2013 DRAFT GUIDE

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 Calvin Johnson a big plus for fantasy teams. Top receivers have even more value in PPR leagues. 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 Randall Cobb in 2013? There are some breakout candidates. T.Y. Hilton seemed to just scratch the surface last season and should take his game to another level in the Colts pass-first offense. Josh Gordon is a talented player that should emerge as the No. 1 receiver in a better Browns passing game. And Torrey Smith hasn't really put it together to date but if he is ever going to do it, we think this is the year. He has less to compete with for targets and Joe Flacco is taking his game to a new level. So there are options out there that could break through. It would be good to target one, get one on your team and hope for the best.

 #1  Calvin Johnson$30  Yr: 2012  TDs: 5  Yds: 1964  Recpts: 122DetroitBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Despite having just five touchdowns, Johnson produced one of the best seasons ever for a receiver. He nearly topped 2,000 yard, grabbing 122 passes for 1,964 yards. He scored just five times but had 11 100-yard games. He had 100-yard games eight of his last nine games. Johnson was consistent and nearly unstoppable every week despite the opposition double and triple teaming him in hopes to stop him. Johnson also had double-digit receptions six games and at least three receptions every game. Johnson has three straight 1,000-yard seasons and averages an amazing 1,823 yards per season the last two years. Johnson has double-digit touchdowns three of six seasons in the NFL. Johnson is a big receiver with top speed and the knack for making the big play. He will drop a few passes on occasion, but more than makes up for that because of his top playmaking ability. He is an amazing athlete, capable of making the circus catch. Johnson is the best receiver in the game right now.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Johnson is our top rated fantasy receiver once again. Don't get caught up in his scores from last season. It was a fluke as much as anything considering his past success in finding the end zone. We think he could see a dip in receptions and yards, though. It is inevitable after last season but he can still get about 100 receptions for 1,600 yards and double-digit scores. He is worth a first-round pick come draft day.

 #2  Julio Jones$27  Yr: 2012  TDs: 10  Yds: 1198  Recpts: 79AtlantaBye: 6 
 
Player News:
Jones improved on his rookie season but still lacked some consistency at times. He was a little boom or bust but his overall numbers were very good in the end. He had his first 1,000-yard season and scored 10 touchdowns. Jones had four 100-yard games and four games with fewer than 50 yards. Jones will be a top target in this pass-first offense for years to come. He is the top big-play threat for the Falcons passing game. 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 two seasons he can be a home-run threat and run away from defenders.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Jones has some competition for targets but he will post big numbers in this pass-first offense. You still have to worry about some inconsistency from him but he has huge weekly potential. He can build on last season and get around 1,400 yard and double-digit scores. He is a solid No. 1 for fantasy teams.

 #3  Josh Gordon$3  Yr: 2012  TDs: 5  Yds: 805  Recpts: 50ClevelandBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Gordon emerged his rookie season as the top receiver in the Browns' offense. He had 50 receptions for 805 yards and five touchdowns. He had a 100-yard game and three more with 80-plus yards, which was pretty impressive if you consider the problems with the Browns passing attack. Gordon has a good shot to be the No. 1 receiver for the Browns this season. He should get better with more seasoning. Gordon has good size and speed at the position. He makes big plays in the passing game. He could sharpen his route running skills, though, and will struggle with drops at times. He also has some character issues, which is a concern, but he seems to be maturing some from past years.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Gordon has a chance to take another step forward this season. He is a player on the rise and could be a low-end No. 2 fantasy receiver if the Browns get better quarterback play. A season with 70 or so receptions for 1,000 yards and eight touchdowns is a real possibility for Gordon.

 #4  Demaryius Thomas$27  Yr: 2012  TDs: 10  Yds: 1434  Recpts: 94DenverBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Thomas took his game to another level last season, emerging as one of the top receivers in the game. He quickly formed a good rapport with new quarterback Peyton Manning. Thomas set career highs across the board. He had nearly 100 receptions and 1,500 yards and scored double-digit touchdowns (10). Thomas had seven 100-yard games and at least two receptions every game. Thomas is the No. 1 receiver in the Broncos pass-first offense. 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.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Thomas is an elite fantasy receiver. He is a top-five option this season. It might be hard for him to match last season but he has the skill set to do it. The only issue is how much work will Wes Welker take from him. His receptions could be down some but we still like his yardage and touchdown potential. He can get 85 or so receptions for 1,300 yards and 11 touchdowns.

 #5  Dez Bryant$28  Yr: 2012  TDs: 0  Yds: 1382  Recpts: 92DallasBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Bryant finally had his breakout season, setting career highs across the board. He finally showed more consistency, having 50-plus yards all but three games. He had five 100-yard games and two games with double-digit receptions. Bryant had 12 touchdowns, including seven of his last eight games. He was a big-time red-zone target and the go-to option for the Cowboys in their passing game. Last season was the first time Bryant topped 1,000 yard as a pro. 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. His route running still needs some work but Bryant continues to make strides.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Bryant emerged as an elite fantasy receiver last season, a role he should serve for the next several seasons. He is the real deal. Bryant is capable of leading all fantasy receivers in scoring and is a top-five option for 2013. Bryant should be able to match or come close to last season, getting 90 or so receptions for 1,300 yards and 13 touchdowns.

 #6  Brandon Marshall$26  Yr: 2012  TDs: 11  Yds: 1508  Recpts: 118ChicagoBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Marshall certainly enjoyed being reunited with Jay Cutler last season, He had his best season as a pro, which is saying something. He finished with career highs in receptions, yards and touchdowns. Marshall was targeted nearly 200 times last season (192), getting plenty of weekly looks for the Bears. He had seven 100-yard games and less than 50 yards just three times all year. He also had double-digit receptions four times. Marshall has six straight 1,000-yard seasons. 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 was as good as it gets for fantasy receivers last season. He'll have a hard time matching that this year but he can come close as the top target in the offense once again. He'll get a ton of looks from Cutler. He can get 100 receptions again for 1,350 or so yards and 10 touchdowns. He is a top-five fantasy receiver.

 #7  A.J. Green$28  Yr: 2012  TDs: 11  Yds: 1350  Recpts: 97CincinnatiBye: 12 
 
Player News:
Green took his game to another level last season, setting career highs across the board in his second NFL season. Green had nearly 100 receptions and 1,400 yards while scoring 11 touchdowns. He had five 100-yard games and just three with fewer than 50 yards. He was very consistent getting a ton of weekly targets in the passing game. This trend should continue for Green. He has two 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 still hasn't reached his potential yet and should get better with more seasoning. It is scary to think how good Green could be in another season or two. He'll make a case for best receiver in the game.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Green has emerged as a big-time fantasy star. He is the real deal in an emerging offense. Green is a legit No. 1 for fantasy teams at receiver. He can improve on last season, getting more than 100 receptions for 1,500 or so yards and 13 touchdowns.

 #8  Antonio Brown$14  Yr: 2012  TDs: 0  Yds: 787  Recpts: 66PittsburghBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Brown missed three games because of injury, which marred his numbers. Otherwise, he would have had a similar season to his breakout year of the previous season. He finished with 66 receptions 787 yards in 13 games, averaging 61 yards per game (968 yards in a full season). Brown didn't have quite the big games of the previous season, though, failing to top 100 yards in any game. This was a surprise given his big-play ability. He did finish the season well, scoring touchdowns the last four games. He should be the No. 1 receiver for the Steelers this season with Mike Wallace gone. His targets could go up. Brown has top speed and solid hands. He is good at making plays after the catch, showing explosiveness for the big play. He does lack a little strength, but improved on that the last few seasons and continues to make strides in that area.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Brown took a bit of a step backwards last season but still has nice upside. He can turn it around this season in more of a marquee role for the Steelers. It wouldn't surprise to see him set career highs across the board, making him a solid No. 2 fantasy receiver. He can get 80 or so receptions for 1,100 yards and eight touchdowns.

 #9  Alshon Jeffery$2  Yr: 2012  TDs: 3  Yds: 367  Recpts: 24ChicagoBye: 8 
 
Player News:
A knee injury knock Jeffery out of some action his rookie but he wasn't a huge factor even in the 10 games he was active. He did top 50 yards three games but his season high in yards was 80. He didn't make a ton of big plays but did finish the season well, which was encouraging going forward. He had 50-plus yards two of the last four games. Jeffery is expected to get first shot at the starting job opposite Brandon Marshall. Jeffery is an athletic player with good leaping ability. He has the ability to be a top red-zone threat for the Bears. His route running needs work, though, and he lacks some speed. Jeffery needs to use size and athleticism to get open more than his speed.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Jeffery still isn't a polished product but making strides. He has a chance to take a big leap forward his second season. Marshall is the main target for the Bears but Jeffery can be second in targets this year, giving him some upside. He could get around 60 receptions for 750 yards and five touchdowns.

 #10  Keenan Allen$1  San DiegoBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Allen is a tall receiver with good strength and speed to make plays on the outside. He has a good chance to start from day one for the Chargers. 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. Allen does need to improve his hands some, though, and prove he doesn't have any injury issues, which caused him to slip in the draft.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Allen has fantasy upside and a good chance to start in an offense that throws often. He could be a help for fantasy teams on a spot start basis. He can get around 65 receptions for 800 yards and five touchdowns.

 #11  Pierre Garcon$17  Yr: 2012  TDs: 4  Yds: 633  Recpts: 44WashingtonBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Garcon battled injury his first season with the Redskins but did produce in the 10 games he played with his new team. He had two 100-yard games and finished with nearly 650 yards and four touchdowns. If he plays a full season, Garcon finishes with 70 receptions for 1,013 yards and six touchdowns. He was the top receiver in this offense when active. Garcon has never topped 1,000 yards but has four straight seasons with 760-plus yards. He is the No. 1 receiver for an emerging Redskins passing game. Even at this stage of his career, Garcon isn't a polished route runner, but has 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:  
You have to like his upside in this offense if he can play a full season. Garcon can do some damage with Robert Griffin throwing him passes. Consider him a low-end No. 2 receiver this season for fantasy teams. He can get 1,000 yards and seven or so touchdowns. He'll have some big games along the way because of his big-play ability.

 #12  Vincent Jackson$23  Yr: 2012  TDs: 0  Yds: 1384  Recpts: 72Tampa BayBye: 5 
 
Player News:
A move to Tampa led to a career season for Jackson, setting career highs in receptions and yards. He was just what the Bucs' offense was looking for when they signed him. Jackson had nearly 1,400-receiving yards, averaging 19.2 yards per reception. He had five 100-yard games and just three games with fewer than 50 yards. He was a consistent weekly threat for the Bucs. Jackson will continue to be the top target for the Bucs passing game. He has 1,000-yard seasons four of the last five years. Jackson is a big receiver with good leaping ability and plus speed. He isn't a polished route runner but has improved in this area through the years.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Jackson still lacks the receptions of some of the elite guys but his other numbers are just top notch. He'll get plenty of targets in this offense and have the chance to make a lot of big plays, something he excels. Consider Jackson a low-end No. 1 or top No. 2 for fantasy teams. He can finish with 75 or so receptions for 1,300 yards and near double-digit scores.

 #13  DeSean Jackson$13  Yr: 2012  TDs: 0  Yds: 700  Recpts: 45WashingtonBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Jackson had two broken ribs end his season early, missing the last five games. He performed pretty well before the injury, though, getting 700-receiving yards. Jackson has a 1,000-yard season if he can make it through a full year. Jackson had two 100-yard games and at least 50 yards all but three games. He was more consistent than recent seasons. Jackson hasn't topped 1,000 yards since 2010 but has at least 900 yards four of five seasons in the NFL. He gets a new offense this season that should fit his style pretty well. Jackson could get more targets this season with Chip Kelly running the show. 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. The Eagles use him a lot of ways to get him involved, including as a return man. Jackson probably isn't the No. 1 receiver for the Eagles with Jeremy Maclin emerging but he gets plenty of chances in the pass-first scheme.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Jackson is a good buy-low candidate in this new offense. He has some real upside, getting more chances to touch the ball and make plays. He can get 1,000 yards and eight or so scores. Draft accordingly. He is setup to be a solid No. 2 for fantasy teams.

 #14  Larry Fitzgerald$21  Yr: 2012  TDs: 4  Yds: 798  Recpts: 71ArizonaBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Inconsistent quarterback play once again doomed Fitzgerald last season. He had his worst season as a pro, catching just 70 passes for 798 yards and four touchdowns. He had just two 100-yard games and fewer than 50 yards eight times. He had fewer than 40 yards six of his last seven games. Fitzgerald had five straight 1,000-yard seasons before last year. He turns 30 before the start of the season, so he has plenty left in the tank. If he gets better quarterback play, which he should, expect Fitzgerald to rebound as the Cardinals No. 1 target in the passing game. 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 remains an elite fantasy receiver and is a good buy-low candidate after last season. Don't discount on because of last year. He can still be a fantasy force and is likely going to have a lot to prove this season. Expect a rebound but consider him a top No. 2 at this point. He does come with some risk after last year. Look for a season with around 85 receptions for 1,100 yards and eight or so touchdowns.

 #15  Victor Cruz$20  Yr: 2012  TDs: 10  Yds: 1092  Recpts: 86New York GiantsBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Cruz had his second straight 1,000-yard season. Some looked at his year as kind of a down season compared to his rookie year but he set career highs in receptions (86) and touchdowns (10), so Cruz had another fine season. Cruz had five 100-yard games and at least two catches in every game. He did have six games with fewer than 50 yards, though, but the Giants passing attack really struggled at times last season, leading to the down games for Cruz. He will be a big part of this passing game for years to come. Cruz is a big-play threat with the ball in his hands. Cruz isn't a huge target but runs routes well for a young player and has plus hands. He can take a short pass and make it a big play in a hurry.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Cruz is a solid low-end No. 1 fantasy receiver. He is just outside that elite group of receivers. His numbers can improve from last season, especially if you consider how bad the Giants threw the ball at times in 2012. Cruz can get around 90 receptions for 1,300 or so yards and double-digit scores.

 #16  Eric Decker$15  Yr: 2012  TDs: 0  Yds: 1064  Recpts: 85New York JetsBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Decker had a breakout season with Peyton Manning throwing him passes. He set career highs across the board, topping 1,000 yards and scoring double-digit touchdowns. Decker was among the league leaders in touchdowns with 13. Decker had four games with multiple touchdowns. He also had two 100-yard games. Decker should continue to be a big part of the offense and a top red-zone threat. The addition of Wes Welker could cut down on some of his targets, though, leading to a little less production for Decker. Decker has good size (6-3) and strength, giving him the ability to stretch the field. His lack of top speed holds him back a little but he has made plays even while lacking that elite speed. He is a playmaker, especially in the red zone.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Decker could get fewer receptions and his yards might go down some but you still have to love his upside in this offense. He can get 1,000 yards once again while scoring near double-digit scores. Decker is a top No. 2 for fantasy teams.

 #17  Andre Johnson$20  Yr: 2012  TDs: 4  Yds: 1598  Recpts: 112HoustonBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Johnson rebounded from an injury-plagued season with maybe his best as a pro. He scored just four touchdowns but set a career high in receiving yards (1,598) and caught 112 passes, which was the second highest total of his career. Johnson proved to still have plenty left in the tank, once again leading the Texans in receiving. Johnson had six 100-yard games, including a 273-yard performance in Week 11. He did have three games with fewer than 50 yards, though, showing he was a little inconsistent at times, which isn't a big surprise in a more run-first offense. Johnson has 1,000-yard seasons four of his last five. He also has more than 100 receptions three of those seasons. Johnson turns 32 before the season starts but should continue to play at a high level. Last season proved he hasn't started to fade just yet. Johnson is the go-to option in the Texans' offense. Johnson is the complete package at receiver. He can run, but also has great size. Johnson isn't afraid to make the tough catch and has the speed to stretch the field to make big plays.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Johnson has yet to score double-digit touchdowns in his career, which hurts his fantasy value. But the rest of his numbers are very good. He is good for around 100 receptions for 1,300 or so yards and six or seven touchdowns. He is a low-end No. 1 fantasy receiver, mainly because of his mediocre touchdown numbers.

