down back, but he can be a top change-of-pace option. He might be the best receiving back in the game right now. Fantasy Outlook: Woodhead has huge value in PPR formats. It is hard to count on him to score all those touchdowns again but he can get 70-plus receptions in this pass-first offense. Woodhead is overlooked a little but the numbers don't lie. He'll produce on a consistent basis, getting around 1,000 total yards and seven or eight touchdowns.
 #50  T.J. Yeldon (RB) JacksonvilleBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Yeldon had a very productive rookie campaign, finishing with 1,019 total yards and three touchdowns in 12 games. He had his season cut short because of a sprained knee but proved his worth in the starting lineup before the injury. He had two 100-yard gams and caught an impressive 36 passes. He did struggle some running the all at time, averaging just 4.1 yards per carry, but the offensive line wasn't doing a great job of opening holes for him in this pass-first offense. Yeldon is the future at the position for the Jaguars and should continue to start for years to come, but he moves to more a timeshare this season with Chris Ivory on board. Yeldon is a big back that runs with power and can be an asset as a blocker. He lacks a big-time second gear, but still made some big plays last year because of his quickness and moves in space. He'll also help in the passing game. He needs to improve on hitting the hole in a hurry and being more decisive with his runs but that should come with time. Fantasy Outlook: Yeldon would be an intriguing fantasy back in his second NFL season if not for Ivory taking some work and the goal-line chances. He still has some real total yardage potential in an emerging offense, but consider him more of a low-end No. 2 or 3 fantasy back. He can get around 1,200 total yards and five or six touchdowns with 40 or so receptions.
 #51  Justin Forsett (RB) BaltimoreBye: 8 
 
Player News:
A broken arm ended Forsett's season early, missing the last six games. He was producing before the injury, having 794 total yards and two touchdowns in 10 games. If he plays a full season, Forsett finishes with 1,270 total yards and three scores. He had two 100-yard rushing games and at least four receptions six of 10 games. He lost out on goal-line chances, though, which hurt his fantasy value. He should get another shot to start this season but nothing is guaranteed. Remember, he is 30 years old and has been a lead back just a few times during his career. Forsett is a big-play back. He doesn't have great size but proved he could carry the load as a lead back the last few seasons. Forsett possesses very good speed and moves in space. He is a playmaker, averaging 4.9 yards per carry for his career. Fantasy Outlook: Forsett is a bit of a wild card this year. He has some question marks. The good thing is he doesn't have a ton of carries under his belt, so he could remain pretty fresh at this stage of his career. Consider him a solid No. 2 back. He can get around 1,200 total yards and six or seven scores with 40 receptions.
 #52  Blake Bortles (QB) JacksonvilleBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Borltes took a big leap his second season in the league. He finished fourth overall in fantasy quarterback scoring. He was a top-five fantasy quarterback just his second season in the NFL. Bortles had nearly 4,500-passing yards and 37 total touchdowns to 18 interceptions. He had touchdowns in all but the last game of the year. He had six 300-yard games and five three-touchdown games. He was a consistent force in a pass-first offense. The Jaguars still don't have much of a running game but two of the best young receivers in the game. Bortles should continue to air it out often. Bortles has great size, a plus arm and is a good athlete. He has a very strong arm. His delivery remains a bit long but has improved some since entering the league. He is reading defenses much better but needs to improve his decision making more. Bortles still turns the ball over too much.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Last season wasn't a fluke for Bortles. He is the real deal for fantasy teams. He can be a top-five fantasy quarterback once again. He can throw for 4,500 yards with 35 total scores and 350-rushing yards. Borltes is a fantasy star on the rise.

 #53  Eli Manning (QB) New York GiantsBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Manning had another good fantasy season, finishing eighth overall in quarterback season. He'll make some bad decisions and throws but his overall numbers are normally good at the end of the day. Manning set a career high in passing touchdowns last season, throwing 35. This gives him two straight season with 30 or more scores. He had six 300-yard games and topped 4,000 yards for the second straight season. Manning plays in a quarterback-friendly system that suits his game well. Manning has been helped by Odell Beckham, who has taken Manning's numbers to a new level. Expect more of the same this year. Manning has 26 or more touchdowns six of the past seven years and 4,000 yards five of six seasons. At age 35, he still has plenty left in the tank. Manning has a good arm and is an accurate quarterback. He still makes some bad decisions but has improved in that are a little. Manning also is durable, playing every game the last 11 seasons.

Fantasy Outlook:  
He isn't flash but Manning is a solid starter for fantasy teams. He gets the job done and should be a top-10 quarterback once again. He is a good guy to grab after the elite guys are taken. You can expect around 4,500 yards and 35 scores for Manning.

 #54  Jeremy Maclin (WR) Kansas CityBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Maclin finally had that breakout season, serving as the No. 1 receiver for the Eagles high-flying offense. Maclin had his first 1,000-yard season and finished ninth overall in fantasy scoring at receiver. Maclin had more than 1,300 yards and 10 touchdowns. Maclin had at least two catches every game and four 100-yard games. He did have five games with fewer than 50 yards, but we pretty consistent much of the season. Maclin is a big-play receiver. He has top speed and a knack for making big plays. Maclin is a much improved route runner and does a great job of making plays after the catch. Maclin also does well in finding the end zone, having two double-digit touchdown seasons. He does have a bit of an injury history but played a full season last year and looked great in the process.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Maclin is a legit top fantasy receiver. He is capable of finishing as a top-10 fantasy receiver once again. He is capable of the big game any given week and has good red-zone potential. We think he is capable of improving some on last season, especially if you consider he was coming off a torn ACL last year and still produced great numbers. He could get around 90 receptions for 1,400 yards and double-digit touchdowns.

 #55  Randall Cobb (WR) Green BayBye: 4 
 
Player News:
Cobb had a career season, finishing with career highs in receptions, yards and touchdowns. He finally played a full year and produced huge numbers for the Packers. Cobb had five 100-yard games and at least three receptions in every game. He finished with 91 receptions and 12 touchdowns. Cobb was seventh in fantasy scoring at receiver. Cobb isn't a big receiver, but runs solid routes and makes plays in space. He does well in multiple receiver sets, being able to serve several different receivers spots. Cobb has plus hands and just seems to make the big play.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Cobb had a breakout year last season and is ready to continue that trend going forward. He has a ton of talent and is capable of the monster game any given week. He is a bit of an injury risk, which downgrades him a tad, but not much. We look for him to have around 90 receptions for 1,100 yards and 10 touchdowns.

 #56  Matt Jones (RB) WashingtonBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Jones flashed plenty of potential his rookie season but fumbles marred much of his season. He finished with 794 total yards and four touchdowns. He made some big plays along the way, especially early in the year when he had his only 100-yard game in Week 2. Jones will get his chance to start from day one this year but will need to win the job. He needs to get his ball security issues under control and take what the defense give him instead of trying to make the big play often. Jones has the potential to be a top back in this league, though. Jones does a good job of hitting the hole in a hurry and is a home run threat with the ball in his hands. Jones catches the ball pretty well and can be a three-down back if all goes well for him. Fantasy Outlook: Jones has a chance for a big season if all goes well for him but has some question marks heading into the season. Because of that, consider him more of a low-end No. 2 or flex play for fantasy teams. He can get around 1,000 total yards and six touchdowns with 30 or so receptions.
 #57  Allen Hurns (WR) JacksonvilleBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Hurns was a big surprise for the Jaguars, emerging as one of the most reliable targets in the passing game his rookie season. Hurns was an undrafted rookie, so his impact was expected to be minimal, which wasn't the case. Hurns had two 100-yard games and finished 23 yards shy of 700-receiving yards. He also scored six touchdowns, having two multiple touchdown games. Hurns should compete for a No. 2 or 3 receiver job this season. He is a big target with good speed and big-play ability. His route running needs to continue to get better, but Hurns is making strides in that area. Hurns also needs to show better consistency with his hands.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Hurns isn't going to be a big-time fantasy player but could help as a spot starter for fantasy teams. He could improve a little on last season, getting around 60 catches for 700 yards and five or so touchdowns.

 #58  Dorial Green-Beckham (WR) TennesseeBye: 13 
 
Player News:
Green-Beckham didn't play a snap last year but that didn't prevent the Titans from using a second-round pick on the talented receiver. He'll get a chance to move into a starting role for the Titans his rookie season. Green-Beckham is a supremely talented player. He has great size and strength but also possesses surprising speed for a man of his size. He catches the ball well and has all the tools to be a top receiver in the league. He dropped to the second round of the draft, though, because of several off the field concerns. Green-Beckham has plenty of talent but also plenty of baggage.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Green-Beckham might take a bit to round into form after missing all of last season. He will get his chances in this offense, though, and has a chance to emerge as the go-to target before the season is out. Expect better things down the road but for now, he can finish with around 60 receptions for 900 yards and six touchdowns.

 #59  Keenan Allen (WR) San DiegoBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Allen was having a so-so season before breaking his collarbone, missing the last two games of the year. He had 77 receptions, which is solid, but just 783 yards and four touchdowns. Allen didn't make many big plays last season and was a dud in the red zone. He had three 100-yard games but also seven games with fewer than 50 yards. Allen was erratic as the No. 1 receiver for the Chargers. Allen is plenty young enough to get it going again, though. He remains the top target in this offense. Allen runs good routes and does a good job of just getting open. He is capable of turning a short play into a big one because of his quickness and moves in space. His hands were a concern entering his rookie season, but Allen really alleviated those concerns the last two seasons.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Allen looks like a good buy-low candidate for fantasy teams. He is going to lead this offense in targets and is a former 1,000-yard receiver that is very young. We look for him to maybe set career highs in 2015. Take him as a No. 2 and hope for the best. He can finish with 90 receptions for 1,000 yards and seven or eight touchdowns.

 #60  Emmanuel Sanders (WR) DenverBye: 11 
 
Player News:
A move to Denver was a great one for Sanders. He had a career season and finished with some of the best numbers in all of football. Sanders had more than 100 receptions and 1,400 yards with nine touchdowns. Sanders had seven 100-yard games and was fifth overall in fantasy scoring at receiver. Sanders should continue to be a huge part of the Broncos passing game. Sanders has top speed and can stretch the field in a hurry. He is a big-play threat in the passing game. Sanders also isn't a bad route runner, making his niche as a legit possession receiver the last few seasons.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Sanders could see his numbers dip some as Peyton Manning is another year older and the Broncos could run a little more. But even with that said, you have to like Sanders to produce well in this offense. He is a low-end No. 1 or elite No. 2 for fantasy teams. He will produce, getting around 90 receptions for 1,200 yards and eight touchdowns.

 #61  Julian Edelman (WR) New EnglandBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Edelman had his second straight huge season as the most productive wide receiver for the Patriots. He caught 92 passes and finished 28 yards shy of a 1,000-yard season despite missing a couple games because of injury. Edelman has 197 receptions the past two seasons. He should continue to be the top possession receiver for the Patriots. Edelman is a small target, but has good speed and hands. He does well on crossing routes and makings plays after the catch. Tom Brady trusts him in the passing game and throws his way often, especially when he needs to move the chains.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Edelman produced big numbers for a second straight season, especially for those in PPR formats. He keeps chugging along, getting catches and solid yardage totals. He isn't a top option in standard leagues but is a borderline No. 1 in PPR formats. He'll get around 100 receptions for 1,000 yards and five or so touchdowns.

 #62  Jonathan Stewart (RB) CarolinaBye: 7 
 
Player News:
Stewart had a very good season despite missing the last three games of the regular season with an ankle injury. He finished 11 yards shy of 1,000-rushing yards and scored seven touchdowns. He had double-digit carries every game for the Panthers. Stewart did average just 4.1 yards per carry, which wasn't a great number for all the work he got. Stewart hasn't played a full season since 2011 and has just one 1,000-yard season. Stewart is 29 years old and might be running out of time to continue to be a full-time starter. Stewart is a big back, but has plus speed and the ability to break a big play at any time. And he does well in the passing game, having 25 or more catches two of the past five seasons. Stewart does lack consistency at times but he has split work at running back much of his career. And he also is injury plagued, failing to play a full season four straight years. Fantasy Outlook: Stewart is an injury risk that struggled to make many big plays last season but if he is getting the work, he can help fantasy teams as a No. 2 back. Just expect him to miss a few games and not post game-changing numbers. He can get around 1,000 total yards and six touchdowns.
 #63  Brandin Cooks (WR) New OrleansBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Cooks was having a productive rookie season for the Saints until breaking his thumb, missing the last six games of the year. Before getting hurt, Cooks had 53 receptions for 550 yards in 10 games. If he plays a full season, Cooks finishes with 85 receptions for 880 yards and five touchdowns. Cooks didn't have a 100-yard game but was getting the touches, having at least three receptions all but a game. He'll continue to be a big part of the Saints passing game this season. Cooks isn't a big receiver but has great speed and moves after the catch. He also has good hands and runs pretty good routes for a young receiver. He seems to be a good fit for the Saints pass-first offense.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Cooks is going to get a lot of receptions and has a chance for a breakout season. His yardage totals won't be that of the top options but he can get 90 or so receptions for 1,000 yards and seven touchdowns. He has value as a No. 2 receiver for fantasy teams. Don't forget about him because he had his season cut short because of injury last year.

 #64  Jarvis Landry (WR) MiamiBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Landry was a rookie last year but the most dependable receiver for the Dolphins. He did a great job out of slot, catching more than 80 passes. Landry had at least three receptions in all but the first game of the year. Landry also had 50 or more yards five of the last six games to end his season. Landry didn't do a bad job of finding the end zone, scoring five times. Landry is going to be a big part of this offense for years to come. Landry isn't a big target but runs good routes and has solid hands. He isn't the biggest receiver but is a tough kid that will fight for every inch. Landry might not have the elite speed to play on the outside but is an ideal fit for the slot.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Landry won't surprise anyone this season. He is going to go much higher in drafts this season and for good reason. He is another young player on the rise. His touchdown totals won't be great but he can get 90 receptions for around 1,000 yards and six or so scores.

 #65  Karlos Williams (RB) BuffaloBye: 10 
 
Player News:
The Bills added another back to the mix, taking Williams in the fifth round of this year's draft. He'll likely be the No. 3 or 4 back for the Bills his rookie season. He'll get some weekly chances because of his big-play ability. He can get to the next gear in a hurry and has good moves in space. He is a little suspect between the tackles, though, and runs a little too upright for the position.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Williams will get sporadic work his rookie season. He could get around 500 total yards and a few scores. His value will be better in a few seasons after he moves up the depth chart for the team.

