Wide Receivers:

The receiver position is a lot more coveted these days, mainly because so many leagues are points per reception (PPR). This makes getting someone like Antonio Brown a big plus for fantasy teams. 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 the Emmanuel Sanders in 2015? There are several breakout candidates, including Jordan Matthews, Martavis Bryant and Brandin Cooks. There are options out there that could break through. The key is to identify them, target a few, get a few for your team, and hope for the best.

Updated: 06/23/15
 #1  Antonio Brown$33  Yr: 2014  TDs: 13  Yds: 1698  Recpts: 129PittsburghBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Brown was first overall in fantasy scoring last season at receiver, having his best season to date. He posted huge numbers on a weekly basis. His lowest yardage total of the season was 72 and his lowest reception total was five, which is pretty unbelievable. Brown had eight 100-yard games and four double-digit reception outings. He was the best receiver in football last season. Brown has two straight seasons with 110 or more receptions and at least 1,499-receiving yards. Brown is the clear top target for the Steelers' offense. Brown has top speed and solid hands. He is good at making plays after the catch, showing explosiveness for the big play. Brown has really improved his route running and is a top possession receiver as well as a big-play threat. He is the complete package at receiver.

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

 #2  Odell Beckham Jr.$32  Yr: 2014  TDs: 12  Yds: 1305  Recpts: 91New York GiantsBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Beckham didn't play the first four games of his rookie season because of a hamstring injury but still managed to have some of the best receiving numbers in all of football. He was a force that couldn't be stopped late in the year. He had four straight 100-yard games to end his season and seven 100-yard games for the season in 12 games. He also scored 12 touchdowns, doing a great job in the red zone. Beckham made some unbelievable catches throughout the season and was clearly the favorite target of quarterback Eli Manning. He is setup to be a star for years to come. Beckham is a top athlete with good speed. He is a great big-play threat that does well after the catch and on the deep ball. He also will make the acrobatic catch. Beckham could still improve his strength some but is a pretty complete receiver besides that.

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

 #3  Julio Jones$31  Yr: 2014  TDs: 6  Yds: 1593  Recpts: 104AtlantaBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Jones missed a game because of injury and scored just six touchdowns but still managed to finish sixth in fantasy scoring at receiver. He produced big numbers, shattering career highs in receptions and yards. It was the first time in his career he finished with more than 100 receptions and 1,500 yards. Jones made some big plays all season, especially down the stretch. Jones had 189 or more yards two of the last four games he played last season. He is the clear top target in the Falcons' offense, an offense that doesn't run a whole lot. Jones is a big target with size and strength. Jones is a physical receiver that runs solid routes and has plus hands. He doesn't have top speed, but proved his first four seasons he can be a home-run threat and run away from defenders. Jones has played a full season just once in four years, making him a bit of an injury risk.

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

 #4  Dez Bryant$31  Yr: 2014  TDs: 16  Yds: 1320  Recpts: 88DallasBye: 6 
 
Player News:
Bryant had his third straight huge season, finishing with a career-high 16 touchdowns. He was a touchdown machine, scoring in all but five games. Bryant also had four 100-yard games and finished with more than 1,300 yards. Bryant has three straight seasons with at least 12 touchdowns and 1,200-receiving yards. He is in the prime of his career as the No. 1 receiver for the Cowboys. Bryant has top speed and a knack for making big plays. He also has great hands, giving him the ability to make some spectacular catches. He has natural ability for the position. Bryant still doesn't have the best attitude on and off the field but this hasn't been a huge issue to date.

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

 #5  Calvin Johnson$31  Yr: 2014  TDs: 8  Yds: 1077  Recpts: 71DetroitBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Johnson had a down year for his standards last year but did miss three games because of injury, hurting his overall numbers. But despite the missed time, Johnson still had a 1,000-yard season and was 17th in fantasy receiver scoring. And Johnson finished the season strong, which is encouraging. He had 100-yard games three of five and touchdowns three of five games. Johnson turns 30 shortly after the start of the season and has shown a few signs of slowing down, but still seems to have plenty left in the tank. He has five straight 1,000-yard seasons and double-digit scores three of five seasons. 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 remains arguably the best receiver in the game right now. Remember, he is double and triple teamed most weeks but continues to produce big numbers.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Johnson saw a dip in production last season but would have been near the top of fantasy scoring at receiver if he plays a full year. He remains an elite fantasy receiver. You have to worry about his health some, missing time each of the last few seasons while playing hurt many other weeks, but don't downgrade him too much because of that. We think he can bounce back this year and is worth grabbing as a top No. 1 for fantasy teams. Expect a season with around 90 receptions and 1,500 yards with 12 touchdowns.

 #6  Demaryius Thomas$30  Yr: 2014  TDs: 11  Yds: 1619  Recpts: 111DenverBye: 7 
 
Player News:
Thomas had his usual huge season, finishing second overall in fantasy scoring at receiver. Thomas had 100-yard games all but six. He finished with more than 1,600 yards and 11 touchdowns. He also eclipsed the 100-reception mark. Thomas had at least four receptions all but a game. Thomas is the top target in the Broncos high-flying offense. The Broncos were a little more conservative with their playing calling late in the year but Thomas still produced with that offense. He had three straight 100-yard games to end his season. Thomas has three straight seasons with 90-plus catches, 1,400-plus yards and double-digit scores. Thomas is a big, physical receiver, but also has top speed, making him a big-play threat whenever the ball is in his hands. He really is the complete package at receiver and should continue to excel in this offense.

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

 #7  Jordy Nelson$29  Yr: 2014  TDs: 13  Yds: 1519  Recpts: 98Green BayBye: 7 
 
Player News:
Nelson had his best season to date last year, finishing with career highs in receptions and yards. And his 13 touchdowns were the second most of his career. Nelson was third in fantasy scoring at receiver. Nelson had seven 100-yard games and at least 53-receiving yards all but a game. He was a model of consistency at the receiver spot. Nelson had at least 1,200-receiving yards three of the past four seasons, serving as the No. 1 receiver for the Packers. Nelson is a good athlete with above-average hands. He makes plays after the catch because of his top speed and moves in space. He will struggle with drops on occasion but has improved in that area and has the trust of Aaron Rodgers, who looks his way often.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Nelson is an elite fantasy receiver that should be a top-five option for fantasy teams. He can lead all of fantasy receivers in scoring, giving him great potential for fantasy teams. Nelson is a good bet to get around 100 receptions for 1,500 yards and 13 or so touchdowns.

 #8  A.J. Green$29  Yr: 2014  TDs: 6  Yds: 1041  Recpts: 69CincinnatiBye: 7 
 
Player News:
Injury issues marred Green's season a little last year but his overall numbers weren't bad despite missing three games. He still had more than 1,000 yards and scored six touchdowns. His numbers would have been near the top of the league in many categories if he doesn't miss those games. Green had five 100-yard games, including a 224-yard performance in Week 14. Green has four straight 1,000-yard seasons to start his career. Green is a playmaker. He has size, speed and runs routes well for such a young player. Green is just reaching his potential as a receiver and is in the prime of his career. He can make a case for being the best receiver in the game.

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

 #9  T Y Hilton$27  Yr: 2014  TDs: 7  Yds: 1345  Recpts: 82IndianapolisBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Despite really missing the last two games (played sparingly the last week), Hilton still had a career season. He had more than 1,300 yards as the Colt No. 1 receiver. Hilton had seven 100-yard games, including a 223-yard showing in Week 6. Hilton was targeted 131 times on the season, getting a ton of weekly looks in the Colts pass-first offense. He remains the top target for the offense for the coming year. Hilton has back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons and is in the prime of his career at age 25. Hilton is a small receiver that lacks some strength and size, but makes up for that with plus hands and big-play ability. Hilton is an explosive player with big-play ability whenever he touches the ball.

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

 #10  Alshon Jeffery$27  Yr: 2014  TDs: 10  Yds: 1133  Recpts: 85ChicagoBye: 7 
 
Player News:
Jeffery took a bit of a step backwards last season but most of it wasn't his fault, as the offense and his quarterback struggled. But even with that said, Jeffery was still 10th in fantasy scoring at receiver and finished with more than 1,000 yards and 10 touchdowns. Jeffery had just three 100-yard games but had more than 70 yards nine of 16 games. He produced pretty good numbers despite the turmoil in Chicago. A new coaching staff and offense should be a good thing for Jeffery this season. He is the No. 1 target in this offense. Jeffery is the complete package. His route running has really improved since entering the league, and Jeffery does a great job of hauling in nearly everything thrown his way. He also is a great deep threat because of his size, speed and leaping ability.

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

 #11  Mike Evans$27  Yr: 2014  TDs: 12  Yds: 1051  Recpts: 68Tampa BayBye: 6 
 
Player News:
Evans had a tremendous rookie receiver, emerging as the top target in the passing game for the Bucs. Despite the Bucs having all sorts of issues at quarterback, Evans still had a 1,000-yard season and scored 12 touchdowns, which was one of the best touchdown totals in all of football. He had three 100-yard games and scored seven of his last nine game of the season. He didn't always produce big yardage numbers but was consistently a top target in the red zone for the Buds. He'll continue to play a big role in the passing game going forward. Evans is a huge target with an enormous wing span. He does a fabulous job of catching the back-shoulder fade. His size and strength makes him a very tough cover in the passing game. He does lack some speed, though, but that didn't hold him back much last season.

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

 #12  Kelvin Benjamin$25  Yr: 2014  TDs: 9  Yds: 1008  Recpts: 73CarolinaBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Benjamin had a great rookie season with the Panthers. He was 16th in fantasy receiver scoring and had a 1,000-yard season. Benjamin finished with nine scores and 73 receptions, getting a whopping 145 targets. Benjamin was sixth in football in targets. He was the No. 1 receiver for the Panthers as a rookie. He should get better with more seasoning as a pro. Benjamin has great size for the receiver position and does a great job of catching nearly everything thrown his way because of his great wingspan. He is a top big-play receiver because of his size and strength, and does well in the red zone. He does lack some top speed, though, and still needs a little work on his route running. Benjamin was a little inconsistent at times his rookie year.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Benjamin is the real deal for fantasy teams. He has a chance to be a top-10 fantasy receiver. We would take him as a low-end No. 1 or top No. 2 for this season. If he played in a better offense, his prospects would be a little better for fantasy teams. But for now, expect around 85 receptions for 1,200 yards and 10 touchdowns.

 #13  Randall Cobb$25  Yr: 2014  TDs: 12  Yds: 1287  Recpts: 91Green BayBye: 7 
 
Player News:
Cobb had a career season, finishing with career highs in receptions, yards and touchdowns. He finally played a full year and produced huge numbers for the Packers. Cobb had five 100-yard games and at least three receptions in every game. He finished with 91 receptions and 12 touchdowns. Cobb was seventh in fantasy scoring at receiver. Cobb isn't a big receiver, but runs solid routes and makes plays in space. He does well in multiple receiver sets, being able to serve several different receivers spots. Cobb has plus hands and just seems to make the big play.

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

 #14  Jordan Matthews$24  Yr: 2014  TDs: 8  Yds: 872  Recpts: 67PhiladelphiaBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Matthews had a solid rookie season, serving as the No. 3 receiver for the Eagles. He might have been No. 3 on the depth chart but was the second most productive receiver on the team. Matthews had three 100-yard games and finished just shy of 900 yards. He also was a top red-zone target, catching eight touchdown passes. He should get more and more work going forward in this offense, possibly grabbing a starting role this coming year. Matthews is a big receiver with good hands. He does a good job of making the acrobatic catch. He lacks a little top speed but remains a good deep threat because of his size and athleticism.

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

 #15  DeAndre Hopkins$24  Yr: 2014  TDs: 6  Yds: 1210  Recpts: 76HoustonBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Hopkins finally had that breakout season, emerging as the No. 1 receiver for the Texans. He should continue to keep that role for this coming season. Hopkins had his first 1,000-yard season last year, finishing with four 100-yard games. He averaged 15.9 yards per reception and scored six touchdowns. And Hopkins had this season getting below-average quarterback play much of the year. Hopkins has good size and strength, and is a good route runner for a young receiver. Hopkins does a good job of making the tough catch. He has a knack for making the big play downfield.

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

 #16  Sammy Watkins$23  Yr: 2014  TDs: 6  Yds: 982  Recpts: 65BuffaloBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Watkins had a decent rookie season, especially if you consider the poor quarterback play he had to deal with most of the year. He had just fewer than 1,000 yards and scored six touchdowns. Watkins had four 100-yard games and showed his big-play ability, averaging 15.1 yards per reception. He is going to be the No. 1 receiver for years to come in Buffalo. Watkins is the complete package at receiver. He is a great athlete with top speed and good hands. He does a great job of turning a short pass into a long play. He has great moves after the catch. Watkins also can stretch the field in a hurry because of his speed. He still needs a little work on his route running but is improving in that area.

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

 #17  Martavis Bryant$21  Yr: 2014  TDs: 8  Yds: 549  Recpts: 26PittsburghBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Bryant made quite an impact his rookie season. He scored eight touchdowns in 10 games and had two 100-yard games. He was an elite red-zone target as a rookie and got starter snaps late in the year. He had just 26 receptions for the year but averaged 21.1 yards per reception. He was a top big-play threat for the Steelers. Bryant has a good chance to emerge as a starter from day one this year. Bryant has a great skill set. He is a tall receiver with top speed and pretty good hands. He certainly looks the part of a top NFL receiver. He could use some help on his route running, especially on shorter routes.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Bryant is ready to take his game to another level this year. He might not get a ton of receptions but has good yardage and touchdown potential in this offense. He might be a low-end No. 2 fantasy receiver before the year is out. We are expecting around 60 receptions for 1,000 yards with 10 or so touchdowns.

 #18  DeSean Jackson$21  Yr: 2014  TDs: 6  Yds: 1169  Recpts: 56WashingtonBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Despite the Redskins' offense being a mess much of the year, Jackson still had a big first season with his new team. He made a ton of big plays, averaging 20.9 yards per reception. Jackson had six 100-yard games and finished with nearly 1,200-receiving yards. He'll continue to play a prominent role in this offense this coming season. Jackson has two straight 1,000-yard seasons and four for his career. Jackson has great speed and the ability to break a big play every time he touches the ball. He also has good hands and does well when getting a chance to carry the ball.

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

 #19  Emmanuel Sanders$21  Yr: 2014  TDs: 9  Yds: 1404  Recpts: 101DenverBye: 7 
 
Player News:
A move to Denver was a great one for Sanders. He had a career season and finished with some of the best numbers in all of football. Sanders had more than 100 receptions and 1,400 yards with nine touchdowns. Sanders had seven 100-yard games and was fifth overall in fantasy scoring at receiver. Sanders should continue to be a huge part of the Broncos passing game. Sanders has top speed and can stretch the field in a hurry. He is a big-play threat in the passing game. Sanders also isn't a bad route runner, making his niche as a legit possession receiver the last few seasons.

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

 #20  Brandin Cooks$21  Yr: 2014  TDs: 3  Yds: 550  Recpts: 53New OrleansBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Cooks was having a productive rookie season for the Saints until breaking his thumb, missing the last six games of the year. Before getting hurt, Cooks had 53 receptions for 550 yards in 10 games. If he plays a full season, Cooks finishes with 85 receptions for 880 yards and five touchdowns. Cooks didn't have a 100-yard game but was getting the touches, having at least three receptions all but a game. He'll continue to be a big part of the Saints passing game this season. Cooks isn't a big receiver but has great speed and moves after the catch. He also has good hands and runs pretty good routes for a young receiver. He seems to be a good fit for the Saints pass-first offense.

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

 #21  Kevin White$20  ChicagoBye: 7 
 
Player News:
The Bears used the first pick in their draft to find the starter opposite Alshon Jeffery. White will get that role from day one for the Bears. He should be a good compliment to Jeffery. White has great speed and can stretch the field in a hurry. He is a top athlete with the knack for making the acrobatic catch. He has great size for the position. He does shy away from contact a little, which is one of the few knocks on White.