 #18  Roddy White$25  Yr: 2012  TDs: 7  Yds: 1351  Recpts: 92AtlantaBye: 6 
 
Player News:
White had his usual big season despite Julio Jones getting more chances for the Falcons. White was still the more consistent threat from week to week for the Falcons. White had seven 100-yard games and topped 1,300 yards for the third time in five seasons. White had four games with fewer than 50 yards but at least three receptions in all but a game. White has six straight seasons with 1,100-plus yards. Needless to say, White has been a consistent factor in the Falcons' offense, an offense that throws a lot more often these days. Even with Jones around, White is the top target in the passing game for Atlanta. White is a big, physical receiver with good speed and plus hands. He can make plays with his legs, but also isn't afraid to make the tough catch in traffic. White is the complete package at receiver.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Some were worried about Jones stealing work from White last season but that wasn't the case. His receptions were down a little but his numbers remained top notch across the board. Expect more of the same this year, making him a legit No. 1 fantasy receiver. The only issue with White is touchdowns, having double-digit scores just twice. He scored seven last season and has 15 the last two seasons. White should get around 100 receptions for 1,300 yards and near double-digit scores.

 #19  T Y Hilton$7  Yr: 2012  TDs: 0  Yds: 861  Recpts: 50IndianapolisBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Hilton had a big rookie season, serving as the top deep threat for the Colts. He had nearly 900 yards and scored seven touchdowns. He had five 100-yard games, showing big-play ability throughout the season. He averaged an impressive 17.2 yards per receptions. Hilton is going to be a big part of this pass-first offense for years to come. He should be the starter from day one this season for the Colts. Hilton is a small receiver that lacks some strength and size, but proved he could produce in this league last season. He might need to bulk up some to really excel as a starter, though. Hilton is an explosive player with big-play ability. Hilton also is a good return man and should continue to get chances on special teams after scoring a punt return touchdown last season.

Fantasy Outlook: Hot
Hilton can improve on his rookie season. He has a chance for a 1,000-yard season and eight or so touchdowns in this explosive offense. He is a low-end No. 2 or top No. 3 in this offense. He is an improving player on the rise.

 #20  Jordy Nelson$14  Yr: 2012  TDs: 7  Yds: 745  Recpts: 49Green BayBye: 4 
 
Player News:
Nelson saw a big dip in production from his previous season. He missed some time because of injury (four games) but was more hit or miss in the offense with some other options emerging in the passing game. But even with that said, he still had 745 yards and seven scores in 12 games. He gets close to 1,000 yards and double-digit scores if he plays a full year. Nelson will be a starter from day one this year and a big part of the passing game once again. He has 22 touchdowns the last two seasons, serving as a top red-zone target 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: Injury Concern
Some are down on Nelson, but we still like his upside as long as he can stay healthy. He can produce like a low-end No. 1 in this offense. He'll disappear on occasion but has high touchdown potential and the ability for the huge yardage game. We expect around 1,000 yards and double-digit touchdowns.

 #21  Michael Crabtree Yr: 2012  TDs: 9  Yds: 1105  Recpts: 85San FranciscoBye: 9 
 
Player News:
The addition of quarterback Colin Kaepernick to the lineup was just the thing to get Crabtree's career going in the right direction. He posted career bests across the board, posting big numbers late in the season. He had 100-yard games three of his last five and had two 100-yard games during the 49ers Super Bowl run. Crabtree had his first 1,000-yard season and topped 80 receptions for the first time. He was the go-to target in an explosive passing attack. Crabtree finally lived up to his potential last season. Crabtree is a pretty polished product despite his young age. Crabtree has plus hands, runs solid routes and is a playmaker. He doesn't have elite speed, but enough to get the job done. Unfortunately, Crabtree suffered a torn Achilles' tendon before the start of the season and is expected to miss much of the year - if not all of it.

Fantasy Outlook: Injury Concern
Crabtree was setup for a career season but now seems likely to miss the entire year because of the injury. He is worth a late-round look if you have the roster space but we think a receiver returning from this type of injury in six months is a bit of a stretch.

 #22  Wes Welker$15  Yr: 2012  TDs: 0  Yds: 1354  Recpts: 118DenverBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Welker had another huge season last year, notching 118 receptions. He also topped 1,300 yards and scored six touchdowns. Welker had five 100-yard games and four with double-digit receptions. Welker has more than 100 receptions and 1,000 yards five of six seasons. He continues to be the go-to target for Tom Brady in the Patriots passing game. Welker remains the top possession receiver in the game and Brady's favorite safety valve. Welker is a small, speedy receiver with plus hands and the ability to make plays in the open field. He is 32 years old but hasn't shown many signs of decline the last few seasons.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Welker isn't a top No. 1 receiver outside of PPR leagues, but just outside of those top options. Remember, he has never had double-digit touchdowns in a season. But you can pretty much pencil him in for 100-plus receptions and 1,000 yards. He is about as sure of a thing as it gets when it comes to fantasy options. It wouldn't be a surprise to see his numbers dip a little this season but don't expect a sharp decline by any means.

 #23  Randall Cobb$21  Yr: 2012  TDs: 0  Yds: 954  Recpts: 80Green BayBye: 4 
 
Player News:
Cobb had a breakout season as a receiver, getting much more consistent work in the passing game. He was the starter much of the season for the Packers and finished with an impressive 80 receptions for 954 yards and eight touchdowns. He also sat out the last game of the season because of an ankle injury, so he likely hits the 1,000-yard mark for the first time in his career if he plays a full season. Cobb had three 100-yard games and 10 of 15 games with 50-plus yards. He was a consistent factor in the passing game and should be a huge part of the offense going forward. His numbers should get better as he gets more comfortable with Aaron Rodgers. Cobb isn't a big receiver, but runs solid routes and makes plays in space. He does well in multiple receiver sets, which the Packers run often. Cobb has plus hands and just seems to make plays.

Fantasy Outlook: Hot
Cobb might be a little hit or miss some weeks because the Packers have a lot of weapons in the passing game but his upside is very high. He can improve on last season, making him a low-end No. 1 or top No. 2 for fantasy teams. Cobb can get around 90 receptions for 1,100 yards and nine scores.

 #24  Marques Colston$14  Yr: 2012  TDs: 10  Yds: 1154  Recpts: 83New OrleansBye: 7 
 
Player News:
Colston had his fourth straight 1,000-yard season. He continues to produce good numbers as the No. 1 receiver in the Saints pass-first offense. Colston had three 100-yard games and at least 50 yards all but five games. He had at least three receptions every game. Colston has 1,000-yard seasons all but one during his seven-year NFL career. Colston does have some injury concerns because of past knee issues but he has played at least 14 games the last four seasons. Colston is a big target with plus speed. He still drops the occasional pass, but runs good routes and will make the tough catch in traffic. The Saints are a pass-first team that spreads the ball to a host of receivers, but Colston is a good bet to lead the receivers in targets as their No. 1 receiver.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Colston isn't quite an elite fantasy receiver, but just outside that group. His reception totals aren't among the top guys, but he will top 1,000 yards and near double-digit touchdowns. He is a serviceable No. 1 for fantasy teams. We don't see a decline just yet.

 #25  Torrey Smith$10  Yr: 2012  TDs: 8  Yds: 855  Recpts: 49BaltimoreBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Smith improved some on his rookie season but not by much. His numbers were very similar to his rookie year, and he continued his erratic production. Smith had two 100-yard games but six games with fewer than 40 yards. He was boom or bust many weeks. In two seasons, Smith averages 50 receptions for 848 yards and eight touchdowns. He will be the clear No. 1 receiver in Baltimore now, though, with Anquan Boldin gone. This could lead to some more targets for Smith. He 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. Smith also could stand to get a little stronger to get off the line better. He has pretty good hands, though, and a knack for the spectacular play.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Smith is a player on the rise. He can get 1,000 yards and around double-digit touchdowns in his third season, a year many receivers take a big jump forward. It still wouldn't surprise to see him disappear a few weeks but he should be a little more consistent this season. Smith can be a more than dependable No. 2 fantasy receiver in 2013.

 #26  Kendall Wright$2  Yr: 2012  TDs: 4  Yds: 626  Recpts: 64TennesseeBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Wright had a productive rookie season, getting a chance to start some because of injury. He made some big plays but was a little up and down as expected. Wright had just two games with 70-plus yards but did have a couple receptions all but one game. It also didn't help Wright that the quarterback play for the Titans was all over the place. His production should get better with more consistent quarterback play. Wright will be a big part of the offense, serving as the slot receiver for the Titans this season. He'll get plenty of work even if he isn't starting. 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. Wright has the tolls to be a dynamic player. He still lacks some size, though. He has a little trouble getting off the line as corners try to get physical with him.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Wright will improve some on last season but don't expect huge numbers in this offense. A season with around 75 receptions for 750 yards and five or so touchdowns seems about right for Wright. He is a solid reserve option for fantasy teams.

 #27  Mike Wallace$15  Yr: 2012  TDs: 8  Yds: 836  Recpts: 64MiamiBye: 6 
 
Player News:
Wallace had the most targets of his career last season (119) but his numbers were down compared to past seasons - if that makes any sense. He didn't even have 900-receiving yards, breaking a streak of two straight seasons with 1,000 yards. Wallace had just two 100-yard games last year but did score eight touchdowns. He was still a consistent red-zone target. Over the past three seasons, Wallace averages 65 receptions for 1,095 yards and nine touchdowns. He heads to Miami this season to take over as their No. 1 receiver. Wallace should fill the role well but does move to a passing attack that probably isn't quite as prolific as the Steelers. Wallace has great speed and the ability to make a big play every time the ball is in his hands (averages 17.2 yards per catch for his career). His route running still isn't top notch but better. Wallace also has good hands and a knack for making the big play.

Fantasy Outlook:  
A move to Miami might hurt his numbers a bit but probably not much. He doesn't get the receptions of an elite receiver but will have nice yardage and touchdown totals. Consider him a low-end No. 1 or top No. 2 for fantasy teams. He can get around 75 receptions for 1,100 yards and nine touchdowns with his new team.

 #28  Julian Edelman Yr: 2012  TDs: 0  Yds: 235  Recpts: 21New EnglandBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Edelman actually got about as much time on defense as he did offense last year, playing some cornerback for the Patriots because of injury. He had just four receptions as a receiver, giving him 11 the last two years. He had 37 receptions as a rookie but has gotten little playing time at receiver since. Edelman is a solid return man, though, averaging more than 10 yards per punt every season in his career. He has a punt return for a touchdown in each of the last two seasons. He should continue to play a similar role for the Patriots this season, getting most of his work on special teams and as a deep reserve at receiver. Edelman is a solid possession receiver. He is a small target, but has good speed and hands. He does well on crossing routes and makings plays after the catch.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Edelman isn't worth a roster spot unless injury hits the Patriots' receiving unit. He won't get enough targets in his current role to post numbers to help fantasy teams.

 #29  Michael Floyd$2  Yr: 2012  TDs: 2  Yds: 562  Recpts: 45ArizonaBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Floyd didn't have a reception his first two games of his rookie season but worked his way into a much bigger role as the season progressed. He made progress, eventually having his best game of the season the last week. He caught eight passes for 166 yards and a touchdown in Week 17. It was a good finish for Floyd, who had more than 50 yards just twice all season. Floyd has a chance to be the starter from day one this season if he has a strong offseason and preseason. The Cardinals don't have much of a passing game but it should be improved from last season, which bodes well for Floyd. He has good size and speed at receiver. Floyd runs good routes and looks the part of an NFL receiver. Floyd also has good hands and the knack for the big play. He doesn't have game-changing speed, though, which seemed to hold him back some last season.

Fantasy Outlook: Sleeper
Floyd can improve on last season but still doesn't seem like a great fantasy option in a below average passing attack. He seems more like reserve material for fantasy teams. Floyd can get about 65 receptions for around 800 yards and five or so touchdowns.

 #30  Percy Harvin$1  Yr: 2012  TDs: 1  Yds: 677  Recpts: 62SeattleBye: 12 
 
Player News:
Harvin was traded to the Seahawks this offseason and will take over a starting spot with his new team. He moves to a better offense and quarterback situation, so Harvin seems setup for a nice rebound season after battling injury with the Vikings last season. Harvin is a top playmaker with the ball in his hands. He has great speed and moves in the open field. He lacks some size, but plays bigger than his size, not shying away from contact over the middle and in the red zone. Migraines have been an issue for Harvin but he seems to be over those issues for now.

Fantasy Outlook: Injury Concern
Harvin can be a low-end No. 1 fantasy receiver in this offense. He has huge total yardage potential and is always capable of the big game. We think a career season is in store for Harvin in 2013. He can get 1,400 total yards and near double-digit scores.

 #31  Sammy Watkins ---Bye:  
 
 #32  Anquan Boldin$3  Yr: 2012  TDs: 4  Yds: 921  Recpts: 65San FranciscoBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Boldin had his best season with the Ravens last year, finishing with 65 receptions for 921 yards and four touchdowns in 15 games. All three were season highs for him in his three years with the Ravens. He did a lot of damage in the Ravens Super Bowl run, though, having two 100-yard games in four games. He had 22 receptions for 380 yards and four touchdowns during the playoffs. Boldin heads to a new team this season, though, getting dealt to the 49ers. He'll serve as the top possession receiver in this offense, an emerging offense. Boldin is a big, strong receiver. He isn't a speed demon, but runs good routes and has solid hands. He is 32 years old, but has taken a lot of punishment through the years, which is a concern going forward. How much does he have left?

Fantasy Outlook:  
Boldin won't get you many touchdowns, but will finish with decent reception and yardage totals. Just don't overvalue him based on past seasons. He is going to be good for about 60 catches for 900 yards and five or so touchdowns, making him a No. 3 fantasy receiver.

 #33  Golden Tate$4  Yr: 2012  TDs: 0  Yds: 688  Recpts: 45DetroitBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Tate had his best season to date, catching 45 passes for 688 yards and seven touchdowns. An improved passing game was just the thing to get Tate going. He had his only 100-yard game of the regular season the last week of the year but also had a 100-yard showing the playoffs, giving him 100-yard games two of his last three to end his season. Tate should be the No. 3 receiver for the Seahawks this season and get a decent amount of chances in a suddenly good passing attack. He has 80 receptions the past two seasons but topped 500 yards just once in three seasons. 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 slot.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Tate is gaining value but having to compete with Percy Harvin for targets now won't help his production too much. He should be about the same as last season, having some big games and some quiet showings along the way. Tate could get 40 or 50 catches for 600 yard and a few scores. Tate has some value as a reserve player for fantasy teams but that is about it.

 #34  Cecil Shorts III$8  Yr: 2012  TDs: 7  Yds: 979  Recpts: 55JacksonvilleBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Shorts was the most consistent receiver for the Jaguars last season, having a surprisingly very good rookie season. He just missed the 1,000-yard mark (21 yards short) and had four 100-yard games. And he missed two games because of injury, so he likely hits that 1,000-yard mark easy if he plays a full season. Shorts was impressive because the Jaguars had very poor quarterback play much of the season. He is going to be a big part of this offense going forward, starting alongside Justin Blackmon. Shorts was a big-play threat last season, averaging nearly 18 yards per reception. He 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 continues to get better each season, which is encouraging for his future.

Fantasy Outlook: Hot
Shorts seems setup for his first 1,000-yard season. He was very consistent last season once he started getting the work, so we don't see a dip in production from him, especially if you consider the offense should be better. Shorts is worth a look as a low-end No. 2 or solid No. 3 fantasy receiver. He can finish with around 70 receptions for 1,000 yards and seven touchdowns.