 #66  Larry Fitzgerald (WR) ArizonaBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Fitzgerald failed to hit the 1,000-yard mark for the third straight season. He did miss two games because of injury but still wouldn't have hit the mark if playing a full season. Fitzgerald had two 100-yard games and just two touchdowns. The good news is he was targeted 103 times during the season. Injury to Carson Palmer wasn't a positive for the Cardinals passing game, hurting Fitzgerald's numbers. Fitzgerald turns 32 before the start of the season, but still seems to have plenty left in the tank. He remains a top target in the offense. Fitzgerald doesn't have elite speed, but runs great routes and has plus hands. He is as athletic as any receiver in the game and just has a knack for getting open.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Fitzgerald isn't an elite option anymore but can rebound from last season. He'll get his receptions and usually is a dependable target in the red zone. Consider him more of a low-end No. 2 or 3 fantasy receiver for this season. He can get around 80 receptions for 1,000 yards and seven or so touchdowns.

 #67  Eric Decker (WR) New York JetsBye: 11 
 
Player News:
As expected, Decker saw a dip in production away from Denver. His overall numbers weren't too bad with the Jets, though. He padded his stats with a 10-catch, 221-yard game the last game of the year but started to produce better late in the year, which is encouraging. He had 100-yard games two of his last three to end the year. Decker was 38 yards shy of a 1,000-yard season but produced decent numbers despite poor quarterback play much of the year. Decker has good size (6-3) and strength, giving him the ability to stretch the field. Decker doesn't have top speed but still enough to make plenty of big plays. He does a great job of using his size to his advantage. Decker is a playmaker, especially in the red zone. Decker will drop some passes, though.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Decker has some value as a No. 3 for fantasy teams. He should be able to improve on last season and get over that 1,000-yard mark if he can stay healthy. The Jets should get better quarterback play, which isn't saying much. Decker can get around 85 receptions for 1,100 yards and seven touchdowns.

 #68  Doug Baldwin (WR) SeattleBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Baldwin had his best season as a pro last year, serving as the No. 1 receiver for the Seahawks much of the year. He set career highs in receptions and yards. Baldwin had just three touchdowns but managed 825-receiving yards. He had two 100-yard games and at least two catches every game of the year. Baldwin should continue to have a starting role for the Seahawks this season. He knows the offense well and has a solid rapport with quarterback Russell Wilson. Baldwin isn't a big target but has big-play potential because of his speed and moves in space. He does well out of the slot and is a dependable receiver for the offense. He has at least 770 yards three of four seasons with the Seahawks.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Baldwin isn't a very exciting fantasy option but consistent. He is a pretty good bet to get around 70 receptions for 800 yards and five touchdowns. He can help as a spot starter in the right matchup.

 #69  Jordan Matthews (WR) PhiladelphiaBye: 4 
 
Player News:
Matthews had a solid rookie season, serving as the No. 3 receiver for the Eagles. He might have been No. 3 on the depth chart but was the second most productive receiver on the team. Matthews had three 100-yard games and finished just shy of 900 yards. He also was a top red-zone target, catching eight touchdown passes. He should get more and more work going forward in this offense, possibly grabbing a starting role this coming year. Matthews is a big receiver with good hands. He does a good job of making the acrobatic catch. He lacks a little top speed but remains a good deep threat because of his size and athleticism.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Matthews is another young receiver on the rise. He can take his numbers to a new level this coming year. He is capable of a 1,000-yard, double-digit touchdown season. Consider him a solid No. 2 for fantasy teams.

 #70  Tavon Austin (WR) Los AngelesBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Austin hasn't progressed a lot since his rookie season. He makes the occasional big play but isn't a consistent option in the passing game. Austin actually lined up as a running back at times last season and almost finished with more rushing yards (224) than receiving (242). Austin failed to top 40-receiving yards in any game last year. The Rams continue to say they want to make him a bigger point of the offense, but it hasn't materialized to date. This season could be make or break for Austin. Austin is a playmaker. He has top speed and electric moves in space. He will struggle with drops at times, though, and sometimes tries to do too much with the ball in his hands. At this point, he is a bigger asset on special teams than as a receiver.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Austin is a big question mark for the coming year. A new offensive coordinator could be a good thing for him but nothing is certain. For now, expect a bit of a bump in production but not enough to make him anything more than a reserve for fantasy teams. He could get around 700 total yards and four or five touchdowns.

 #71  Russell Wilson (QB) SeattleBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Wilson had another big season for the Seahawks, leading the team to the Super Bowl once again. He threw for more than 3,000 yards and had a career-high 849-rushing yards. Wilson ran for more yards than some starting running backs. And Wilson has designed running plays but does a great job of picking and choosing when to run the ball. He also doesn't take many big hits despite all his runs. Wilson had 26 total touchdowns to just seven interceptions all season. He still lacks some top weapons to throw to in the passing game but makes the most of the talent around him. Wilson makes everyone better around him. Wilson isn't a big quarterback but moves around the pocket well and can make all the throws at quarterback. He kind of reminds you of Drew Brees. His arm isn't off the charts but accurate and he does well to find a throwing lane despite his small size. Wilson is a much better runner than Brees, though. He can hurt teams with his legs as much as his arm. Wilson has topped 500-rushing yards each of the past two seasons.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Wilson was sixth in quarterback scoring last season, mainly because of his huge rushing totals. It might be a stretch to see him run for that many yards again but don't be surprised if his passing yards go up. Teams are likely going to key on Wilson more, giving him a little more freedom to make plays in the passing game. Wilson is a legit No. 1 for fantasy teams. He is just outside that elite group but a consistent starter for fantasy teams. He'll get around 3,500-passing yards, 30 total touchdowns and 600-rushing yards. Wilson is the complete package at quarterback.

 #72  DeSean Jackson (WR) WashingtonBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Despite the Redskins' offense being a mess much of the year, Jackson still had a big first season with his new team. He made a ton of big plays, averaging 20.9 yards per reception. Jackson had six 100-yard games and finished with nearly 1,200-receiving yards. He'll continue to play a prominent role in this offense this coming season. Jackson has two straight 1,000-yard seasons and four for his career. Jackson has great speed and the ability to break a big play every time he touches the ball. He also has good hands and does well when getting a chance to carry the ball.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Jackson isn't in that elite category of fantasy receivers but is a serviceable No. 2. He will have the occasional bad game and his reception totals won't be off the charts but he'll get the yards and some scores. Expect around 65 receptions for 1,200 yards and eight or so touchdowns.

 #73  Andy Dalton (QB) CincinnatiBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Dalton missed the last three games of the season because of a broken thumb but was having a really good season before getting injured. He finished with 28 total touchdowns to just seven interceptions and had four 300-yard games. He looked to take a step forward last season after some inconsistent play in recent years. Dalton doesn't have a huge arm, but he is accurate and does well with hitting his receivers in stride. He is a good fit for the Bengals' offense. Dalton has a good grasp of what the Bengals are trying to do offensively and has a great rapport with receiver A.J. Green. Dalton still needs to show up in the big game to be considered an elite quarterback but the rest of his game looks pretty good.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Dalton is a top-10 fantasy quarterback. He might not have the monster game but will be very consistent for fantasy teams in a good offense. Look for Dalton to throw for around 4,000 yards with 35 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.

 #74  Travis Benjamin (WR) San DiegoBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Benjamin caught 18 passes last season, which tied a career high. He did set a career high in yards (314) and touchdowns (3), though. Benjamin made some big plays with the limited chances he got, averaging 17.4 yards per reception. Benjamin continues to be more of a factor on special teams, getting some work both as a punt and kick returner. He should play a similar role this season, getting a few chances as a receiver but most of his playing time will come on special teams. Benjamin lacks size but has good speed and does well as a deep threat. He runs good routes and does a good job of finding the soft spot in coverage. He is a good fit for the slot. Benjamin isn't a physical player, though, and will shy away from contact, hurting his chances to play more as a receiver.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Benjamin has little upside unless you are in a league that rewards return yardage. If not, we wouldn't bother with Benjamin on your fantasy teams. He might get around 20 catches for 350 yards and a touchdown if all goes well for him. That isn't going to help many fantasy teams.

 #75  Jordan Reed (TE) WashingtonBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Reed missed four games early in the year because of injury, which hurt his overall numbers, but he was erratic for the Redskins throughout the season. Reed had three of his 11 games with 70-plus yards but also had two games with fewer than 10 yards. And his biggest disappointment last season was finishing without a touchdown. He is the No. 1 tight end for the Redskins, though, and more stability at the quarterback spot could lead to better numbers for Reed this year. He certainly has the talent to be a top starter in this league. Reed is a top athlete with speed and plus hands. He also runs good routes and does a good job of finding the soft spot in coverage. Reed also is a pretty willing blocker and should continue to improve in this area.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Reed is an emerging fantasy tight end with plenty of potential. But he shouldn't be considered a surefire No. 1 just yet. He needs to be taken as a top backup and hope for the best. A lot of his season will depend on whether or not the Redskins get better offensively, especially at quarterback. If that happens, Reed could really surprise. But for now, expect around 70 receptions for 750 yards and six touchdowns.

 #76  Marvin Jones (WR) DetroitBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Jones had a season to forget last year. He broke his foot and injured his ankle in an attempt to return from his broken foot. Eventually, he needed surgery on his ankle, ending his season. Jones didn't play a snap last year. Jones will challenge for the No. 2 or 3 receiver spot with the Bengals this season as long as he is healthy. Jones took a step forward his second season in the league, setting career highs across the board. He finished with just more than 700 yards and a very impressive 10 touchdowns. Jones was a top red-zone target for the Bengals. He uses his size well and has good leaping ability for the position. Jones has good size at receiver and is a solid athlete. He has plus hands and runs good routes for a young player. Jones does lack a little speed, though, and lacks concentration at times.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Jones probably won't match his career highs after missing all of last season but could help fantasy teams on a spot start basis if he starts getting consistent playing time. He could get around 40 catches for 600 yards with five or six touchdowns.

 #77  Michael Floyd (WR) ArizonaBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Floyd didn't build on his big second season, struggling some last season. He had 841 yards and six touchdowns. But in fairness to Floyd, he had 100-yard games two of three to start the season. He was playing pretty well before Carson Palmer was injured. Life without Palmer didn't treat Floyd too well. A healthy solid starting quarterback should help Floyd's production this season. He is in just his fourth season in the league and had a 1,000-yard year his second NFL season. Floyd is a good compliment to fellow starter Larry Fitzgerald. Floyd has good size and speed at receiver. Floyd runs good routes and does a good job of getting downfield in a hurry. Floyd also has good hands and the knack for the big play.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Floyd seems primed for a bounce-back season. He can reach that 1,000-yard mark once again and score around eight touchdowns. He is worth grabbing as a low-end No. 2 or 3 fantasy receiver. He is capable of the huge game any given week.

 #78  Ameer Abdullah (RB) DetroitBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Abdullah didn't live up to his preseason hype. He started some games but wasn't great in an expanded role. He had double-digit carries six times but his season high in rushing was just 77 yards. He averaged just 4.2 yards per carry and had 780 total yards and three touchdowns. He'll need to show more consistency this season if he hopes to start for the Lions. He'll get a chance to start for the Lions, though. The team likes his potential in an expanded role. Abdullah has great speed and can get to the next level in a hurry. He isn't a big back but isn't afraid to lower his shoulder to try to pick up some extra yards. He will struggle in some short-yardage situations, though. He needs to try not to make the big play every time he has the ball in his hands and take what the defenses give him. Abdullah can catch the ball out of the backfield well and should get plenty of chances in the passing game. Fantasy Outlook: Abdullah is an intriguing talent but burnt a lot of fantasy owners last season that were expecting a breakout season. It could happen this year and his price tag should be much lower. He has plenty of potential, especially in PPR formats. Take him as a low-end No. 2 and hope for the best. He can get around 1,100 total yards and five or so touchdowns with around 40 receptions.
 #79  Kevin White (WR) ChicagoBye: 9 
 
Player News:
The Bears used the first pick in their draft to find the starter opposite Alshon Jeffery. White will get that role from day one for the Bears. He should be a good compliment to Jeffery. White has great speed and can stretch the field in a hurry. He is a top athlete with the knack for making the acrobatic catch. He has great size for the position. He does shy away from contact a little, which is one of the few knocks on White.

Fantasy Outlook:  
White is our top rookie receiver this season. He lands in a spot that should give him plenty of chances. He could finish with around 80 receptions for 1,100 yards and eight touchdowns. Consider him a solid No. 2 for fantasy teams.