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

 #22  Jeremy Maclin$18  Yr: 2014  TDs: 10  Yds: 1318  Recpts: 85Kansas CityBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Maclin finally had that breakout season, serving as the No. 1 receiver for the Eagles high-flying offense. Maclin had his first 1,000-yard season and finished ninth overall in fantasy scoring at receiver. Maclin had more than 1,300 yards and 10 touchdowns. Maclin had at least two catches every game and four 100-yard games. He did have five games with fewer than 50 yards, but we pretty consistent much of the season. Maclin is a big-play receiver. He has top speed and a knack for making big plays. Maclin is a much improved route runner and does a great job of making plays after the catch. Maclin also does well in finding the end zone, having two double-digit touchdown seasons. He does have a bit of an injury history but played a full season last year and looked great in the process.

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

 #23  Michael Floyd$18  Yr: 2014  TDs: 6  Yds: 841  Recpts: 47ArizonaBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Floyd didn't build on his big second season, struggling some last season. He had 841 yards and six touchdowns. But in fairness to Floyd, he had 100-yard games two of three to start the season. He was playing pretty well before Carson Palmer was injured. Life without Palmer didn't treat Floyd too well. A healthy solid starting quarterback should help Floyd's production this season. He is in just his fourth season in the league and had a 1,000-yard year his second NFL season. Floyd is a good compliment to fellow starter Larry Fitzgerald. Floyd has good size and speed at receiver. Floyd runs good routes and does a good job of getting downfield in a hurry. Floyd also has good hands and the knack for the big play.

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

 #24  Brandon LaFell$17  Yr: 2014  TDs: 7  Yds: 953  Recpts: 74New EnglandBye: 4 
 
Player News:
A move to New England was just the thing for LaFell to jumpstart his career. He had his best season to date, topping 700 yards for the first time in his career. He finished just shy of his first 1,000-yard season, needing 47 yards to hit the mark. LaFell had two 100-yard games and more than 50 yards 10 of 16 games. He proved he can be a consistent NFL starter after posting very mediocre numbers during his days with the Panthers. LaFell is a big receiver with pretty good speed and soft hands. LaFell has some consistency issues, but helped put those concerns behind him last season He is more of a possession receiver than deep threat despite some gaudy yards per reception totals for his career.

Fantasy Outlook:  
LaFell was kind of under the radar last season but became a pretty good fantasy receiver before the end of the season. Remember, he wasn't really a factor offensively the first two games of the year but still finished just shy of 1,000 yards. If he starts from day one this season, which seems likely, LaFell can have his first 1,000-yard season, making him a No. 2 for fantasy teams.

 #25  Terrance Williams$15  Yr: 2014  TDs: 8  Yds: 621  Recpts: 37DallasBye: 6 
 
Player News:
Williams did a good job of finding the end zone last season but didn't get a ton of catches or yards. He finished with fewer than 650 yards and failed to hit the 100-yard mark in any game. Williams found the end zone eight times, though, and averaged 16.8 yards per reception. He made some big plays when given the chance. Williams should continue to be the No. 2 receiver for the Cowboys this season. Williams is a big, strong receiver that does a great job of stretching the field. He is a top deep threat. Williams isn't great on shorter routes just yet but improving in that area. He also needs to improve his hands but is also making strides with that.

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

 #26  Golden Tate$15  Yr: 2014  TDs: 4  Yds: 1331  Recpts: 99DetroitBye: 9 
 
Player News:
A move to Detroit was a good one for Tate, who enjoyed a career season last year. Tate posted outstanding numbers, finishing a catch shy of 100 while racking up 1,331-receiving yards. The only blemish on his season was a lack of scores, finishing with just four. But even with the low scores, Tate was still 12th in fantasy scoring at receiver. He had five 100-yard games, doing a great job opposite Calvin Johnson. Tate isn't exceptional in any one area, but does well across the board and is a playmaker. He makes things happen with the ball in his hands. Tate has good moves in space and a knack for moving the chains, making him a good fit for the middle of the field.

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

 #27  Eric Decker$12  Yr: 2014  TDs: 5  Yds: 962  Recpts: 74New York JetsBye: 5 
 
Player News:
As expected, Decker saw a dip in production away from Denver. His overall numbers weren't too bad with the Jets, though. He padded his stats with a 10-catch, 221-yard game the last game of the year but started to produce better late in the year, which is encouraging. He had 100-yard games two of his last three to end the year. Decker was 38 yards shy of a 1,000-yard season but produced decent numbers despite poor quarterback play much of the year. Decker has good size (6-3) and strength, giving him the ability to stretch the field. Decker doesn't have top speed but still enough to make plenty of big plays. He does a great job of using his size to his advantage. Decker is a playmaker, especially in the red zone. Decker will drop some passes, though.

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

 #28  Mike Wallace$12  Yr: 2014  TDs: 10  Yds: 862  Recpts: 67MinnesotaBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Wallace had another up and down season with the Dolphins but at least did a great job of finding the end zone. He finished with 10 touchdowns, helping him to finish 20th overall in fantasy scoring at receiver. But on the flip side, Wallace had fewer than 900-receiving yards and caught 67 passes. He had just one 100-yard game all season. Wallace has two 1,000-yard seasons in his career but has three straight seasons with fewer than 950 yards. He hasn't been nearly as consistent in recent years. Wallace has great speed and the ability to make a big play every time the ball is in his hands (averages 15.6 yards per catch for his career). His route running still isn't top notch but improved. Wallace also has good hands and a knack for making the big play. He moves to the Vikings this year, getting a chance to start for his new team.

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

 #29  Amari Cooper$12  OaklandBye: 6 
 
Player News:
Cooper was the first receiver taken in this year's draft and with good reason. He should be the top target for the Raiders passing game for years to come. He is the complete package at receiver. Cooper gets in and out of his breaks with great speed. He makes a lot of plays downfield but also can be a top possession receiver because of his great hands. He has good strength for the position but doesn't play overly physical. He might need to toughen up a tad in the NFL but should with time.

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

 #30  Keenan Allen$12  Yr: 2014  TDs: 4  Yds: 783  Recpts: 77San DiegoBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Allen was having a so-so season before breaking his collarbone, missing the last two games of the year. He had 77 receptions, which is solid, but just 783 yards and four touchdowns. Allen didn't make many big plays last season and was a dud in the red zone. He had three 100-yard games but also seven games with fewer than 50 yards. Allen was erratic as the No. 1 receiver for the Chargers. Allen is plenty young enough to get it going again, though. He remains the top target in this offense. Allen runs good routes and does a good job of just getting open. He is capable of turning a short play into a big one because of his quickness and moves in space. His hands were a concern entering his rookie season, but Allen really alleviated those concerns the last two seasons.

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

 #31  Charles Johnson$11  Yr: 2014  TDs: 2  Yds: 475  Recpts: 31MinnesotaBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Johnson had a productive second season in the league, becoming a starter for the Vikings late in the year. He had multiple receptions seven straight games to end the season. He had three games with 70-plus yards and scored two touchdowns during that stretch. He should start from day on this season for the Vikings, pairing with Mike Wallace as the starting receivers. Johnson has a lot of ability at the receiver spot. He has plus speed, runs good routes for a young player and has plenty of big-play ability. His hands are a little inconsistent but should improve on that over time.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Johnson really seems setup for a breakout season in an emerging passing game. He was a favorite target late in the season and produced with his chances. He has a chance for a 1,000-yard season if all goes well for him. He could get around 80 receptions for 1,000 yards with seven touchdowns, making him a low-end No. 2 for fantasy teams.

 #32  DeVante Parker$11  MiamiBye: 5 
 
Player News:
The Dolphins used their first-round pick in this year's draft on Parker, hoping to find their No. 1 receiver for years to come. He should start from day one of his rookie season. Parker is a big target that does a great job of stretching the field and making the acrobatic catch. He is a playmaker. Parker could sharpen his route running some, but should get better in that area with more experience.

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

 #33  Torrey Smith$10  Yr: 2014  TDs: 11  Yds: 767  Recpts: 49San FranciscoBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Smith had the lowest yardage totals of his career last season but had a career-high 11 touchdowns. He made big plays and was a top target in the red zone. Smith didn't have a 100-yard game all season, though, and his season high in yards was 98. Smith didn't reach 100 targets on the season, breaking a streak of two straight seasons with 100-plus targets. Smith is one of the top deep threats in the game. Smith has elite speed and can stretch the field in a hurry. He still needs some work on his route running to become a complete player but is getting better in this area. Smith has pretty good hands and a knack for the spectacular play.

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

 #34  Vincent Jackson$10  Yr: 2014  TDs: 2  Yds: 1002  Recpts: 70Tampa BayBye: 6 
 
Player News:
The Bucs' offense was a mess last year, especially at quarterback, but Jackson had another 1,000-yard season. He finished with just more than 1,000 yards and 70 receptions. He did finish with just two touchdowns, though, which was unusual for Jackson. He didn't make quite as many big plays last year, having just three 100-yard games. Jackson has four straight 1,000-yard seasons. Jackson is 32 years old but hasn't lost much, especially if you consider his best numbers as a pro have come the last few seasons. Jackson has 1,000-yard seasons six of the last seven years but has never had double-digit touchdowns. Jackson is a big receiver with good leaping ability and plus speed. He isn't an elite route runner but has improved in this area through the years.

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

 #35  Kendall Wright$9  Yr: 2014  TDs: 6  Yds: 715  Recpts: 57TennesseeBye: 4 
 
Player News:
Wright didn't follow his breakout season as expected. He missed a couple games with injury and finished with about 300 fewer yards. He did set a career high in touchdowns with six, though. Wright wasn't helped by erratic quarterback play, which hurt his numbers some. Wright had just one 100-yard games and topped 50 yards seven of 14 games. Wright is the best receiver in this offense and is a former 1,000-yard guy, so expect him to get plenty of targets this year. If the offense and quarterback play improves, expect Wright to have much better production. Wright isn't a big receiver but a big-play threat. He does a great job of turning a short throw into a long play. But he just isn't a big-play threat, becoming a very good route runner the past few seasons. Wright can be a dynamic player. He lacks some size, though. He can have a little trouble when corners try to get physical with him.

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

 #36  Andre Johnson$9  Yr: 2014  TDs: 3  Yds: 936  Recpts: 85IndianapolisBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Johnson had a bit of a down year for his standards but still produced alright, especially if you consider the Texans quarterback situation was a mess last year. Johnson still managed 85 receptions, giving him at least 85 catches six of seven seasons. Johnson had just one 100-yard game last year, which came the last week of the season. He has seven 1,000-yard seasons for his career and a move to Indy could be just the thing to get his career jumpstarted even at age 34. 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 is going to hit the wall sooner than later, so he brings some risk to fantasy teams. Even with that said, he is worth grabbing as a low-end No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in this Colts' offense. He'll get his targets and will have some big games. Expect a season with around 85 receptions for 1,000 yards and seven or so scores.

 #37  Larry Fitzgerald$9  Yr: 2014  TDs: 2  Yds: 784  Recpts: 63ArizonaBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Fitzgerald failed to hit the 1,000-yard mark for the third straight season. He did miss two games because of injury but still wouldn't have hit the mark if playing a full season. Fitzgerald had two 100-yard games and just two touchdowns. The good news is he was targeted 103 times during the season. Injury to Carson Palmer wasn't a positive for the Cardinals passing game, hurting Fitzgerald's numbers. Fitzgerald turns 32 before the start of the season, but still seems to have plenty left in the tank. He remains a top target in the offense. Fitzgerald doesn't have elite speed, but runs great routes and has plus hands. He is as athletic as any receiver in the game and just has a knack for getting open.

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

 #38  Jarvis Landry$8  Yr: 2014  TDs: 5  Yds: 758  Recpts: 84MiamiBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Landry was a rookie last year but the most dependable receiver for the Dolphins. He did a great job out of slot, catching more than 80 passes. Landry had at least three receptions in all but the first game of the year. Landry also had 50 or more yards five of the last six games to end his season. Landry didn't do a bad job of finding the end zone, scoring five times. Landry is going to be a big part of this offense for years to come. Landry isn't a big target but runs good routes and has solid hands. He isn't the biggest receiver but is a tough kid that will fight for every inch. Landry might not have the elite speed to play on the outside but is an ideal fit for the slot.

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

 #39  Allen Robinson$7  Yr: 2014  TDs: 2  Yds: 548  Recpts: 48JacksonvilleBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Robinson missed the last six games of his rookie season because of a stress fracture in his foot but had a productive season before the injury. He was emerging as a dependable target in the passing game for the Jaguars. Robinson had 50-plus yards in all but three of the games he played. If Robinson plays a full season, he finishes with 77 receptions for 877 yards and three touchdowns, which is not too shabby for a rookie in this offense. Robinson should challenge for a chance to start from day one this year or at least serve as the No. 3 for the Jaguars. Robinson has decent size for the position and is a good deep threat because of his height and athleticism. He can really jump and make the tough catch. He does struggle with some drops and could use some help with his route running.

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

 #40  Kenny Stills$6  Yr: 2014  TDs: 3  Yds: 931  Recpts: 63MiamiBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Stills took a good jump his second season in the league, finishing 69 yards shy of a 1,000-yard season. He had two 100-yard games and nine games with 50-plus yards. He was the second best option in the passing game many weeks for the Saints. He head to a little less prolific passing game in Miami but should start for his new team, getting plenty of targets. Stills is a good athlete with quickness and the knack for making the tough catch. And while he lacks some size, Stills is a good deep threat because of his speed and quickness. He will drop some easy passes, though, and lacks a little consistency at this stage of his career.

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

 #41  Nelson Agholor$6  PhiladelphiaBye: 8 
 
Player News:
The Eagles took Agholor in the first round of this year's draft. He becomes a starter for the team and should be a good fit for the offense. He has good hands and does well in making plays after the catch. He does a good job of getting open, finding the soft spot in coverages. He does lack a little size for the position, though, and could struggle a little to adjust to the size and speed of the pro game. Agholor also could help in the return game as a top return man for the Eagles.

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

 #42  Dorial Green-Beckham$6  TennesseeBye: 4 
 
Player News:
Green-Beckham didn't play a snap last year but that didn't prevent the Titans from using a second-round pick on the talented receiver. He'll get a chance to move into a starting role for the Titans his rookie season. Green-Beckham is a supremely talented player. He has great size and strength but also possesses surprising speed for a man of his size. He catches the ball well and has all the tools to be a top receiver in the league. He dropped to the second round of the draft, though, because of several off the field concerns. Green-Beckham has plenty of talent but also plenty of baggage.

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

 #43  Breshad Perriman$5  BaltimoreBye: 9 
 
Player News:
The Ravens used a first-round pick on Perriman, hoping to have found a starter in their offense for years to come. He should start from day one this season and serve as the top deep threat for the team. Perriman has good speed and size, doing a great job of making plays downfield. He is a big-play threat at receiver and should get plenty of chances to stretch the field this season. He needs to sharpen his route running, though, to be a more complete receiver at this level.

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

 #44  Roddy White$5  Yr: 2014  TDs: 7  Yds: 921  Recpts: 80AtlantaBye: 10 
 
Player News:
White wasn't a huge big-play threat last season but still caught a lot of passes and was an asset offensively for the Falcons. White finished with 80 receptions and seven touchdowns. He did have fewer than 1,000-yards, though, and just two 100-yard games all season. White is starting to show some signs of decline at age 33. White has failed to top 1,000 yards two straight seasons after six straight seasons of reaching that mark. He is more of a possession receiver at this stage of his career. 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.

Fantasy Outlook:  
You have to worry some about White breaking down, especially after the past two seasons. You can't draft him based on his name. He still produces some but isn't the elite option of past seasons. He is more of a low-end No. 2 or top No. 3 for fantasy teams. White can get around 70 receptions for 900 yards and six or so scores.

 #45  Eddie Royal$3  Yr: 2014  TDs: 7  Yds: 778  Recpts: 62ChicagoBye: 7 
 
Player News:
Royal had the most receptions and yards of his career since his rookie season. Royal had 80 or more yards four games and 10 games with three or more receptions. He was an ideal No. 3 receiver for the Chargers. Royal also has been a top red-zone target for the team the past few seasons, scoring 15 touchdowns the past two years. Royal is a dependable possession receiver. He has top speed and good hands. Royal makes things happen with the ball in his hands. He heads to Chicago this season to serve as their No. 3 receiver. He has played with Jay Cutler in the past and produced some decent numbers in a similar offensive system.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Royal has posted similar numbers the past two seasons so expect more of the same this year, even with a move to a new team. He is a decent spot starter for fantasy teams. He has good touchdown potential and will get his receptions. Expect around 55 receptions for 700 yards and six or seven touchdowns.