 #35  James Jones$12  Yr: 2012  TDs: 14  Yds: 784  Recpts: 64OaklandBye: 7 
 
Player News:
Jones had a career year last season, posting career highs in receptions, yards and touchdowns. He got more playing time and took advantage of his chances. Jones was a touchdown machine, scoring 14 times. He had scores all but seven games. Jones had just one 100-yard game but multiple receptions all but a game. Jones should continue to get plenty of work this season, getting reps as a starter and No. 3 receiver in the Packers pass-first offense. Jones has at least 600 yards four of six seasons in the NFL. Jones has decent quickness, but runs good routes and has above-average hands. He also does well in making the tough catch, but he will drop some passes.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Jones is going to have a hard time repeating his touchdown total of last season, but he can improve his reception and yardage totals. A season with 70 receptions for 850 yards and eight touchdowns seems realistic for Jones. He is a solid No. 3 for fantasy teams.

 #36  Greg Jennings$8  Yr: 2012  TDs: 4  Yds: 366  Recpts: 36MinnesotaBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Jennings played half the season because of injury but produced alright when playing. He had 366 yards and four touchdowns in eight games. He finishes with 72 receptions for 732 yards and eight touchdowns if he plays a full season. His numbers were down compared to last year, mainly because of other emerging players in the Packers passing game. Jennings turns 30 before the start of the season, so he still has some good years left of playing at a high level. He has 1,000-yard seasons three of his last five and double-digit scores two times in seven seasons. Jennings remains a solid No. 1 but isn't in that elite category at receiver. Jennings is one of the top big-play threats in the game, averaging 15.4 yards per reception for his career. Jennings has top speed to stretch the field on deep passes and the ability turn a short reception into a big play. Jennings will drop the occasional pass, but has gotten better with this over the years.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Jennings is overrated a little. He can produce big at times but will also be quiet other weeks. He has never had more than 80 receptions in a season or more than 1,300-receiving yards. He usually is good for some scores, though, and some big games along the way. Consider him a solid No. 2 for fantasy teams, getting 70 or so receptions for around 1,000 yards and eight touchdowns.

 #37  Tavon Austin$5  St LouisBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Austin is a dynamic playmaker, making him a great fit for the Rams, a team looking for help in the passing game. Austin has elite speed, plus hands and the ability to turn a short pass into a huge play. He just makes plays. He'll play out of the slot for the Rams. Austin also will be a big help for the special teams, getting chances as both a punt and kick returner. Austin is a very small receiver, though, and lacks some strength. These are the only real knocks against him.

Fantasy Outlook: Sleeper
Austin has nice total yardage potential. He'll get plenty of chances to touch the ball in this offense. He should get around 1,000 total yards and six or so touchdowns. Austin can finish with around 80 or so receptions.

 #38  Jeremy Maclin Yr: 2012  TDs: 7  Yds: 857  Recpts: 69PhiladelphiaBye: 12 
 
Player News:
Maclin didn't have quite the season as expected last year. He missed time because of injury once again and finished shy of 1,000 yards. He has yet to top 1,000 yards in a season since turning pro. He did 857-receiving yards, though, and score seven touchdowns. Maclin had three 100-yard games, including two his last four games of the season. Maclin's numbers suffered some last year because of erratic quarterback play. A new offense is in place this season and should produce big numbers in the passing game, which should be a plus for Maclin. He could get his most targets to date. Maclin is a big-play receiver for the Eagles. 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. He will continue to start and should serve as a top option in the Eagles pass-first offense.

Fantasy Outlook: Injury Concern
Maclin tore his ACL in training camp and is done for the year. It is a shame to see him get hurt in what could have been his best season to date.

 #39  Hakeem Nicks$12  Yr: 2012  TDs: 3  Yds: 692  Recpts: 53IndianapolisBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Nicks had some injury issues last season and eventually needed minor need surgery. Nicks missed three games because of injury and finished with nearly 700-receiving yards and 53 receptions. His numbers were down as the Giants passing attack had their struggles last season. Nicks had just one 100-yard game, which came in Week 2. Nicks back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons before last year. He remains a big part of the Giants passing game, especially at age 25. He is in the prime of his career. Nicks is a big target with great hands and athletic ability. Nicks is a top big-play threat because of his speed and size. Nicks has been slowed by injuries each of the last two seasons, but played through pain much of the time.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Nicks is a bit of an injury risk after the past two seasons but his upside is high. You have to like his chances to rebound. He can be a solid No. 1 if all is going well for him. Nicks can get around 80 receptions for 1,100 yards and eight touchdowns. He is a good guy to target after the elite guys are gone.

 #40  Brian Hartline$2  Yr: 2012  TDs: 1  Yds: 1083  Recpts: 74MiamiBye: 6 
 
Player News:
Hartline took his game to a new level last season, hitting the 1,000-yard mark. His previous career high was 615 yards, so he took a big step forward last season in the Dolphins new offense. Hartline had a 253-yard game in Week 4, which padded his stats, but had two other 100-yard games besides that. He did disappear a few weeks but his overall production was pretty steady, having 50-plus yards nine of 16 games. Hartline had multiple receptions all but two games. He'll continue to start in the offense but will be the No. 2 behind Mike Wallace this season. The addition of Wallace could open things up for Hartline some, though, leading to more open space for him. 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 six touchdowns in four seasons, so his lack of scores hurts his fantasy value. But he has good reception and yardage potential in an emerging passing game. Hartline can get around 70 receptions again for 1,000 yards and five touchdowns. He is a low-end No. 2 or No. 3 fantasy receiver. Don't totally ignore him because of his lack of touchdowns in the past.

 #41  Cordarrelle Patterson$2  MinnesotaBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Patterson gives the Vikings a big-time deep threat in the passing game. He is a game changer at receiver and should be the starter from day one his rookie season. Patterson has a good build for the receiver position and does a great job of stretching the field. He also is good at making a short pass into a big play because of his acceleration. Patterson isn't a great route runner yet, though, and had a few issues with drops in college.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Patterson has a ton of ability but playing with the Vikings doesn't help his fantasy value. If he were in a better offense, his value would be much higher. But for now, consider him a reserve and spot starter for fantasy teams. He could get around 60 receptions for 900 yards and five touchdowns.

 #42  Riley Cooper$1  Yr: 2012  TDs: 0  Yds: 248  Recpts: 23PhiladelphiaBye: 12 
 
Player News:
A collarbone injury knocked Cooper out of games early in the season but he was still able to nab a career-high 23 receptions in 11 games. He topped 50 yards just once but had multiple receptions seven of 11 games. Cooper has a chance to start this season because of the injury to Jeremy Maclin. Cooper has good size and seems a nice fit for the slot. He isn't a speed burner, but has solid hands and can make plays after the catch as evident by his 14.8 yards per reception. He probably doesn't have the breakaway speed to be an ideal starter, though. Cooper needs to continue to sharpen his route running if he hopes to play a bigger role in the offense.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Cooper is worth a late-round look if he gets the starting job in Philadelphia, which is very possible. We wouldn't expect huge numbers but he could get 800 or so yards and six touchdowns.

 #43  Rueben Randle$1  Yr: 2012  TDs: 0  Yds: 298  Recpts: 19New York GiantsBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Randle didn't get many chance his rookie season but did make some big plays with his 19 receptions. He had three games with 50-plus yards and scored three touchdowns. He averaged nearly 16 yards per reception, showing his big-play ability. The No. 3 receiver job is Randle's to lose this season. And the Giants have produced some pretty good numbers for their No. 3 receiver in past seasons, so this is encouraging for Randle. He has very good size and speed. Randle is a tough cover at 6-4. Randle is a big-play threat that has solid hands. He needs some work on his route running, though, and could lack some consistency once again this season.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Randle could have some big games throughout the year but we expect some inconsistency. He has two elite receivers ahead of him on the depth chart, which will limit him some. Even with that said, the Giants throw often so Randle will get some targets. He can get 40 receptions for 600 or so yards and five scores, making him worth a look as a reserve.

 #44  Steve Smith$14  Yr: 2012  TDs: 4  Yds: 1174  Recpts: 73BaltimoreBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Smith had his second straight 1,000-yard season, finishing with similar numbers to his first season with quarterback Cam Newton. Smith had five 100-yard games. He didn't have many down weeks, either, getting fewer than 50 yards four times. The only negative for Smith last season was a lack of scores, getting just four touchdowns. He has seven or fewer scores six straight seasons. Smith has double-digit touchdowns just once his entire career. Even at age 34, Smith remains one of the top big-play threats in the NFL. He hasn't shown much signs of slowing down just yet. He remains a dependable starter in an emerging offense with big-play ability. Smith is a small target, but has great hands and surprising strength. He just makes plays with the ball in his hands.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Smith isn't an elite fantasy option but a solid No. 2 for fantasy teams. His lack of scores hurts his value. He is good for 1,000 yards and 70 or so receptions. Just expect about five or so touchdowns.

 #45  Mike Williams$4  Yr: 2012  TDs: 9  Yds: 996  Recpts: 63BuffaloBye: 12 
 
Player News:
Williams had his best season since his rookie year. He was a much more consistent factor in the offense and missed hitting that 1,000-yard mark but just four yards. He was a top red-zone factor once again, scoring nine times. He scored touchdowns four of his last five games to end the season. Williams had three 100-yard games but six of 16 games with fewer than 50 yards. He was a little boom or bust at times but at least a factor each week in the offense. He'll start from day one across from Vincent Jackson this season. Williams has good size and strength, and does well in making plays downfield. He is an explosive player and top red-zone threat because of his size. He needs to improve his consistency going forward but made strides in that area last season, which is encouraging.

Fantasy Outlook:  
More consistent quarterback play would help his numbers, but he still has pretty good value for fantasy teams. Williams could hit that 1,000-yard mark this season. We like for him to get a little better. It wouldn't surprise to see him get 75 receptions for near 1,000 yards and eight or so scores. He is a low-end No. 2 or top No. 3 for fantasy teams.

 #46  Steve Johnson$8  Yr: 2012  TDs: 6  Yds: 1046  Recpts: 79BuffaloBye: 12 
 
Player News:
Johnson had his third straight 1,000-yard season, having three very similar seasons the last three years. He didn't have a 100-yard game until Week 12 last season, but had three the last six games. He had another very steady season as the Bills No. 1 receiver. He averages 79 receptions for 1,041 yards and eight touchdowns the last three seasons. Johnson has decent size for the receiver spot. He runs well, makes the tough stretch and is a big-play threat. He does struggle with some key drops at times, but has shown improvement in that area the last few seasons.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Johnson isn't an off the charts fantasy receiver but consistent option. He is a top No. 2 for the coming season. His reception and yardage totals just keep him from being a No. 1. Johnson is good for another 1,000-yard, eight-touchdown season.

 #47  Miles Austin$4  Yr: 2012  TDs: 6  Yds: 943  Recpts: 66DallasBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Austin saw a dip in production with Dez Bryant emerging as the go-to option in the Cowboys passing game. Austin still isn't have a bad season but failed to top 1,000 yards for the second straight year. He had two 100-yards but also had seven games with fewer than 50 yards. Austin was a little inconsistent, getting a few less targets compared to past year. Austin remains a big part of the passing game, though, and will continue to start and get his weekly chances for the Cowboys. Austin is a big-play threat with the ball in his hands. He is a tall, lean receiver with plus speed. Austin still isn't quite as polished as a route runner as some of the elite receivers, but isn't too far behind those guys anymore.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Austin isn't the top option anymore but still a decent fantasy receiver. He can help as a low-end No. 2 or 3 fantasy receiver. He is capable of the big game in this offense. Look for a season with around 70 receptions for 1,000 yards and seven touchdowns.

 #48  Lance Moore$4  Yr: 2012  TDs: 0  Yds: 1041  Recpts: 65PittsburghBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Moore had his first 1,000-yard season as a pro last year. He had a big season, breaking more big plays than previous seasons. He averaged 16 yards per reception, which was a career high (previous career high was 12.1). Moore had four 100-yard games and more than 50 yards all but five games. He was a consistent factor in the offense. His six touchdowns was his lowest total since 2009, though. He has eight or more touchdowns three of the last five seasons. Moore is a great fit for the No. 3 receiver spot for the Saints, a role he should continue to fill this season. Moore is a consistent, dependable receiver in the Saints pass-first offense. Moore isn't a big receiver, but is very fast and has good hands. He makes plays with the ball in his hands and seems to have a knack for finding the end zone despite his lower touchdown totals last season.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Moore gets overlooked at times but he is a legit low-end No. 2 or No. 3 for fantasy teams. He might have a hard time getting 1,000 yards again but is good for around 60 catches for 900 or so yards and eight touchdowns.

 #49  Dwayne Bowe$17  Yr: 2012  TDs: 3  Yds: 801  Recpts: 59Kansas CityBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Bowe dealt with terrible quarterback play and missed time because of injury but still managed 801-receiving yards and three touchdowns in 13 games. He still played pretty well despite some things stacked against him. Bowe had two 100-yard games and just three games with fewer than 50 yards. He was pretty consistent much of the year. He gets a legit quarterback in Alex Smith throwing him passes this year and a new offense that should be pass friendly. Bowe seems setup for a big season. Bowe has 1,000-yard seasons three of his last five. Bowe is a big, strong receiver that isn't afraid to make the tough catch. He also is a load to bring down in the space because of his size and elusiveness. Bowe still struggles with some drops, lacking concentration at times.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Bowe has huge upside for this coming season. He should get plenty of targets in a much better passing game. Consider him a low-end No. 1 or top No. 2 for fantasy teams. He can get 85 receptions for 1,200 yards and nine touchdowns.

 #50  Justin Blackmon$4  Yr: 2012  TDs: 5  Yds: 865  Recpts: 64JacksonvilleBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Blackmon had a decent rookie season. He had some big moments but disappeared in other games. Blackmon had just one game that he topped 100 yards but that was a monster performance in Week 11, catching seven passes for 236 yards. That game really padded his stats. But the good news is Blackmon finished the season well, catching at least six passes each of the last four games. The Jaguars got better quarterback play late in the season, which coincided with better production from Blackmon. He'll be the No. 1 receiver for the Jaguars once again this season, looking to take a step forward from his rookie season. Blackmon is the complete package at receiver. He is very athletic and does a great job of going after the ball. He isn't a speed burner but a strong receiver with plus hands. He lacked some consistency his rookie year but should get better in that area with more seasoning.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Blackmon can take some steps forward this season and produce better for fantasy teams. He seems setup for his first 1,000-yard season and eight or so touchdowns. He can be a solid No. 2 for fantasy teams. Much will depend on the quarterback situation in Jacksonville but it should be better than last season, which should help Blackmon.

 #51  Aaron Dobson$1  New EnglandBye: 10 
 
Player News:
The Patriots hoped to have found a starter at receiver for years to come in Dobson. He'll get his chance to start from day one but will need to show the team he is ready for that role in camp and preseason action. Dobson is a bit raw and didn't face top teams in college, so he has some question marks. But he is a great athlete that has a knack for the big play and finding the end zone. He has great size for the position and uses his great athletic ability to make plays.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Dobson is no sure thing because he is very raw and moves to a complex offense but it seems the Patriots think he can adjust, which is something to consider. He is worth a late-round pick because of the offense he plays, especially if he starts. We are looking for a season with around 50 receptions for 700 yards and five or so scores. His future seems brighter down the road.

 #52  Kenbrell Thompkins$2  New EnglandBye: 10 
 
 #53  Marvin Jones Yr: 2012  TDs: 1  Yds: 201  Recpts: 18CincinnatiBye: 12 
 
Player News:
Jones got a little work in a reserve role his rookie season, catching 18 passes in 11 games. He got most of his work late in the season in an expanded role and had 45 or more yards three of the last four games. He was given more chances and made some plays. He'll be in the mix for the No. 3 receiver job from day one this season. Jones is a possession receiver and a good fit for the slot. He 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 should get more work this season but probably isn't going to be a huge fantasy factor just yet. He seems setup to about double his work, catching around 40 passes for 400 yards and a few scores. He might be worth a late look in PPR formats.