 #80  Giovani Bernard (RB) CincinnatiBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Bernard had a solid season as the top pass-catching back on the team. He got plenty of work as a runner and receiver, finishing with 1,202 total yards. He caught 49 passes and ran the ball 154 times. He was a consistent factor for the Bengals and should serve a similar role again this season. Bernard splits the work at running back for the Bengals. He is a huge asset in the passing game, catching 92 passes the last two seasons. Bernard doesn't have great size at running back but has quick feet and does well in space. He does run pretty well between the tackles despite not being the biggest back, though. He also catches the ball very well out of the backfield. He might not have the ideal size to be an every-down back. Fantasy Outlook: Bernard isn't flashy but he produces. He was 18th overall in fantasy running back scoring last season and can finish with similar numbers this year. Consider Bernard a low-end No. 2 back for fantasy teams. If he can find the end zone a little more, his value would rise even more. That is his big knock - a lack of scores. For now, expect around 1,000 total yards and five touchdowns with around 45 receptions.
 #81  Charles Sims (RB) Tampa BayBye: 6 
 
Player News:
Sims had a great season as the top backup and third-down back for the Bucs. He did great in a reserve role, finishing with 1,090 total yards and four touchdowns. He was a huge asset in the passing game, finishing with 51 receptions. Sims fits his current role very well. He should continue to serve a similar role this season for the Bucs. Sims is a very good receiver out of the backfield. He isn't much of an inside runner but can make plays on the outside and can get downhill in a hurry. He doesn't have blazing speed but gets to his second level pretty quickly, which is an asset for any back. Fantasy Outlook: Sims doesn't have big touchdown potential but he is gong to get plenty of receptions and good total yardage numbers. Remember, he was 16th in fantasy running back scoring last season. He is a top-10 back, making him a low-end No. 2 or top flex play for fantasy teams. He can finish with around 1,000 total yards and 55 receptions with five or so touchdowns.
 #82  Melvin Gordon (RB) San DiegoBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Gordon didn't have quite the rookie season as expected. He averaged just 3.5 yards per carry and his season high in rushing yards was just 88 despite having double-digit carries 12 games. He finished with just 833 total yards and didn't score a touchdown. Gordon also fumbled four times, which was cause for concern for the Chargers. He should get a chance to start this season but isn't going to be handed the job. He has to prove his worth, putting in a good offseason of work. Gordon is a home-run threat at running back with great moves and top speed. He can get to a next gear in a hurry. He does try to do too much at times with the ball in his hands, though, and struggles with ball security. He catches the ball well as evident by his 33 receptions last season. Fantasy Outlook: Gordon was a bust last season but he is young enough to turn it around. You have to draft him as a low-end No. 2 or 3 back, though. He carries plenty of risk. For now, count on about 1,000 total yards and four or five scores.
 #83  Frank Gore (RB) IndianapolisBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Gore had a pretty good first season as the starter for the Colts. He provided some stability to the position, finishing with 1,234 total yards and seven touchdowns. He did fail to have a 100-yard game all season despite having double-digit carries all but two games. His work in the passing game helped pad his overall numbers, though. Gore did show some signs of slowing down, averaging a career-worst 3.7 yards per carry while failing to top 1,000-rushing yards for the first time in four seasons. At age 33, you have you have to wonder how much he has left in the tank, especially if you consider he has 2,702 career carries. Gore might be best suited as a back that split work going forward. In his prime, Gore was an explosive back. He has good speed and moves in the open field. He has big-play potential and does well in the passing game. Fantasy Outlook: Gore can't keep his current pace at his current age but he can still help as a flex play or No. 3 back for fantasy teams. Just don't count on another season like last year. He is going to get fewer touches. But he can still finish with around 900 or 1,000 total yards and five or six touchdowns.
 #84  Charcandrick West (RB) Kansas CityBye: 5 
 
Player News:
West was a big surprise for the Chiefs, emerging as the top backup to Jamaal Charles. He got plenty of starts because of injury and did very well in that role. He is the future starter at the position for the Chiefs. West finished with 848 total yards and five touchdowns. He had one 100-yard game and averaged four yards per carry. He could be in more of a timeshare at running back this season for the Chiefs, splitting work with Charles. West is a good fit for the Chiefs' offense. He is capable of the big play, catches the ball well, and can do well between the tackles. He is a three-down back that could be a top player in this league for years to come. Fantasy Outlook: West is a back on the rise. You can't count on him to be a top starter just yet because he won't get enough touches. But he is capable of being a solid flex play for fantasy teams. He can get around 700 or 800 total yards and five or so touchdowns with around 30 receptions.
 #85  Tyler Eifert (TE) CincinnatiBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Eifert played the first game of the season and caught three passes for 37 yards. He didn't get in another game because of a shoulder injury suffered during training camp. He eventually had surgery on the shoulder, needing to be placed on Injured Reserve. Eifert will be the starting tight end for the Bengals this season. The team still has high hopes for Eifert, who played well his rookie season. Eifert is a tall tight end that is very athletic. He can stretch the field with his speed and has good hands to make the tough catch. He lacks a little bulk, though, and isn't much of a blocker for the tight end spot just yet.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Eifert is a good under the radar player to target for the coming year. He should get his targets in this offense and can finish with around 55 receptions for 600 yards and five touchdowns. He'll be worth some spot starts for fantasy teams along the way.

 #86  Theo Riddick (RB) DetroitBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Riddick emerged as the top pass-catching for the Lions and had a breakout season in that role. He caught 80 passes, having multiple receptions in every single game. He carried the ball just 43 times for 133 yards but was a consistent factor in the passing game every week. Riddick could be setup for even more playing time this season with Joique Bell gone for the Lions. Riddick probably is too small to be an every-down back but he does great as a receiver out of the backfield. He has good moves in open space and top hands at the position. Fantasy Outlook: Riddick was a top-20 fantasy back last season and can finish with similar numbers. His yardage numbers and touchdowns total could even improve a little. Riddick should not be ignored come draft day. He can be a low-end No. 2 or top No. 3 fantasy back. He could get around 900 total yards, 75 receptions and five touchdowns.
 #87  Laquon Treadwell (WR) MinnesotaBye: 6 
 
 #88  Ronnie Hillman (RB) DenverBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Hillman pretty much split the running back duties for the Broncos last season. He did pretty well in that role, finishing with 974 total yards and seven touchdowns. He had four 100-yard games and showed his big-play potential much of the year. Hillman isn't guaranteed a starting job this year but will compete for that role. He has filled it pretty well when given the chance. Hillman is a small back that does well in space and has the speed to make big plays. Hillman excels in the screen game and does well as a receiver out of the backfield. He still needs to improve his inside running but is making strides in that area. Fantasy Outlook: Hillman might not be able to repeat last season but is still worth a look as a No. 3 or 4 for fantasy teams. He'll still get his touches and is always capable of the big game. But for now, expect around 700 total yards and a few scores.
 #89  Tyler Lockett (WR) SeattleBye: 5 
 
Player News:
The Seahawks used a third-round pick on Lockett, hoping to find a top slot receiver and return man for years to come. Lockett will compete for the No. 3 or 4 receiver spot his rookie season. He isn't the biggest receiver but runs great routes and makes plays with the ball in his hands. He can turn a short pass into a big play. He also is a great return man and should get his chances in those areas for the Seahawks.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Lockett would have better value in a different offense. He won't get a ton of targets out of the slot for the Seahawks. He'll get some chances, though, and could finish with around 40 receptions for 600 yards with a few scores. He is a deep reserve for fantasy teams.

 #90  Devin Funchess (WR) CarolinaBye: 7 
 
Player News:
Funchess gives the Panthers a different dimension at receiver. He is a huge receiver, looking more like a tight end than a receiver. He has good strength and size, using both to his advantage when catching passes. He runs good routes and is a tough cover for cornerbacks because of his size. He lacks some moves in space, though, and his hands aren't the best just yet. Funchess has a good chance to be a starter from day one his rookie season.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Funchess has some upside in an improving passing game. He'll get some weekly targets as a starter for the Panthers. Don't expect off the charts numbers, though. He is more of a No. 4 for fantasy teams. Funchess can get around 50 receptions for 800 yards and five or six touchdowns.

 #91  John Brown (WR) ArizonaBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Brown was a weekly contributor for the Cardinals his rookie season, serving as the No. 3 receiver most of the season. He had at least two receptions all but a game and more than 50 yards seven of 16 games. He made some big plays offensively for the Cardinals, scoring five touchdowns on 48 receptions. He should continue to be the No. 3 receiver for the Cardinals this season and even get some looks in two-receiver sets. Brown is a small receiver but has great speed and moves in space. He is a top playmaker at the receiver position. Brown also is an asset on special teams as a return man.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Brown is an emerging talent that should do better this year if Carson Palmer can stay healthy at quarterback. He still will post some inconsistent numbers in his current role but can get around 60 receptions for 800 yards and five or so scores.

 #92  Derek Carr (QB) OaklandBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Carr took a big step forward last season, finishing 14th overall in fantasy quarterback scoring. He had 32 touchdowns to just 13 interceptions and finished with just fewer than 4,000-passing yards. He had touchdowns all but two games and six 300-yard games. He was very consistent as the starter in this emerging offense. Carr is a good athlete with an elite arm. He can be inaccurate at times but is improving in that area. Carr can make all the throws needed for the pro game. He can make the touch pass as well as threading the needle between defenders. He also reads defenses well for a young player.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Carr is a fantasy player on the rise. He is capable of being a top-10 fantasy quarterback. He can improve on last season, getting 4,000-plus yards and 35 touchdowns to 12 or so interceptions

 #93  Matthew Stafford (QB) DetroitBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Stafford had one of his best seasons in recent years. A change at offensive coordinator during the season seemed to jumpstart things for Stafford. He had just one interception his last seven games of the season while scoring 18 touchdowns. Stafford was 10th overall in fantasy scoring. He should continue to do well, being in the prime of his career in a good offense. Stafford has five straight 4,000-yard seasons and three of those seasons with 30-plus scores. Stafford has a huge arm, moves around the pocket well and is a big, strong kid. He will force some passes, but improved on that last season. His consistency as an elite NFL quarterback hasn't been there yet but is getting closer. The Lions are pass-first team and will continue to put the offense in Stafford's hands. He is their franchise quarterback and starter for the next several seasons.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Stafford is a solid No. 1, capable of posting huge weekly numbers. His finish to last season should be an eye opener to fantasy teams. Don't overlook Stafford some draft day. He can throw for around 4,500 yards and 30-plus touchdowns.

 #94  Torrey Smith (WR) San FranciscoBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Smith had the lowest yardage totals of his career last season but had a career-high 11 touchdowns. He made big plays and was a top target in the red zone. Smith didn't have a 100-yard game all season, though, and his season high in yards was 98. Smith didn't reach 100 targets on the season, breaking a streak of two straight seasons with 100-plus targets. Smith is one of the top deep threats in the game. Smith has elite speed and can stretch the field in a hurry. He still needs some work on his route running to become a complete player but is getting better in this area. Smith has pretty good hands and a knack for the spectacular play.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Smith has potential for the big game any given week, so don't get too down on him after his low yardage totals last season. He still has potential, especially if you look at his past history. Consider him a low-end No. 2 or solid No. 3 for fantasy teams. He can get around 65 receptions for 1,000 yard and seven or eight touchdowns.

 #95  Carson Palmer (QB) ArizonaBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Palmer had maybe the best season of his career last year, finishing fifth overall in fantasy quarterback scoring. He had 36 total touchdowns to just 11 interceptions and had more than 4,600-passing yards. He had touchdowns in every game and nine 300-yard games. He had an MVP-type regular season. He did bomb in the playoffs, though, getting picked off six times in two games. He had a finger injury on his throwing hand late in the year, which some suspect contributed to his poor play during the playoffs. He still had a great year and will continue to start for the Cardinals pass-first offense. Palmer has 4,000-yard seasons, three of the past four years. Palmer is an accurate passer with decent arm strength. He can make all throws and has always thrown the deep ball pretty well but his arm strength has slipped some in recent seasons. He will force some throws, though, and make poor decisions. He has three seasons with 20 interceptions.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Palmer won't come nearly as cheap last season when he was returning from an ACL injury. He is a legit top-10 fantasy quarterback. He might have a hard time repeating last year, but can have another 4,000-yard season with around 30 total touchdowns and 14 or so interceptions.

 #96  Greg Olsen (TE) CarolinaBye: 7 
 
Player News:
Olsen had his best season to date last year, hitting the 1,000-yard mark for the first time in his career. He was the top target in the Panthers' offense and took advantage, finishing with 10 games of 60-plus yards. He also had three 100-yard games and two 10-reception games. Olsen has three straight seasons with 800-plus yards for the Panthers. He will continue to start for the Panthers. Olsen is a good athlete at the tight end spot. He has top speed and very good hands, making him a surprising big-play option at tight end. He is just a so-so blocker, though, but has improved in that area as his career progresses.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Olsen was fifth in tight end scoring last year and a repeat wouldn't be a surprise. We aren't sure he hits the 1,000-yard mark but his touchdown totals could improve, which would even the other numbers out. Consider Olsen a top-five option for the coming year. He can get around 80 receptions for 950 yards and seven touchdowns.

 #97  Jameis Winston (QB) Tampa BayBye: 6 
 
Player News:
Winston had an impressive rookie season, finishing 13th overall in fantasy quarterback scoring. He surprised many with his quick progress at the position. Winston topped 4,000-passing yards and scored 28 total touchdowns compared to 15 interceptions. Winston had a great finish to his season, topping 290 yards three straight while scoring five touchdowns. He should only improve with more seasoning, which is great news for the Bucs. Winston has picked up things very quickly as the starter for the Bucs. Winston has a great arm and can make all the throws. He is a pretty accurate quarterback for a young player but still needs improvement in that area. He is very cerebral, though, and fits the part of an elite NFL quarterback. He is a good athlete but more of a pocket passer than scrambler. He will make plays with his legs when needed, though.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Winston was nearly a No. 1 fantasy quarterback his rookie season, so his prospects going forward are very good, especially if you consider the top options he works with at receiver. You have to like his chances to improve on last year and be a low-end No. 1 for fantasy teams. He can throw for 4,000 yards and score around 30 total touchdowns with 12 or so interceptions. He is a fantasy player on the rise.

 #98  Matt Ryan (QB) AtlantaBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Ryan threw often once again but struggled to pick up the new Falcons offense last year, turning the ball over a little more while stalling in the red zone at times. This lead to lower production for him. He did threw for more than 4,500 yards but had 21 touchdowns compared to 16 interceptions. His touchdown total was his lowest since his rookie season. It broke a streak of five straight seasons with at least 26-passing touchdowns. Ryan should be more comfortable his second year in the offense, though. He also has one of the best receivers of the game on his side, which is another plus for him. Ryan has at least 614 pass attempts four straight season, playing in this pass-first offense. He is an accurate, intelligent quarterback with a strong arm and the ability to fit the ball in tight spaces. And at age 31, Ryan is in the prime of his career. If there is a knock on him, he can flop in the big game and doesn't do well under intense pressure.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Ryan is a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback. Expect him to rebound some from last season and increase his touchdown totals. He can be a top-10 fantasy quarterback in this offense. He'll get around 4,500 yards and 28 touchdowns.

 #99  Markus Wheaton (WR) PittsburghBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Wheaton found his way into the starting lineup much of the year for the Steelers but didn't exactly excel in that role. His season high in yards (97) came in Week 1, and he failed to top 70 yards in a game after that. Wheaton finished with less than 700 yards and scored just two touchdowns. He has a tenuous hold on the starter's job and could fall down the depth chart this season. Wheaton is a speed burner, stretching the field and turning short passes into big plays. Wheaton is a big-play threat with the ball in his hands. He isn't a tall receiver and lacks some toughness but catches the ball pretty well and has great speed.

Fantasy Outlook:  
A lot of receivers make a big jump in their third season in the league, so don't give up on Wheaton just yet. But he seems a bit of a stretch to make that jump after last season. He has young talent pushing him for playing time, which doesn't bode well for him. Expect more of the same from last season, getting around 50 catches for 600 yards and a few scores.