 #46  Brandon Marshall$3  Yr: 2014  TDs: 8  Yds: 721  Recpts: 61New York JetsBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Marshall missed the last three games of the season because of a rib injury but wasn't having his usual season before the injury. He had just two 100-yard games and was set to finish with around 1,000 yards. His numbers were down compared to past seasons, but the Bears' offense was a mess much of the year, especially at the quarterback spot. This didn't help the numbers of Marshall. One positive for Marshall was he scored eight touchdowns in 13 games. Marshall had seven straight 1,000-yard seasons before last year. He has five seasons with 100-plus receptions, producing as well as most receivers in football the last several seasons. Marshall is 31 years old and has a lot of mileage on his body but hasn't shown many signs of slowing down just yet. He can still serve as a top starter, a role his new team, the Jets, will want him to hold this season. Marshall is a huge target with great hands. Marshall makes a ton of plays after the catch, which is amazing for a receiver of his size. He is tough to bring down once the ball is in his hands because of his size.

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

 #47  Julian Edelman$3  Yr: 2014  TDs: 4  Yds: 972  Recpts: 92New EnglandBye: 4 
 
Player News:
Edelman had his second straight huge season as the most productive wide receiver for the Patriots. He caught 92 passes and finished 28 yards shy of a 1,000-yard season despite missing a couple games because of injury. Edelman has 197 receptions the past two seasons. He should continue to be the top possession receiver for the Patriots. Edelman is a small target, but has good speed and hands. He does well on crossing routes and makings plays after the catch. Tom Brady trusts him in the passing game and throws his way often, especially when he needs to move the chains.

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

 #48  Pierre Garcon$2  Yr: 2014  TDs: 3  Yds: 752  Recpts: 68WashingtonBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Garcon had an erratic season, seeing a big dip in production from the previous year. He had just one 100-yard game and finished with fewer than 800-receiving yards. He did have three games with nine or more receptions, though, and had 105 targets on the season. He did lose out on work to DeSean Jackson, who emerged as the top target and big-play threat in the offense. Garcon isn't a polished route runner, but has certainly improved over the years. He has great speed and is a top deep threat. Garcon also does a good job of making big plays on shorter routes, using his speed to get by defenders.

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

 #49  Percy Harvin$2  Yr: 2014  TDs: 1  Yds: 483  Recpts: 51BuffaloBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Harvin's season didn't go quite as expected, getting dealt to the Jets during the season. The Seahawks weren't thrilled with his production and his attitude on the field and in the locker room, leading to team parting ways. Harvin finished the season with 51 receptions for 483 yards and a touchdown. He made his biggest impact rushing the ball, carrying it 33 times for 202 yards and a touchdown. So Harvin finished the season with a respectable 685 total yards. Harvin hasn't lived up to his potential to date. He is yet to have a 1,000-yard receiving season and played a full season just once in his career. Harvin certainly has potential, though. He 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 in the past, but he seems to be over those issues for now. He'll look to get his career going in the right direction this season, serving as a starter for the Bills.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Harvin is a hard guy to trust for fantasy teams. He has injury concerns and hasn't produced near his capabilities throughout his career. But even with that said, he has the potential to do great things if all breaks his way. He is worth grabbing as a low-end No. 3 or 4 fantasy receiver. He can get around 1,000 total yards and five or six touchdowns.

 #50  Marques Colston$2  Yr: 2014  TDs: 5  Yds: 902  Recpts: 59New OrleansBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Colston failed to hit the 1,000-yard mark for the second straight season. The good news is he played every game. The bad news is his yardage total was his lowest since 2008. Colston had two 100-yard games but fewer than 50 yards six times. He was a little more inconsistent, showing a few signs of slowing down. This shouldn't be a surprise, though, because Colston has endured a few surgeries and is now 32 years old. His days of being the go-to receiver might be nearing an end. 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.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Colston isn't an exciting fantasy option but consistent. He won't win games single handily for fantasy teams but provide consistent weekly production in this offense. He is worth grabbing as a No. 3 or 4 fantasy receiver. He should be able to finish with similar numbers to last year, maybe even improving his touchdown totals some. Look for a season with around 60 receptions for 900 yards and six touchdowns.

 #51  Victor Cruz$2  Yr: 2014  TDs: 1  Yds: 337  Recpts: 23New York GiantsBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Cruz suffered a serious injury last year, tearing his patellar tendon in his right knee. He played six games before the injury. Cruz had two 100-yard games before going down. Cruz has a long road back. Most consider this injury tougher to return from than a torn ACL. Cruz might not be 100 percent or his usual self for another year or two, or maybe even ever. The good news is Cruz is 28 years old and didn't have a history of injury before this one. When healthy, Cruz is a big-play threat with the ball in his hands. Cruz isn't a huge target but runs routes well and has plus hands. He can take a short pass and make it a big play in a hurry.

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

 #52  Anquan Boldin$2  Yr: 2014  TDs: 5  Yds: 1062  Recpts: 83San FranciscoBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Boldin had his second straight 1,000-yard season with the 49ers. He led the way at receiver for the team, catching 83 passes. Boldin had just one 100-yard game but was pretty consistent all season, having 12 games with 50 or more yards. Boldin is 34 years old and you have to think he will slow down sooner or later. But until that happens, he'll continue to start. Boldin is a big, strong receiver. He isn't a speed demon, but runs good routes and has solid hands.

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

 #53  Jaelen Strong$1  HoustonBye: 9 
 
Player News:
The Texans added a big, strong physical receiver in this year's draft, taking Strong in the third round. Strong has good hands and is a big target at receiver. He lacks some elite speed, though, and could improve his route running a little. Strong has a good chance to start from day one his rookie season but won't be handed the job.

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

 #54  Kenny Britt$1  Yr: 2014  TDs: 3  Yds: 748  Recpts: 48St LouisBye: 6 
 
Player News:
Britt had his best season in a few years, serving as the No. 1 receiver for the Rams. He didn't have a career year but finished with his second best yardage total. He did set a career high in receptions, catching 48 passes. Britt averaged 15.6 yards per reception and had two 100-yard games. He showed he can still be a capable starter in the NFL. He should have a starting job again this season. Britt is a big target that runs good routes and is capable of making a big-play in a hurry. He 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. He also has never topped 800 yards in a season.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Britt made strides last year but still wasn't a big-time fantasy threat. It would surprise to see him post his best numbers to date this year but that isn't saying a whole lot. He is more reserve material for fantasy teams than anything. He'll get around 60 receptions for 900 yards and five or so touchdowns.

 #55  Michael Crabtree$1  Yr: 2014  TDs: 4  Yds: 698  Recpts: 68OaklandBye: 6 
 
Player News:
Crabtree had a disastrous season last year, failing to hit the 100-yard mark in any game while finishing with fewer than 700-receiving yards. The 49ers passing game struggled much of the season, though, which didn't help Crabtree. He had less than 50 yards four of five games to end the season, a fitting end to his poor season. Crabtree has flashed some great things at times throughout his career but hasn't had that huge season. He has just one 1,000-yard season in his career and never scored double-digit touchdowns. Crabtree probably is more of a top No. 2 receiver than No. 1 for NFL teams, a role he should serve with the Raiders this season. Crabtree is a pretty polished receiver at this stage of his career. Crabtree has plus hands, runs solid routes and is a playmaker. He doesn't have elite speed, but enough to get the job done.

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

 #56  Doug Baldwin$1  Yr: 2014  TDs: 3  Yds: 825  Recpts: 66SeattleBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Baldwin had his best season as a pro last year, serving as the No. 1 receiver for the Seahawks much of the year. He set career highs in receptions and yards. Baldwin had just three touchdowns but managed 825-receiving yards. He had two 100-yard games and at least two catches every game of the year. Baldwin should continue to have a starting role for the Seahawks this season. He knows the offense well and has a solid rapport with quarterback Russell Wilson. Baldwin isn't a big target but has big-play potential because of his speed and moves in space. He does well out of the slot and is a dependable receiver for the offense. He has at least 770 yards three of four seasons with the Seahawks.

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

 #57  John Brown$1  Yr: 2014  TDs: 5  Yds: 696  Recpts: 48ArizonaBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Brown was a weekly contributor for the Cardinals his rookie season, serving as the No. 3 receiver most of the season. He had at least two receptions all but a game and more than 50 yards seven of 16 games. He made some big plays offensively for the Cardinals, scoring five touchdowns on 48 receptions. He should continue to be the No. 3 receiver for the Cardinals this season and even get some looks in two-receiver sets. Brown is a small receiver but has great speed and moves in space. He is a top playmaker at the receiver position. Brown also is an asset on special teams as a return man.

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

 #58  Cody Latimer$1  Yr: 2014  TDs: 0  Yds: 23  Recpts: 2DenverBye: 7 
 
Player News:
Latimer didn't get many chances his rookie season, catching just two passes. He could play his way into a bigger role this year, though. Latimer is a big receiver with good strength and hands. He is a bit raw as a route runner and lacks some elite speed. He will try to be the No. 3 receiver for the Broncos this season. The team remains very high on Latimer and believe he can be a big-time player in this league.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Latimer would have looked better in last year's offense but still has potential for a breakout season. Just temper your expectations for him a little. He'll have some big games and finish with around 60 catches for 800 yards with five or so scores. He is worth a look as a No. 3 or 4 receiver.

 #59  Cecil Shorts III Yr: 2014  TDs: 1  Yds: 557  Recpts: 53HoustonBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Shorts had a bit of a disappointing season with the Jaguars, seeing his numbers dip for the second straight season. He did miss three games because of injury but wasn't doing a whole lot even with those missed games. Shorts had two 100-yard games but 10 games with fewer than 50 yards. He had less than 600 yards for the season. Shorts is at a bit of a crossroads in his career, seeing his numbers decline instead of get better. He has enjoyed some past success, though, and should help as a No. 2 or 3 receiver with the Texans. Shorts doesn't really have any outstanding skills, but makes the most of his ability. He runs above-average routes, has decent speed and pretty good hands. He has a knack for making the big play at receiver.

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

 #60  Justin Hunter Yr: 2014  TDs: 3  Yds: 498  Recpts: 28TennesseeBye: 4 
 
Player News:
Hunter was expected to take a big step forward last season but that wasn't the case. He once again battled consistency issues, finishing with weekly numbers all over the map. He also missed the last four games of the season with a lacerated spleen but should be just fine for the coming year. Hunter didn't have a 100-yard game last year but did have 99 yards during a game and scored three touchdowns. He was a big-play threat, averaging 17.8 yards per reception. Hunter will get his chance to start this season but needs to show more consistency to win that job. He won't be handed anything. Hunter is a big, tall receiver that does a good job of stretching the field. Hunter has speed, size and can separate in a hurry. He will drop some passes, though, and isn't very physical.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Hunter can improve on last season but nothing is a given with him after last year. He is worth a late-round grab because of his talent, though. He could get around 50 receptions for 800 yards and five touchdowns.

 #61  Allen Hurns Yr: 2014  TDs: 6  Yds: 677  Recpts: 51JacksonvilleBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Hurns was a big surprise for the Jaguars, emerging as one of the most reliable targets in the passing game his rookie season. Hurns was an undrafted rookie, so his impact was expected to be minimal, which wasn't the case. Hurns had two 100-yard games and finished 23 yards shy of 700-receiving yards. He also scored six touchdowns, having two multiple touchdown games. Hurns should compete for a No. 2 or 3 receiver job this season. He is a big target with good speed and big-play ability. His route running needs to continue to get better, but Hurns is making strides in that area. Hurns also needs to show better consistency with his hands.

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

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

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

 #63  Brian Hartline Yr: 2014  TDs: 2  Yds: 474  Recpts: 39ClevelandBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Hartline wasn't a very big part of the Dolphins' offense last year. He had two straight 1,000-yard seasons before last year, failing to even get to 500 yards. He was targeted just 63 times all season. Hartline had 50 or more yard just four times and went three games without even catching a pass. Hartline has been a productive receiver in the past and should get his chance to return to a starting lineup, signing with the Browns this offseason. Hartline has good size, toughness and pretty good hands. He runs routes well and has enough speed to stretch the field, but lacks some explosiveness. He will make some big plays, though, and seems to have the knack for the big game.

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

 #64  Andrew Hawkins Yr: 2014  TDs: 2  Yds: 824  Recpts: 63ClevelandBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Hawkins had a career season last year, his first with the Browns. He was the most dependable receiver for the team and got plenty of chances, finishing the year with 112 targets. He had more than 800 yards and caught 63 passes. Hawkins had seven games with 70 or more yards. He did score just two touchdowns all season, though, getting few looks in the red zone. The Browns will continue to have Hawkins as a big part of the offense this coming season. He likely will get most of his work out of the slot, serving as a top possession receiver for the team. Hawkins is a small target but makes plays in space and has a knack for getting open. His small stature likely prevents him from being an ideal starter but makes him an ideal player for the slot.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Hawkins has more value in PPR formats but can help some in standard leagues. He'll get his yards and should see his touchdowns improve in what should be a better offense. Consider him a No. 4 or 5 fantasy receiver. He can get around 70 receptions for 900 yards and four or five touchdowns.

 #65  Dwayne Bowe Yr: 2014  TDs: 0  Yds: 754  Recpts: 60ClevelandBye: 11 
 
Player News:
The Chiefs had a conservative offense once again last season but Bowe wasn't great when he got his chances. He failed to score a touchdown all season and didn't hit the 100-yard mark in any game. Bowe had fewer than 801-receiving yards for the third straight season. Bowe has three 1,000-yard seasons for his career but hasn't neared that production in recent years. And at age 31 (shortly after the season starts), you have to wonder if he'll ever achieve that amount of success once again. He'll get a chance to revive his career with the Browns, likely serving as their top target in the passing game. 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 probably will have better fantasy numbers this year with the Browns but that isn't saying much. Remember, he failed to score a touchdown last season. But even with that said, he isn't anything more than a reserve for fantasy teams. Don't expect him to repeat big numbers from earlier in his career. He might get around 75 catches for 900 yards with a few scores.

 #66  Marquess Wilson Yr: 2014  TDs: 1  Yds: 140  Recpts: 17ChicagoBye: 7 
 
Player News:
Wilson had a lost season last year because of a collarbone injury. He didn't play until Week 11 and had just 17 receptions all season. Wilson is going to get his chance this year, though, serving as the No. 3 receiver for the Bears. Wilson is a tall receiver with speed and big-play ability. He lacks a little strength, which is a concern, but is stronger than when he came into the league.

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

 #67  Steve Johnson Yr: 2014  TDs: 3  Yds: 435  Recpts: 35San DiegoBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Johnson had two games with more than 50 yards, including a 103-yard showing in Week 3, but did next to nothing besides those games. He did miss some time late in the year because of a knee injury, but had just 435 yards in 13 games. Johnson has fewer than 600 yards each of the past two seasons. His career is trending the wrong direction. He will get a chance to resurrect things this year in San Diego, getting a chance to start or serve as the No. 3 receiver for his new team. Johnson is 29 years old and seems to have lost a little in recent years. He is a former 1,000-yard season with plenty of past success but hasn't achieved much in recent seasons, which is a concern. Johnson has decent size for the receiver spot. He runs well, makes the tough catch and is a big-play threat. He does struggle with some key drops at times.

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

 #68  Devin Smith New York JetsBye: 5 
 
Player News:
The Jets continued to overhaul their receiver position with the selection of Smith in the second round of this year's draft. Smith isn't going to start this year but should be the No. 3 and top deep threat for the team. He projects as a starter for the team in another season or two. Smith is a great deep threat, using his athletic ability and great hands to make plays down the field. He does need to shore up his route running some to be a legit starter in this league.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Smith isn't going to produce big numbers in his current role. He will get some chances but not a ton as the No. 3 for the Jets. He might be worth a reserve pick for fantasy teams but that is about it. He should get around 50 catches for 800 yards and four or five touchdowns.