 #54  DeAndre Hopkins$2  HoustonBye: 8 
 
Player News:
The Texans hope to have finally found their starter opposite Andre Johnson. Hopkins is expected to fill that role from day one his rookie season. Hopkins is a good fit for the starter's job. He has good size and strength for the position, and is a good route runner for a young receiver. Hopkins does a good job of making the tough catch. He has good strength but will need to show he can play more physical in the NFL. He certainly has the ability.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Hopkins has some upside for the big game his rookie season. He'll be a little hit or miss with Johnson getting most of the targets but could be worth some spot starts for fantasy teams. He can get around 65 receptions for 900 yards and five touchdowns.

 #55  Kenny Britt$6  Yr: 2012  TDs: 4  Yds: 589  Recpts: 45St LouisBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Britt played about all season but didn't look 100 percent recovered from his torn ACL from the previous season. Britt lacked explosion last season and it showed in his play, topping 100 yards just once all year. He had just 589 yards in 14 games. Britt also wasn't helped by erratic quarterback play, which has impacted his career to date with the Titans. Britt has yet to top 800 yard in any season. He does have at least 40 receptions three of four seasons, though. He is the most talented receiver for the Titans and is in a contract year, so expect him to do all he can to take that next step forward this season. Britt is a big target that runs good routes and is capable of making a big-play in a hurry because of his top speed. He can take it to another level in a hurry. Britt will struggle with drops at times, but his concentration seems to be improving in this area. Britt has issues off the field and is another strike away from facing a long suspension.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Britt has off-the-field concerns but will produce as long as he stays out of trouble and gets back to full strength. A lot of his development hinges on Jake Locker. If he can play better this season, Britt's numbers can improve. Britt is capable of 1,000 yards and double-digit scores, but you better count on more like a season of 900 yards and seven touchdowns. Draft him as a low-end No. 2 or top No. 3 fantasy receiver. He has plenty of question marks surrounding him.

 #56  Danny Amendola$10  Yr: 2012  TDs: 0  Yds: 666  Recpts: 63New EnglandBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Amendola had a hard time staying healthy last season but once again was the top receiver for the Rams when playing. He had 63 receptions in 11 games and finishes with 91 receptions for 969 yards and four touchdowns if he plays a full year. The issue for Amendola has been staying healthy, missing 20 games the last two seasons. He heads to the Patriots this season, taking over the Wes Welker role for the team. He has huge reception potential in this offense and should fit the Welker role very well. Amendola lacks size, but has good quickness and great hands. He runs good routes and is tough as nails for a player of his size. Amendola just moves the chains and has a knack for the extremely tough catch.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Amendola sees a big boost in value with his move to New England but is a risk because of his past injury history. But if he can play a full year, he can get 100-plus receptions and hit the 1,000-yard mark for the first time in his career. Consider him a low-end No. 1 for fantasy teams. Amendola can do some real damage in this offense.

 #57  Reggie Wayne$17  Yr: 2012  TDs: 5  Yds: 1355  Recpts: 106IndianapolisBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Wayne certainly enjoyed his first season with quarterback Andrew Luck, having one of the better seasons of his career. He didn't show many signs of slowing down, topping 100 receptions and 1,300 yards. Wayne had three 100-yard games and at least 70 yards all but four games. He also had at least three receptions every game, proving to be a very consistent target in the passing game. Wayne scored just five touchdowns, though, despite having more than 100 catches. He wasn't a huge factor in the red zone, which has been the case in recent seasons. He has 15 touchdowns the last three years. He does have 1,000-yard seasons eight of nine years and 100-plus receptions four of those seasons. Wayne is 34 years old and probably played his best football in the past but didn't show many signs of slowing down last season. He remains a dependable, durable receiver. Wayne used to be mostly a top deep threat, but has emerged as one of the better possession receivers in the game. He has great hands and is a top route runner.

Fantasy Outlook:  
It will be hard for Wayne to match last season at this point of his career. He can still top 1,000 yards but don't expect the huge numbers of last season. He'll get 85 or so receptions and six touchdowns, making him more of a top No. 2 fantasy receiver than a No. 1. He has to start slowing down sooner than later, right?

 #58  Chris Givens$3  Yr: 2012  TDs: 0  Yds: 698  Recpts: 42St LouisBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Givens started his rookie season slow but emerged as a starter in the offense and the No. 1 receiver most of the year with Danny Amendola hurting. Givens finished with just fewer than 700 yards and three touchdowns. He had eight games with 50-plus yards after starting the year with just nine yards in three games. Givens should play a huge role in the offense from day one this year and could be the top target in this offense. Givens is a legit deep threat in the passing game. He has great speed and big-play ability, just running by defenders at times. His route running has improved but still could use a little work. If he can become more polished on his shorter routes, Givens could be a top receiver in this league.

Fantasy Outlook:  
You have to love his upside for this season. Givens has 1,000-yard potential after flashing very good things last season. He is a player on the rise and could be a low-end No. 2 or No. 3 fantasy receiver this season. Givens has a good chance to get around 70 receptions for 1,000 yards and seven touchdowns.

 #59  Emmanuel Sanders$2  Yr: 2012  TDs: 0  Yds: 626  Recpts: 44DenverBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Sanders found his way into the starting lineup because of injury and didn't do too badly in a starting role. He had a career-best season, about doubling his stats across the board from the previous season. He had multiple receptions all but two games. His yardage numbers weren't great, though, having more than 50 yards just five times. Sanders has more than 500 yards just once in three seasons, which was last year. He has been reserve material more than anything but should get his chance to compete for a starting job this year. He has a chance for his most playing time to date as a pro. 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 for a young receiver.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Sanders can do better than last season but don't expect monster numbers. He can get 60 or so receptions for 800 yards and five touchdowns, making him reserve material for fantasy teams. He just doesn't seem to have the skill set to be an every-week fantasy player just yet.

 #60  Denarius Moore$2  Yr: 2012  TDs: 0  Yds: 741  Recpts: 51OaklandBye: 7 
 
Player News:
Moore didn't have the breakout season as expected. He had some big games but was inconsistent for the Raiders. Moore had career highs across the board but his numbers were pretty mediocre. His best asset was finding the end zone, scoring seven times. Moore had just one 100-yard game, though, and topped 50 yards just six times. He had fewer than 50 yards seven straight games to end his season. Moore still is the favorite to be the No. 1 receiver for the Raiders this season. He still has a bright future if he can make some strides from last season. Moore has the skill to be a top deep threat in the league (averages 16.2 yards per reception). He has good straight line speed and can get deep in a hurry. He needs to improve his route running, though, to become a more complete package at receiver.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Moore will have some big games and finish with pretty good numbers his third season in the league. But don't be surprised if he disappears some weeks, which will drive fantasy teams a little nuts. Even with that said, Moore is worth a look as a top No. 3 fantasy receiver. He can get around 65 receptions for 1,000 yards and seven or so touchdowns.

 #61  Mike Evans ---Bye:  
 
 #62  Markus Wheaton PittsburghBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Wheaton is a speed burner that seems likely to work out of the slot for the Steelers, 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. He should his targets as a rookie and be a big part of this offense for years to come.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Wheaton has some upside in a good offense but will compete with a host of others for targets, so his production will be a little hit or miss. We could see him getting around 55 receptions for 700 yards and a few scores, though, working out of the slot. He could help as a deep reserve for fantasy teams.

 #63  Harry Douglas Yr: 2012  TDs: 0  Yds: 395  Recpts: 38AtlantaBye: 6 
 
Player News:
Douglas continues to work as the slot receiver in the Falcons' offense, posting very similar numbers the last two seasons in this role. He had 38 receptions for 396 yards and a touchdown last season. Douglas had just one game with more than 50 yards but had multiple receptions 12 of 16 games. Over the last two seasons, Douglas averages 39 receptions for 447 yards and a touchdown per season. He should continue a similar role this season for the Falcons. Douglas is a playmaker. He isn't very big, but has top speed and pretty good hands. He is tough to bring down in the open field with the ball in his hands.

Fantasy Outlook:  
His value would be better if Tony Gonzalez retired but as long as he is still around, we don't see a jump in production for Douglas. He should have similar season to the last few years, getting around 40 receptions for 450 yards with a touchdown. His lack of scores really hurts his fantasy production, scoring four times in four seasons. He is worth a look in PPR formats as a reserve but that is about it.

 #64  Ryan Broyles$2  Yr: 2012  TDs: 2  Yds: 310  Recpts: 22DetroitBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Just when Broyles was starting to play a bigger role in the offense, he tore his ACL. This was terrible news as he tore his other ACL the previous season. Broyles has a chance to be close to ready for the start of this season but nothing is certain, especially if you consider he is now playing on two surgically repaired knees. Broyles had 22 receptions for 310 yards in 10 games last season before the injury. He even had a 100-yard performance in Week 12. When he gets healthy, Broyles will challenge for a starting spot with the Lions. He projects more so for the top slot receive for the team, though. Broyles is a small, quick receiver that does well in space. He does a good job of getting open and making plays after the catch. His size causes him to get jammed at the line some, though, and likely prevents him from being a starter in this league.

Fantasy Outlook: Sleeper
Broyles is likely to be slowed much of the coming season, so don't bother with a roster spot for him - at least early in the season. His injury was a tough break for his career because he was just starting to get more chances for the Lions.

 #65  Stedman Bailey St LouisBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Bailey likely starts his rookie season in a reserve role but could be a starter before long. He lacks some size and isn't a speed burner but runs very good routes and has plus hands. He will make the tough catch and has a knack for getting open. He makes the most of his abilities and could blossom in the NFL after a few seasons. For now, expect him to be the No. 3 or 4 for the Rams.

Fantasy Outlook:  
This season probably isn't the one to own Bailey but you have to like his upside going forward. He could be a starter in another season or two. For this year, expect about 30 receptions for 400 yards and a few scores.

 #66  Ted Ginn Jr. Yr: 2012  TDs: 0  Yds: 1  Recpts: 2ArizonaBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Ginn got very little work as a receiver last season, catching just two passes, but helped as a return man on special teams once again. His value is as a returner more than anything these days. He has fewer than 20 receptions three straight seasons. Things could change for Ginn some this season with a move to Carolina, though. He might get a few more chances to stretch the field as the Panthers are looking for playmakers at receiver. 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. He'll continue to get sporadic work at receiver, but should get plenty of chances to return punts and kicks.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Ginn could see a little surge in stats as a receiver but nothing huge. He might get 25 or so receptions for 400 yards with a few scores. He still is a reach for fantasy teams unless you are in a return yardage league.

 #67  Da'Rick Rogers IndianapolisBye: 8 
 
 #68  Greg Little$3  Yr: 2012  TDs: 4  Yds: 647  Recpts: 53ClevelandBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Little didn't have quite the season as expected, getting fewer reception and yards than his rookie year. He did have more touchdowns, though, scoring four. Little had eight games with 50-plus yards but his season high in yards was 77. Little didn't have many big games in an offense that struggled to throw the ball often last season. In two seasons, Little averages 57 receptions for 678 yards and three touchdowns. He'll challenge for a starting job with the Browns this season but will need to make some strides as a receiver to earn that spot with the new coaching regime. Little is a big receiver that can get downfield in a hurry. He'll make the tough catch in traffic and does a good job of making a big play out of a short reception. He isn't a polished product, though, and needs to improve his route running and consistency.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Little has some upside to take a step forward but nothing is certain with him at this point. He just hasn't progressed as expected. He has a chance to set some career highs but that isn't saying a whole lot. We are looking for a season with around 65 receptions for 750 yards and five or so touchdowns. Consider him a low-end No. 3 or No. 4 for fantasy teams.

 #69  Stephen Hill$1  Yr: 2012  TDs: 3  Yds: 252  Recpts: 21New York JetsBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Despite the Jets needing all sorts of help at receiver, Hill didn't get a ton of work his rookie season. He did miss some time because of a knee injury, which eventually required minor surgery, but had just 21 receptions in 11 games. His season highs came in Week 1, catching five passes for 89 yards and two touchdowns. He didn't do much after that game. Hill wasn't helped by poor quarterback play, though, so his numbers can improve if that area gets better. Hill should be given every shot to win a starter's job for the Jets. He gives the Jets a top deep threat at receiver. Hill is a very athletic receiver with the ability to get deep in a hurry and make a big play. Hill remains a bit raw, though, and needs to work on his route running and consistency. He could have some ups and downs once again in 2013.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Hill is an exciting talent but plays for a poor offensive team. This doesn't help his fantasy value. He should improve on last season but probably won't have big numbers. He might get 50 or so receptions for 800 yards and five touchdowns. He is a depth guy for fantasy teams more than anything.

 #70  Santonio Holmes$1  Yr: 2012  TDs: 1  Yds: 272  Recpts: 20New York JetsBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Holmes hurt his foot early in the season and was placed on Injured Reserve after just four games. He was pretty productive in those four games, though. He had a 100-yard showing and finished with nearly 300 yards. He'll return to the Jets as the top option in their passing game. His numbers haven't been too impressive since joining the Jets. In three seasons with the Jets, his season high in yards is just 746. He had more than 800 yards four straight years with the Steelers before joining the Jets. New York should have a better passing attack this year after an awful season throwing the ball but still has concerns for 2013. Holmes is a great athlete with top speed. He is a top deep threat capable of making the remarkable catch. His route running and pass-catching is better than earlier in his career, but he will still suffer from the occasional big drop.

Fantasy Outlook: Injury Concern
His value would be better if he played in a better passing attack, but we all know that isn't the case. Holmes will have some big games but his numbers will be pretty mediocre from week to week. Consider him a No. 3 for fantasy teams. He can get around 800 yards and five or so scores.

 #71  Dexter McCluster$1  Yr: 2012  TDs: 0  Yds: 452  Recpts: 52TennesseeBye: 8 
 
Player News:
McCluster emerged as the slot receiver for the Chiefs last season and got little work rushing the ball, having 12 carries. He did have a career-high 52 receptions, though. He had multiple receptions all but three games. He did top 50-receiving yards just three times. McCluster wasn't a huge big-play threat but got his work in the passing game. He has 45 or more receptions two straight seasons. And his role could expand a little more this season in the Chiefs new offense, an offense that should throw often. McCluster could be used in a variety of ways. McCluster has top speed and great moves in space. He catches the ball well out of the backfield and proved last season he can be a receiver full time. His size prevents him from being an every-down back but he continues to move towards being a receiver role full time.

Fantasy Outlook:  
McCluster has some value in PPR formats. He'll get his catches and could even set a career high in that area this season. But his yards aren't too impressive and he has just four offensive touchdowns in three seasons. He could be worth a look as a flex play but don't count on him as an every-week starter.

 #72  Mohamed Sanu$1  Yr: 2012  TDs: 4  Yds: 154  Recpts: 16CincinnatiBye: 12 
 
Player News:
A stress fracture in his foot cut Sanu's rookie season short, which was a shame because he was just starting to produce before getting injure. He had five straight games with multiple receptions and four touchdowns during that stretch before the injury. The Bengals remain high on Sanu and think he'll challenge for a starting job this season. Sanu is more of a possession-type receiver, lacking some big-play ability. He is a good fit for the Bengals West Coast offense. Sanu 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 seems setup to take a nice step forward this season. He can get around 60 catches for 700 yards and a few scores. He'll move the chains and get consistent targets in an emerging offense, giving him some value as a reserve for fantasy teams.

 #73  Kenny Stills$1  New OrleansBye: 7 
 
Player News:
Stills was drafted by the Saints and will serve a reserve role with the team. He'll get some work his rookie season but likely gets a chance to learn as much as anything. He won't have a prominent role as a rookie but should get some chances. Stills is a good athlete with quickness and the knack for making the tough catch. He will drop some easy passes, though, and has some maturity issues. It might be a few seasons before he is making a big impact with the Saints, starting as the No. 4 or 5 receiver for the team.

Fantasy Outlook: Hot
Stills won't produce big numbers his rookie season but could have a few big games. He might get 30 or so receptions for 400 yards and a score or two. He isn't worth a draft pick just yet for fantasy teams.