 #100  Kirk Cousins (QB) WashingtonBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Cousins had a breakout season as the starter for the Redskins, earning the job for seasons to come. He finished ninth in fantasy quarterback scoring. He had 34 total touchdowns to just 11 interceptions and threw for more than 4,000 yards. Cousins had touchdowns every game last season and finished the season with 12 touchdowns without an interception his last three games. Cousins was a great fit for the Redskins offense and seems ready to run with the starting job going forward. Cousins isn't a flashy quarterback but a productive pocket passer. He doesn't have a huge arm but is normally accurate and usually makes smart decisions with the football. Cousins also has a knack for the rushing touchdown, scoring five last season.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Cousins might be hard pressed to repeat last season, but he can come close. He just gained confidence as the season progressed and certainly look like the real deal for fantasy teams. Consider him a low-end No. 1 this season. He can get around 4,000-passing yards with 30 total touchdowns and 12 or so interceptions.

 #101  Coby Fleener (TE) New OrleansBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Fleener had his best season to date last year, setting a career high in yards and touchdowns. He made a lot more big plays in the passing game, averaging 15.2 yards per reception. He had one fewer reception last year than the previous year but finished with 166 more yards, making a lot more big plays. Fleener had two 100-yard games on the season. He has 50-plus receptions two straight seasons and more than 600 yard each of those seasons. He is the No. 1 tight end for the Colts and gets his weekly chances from Andrew Luck, who played with him in college. Fleener is a big kid that runs good routes and has the athletic ability to make plenty of plays in the passing game. He lacks a little strength, though, and isn't a great blocker for a tight end.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Fleener made big strides last season, showing he can be a legit No. 1 for fantasy teams. He has more to compete with for targets in this offense but plenty of big-game ability. He might be a little erratic for fantasy teams but is a solid No. 1. He can finish with around 60 receptions for 800 yards and seven touchdowns.

 #102  Stefon Diggs (WR) MinnesotaBye: 6 
 
Player News:
The Vikings used a fifth-round draft pick on Diggs. He will compete for a reserve spot with the team his rookie season. Diggs is a pretty physical receiver that does well in making plays downfield. He isn't afraid to go over the middle and make the tough catch. He also has good moves in space and can be a solid return man. He lacks some polish and maturity, though, which will need to improve if he hopes to be a dependable pro receiver.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Diggs is a long shot to make a big impact as a rookie. He could get around 20 receptions for 300 yards with a couple scores. He could be a better pick in a few seasons.

 #103  Vincent Jackson (WR) Tampa BayBye: 6 
 
Player News:
The Bucs' offense was a mess last year, especially at quarterback, but Jackson had another 1,000-yard season. He finished with just more than 1,000 yards and 70 receptions. He did finish with just two touchdowns, though, which was unusual for Jackson. He didn't make quite as many big plays last year, having just three 100-yard games. Jackson has four straight 1,000-yard seasons. Jackson is 32 years old but hasn't lost much, especially if you consider his best numbers as a pro have come the last few seasons. Jackson has 1,000-yard seasons six of the last seven years but has never had double-digit touchdowns. Jackson is a big receiver with good leaping ability and plus speed. He isn't an elite route runner but has improved in this area through the years.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Mike Evans is the top receiver on the Bucs to own but Jackson isn't too far behind. His numbers should improve this season with a better quarterback behind center. Jackson can have another 1,000-yard season and look for his touchdowns to increase to seven or so. He has value as a No. 2 fantasy receiver.

 #104  Philip Rivers (QB) San DiegoBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Rivers set a career high in yards last season and finished 11th overall in fantasy quarterback scoring despite missing some of his top targets in the passing game much of the year. He made the most of his teammates and took advantage of his chances to pass the ball. Rivers had topped 600-pass attempts for the first time in his career. He had a whopping 661-pass attempts. Rivers had nine 300-yard games and 10 multiple touchdown games. Rivers' arm strength seems to be down some and he struggles with the deep ball a little more than earlier in his career but can still get the job done as the starter for the Chargers. Rivers is accurate and has a quick release. He knows the offense well and does well in the pass-first system. Rivers has seven 4,000-yard seasons and four with 30-plus total touchdowns.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Rivers isn't in that elite category of starters but just outside that group. He is a consistent producer in a pass-first offense. He is a good low-end No. 1 for fantasy teams. You can't ignore his consistency the last several seasons. Expect a season with around 4,500-passing yards and 30 touchdowns with 15 interceptions.

 #105  Steve Smith (WR) BaltimoreBye: 8 
 
Player News:
A move to Baltimore was a good one for Smith, who enjoyed his best season in a few years. Smith got back to the 1,000-yard mark and caught 79 passes. He had four 100-yard games after failing to reach that mark in any game the previous season. Smith has eight 1,000-yard seasons for his career. He is 36 years old, though, so you have to wonder how much he has left in the tank, even after last season. Smith might be more of a complimentary receiver this season. Smith is a small target, but has great hands and surprising strength. He just makes plays with the ball in his hands. He has lost a step but remains very fast and a solid deep threat at receiver.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Smith isn't going to be able to repeat last season. Don't overvalue him come draft day. He'll get around 60 receptions for 700 yards and a few scores. There are more exciting, younger options at the position.

 #106  Travis Kelce (TE) Kansas CityBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Kelce quickly emerged his second season as a top threat in the Chiefs' offense. He probably was the most dependable target in the passing game. He had a breakout year, finishing sixth overall in fantasy scoring at tight end. Kelce had at least two receptions every game last season and finished with more than 800-receiving yards. He also was very efficient with his chances, catching 67 of 87 targets. He has room to grow with more chances in the passing game, which seems likely this year. Kelce is a big target with speed, athleticism and plus hands. He also is a good blocker. He really is a complete package at tight end. Kelce can work on his route running some but should improve in that area over time.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Kelce is a legit No. 1 fantasy tight end. He could a top-five player at the position this year. The only downside to Kelce is playing in a run-first offense. Besides that, his upside is huge for the coming year. Expect his numbers to improve, catching around 80 passes for 1,000 yards and seven touchdowns.

 #107  Joe Flacco (QB) BaltimoreBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Flacco had his season end early because of a torn ACL. He was playing alright before the injury, carrying the offense many weeks because of a lack of a running game. Flacco had 17 total touchdowns to 12 interceptions in 10 games. He had five 300-yard games, getting a chance to throw often. Much of the same could happen this year with the Ravens as long as Marc Trestman is calling plays. Flacco has a strong arm and the ability to move around the pocket well. He lacks some accuracy at times and will make some poor decisions when rushed. Flacco is a top performer in the playoffs but can't always sustain that success in the regular season.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Flacco isn't an elite starter but worth using as a spot starter. He'll have some big games in this pass-first offense. Don't look over him come draft day. He can top 4,000 yards and score around 30 touchdowns, making him a top No. 2 for fantasy teams.

 #108  Donte Moncrief (WR) IndianapolisBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Moncrief enjoyed some big games his rookie season but was all over the map as the No. 3 or 4 receiver for the team most of the season. He had two 100-yard games but had fewer than 50 yards all but one other game last season. He was boom or bust, getting limited targets on a weekly basis. He showed his promise, though, and has a chance to play a much bigger role from day one this year. He could even challenge to start but likely is the No. 3 for the Colts. Moncrief is a big receiver with a lot of speed. He remains a little raw but is improving his route running and is a top deep threat for the team.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Moncrief is setup for more work this season but probably isn't a surefire fantasy thing just yet. He'll still be hit or miss in his current role. But he can be worth some spot plays along the way because of his big-game potential. Moncrief can get around 60 receptions for 800 yards and six touchdowns.

 #109  Michael Crabtree (WR) OaklandBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Crabtree had a disastrous season last year, failing to hit the 100-yard mark in any game while finishing with fewer than 700-receiving yards. The 49ers passing game struggled much of the season, though, which didn't help Crabtree. He had less than 50 yards four of five games to end the season, a fitting end to his poor season. Crabtree has flashed some great things at times throughout his career but hasn't had that huge season. He has just one 1,000-yard season in his career and never scored double-digit touchdowns. Crabtree probably is more of a top No. 2 receiver than No. 1 for NFL teams, a role he should serve with the Raiders this season. Crabtree is a pretty polished receiver at this stage of his career. Crabtree has plus hands, runs solid routes and is a playmaker. He doesn't have elite speed, but enough to get the job done.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Crabtree was a huge bust last year and should fall in drafts this year. He might be a decent player to take a chance on as a No. 3 or 4 receiver because he has some talent and will be a featured receiver for the Raiders. He could get around 75 receptions for 900 yards and six or seven touchdowns. And if the light finally goes on for Crabtree, the sky really is the limit for this talented player.

 #110  Brock Osweiler (QB) HoustonBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Osweiler found his way into the startling lineup last year, replacing an injured and ineffective Peyton Manning. Osweiler played well in that role for the most part, having 11 total touchdowns to six interceptions in eight games. He also had five games with 270 or more passing yards. Osweiler finally gets his chance to start from day one this year, signing with the Texans. He'll be their starter for years to come. Osweiler is a huge quarterback with a big-time arm. He can make all the throws for an NFL quarterback. He does lack a little accuracy, though, and could improve his decision making, which should come with more playing time this season.

Fantasy Outlook:  
It is tough to count on him as a No. 1 fantasy quarterback, but Osweiler can reach those heights at some point. If he plays a full season last year, he finishes with about 4,000-passing yards and 22 touchdowns. So you would think he can improve on those numbers getting a chance to be the starter during the offseason, training camp and preseason action. Consider him a low-end No. 1 or top backup for fantasy teams. He can get 4,000-plus yards, around 30 total touchdowns and 15 interceptions. Remember, Brian Hoyer produced in this offense last year and Osweiler is a much more talented player than Hoyer.

 #111  Jimmy Graham (TE) SeattleBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Graham had a down season for his standards but still finished second overall in fantasy scoring for tight ends. He didn't have a 100-yard game all year but had 85 receptions and 10 touchdowns. The good news is Graham made it through the season pretty healthy, which is a concern for Graham at this stage of his career. The bad news is his yardage total was his lowest since his rookie season. His down year led to the Saints shipping him out of town this offseason, getting rid of his high salary. Graham is just 28 years old and would seem to have plenty left in the tank despite being nicked up some in recent years. He goes to a less explosive Seahawks' offense but should be the No. 1 target in the passing game, getting plenty of targets on a weekly basis. Graham is the complete package at tight end. He is a big target with top speed and the ability to make the tough catch. He is an improving blocker but isn't used much in that role. Graham is a top athlete that plays more like a No. 1 receiver than tight end.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Graham's move to Seattle could hurt his overall numbers a little but don't expect a big downturn in production. He remains an elite No. 1 fantasy tight end. He is No. 2 in our tight end rankings. Expect around 90 receptions for 1,000 yards and 10 touchdowns.

 #112  Gary Barnidge (TE) ClevelandBye: 13 
 
Player News:
Barnidge had 13 receptions for the second straight season with the Browns. He had multiple receptions four games but went without a catch several times. Barnidge is 29 years old and has 44 career receptions with three touchdowns. He hasn't done much since entering the league and seems destined for backup duty again this season. Barnidge has good size for the position and is a pretty solid pass-catcher. His blocking is just so so, though, and he lacks some big-play potential.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Barnidge doesn't have much upside for fantasy teams. He might get some more chances, but his past history doesn't suggest a sudden breakthrough season. He is a long shot to help fantasy teams.

 #113  Golden Tate (WR) DetroitBye: 10 
 
Player News:
A move to Detroit was a good one for Tate, who enjoyed a career season last year. Tate posted outstanding numbers, finishing a catch shy of 100 while racking up 1,331-receiving yards. The only blemish on his season was a lack of scores, finishing with just four. But even with the low scores, Tate was still 12th in fantasy scoring at receiver. He had five 100-yard games, doing a great job opposite Calvin Johnson. Tate isn't exceptional in any one area, but does well across the board and is a playmaker. He makes things happen with the ball in his hands. Tate has good moves in space and a knack for moving the chains, making him a good fit for the middle of the field.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Tate might have a hard time matching last season but can still be a top No. 2 for fantasy teams. Just remember that his numbers could take a bit of a hit if Calvin Johnson comes back with a vengeance this season. Even with that said, we still like Tate for another 1,000-yard season. He can get around 90 receptions for 1,100 yards and six or seven touchdowns.

 #114  Willie Snead (WR) New OrleansBye: 5 
 
 #115  Eric Ebron (TE) DetroitBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Ebron didn't have quite the season as expected his rookie year. He got some chances but not a ton. He had just 25 receptions for 248 yards. He didn't have more than 40 yards in a single game. The Lions remain high on Ebron, though, and expect him to take a big step forward this season. He'll get every opportunity to start and play a big role offensively. Ebron is a great athlete with top speed and hands. Ebron isn't much of a blocker, though, which keeps him off the field more than your usual starting tight end.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Ebron has plenty of upside in this high-flying passing attack. He'll get more targets this year but don't expect monster numbers by any means. He is a bit of a risk for fantasy teams with solid options to compete with for targets. He is worth a look as a No. 2 fantasy tight end, though. He could get 45 or so receptions for 550 yards and four of five touchdowns.

 #116  Terrance Williams (WR) DallasBye: 7 
 
Player News:
Williams did a good job of finding the end zone last season but didn't get a ton of catches or yards. He finished with fewer than 650 yards and failed to hit the 100-yard mark in any game. Williams found the end zone eight times, though, and averaged 16.8 yards per reception. He made some big plays when given the chance. Williams should continue to be the No. 2 receiver for the Cowboys this season. Williams is a big, strong receiver that does a great job of stretching the field. He is a top deep threat. Williams isn't great on shorter routes just yet but improving in that area. He also needs to improve his hands but is also making strides with that.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Williams has some big-game potential and should produce more consistent numbers this year but don't expect a huge jump in numbers. He can be a solid No. 3 receiver for fantasy teams, getting around 60 or so receptions for around 1,000 yards and eight touchdowns.