 #69  Brian Quick Yr: 2014  TDs: 3  Yds: 375  Recpts: 25St LouisBye: 6 
 
Player News:
Quick was off to a promising start to his season before injuring his shoulder, causing him to miss the rest of the year. But before getting injured in Week 8, Quick had three touchdowns and three games with 70-plus yards. He was the most dependable receiver for the Rams early in the year. If he plays a full season, Quick finishes with 57 receptions for 857 yards and seven touchdowns. He finally showed some potential last season, giving him a chance to start from day one this year. 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 has looked lost at times since entering the league but took some steps forward last season.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Quick has some upside for the coming year but isn't a sure thing by any means. He has plenty to compete with for targets, making him a hit or miss option. He might be worth a late round grab for fantasy teams, though, getting around 50 catches for 700 yards and a few scores.

 #70  Robert Woods Yr: 2014  TDs: 5  Yds: 699  Recpts: 65BuffaloBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Woods saw a bump in production his second season, serving as the starter for the Bills much of the year. He didn't have huge numbers in that role, though, finishing a yard shy of 700 with five touchdowns. He did have a few big games, having four games with 70-plus yards. More consistent quarterback play could help his numbers in 2015. Woods should get first shot to start with the Bills but won't be handed the job by any means, especially if Percy Harvin gets a chance to start instead of playing out of the slot. Woods will have to earn his playing time. Woods knows how to get open and can make plays all over the field. Woods has the speed to stretch the field but also does well on shorter routes. He does lack a little strength, though, and needs to play with more toughness.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Woods isn't as exciting as some of the other young receivers in the game but has some potential. He is worth a reserve look for fantasy teams. Woods can get around 60 receptions for 700 yards and four or so touchdowns.

 #71  Tavon Austin Yr: 2014  TDs: 0  Yds: 242  Recpts: 31St LouisBye: 6 
 
Player News:
Austin hasn't progressed a lot since his rookie season. He makes the occasional big play but isn't a consistent option in the passing game. Austin actually lined up as a running back at times last season and almost finished with more rushing yards (224) than receiving (242). Austin failed to top 40-receiving yards in any game last year. The Rams continue to say they want to make him a bigger point of the offense, but it hasn't materialized to date. This season could be make or break for Austin. Austin is a playmaker. He has top speed and electric moves in space. He will struggle with drops at times, though, and sometimes tries to do too much with the ball in his hands. At this point, he is a bigger asset on special teams than as a receiver.

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

 #72  Davante Adams Yr: 2014  TDs: 3  Yds: 446  Recpts: 38Green BayBye: 7 
 
Player News:
Adams showed flashes his rookie but was up and down because of sporadic playing time as a reserve receiver for the Packers. He had a 100-yard game but had 50 or more yards just four times all year. He finished with 38 receptions for about 450 yards. Adams should be the No. 3 receiver for the Packers from day one this season but won't crack the starting lineup with Randall Cobb and Jordy Nelson locked up for a few more years. Adams is more of a possession receiver than a deep threat. He is a big, athletic target that does a good job of making the tough catch. He has very good hands for a young player. He lacks a little top speed, though, which hurts him some.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Adams would look much better in a starting role but that isn't going to happen for several more years. For now, consider him a deep reserve. He should improve some on last season but don't expect a huge jump in production. He could get around 50 receptions for 600 yards and four or five touchdowns.

 #73  Jermaine Kearse Yr: 2014  TDs: 1  Yds: 537  Recpts: 38SeattleBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Kearse had a more prominent role for the Seahawks last season, especially after the trade of Percy Harvin. Kearse showed some flashes, having six games with 50 or more yards. But his season high in yards during the regular season was just 78, and he scored one touchdown all season. Kearse did make some plays during the Seahawks playoff run, scoring two of three games while topping the 100-yard mark in one of those games. He should play a similar role for the Seahawks this season, rotating in and out of the receiver spot for the team. Kearse does a good job in making the acrobatic catch and is good in the red zone. He still needs to improve his route running some and play more consistent football.

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

 #74  Tyler Lockett SeattleBye: 9 
 
Player News:
The Seahawks used a third-round pick on Lockett, hoping to find a top slot receiver and return man for years to come. Lockett will compete for the No. 3 or 4 receiver spot his rookie season. He isn't the biggest receiver but runs great routes and makes plays with the ball in his hands. He can turn a short pass into a big play. He also is a great return man and should get his chances in those areas for the Seahawks.

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

 #75  Marvin Jones CincinnatiBye: 7 
 
Player News:
Jones had a season to forget last year. He broke his foot and injured his ankle in an attempt to return from his broken foot. Eventually, he needed surgery on his ankle, ending his season. Jones didn't play a snap last year. Jones will challenge for the No. 2 or 3 receiver spot with the Bengals this season as long as he is healthy. Jones took a step forward his second season in the league, setting career highs across the board. He finished with just more than 700 yards and a very impressive 10 touchdowns. Jones was a top red-zone target for the Bengals. He uses his size well and has good leaping ability for the position. Jones has good size at receiver and is a solid athlete. He has plus hands and runs good routes for a young player. Jones does lack a little speed, though, and lacks concentration at times.

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

 #76  Rueben Randle Yr: 2014  TDs: 3  Yds: 938  Recpts: 71New York GiantsBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Randle had his best season to date last year but still struggled with consistency, even in an expanded role. He nearly had a 1,000-yard season. Randle had three 100-yard games but nine games with fewer than 50 yards. He also caught just 71 passes despite being targeted 127 times. Randle won't be handed anything this year and will have to prove his worth to continue to get his usual snaps in this offense. Randle has very good size and speed. He is a tough cover at 6-4. Randle is a big-play threat that has solid hands. He still needs some work on his route running, though, and lacks consistency.

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

 #77  Steve Smith Yr: 2014  TDs: 6  Yds: 1065  Recpts: 79BaltimoreBye: 9 
 
Player News:
A move to Baltimore was a good one for Smith, who enjoyed his best season in a few years. Smith got back to the 1,000-yard mark and caught 79 passes. He had four 100-yard games after failing to reach that mark in any game the previous season. Smith has eight 1,000-yard seasons for his career. He is 36 years old, though, so you have to wonder how much he has left in the tank, even after last season. Smith might be more of a complimentary receiver this season. Smith is a small target, but has great hands and surprising strength. He just makes plays with the ball in his hands. He has lost a step but remains very fast and a solid deep threat at receiver.

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

 #78  Greg Jennings Yr: 2014  TDs: 6  Yds: 742  Recpts: 59MiamiBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Jennings had another ho-hum season for the Vikings, his second with the team. He had some good games but some stinkers along the way. He had just less than 750 yards and failed to hit the 100-yard mark in any game. Jennings did score six touchdowns, though, and was targeted 91 times. Jennings turns 32 years old shortly after the start of the season, so his best years could be behind him. He hasn't produced nearly as well with the Vikings as he did with the high-flying Packers. He gets a chance to revive his career with the Dolphins, but likely will be the No. 3 or 4 receiver with his new team. 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 isn't a top fantasy option at this stage of his career. His numbers are going the wrong way. We don't expect a sudden turnaround, especially in more of a reserve role. He'll get around 50 catches for 700 yards and a few scores. He might be worth a look as a reserve option for fantasy teams.

 #79  Marqise Lee Yr: 2014  TDs: 1  Yds: 422  Recpts: 37JacksonvilleBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Lee didn't have quite the season as some of the other rookie receivers last year. He had four games with more than 50 yards but his season high in yards was just 75. And he scored just one touchdown in 13 games. Lee finished with 37 receptions for 422 yards. The Jaguars have plenty of open spots at receiver, so Lee could find his way into the starting lineup with a strong offseason and training camp. Lee lacks some size but is a good route runner for a young player and has great playmaking ability after the catch. Lee can serve as a top deep threat but needs to find more consistency when on the field.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Lee could surprise this year if he gets the playing time. He has plenty of ability but lacks some consistency. If the light goes on, he could emerge as a No. 3 fantasy receiver. But for now, expect about 700 yards and four touchdowns. He is worth a look as a reserve for fantasy teams.

 #80  Malcom Floyd Yr: 2014  TDs: 6  Yds: 856  Recpts: 52San DiegoBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Floyd returned from his scary neck injury from the previous season and played pretty well, posting his usual numbers in this offense. He had 856 yards and six touchdowns, averaging 16.5 yards per reception. Floyd had just one 100-yard game but 50 or more yards 10 of 16 games. He was a consistent target in the passing game. Floyd turns 34 in September, so nothing is certain with his future. He is nearing the end of the line and could be more of a spot player this season. When healthy and on his game, 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.

Fantasy Outlook: Injury Concern
It would surprise to see Floyd continue to post his usual numbers. He should see a bit of a decrease in playing time. Floyd can get around 40 catches for 600 yards and a few scores, making him a deep reserve for fantasy teams.

 #81  Paul Richardson Yr: 2014  TDs: 1  Yds: 271  Recpts: 29SeattleBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Richardson had an up and down rookie season but started to play a bigger role offensively late in the year. He had 13 receptions the last three games of the year. Unfortunately, he tore his ACL during the playoffs and is in danger of missing some time early this year. His health makes him a question mark for 2015. If healthy, Richardson could challenge for a starting job. Richardson has blazing speed, getting downfield in a hurry. He gives the offense a true big-play threat. Richardson does lack a little polish, though, and isn't very big, which could slow him against physical corners.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Richardson is a risk because of the knee injury. He'll be back at some point but it isn't certain how soon he'll be back to 100 percent. He might be worth a late-round pick if you have the roster space, but could be better waiver-wire material once he starts playing again.

 #82  Stedman Bailey Yr: 2014  TDs: 1  Yds: 435  Recpts: 30St LouisBye: 6 
 
Player News:
Bailey had to miss the first few games of the season because of suspension but found his way into the starting lineup before long for the Rams. He didn't play too badly in an expanded role, having three games with 70-plus yards. The entire Rams passing game struggled much of the season, though, which didn't help Bailey post consistent numbers. Bailey will get a chance to start from day one this year but nothing is certain with his situation. Bailey 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.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Bailey can take a step forward this season but don't expect a huge jump in production. He plays in a pretty conservative offense and likely will be inconsistent for fantasy teams. Look for a season with around 50 receptions for 650 yards and three touchdowns.

 #83  Andre Holmes Yr: 2014  TDs: 4  Yds: 693  Recpts: 47OaklandBye: 6 
 
Player News:
Holmes started much of the season for the Raiders and produced alright in that role, setting career highs across the board. He had nearly 700 yards and caught 47 passes. Holmes didn't really excel in a starting role, though, and could move back to a No. 3 or 4 receiver spot this season. Holmes has good speed and does well in stretching the field. He can be a top deep threat. He needs to continue to refine his route running if he hopes to get more playing time.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Holmes might have a hard time matching last year. He probably won't get as much playing time unless more injuries occur. Holmes could get around 30 catches for 400 yards with a touchdown.

 #84  Rod Streater Yr: 2014  TDs: 1  Yds: 84  Recpts: 9OaklandBye: 6 
 
Player News:
Streater played three games before injuring his foot, needing surgery on the injury. He had nine catches for 84 yards before the injury. He should be fine for the coming but will battle for a solid position on the depth chart. Nothing is certain for Streater. He has produced in the past, though, having an 888-yard season in 2013. Streater is a tall receiver with decent speed and athletic ability. He runs routes pretty well for a young receiver and just seems to have a knack for making plays.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Streater has some potential if getting the playing time but nothing is certain with his playing time right now. Consider him more of a waiver-wire pickup than draft material. He could get around 45 receptions for 600 yards and a few scores.

 #85  Riley Cooper Yr: 2014  TDs: 3  Yds: 577  Recpts: 55PhiladelphiaBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Cooper didn't have near the season as the previous year, finishing with fewer than 600 yards despite starting nearly all season. He saw his targets decrease and his touchdowns take a big dip. Cooper scored three times after having eight touchdowns the previous year. Cooper will continue to have a role with the Eagles but is falling down the list of options in the passing game. Cooper is best suited as a No. 3 or 4 receiver. 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. Cooper still isn't a great route runner and struggles with drops at times.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Cooper might have a few big games but is going to be really hit or miss for fantasy teams. We don't see his numbers taking a big leap forward this season. He could help as a No. 4 receiver for fantasy teams, getting around 50 receptions for 600 yards and three or four touchdowns.

 #86  Mohamed Sanu Yr: 2014  TDs: 5  Yds: 790  Recpts: 56CincinnatiBye: 7 
 
Player News:
Sanu found his way into the starting lineup from day one but didn't produce consistent numbers in that role. He had some big games early in the year but really stumbled down the stretch, which doesn't bode well for his future. He had two 100-yard games in his first seven but had less than 20 yards each of the last five games. Unless he has a strong offseason and camp, Sanu seems likely to be the No. 3 or 4 for the Bengals. Sanu is more of a possession-type receiver, lacking some big-play ability. He runs good routes, has plus hands and isn't afraid to make the tough catch in traffic. He isn't a big-play threat, though, lacking some speed for the position.

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

 #87  Mike Williams Yr: 2014  TDs: 1  Yds: 142  Recpts: 8BuffaloBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Williams caught just eight passes in nine games for the Bills last season. He hurt his calf and missed some team, eventually getting released by the team late in the year. He has been plagued by injury and poor play the last two seasons. His career is at a crossroads. He is just trying to keep an NFL roster spot after having near 1,000-yard seasons two of his first three in the NFL. 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, though, which is a bit of a concern considering he has been in the league five years now.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Williams is a risk that probably isn't worth taking. He has some potential when playing but make him prove it on the field before using a roster spot on him. For now, count on about 30 receptions for 400 yards and a score or two.

 #88  Marlon Brown Yr: 2014  TDs: 0  Yds: 255  Recpts: 24BaltimoreBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Brown didn't get a ton of work as the No. 3 receiver for the Ravens but did finish with 24 receptions last season. And he had a prominent role in one of the Ravens' playoff games, catching five passes for 59 yards. Brown could play a bigger role this season, getting a chance to even compete for a starting role. Brown has great size for the position and is a good athlete. His size makes him a good red-zone target. He does lack a little speed, though, and is more of a chain mover than big-play threat.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Brown might get more playing time this season but don't expect a huge jump in production. He isn't an exciting fantasy receiver even if he gets more targets this season. Brown can get around 40 catches for 500 yards and three touchdowns.

 #89  Hakeem Nicks Yr: 2014  TDs: 4  Yds: 405  Recpts: 38TennesseeBye: 4 
 
Player News:
Nicks didn't do much to prove his doubters wrong last season, struggling in his first season with the Colts. He had just 405 yards and had 50 or more yard two games all year. Injuries have really taken a toll on Nicks. He doesn't look like the player from earlier in his career. Nicks is just 27 years old but returning to past form seems a bit of a stretch. He can help in a reserve role with his new team, the Titans, but isn't likely to start. Nicks is a big target with great hands and athletic ability. Nicks has lost some speed, though, and doesn't get much separation these days.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Nicks showed last season that things aren't looking great for him. He could get a little more work this year with the Titans, but he isn't going to return to past form. He'll get around 45 receptions for 450 yards and a few scores, making him a stretch for fantasy teams.

 #90  Cole Beasley Yr: 2014  TDs: 4  Yds: 420  Recpts: 37DallasBye: 6 
 
Player News:
Beasley continues to do well as the No. 3 receiver for the Cowboys. He caught 37 passes last season and has 76 receptions the past two years. Beasley only topped 50 yards two times last year but had a reception in all but a game. He should continue to serve the No. 3 role for the Cowboys this season. Beasley has plus hands, runs good routes and does well in moving the chains. He isn't much of a big-play threat and lacks breakaway speed, though, which is going to prevent him from starting in this league.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Beasley has a little value in PPR formats but that is about it. Don't expect him to produce big numbers in his current role. He could get around 45 catches for 450 yards with a few scores.

 #91  Kenbrell Thompkins Yr: 2014  TDs: 0  Yds: 262  Recpts: 21OaklandBye: 6 
 
Player News:
Thompkins didn't take a step forward his second season in the league. The Patriots cut ties with him early in the season. Thompkins was signed by the Raiders and caught 15 passes in 12 games for Oakland. Thompkins is young enough to get his career going in the right direction but will need to make strides this season. Thompkins is a pretty polished route runner for a young receiver. He will struggle with some drops and consistency, though, and lacks a little top speed for the receiver spot.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Thompkins isn't worth a draft pick just yet. He might be worth a waiver-wire grab if he starts getting playing time but that isn't a sure thing by any means. He is just trying to keep a roster spot. He might get around 20 catches for 300 yards with a score or two.