 #74  Robert Woods BuffaloBye: 12 
 
Player News:
Woods gives the Bills a legit starter at receiver opposite Steve Johnson. Woods will be given every opportunity to start his rookie seasons. Woods is a good fit for the starting job. He isn't a huge receiver but runs good routes and comes from a pro-style offense. He knows how to get open and can make plays all over the field. He has the speed to stretch the field but also does well on shorter routes. He does lack a little strength, though, and will need to play with more toughness to have big-time success in the NFL.

Fantasy Outlook:  
His upside isn't huge because of the offense he plays, but he could be worth some spot starts for fantasy teams. He has plenty of ability and could have some big games his rookie season. He should be able to get around 60 receptions for 800 yards and a few scores in this offense.

 #75  Rod Streater Yr: 2012  TDs: 3  Yds: 584  Recpts: 39OaklandBye: 7 
 
Player News:
Streater was an undrafted rookie but found his way into a pretty prominent role his rookie season, finishing among the top rookie receivers in the game. He had 39 receptions for 584 yards, averaging an impressive 15 yards per reception. Streater was a top big-play threat for the offense and will be given a chance to compete for the starting job from day one. Streater is a tall receiver with decent speed and athletic ability. He runs routes pretty well for a young receiver and seems to have the makeup to be a starter in this league.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Streater is worth a late-round look come draft day. He has some upside and could emerge as the top receiver in this offense. He can finish with around 60 receptions for 800 yards and six touchdowns.

 #76  Nate Burleson Yr: 2012  TDs: 2  Yds: 240  Recpts: 27ClevelandBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Burleson played six games last season before breaking his leg and missing the rest of the year. He had 240 yards and two touchdowns before the injury, having two games with 60-plus yards. But he didn't get a ton of work before the injury, posting similar numbers to his previous few seasons with the Lions. In three seasons with the Lions, Burleson has never topped 760 yards despite starting most of the time. He might move to more of a reserve role this season at age 32 (when the season starts) and returning from a pretty severe broken leg. Burleson has just one 1,000-yard season for his career, but has topped 600 yards four of the last six years. Injuries have derailed Burleson some, hurting his production and overall career path. Burleson isn't a speed burner, but has decent hands and runs solid routes.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Burleson is trending downward but always capable of the big game in this offense. He can still get around 700 yards and four or so scores, making him worth consideration as a No. 4 or 5 fantasy receiver.

 #77  T.J. Graham Yr: 2012  TDs: 1  Yds: 322  Recpts: 31BuffaloBye: 12 
 
Player News:
Graham got a decent amount of playing time his rookie season, getting some starts as well as serving as the slot receiver. He didn't have many big games but was pretty consistent for the Bills. He had multiple receptions 10 of 16 games. Graham had more than 50 yards just once all year, though. He'll have a chance for a bigger role from day one this year. He could get a chance to compete for a starting role with the Bills. Graham has a ton of speed and does a great job of getting by defenders. He lacks polish, though. Graham isn't much of a route runner and lacks some physicality.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Graham didn't do it last year but has some big-game potential because of his game-changing speed. The Bills will find ways to get him involved offensive even if he doesn't start. He could be worth a late-round grab come draft day, especially in PPR leagues. He could get around 50 receptions for 550 yards and a few scores.

 #78  Vincent Brown$2  San DiegoBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Brown broke his ankle during the preseason last year and missed the entire season. The injury came at a bad time because Brown was expected to play a bigger role with the team. He will get his chance this season, though, to earn a starting job with the Chargers. They remain very high on him going forward. Brown had nearly 400 yards his rookie season but remains pretty unproven at this stage of his career. Brown isn't a big target, but runs very good routes and has plus hands. He just has a knack for getting open, finding the soft spot in coverage. Brown also has decent moves in space, making some plays after the catch as evident by his yardage totals his rookie season. His lack of speed is somewhat of a concern, though, as he could struggle to get consistent playing time.

Fantasy Outlook: Sleeper
Brown is worth a late-round look come draft day. He could have a starting job in an offense that likes to throw. And even if he doesn't start, he should get plenty of chances as a No. 3 receiver. Expect a season with around 50 receptions for 700 yards and a few scores.

 #79  Justin Hunter TennesseeBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Hunter is a big, tall receiver that does a great job of stretching the field. He is expected to be a starter his rookie season, starting alongside Kenny Britt. Hunter has speed, size and can separate in a hurry. He will drop some passes, though, and isn't very physical but should get better in those areas with more seasoning. He should be a starter in Tennessee for years to come.

Fantasy Outlook:  
The concern is his quarterback play but Hunter will be able to post some big games because of his big-game ability. He should be able to get around 50 receptions for 800 yards and five touchdowns. He is worth a reserve spot for fantasy teams and some starts.

 #80  Brian Quick Yr: 2012  TDs: 2  Yds: 156  Recpts: 11St LouisBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Quick was a bit of a bust his rookie season, getting very little playing time. He caught just 11 passes all season. He did score two touchdowns despite limited chances, though, so that was one positive. He'll be given every opportunity to earn a big role with the team this season, though. Quick will compete for a shot to start with the Rams during his second season. Quick has very good size and strength for the position. He also has plus hands and does well in getting himself opening, using his big frame to his advantage. He doesn't have great speed, though, and looked lost at times his rookie season. He needs to take a big step forward this season to earn that starting spot with the Rams.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Quick is worth a late-round look this season. He was a bust last year but can improve with more playing time in 2013. He has a shot to get 50 or so receptions for 750 yards and six touchdowns. Quick isn't a guy to give up on just yet.

 #81  Brandon LaFell Yr: 2012  TDs: 4  Yds: 677  Recpts: 44New EnglandBye: 10 
 
Player News:
LaFell was the starter from day one last season for the Panthers and finished with career highs in receptions, yards and touchdowns. His numbers weren't gaudy but pretty consistent. He didn't have a 100-yard game but managed more than 50 yards seven times in 14 games. With more chances the last two seasons, LaFell averages 40 receptions for 645 yards and four touchdowns. He won't be handed the starter's job this season, though, as he hasn't exactly excelled with his chances. He'll compete for the starting spot. LaFell is a big receiver with pretty good speed and soft hands. LaFell has some consistency issues, but should continue to develop with more seasoning. He is more of a possession receiver than deep threat despite his gaudy yards per reception totals for his career.

Fantasy Outlook:  
LaFell has some upside, especially if he starts again, so he is worth some late-round consideration. He could get 800 yards and five or so scores in an emerging offense. He is a young player that could take another step forward this season.

 #82  Nate Washington Yr: 2012  TDs: 4  Yds: 746  Recpts: 46TennesseeBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Washington saw a dip in production last year after his first 1,000-yard season. He was more erratic with the Titans passing game having struggles. Washington had about 750 yards and four touchdowns. His numbers were very similar to all his seasons in the NFL besides his 1,000-yard season in 2011. Washington failed to top 50 receptions or 700 yards in any season before the last two seasons. Washington should continue to start but be used as a No. 2 receiver in the offense. Washington has good speed and size, and does a good job of stretching the field. He does tend to drop some passes, though, which hurts his stats some.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Washington came back down to earth last season and should finish with those similar numbers to the rest of his career. The '11 season seems more out of the norm than anything. We would expect him to get about 45 catches for 700 yards and five touchdowns. He is a low-end No. 3 or No. 4 fantasy receiver.

 #83  Donnie Avery Yr: 2012  TDs: 3  Yds: 781  Recpts: 60Kansas CityBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Avery was relevant again last season after disappearing the last few years. He found his way into the Colts starting lineup and had his best season to date, finishing with 60 receptions for 781 yards and three touchdowns. Avery had two 100-yard games and multiple receptions all but a game. Avery had three seasons with 580-plus yards. His biggest issue has been staying healthy but he seemed to turn the corner some last season. He signed with the Chiefs this offseason and will be given every chance to start opposite Dwayne Bowe in another pass-friendly offense. Avery struggled with consistency early in his career but was much better in this area last season. He still has some issues with drops and could improve his route running, though. Avery does have a lot of talent. He is a big-play threat with a lot of speed. He does a good job of making plays in space and will make the acrobatic catch.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Avery could improve a little on last season but don't expect much better. He still is an injury risk and doesn't have a history of finding the end zone a whole lot. He can get around 65 receptions for 800 yards and five touchdowns, making him reserve material for fantasy teams.

 #84  Quinton Patton San FranciscoBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Patton is likely to play a reserve role his rookie season but will be groomed to be a starter, learning from some productive players ahead of him on the depth chart. He is the future at the receiver position for the 49ers. He should be No. 4 or 5 on the depth chart this season, though. Patton is the complete package at receiver. He has pretty good size, runs well and is a pretty polished route runner for a young player. He has a few issues with drops but should improve on those with more seasoning.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Patton is a talented player with upside but will have a hard time finding the field his rookie year. He has a lot to compete with for playing time. He might get 20 receptions for 300 yards with a score or two. His value will be much higher in a year or two.

 #85  Andre Roberts Yr: 2012  TDs: 0  Yds: 759  Recpts: 64WashingtonBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Roberts had his best season as a pro, starting much of the season for the Cardinals. He did pretty well in this role despite poor quarterback play from the Cardinals. Roberts had 64 receptions for 759 yards and five touchdowns. All three were career highs for Roberts. He had two 100-yard games and another with 90-plus yards. He did have eight games with fewer than 50 yards, showing he wasn't super consistent in his starting role. But improved quarterback play should help his numbers this season. It can't get much worse for the Cardinals at quarterback than last season. Roberts runs above-average routes, has good speed and can make plays after the catch. He isn't a huge receiver, which makes him a good fit for the slot more so than as a starter. He could move to more of a slot receiver if Michael Floyd emerges in his second season. Roberts is more of a possession receiver than a big-play threat.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Even if he plays out of the slot more this year, you have to like the chances of Roberts to set more career highs in the Cardinals vertical passing game. They are going to throw a lot, so Roberts should get consistent targets. He can get 70-plus receptions for 800 yards and a six touchdowns, making him a guy to consider as a No. 4 fantasy receiver.

 #86  Santana Moss Yr: 2012  TDs: 8  Yds: 573  Recpts: 41WashingtonBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Moss didn't have as big of a role in the offense last season and it showed in his production, having one of his least productive seasons in the pros. He did score eight touchdowns, though, which was one of the highest totals of his career. He didn't have a 100-yard season, though, and his high in yards was just 80. He had more than 50 yards just five of 16 games. Moss was more of a possession receiver, a role he should serve again this season. At age 34, his best days are likely behind him. Moss still has good speed and can stretch the field in a hurry. He has improved his shorter routes and is a more dependable option underneath, something he needed to do late in his career.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Moss is fading fast. Another drop in production seems about a right for Moss. We look for about 35 receptions for 450 yards and four touchdowns. He isn't much of a fantasy options anymore.

 #87  Jacoby Jones Yr: 2012  TDs: 2  Yds: 406  Recpts: 30BaltimoreBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Jones didn't see a jump in production with his move to the Ravens last season but had some big moments for the team, including scores in two of four playoff games. In the regular season, Jones just topped 400 yard and had 50 or more yards four of 16 games. His numbers have been pretty similar his entire career, finishing between 400 and 565 yards each of the last four seasons. Jones should have a similar role with the Ravens this season, getting some chances to stretch the field and working as a top return man. He had three return touchdowns for the Ravens last season. Jones is a big-play threat at receiver because of his top speed but struggles some with drops and his route running.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Jones might have the big game on occasion but you just don't know when that will happen. His role as a receiver could increase some this season but don't expect many more chances. He should finish with close to his usual numbers, getting about 570 yards and a few scores. His biggest value is as a return man.

 #88  Andrew Hawkins Yr: 2012  TDs: 4  Yds: 533  Recpts: 51ClevelandBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Hawkins caught on as the No. 3 receiver for the Bengals last season and had a career season, catching 51 passes for 533 yards and four touchdowns. He had more than 50 yards each of his first three games but didn't top that mark the rest of the year after Week 3. He did have 10 games with three or more receptions, though, serving as a solid possession receiver for the Bengals. He is likely to keep that No. 3 receiver job for the Bengals this season. Hawkins is a small target but makes plays in space and has a knack for getting open. His small stature likely prevents him from starting but makes him an ideal player for the slot.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Hawkins took a big step forward last season and should be in the plans for the Bengals going forward. He has more value in PPR formats. Hawkins can finish with around 60 receptions for 600 yards and a few scores. He is a reserve option for fantasy teams.

 #89  Jarrett Boykin Yr: 2012  TDs: 0  Yds: 27  Recpts: 5Green BayBye: 4 
 
 #90  Jarius Wright Yr: 2012  TDs: 2  Yds: 310  Recpts: 22MinnesotaBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Wright was inactive much of the early part of his rookie season but got his chances late and performed pretty well with an expanded role. He had 22 receptions in seven games. He made plays, having 50-plus yards three times and multiple receptions all but one game he played. Wright will get a chance to start from day one for the Vikings this season. Wright is a small receiver but runs plus routes and has solid hands. He does well out of the slot but did perform well in a starting role for the Vikings last season, proving he could start. His size does cause him some issues, though, as the opposition can get physical with him to knock him off his game. He'll need to get stronger if he hopes to improve his game in the NFL.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Wright has a chance for a much bigger role, but he will still be up and down in this offense. He isn't a great fantasy play just yet but could be worth some spot starts for fantasy teams. A season with around 55 receptions for 700 yards and a few scores seems about right for Wright in his second NFL season.

 #91  Jeremy Kerley Yr: 2012  TDs: 1  Yds: 827  Recpts: 56New York JetsBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Kerley emerged as the most reliable receiver in the Jets' offense last season. He had a career season and had more than 800 yards. He had six games with 65-plus yards in a passing attack that struggled much of the season. He was more of the slot guy for the Jets but got plenty of targets in that role, catching 56 passes. He should have a similar role in the offense this season, serving as the No. 3 or slot guy for the Jets. Kerley isn't a big target, but a small playmaker that does well in space. He does need to shore up his route running but does well on short routes and has a knack for getting open. He'll make plays in space, making things happen after the catch.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Kerley might have a hard time matching last season, so don't overvalue him. He won't score much but has a little reception and yardage potential in his current role. He should get around 50 receptions for 700 yards and a few scores. He is a reserve for fantasy teams.

 #92  Jason Avant Yr: 2012  TDs: 0  Yds: 648  Recpts: 53CarolinaBye: 4 
 
Player News:
Avant continues to post steady numbers as the No. 3 receiver in the Eagles' offense. He has enjoyed very similar numbers the last four seasons, averaging 49 receptions for 622 yards and a touchdown per season. Avant had multiple receptions all but a game last season and had a 100-yard game. He gets consistent work as a nice safety net for the team. Avant has more than 500 yards four straight seasons but his season high in yards is 679 yards. Avant isn't a speed burner, but runs good routes and makes some tough catches. Avant also can fill in as a starter if needed, posting some good numbers in that role when called upon.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Avant is a serviceable reserve option in PPR leagues. He'll get you around 45 receptions for 550 or so yards. He won't score much, though, which hurts his value. He has just 10 touchdowns in seven seasons.

 #93  Austin Pettis Yr: 2012  TDs: 0  Yds: 261  Recpts: 30St LouisBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Pettis saw a bit of a bump in his numbers from his rookie season but not much more production. He had a few more receptions and yards but his biggest jump was in touchdowns, scoring four compared to none his rookie season. Pettis had more than 50 yards just once all last season. He did have multiple receptions 10 times, though, so he got his chances. Pettis has a chance for a much bigger role this season, maybe taking over as the No. 3 receiver/slot guy for the Rams. Danny Amendola got a ton of work in this role, which is encouraging for Pettis. He doesn't wow you with his speed, but Pettis is a big target that runs good routes. He seems a good fit for the slot and red zone. Pettis has struggled some with drops and lapses in concentration to start his career, so he'll need to shore up that area for a big role in this season's offense.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Pettis can see a good jump in production, especially in receptions. He is worth a late-round look, especially in PPR formats. A season with 60 receptions for 600 yards and five touchdowns is realistic for Pettis.