 #117  Derrick Henry (RB) TennesseeBye: 13 
 
 #118  Victor Cruz (WR) New York GiantsBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Cruz suffered a serious injury last year, tearing his patellar tendon in his right knee. He played six games before the injury. Cruz had two 100-yard games before going down. Cruz has a long road back. Most consider this injury tougher to return from than a torn ACL. Cruz might not be 100 percent or his usual self for another year or two, or maybe even ever. The good news is Cruz is 28 years old and didn't have a history of injury before this one. When healthy, Cruz is a big-play threat with the ball in his hands. Cruz isn't a huge target but runs routes well and has plus hands. He can take a short pass and make it a big play in a hurry.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Cruz is a risk after last year. You just don't know how he'll return from this one. Plus, he is going to be the No. 2 target in this offense with the emergence of Odell Beckham. Expect his numbers to dip either way. He is still worth a look as a No. 3 or 4 receiver, though. He has potential, especially if you consider his track record. Look for a season with around 70 receptions for 900 yards and five or six touchdowns.

 #119  Phillip Dorsett (WR) IndianapolisBye: 10 
 
Player News:
The Colts surprised many by using their first-round pick on Dorsett. He joins a crowded receiving corps but is the future at the position for the team. He probably will be the No. 3 or 4 this season but should be the starter in a year or two. Dorsett is a top deep threat because of his elite speed. He is going to get his chances to stretch the field for the Colts. Dorsett will need to sharpen his route running to be an every-down player in the NFL. He also battled some injury issues in college, which is a concern going forward.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Dorsett didn't land in an ideal spot for his rookie season. He'll get some playing time but will be in more of a sporadic role. He is a better pick in dynasty formats than standard leagues this year. He will have a few games but expect around 40 receptions for 600 yards and five scores.

 #120  Rishard Matthews (WR) TennesseeBye: 13 
 
Player News:
Matthews didn't get nearly the work as the previous year, catching just 12 passes in 14 games. The coaching staff seemed to lose a little faith in him after playing him pretty extensively the previous year. This isn't a great sign for his future. He'll battle for a reserve role this coming year, likely serving as a No. 4 or 5 receiver. Matthews has good strength for the position and can get downfield in a hurry. He runs good routes but isn't a very explosive player.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Matthews could rebound some from last year but don't expect a big change by any means. He might get around 20 catches for 250 yards. He isn't worth much to fantasy teams.

 #121  Shane Vereen (RB) New York GiantsBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Vereen had a career-high 59 receptions in his first season with the Giants. He has at least 47 receptions three straight seasons. He ran for just 260 yards last year and his career high in rushing yards is 391. Vereen remains more of a third-down back than anything. He serves that role very well, though. Vereen isn't a huge back, which hurts his chances to be an every-down back, but he has the speed and hands to excel as a third-down back as evident by the last three seasons. Fantasy Outlook: Vereen was 27th overall in fantasy running back s boring despite failing to rush for 300 yards. He gets it done in the passing game and should once again this season. He is a top flex play for fantasy teams in this pass-first offense. He can get around 50 receptions for 700 total yards and five touchdowns.
 #122  Mohamed Sanu (WR) AtlantaBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Sanu found his way into the starting lineup from day one but didn't produce consistent numbers in that role. He had some big games early in the year but really stumbled down the stretch, which doesn't bode well for his future. He had two 100-yard games in his first seven but had less than 20 yards each of the last five games. Unless he has a strong offseason and camp, Sanu seems likely to be the No. 3 or 4 for the Bengals. Sanu is more of a possession-type receiver, lacking some big-play ability. He runs good routes, has plus hands and isn't afraid to make the tough catch in traffic. He isn't a big-play threat, though, lacking some speed for the position.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Sanu isn't a very exciting fantasy option. And he might have a hard time getting the targets of last season, hurting his value. He is more of a No. 5 fantasy receiver at this point. He could get 35 receptions for around 500 yards and a few scores.

 #123  LeGarrette Blount (RB) New EnglandBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Blount opened his season with the Steelers and ended it with the Super Bowl champs. His release about halfway through the season was a good thing for Blount. He had a 100-yard game for Pittsburgh in Week 3 but had fewer than 30-rushing yards every other game with the team. A move to New England was a positive for Blount, who got the majority of the carries many weeks. Blount had 58 or more rushing yards four games with the Patriots and his season best showing came in the playoffs, running for 148 yards and three touchdowns against the Colts. Blount was a bit of a problem in the locker room for the Steelers, which led to his release. He has done alright in a starting role in past seasons but seems best suited as a back to share work or to serve as a top backup. Blount is a big back but has surprising speed and moves for a big man. His game is power, though. Blount will run over, through and around would-be tacklers. He isn't much of a factor in the passing game, having just 33 receptions in five seasons. And he struggles to make plays to the outside, which hurts his chances to be a three-down back in this league.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Blount has the potential for some big games and some scores but is a hard guy to trust. His production will be erratic in his current role. He might get around 700 total yards and six scores if all goes well for him, making him a No. 3 or 4 back for fantasy teams.

 #124  Austin Seferian-Jenkins (TE) Tampa BayBye: 6 
 
Player News:
Seferian-Jenkins wasn't a huge factor his rookie season, topping 50 yards just once. He also missed the last five games of the year with a back injury. He did show some flashes, though, scoring two touchdowns on limited chances while averaging more than 10 yards per reception. He should be a bigger factor in this offense from day one this year, serving as the No. 1 tight end for the Bucs. Seferian-Jenkins is a huge tight end that can be a top red-zone target for the Bucs. He lacks a little speed but has good hands and runs pretty good routes for a young player. He isn't much of a blocker, though, and will need to get better in that area to be on the field as much as possible.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Seferian-Jenkins has some touchdown potential but his yards won't be anything too special in this offense. He can get around 600 yards and five scores, making him a reserve for fantasy teams.

 #125  Duke Johnson (RB) ClevelandBye: 13 
 
Player News:
Johnson emerged as the top pass-catching back for the Browns, getting him plenty of chances in the passing game. He had double-digit carries just two times but caught 61 passes. His huge reception totals helped him finished 24th overall in fantasy running back scoring his rookie season. He had 913 total yards and two touchdowns on the season. Johnson is going to at least fill the pass-catching role again this season and could even challenge to start. He needs to show better patience as a runner, though. Johnson is more of a speed back. He has top speed for the position and can get downfield in a hurry. He lacks a little size for the position, though, and won't make many plays after contact. Fantasy Outlook: Johnson has value because of all his reception potential. He is going to finish with good total yardage and reception numbers, making him a low-end No. 2 in PPR formats. Expect around 1,000 total yards and 55 receptions with a few scores.
 #126  Julius Thomas (TE) JacksonvilleBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Thomas didn't have near the yards and reception as the previous year but remained a huge red-zone target for the Broncos. He had fewer than 500-receiving yards and 43 receptions but scored 12 touchdowns. Thomas was still 10th in fantasy scoring for tight ends despite having less than 500 yards. Thomas has 12 touchdowns two straight seasons. He signed a big deal in the offseason to become the starting tight end for the Jaguars. He moves to an offense that isn't nearly as explosive but at least has less to compete with for targets. Thomas is a good athlete that can get down the field in a hurry. Thomas has strong hands but will drop some passes. He still isn't much of a blocker but is a much better route runner. He is a big-play threat at tight end.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Thomas sees a big dip in value with his move to Jacksonville. He might get more catches and yards this season but expect his touchdown numbers to go down. Thomas might get around 60 catches for 700 yards and six or seven touchdowns. He is a low-end No. 1 or No. 2 fantasy tight end.

 #127  Delanie Walker (TE) TennesseeBye: 13 
 
Player News:
Walker had just three more receptions than the previous season but his yardage totals went way up, finishing with more than 300 yards of his career season in 2013. Walker was eighth overall in fantasy scoring for tight ends. Walker had two 100-yard games and at least three receptions all but two games. He was a consistent factor all season for the Titans passing game. Walker has two straight seasons with 60 or more receptions as the Titans No. 1 tight end. He'll continue to serve that role this season with the Titans. Walker is a well built tight end with decent speed. Once he gets the ball, he is tough to bring down at around 240 pounds. Walker will struggle at times with dropped passes but improved on that area a lot in recent seasons.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Walker is going to have a hard time making so many big plays this season, so expect his numbers to dip some. But he still is a solid starter for fantasy teams. He'll get his weekly work and finish with around 60 receptions for 700 yards and five or so touchdowns.

 #128  Ladarius Green (TE) PittsburghBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Green was supposed to have a breakout season last year but played behind Antonio Gates once again and barely saw the field much of the year. He was a huge bust for fantasy teams, having just 19 receptions for the season. He is likely to play a similar role this year. The Chargers don't seem to have a ton of trust in Green and will continue to use him in a backup role. Green still projects to be the starter for the team down the road, though. Green is a big-time athlete. He has size, speed and leaping ability. Green remains raw but is getting more seasoned, which helps his progression.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Green certainly has talent and produce big plays but until he starts playing consistently, he isn't worth the risk come draft day. We do see him getting a little more work this year but not much. Green could get around 30 receptions for 450 yards and two touchdowns.

 #129  Isaiah Crowell (RB) ClevelandBye: 13 
 
Player News:
Crowell was the starter much of the year for the Browns and had double-digit carries all but three games. He did alright in a starting role, finishing with 888 total yards and five touchdowns. Crowell will have a chance to start again this year but will need to earn the job this offseason and training camp. He won't be handed anything. Crowell has good size for the position but also possesses solid moves and enough speed to make plays to the outside. He isn't a great pass catcher just yet, though, and will need to improve in that area if he ever hopes to be a three-down back. Fantasy Outlook: Crowell isn't a very exciting fantasy option. The Browns could rotate backs often again this year, making Crowell a bit of a wild card for fantasy teams. Count on him to be a No. 3 or 4 back for fantasy teams. Crowell should get around 700 or 800 total yards and four or five touchdowns.
 #130  James Starks (RB) Green BayBye: 4 
 
Player News:
Starks got less work as the top backup to Eddie Lacy this past season. He topped 50-rushing yards just once and had double-digit carries just twice. Starks wasn't too bad with his chances, though, having 473 total yards. Starks serves his role well as a top backup. He has starting experience and past success in that role. Starks hits the hole in a hurry and does pretty well between the tackles. He can run with some power because of his size. He isn't a finesse runner. Starks is doing a much better job of making the right read when running the ball and catches the ball pretty well out of the backfield.

Fantasy Outlook:  
As long as Eddie Lacy is healthy, Starks doesn't have much value. He won't get many touches in his current role, limiting his fantasy value. He could get around 400 total yards and a score or two.

 #131  Kendall Wright (WR) TennesseeBye: 13 
 
Player News:
Wright didn't follow his breakout season as expected. He missed a couple games with injury and finished with about 300 fewer yards. He did set a career high in touchdowns with six, though. Wright wasn't helped by erratic quarterback play, which hurt his numbers some. Wright had just one 100-yard games and topped 50 yards seven of 14 games. Wright is the best receiver in this offense and is a former 1,000-yard guy, so expect him to get plenty of targets this year. If the offense and quarterback play improves, expect Wright to have much better production. Wright isn't a big receiver but a big-play threat. He does a great job of turning a short throw into a long play. But he just isn't a big-play threat, becoming a very good route runner the past few seasons. Wright can be a dynamic player. He lacks some size, though. He can have a little trouble when corners try to get physical with him.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Wright is a good buy-low receiver. He has some potential if the offense takes some steps forward this season. He can return to his 1,000-yard ways if all goes well with him. Consider him as a No. 3 for fantasy teams. Wright could get around 80 receptions for 1,000 yards and seven touchdowns.

 #132  Kenyan Drake (RB) MiamiBye: 8 
 
 #133  Zach Miller (TE) ChicagoBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Miller lasted just four games because of a shoulder injury. He caught four passes for 42 yards and a touchdown before the injury. He hasn't played a full season since entering the league. His career high in receptions is 21, which came his rookie season. Miller has some upside as a pass catcher but hasn't lived up to his potential. Miller is fast for the tight end position and a good athlete. He still isn't much of a blocker, which will need to improve if he hopes to ever be a starter in the NFL. He should continue to play a backup role this season.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Miller isn't much of a fantasy threat. He has done little since entering the league and a breakout doesn't seem likely this season. If all goes well for him, he might get 30 catches for 300 or so yards and a few scores.

 #134  Kenny Stills (WR) MiamiBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Stills took a good jump his second season in the league, finishing 69 yards shy of a 1,000-yard season. He had two 100-yard games and nine games with 50-plus yards. He was the second best option in the passing game many weeks for the Saints. He head to a little less prolific passing game in Miami but should start for his new team, getting plenty of targets. Stills is a good athlete with quickness and the knack for making the tough catch. And while he lacks some size, Stills is a good deep threat because of his speed and quickness. He will drop some easy passes, though, and lacks a little consistency at this stage of his career.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Stills is a player on the rise. Expect him to take another jump forward this season in production. He can reach that 1,000-yard mark and improve his touchdown total, getting seven or so scores. Consider him a top No. 3 for fantasy teams.

 #135  Kenneth Dixon (RB) BaltimoreBye: 8 
 
 #136  Darren Sproles (RB) PhiladelphiaBye: 4 
 
Player News:
Sproles had another productive season as the third-down back for the Eagles. He had 55 receptions and finished with 705 total yards and four touchdowns. He had double-digit carries just twice all season but at least three receptions 11 of 16 games. Sproles has a chance to fill a similar role this year but at age 33, he'll have to show something in preseason and camp to keep the job. He won't be handed playing time if he isn't displaying his same burst as past seasons. Sproles has been maybe the best third-down or change-of-pace back in the game the last several seasons. He fits the role perfectly. Sproles has great speed and moves, but lacks the ideal size to be an every-down back. He also is a great return man, having return scores six of the last nine seasons. Fantasy Outlook: Sproles isn't a lock to repeat last season but should be worth grabbing come draft day, especially in PPR formats. Expect a bit of a drop but not much. He didn't show many signs of slowing down last season. He'll get around 600 total yards with 40 receptions and five or so scores.
 #137  Corey Coleman (WR) ClevelandBye: 13 
 
 #138  Will Fuller (WR) HoustonBye: 9 
 
 #139  Jermaine Kearse (WR) SeattleBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Kearse had a more prominent role for the Seahawks last season, especially after the trade of Percy Harvin. Kearse showed some flashes, having six games with 50 or more yards. But his season high in yards during the regular season was just 78, and he scored one touchdown all season. Kearse did make some plays during the Seahawks playoff run, scoring two of three games while topping the 100-yard mark in one of those games. He should play a similar role for the Seahawks this season, rotating in and out of the receiver spot for the team. Kearse does a good job in making the acrobatic catch and is good in the red zone. He still needs to improve his route running some and play more consistent football.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Kearse could see his reception and yardage totals rise a little but probably not enough to help most fantasy teams. He could get 45 receptions for 600 yards and a few scores. We don't see a huge jump in production.