 #92  Markus Wheaton Yr: 2014  TDs: 2  Yds: 644  Recpts: 53PittsburghBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Wheaton found his way into the starting lineup much of the year for the Steelers but didn't exactly excel in that role. His season high in yards (97) came in Week 1, and he failed to top 70 yards in a game after that. Wheaton finished with less than 700 yards and scored just two touchdowns. He has a tenuous hold on the starter's job and could fall down the depth chart this season. Wheaton is a speed burner, stretching the field and turning short passes into big plays. Wheaton is a big-play threat with the ball in his hands. He isn't a tall receiver and lacks some toughness but catches the ball pretty well and has great speed.

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

 #93  Donte Moncrief Yr: 2014  TDs: 3  Yds: 444  Recpts: 32IndianapolisBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Moncrief enjoyed some big games his rookie season but was all over the map as the No. 3 or 4 receiver for the team most of the season. He had two 100-yard games but had fewer than 50 yards all but one other game last season. He was boom or bust, getting limited targets on a weekly basis. He showed his promise, though, and has a chance to play a much bigger role from day one this year. He could even challenge to start but likely is the No. 3 for the Colts. Moncrief is a big receiver with a lot of speed. He remains a little raw but is improving his route running and is a top deep threat for the team.

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

 #94  Nate Washington Yr: 2014  TDs: 2  Yds: 647  Recpts: 40HoustonBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Washington saw a dip in production last season, having the fewest receptions in his six seasons with the Titans. He also had fewer than 650 yards, his lowest total since his first season with the Titans. Washington had a 100-yard game and eight of 16 games with 50 or more yards. He was pretty consistent for the offense but not off the charts by any means. At age 32, you have to wonder if his days of starting are over. He might be best suited as a situational receiver, being used to stretch the field. He likely will serve that role with his new team, the Texans, this coming season. 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 isn't going to post big numbers but might help in a pinch for fantasy teams because of his big-game potential. He could get around 30 receptions for 500 yards and a few scores.

 #95  Wes Welker Yr: 2014  TDs: 2  Yds: 464  Recpts: 49DenverBye: 7 
 
Player News:
Welker had the least production since his rookie season, finishing with fewer than 500 yards. He fell down the depth chart in Denver and didn't get near the chances of past years. He has a history of concussions and his playing status going forward is a bit uncertain. Welker topped 50 yards in just four of 14 games last year. Welker is 34 years old and finally showing signs of slowing down. Welker remains a solid possession receiver. He is a small, speedy receiver with plus hands and the ability to make plays in the open field. He just does a great job of getting open and moving the chains.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Welker isn't going to return to past success. He is nearing the end and probably isn't even worth taking for fantasy teams. He might get 30 or 40 receptions for around 400 yards and a few scores.

 #96  Cordarrelle Patterson Yr: 2014  TDs: 1  Yds: 384  Recpts: 33MinnesotaBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Patterson was a huge bust last season, failing to take a big step forward from his rookie season. He was in and out of the starting lineup and had fewer than 400-receiving yards for the season. His season high in yards was just 86 and he scored just two times. Patterson's best game might have come Week 1, rushing three times for 107 yards and a touchdown. He made few big plays after the season opener. Patterson is at a bit of a crossroads in his career. He needs to take a big step forward this season if he hopes to keep getting work as a receiver. If that doesn't happen, he'll be a return specialist more than anything. Patterson is a big-play threat at receiver. He does a good job at making a short pass into a big play because of his acceleration. Patterson isn't a great route runner, though, and lacks consistency in the passing game. He also will struggle with drops at times.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Patterson was high on radars last season but that won't be the case this year. We still haven't totally given up on him because of his big-play ability but don't take him as anything more than a No. 4 or 5 fantasy receiver. He can get around 600 total yards and a few scores, but the ability is there for him to produce big if he puts it together.

 #97  Jerricho Cotchery Yr: 2014  TDs: 1  Yds: 580  Recpts: 48CarolinaBye: 5 
 
Player News:
A move to Carolina didn't exactly prove to be a difference maker for Cotchery. He started for the Panthers but posted ho-hum numbers in that role. He had more than 50 yards just three times all season and his season high in yards was 86. Cotchery finished with fewer than 50 receptions. He hasn't topped 50 receptions since 2009. And at age 33, Cotchery might be best suited as a No. 3 or 4 receiver. 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. He lacks top speed, though, and his numbers haven't been too impressive the last five seasons.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Remember, Cotchery has topped 1,000 yards just once for his career. So even when he was at the top of his game, his numbers weren't great for fantasy teams. He might be able to help some in PPR formats but that is about it. He can get around 40 catches for 500 yards and a few scores.

 #98  Marquise Goodwin Yr: 2014  TDs: 0  Yds: 42  Recpts: 1BuffaloBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Goodwin barely saw the field his second season in the league. He caught just a pass and had three rush attempts. His career isn't progressing as expected and is just trying to keep a roster spot. Goodwin had 18 receptions in two seasons. Goodwin is a speed burner that gives the Bills a top deep threat in the passing game. He has high upside, but needs to improve his route running and add some strength if he hopes to get more playing time this season.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Goodwin has potential if he gets the targets but getting the targets isn't a sure thing. Consider him waiver-wire material. Goodwin could get around 20 catches for 300 yards and a score or two.

 #99  Devin Funchess CarolinaBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Funchess gives the Panthers a different dimension at receiver. He is a huge receiver, looking more like a tight end than a receiver. He has good strength and size, using both to his advantage when catching passes. He runs good routes and is a tough cover for cornerbacks because of his size. He lacks some moves in space, though, and his hands aren't the best just yet. Funchess has a good chance to be a starter from day one his rookie season.

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

 #100  Harry Douglas Yr: 2014  TDs: 2  Yds: 556  Recpts: 51TennesseeBye: 4 
 
Player News:
Douglas had the first 1,000-yard season the previous year but fell back to his usual numbers last year. He had around 500 yards and 51 receptions. He did miss some games because of injury and started others because of injury, so his numbers in the end were pretty similar to that of a full season. He had two 100-yard games and but topped 50 yards just three times in 12 games. Douglas has fewer than 500 yards all but the last two seasons. He is best fit as a slot receiver for NFL teams, a role he should serve with the Titans this season. 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:  
Douglas has value if he is starting but as long as he is a No. 3 receiver, he doesn't bring much to fantasy teams. He'll get around 50 receptions for 600 yards with a few scores in his first season with the Titans.

 #101  Lance Moore Yr: 2014  TDs: 2  Yds: 198  Recpts: 14DetroitBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Moore didn't get much action his first season with the Steelers. He caught just 14 passes on 26 targets. His numbers have gone down each of the past three seasons. Moore turns 32 years old right before the start of the coming season. He has been a productive pro but never produced great numbers. He has fewer than 700 yards all but three seasons. Moore is setup for more reserve work this season, competing for a roster spot with the Lions. Moore isn't flashy but a consistent, dependable receiver. He isn't a big receiver, but is very fast and has good hands. He makes plays with the ball in his hands and has a knack for finding the end zone.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Moore's career is trending the wrong way. He could get a little better from last season but that isn't saying much. Don't bother with him on your fantasy team right now. Moore can get around 20 catches for 300 yards with a score or two.

 #102  Miles Austin Yr: 2014  TDs: 2  Yds: 568  Recpts: 47PhiladelphiaBye: 8 
 
Player News:
A lacerated kidney ended Austin's first season with the Browns early, but Austin produced pretty well before the injury. He got his work in the passing game and was pretty consistent for a team that struggled to throw the ball. Austin had six games with more than 50 yards and at least two receptions every game he played. If Austin plays a full season, he catches 63 passes for 757 yards and three touchdowns. He is 31 years old but last season was encouraging for Austin, showing he can still play at a fairly high level. He can serve as a No. 3 or 4 receiver this year for the Eagles. 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 the best route runner but has improved in that area through the years, showing last season he can help as a possession receiver.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Austin is always capable of the big game but it is hard to trust him at this point of his career. He is injury prone and produced inconsistent numbers in recent seasons. He might have a hard time matching last year's production, making him a deep reserve for fantasy teams. Austin can get around 40 receptions for 500 yards and a few scores.

 #103  Donnie Avery Yr: 2014  TDs: 0  Yds: 176  Recpts: 15Kansas CityBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Avery saw a decrease in playing time, catching 15 passes in six games for the Chiefs. He had some injury issues but also fell down the depth chart. Avery has 580-plus yards four of six seasons but his career high in yards is just 781. He has been a solid NFL receiver but not spectacular. Avery serves his role well and seems destined for a reserve role this season. Avery struggled with consistency early in his career but was much better in this area the last few seasons. He still has some issues with drops and could improve his route running, though. Avery does have some 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 wasn't a great fantasy option when starting, so don't bother with him at this point. He might get around 20 or 30 receptions 250 yards with a score.

 #104  Austin Pettis Yr: 2014  TDs: 1  Yds: 118  Recpts: 12San DiegoBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Pettis was with the Rams for five games last season before getting released. He had 12 receptions before his departure for the Rams. He signed with the Chargers shortly after the season and will try to win a roster spot with his new team. Pettis has two season with 30-plus catches but has never topped 500 yards in a season. Pettis won't wow you with his speed, but he 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 might find more playing time this year but isn't going to get enough work to be much of a benefit for fantasy teams. He might get around 20 receptions for a few hundred yards.

 #105  Jeremy Kerley Yr: 2014  TDs: 1  Yds: 409  Recpts: 38New York JetsBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Kerley did a solid job once again as the slot receiver for the Jets. He caught 38 passes, giving him at least 29 receptions all four seasons with the Jets. He has more than 525 yards just once in four years, though, serving as a possession receiver for the team. He should serve a similar role this year. Kerley isn't a big target, but a small playmaker that does well in space. His rout running isn't the best 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 can finish with his usual numbers this season. He isn't a great fantasy option because he doesn't score much and isn't much of a big-game receiver. He'll get around 35 catches for 400 yards and a couple scores.

 #106  James Jones Yr: 2014  TDs: 6  Yds: 666  Recpts: 73---Bye:  
 
Player News:
Jones had a decent first season with the Raiders, setting a career high in receptions with 73. He was probably the most consistent receiver for the Raiders but didn't gain many yards with all his catches. He had fewer than 700 yards, averaging 9.1 yards per reception. Jones had one 100-yard game all season, which came in Week 2. He'll continue to have a big role in this passing game, serving as the No. 2 or 3 for the Raiders. Jones has at least 600 yards six of eight 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 isn't a very exciting fantasy option. He was setup for his best season to date last year but still didn't produce great numbers. Expect his numbers to get a little better this year as the offense improves but don't expect a huge jump in production. He should finish with 75 or so receptions for 800 yards and five touchdowns.

 #107  Danny Amendola Yr: 2014  TDs: 1  Yds: 200  Recpts: 27New EnglandBye: 4 
 
Player News:
Amendola got even less work last season with the Patriots than his first with the team. He caught 27 passes last year after having 54 in 2013. Amendola has shown flashes in the past, but has played a full season just twice during his career and his career high in yards is 689. 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:  
It is hard to trust Amendola, who seemed ready to breakout for the Patriots, but lost out on work to Julian Edelman. He can get more targets than last season but still isn't much of a fantasy threat. He can get around 35 receptions for 300 yards and a score or so.

 #108  Ace Sanders Yr: 2014  TDs: 0  Yds: 55  Recpts: 6---Bye:  
 
Player News:
Sanders got plenty of work as a punt returner last season but didn't get as much work as a receiver compared to his rookie year. He had just six receptions in 12 games. This was a big drop in production after catching 51 passes the previous season. His lack of playing time is a concern, especially since he was on a receiver-needy team last year. Sanders is just looking to keep his roster spot for now. Sanders is a quick receiver that has a knack for getting open and making plays after the catch. Sanders does lack some size and strength, though, and might be best served as a return specialist than a receiver.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Sanders could have emerged last season but didn't, which is concerning. He might get a little more work this year but not enough to be worth grabbing for fantasy teams. He might get around 15 or 20 receptions for a few hundred yards.

 #109  Jerrel Jernigan Yr: 2014  TDs: 0  Yds: 40  Recpts: 6New York GiantsBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Jernigan injured his foot very early in the season and played just two games, catching six passes for 40 yards. Jernigan has just 38 receptions in three seasons. He hasn't done a whole lot with past chances. Jernigan will compete for a No. 3 or 4 receiver spot this season. 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 can do well in spot duty.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Jernigan isn't likely to get a ton of chances this season. He could get around 20 catches for 200 yards with a score or two. He isn't really worth drafting but might be worth grabbing during the season if he starts to get more consistent playing time.

 #110  Chris Givens Yr: 2014  TDs: 1  Yds: 159  Recpts: 11St LouisBye: 6 
 
Player News:
Givens fell down the depth chart for the Rams last season, getting sporadic playing time for a poor passing attack. Givens had just 11 receptions all season and failed to top 50 yards in a game. Givens numbers are going the wrong way, falling each of his three seasons in the league. He'll challenge for a No. 3 or 4 receiver spot this season. 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 isn't great. Givens also struggles with drops and consistency.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Givens isn't worth the risk. He has some big-game ability but you never know when those are going to come. He might get around 20 catches for 300 yards with a score.

Wright was the No. 3 receiver for the Vikings much of last season and had a career season in that role. He got more chances in the passing game and took advantage. He had two 100-yard games and nearl 600-receiving yards on 42 receptions. He has served his role well as the No. 3 for the Vikings the past two seasons, having 68 receptions the past two years. He should continue to fill a similar role this year. Wright is a small receiver but runs plus routes and has solid hands. He does well out of the slot more so than as a starter. His size does cause him some issues, though, as the opposition can get physical with him to knock him off his game. He needs to continue to add strength to take his game to a new level.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Wright might have a hard time topping last season, making him a little bit of a stretch for fantasy teams. He might help in a pinch but that is about it. Look for around 40 receptions for 500 yards and a few scores. He is a deep reserve for fantasy teams.

 #112  Reggie Wayne Yr: 2014  TDs: 2  Yds: 779  Recpts: 64---Bye:  
 
Player News:
Wayne returned from his torn ACL last season and was able to play all but a game, but his numbers weren't near that of past seasons. He finished just shy of 800 yards and scored just two touchdowns. He did have a few big games, though, four games with 90-plus yards. But at age 36, his days in the NFL could be about over. He was one of the top receivers in the game during his prime but is showing signs of age finally. Wayne has great hands, runs top routes and isn't just a deep threat anymore. He has lost some speed, though, and lacks explosiveness at the receiver position.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Wayne is a player to avoid, if he even plays this year. His numbers will take another dip as will his playing time. He might get around 40 catches for 400 yards and a few scores.

 #113  Leonard Hankerson Yr: 2014  TDs: 0  Yds: 0  Recpts: 0AtlantaBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Hankerson was active for just a game last season and finished without a reception. He battled injury and was even a healthy scratch at times. His career is at a bit of a crossroads. Hankerson could be in a make or break year, trying to win a roster spot. 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. He has struggled with drops and consistency since entering the league, though.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Hankerson has some talent but can't seem to get it together. He isn't worth drafting but might be worth picking up if he starts getting playing time, which is possible. Expect around 20 catches for 300 yards with a score or two.

 #114  David Nelson Yr: 2014  TDs: 0  Yds: 65  Recpts: 8New York JetsBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Nelson had just eight receptions in six games with the Jets last season. Things took a step backwards for Nelson last season after posting decent numbers the previous year. Nelson is just trying to keep a roster spot, battling for a No. 4 or 5 receiver job. Nelson has more than 30 receptions three of five seasons. His career high in yards, though, is just 658. 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. He lacks some speed, though, and isn't a top route runner.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Nelson doesn't bring a whole lot to the table. His career is trending the wrong way. He might get around 15 catches for 200 yards. Go with other options.