 #94  A.J. Jenkins Yr: 2012  TDs: 0  Yds: 0  Recpts: 0Kansas CityBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Jenkins was inactive most of his rookie season, playing just three games. He didn't even get a reception and was targeted just once. The 49ers bring along their young players slowly, though, so don't discount Jenkins for a much bigger role this season. He has some competition for playing time with Anquan Boldin now on board. Jenkins still looks to be fourth on the depth chart but should get worked in more and groomed to take over as the starter once Boldin moves on. Jenkins is a top deep threat. He has top speed and stretches the field in a hurry. He is a big-play threat that gives the offense a different dimension. Jenkins does lack a little consistency and could use some work on his underneath routes to take his game to another level.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Jenkins would look better if Boldin wasn't around but that is the case for at least this season. So Jenkins should get more work this year but don't expect a huge jump in production. He has some work to do to move up the depth chart. Jenkins has a chance for 20 or so receptions for 300 yards with a few scores.

 #95  Jonathan Baldwin Yr: 2012  TDs: 1  Yds: 325  Recpts: 20San FranciscoBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Baldwin had another ho-hum season, finishing with fewer than 350 yards while catching 20 passes. He had three games with 50 or more yards but went several games without even a reception (five). Baldwin is at a crossroads with his career. This could be a make or break year for him. He could take off and get more playing time but could fall out of favor quickly and even get released. Baldwin is a big-play threat. He has the speed and size to stretch the field in a hurry. He isn't a great route runner, though, and needs to improve his consistency. Things just haven't clicked for him since entering the league.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Baldwin is just fighting for a roster spot with his new team so we wouldn't bother with him come draft day. He is a long shot.

 #96  Jacoby Ford New York JetsBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Ford missed all of last year, injuring his foot before the start of the season. He needed surgery to repair damage from a Lisfranc condition. He has battled foot issues each of the past two seasons, which is a concern going forward. Ford has never topped 500 yards in a season as a receiver but continues to be a big-time return man. He has four return touchdowns for his career. Ford won't play a huge role as a receiver but will get some work at receiver in a reserve role. His biggest asset probably remains as a kick returner. Ford is an explosive talent. He still isn't a great route runner, but has improved some. His speed and athleticism make him a top deep threat. He has track speed and great moves in space.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Ford will have some big games and could set career highs but don't expect him to be much help to fantasy teams. He could get 500 or so yards and a few scores. He'll be too hit or miss to help fantasy teams throughout the season but is a big help in leagues that reward return yardage.

 #97  Corey Fuller DetroitBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Fuller has a chance to make an impact his rookie season. The Lions have plenty of openings at receiver outside of Calvin Johnson. Fuller is a top athlete with plus speed. He can get open in a hurry and make plays after the catch. He still needs work on his route running, though, and his overall game remains a bit raw. The Lions hope he emerges as the starter at some point but that might be down the road. He is likely the No. 3 or 4 receiver to open the season.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Fuller has upside in a pass-first offense but until he moves up the depth chart, he isn't worth a roster spot. He seems like a better guy to draft in a few seasons. He might get around 35 receptions for 500 yards and a few scores his rookie year.

 #98  Domenik Hixon Yr: 2012  TDs: 0  Yds: 567  Recpts: 39ChicagoBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Hixon had a big season last year, getting some chances to start for the Giants because of injury. He played well with those chances, catching 39 passes for 567 yards and two touchdowns. He even had a 100-yard game in Week 4. Hixon has two seasons with 565-plus receiving yards. The Panthers signed him this offseason and will give him first shot at their No. 3 receiver spot. He can fill this role well. Hixon is a big receiver with some strength and plus speed. He isn't a great route runner but has improved in this area. He is a playmaker with the ball in his hands, so expect the Panthers to try to find ways to get him involved.

Fantasy Outlook:  
The Panthers don't have a history of producing big numbers for their No. 3 receiver, so Hixon isn't likely to set many career highs this season. He could get around 40 receptions for 500 yards and a few scores. He is worth a look as a deep reserve for fantasy teams.

 #99  Davone Bess Yr: 2012  TDs: 0  Yds: 778  Recpts: 61ClevelandBye: 10 
 
Player News:
A back injury cut his season short by three games last year but Bess performed well before the injury. He had nearly 800 yards, averaging 59.8 yards per game. Bess has almost a 1,000-yard season if he is able to stay healthy all year. Bess was a consistent factor in the offense but not much of a big-game threat, having more than 60 yards just four of 13 games. Bess has at least 50 receptions every NFL season. He has more than 700 yards three of five seasons. He has been a top possession receiver since joining the NFL. Bess heads to the Browns this season, getting traded in the offseasn. He should get plenty of playing time with his new team, working out of the slot in an offense looking for playmakers. Bess doesn't get much work in the red zone (12 touchdowns in five seasons), but he is a top possession receiver. He is less than six foot, but has good hands and runs pretty precise routes. He makes the most of his ability.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Bess seems setup for his usual season. He has more value in PPR formats but has some value in all leagues. He will get his receptions and yards with the occasional touchdown. A season with around 75 receptions for 850 yards and three touchdowns seems likely for Bess.

 #100  Juron Criner Yr: 2012  TDs: 1  Yds: 151  Recpts: 16OaklandBye: 7 
 
Player News:
Criner got some work his rookie season but not a ton of reps in 12 games. He caught 16 passes for 151 yards. He did miss some time with a hip injury but wasn't a huge part of the offense when healthy. His season high in yards was 29. Criner could have a bigger role in the offense this season, though. He has a chance to move up the depth chart and serve as the No. 3 or 4 receiver. Criner is a top athlete with good size and speed. He has big-time ability. He runs pretty good routes for a young player, and his size makes him a decent red-zone option and deep threat.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Criner should get more targets this season but still isn't a big fantasy threat just yet. He has a chance to double his output from last season but that doesn't give him a ton of value. He might get 400 or so yards and a couple scores.

 #101  Terrance Williams DallasBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Williams is a big, strong receiver that does a great job of stretching the field. He will be a top deep threat in the Cowboys' offense. He probably won't start this season but should be a starter in a few seasons. For now, expect him to be the No. 3 or 4 for the Cowboys. He isn't great on shorter routes and isn't much more than a deep threat at this stage of his career. He can grow with more seasoning but seems setup for spot play his rookie season. The Cowboys hope he becomes a starter in the offense before long, though.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Williams has some big-game potential but should be hit or miss for fantasy teams his rookie season. He won't get a ton of consistent targets. He can get around 30 receptions for 450 yards and a few scores this year.

 #102  Marquise Goodwin BuffaloBye: 12 
 
Player News:
Goodwin is a speed burner that gives the Bills a top deep threat in the passing game. He should get plenty of chances to stretch the field and some screen opportunities his rookie season. Goodwin is a former track star and maybe the fastest receiver to come out of this year's draft. He has high upside, especially if he refines his route running and adds some bulk. He lacks some strength right now and is a limited route runner. But he has time to grow and should get chances to make plays in the offense as the No. 3 or 4 receiver.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Goodwin is another rookie receiver that will be hit or miss. He'll get some chances but won't be a steady producer. Goodwin will be boom or bust most weeks. We look for a season with around 30 receptions for 500 yards and a few scores.

 #103  David Nelson Yr: 2012  TDs: 0  Yds: 31  Recpts: 2New York JetsBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Nelson tore his ACL the first game of last season and missed all but that first game, catching two passes for 31 yards. He was hurt early enough to be ready for the coming season, though. His ACL injury shouldn't be a huge factor after having a long time to rehab. Nelson has topped 600 yards just once in three seasons but does have 94 receptions. Nelson has some upside and can do well as a No. 3 or 4 receiver, a role he'll try to serve with the Browns this season. Nelson is a big target with good hands and the ability to move the chains. Nelson has a great build for the receiver position and does well in the red zone.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Nelson isn't a big-play threat, but will get some catches and yards. He could get 60 receptions for 600 yards with six or so touchdowns. He has more value in PPR formats than standard leagues.

 #104  Jerome Simpson Yr: 2012  TDs: 0  Yds: 274  Recpts: 26MinnesotaBye: 5 
 
Player News:
A move to Minnesota and a full-time starting gig was supposed to take Simpson's game to a new level last season but that wasn't the case. Simpson didn't do much at all with the Vikings, catching just 26 passes in 14 games. He hit the 50-yard mark receiving just once all season. The Vikings struggled throwing the ball much of the year, though, which didn't help Simpson. He'll get a chance to redeem himself this season with the Vikings but nothing is certain with him at this point. He seems destined for backup duty more than anything. Simpson is a deep threat with pretty good size and speed. He lacks some strength, but has improved his route running some, which is a step in the right direction.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Simpson had his big chance last season but never got going. He isn't a guy to draft this year unless he starts getting consistent production at receiver. Until that happens, don't bother with him on your team. Simpson can improve on last season but expect around 400 or 500 yards with a few scores.

 #105  Ace Sanders JacksonvilleBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Sanders projects to be the slot receiver for the Jags and should be the top kick returner for the team his rookie season. He is a quick receiver that has a knack for getting open and making plays after the catch. He is a perfect fit for the slot or No. 3 receiver spot. He should get plenty of chances in this role. Sanders does lack size and strength to be a starter. He also is a top return man and could give the Jags' special teams a big boost.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Sanders won't get a ton of receptions in a passing game that will struggle at times, so keep that in mind. He could get around 30 receptions for 400 yards and a score or two. His biggest asset could be on special teams, getting plenty of chances as a return man.

 #106  Earl Bennett Yr: 2012  TDs: 0  Yds: 375  Recpts: 29ChicagoBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Bennett served as the No. 3 receiver for the Bears much of last season and did alright with his chances. He had 29 receptions for 375 yards and two touchdowns in 12 games. He topped 50 yards just twice but did have a 100-yard game in one of those performances. Bennett has very similar numbers the last two seasons, averaging 27 receptions for 378 yards and two touchdowns per season. Expect similar chances for Bennett this season. Bennett isn't a speed guy, but has some quickness and is a solid possession receiver. He seems a better fit for the slot than as a starter.

Fantasy Outlook:  
If Bennett can play a full season, which he hasn't the last two years, he could get around 35 receptions for 450 yards with a few scores. He has little fantasy value with this production. Draft accordingly.

 #107  Leonard Hankerson Yr: 2012  TDs: 3  Yds: 543  Recpts: 38WashingtonBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Hankerson got more work than his rookie season but still played more of a reserve role for the Redskins. He got a few starts but never really broke through. He had some good games, though, topping 60 yards three times but his season high in yards was 70. He'll get a chance for a bigger role from day on this season but seems like to serve as the No. 3 or 4 for the Redskins. Hankerson has good size and athleticism. He isn't a speed guy, but runs solid routes and will make the tough catches in traffic. And while he isn't a burner, he is a big target that can stretch the field because of his size and strength. He makes plays downfield.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Hankerson seemed primed for a breakout year last season but that didn't come to fruition. He can improve on last year but likely not enough to make him more than a reserve for fantasy teams. Look for a season with around 50 receptions for around 700 yards and five scores.

 #108  Devin Hester Yr: 2012  TDs: 0  Yds: 242  Recpts: 23AtlantaBye: 6 
 
Player News:
Despite the Bears claiming to get him more work as a receiver, Hester's production continues to dwindle offensively. His numbers have gone down each of the last three seasons. He had the lowest yardage totals of his career last season (242) and didn't top 50 yards in a single game. Hester remains a top return man, though, having 17 return touchdowns for his career. His days getting much work at receiver seem about over. Hester has just two of five seasons with more than 500-receiving yards. Hester is a big-play threat with the ball in his hands. He has electric moves and top speed. He has made strides as a receiver, but his biggest strength remains as a return man. He is a difference maker on special teams.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Hester continues to see his production dip as a receiver. Don't expect a turnaround. He is a must have in leagues that reward return yardage, though. He remains a huge threat on special teams. But if your league isn't setup that way, don't bother with Hester. He might get 300 yards with a score or two as a receiver.

 #109  Darrius Heyward-Bey$2  Yr: 2012  TDs: 5  Yds: 606  Recpts: 41PittsburghBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Heyward-Bey had his usual erratic season. He had just more than 600-receiving yards but three games with 80-plus yards. He was boom or bust in a platoon role for the Raiders, which has been the norm for him throughout his career. He did top more than 900 yards once in a season but has less than 610 yards his other three seasons in the NFL. Heyward-Bey remains a bit unpolished. His route running isn't the best and drops continue to plague him. He remains a great straight-line runner, though, making him an exciting deep threat. He needs to continue to improve his consistency to be a full-time starter in this league. He heads to Indianapolis this season and likely serves a reserve role with the team, getting some chances to stretch the field in their pass-first offense.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Heyward-Bey always has upside for that big game but will be hit or miss in a reserve role. He can improve some on last season but don't expect much. He can get about 45 or so catches for 650 yards and a few scores. He is reserve material for fantasy teams.

 #110  Early Doucet Yr: 2012  TDs: 0  Yds: 207  Recpts: 28SeattleBye: 12 
 
Player News:
Doucet had a disappointing season, getting few chances in a passing game that struggled last season. Doucet had 207 yards, his lowest total since his rookie season. Doucet didn't top 50 yards in a single game all season. Doucet has fewer than 300 yards three of the last four seasons. He continues to struggle with consistency. Doucet has some upside as a No. 3 receiver, a role he fits pretty well. Doucet isn't a speed guy, but a good athlete with plus hands. He is a good leaper and isn't afraid to make the tough catch.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Doucet has one solid season but a bunch of below-average seasons besides that. We don't see him repeating 2011. He seems setup for another year with 250 yards with a touchdown.

 #111  Joshua Cribbs Yr: 2012  TDs: 0  Yds: 63  Recpts: 7New York JetsBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Cribbs got very little work as a receiver last season, catching just seven passes. This was his lowest total since 2008. He still got plenty of work as a return man and did well in that area. He just hasn't been an impact receiver in the NFL. He has topped 500-receiving yards just once in his career and has fewer than 300 yards seven of eight seasons. Cribbs might get a few more chances offensively this season with the Raiders but don't expect many more chances. He is best suited as a return man more than anything. Cribbs is a playmaker. He has great speed and moves in the open field.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Cribbs really isn't a fantasy option unless you are in a league that rewards return yardage. If your league isn't setup like that, don't even bother with a roster spot for Cribbs. He isn't going to do much as a receiver.

 #112  Brandon Gibson Yr: 2012  TDs: 5  Yds: 691  Recpts: 51MiamiBye: 6 
 
Player News:
Gibson started much of the season once again for the Rams last year but didn't have huge numbers in that role. He did set a career high in yards (691) and touchdowns (5) but his overall numbers weren't too impressive. He topped 50 yards six of 16 games. He has more than 600 yards two of the last three seasons. He heads to Miami this season and likely becomes the No. 3 receiver in their offense. He should serve that role well. Gibson has good size and hands. He is a tough receiver that doesn't shy away from contact and will make the acrobatic catch at time. Gibson will drop some passes, though, and has struggled with consistency.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Gibson likely won't see a surge in stats with his new team. His targets should go down some in a No. 3 role for the Dolphins. Gibson could get around 40 receptions for 500 yards and a few scores. He isn't really worth a roster spot unless you are in a deep format.

 #113  Brice Butler OaklandBye: 7 
 
 #114  Andre Caldwell Yr: 2012  TDs: 0  Yds: 18  Recpts: 1DenverBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Caldwell was inactive most weeks for the Broncos last season, catching just a pass in eight games. He had 25 or more receptions three straight seasons before last year. Caldwell seems at a bit of a crossroads in his career. This could be a make or break season for him. Caldwell is 28 years old, so time could be running out for him. Caldwell has decent size and good speed. He doesn't have a ton of big-play ability, but improved on that area some the last few years. Caldwell continues to improve as a route runner and his hands have gotten better. He'll battle for a reserve role this coming season.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Caldwell seemed ready for his big breakout season last year but that didn't happen for him. He took a step backwards, which isn't a good sign for his career. At this point, he isn't worth a draft pick or roster spot unless he starts getting consistent targets.