 #140  Ryan Tannehill (QB) MiamiBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Tannehill was expected to take a step forward last season but that didn't happen. He had another up and down season, finishing 15th overall in fantasy quarterback scoring. Tannehill had topped 4,000-passing yards but scored just 35 total touchdowns while getting intercepted 12 times. The problem was consistency, having no passing touchdowns four games. Tannehill is the starting quarterback for the Dolphins and a new coaching staff could help jumpstart his career. Tannehill is a big kid with a strong arm that moves around the pocket well and will make plays with his feet. He is pretty accurate for a young quarterback and continues to improve in reading defenses. The Dolphins are more of a pass-first team, giving Tannehill plenty of chances to throw the ball.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Tannehill is a fantasy question mark, making him a boom or bust pick. He has the potential to be a top-10 guy or a guy that gets benched. You just don't know with him based on his track record. For now, expect more of the same, getting around 4,000 yards and 25 touchdowns.

 #141  Tony Romo (QB) DallasBye: 7 
 
Player News:
Romo had an injury plagued season, breaking his collarbone two different times. He was limited to four games all season. He also struggled some in his games, having five touchdowns to seven interceptions. He remains the starter for the Cowboys, though, and should be for the next few seasons. Romo has at least 26 touchdowns the last seven full seasons he has played. The Cowboys aren't as pass heavy as recent seasons but will still air it out. Romo will continue to get his chances. He has a plus arm and does well making plays on the run. Romo will force some throws and make some bad decisions but has improved in that area later in his career. He is 36 years old, so he has a few years left at playing at a high level.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Romo had a season to forget last year and you have to wonder if his collarbone is going to hold up at this point. This is a concern. But if healthy, Romo should be considered a low-end No. 1 for fantasy teams. Expect a season with around 4,000 yards and 29 touchdowns with 10 or so interceptions.

 #142  Breshad Perriman (WR) BaltimoreBye: 8 
 
Player News:
The Ravens used a first-round pick on Perriman, hoping to have found a starter in their offense for years to come. He should start from day one this season and serve as the top deep threat for the team. Perriman has good speed and size, doing a great job of making plays downfield. He is a big-play threat at receiver and should get plenty of chances to stretch the field this season. He needs to sharpen his route running, though, to be a more complete receiver at this level.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Perriman is going to have some big games but should be hit or miss for fantasy teams. Ironically, he kind of compares to the man he replaces in Baltimore, Torrey Smith. His numbers should improve over time but for now, expect around 60 receptions for 900 yards and six scores.

 #143  Pierre Garcon (WR) WashingtonBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Garcon had an erratic season, seeing a big dip in production from the previous year. He had just one 100-yard game and finished with fewer than 800-receiving yards. He did have three games with nine or more receptions, though, and had 105 targets on the season. He did lose out on work to DeSean Jackson, who emerged as the top target and big-play threat in the offense. Garcon isn't a polished route runner, but has certainly improved over the years. He has great speed and is a top deep threat. Garcon also does a good job of making big plays on shorter routes, using his speed to get by defenders.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Garcon didn't make many big plays last season, which hurt his numbers. He still got plenty of targets, which is encouraging for a rebound. He still isn't an elite option by any means but can be a top No. 3 for fantasy teams. We look for his overall numbers to climb, getting around 80 receptions for 1,000 yards and six touchdowns.

 #144  Brandon Coleman (WR) New OrleansBye: 5 
 
 #145  Jordan Howard (RB) ChicagoBye: 9 
 
 #146  Nelson Agholor (WR) PhiladelphiaBye: 4 
 
Player News:
The Eagles took Agholor in the first round of this year's draft. He becomes a starter for the team and should be a good fit for the offense. He has good hands and does well in making plays after the catch. He does a good job of getting open, finding the soft spot in coverages. He does lack a little size for the position, though, and could struggle a little to adjust to the size and speed of the pro game. Agholor also could help in the return game as a top return man for the Eagles.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Agholor will get his chances in this offense. The Eagles don't have much else to turn to, so Agholor will get thrown into the fire. Consider him more of a No. 3 or 4 for fantasy teams, though. He has a chance to get around 70 receptions for 900 yards and six scores.

 #147  Rashad Jennings (RB) New York GiantsBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Jennings finished the season with a flourish after doing little early in the year. He had 100-yard games two of his last three and a season-high 170-rushing yards the last game of the season. He finished the season with 100-plus total yards four straight games. Jennings had fewer than 65-rushing yards his first 12 games of the season, though. Jennings might be best suited for back duty at this stage of his career. He is 31 years old and never topped 1,000-rushing yards in a season. Jennings has been a solid third-down back throughout much of his career. He has good hands for the passing game and big-play ability. He also displays very good speed. Jennings doesn't run with a ton of power, though, and isn't great between the tackles but made improvements in both those areas the last few seasons. Fantasy Outlook: Jennings could see a dip in production with fewer touches, which seems likely. He still has some potential as a No. 3 back but don't count on him to be anything more than that. Look for a season with around 700 total yards and a few scores.
 #148  Rueben Randle (WR) PhiladelphiaBye: 4 
 
Player News:
Randle had his best season to date last year but still struggled with consistency, even in an expanded role. He nearly had a 1,000-yard season. Randle had three 100-yard games but nine games with fewer than 50 yards. He also caught just 71 passes despite being targeted 127 times. Randle won't be handed anything this year and will have to prove his worth to continue to get his usual snaps in this offense. Randle has very good size and speed. He is a tough cover at 6-4. Randle is a big-play threat that has solid hands. He still needs some work on his route running, though, and lacks consistency.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Randle was setup for big things last year but didn't live up to the hype. He is likely to see a dip in production this year with fewer targets. Consider him a No. 4 or 5 fantasy receiver. Randle can finish with around 55 receptions for 800 yards and a few scores.

 #149  Chris Johnson (RB) ArizonaBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Johnson didn't do a whole lot in his first season with the Jets. He did have a 100-yard rushing game but failed to top 70-rushing yards in any other game last season. Johnson had just over 800 total yards and two scores as he split the work at running back with the Jets. Last season broke a streak of six straight 1,000-yard seasons. Johnson turns 30 shortly after the start of the season, so his career is likely trending in a downward fashion. He is best suited as a backup. Johnson still has plus speed and great moves in the open field. He also runs with a little power for a back of his size. Johnson also is a very good receiver, catching at least 24 passes each of his first seven seasons in the league. But as mentioned, he has lacked consistency the last few seasons, not playing near the level of early in his career.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Johnson isn't the same fantasy back as past seasons. He might have a good game or two this season but don't expect him to revert to past form. He might get around 700 total yards with a few scores, making him reserve material for fantasy teams.

 #150  Ted Ginn Jr. (WR) CarolinaBye: 7 
 
Player News:
Ginn didn't get much work as a receiver last season but did well as a return man once again, scoring a return touchdown. He had just 14 receptions in a deep reserve role for the Cardinals. He heads back to Carolina this season, a team he had one of the better seasons of his career. Ginn had 36 receptions for the Panthers just two seasons back. He should serve as a reserve receiver for the Panthers and get plenty of work on special teams. Ginn has track speed, making him a good deep threat in the passing game and top return man. He struggles with drops, though, and isn't much of a route runner.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Ginn isn't much of a fantasy option because he'll be inconsistent in his role. But he could be worth a spot start along the way in the right matchup. He can produce the big game if he breaks off a long play. Ginn can get around 20 catches for 300 yards with a score or two.

 #151  Bilal Powell (RB) New York JetsBye: 11 
 
Player News:
The addition of Chris Johnson meant a big dropoff in touches for Powell last season. He had just 44 touches for the season after gaining nearly 1,000 total yards the previous year. Powell is likely to be the No. 3 back again this season but could get a little more work with Johnson gone. Powell is more of a power back, doing well as a downhill runner and between the tackles. He doesn't have breakaway speed, but is a solid one-cut runner. Powell also catches the ball well and can be an asset in the passing game.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Powell should improve on last season but that doesn't mean he is worth grabbing for fantasy teams. He could get around 20 receptions and 400 total yards, giving him very little fantasy value.

 #152  Dion Lewis (RB) New EnglandBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Lewis broke his leg before the start of last season and missed the entire year. Lewis hasn't shown a whole lot since entering the league but will challenge for a backup spot this season. He is young enough to get his career going but time is running out some. Lewis is a small back with good moves and decent hands. He makes plays in space and can be an asset in the passing game. Lewis also doesn't do too badly between the tackles despite not being the biggest back.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Lewis could get some work this season and has some reception upside, but isn't worth a roster spot. He isn't guaranteed any playing time and will have to earn it. He could get 20 or so receptions and around 300 total yards if all goes well for him.

 #153  Michael Thomas (WR) New OrleansBye: 5 
 
 #154  C.J. Prosise (RB) SeattleBye: 5 
 
 #155  Mike Wallace (WR) BaltimoreBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Wallace had another up and down season with the Dolphins but at least did a great job of finding the end zone. He finished with 10 touchdowns, helping him to finish 20th overall in fantasy scoring at receiver. But on the flip side, Wallace had fewer than 900-receiving yards and caught 67 passes. He had just one 100-yard game all season. Wallace has two 1,000-yard seasons in his career but has three straight seasons with fewer than 950 yards. He hasn't been nearly as consistent in recent years. Wallace has great speed and the ability to make a big play every time the ball is in his hands (averages 15.6 yards per catch for his career). His route running still isn't top notch but improved. Wallace also has good hands and a knack for making the big play. He moves to the Vikings this year, getting a chance to start for his new team.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Wallace is a frustrating fantasy player. He is all over the map but always capable of the big game, making him intriguing to take. It will be hard for him to repeat his touchdown total of last season, so expect a bit of a drop in that area. He has some potential as a top No. 3 for fantasy teams but don't take him as anything higher. He brings to much risk. Wallace should get around 75 receptions for 1,000 yards and seven or eight touchdowns. A move to Minnesota should get him a few more catches and yards.

 #156  Darren McFadden (RB) DallasBye: 7 
 
Player News:
McFadden quickly emerged as the starter for the Cowboys last season and had his second 1,000-yard season of his career. He had five 100-yard games and finished with 1,417 total yards. The big fantasy knock on him was a lack of scores, finding the end zone just three times. The rest of his numbers were great, averaging 4.6 yards per carry while catching 40 passes. McFadden proved he could be a starter in this league once again. He turns 29 before the start of the season, so he is running out of time to remain starting. He'll move to a backup role this season with Cowboys taking Ezekiel Elliott in the draft. McFadden is a pretty complete back. He catches the ball well, can churn out the tough yards and has enough speed to make the big play every time he touches the ball. He can be a game changer. He has a hard time staying healthy, though, but has played a full season the last two years. Fantasy Outlook: McFadden had about a career year last year but was still just 13th in fantasy running back scoring. He isn't going to repeat with Elliott getting most of the work at running back for the Cowboys. He might get around 500 or so total yards with a few scores. His stock took a big hit after the NFL draft.
 #157  Cecil Shorts III (WR) HoustonBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Shorts had a bit of a disappointing season with the Jaguars, seeing his numbers dip for the second straight season. He did miss three games because of injury but wasn't doing a whole lot even with those missed games. Shorts had two 100-yard games but 10 games with fewer than 50 yards. He had less than 600 yards for the season. Shorts is at a bit of a crossroads in his career, seeing his numbers decline instead of get better. He has enjoyed some past success, though, and should help as a No. 2 or 3 receiver with the Texans. Shorts doesn't really have any outstanding skills, but makes the most of his ability. He runs above-average routes, has decent speed and pretty good hands. He has a knack for making the big play at receiver.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Shorts can improve on last season but don't expect a big jump. He is worth a look as a No. 4 fantasy receiver. He has some potential to do good things. He can finish with around 70 receptions for 800 yards and five or so touchdowns.

 #158  Khiry Robinson (RB) New York JetsBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Robinson broke his leg in Week 8 and missed the remainder of the esaosn. He didn't do a whole lot before the injury but was getting some chances. He scored four touchdowns but average just 3.2 yards per carry and didn't top 50-rushing yards in a game. Robinson had multiple receptions six of eight games. Robinson remains more backup material for NFL teams. He'll try to win a depth role this season with the Jets, likely serving as the No. 3 on the team. Robinson has eight career touchdowns in three seasons but his season high in rushing yards is just 362. Robinson has good speed but enough power to make plays inside. He has a good build for the running back position. He is improving as a receiver but still isn't a polished player in that role. He has lacked some consistency since entering the league. Fantasy Outlook: Robinson seemed primed for good things last season but wasn't doing much before getting hurt last year. He remains a ho-hum option at the position for fantasy teams. He might get around 400 or 500 total yards with a few scores.
 #159  Reggie Bush (RB) San FranciscoBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Bush suffered a freak knee injury last year, slipping on the sidelines after running out of bounds. He needed knee surgery but avoided the dreaded ACL tear. He should be ready to go for the coming year. Bush had just 12 touches in five games before the injury. You have to wonder how much he has left in the tank. He is 31 years old and coming off a knee injury. Nothing is guaranteed for Bush going forward. He'll compete for a reserve role. Bush still has pretty explosive speed with great moves in the open field. He has struggled with some consistency issues in the past but done better in that area later in his career. Bush can still be a playmaker in the open field. He has struggled with injuries throughout his career, playing a full season twice in 10 years. Fantasy Outlook: Bush still has a little value in PPR formats but don't expect his numbers from past seasons. He is on a downward trend. He might get around 30 receptions and 400 or so total yards if all goes well for him. He'll be a bit of a risky pick this year because of the question marks.
 #160  Sterling Shepard (WR) New York GiantsBye: 8 
 
 #161  Kamar Aiken (WR) BaltimoreBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Aiken had 11 receptions the last five games of the season after not catching a pass the first 12 weeks of the year. He got some chances as a No. 3 or 4 receiver for the Ravens and will compete for that role this year. Aiken had a knack for finding the end zone, scoring three times on the season. He has good size for the receiver spot and runs pretty well. He has been in the league several season, though, and last year was his first catching a pass, which isn't a great sign. He helps on special teams and as a depth player at receiver.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Aiken got more work last season and could build on that some this year, but don't expect a breakout year. He might get around 20 catches for 300 yards with a touchdown or two.