 #115  Devier Posey Yr: 2014  TDs: 0  Yds: 30  Recpts: 1New York JetsBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Posey was inactive most weeks last season, playing just a game. He did catch a pass for 30 yards in that game, though. Posey has just 22 receptions in three seasons. He has taken few steps forward since entering the league. Posey is a well-rounded receiver that runs solid routes and knows how to get open. He doesn't have exceptional speed but seems 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.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Posey hasn't gotten the work to date to help fantasy teams and a change doesn't seem likely this season. He could get around 10 catches for 100 yards.

 #116  Rishard Matthews Yr: 2014  TDs: 2  Yds: 135  Recpts: 12MiamiBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Matthews didn't get nearly the work as the previous year, catching just 12 passes in 14 games. The coaching staff seemed to lose a little faith in him after playing him pretty extensively the previous year. This isn't a great sign for his future. He'll battle for a reserve role this coming year, likely serving as a No. 4 or 5 receiver. Matthews has good strength for the position and can get downfield in a hurry. He runs good routes but isn't a very explosive player.

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

 #117  Terrelle Pryor ClevelandBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Pryor didn't play at all last season and wasn't even on an NFL roster, getting cut by the Seahawks before the start of the season. Pryor signed with the Chiefs after the season, though, and will compete for a roster spot with his new team. Pryor's rushing ability makes him a threat at quarterback even if he can't throw the ball very effective, which has been the case for him throughout his NFL career. But if Pryor ever hopes to be a full-time starter, he will need to improve as a passer. Pryor has playmaking ability. He has a plus arm and can make plenty of plays with his legs. He has very good speed at the quarterback spot. He struggles with accuracy, though, and needs work reading defenses. He'll make mistakes when pressured and turn the ball over too much.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Pryor has ability and can be used as kind of a gimmick player, but he isn't an NFL starter. Don't expect much for him if he makes an NFL roster.

 #118  Santonio Holmes Yr: 2014  TDs: 0  Yds: 67  Recpts: 8---Bye:  
 
Player News:
Holmes caught on with the Bears last season and caught eight passes in nine games before getting released. He wasn't picked up by a team and is just looking to earn a roster spot for the coming season. Holmes is 31 years old but is a former 1,000-yard receiver with plenty of past success, so he could help in a reserve role. Holmes is a top athlete with good 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:  
Holmes has never been a great fantasy play and certainly isn't at this stage of his career. He might get a few more chances this year but even that won't help fantasy teams.

 #119  Andre Roberts Yr: 2014  TDs: 2  Yds: 453  Recpts: 36WashingtonBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Roberts had a so-so first season with the Redskins. He served as the No. 3 receiver much of the year and finished with 36 receptions but had fewer than 500 yards. Roberts had a reception in every game but topped 50 yards just three times. Roberts should play a similar role this season, a role he serves pretty well. Roberts hasn't topped 500 yards two straight seasons but has at least 36 receptions four straight years. 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.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Robert doesn't bring a whole lot to the table for fantasy teams. He can get some catches but his yards and touchdowns won't be very good. He could get around 30 receptions for 400 yards with a score or two.

 #120  Santana Moss Yr: 2014  TDs: 0  Yds: 116  Recpts: 10---Bye:  
 
Player News:
Moss fell down to fourth on the depth chart last season and barely saw the field, catching 10 passes on the season. Moss is more of a possession receiver right now, a role he'll try to serve again this season. But at age 36, Moss might have a hard time keeping a roster spot. 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' best days are clearly behind him. Don't bother with him come draft day.

 #121  Jason Avant Yr: 2014  TDs: 1  Yds: 353  Recpts: 34Kansas CityBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Avant opened the season with the Panthers but ended it with the Chiefs. He didn't get a ton of work with either team, though. Avant had 29 receptions for 306 yards between the two teams. He had more than 50 yards just two games and his season high in yards was 64. Avant is 32 years old and likely on the downside of his career as evident by his down numbers last few seasons. He can still help as a No. 3 or 4 receiver, though, because of his experience and past success. Avant has never topped 700 yards in a season but does have three seasons with 50-plus catches. 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 decent numbers in that role when called upon.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Avant was never much of a fantasy option even when on top of his game, so taking him at this stage of his career probably isn't a great idea. He'll get you around 35 receptions for 400 or so yards. And don't forget that Avant has just 13 touchdowns in nine seasons.

 #122  Tandon Doss JacksonvilleBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Doss was placed on Injured Reserve before the season started because of an ankle injury, missing all of last year. Doss has just 26 receptions in three seasons and is just looking to win a roster 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, though.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Doss has a little talent but can't be drafted until he starts producing on the field. Until that happens, don't bother with Doss. He seems a long shot.

 #123  Louis Murphy Yr: 2014  TDs: 2  Yds: 380  Recpts: 31Tampa BayBye: 6 
 
Player News:
Murphy played well in spurts last season. He had just over 300 yards but three games with 70-plus yards. He took advantage of some opportunities when given the chance. He should battle for a No. 3 or 4 receiver role this season. His career high in yards is 609 but he has more than 500 yards two seasons. 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:  
Murphy might improve a little on last season but not by much. He'll be up and down for fantasy teams, making him a guy to avoid unless he finds his way into the starting lineup because of injury. He could get around 35 receptions for 400 yards with a score or two.

 #124  Brandon Gibson Yr: 2014  TDs: 1  Yds: 295  Recpts: 29New EnglandBye: 4 
 
Player News:
Gibson got less playing time with the Dolphins last season, falling to No. 4 on the depth chart much of the year. He caught just 29 passes and failed to have more than 50 yards in a single game. Gibson has two seasons with more than 50 receptions but has failed to top 700 yards in any season. He heads to New England this season with the hope of serving as the No. 3 or 4 receiver for his new team. 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 has some potential with his new team, especially if he finds his way into the rotation at receiver. He might be worth a late-round grab in deeper formats. He probably is best suited as a waiver-wire grab, though. He can get around 40 receptions for 500 yards and a few scores.

 #125  Denarius Moore Yr: 2014  TDs: 0  Yds: 115  Recpts: 12CincinnatiBye: 7 
 
Player News:
Moore was dinged up much of last season but didn't play much even when active. He had just 12 receptions and failed to top 30 yards in a game. Before last season, Moore had three straight seasons with more than 600 yards but his career high in yards is 741 yards. Moore isn't likely to start this season but could serve a No. 3 or 4 receiver role for the Bengals. Moore has the skill to be a top deep threat in the league. 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 might have peaked a few years back. His career is trending the wrong way right now. He could turn it around but even if he did, Moore isn't going to help fantasy teams. He could get 30 receptions for 400 yard and a score or two.

 #126  Justin Blackmon JacksonvilleBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Blackmon was suspended last season and missed the entire year. He has been suspended multiple times and could be out of the league if he gets another strike against him. Blackmon could be a starter for the Jaguars if all goes well for him, though. The team seems to be sticking by him, for now. Blackmon is a pretty 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 has lacked some consistency at times but was making strides in that area before last season.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Blackmon is a big risk but carries potential. He is worth a late-round look if you have some proven options ahead of him on your depth chart. For now, expect around 60 receptions for 800 yards and five or six touchdowns. He could exceed that if all falls into place for him, though.

 #127  Keshawn Martin Yr: 2014  TDs: 0  Yds: 78  Recpts: 6HoustonBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Martin didn't see the field much last season, catching just six passes all year. He continues to get most of his work on special teams, serving as the kick and punt returner. This should continue to be the case for Martin this season. 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 has never topped 25 receptions in a season, so don't bother with him on your fantasy team. He'll be lucky to get double-digit receptions.

 #128  Chris Owusu Yr: 2014  TDs: 1  Yds: 78  Recpts: 6New York JetsBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Owusu played with the Bucs and Jets last season, finishing the year with six receptions in eight games. He played little, even on a Jets' team that needed help at receiver. Owusu has just 20 receptions in three seasons. He is just trying to keep an NFL roster spot. Owusu has good size for the receiver position but is more of a possession receiver at this point of his career. He could be a good fit for the slot if he gets the chance.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Owusu isn't going to produce big numbers even if he starts getting consistent playing time. He hasn't taken enough strides since entering the league. Expect around 10 catches for 100 yards.

 #129  A.J. Jenkins Yr: 2014  TDs: 0  Yds: 93  Recpts: 9DallasBye: 6 
 
Player News:
Jenkins had yet another disappointing season, catching just nine passes for 93 yards. He had a chance to grab a big role in the Chiefs passing game but couldn't break through. Jenkins has just 17 career receptions and might have a hard time holding a roster spot this season. Jenkins is a deep threat. He has top speed and stretches the field in a hurry. He is a big-play threat. Jenkins lacks consistency and isn't a good route runner, which hurts his chances to play much.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Jenkins isn't worth the headache. He has done next to nothing in his career. Go with other options.

 #130  Brice Butler Yr: 2014  TDs: 2  Yds: 280  Recpts: 21OaklandBye: 6 
 
Player News:
Butler got a little more work his second season but not much. He had more than 50 yards just once and caught 21 passes as a reserve for the Raiders. He did score a couple touchdowns on limited touches, showing a knack for the end zone. Brice will try to move up the depth chart this season in what could be a make or break year for him. Butler is a smooth route runner that does well stretching the field and making the acrobatic catch. He will drop some passes, though, and lacks strength.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Butler could get more playing time but don't expect a big leap forward this year. He might get 30 receptions for 350 yards and a score or two.

 #131  Devin Hester Yr: 2014  TDs: 2  Yds: 504  Recpts: 38AtlantaBye: 10 
 
Player News:
A move to Atlanta was a good one for Hester, getting his most work as a receiver in recent seasons. He caught 38 passes after not having a single reception the year before with the Bears. Hester even had a few big games, finishing with 50 or more yards four times. He did well as a reserve receiver and return specialist for the Falcons, a role he should serve again this season. Hester has 20 or more receptions seven of the past eight seasons. 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 remains a difference maker on special teams.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Hester saw a big uptick in playing time as a receiver but still wasn't much of a help to fantasy teams. He doesn't get a ton of catches and his yards are just alright. Don't expect a change this season. He might get around 30 receptions for 300 yards with a score or two. 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.

 #132  Josh Huff Yr: 2014  TDs: 0  Yds: 98  Recpts: 8PhiladelphiaBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Huff got very little playing time his rookie year, catching just eight passes for 98 yards. He has a chance to move up the depth chart this season, though, with the Eagles having some openings at receiver. He will compete for the No. 3 or 4 receiver spot this season. Huff is a solid all-around receiver. He has good strength, runs well and has plus hands. He isn't a great route runner just yet and not quite the top athlete as some of the other young receivers in the league.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Huff has a chance to take a big jump in production compared to last year. He isn't going to post eye-popping numbers but could get 40 receptions for 500 yards with a few score. He might be worth a late-round grab come draft day. He could get more playing time as the season progresses.

 #133  Junior Hemingway Yr: 2014  TDs: 0  Yds: 108  Recpts: 12Kansas CityBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Hemingway had almost an identical season to his rookie year, catching 12 passes last year. He has 25 receptions in two seasons. He is going to battle for a No. 3 or 4 receiver spot this season, needing to make progress to get that role. Hemingway is a pretty good fit for the slot. He has good speed and strength. His route running is improving as well as his hands.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Hemingway doesn't have much value in an offense that doesn't feature many three-receiver sets. He can finish with better numbers than last season but not by a lot. Look for 20 receptions for 250 yards with a touchdown.

 #134  Kevin Ogletree Yr: 2014  TDs: 0  Yds: 50  Recpts: 5---Bye:  
 
Player News:
Ogletree had five receptions in seven games for the Giants last season. He has just 83 receptions in six NFL seasons. Ogletree makes his mark as a top special teams player more than as a receiver. He should play a similar role this season, getting sporadic work as a receiver and plenty of time on special teams. 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 isn't going to get enough work to help fantasy teams. He is going to have a hard time reaching 20 receptions.

 #135  Nick Toon Yr: 2014  TDs: 1  Yds: 215  Recpts: 17New OrleansBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Toon didn't get playing time until late last year but made some contributions once on the field. He had multiple receptions five of the last six games and finished with 17 receptions. Toon will get a chance for a bigger role from day one this year but needs to show more progress this offseason for that to happen. 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 isn't much of a big-play threat.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Toon has upside in this offense if he is playing but it isn't a guarantee that he gets much playing time. He probably isn't a guy to draft but keep an eye on waivers. We don't see him taking a huge step forward this season. Toon can get 40 or so catches for 550 yards with a few touchdowns.

 #136  Taylor Gabriel Yr: 2014  TDs: 1  Yds: 621  Recpts: 36ClevelandBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Gabriel was a surprise player for the Browns, serving as a top deep threat for the team. He had nearly 630 yards and averaged 17 yards per reception. Gabriel had receptions in all but a game but his season high in catches was five. Gabriel served as more of a situational player, which should be his role this season. He is a very small receiver that lacks size and strength, but has top speed and playmaking ability. He'll get his chances on a weekly basis but most likely not as a starter. He'll be the No. 3 or 4 receiver for the Browns, getting a few chances each week to break some big plays.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Gabriel might have a hard time getting as much work as he did last season. The Browns will use him but his big games will be sporadic, making him a risky fantasy play. He could get 30 receptions for 500 or so yards and a score or two.

 #137  Jarrett Boykin Yr: 2014  TDs: 0  Yds: 23  Recpts: 3CarolinaBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Boykin barely saw the field after his big season the previous year. He caught just three passes last year, falling down the depth chart for the Packers. His future isn't quite as bright but a move to Carolina could help jumpstart his career. He'll try to win the No. 3 receiver spot with his new team. Boykin has good size and decent speed. He runs pretty solid routes for a young receiver and has good hands. He does well in making plays after the catch.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Boykin took a big step backwards last season but gets a chance to rebound this season. But he won't get a ton of playing time as a No. 3 or 4 receiver for the Panthers, giving him little value for fantasy teams.

 #138  Dwayne Harris Yr: 2014  TDs: 0  Yds: 116  Recpts: 7New York GiantsBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Harris continues to get more work on special teams than offensively. He caught just seven passes last season and has 33 receptions for his career. Harris continues to do pretty well as a return man, though, getting chances to return both punts and kicks. He should continue to play a similar role this season, getting little work as a receiver but plenty of work on special teams. Harris 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 might get a few more chances as a receiver but don't expect much. Harris can get around 10 catches for 100.

 #139  Travis Benjamin Yr: 2014  TDs: 3  Yds: 314  Recpts: 18ClevelandBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Benjamin caught 18 passes last season, which tied a career high. He did set a career high in yards (314) and touchdowns (3), though. Benjamin made some big plays with the limited chances he got, averaging 17.4 yards per reception. Benjamin continues to be more of a factor on special teams, getting some work both as a punt and kick returner. He should play a similar role this season, getting a few chances as a receiver but most of his playing time will come on special teams. Benjamin lacks size but has good speed and does well as a deep threat. He runs good routes and does a good job of finding the soft spot in coverage. He is a good fit for the slot. Benjamin isn't a physical player, though, and will shy away from contact, hurting his chances to play more as a receiver.

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

 #140  Shaq Evans New York JetsBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Evans didn't play his rookie season, needing shoulder surgery to repair a torn labrum. He was hurt before the season started. At this point, he is going to just try to win a roster spot for the coming year. He isn't guaranteed anything after last year. Evans is more of a possession receiver. He does have some concentration issues but has good hands much of the time and runs solid routes. He does well at finding the soft spot in zones. He doesn't do much after the catch, though, and lacks some top speed to play on the outside.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Evans is just trying to win a roster spot, so don't bother with him on your fantasy team. He is a long shot to produce much if he makes the team.

 #141  De'Anthony Thomas Yr: 2014  TDs: 0  Yds: 156  Recpts: 23Kansas CityBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Thomas was more of a help on special teams than anything but got some work offensively his rookie season. The Chiefs found a way each week to get him some touches, mainly in the passing game. He caught 23 passes compared to 14 rushes. He made plays with his limited work, averaging 8.1 yards per carry. He also returned a punt for a touchdown, making him a key player on special teams. He could get a few more touches offensively this season as the Chiefs try to spark their offense. Thomas is a playmaker. Thomas isn't going to do much on the inside but has great playmaking ability on the outside and in the passing game. He has blazing speed and great moves in space. Thomas lacks some size, though, and is limited in what he can do as a running back.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Thomas will get more touches this season but probably not enough to make him much of a fantasy threat. He has a lot more value in leagues that reward return yardage. But for now, he can get around 500 yards and 30 receptions his second season in the league.