 #115  Chris Harper Green BayBye: 4 
 
Player News:
Harper is a big, strong receiver with plus speed. He is tough to bring down once he has the ball in his hands. He is a former quarterback, so he is still learning the position a little. Harper isn't too tall and could improve his route running. He likely opens his rookie season as the No. 3 or 4 receiver for the Seahawks. He might be the starter a few seasons down the road but will be a reserve his rookie year.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Harper will get some work but not a ton just yet. He could get around 25 receptions for 350 yards with a score or two. He isn't worth a draft pick just yet for fantasy teams. He could blossom in a few more seasons.

 #116  Doug Baldwin Yr: 2012  TDs: 0  Yds: 366  Recpts: 29SeattleBye: 12 
 
Player News:
Baldwin didn't get near the work of his rookie season with some new options emerging in the Seahawks passing game. His numbers were about half that of his rookie season, catching 29 passes for 366 yards and three touchdowns. He topped 50 yards just two times all season. And with Percy Harvin now on board, Baldwin could get even fewer targets with both players playing a similar position. Baldwin will be a reserve option for the Seahawks. 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.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Baldwin could help if the Seahawks have some injuries at receiver but until that happens, don't bother with him. He could even produce less than last season, so his value is limited.

 #117  Eddie Royal Yr: 2012  TDs: 0  Yds: 234  Recpts: 23San DiegoBye: 8 
 
Player News:
A hamstring injury sidelined Royal some last season, but he wasn't much of a factor in his first season with the Chargers even before the injury. He caught just 23 passes in 10 games. Royal topped 50 yards just once all season, which was the last game of the year. Royal has fewer than 250 yards each of the past two seasons. He hasn't done much since his big rookie season. Royal can still serve a reserve role well but isn't a starter or big-time threat at receiver. Royal can be a dependable possession receiver. He has top speed and good hands. Royal makes things happen with the ball in his hands. He lacks consistency, though, and has just 10 offensive touchdowns in five seasons.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Royal was supposed to see a spike in production last season but that didn't really happen. He might do a little better than last year, but that isn't saying much. He can get 30 or so receptions for 300 yards with a score or two. Royal is a far from exciting option for fantasy teams.

 #118  Josh Boyce New EnglandBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Boyce will compete with a host of receivers for playing time his rookie season. He isn't a tall receiver but has good strength and is tough to bring down once the ball is in his hands. He runs routes well for a young player and catches the ball well. He lacks elite speed and had some injury issues in college. He seems a good fit for the slot and could get chances in that role his rookie season with the Patriots. He'll serve a reserve role with the team.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Boyce is going to be hit or miss in this offense. He'll get some chances but won't be consistent. He will be a better option in a few seasons when the team gains confidence in his ability and can find the right way to use him. For now, look for around 20 receptions for 300 yards with a score or two.

 #119  Marlon Brown BaltimoreBye: 8 
 
 #120  Jerrel Jernigan Yr: 2012  TDs: 0  Yds: 22  Recpts: 3New York GiantsBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Jernigan caught three passes last season and has just three catches in two NFL seasons. He has gotten little work as a receiver for the Giants. He is likely to play a similar role this season with the Giants with three solid options ahead of him on the depth chart. He is going to have a hard time moving up the depth chart unless injury occurs. Jernigan is a good fit for the slot. He is a small receiver, but a playmaker. He makes plays with the ball in his hands because of his speed and moves in space. His lack of size probably prevents him from starting in this league but should do well in a reserve role in spot duty.

Fantasy Outlook:  
The Giants are deep at receiver, which hurts Jernigan's value. He could get 300 or 400 yards and a few scores. So he isn't worth a draft pick just yet but could in a few years if his role expands.

 #121  Tavarres King CarolinaBye: 4 
 
Player News:
King adds depth to the Broncos receiving corps. He isn't a huge receiver but runs good routes and has plus speed. King will make plays after the catch with his quickness and moves in space. King isn't a very strong receiver, though, and had drop issues in college. King likely opens the season as the No. 4 or 5 receiver for the Broncos.

Fantasy Outlook:  
King has a lot to compete with for playing time, so don't expect much his rookie season. He might get 15 catches for 200 yards and a score. His value goes up in a few seasons if he is able to move up the depth chart.

 #122  Devier Posey Yr: 2012  TDs: 0  Yds: 87  Recpts: 6HoustonBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Posey had a pretty uneventful rookie season that ended during the playoffs because of a torn left Achilles' tendon during the AFC Divisional Round playoff game. Posey had six receptions for 87 yards for the season, which all came the last four weeks of the year. Posey has a chance for a much bigger role with the Texans from day one this season. He could even challenge for a starting job if he has a strong preseason and training camp. Posey is a well-rounded receiver that runs solid routes and knows how to get open. He doesn't have exceptional speed but is quick enough. Posey is a big kid that uses his frame well to shield defenders and get open. He does lack some toughness, though, despite his size and will need to get more physical if he hopes to play a big role with the Texans.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Posey is a wild card. He could get a lot of work or next to nothing. Just expect something in the middle, making him a late-round pick come draft day. He could get around 500 yards and a few scores, filling the role left by Kevin Walter.

 #123  Jerricho Cotchery Yr: 2012  TDs: 0  Yds: 205  Recpts: 17CarolinaBye: 4 
 
Player News:
Cotchery had 17 receptions in 14 games for the Steelers last season. He has fewer than 20 catches each of the past two seasons with the Steelers. He plays in a reserve role with the team, getting few chances. Cotchery hasn't topped 500 yards since 2009. At age 31, a sudden surge in production isn't expected with Cotchery. He is reserve material for NFL teams. Cotchery has just one 1,000-yard season but has four years with 800-plus yards. Cotchery has been a top possession receiver in his career. Cotchery uses his great size and top hands to make all the tough catches, especially over the middle.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Remember, Cotchery has topped 1,000 yards just once for his career and his career high in touchdowns is six. So even when he was at the top of his game, his numbers weren't great for fantasy teams. We wouldn't bother with him on your team at this stage of his career.

 #124  Justin Brown PittsburghBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Brown is a big receiver that can stretch the field because of his size and ability to make the acrobatic catch. He lacks some speed, though, and isn't too physical. Brown also isn't a great route runner. He is more of a deep threat than anything. He'll serve a reserve role with the Steelers his rookie season, serving as the No. 4 or 5 with the team.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Brown might get a few chances to stretch the field but don't expect much. He might get 15 receptions for 200 yards if all goes well.

 #125  Aaron Mellette BaltimoreBye: 8 
 
 #126  Keshawn Martin Yr: 2012  TDs: 0  Yds: 85  Recpts: 10HoustonBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Martin got more work on special teams than anything last season, catching just 10 passes offensively. He did get most of the punt and kick return work all season, though, and performed well in those duties. He should continue to play a similar role this season. He might get a few more chances offensively, though. The Texans have some openings at receiver and Martin is a good fit for the No. 3 role. Martin can be electric with the ball in his hands because of his moves in space and speed. He does well to make big plays on shorter passing routes. Martin isn't much of a blocker, though, and need to sharpen his route running.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Martin can improve his numbers from last season but don't expect a huge surge in production. He might double his output and get around 20 catches for 200 yards. He is more of a help in leagues that reward return yardage.

 #127  Alan Bonner HoustonBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Bonner might take some time to get up to speed with the pro game. He comes from a small college and his overall numbers weren't off the charts. But he has some talent and projects to be a slot receiver in the NFL, a role he could eventually serve with the Texans. Bonner has good speed, moves and runs pretty good routes. He also is a top return man and could serve that role immediately for the Texans. He has upside on special teams.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Bonner seems more likely to help on special teams more than anything. He'll get few chances in the passing game and might catch 10 passes for 120 or so yards

 #128  Louis Murphy Yr: 2012  TDs: 1  Yds: 336  Recpts: 25Tampa BayBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Murphy caught 25 passes in a reserve role for the Panthers last season in a reserve role. He has at least 25 receptions three of the last four seasons. His career high in yards is 609 but he has more than 500 yards two of four years. He heads to the Giants this season to likely serve as their No. 4 or 5 receiver. Murphy is a tall receiver (6-2) but lacks a little strength. He has plus speed and big-play ability. He can turn a short throw into a big play in a hurry. Murphy does have some issues with drops, but has improved in that area some.

Fantasy Outlook:  
A move to New York isn't exactly going to help Murphy's career. He has a lot to compete with for targets in this offense. Don' t expect another season with 500-plus yards. He could post similar numbers to last year, getting around 25 catches for 350 yards with a score or two.

 #129  Marquess Wilson ChicagoBye: 8

 #132  Michael Spurlock Yr: 2012  TDs: 1  Yds: 200  Recpts: 23DetroitBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Spurlock started the season with the Jaguars and played with the team six games before getting released. He was picked up by the Chargers and finished the season with the team. He had 23 receptions for 200 yards and a touchdown between the two teams. He topped 50 yards twice all season. Spurlock has never had more than 20 receptions or 250 yards in a season for his career. He is more of a help on special teams than as a receiver. Spurlock isn't a big receiver, but runs well and has good moves in space. He should continue to get little work as a receiver but help on special teams.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Spurlock isn't going to help fantasy teams with his sporadic workload at receiver. He'll be lucky to notch double-digit receptions again this season.

 #133  Jermaine Kearse Yr: 2012  TDs: 0  Yds: 31  Recpts: 3SeattleBye: 12 
 
 #134  Aldrick Robinson Yr: 2012  TDs: 3  Yds: 237  Recpts: 11WashingtonBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Robinson finally found the field his second season in the league but didn't get a ton of playing time. He caught 11 passes for 237 yards and three touchdowns in 15 games. He made some big plays, averaging 21.6 yards per reception. Robinson was a big-play threat for the Redskins. Robinson could have a little bigger role from day one this year but seems likely to be the No. 4 for the Redskins. He has a lot of competition for playing time. Robinson doesn't have great size or speed but just seems to make plays. He isn't afraid to go over the middle and make the tough catch. Robinson also has solid hands. He lacks some speed, though, and isn't much of a deep threat despite is gaudy per catch numbers for his career.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Robinson seems likely to get a little more playing time but shouldn't have a marquee role with the team. He could get around 30 receptions for 450 yards and a few touchdowns. His value is limited for fantasy teams.

 #135  Devon Wylie Yr: 2012  TDs: 0  Yds: 53  Recpts: 6San FranciscoBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Wylie didn't get much work his rookie season, catching six passes in six games. He did have a hamstring injury that slowed him some but was inactive many weeks even when healthy. He has a new coaching staff in charge this season, so this could be a good thing for Wylie. He could get more chances in a new pass-friendly offense. He is a good fit for the slot. Wylie is very small but runs good routes and makes plays with the ball in his hands. He just does well getting opening and moving the chains. His lack of size hurts his durability, though, which is a concern going forward.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Wylie might get more work this year but probably not enough to be a big help to fantasy teams. He could get 20 or receptions in his current role. He could be a bigger factor in a few seasons if he is able to get consistent work as a No. 3 for the Chiefs, which is possible.

 #136  Griff Whalen IndianapolisBye: 8 
 
 #137  Travis Benjamin Yr: 2012  TDs: 0  Yds: 298  Recpts: 18ClevelandBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Benjamin didn't get much work his rookie year but a few chances, catching 18 passes for 298 yards and two touchdowns. He showed some big-play ability, averaging nearly 17 yard per reception. He also returned a punt for a touchdown and could get more work in the return games going forward. Benjamin projects to be a No. 3 receiver for the Browns and could grab that role this season. 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, which will need to change if he hopes to make a big impact in the NFL.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Benjamin has a little upside in PPR formats. He could have some decent reception totals in what should be a better passing game this season. Benjamin can get around 40 receptions for 500 yards and a few scores.

 #139  Damian Williams Yr: 2012  TDs: 0  Yds: 324  Recpts: 30MiamiBye: 6 
 
Player News:
After starting much of the previous season, Williams found his way into a reserve role once again for the Titans. He didn't get a ton of playing time, catching 30 passes for 324 yards. He failed to top 50 yards in any game last season. His career hasn't exactly taken off since joining the league, topping 500 yards just once in his career. Williams is best suited as a reserve receiver, a role he should serve this season. Williams isn't a flashy receiver, but does a lot of things well. He runs routes at a high level, has some speed and makes plays after the catch.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Williams will get some chances, but probably not enough to help teams outside of deep formats. He might get 25 or so catches for 300 yards and a few scores. His chance to help fantasy teams is much greater when in a starting role, which isn't likely to happen this season.

 #142  Brandon Tate Yr: 2012  TDs: 0  Yds: 211  Recpts: 13CincinnatiBye: 12 
 
Player News:
Tate got a little more work as a receiver his second season with the Bengals but still was more of a factor on special teams than anything. He caught 13 passes for 211 yards last season after failing to catch a pass the previous season. Tate continues to do well as a return man, though, and should continue to get plenty of work in that area. He just hasn't grown much as a receiver, catching 37 passes in four seasons. Tate is a playmaker. He has explosive speed and solid moves in space. His route running remains rough, which hurts his chances to get much work as a receiver.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Tate will get a few chances in the passing game but not many. He is a solid play in leagues that reward return yardage but is a big stretch in those that don't. He'll be lucky to get double-digit receptions.

 #143  Robert Meachem Yr: 2012  TDs: 2  Yds: 207  Recpts: 14New OrleansBye: 7 
 
Player News:
Meachem was a bust in his first season with the Chargers, catching just 14 passes for 207 yards in 15 games. He went several games without a reception after starting the year in the starting lineup. Meachem had three seasons with 40-plus receptions before last season. He has never topped 750 yards in a season, though. At this point, he is reserve material more than anything. He has proved he can't be much of a starter in this league. He can still be a top deep threat, though, and help stretch the field, averaging 16 yards per reception. Meachem is a big receiver with top speed and the ability to stretch the field in a hurry. He still doesn't have the best hands, though, and his route running isn't always crisp.

Fantasy Outlook: Cold
Meachem seemed to have his shot at a breakout season last year but didn't make the most of his chance. He was a huge bust for fantasy teams. Meachem can improve on last season but that isn't saying much. Look for season with around 500 yards and a few scores.

 #146  Greg Salas Yr: 2012  TDs: 0  Yds: 0  Recpts: 0New York JetsBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Salas was traded to the Patriots before last season but didn't get in a game with New England before getting released. The Eagles signed Salas but he didn't play a game with Philly, either. Salas had 27 receptions his rookie season, so he carries some potential. But playing with three teams last season and failing to get in a game isn't a good sign for Salas. He will challenge for a roster spot this season. Salas doesn't wow you in any area, but he makes plays. He runs pretty good routes, has plus hands and is a tough receiver. Salas lacks a little speed and strength but does well in getting open. He also has struggled with drops throughout his career, which doesn't help matters for him to make a roster this year.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Salas took a huge step backwards last season, which is a concern going forward. Don't count on him playing much again this year. Go with safer options come draft day.

 #147  LaVon Brazill Yr: 2012  TDs: 0  Yds: 186  Recpts: 11IndianapolisBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Brazill got a little playing time his rookie season, both offensively and on special teams. He finished with 11 receptions in 15 games. He topped 40 yards twice and his season high in yards was 46. He could have a bigger role offensively this season, though, as he tries to move up the depth chart. He'll compete for the No. 3 or 4 spot with the Colts. Brazill is a smallish receiver that does well in space and with the ball in his hands. He'll make plays because of his speed and moves. Brazill needs a lot of work on his route running and consistency as a receiver.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Brazill can improve on last season but don't expect a huge jump in production. He could about double his stats with more playing time, getting 30 receptions for 400 yards and a few scores. He isn't fantasy material just yet.

 #148  David Reed Yr: 2012  TDs: 0  Yds: 66  Recpts: 5San FranciscoBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Reed had the first receptions of his career last season but caught just five passes in five games. He hasn't been much of a factor at receiver since entering the league, getting most of his work on special teams. But he has a chance to play a bigger role at receiver this season with the Ravens looking for players to step up as their No. 3 and 4 options. Reed will compete for that role. Reed isn't a huge receiver, but has decent speed, good moves and the ability to make the big play. Reed will need to become a better route runner to get consistent playing time, but his ability to make plays could get him on the field eventually.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Reed should get more chances at receiver but remains a reach for fantasy teams. Even if he is the No. 3 receiver for the Ravens, the team doesn't have much of a history of producing good fantasy numbers for those players. Reed could get around 25 receptions for 300 yards and a few scores.