 #162  Anquan Boldin (WR) ---Bye: - 
 
Player News:
Boldin had his second straight 1,000-yard season with the 49ers. He led the way at receiver for the team, catching 83 passes. Boldin had just one 100-yard game but was pretty consistent all season, having 12 games with 50 or more yards. Boldin is 34 years old and you have to think he will slow down sooner or later. But until that happens, he'll continue to start. Boldin is a big, strong receiver. He isn't a speed demon, but runs good routes and has solid hands.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Boldin isn't going to repeat last season but can still help fantasy teams. Expect around 70 receptions for 900 yards and five touchdowns. He is more of a No. 3 or 4 fantasy receiver. He can't continue his current pace at this stage of his career.

 #163  Leonte Carroo (WR) MiamiBye: 8 
 
 #164  Tyler Boyd (WR) CincinnatiBye: 9 
 
 #165  Chris Hogan (WR) New EnglandBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Hogan got a lot more playing time his second season in the league, getting a few starts because of injury. Hogan filled the role pretty well, catching a career-high 41 passes for 426 yards and four touchdowns. Hogan had five games with 50-plus yards, showing some decent consistency with his chances. He will challenge for the No. 3 or 4 receiver spot for the Bills this season. Hogan isn't a flashy receiver but has good size and moves the chains. He is a good fit for the slot, a role he'll try to serve this season.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Hogan is likely to get less work this year with some better options ahead of him on the depth chart now. He probably shouldn't be on fantasy radars. He might get around 25 catches for 300 yards with a score or two.

 #166  Jaelen Strong (WR) HoustonBye: 9 
 
Player News:
The Texans added a big, strong physical receiver in this year's draft, taking Strong in the third round. Strong has good hands and is a big target at receiver. He lacks some elite speed, though, and could improve his route running a little. Strong has a good chance to start from day one his rookie season but won't be handed the job.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Strong could be a little inconsistent his rookie season, but you have to like his potential down the road. He could be a top PPR receiver in a year or two. For now, expect around 60 receptions for 900 yards and five scores. He has some value as a reserve for fantasy teams, deserving some spot starts along the way.

 #167  Kyle Juszczyk (RB) BaltimoreBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Juszczyk got a lot more work offensively his second season. He didn't get a carry but had 19 receptions and his first NFL touchdown as the starting fullback for the Ravens. He serves the role well and should continue starting at fullback. Juszczyk is a pretty good pass catcher and has good speed for a fullback. He excels as a blocker, though. He isn't likely getting many chances to run the ball but should continue to get some receptions.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Juszczyk might be a slight, slight help in PPR formats but even that might be a stretch. He could top 20 receptions but don't expect much more.

 #168  Corey Brown (WR) CarolinaBye: 7 
 
Player News:
Brown had a productive rookie season, eventually getting work as the No. 3 receiver for the Panthers. He finished with 21 receptions, including catches in six straight games to end his season and five receptions in two playoff games. He has a good chance to be the slot receiver for the Panthers from day one this year. Brown fits that role pretty well. He lacks some size for the receiver spot but runs good routes and makes plays in pace.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Brown should be able to improve some on last season but don't overlook the fact the Panthers have little history of producing good numbers for their No. 3 receiver. He could get around 40 receptions for 500 yards with a few scores.

 #169  Josh Doctson (WR) WashingtonBye: 9 
 
 #170  Martellus Bennett (TE) New EnglandBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Bennett had a career season last year, setting career highs in receptions, yards and touchdowns. A move to Chicago has been a great thing for Bennett. He had two 100-yard games last season and three or more receptions all but two games. Bennett has 750-plus yards two straight seasons with the Bears. He is a huge part of the passing game and should get his chances in their new offense this season. Bennett might be the second most dependable receiver on the team right now. Bennett can make big plays because of his size and speed. Bennett isn't much of a blocker, though, and his work ethic has been questioned in the past.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Bennett took his game to a new level last season, finishing fourth overall in tight end scoring. He might have a hard time repeating last year but can come close in this offense. He'll get his targets and definitely has value as a No. 1 fantasy tight end. Expect around 80 receptions for 800 yards and six or so scores.

 #171  Antonio Gates (TE) San DiegoBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Just when you thought Gates was done, he has another big season. Gates was third overall in fantasy scoring for tight ends. He had one of the better seasons of his career, finishing with 12 touchdowns and just over 800-receiving yards. Gates had nine games with 50-plus yards and scored touchdowns seven of 16 games. He also played a full season and has missed just a game the last three seasons, shedding his injury-prone label some. Gates is 35 years old, though, and you really have to wonder how much he has left in the tank. He has two straight seasons with 800-plus yards. Gates seems to have lost some of his speed but still does a great job of running routes and catching passes. He isn't the big-play threat of past years but can move the chains and do well in the red zone.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Gates is a bit of a risk at this stage of his career. He looked great last year, but he has a lot of wear and tear on his body and is getting up there in years. Consider him a low-end No. 1 tight end and expect a few more erratic games from Gates. He can get around 55 receptions for 700 yards and six or so touchdowns.

 #172  Dwayne Allen (TE) IndianapolisBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Allen had another solid season as the No. 2 tight end for the Colts. He got his weekly chances but wasn't a huge producer overall, getting 50 targets on the season. He topped 50 yards three times and scored eight touchdowns, which is impressive considering he caught just 29 passes. Allen was a top red-zone threat for the Colts. He also missed some time because of injury, hurting his overall numbers. He should continue to play a similar role for the Colts this year. He'll be the No. 2 tight end but should get his playing time in that role. Allen is a solid pass catcher with a knack for picking up first downs. He has enough speed to stretch the field and is a tough cover because of his size. He isn't a great blocker but is making strides in that area.

Fantasy Outlook:  
It would be a surprise to see Allen finish with eight touchdowns once again but his reception and yard totals should be better if he can play a full season. He is worth a look as a No. 2 tight end for fantasy teams. He can finish with around 45 receptions for 600 yards and five or six scores.

 #173  Kyle Rudolph (TE) MinnesotaBye: 6 
 
Player News:
Injuries once again plagued Rudolph last year, missing a lot of time because of knee and ankle problems. Last year was supposed to be his breakout season, but Rudolph wasn't on the field enough for that to happen. Rudolph had 24 receptions in 9 games and had 50 or more yards three of those games. He did produce some when healthy and playing. If he plays a full year, Rudolph finishes with 43 receptions for 411 yards and four touchdowns, which aren't great numbers. Rudolph has failed to top 500 yards in any season in the NFL. He is the No. 1 tight end for the Vikings but could be in a make or break season. Rudolph isn't much of a blocker but a top pass catcher. He has plus speed, very good hands and the ability to make the tough catch.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Rudolph has plenty of talent and the potential for good things but it is hard to trust him based on his track record. Take a solid tight end as your No. 1 and hope Rudolph has a breakthrough season as your No. 2 fantasy tight end. He can get 50 receptions for 600 yards with five or so touchdowns.

 #174  Zach Ertz (TE) PhiladelphiaBye: 4 
 
Player News:
Ertz has a big second season, emerging as the top pass-catching tight end for the Eagles. He finished with just over 700 yards and 13th overall in fantasy scoring at tight end. His fantasy numbers would have been better if not for a lack of scores. Ertz scored just two touchdowns all season. The good news is Ertz caught 58 passes and was targeted 89 times. He is the No. 1 tight end for the Eagles and could get even more work this season with the Eagles having some openings in the passing game. Ertz isn't really a speed demon at tight end but runs very good routes for a young player and has solid hands. He also blocks pretty well but could improve some in that area. He does lack a little speed to create big plays down the field but makes up for that with his hands and route running.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Ertz is a fantasy tight end on the upswing. He can take another leap forward this season and serve as a No. 1 for fantasy teams. Consider him a top-10 fantasy tight end. Ertz can finish with 60 receptions for around 750 yards and seven touchdowns.

 #175  Tyrod Taylor (QB) BuffaloBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Taylor won the starter's job before last season and had a very good first year as the starter for the Bills. He has earned that job for the next several years. Taylor had 24 total touchdowns to just six interceptions. He completed an impressive 64 percent of his passes and ran for nearly 600 yards. Taylor was a top dual threat that was a big plus for the Bills offense. He had four three-touchdown games. He did have some struggles along the way, but should improve his consistency with more seasoning. Taylor has a very strong arm and throws a good deep ball. He will struggled with accuracy at times and still holds onto the ball a little long, but is improving in both areas. He doesn't force many passes and will make plays with his legs when given a chance.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Taylor can improve on last season, a season he finished 17th in quarterback scoring despite missing two games because of injury. He is a fantasy player on the rise that could be a low-end No. 1 for teams this season. He can throw for around 3,500 yards with 30 total touchdowns and around 600-rushing yards.

 #176  Ryan Fitzpatrick (QB) New York JetsBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Fitzpatrick had arguably the best season of his career, finishing 12th overall in fantasy quarterback scoring. He was a big surprise as the starter for the Jets, having 33 total touchdowns to 15 interceptions. He finished 95 yards shy of a 4,000-yard season. He set career highs in passing yards and touchdown passes. Fitzpatrick had just one 300-yard game but nine games with 250-plus yards. He earned another season as the starter for the Jets with his big season last year. Fitzpatrick doesn't have a great arm, but runs well for a quarterback and has a knack for making plays. He has at least 184 or more rushing yards seven of eight seasons. Fitzpatrick doesn't throw a great deep ball and will force some throws, but does a good job of hitting his receivers in stride. He formed a great rapport with Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker last season, making tons of big plays with both players.

Fantasy Outlook:  
It would be hard to see Fitzpatrick matching last season but he can be worth some spot starts for fantasy teams as a top backup. He has potential in this offense with some top playmakers at the receiver position. Expect a season with around 3,500 yards, 30 touchdowns and 250-rushing yards.

 #177  Marcus Mariota (QB) TennesseeBye: 13 
 
Player News:
A knee injury cut his season short, but Mariota has a fine rookie year for the Titans. He had 22 touchdowns to 10 interceptions and there for nearly 3,000 yards despite missing four games and playing little in another. Mariota had plenty of big games along the way, having four three-touchdown games. He also threw for more than 200 yards all but three games, showing some consistency as a rookie. He did fail to score a touchdown five times, proving he wasn't a sure thing every week just yet. Mariota is the franchise quarterback and starter for years to come. He fits the role well, showing last season he could be a superstar in this league. He has good size, a great arm and can make plays on the move. He can make all the throws and also runs well at the position. He will turnover the ball a little more than you would like but will makes strides in that area as he gets older.

Fantasy Outlook:  
His value would be better if he had more top options to work with at receiver but you still have to like his chances this coming year to produce for fantasy teams. He is more of a spot starter at this stage of the game, though. He can throw for around 3,500 yards with 28 or so total touchdowns and 12 interceptions. He can also near 300-rushing yards, giving him added value at the position.

 #178  Sam Bradford (QB) PhiladelphiaBye: 4 
 
Player News:
Bradford had an up and down season as the starter for the Eagles. He had 19 touchdowns to 14 interceptions but did complete 65 percent of his passes for nearly 4,000 yards. He also missed a couple games because of injury, so his numbers could have been better. He finished the season well, which is encouraging going forward. He had 300-yard games three straight to end his year and five touchdowns during that stretch. Bradford is yet to have that breakout season but is capable. Bradford can make all the throws, is extremely accurate, and moves around the pocket well to make plays. Bradford is a better athlete than he is given credit for. He does lock onto a receiver too often, though, and doesn't do a great job of going through his progressions. He also has big-time durability concerns, playing a full season just once the past five seasons. Bradford should start again for the Eagles this year but is keeping the set warm for rookie Carson Wentz. If the Eagles struggle as a team, Bradford could find his way on the bench to give Wentz some playing time.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Bradford is a big injury risk but has some potential for the big game any given week when starting. You just can't depend on him as a No. 1 fantasy quarterback because of his injury concerns and the rookie pushing him for playing time. Get a good quarterback to pair with him if you are going to roll the dice with Bradford. He can throw for 3,800 yards with 25 total touchdowns and 12 interceptions.

 #179  Jay Cutler (QB) ChicagoBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Cuter had a pretty good season in the Bears new offense last season. He was without his top receiver much of the year and his starting running back also was injured at times, but Cutler made some plays. He completed 64 percent of his passes and had 22 total touchdowns to 11 interceptions. Cutler remains the franchise quarterback for the Bears and could do even better this season, his second season in the offense and with better weapons to work with at receiver. Cuter has just one 4,000-yard season for his career and two seasons ago is his only to hit the 30-touchdown mark. He has a huge arm, though, and does a great job of making plays downfield. He can make all the throws. But he will make some poor decisions and force throws, turning the ball over too often for a guy that has played in the league for 10 seasons.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Cutler is more of a platoon option for fantasy teams but can help in that role. He'll produce the big play at times. He could get around 3,700 yards and 26 total touchdowns to 15 interceptions for the season.

 #180  Brian Hartline (WR) ---Bye: - 
 
Player News:
Hartline wasn't a very big part of the Dolphins' offense last year. He had two straight 1,000-yard seasons before last year, failing to even get to 500 yards. He was targeted just 63 times all season. Hartline had 50 or more yard just four times and went three games without even catching a pass. Hartline has been a productive receiver in the past and should get his chance to return to a starting lineup, signing with the Browns this offseason. Hartline has good size, toughness and pretty good hands. He runs routes well and has enough speed to stretch the field, but lacks some explosiveness. He will make some big plays, though, and seems to have the knack for the big game.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Hartline has 12 touchdowns in six seasons, so his lack of scores hurts his fantasy value. He'll get some catches and yards, though, so he has some value for fantasy teams. We expect his numbers to rise this year with the Browns but don't expect his third 1,000-yard season. He'll get around 70 catches for 900 yards and a few scores.

 #181  Jamison Crowder (WR) WashingtonBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Crowder has a chance to grab the No. 3 or slot receiver role with the Redskins his rookie season. He is a small receiver but has good moves in space and knows how to get open. He gets by with his speed and quickness at this point of his career. Crowder lacks some bulk and height, which likely limits him from playing on the outside in the NFL.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Crowder has a little reception potential but that is about it. He isn't going to have many big games as the fourth or fifth option in this offense. He might get around 35 receptions for 400 yards and a few scores.