 #142  Griff Whalen Yr: 2014  TDs: 0  Yds: 23  Recpts: 2IndianapolisBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Whalen played 10 games last season for the Colts, getting most of his work as a return man on special teams. He didn't shine in that area, though, leading to the Colt replacing him during the season. Whalen caught just two passes as a receiver, having 26 receptions in two seasons for the Colts. Whalen is going to try to just win a roster spot this year, which isn't guaranteed. Whalen has pretty good speed, runs solid routes and has decent hands. He doesn't really "wow" in any one area, though, which holds him back some.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Whalen doesn't have a whole lot of upside. He'll have a hard time finding the field. He could get around 10 catches for 100 yards if he gets some playing time.

 #143  Josh Morgan Yr: 2014  TDs: 1  Yds: 70  Recpts: 10New OrleansBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Morgan had 11 receptions in a limited role with the Bears last season. He has just 30 receptions the last two seasons and has topped 500 yards just three times in his career. 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'll try to win a reserve role with a team this year.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Morgan brings little to the table after the last few seasons. He just doesn't get enough consistent work to help fantasy teams. He might get around 15 catches for 200 yards if all goes well for him, which is going to help very few fantasy teams.

 #144  Kevin Norwood Yr: 2014  TDs: 0  Yds: 102  Recpts: 9SeattleBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Norwood had nine receptions in a limited role for the Seahawks his rookie season. He was even inactive some games. But even with that said, he could move up the depth chart this season and challenge for a No. 3 or 4 receiver spot. The Seahawks have some opportunities for receivers to move up the depth chart. Norwood is a good route runner with plus hands. He could be a top possession receiver in the NFL. He does lack some breakaway speed, though, which could hurt his chances to start.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Norwood could move up the depth chart this season but that doesn't mean he'll get a ton of targets even if that happens. His upside is limited unless he is starting. Norwood might get around 300 or 400 yards with a few scores.

 #145  Marcus Easley Yr: 2014  TDs: 0  Yds: 0  Recpts: 0BuffaloBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Easley played 10 games last season but didn't catch a pass. He contributed on special teams but that was about it. Easley has two receptions in three seasons. The Bills had all sorts of needs at receiver last season, and Easley still couldn't find the field. His career isn't trending in the right direction. Easley will compete for a roster spot. 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 might have a hard time just making the team this season. And even if he does, don't expect much production. He could get around 15 catches for 200 yards.

 #146  Bruce Ellington Yr: 2014  TDs: 2  Yds: 62  Recpts: 6San FranciscoBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Ellington caught just six passes his rookie season but two went for scores, which was a good sign for Ellington. He also got some chances to run the ball, running six times for 28 yards and another score. He'll try to grab a bigger role this season, competing for the No. 3 or 4 receiver spot for the 49ers. Ellington is a small receiver with great quickness and moves in space. He can make a big play after a short catch. He also can help in the return game, which helps his chances for playing time this season. He seems an ideal fit for the slot.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Ellington is a bit of a stretch for fantasy teams. He should get more work this season but has limited upside with sporadic touches. He'll get some catches and chances to run the ball, but expect around 400 total yards and maybe a score or two.

 #147  TJ Jones DetroitBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Jones didn't play a snap his rookie season, missing the entire year because of a shoulder injured suffered before the season. He will try to win a No. 3 or 4 job with the Lions this season. Jones is a pretty polished product for a young receiver. He has plus hands, runs good routes and just has a knack for getting open. He isn't too big, though, and can get pushed around some. Jones seems a good fit for the slot, a role he will compete for this season.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Jones might be worth a look in deeper formats but don't expect consistent production. He has more upside for receptions than anything. Look for around 30 catches for 400 yards with a score or two.

 #148  Jeff Janis Yr: 2014  TDs: 0  Yds: 16  Recpts: 2Green BayBye: 7 
 
Player News:
Janis was inactive most weeks, catching just two passes his rookie season. He'll try to move up a crowded depth chart this season for the Packers. Janis has plenty of ability, though. He was very raw his rookie season but the talent is there. Janis is a big, strong receiver with plus speed. He can be a top deep threat for the Packers.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Janis has some upside to take a step forward this season. His playing time could be sporadic but he could have a few big games along the way, serving as a deep threat for the team. He could get around 20 catches for 400 yards with a score or two.

 #149  Justin Brown Yr: 2014  TDs: 0  Yds: 94  Recpts: 12BuffaloBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Brown had 12 receptions last season before getting released by the Steelers late in the season. He was picked up by the Bills and will compete for a roster spot with them this coming season. Brown has done little since joining the NFL a few seasons back, which isn't a good sign. 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.

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

 #150  Jalen Saunders Yr: 2014  TDs: 0  Yds: 7  Recpts: 1New OrleansBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Saunders bounced around with a few different teams his rookie season before finally getting a chance with the Saints late in the year, catching a pass for seven yards. It wasn't a great start to his career, bouncing around the league while getting little playing time. Saunders will try to take a step forward this season, looking to win a roster spot. Saunders is a very small receiver but is very quick and has great moves in space. He also runs pretty good routes and will play physical despite his small size. He could add some strength, though, and his small size limits what he can do in the NFL.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Saunders might have some potential in PPR formats if he starts getting playing time but it seems a bit of a long shot he finds the field often this season. He'll be hit or miss, getting around 15 catches for 200 yards in a reserve role.

 #151  Robert Herron Yr: 2014  TDs: 1  Yds: 58  Recpts: 6Tampa BayBye: 6 
 
Player News:
Herron got little playing time in a deep reserve role his rookie season, catching just six passes. But the good news is he scored a touchdown with one of his six catches. He'll look to move up the depth chart this season, trying to win the No. 3 or 4 receiver spot for the Bucs. Herron is a small target but a fast receiver that does his best at stretching the field. He is more of a vertical threat than anything because of his very good speed. He isn't a great route runner, though, and lacks some physicality.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Herron could get more chances this year but he isn't going to be a prominent receiver in this offense, making him a stretch for fantasy teams. He could get around 20 catches for 300 yards with a score or two.

 #152  Devin Street Yr: 2014  TDs: 0  Yds: 18  Recpts: 2DallasBye: 6 
 
Player News:
Street got very little playing time his rookie season, catching two passes the entire year. He was targeted just seven times, doing little in a deep reserve role. He'll try to move up the depth chart this season but likely will be the No. 4 receiver with three quality options ahead of him on the depth chart. Street is a tall receiver with speed and plus hands. He could be a deep threat or red-zone target for the Cowboys if he gets the playing time. He isn't very physical, though, and needs to add some strength to consistently compete in the NFL.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Street has some big-game and touchdown potential but he'll be really up and down in his current role with the Cowboys. He'll probably have more bad showings than good ones, making him a risk for fantasy teams. He could get a few hundred yards with a touchdown or two.

 #153  Chris Hogan Yr: 2014  TDs: 4  Yds: 426  Recpts: 41BuffaloBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Hogan got a lot more playing time his second season in the league, getting a few starts because of injury. Hogan filled the role pretty well, catching a career-high 41 passes for 426 yards and four touchdowns. Hogan had five games with 50-plus yards, showing some decent consistency with his chances. He will challenge for the No. 3 or 4 receiver spot for the Bills this season. Hogan isn't a flashy receiver but has good size and moves the chains. He is a good fit for the slot, a role he'll try to serve this season.

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

 #154  Preston Parker Yr: 2014  TDs: 2  Yds: 418  Recpts: 36New York GiantsBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Parker re-emerged last season, finishing with the second best totals of his career. Parker had a reception in all but a game and nine multiple reception games, finishing with 36 receptions for the Giants. He served a depth role for the Giants and will try to win a similar role this season. Parker is a good fit for the slot, though. He isn't a huge target but runs well and does well finding the open spot in the secondary.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Parker might have a rough time repeating last season. We think a season around 30 or so receptions is more likely for around 400 yards with a score or two. He probably is a reach outside of deep PPR leagues.

 #155  Ryan Grant Yr: 2014  TDs: 0  Yds: 68  Recpts: 7WashingtonBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Grant had seven receptions his rookie season with five of those coming in Week 2. Grant got very little playing time but will have a chance to move up the depth chart this season, competing for the No. 3 or 4 receiver spot for the Redskins. Grant runs routes pretty well for a youngster and has very good hands. He does lack a little speed, though, and isn't very physical.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Grant has the potential to do more this season but isn't going to have a huge role with the team. He could be worth a look in deep PPR formats but that is about it. He could get around 25 receptions for 300 yards with a score or two.

 #156  Brandon Tate Yr: 2014  TDs: 1  Yds: 193  Recpts: 17CincinnatiBye: 7 
 
Player News:
Tate got more work as a receiver last season than in recent years, catching 17 passes for nearly 200 yards. His reception total was the second highest of his career. Tate still got more work on special teams, though, getting chances to return punts and kicks. He remains more of a special teams player than a receiver. 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 very few chances in the passing game. 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' even after last season.

 #157  Ricardo Lockette Yr: 2014  TDs: 2  Yds: 195  Recpts: 11SeattleBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Lockette was pretty low on the depth chart much of the season for the Seahawks, catching just 11 passes for the season. He did get more work in the playoffs, though, having six receptions in three games. Lockette will try to move up the depth chart this season, looking to be the No. 3 or 4 receiver from day one. Lockette has some big-play ability. He has good size for the position and does well stretching the field. Lockette is remains pretty raw, though, and needs to sharpen his route running to earn more playing time.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Lockette can improve on last season but not enough to be a factor for fantasy teams. He could get around 25 receptions for 350 yards with a score or two.

 #158  Jacoby Jones Yr: 2014  TDs: 0  Yds: 131  Recpts: 9San DiegoBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Jones continues to get most of his playing time on special teams, serving as a top return man. He had just nine receptions last season but scored a return touchdown for the fourth straight season. Jones is one of the top return specialists in the league. Jones can help in the passing game, though, having 30-plus receptions four of the past five seasons. He should serve as a reserve receiver and top return man for the Chargers this 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 could see a bump in receptions this season but not enough to draft him in your fantasy league. He might get around 20 catches. He is a top pick in leagues that reward return yardage, though. He can make a difference in those formats.

 #159  Damaris Johnson Yr: 2014  TDs: 1  Yds: 331  Recpts: 31HoustonBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Johnson emerged as a solid No. 3 receiver for the Texans. He did well out of the slot, catching 31 passes for 331 yards. He set career highs in his first season with the Texans and should challenge for the No. 3 job this season. Johnson is a small receiver but runs well and makes plays after the catch. He isn't really a big-play receiver but moves the chains well and has reliable hands.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Johnson could improve a little on last season but don't expect a big change. He might be worth a look in deep PPR leagues, getting around 40 catches for 400 yards with a score or two.

 #160  Ted Ginn Jr. Yr: 2014  TDs: 0  Yds: 190  Recpts: 14CarolinaBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Ginn didn't get much work as a receiver last season but did well as a return man once again, scoring a return touchdown. He had just 14 receptions in a deep reserve role for the Cardinals. He heads back to Carolina this season, a team he had one of the better seasons of his career. Ginn had 36 receptions for the Panthers just two seasons back. He should serve as a reserve receiver for the Panthers and get plenty of work on special teams. Ginn has track speed, making him a good deep threat in the passing game and top return man. He struggles with drops, though, and isn't much of a route runner.

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

 #161  James Wright Yr: 2014  TDs: 0  Yds: 91  Recpts: 5CincinnatiBye: 7 
 
Player News:
Wright had five receptions for 91 yards in a limited role his rookie season. He did get some chances, though, and could move up the depth chart from day on this year. Wright will compete for the No. 3 receiver job with the Bengals. He played most special teams in college, but has made good strides as a receiver since entering the league. He could take a big step forward this season if he wins the No. 3 receiver job, which is possible.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Wright could surprise some, getting a few more chances to make plays. He is a playmaker, so look for the Bengals to give him some weekly shots. He could get around 30 catches and 500 total yards with a score or two.

 #162  Mike Campanaro Yr: 2014  TDs: 1  Yds: 102  Recpts: 7BaltimoreBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Campanaro didn't get much playing time his rookie season but made a few big plays with his chances. He caught seven passes for 102 yards and a touchdown. He had the most receptions of the season during the playoffs, though, catching four passes for 39 yards in the Ravens second playoff game. He is working his way up the depth chart and could be the No. 3 or 4 for the Ravens this year.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Campanaro should get more chances from day one this year but don't expect a ton of production. He could get around 20 or 30 receptions for 400 yards with a score or two. He is deep reserve material for fantasy teams.

 #163  Ryan Broyles Yr: 2014  TDs: 0  Yds: 25  Recpts: 2DetroitBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Broyles played last season but had just two catches in limited action. He has been plagued by major injuries throughout his career and is just trying to keep a roster spot, having done little since entering the league. 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 prevents him from playing a bigger role in the offense.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Broyles isn't a guy to draft because you can't trust him because of all the injuries. He might be a guy to grab off waivers if he starts getting playing time and producing, though. We wouldn't be too optimistic about him getting it going.

 #164  Corey Fuller Yr: 2014  TDs: 1  Yds: 212  Recpts: 14DetroitBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Fuller found his way on the field last season and served as the No. 3 receiver at times for the Lions. He didn't get a ton of work but finished with 14 receptions and had a stretch of four straight games with multiple receptions. He'll challenge for the No. 3 or 4 receiver spot this season. 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 he isn't very strong. He needs to add strength if he hopes to make more of an impact this season.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Fuller can improve on last year but isn't going to be a big impact fantasy player unless injury occurs. He could get around 25 receptions for 300 yards with a score or two.

 #165  Jeremy Ross Yr: 2014  TDs: 1  Yds: 314  Recpts: 24DetroitBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Ross moved his way up the depth chart in Detroit and was the No. 3 or 4 receiver for the Lions much of last season. He finished with a respectable 24 receptions, playing well with his chances. Ross got most of his work as a return man, though, a role he served very well. He'll try to have a similar role this season. Ross has good speed and playmaking ability with the ball in his hands. He has top speed and moves in space.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Ross isn't going to get much work as a receiver but will produce well as a return man. He could get around 20 catches for 200 yards.

 #166  Philly Brown Yr: 2014  TDs: 2  Yds: 296  Recpts: 21CarolinaBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Brown had a productive rookie season, eventually getting work as the No. 3 receiver for the Panthers. He finished with 21 receptions, including catches in six straight games to end his season and five receptions in two playoff games. He has a good chance to be the slot receiver for the Panthers from day one this year. Brown fits that role pretty well. He lacks some size for the receiver spot but runs good routes and makes plays in pace.

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

 #167  Brandon Lloyd Yr: 2014  TDs: 1  Yds: 294  Recpts: 14San FranciscoBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Lloyd found his way back into the league after not playing the last season. He didn't produce much in a reserve role for the 49ers but made a few big plays. He averaged 21 yards per reception and scored a touchdown on 14 receptions. He'll try to land a similar role this season. Lloyd is a top deep threat because of his speed and ability to stretch the field. His route running has really improved since entering the league but still isn't top notch. Lloyd has good hands and will make the acrobatic catch.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Lloyd is trending the wrong way. He returned last year but got few chances. Expect more of the same this year. He could get around 10 catches for 200 yards.

 #168  Albert Wilson Yr: 2014  TDs: 0  Yds: 260  Recpts: 16Kansas CityBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Wilson got more work late in the season his rookie year, getting a chance at a decent amount of playing time. He finished his season with 16 receptions but had three or more receptions three of the last four games of the year. Wilson will compete for the No. 3 or 4 receiver job this season. Wilson is a small receiver but seems a decent fit for the slot. He runs well and makes moves in space. He needs to continue to improve as a route runner, though, and get stronger overall.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Wilson isn't a very exciting fantasy option as a reserve receiver in an offense that doesn't throw much. He should improve some his second season but expect around 25 receptions for 350 yards with a score.