 #149  Joe Webb Yr: 2012  TDs: 0  Yds: 0  Recpts: 0CarolinaBye: 4 
 
Player News:
Webb didn't attempt a pass during the regular season but was forced to start the Vikings playoff game and it was a game to forget for Webb. He struggled mightily throwing the ball, going 11-of-30 for 180 yards and a touchdown with an interception. He did most of his damage on the ground, rushing seven times for 68 yards. Webb's struggles in that game doesn't bode well for his future, though. There are some concerns on whether or not he is worth using as a top NFL backup. He has ability but more so as a runner than a thrower. He has five interceptions to three touchdown passes for his career. He has rushed for 273 yards and four touchdowns, though, in three seasons. He is a top athlete but struggles with accuracy and decision making. He does a poor job of reading defense and hasn't made a whole lot of strides in that department since early in this career.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Webb has fantasy upside if starting but we don't like his chances of finding that starting job. He might have a hard time even serving as a top backup this season. He has made little progress since entering the league.

 #150  Clyde Gates Yr: 2012  TDs: 0  Yds: 224  Recpts: 16New York JetsBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Gates caught on with the Jets last season and set career highs, catching 16 passes in 11 games for 224 yards. He showed a little promise with his work, having two games with 65 or more yards. Gates remains more of a help on special teams, helping the return game, but is trying to make his mark as a receiver. Gates is a big-play threat. He still needs a lot of work on his route running and needs to get bigger but is making strides in both areas. He will compete for a reserve role this season, trying to be the No. 3 or 4 receiver.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Gates could get a few more chances this season, but we doubt he gets enough targets to help fantasy teams. He might get around 30 receptions for 400 yards with a score or two.

 #151  Kris Durham Yr: 2012  TDs: 1  Yds: 125  Recpts: 8DetroitBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Durham was on the practice squad much of the season but got his chance late in the year, catching eight passes for 125 yards and a score in four games with the Lions. He has 11 receptions in two seasons in the NFL. Durham has a chance to move up the depth chart some this season but is expected to be the No. 4 or 5 receiver for the Lions. Durham has good size and athleticism. He does a little bit of everything at receiver. He doesn't excel in one area, but runs solid routes, has decent speed and can make some plays after the catch.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Durham has a chance to get a little more work this season but don't expect much. He could get 300 or 400 yards and a score or two. He isn't worth a draft pick just yet.

 #152  Kevin Ogletree Yr: 2012  TDs: 4  Yds: 436  Recpts: 32DetroitBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Ogletree had his best season as a pro last year, getting a chance for a more prominent role in the Cowboys' offense. He started a few games and was the No. 3 much of the year, finishing with 32 receptions for 436 yards and four touchdowns. His totals were all career highs. He didn't have more than 20 receptions or 200 yards in any season before last year. His breakout season led to a nice contract with the Bucs. He is expected to serve as Tampa's No. 3 receiver this year. Ogletree is a pretty good fit for the slot. He doesn't have great size but pretty good speed and solid hands.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Ogletree can improve a little on last season, having to compete with fewer to targets in the passing game. He still isn't much of a fantasy play, though. He might get 45 receptions for 500 yards and a few scores.

 #153  Tandon Doss Yr: 2012  TDs: 0  Yds: 123  Recpts: 7JacksonvilleBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Doss got a few chances last season but not many in a deep reserve role for the Ravens. He caught seven passes for 123 yards and a touchdown. His season high in yards was just 39. He has a chance for a bigger role in the offense this season, though, competing for the No. 3 receiver spot. Doss has top speed, getting deep in a hurry. He also is a good athlete with size and speed. Doss can be a top big-play threat. He needs to improve his route running and consistency to get more playing time.

Fantasy Outlook: Cold
Doss has a chance to improve his standing with the team and get more targets. Don't expect a huge surge in production but he could get around 400 yards with a few scores. Doss isn't worth a draft pick just yet.

 #154  Jeremy Ebert JacksonvilleBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Ebert didn't get in a game his rookie season, spending his season on the practice squad. A hamstring injury early in camp really derailed his entire rookie season. Ebert has some work to do to earn a role this season.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Ebert could make a team but isn't worth a roster spot just yet. He could be worth grabbing if he moves up the depth chart and starts getting consistent playing time.

 #155  Cobi Hamilton CincinnatiBye: 12 
 
Player News:
Hamilton is a big receiver with good size and strength. He has a good build for the position. He isn't a great route runner at this stage, though, and will struggle with some drops. He has some positives, though, and the Bengals aren't too deep at receiver, so Hamilton could challenge for playing time his rookie season. He could eventually move into a starter's role but probably not for a few more seasons.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Hamilton will get a few chances this year but don't expect a huge role just yet. He could get around 20 receptions for 300 yards and a score or two. Hamilton is a stretch for fantasy teams his rookie season.

 #156  Rishard Matthews Yr: 2012  TDs: 0  Yds: 151  Recpts: 11MiamiBye: 6 
 
Player News:
Matthews got his chances late in the season didn't play too badly, having multiple receptions three straight games to end the season. He finished with 11 receptions for 151 yards in eight games. Matthew is pretty far down the depth chart, though, especially after some new additions at receiver for the Dolphins. Matthews will have a hard time getting much playing time this season as the No. 4 or 5 receiver. He has some upside, though, for the future. He has good strength for the position and can get downfield in a hurry. He runs good routes for a younger player and has room to grow.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Matthews would look better if not for all the new additions at receiver for the Dolphins. But for now, he isn't really worth a roster spot. He could get around 20 receptions for 300 yards with a touchdown. His best days still seem ahead of him.

Player News:
Toon didn't get any action his rookie season but this shouldn't come as a complete surprise. The Saints have in the past brought along their young receivers slowly. The team remains high on Toon and will give him a chance to compete for the No. 3 receiver job this season. The Saints hope he eventually becomes a starter in this offense. Toon is a big receiver with solid hands and the ability to make the tough catch over the middle. He also is a solid deep threat because of his size. Toon does lack some speed, though, and wasn't a huge big-play threat in college.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Toon is worth a late-round pick in this offense. If he gets consistent playing time, he could have some big games along the way. We like him to take a big step forward in production this season, getting 45 or so receptions for around 700 yards with a few scores. Toon could surprise.

 #158  Armanti Edwards Yr: 2012  TDs: 0  Yds: 121  Recpts: 5ClevelandBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Edwards finally got some chances in the passing game last season and made some big plays, catching five passes for 121 yards. He had a long reception of 82 yards, showing his big-play ability. Edwards remains more of a help on special teams than anything, though. He has just 133 total yards in three seasons offensively. He isn't likely to get much more action at receiver this season for the Panthers. Edwards is a former college quarterback trying to make the switch to receiver. He has top speed and athleticism. Edwards needs to sharpen his route running and consistency as a receiver, though. This could be a make or break year for him at the position.

Fantasy Outlook:  
It was good to see him get some receptions last season. He could build on that a little but don't expect much of a jump in chances. He could get around 20 catches for 300 yards with a score or two. Edwards isn't worth a roster spot for fantasy teams.

 #159  Dwayne Harris Yr: 2012  TDs: 0  Yds: 222  Recpts: 17DallasBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Harris got some chances as a No. 3 receiver for the Cowboys last season and didn't do too badly in this role, catching 17 passes for 222 yards the last seven games of the season. He was more of a help on special teams, though, returning a punt for a touchdown and making plays in both the punt and kick return games. He could get first crack at the No. 3 receiver job this season for the Cowboys. Harris seems a good fit for the slot. He isn't a big target, but has good moves in space and does a fine job of getting open on shorter routes. Harris isn't much of a deep threat, though, and lacks a top gear.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Harris should remain a bigger factor on special teams than as a receiver. He should see an uptick in production at receiver and could help fantasy teams in deeper formats. We wouldn't be surprised to see him set career highs across the board, getting 35 or so receptions for 400 yards and a score or two.

 #160  Stephen Burton Yr: 2012  TDs: 1  Yds: 35  Recpts: 5JacksonvilleBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Burton caught five passes in 12 games last season. He has seven receptions in two NFL seasons. This isn't a great sign for Burton since the Vikings needed all sorts of help at receiver the last few seasons. Burton is running out of time in the NFL. He'll compete to be the No. 4 or 5 receiver this season.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Burton might get a few more chances this season but don't expect much. He had a chance to take things up a notch the last few years but didn't come through. You can do better than Burton.

 #161  Malcom Floyd$1  Yr: 2012  TDs: 5  Yds: 814  Recpts: 56San DiegoBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Floyd missed the last two games because of an ankle injury but performed pretty well before the injury. He had more than 800 yards in 14 games. He comes close to a 1,000-yard season if he plays a full season. Floyd has very similar numbers the last four seasons, averaging 45 receptions for 791 yards and four touchdowns per season. Floyd turns 32 shortly before the season but hasn't shown many signs of slowing down just yet. He should remain a starter for the Chargers. Floyd is a top big-play threat, using his size and speed to stretch the field. Floyd is a huge target at 6-5 and a top deep threat in the Chargers pass-happy offense.

Fantasy Outlook: Injury Concern
Floyd isn't a big-time fantasy producer but can help as a No. 3 or 4. He can get around 800 yards and five scores in this offense. He could see a little dip in production getting another year older but he is always capable of that big game.

 #162  Brad Smith Yr: 2012  TDs: 1  Yds: 152  Recpts: 14PhiladelphiaBye: 12 
 
Player News:
Smith found his way into the starting lineup last season because of injury and didn't perform too badly in that role. He had at least two catches three straight games to end the season and scored a touchdown during that stretch. He had just 152-receiving yards for the year, though. He did score three touchdowns (two receiving and one rushing). Smith has rushing touchdowns four straight seasons. He continues to do well in a limited role as a receiver, running back and quarterback. He can do a little bit of everything. Smith is a jack of all trades and a playmaker. He is a top athlete that can play several positions and does them all pretty well. He is a big-play threat every time he touches the ball. The Bills should continue to find ways to get him involved in the offense but in a limited capacity.

Fantasy Outlook: Injury Concern
Smith will get some total yards, but it will be tough to predict when those games will come, which makes him a risk. He might be worth a late flier in deeper leagues. He isn't likely getting enough total yards to help many fantasy teams, though.

 #163  Marcus Easley Yr: 2012  TDs: 0  Yds: 0  Recpts: 0BuffaloBye: 12 
 
Player News:
Easley finally got in some games last year but didn't get a reception. He did get a few chances in the return game but that was it. Easley has battled injury issues since entering the league but was healthy last season, which was a plus. Easley will compete for a roster spot with the Bills. Easley is a big-play threat at receiver, but needs to improve his hands and route running. He is a good athlete, but lacks some consistency.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Easley could be helped with a new coaching staff in place, but we still don't like his chances for a breakout year. He could get around 15 catches for 200 yards.

 #164  Armon Binns Yr: 2012  TDs: 1  Yds: 277  Recpts: 24MiamiBye: 6 
 
Player News:
Binns was supposed to play a bigger role with the Bengals last season but ended up getting cut during the season. He had 18 receptions in eight games before his release. The Dolphins signed him, though, and had six receptions in three games with the Fins. So he had 24 receptions in 11 games last season. Binns is fighting for a roster spot this season. He is assured nothing with a lot more competition for playing time. Binns is a young player with size and decent speed. He has plenty of time to make a name for himself in the NFL but needs to start making plays starting this season. He needs to run better routes and show better hands.

Fantasy Outlook: Injury Concern
Binns is out for the year because of a torn ACL and MCL. Take him off your draft boards.

 #165  Danario Alexander Yr: 2012  TDs: 7  Yds: 658  Recpts: 37San DiegoBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Alexander caught on with the Chargers last season about halfway through the season and found his way into the starting lineup. He produced big numbers the second half of the season and was the top receiver in the Chargers' offense. Alexander set careers highs across the board despite playing just 10 games, catching 37 passes for 658 yards and seven touchdowns. He tops 1,000 yards if he is able to play the full seasons. Alexander had two 100-yard games and two multiple touchdown games. He had six games with 60-plus yards, showing consistency in a starting role. Alexander is productive when playing but has a hard time staying healthy. He has endured numerous knee surgeries and is yet to play a full season. But he produces when playing. You can't deny his talent. Alexander is a huge target with plus speed and the ability to make plays after the catch since he is so hard to bring down. He needs some work on his route running still but has improved some since entering the league. He'll challenge for a starting job this season with the Chargers but won't be handed anything with a new coaching staff on board.

Fantasy Outlook: Injury Concern
Alexander tore his ACL in training camp and is done for the season. Take him off your draft board.

 #166  Arrelious Benn Yr: 2012  TDs: 0  Yds: 26  Recpts: 4PhiladelphiaBye: 12 
 
Player News:
A shoulder injury ended his season early but Benn was getting very little work before the injury. He caught just four passes in eight games, falling way down the Bucs depth chart at receiver. He had fewer than 450 yards in each of his three seasons with the Bucs. Benn gets a change of scenery this year, though, heading to the Eagles after an offseason trade. The Eagles are moving to a wide open, pass-first offense, which could suit Benn well. He'll compete for a No. 3 or 4 receiving job with the team. Benn is good at making plays after the catch because of his size and speed. Benn also has plus hands and runs decent routes but has lacked some consistency since joining the league.

Fantasy Outlook: Injury Concern
Benn tore his ACL in training camp and is done for the season. Take him off your draft boards.

 #167  Plaxico Burress Yr: 2012  TDs: 1  Yds: 42  Recpts: 3PittsburghBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Burress was signed by the Steelers late in the season and served a reserve role with the team, getting little work in the passing game. He caught three passes in four games. Burress has 654 yards the last two seasons. He turns 36 shortly before the season starts, so his days of starting are about over. He is expected to serve a depth role with the team. He has four 1,000-yard seasons as a pro but hasn't hit that mark since 2007. Burress still is a big receiver that can make the tough catch in traffic but lacks the speed to separate and can't be counted on for a huge role anymore.

Fantasy Outlook: Injury Concern
Burress tore his rotator cuff in training camp and is likely to miss the entire season. Take him off your draft boards.

 #168  Ricardo Lockette SeattleBye: 12 
 
Player News:
Lockette didn't get in a game last season, playing on the Seahawks practice squad. He signed with the 49ers after the season and will compete for a roster spot with the team in 2013. Lockette has two career NFL receptions. Lockette has some big-play ability. He has good size for the position and does well stretching the field. Lockette is pretty raw, though, and needs to sharpen his route running to earn more playing time.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Lockette is a reach to make an NFL roster. He could get make a few big plays if given the chance but he isn't worth a roster spot for fantasy teams.

 #169  Joseph Morgan Yr: 2012  TDs: 3  Yds: 379  Recpts: 10New OrleansBye: 7 
 
 #170  Josh Morgan Yr: 2012  TDs: 2  Yds: 510  Recpts: 48WashingtonBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Morgan was a bit of a surprise last season, starting much of the year for the Redskins. He had a decent season, catching 48 passes for 510 yards and two touchdowns. He didn't post big numbers by any means, though, having 50 or more yards just three times. He seems best suited for reserve material at this stage of his career. He has 40 or more receptions for 500-plus yards three of the last four seasons but his season high in yardage is just 698. Morgan hasn't quite lived up to potential but he has talent. Morgan is a big, strong receiver with good athletic ability. He does struggle with some drops at times, but can be a top playmaker when is on his game. He is expected to serve more of a reserve tole this season.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Morgan hasn't emerged as expected, but has some upside for fantasy teams if he gets consistent work. He can get 600 or so yards and a few scores. He might be worth a late-round stash but don't count on him being a consistent producer or sudden breakout candidate.