 #182  Steve Johnson (WR) San DiegoBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Johnson had two games with more than 50 yards, including a 103-yard showing in Week 3, but did next to nothing besides those games. He did miss some time late in the year because of a knee injury, but had just 435 yards in 13 games. Johnson has fewer than 600 yards each of the past two seasons. His career is trending the wrong direction. He will get a chance to resurrect things this year in San Diego, getting a chance to start or serve as the No. 3 receiver for his new team. Johnson is 29 years old and seems to have lost a little in recent years. He is a former 1,000-yard season with plenty of past success but hasn't achieved much in recent seasons, which is a concern. Johnson has decent size for the receiver spot. He runs well, makes the tough catch and is a big-play threat. He does struggle with some key drops at times.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Johnson isn't the same receiver as past seasons. He could rebound some from the past few years if he gets the playing time but don't expect him to return to the 1,000-yard mark. He could get 65 receptions for 800 yards and a few scores.

 #183  Alex Smith (QB) Kansas CityBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Smith had another respectable season as the starter for the Chiefs. He finished with 22 total touchdowns to just seven interceptions. He had a career high 3,486-passing yards, getting to throw the ball a little more because of an injury to Jamaal Charles. He also ran for a career-high 498 yards, which as a big plus for fantasy teams. Smith was 16th in fantasy quarterback scoring. He has 400-plus rushing yards two of the past three seasons. He runs very well for a quarterback. Smith has a big arm, moves around the pocket pretty well and will make plays running the ball. His accuracy has improved through the years and he limits turnovers. Smith doesn't take many of chances downfield, though, and plays a pretty conservative game although having Jeremy Maclin last season opened things up a bit for him. He has three straight 3,000-yard seasons with the Chiefs and at least 20-passing touchdowns two of those three years.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Smith is not an exciting fantasy option. He is worth some spot starts but his overall numbers are more of a No. 2 than anything. He just doesn't score enough touchdowns. His rushing yards are a plus, though, and he'll have some big games throwing the ball in the right matchup. It wouldn't surprise to see his numbers maybe reach career best this season, but that still makes him fantasy backup material. He can throw for around 3,500 yards with 35 total touchdowns while running for around 400 yards.

 #184  Teddy Bridgewater (QB) MinnesotaBye: 6 
 
Player News:
Bridgewater didn't have that breakout season that most expected. He didn't play badly but his overall numbers weren't too exciting. He had 17 total touchdowns to nine interceptions and threw for a little more than 3,000 yards. The Vikings were a run-first team that lead to Bridgewater being more for a game manager for the team. He had just two games all season with multiple touchdowns. He could get to air the ball out a tad more this season but don't expect the Vikings to be a pass-first team this year. Bridgewater is a top competitor and winner. He is a smart quarterback and has a knack for making the big play. He is a dual threat at quarterback, having 190-plus rushing yards each of his first two seasons. He doesn't have a great arm and struggles some with the deep ball but excels with the quick hitters and shorter throws.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Bridgewater can be much better this year but not good enough to be a fantasy starter. He'll remain a backup. He still lacks some of the elite options at receiver, which doesn't help his production. Expect around 3,500 yards with 25 total touchdown and 12 interceptions. He'll also run for around 200 yards.

 #185  Jason Witten (TE) DallasBye: 7 
 
Player News:
Witten was once again a top-10 fantasy tight end last season, finishing ninth overall in tight end scoring. He had just over 700 yards and five touchdowns. Witten didn't post huge numbers but was consistent for the Cowboys. Witten had multiple receptions all but a game and six games with 50-plus yards. Witten did see his numbers decrease for the second straight season, though. And at age 33, you have to wonder how much he has left in the tank. He'll remain the No. 1 tight end for the Cowboys but could see his playing time cut into a little more. Witten is an athletic tight end with above-average speed. He does well in traffic and has very good hands. He also is a favorite target of Tony Romo, which bodes well for his targets.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Witten remains a good fantasy tight end but could slip a little more this season. His numbers have been decreasing some in recent seasons, which is a concern. He should get about 55 receptions for around 650 yards and five touchdowns. He is a low-end No. 1 fantasy tight end but make sure you have a good backup behind him, worthy of getting some starts.

 #186  Charles Clay (TE) BuffaloBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Clay had another productive season as the No. 1 tight end for the Dolphins. He had more than 600 yards and 58 receptions despite missing two games because of injury. Clay had multiple receptions all but a game. He did top 50 yards just four times, though, serving as more of a chain mover than big-play threat. He takes his talent to Buffalo this season to serve as their No. 1 tight end. The Bills don't have quite the passing attack of Miami, so a drop in targets wouldn't be a surprise for Clay. Clay is a good blocker with big-play ability at tight end. He has good speed to stretch the field and can make plays after the catch.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Clay sees a bit of a dip in fantasy value with a move to Buffalo. His production could be a little more erratic in this offense. He could get around 50 catches for 600 yards with five touchdowns. Don't overvalue him come draft day. Remember, his career high in scores is six and he has just 14 touchdowns in four seasons. He is a backup for fantasy teams.

 #187  Marquess Wilson (WR) ChicagoBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Wilson had a lost season last year because of a collarbone injury. He didn't play until Week 11 and had just 17 receptions all season. Wilson is going to get his chance this year, though, serving as the No. 3 receiver for the Bears. Wilson is a tall receiver with speed and big-play ability. He lacks a little strength, which is a concern, but is stronger than when he came into the league.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Wilson is ready to take a big jump forward this season. He has good potential in what should be a pass-friendly offense. He can have around 800 yards and five or so scores. Consider him a No. 4 or 5 for fantasy teams.

 #188  Seth Roberts (WR) OaklandBye: 10 
 
 #189  Jared Cook (TE) Green BayBye: 4 
 
Player News:
Cook's second season with the Rams was very similar to his first. He had almost the same numbers, finishing with one more reception (52) but 37 fewer yards (634). Cook had multiple receptions all but two games, but had more than 50 yards just five times. He got his catches but wasn't much of a big-play threat. He will remain the No. 1 tight end for the Rams for the coming season. Cook has a ton of talent but hasn't produced quite as expected to date. He has a lot of upside because of his athleticism. Cook has plus speed and decent hands. He isn't going to help much as a blocker, but catches passes and runs routes like a receiver. He has lacked consistency throughout his career, though, and been plagued by bad drops.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Cook isn't a guy fantasy teams can trust based on his track record but he certainly has big-game potential. Don't expect his stats to suddenly take off this year, though. If he was going to have a huge season, it would have been by now. Consider him a No. 2 for fantasy teams, getting around 55 receptions for 650 yards with four or five touchdowns.

 #190  Benjamin Watson (TE) BaltimoreBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Watson got very little work as a backup for the Saints last season. He caught 20 passes, giving him 39 receptions in two seasons with the Saints. He serves his role well but isn't a huge factor offensively for the team. Watson is a big, fast target over the middle and a nice deep threat, considering his size. He isn't much of a blocker, but has improved in that area later in his career, which is getting him on the field more.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Watson is trending down. He still might have a big game or two but his days of helping fantasy teams seem about done. Watson might get 15 receptions for 200 yards with a score or two.

 #191  Jordan Cameron (TE) MiamiBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Cameron didn't follow up his breakout season as expected, failing to get to 500 yards for the year. He did miss six games because of injury but did top 50 yards just twice all year. The erratic Browns' offense wasn't a good thing for Cameron, though. He heads to Miami this year to take over as their No. 1 tight end. He should get his targets in a pass-friendly offense. Cameron has good speed, can jump and the size to be an elite tight end. He still remains a bit raw at times but is improving in all facets of the game. He still needs to refine his route running and improve as a blocker but certainly is getting better in those areas.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Cameron isn't a surefire No. 1 fantasy tight end. He'll be worth some spot starts, moving to a much better passing game this year, but expect up and down production throughout the season. He can get around 50 receptions for 700 yards with six touchdowns.

 #192  Javorius Allen (RB) BaltimoreBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Allen was drafted by the Ravens and will challenge for a backup job with his new team. He has some competition for carries, though, and might have a hard time finding the field as a rookie. Allen brings some good things to the table, though. He is an effective runner between the tackles but also has enough speed to bounce plays to the outside. Allen doesn't always make the right reads, though, and will lose some yards on occasion. He could improve his vision some to be a more complete back.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Allen could see the field a little his rookie season but don't expect a ton of playing time. He might get 300 or 400 total yards in a reserve role, making him a stretch for fantasy teams.

 #193  Joique Bell (RB) DetroitBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Bell was in and out of the starting lineup last season but didn't have quite the season of the past few years. He did miss three games with injury but had just double-digit carries two times all last season. He finished with 597 total yards and four touchdowns. He did do well in the passing game, catching 22 passes. Bell remains more of a complimentary back than a starter. He is going to be 30 years old before the season starts and his career high in rushing yards is 860. He does have at least 22 receptions in all his seasons. Bell has pretty good size for the running back spot and does well between the tackles. He doesn't have elite speed to make a bunch of plays to the outside but does well with his skill set. Bell is a good receiver out of the backfield and does well in short-yardage situations. Fantasy Outlook: Bell can help as a flex play or spot play for fantasy teams but don't count on him as an every-week starter. His numbers are going the wrong way at this stage of his career. He could get around 700 total yards and 25 receptions with a few scores.
 #194  Jacob Tamme (TE) AtlantaBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Tamme got limited work in a reserve role for the Broncos last season, catching 14 passes on the season. He'll have a chance to play a bigger role this season with the Falcons. He could be the top pass-catching tight end on the team. He'll need to show he still has something left in the tank, though. Tamme has two seasons with 500-plus yards but has fewer than 200 yards two straight seasons. Tamme is a solid tight end with the speed to stretch the field. He plays more like a receiver than a tight end, making him a tough cover for the opposition. Tamme isn't much of a blocker, but he isn't used much in that role.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Tamme should see a bump in production this year but still isn't a guy to take come draft day. Look for a season with around 25 receptions for 300 yards with a score or two.

 #195  DeAngelo Williams (RB) PittsburghBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Williams took advantage of getting plenty of starts last season because of suspension and injury to LeVeon Bell. Williams had a great year, finishing an amazing fifth overall in fantasy running back scoring despite not starting all year. Williams had 1,274 total yards and 11 touchdowns. He had four 100-yard games and at least four receptions six games. He proved he can still start in this league and was a great fit for the Steelers offense. He should assume a backup role with the team once again. Williams has plenty of starting experience and success, topping 1,000-rushing yards two times during his career. Williams is a big-play back. He also will run with some power, but is a home-run threat with the ball in his hands. Williams is a much more patient runner than earlier in his career and can help in the passing game. Fantasy Outlook: Williams is more of a mid to late-round pick this season. You can't expect him to get the playing time he did last year. But he proved he can be a fantasy force when starting, so he is worth grabbing come draft day. He is likely to get around 500 total yards and a few scores in a reserve role.
 #196  Vance McDonald (TE) San FranciscoBye: 8 
 
Player News:
McDonald had just two receptions in eight games last season. He was the top backup for the 49ers much of the year but got few targets, which isn't a surprise because the starter got little work as well. McDonald should be the No. 2 tight end for the 49ers this season but won't be handed the job. McDonald has 10 receptions in two NFL seasons. McDonald has some potential the tight end spot. McDonald can stretch the field with his speed and can make plays after the catch. He runs routes pretty well for a young player and should get better as he gets used to the pro game. McDonald isn't a great blocker, though, so his playing time could be limited to passing downs until that improves.

Fantasy Outlook:  
McDonald doesn't have much fantasy value as long as Davis is around. Until he is gone, don't bother with McDonald on your roster. He might get 20 catches for 250 yards and a touchdown.

 #197  Larry Donnell (TE) New York GiantsBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Donnell had a breakout season for the Giants, emerging as the starting tight end for the team. He had more than 60 receptions for 623 yards and six touchdowns. He had at least three receptions all but five games. He also had six games with 50-plus yards. He should be the starter for the Giants once again this year. Donnell doesn't have top speed for the position but runs good routes and has pretty good hands. He has a knack for getting open and moving the chains.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Donnell has potential as a starter in this solid passing game. He might be able to improve some on last season, making him worth a look as a low-end No. 1 fantasy tight end. He can get around 65 receptions for 650 yards and six or seven touchdowns.

 #198  Virgil Green (TE) DenverBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Green caught just three passes last season, serving a deep reserve role for the Broncos. He has just 20 receptions in four NFL seasons. This could be a make or break year for Green, who has a shot to be the top backup this season. Green has good size for the position but runs well and is capable of the big play. He hasn't made many plays since entering the league, though, and needs to start showing more consistency on the field to play a bigger role this season.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Green could set career highs across the board but that doesn't mean he'll be a fantasy force. He is a deep reserve for fantasy teams because of his upside if he gets playing time. But for now, expect around 30 receptions for 400 yards with a few scores.

 #199  Jace Amaro (TE) New York JetsBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Amaro didn't have a huge rookie season but was involved in the offense and got some work, catching 38 passes on 53 targets. He had four games with 50-plus yards but his season high in yards was 68. And he caught 10 passes in a game, giving him just 28 receptions his other 13 games. Amaro was hit or miss in a passing game that struggled much of the year. He is the No. 1 tight end for the Jets, though, and should be a big part of an improved offense going forward. Amaro is a very good athlete that does well after the catch. He also has solid hands and pretty good speed. He isn't much of a blocker, though, and will need to continue to improve in that area to get more playing time.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Amaro has the potential to improve on last season but don't expect a huge leap in this offense. He is worth a look as a No. 2, though. He could get around 50 receptions for 550 yards and five or so touchdowns.

 #200  Chris Thompson (RB) WashingtonBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Thompson was on the Redskins practice squad much of the year before getting signed to the active roster late in the season. He got a little work, finishing with nine touches. He was most effective in the passing game, catching six passes for 27 yards and a touchdown. Thompson will compete to stay on the active roster all season this year. Thompson could be an ideal change-of-pace back. Thompson has speed and good moves in space. Thompson also catches the ball well and is a willing blocker.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Thompson has a chance to grab a larger role this coming year but don't look for a big jump in production. He could get 20 or so receptions and finish with a few hundred total yards with a score a two. He might have some value in deep PPR leagues but that is about it.