 #169  Chris Conley Kansas CityBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Conley will get a chance to compete for a starting job his rookie season with the Chiefs. Kansas City used a third-round pick on Conley, hoping to find a future starter at receiver. Conley has good size and athleticism for the position. He can make the circus catch and big-play down the field. He doesn't have great moves in space, though, and lacks a little top gear for the position.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Conley isn't going to produce big numbers in this offense, even if he is starting for the Chiefs. But he could be worth a spot start or two in the right matchup if he finds his way into the starting lineup. He could get around 40 receptions for 600 yards with a few scores.

 #170  Dontrelle Inman Yr: 2014  TDs: 0  Yds: 158  Recpts: 12San DiegoBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Inman didn't see the field until late in the year. He played a lot his last two games, though, and made plays, catching 12 passes for 158 yards. He had 75-plus yards each of those games, giving the Chargers something to think about for the coming year. Inman has a lot of competition at receiver, though. He'll try to win the No. 3 or 4 receiver spot for the team. Inman has good size at the receiver spot and does well stretching the field. He also has good strength, which is another plus. He needs to improve his route running and consistency to be a big factor in the NFL.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Inman probably should find the field more this year but don't expect big numbers. He'll be up and down in a reserve role. Expect around 30 receptions for 400 yards with a score or two.

 #171  Adam Thielen Yr: 2014  TDs: 1  Yds: 137  Recpts: 8MinnesotaBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Thielen found the field his second season in the league and caught eight passes in limited action. He caught seven of his passes in two games. Thielen served as the No. 5 receiver for the Vikings much of the year. He'll try to move up the depth chart this year but likely will help as a special teams player more than anything. Thielen has a little big-play ability at the receiver spot but lacks top speed and isn't a great route runner.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Thielen might get a few more chances this season but not many. He has a lot to compete with for playing time, which isn't a good sign for him. He might get around 15 catches for 250 yards.

 #172  Sammie Coates PittsburghBye: 11 
 
Player News:
The Steelers added another talented receiver to their team, taking Coates in the third-round of this year's draft. He isn't going to start his rookie season but serve as a No. 3 or 4 for the team, being used to stretch the field. Coates has great speed and was a top big-play receiver in college. He can make the tough catch downfield and has top speed to run by the defenders. He lacks polish, though, and will need to shore up his route running if he hopes to be a starter in this league.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Coates is a bit of a work in progress, so his fantasy value is limited some this season. He'll make some big plays but also disappear other weeks. He probably isn't worth owning outside of dynasty leagues. He could get 30 receptions for around 500 yards with a few scores.

 #173  Kamar Aiken  Yr: 2014  TDs: 3  Yds: 267  Recpts: 24BaltimoreBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Aiken had 11 receptions the last five games of the season after not catching a pass the first 12 weeks of the year. He got some chances as a No. 3 or 4 receiver for the Ravens and will compete for that role this year. Aiken had a knack for finding the end zone, scoring three times on the season. He has good size for the receiver spot and runs pretty well. He has been in the league several season, though, and last year was his first catching a pass, which isn't a great sign. He helps on special teams and as a depth player at receiver.

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

 #174  Rashad Greene JacksonvilleBye: 8 
 
Player News:
The Jaguars added more depth at receiver, taking Greene in the fifth round of this year's draft. Greene is likely the No. 4 or 5 receiver for the Jaguars his rookie season but could move up the depth chart quickly if he plays well. Greene could be a starter in a season or two. Greene is a solid athlete that catches the ball well and is a good route runner for a young player. He does well as a deep threat but also can do well on the underneath routes. He lacks a little size and strength, though, and plays more like a complimentary receiver than a star.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Greene isn't going to produce big numbers in this offense as a deep reserve his rookie season. He might get around 25 receptions for 400 yards with a few scores.

 #175  Joshua Cribbs Yr: 2014  TDs: 0  Yds: 8  Recpts: 1---Bye:  
 
Player News:
Cribbs played just six games for the Colts last season, getting about all his work on special teams. He caught just a pass. Cribbs has 10 receptions the last three seasons. He can still help as a return man but that is about it. He'll try to win that role this coming season. 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 - maybe get a handful of receptions.

 #176  Duron Carter IndianapolisBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Carter had some good success in the CFL, which landed him a chance to play in the NFL. The Colts signed him this offseason and will give him a chance to win a roster spot. Carter is the son of Cris Carter, so the pedigree is there for Carter to do well. But Carter isn't an exciting talent. He lacks some top-end talent. He isn't a speed burner and doesn't make a ton of big plays after the catch. He runs pretty good routes, though, and his hands are solid.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Carter might be overvalued some draft day. Don't draft him based on his name. He isn't too exciting of a player. He might get some chances in this pass-first offense but don't expect dependable fantasy numbers. He could get 30 or so receptions for 450 yards with a few scores.

 #177  Andre Caldwell Yr: 2014  TDs: 0  Yds: 47  Recpts: 5DenverBye: 7 
 
Player News:
Caldwell battled a knee injury last season but also got little playing time regardless of the injury. He caught just five passes all season, falling down the depth chart in Denver. Caldwell will likely serve as a No. 4 or 5 receiver again this year. His days of being more of an impact player are nearing an end. Caldwell has decent size and good speed. He doesn't have a ton of big-play ability. Caldwell has improved as a route runner and his hands are better than earlier in his career.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Caldwell had a chance to grab a bigger role last season but that didn't happen. Don't expect a big change this year. He could get around 10 catches for 100 yards.

 #178  Kris Durham Yr: 2014  TDs: 0  Yds: 54  Recpts: 6OaklandBye: 6 
 
Player News:
Durham caught six passes in a reserve role for the Titans last season, getting all his playing time late in the year. It wasn't the follow up to his career season as expected and not a great sign for his future. He'll try to win a No. 3 or 4 receiver job this season. 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 isn't a guy to take in your draft. He is a long shot to improve on last season.

 #179  Stefon Diggs MinnesotaBye: 5 
 
Player News:
The Vikings used a fifth-round draft pick on Diggs. He will compete for a reserve spot with the team his rookie season. Diggs is a pretty physical receiver that does well in making plays downfield. He isn't afraid to go over the middle and make the tough catch. He also has good moves in space and can be a solid return man. He lacks some polish and maturity, though, which will need to improve if he hopes to be a dependable pro receiver.

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

 #180  Vince Mayle ClevelandBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Mayle lands in a good spot to make an impact his rookie season. The Browns have some openings at receiver, so Mayle could move up the depth chart quickly if he plays well in camp and preseason action. Mayle is a big, strong receiver that plays physical at the positon. He'll make the tough catch in traffic and his size makes him a tough cover for the opposition. He lacks a little top speed, though, and could use help with his route running. He'll likely be the No. 4 or 5 for the Browns this season.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Mayle has some potential but probably won't reach that for a few seasons. He is a bit of a reach as a reserve in this offense his rookie season. He might get around 20 receptions for 300 yards with a score or two.

 #181  T.J. Graham Yr: 2014  TDs: 1  Yds: 87  Recpts: 3New York JetsBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Graham didn't do much in his first season for the Jets. He had just three receptions. Graham made some big plays with those catches, though, totaling 87 yards and a touchdown. He had two straight seasons of 20-plus catches until last year. But falling to get much playing time on a team that needs receiver help isn't a good sign for Graham. He is just trying to keep a roster spot. 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: Cold
Graham might get a little more playing time this year but not much. He isn't likely to set career highs, making him a reach for fantasy teams.

 #182  Greg Little Yr: 2014  TDs: 0  Yds: 69  Recpts: 6CincinnatiBye: 7 
 
Player News:
Little landed with the Bengals last season and didn't get many chances with his new team, catching just six passes on the season. Little had 40-plus receptions three straight seasons before last year. He has some ability and can help in a reserve role. 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 continues to lack polish, though, and struggles with his concentration.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Little's career is going the wrong direction. He isn't much of a fantasy threat. He could improve on last season but not enough to be worth grabbing come draft day. He might get around 20 receptions for 250 yards with a score.

 #183  Dane Sanzenbacher Yr: 2014  TDs: 0  Yds: 105  Recpts: 9CincinnatiBye: 7 
 
Player News:
The Bengals had some injuries at receiver, leading to some chances for Sanzenbacher. He caught nine passes on the season and had 40 or more yards two games. Sanzenbacher has enjoyed some past success but seems best suited to be a No. 4 or 5 receiver. Sanzenbacher plays bigger than his size and does well in moving the chains. Sanzenbacher does struggle with some drops at times, which doesn't help his chances for consistent playing time.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Sanzenbacher is going to be really hit or miss in a deep reserve role. He might get around 10 catches for 130 yard, making him a guy to avoid come draft day.

 #184  Vincent Brown Yr: 2014  TDs: 0  Yds: 118  Recpts: 12IndianapolisBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Brown played with the Raiders last season and had 12 receptions in seven games. He didn't get many chances with his new team, falling down the depth chart for a team looking for receiver help. Brown has never topped 500 yards in a season and his career high in receptions is 41. He hasn't progressed as expected. Brown isn't a big target, but runs 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. His lack of speed seems to be holding him back from playing a bigger role in the NFL.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Brown is going the wrong way and isn't likely to see a big turnaround this season with the Colts. He might get around 20 catches if all goes well for him.

 #185  Robert Meachem Yr: 2014  TDs: 0  Yds: 114  Recpts: 7New OrleansBye: 11 
 
Player News:
A move back to New Orleans was supposed to revive Meachem's career but that wasn't the case. He caught just seven passes last year, serving a deep reserve role for the team. Meachem had three straight 40 or more catch seasons before having just 37 receptions the last three seasons. His career is going in the wrong direction. He'll challenge for a roster spot this season. 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:  
Meachem is clearly trending the wrong way. Don't expect a turnaround. He might get around 10 receptions if he makes a team.

 #186  Tavarres King Yr: 2014  TDs: 0  Yds: 13  Recpts: 2Tampa BayBye: 6 
 
Player News:
King bounced around a few teams last season before landing on the Bucs. He caught two passes the last game of the season for his only receptions of the season. King has just two catches in two NFL seasons. He is just trying to keep an NFL roster spot. King 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 the past.

Fantasy Outlook:  
King could actually get some playing time but don't expect much. He isn't a guy to draft. He might get 15 catches for 200 yards and a score.

 #187  Aldrick Robinson Yr: 2014  TDs: 0  Yds: 6  Recpts: 1BaltimoreBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Robinson caught a pass in six games for the Redskins last season. This was a decent drop off after having double-digit receptions two straight seasons. The Redskins cut him before last season was out. He was signed by the Ravens and will compete for a roster spot with his new team this season. 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 might get a little more playing time but don't expect much. He is long shot to be a help for fantasy teams. He could get around 15 receptions for 200 yards and a score.

 #188  Ty Montgomery Green BayBye: 7 
 
Player News:
Montgomery didn't land in a great place for a lot of playing time as a rookie but has some great players to learn from and gets to play in a receiver-friendly offense. He'll likely be a No. 4 receiver his rookie season but could be a bigger factor for the Packers in a few seasons. Montgomery certainly looks the part of an NFL receiver. He has good size and can make the acrobatic catch. He can stretch the field but also do well on shorter routes. His hands can be an issue, though, and he didn't make a ton of big plays in college.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Montgomery isn't going to make a big impact as a rookie unless injury occurs. Until that happens, don't bother with him on your roster. He might get 20 receptions for around 250 yards with a couple scores.

 #189  Darren Waller BaltimoreBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Waller isn't a polished product by any means but should be used his rookie season by the Ravens to stretch the field. Waller is a huge receiver with great athleticism. If he can put it all together, he could be a matchup nightmare for the opposition. He is really raw, though, and needs a lot of work at the position going forward. He'll be a deep reserve his rookie year.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Waller could make a few big plays this season but will be a risk for fantasy teams because you never know when they'll happen. He could get around 20 receptions for 400 yards with a couple scores.

 #190  Darrius Heyward-Bey Yr: 2014  TDs: 0  Yds: 33  Recpts: 3PittsburghBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Heyward-Bey caught just three passes in a reserve role for the Steelers last season. He was passed on the depth chart by younger receivers with more promise. Heyward-Bey has more than 600 yards two of six seasons but just 342 yards the past two seasons. His career is trending the wrong way. He will try to win a reserve role this season. Heyward-Bey will get a chance to stretch the field on occasion but get more work on special teams than as a receiver. His route running isn't the best and drops continue to plague him. He remains a great straight-line runner, though, making him a legit deep threat.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Heyward-Bey has little potential at this stage of his career. Unless he starts getting some chances to stretch the field, don't bother with him on your team. He might get 15 catches for 200 yards.

 #191  Greg Salas Yr: 2014  TDs: 0  Yds: 167  Recpts: 8DetroitBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Salas made a few big plays as a reserve for the Jets last year before landing on Injured Reserve late in the year. He had just eight receptions but gained 167 yards, averaging 20.9 yards per reception. Salas has 43 career receptions in four seasons but did most of his damage his rookie year. He hasn't made much progress since then. He will challenge for a roster spot with the Lions 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 the last three seasons, which is a concern going forward. Don't count on him playing much again this year. Go with safer options come draft day.

 #192  Kenny Bell Tampa BayBye: 6 
 
Player News:
Bell has two really good receivers to learn from in Tampa but is going to start his career pretty low on the depth chart. He'll likely be the No. 4 or 5 receiver for the Bucs his rookie season. Bell is a receiver that plays a little bigger than his size. He doesn't shy away from contact and isn't afraid to make the tough catch in traffic. Bell isn't a very good route runner and could add some strength to his frame to be a more effective receiver in the NFL.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Bell is going to get sporadic playing time in this offense. He has a lot to compete with for targets, making him a reach for fantasy teams right now. He might get around 15 receptions for 250 yards and a score.

 #193  Jamison Crowder WashingtonBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Crowder has a chance to grab the No. 3 or slot receiver role with the Redskins his rookie season. He is a small receiver but has good moves in space and knows how to get open. He gets by with his speed and quickness at this point of his career. Crowder lacks some bulk and height, which likely limits him from playing on the outside in the NFL.

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

 #194  Justin Hardy AtlantaBye: 10 
 
Player News:
The Falcons hope to have found an eventual starter at receiver, taking Hardy in the fourth round of this year's draft. Hardy was a big-time producer in college. He is a great route runner for a young player and has good hands. He also does a good job of making plays on a ball in the air despite lacking a little size. Hardy doesn't have top-end speed and isn't quite as gifted as some of the other top receivers in the game. He'll likely be No. 3 or 4 on the depth chart for the Falcons his rookie season.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Hardy will get some work as a rookie but has more value in another few seasons once he has a bigger role offensively. For now, expect around 30 receptions for 400 yards with a few scores. He isn't worth a draft pick just yet.

 #195  DeAndre Smelter San FranciscoBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Smelter is recovering from a torn ACL, suffered late in his college career, so his draft stock took a bit of a hit. He has some ability, though, and could turn into a solid pro once healthy. Smelter is a big, strong receiver that plays a physical game at receiver. He is a good athlete with plus hands. His injury is a concern going forward but once he gets up to speed, he could be the No. 3 or 4 receiver for the 49ers this season.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Smelter is a long shot to do much as a rookie, coming back from a major injury on a team that doesn't produce great fantasy receivers. He could get around 20 receptions for 300 yards with a score or two.

 #196  Jamarcus Nelson ArizonaBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Nelson might be the fastest receiver to come out of the draft this year. He has blazing speed and can make plenty of plays in space. He could be a top slot receiver once he gets up to speed in the pro game. Nelson is very small, though, lacking size and strength. He gets pushed around easily and could struggle against physical cornerbacks. He should be the No. 4 or 5 receiver for the Cardinals his rookie season.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Nelson has playmaking ability, so he'll get some chances as a rookie. But he isn't going to get consistent work. He could get around 20 catches for 300 yards with a score or two. He isn't worth drafting for fantasy teams.

 #197  Keith Mumphery HoustonBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Mumphery was a fifth-round pick in this year's draft. He will compete for the No. 4 or 5 receiver role as a rookie for the Texans. Mumphery is a physical receiver. He has good size and strength for the position. He also catches the ball well and will make the acrobatic catch in traffic. He lacks some speed for the position, though, and could struggle to separate from defenders.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Mumphery could be a bigger factor in a few seasons but isn't likely to get enough playing time as a rookie to help fantasy teams. He could get around 15 catches for 200 yards with a touchdown.
