2016 DRAFT GUIDE
By Jeff Paur

Quarterbacks:

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

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



Running Backs:

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

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


Wide Receivers:

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

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

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


Tight Ends:

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

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


Kickers:

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

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

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


Def / STs:

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

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

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


Updated: 06/23/16
 #1  David Johnson (RB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 8  Yds: 581  Rush: 125ArizonaBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Johnson found his way into the starting lineup late last season and was an elite back in that role. He was a fantasy force down the stretch, having 100-plus total yards four of five games to end the season and five touchdowns during that stretch. He didn't have double-digit carries until Week 13 of the season but still finished seventh overall in fantasy running back scoring. He is going to start from day one for the Cardinals this season. Johnson does well between the tackles but has plenty of speed to make plays to the outside. He also catches the ball very well and is a home-run threat with the ball in his hands. He is a complete back in an explosive offense. Fantasy Outlook: There is always risk with players similar to Johnson (i.e. C.J. Anderson last year), but Johnson sure looks like the real deal. He plays in a great offense, is a three-down back, and was very durable in college. Consider him a top-five fantasy back heading into this year. He can get around 1,700 total yards and 14 touchdowns in this offense.
 #2  Adrian Peterson (RB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 11  Yds: 1485  Rush: 327MinnesotaBye: 6 
 
Player News:
Peterson returned from his nearly year-long suspension last season and didn't seem to miss a beat. He led the NFL in rushing and finished second overall in fantasy running back season. It was another very good showing for Peterson. He had seven 100-yard games and ran for nearly 1,500 yards. He also scored 11 touchdowns. If there was a knock on Peterson last year, it was a lack of work in the passing game. He caught just 30 passes, which is down some compared to his last few full seasons. Peterson remains the top back for the Vikings and should continue to get plenty of work. He is 31 years old but hasn't shown many signs of slowing down. He keeps himself in great shape and his almost year off the previous season could help the longevity of his career. Peterson has eight 1,000-yard seasons and double-digit touchdowns every year in the NFL that he has played a full season. Peterson is as explosive as any back in the game. He looks like a man among boys. Peterson can run over tacklers but also has great speed to break a big play every time he touches the ball. Fantasy Outlook: Peterson is getting older, which is a concern, but you still have to consider him a top-three fantasy back. You can even make a case for taking him first overall but he does carry some risk because of his age and tendency to get nicked up some during the year. But if he plays a full year, expect another season with around 1,700 total yards and double-digit touchdowns. He remains as consistent as any fantasy back in the game.
 #3  Odell Beckham Jr. (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 13  Yds: 1450  Recpts: 96New York GiantsBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Beckham had a big second season, topping all his numbers from the previous year. He missed a game but finished just four receptions short of 100 and had more than 1,400-receiving yards and 13 touchdowns. He had eight 100-yard games in 15 games played. He also had seven games with double-digit receptions. Beckham finished the season with touchdowns in five of his last six games. Beckham was fifth overall in fantasy receiver scoring despite missing a game. He is the clear top target in this offense and one of the elite receivers in all of football. Beckham is a top athlete with plus 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 is already a pretty complete receiver despite being in the league just two years. Fantasy Outlook: Beckham has a chance to be the top overall fantasy receiver. He plays in a pass-first offense and in the prime of his career. He is a legit first-round pick - maybe even a top-five option. He can get around 110 receptions for 1,500 yards and 15 or so touchdowns.
 #4  Le'Veon Bell (RB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 3  Yds: 556  Rush: 113PittsburghBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Bell started the season suspended and ended hurt, injuring his knee in Week 8. The good news is he avoided a torn ACL, but damaged his MCL and PCL. These injuries are slightly easier to return from, giving him a good chance to be ready for Week 1 of this year. Bell played a very high level before getting hurt, totaling 692 yards and three touchdowns in six games. Bell might be the most complete back in the game right now. Bell is a big back with strength and speed. He will run over defenders but also has good moves in space. Bell is one of the top pass catchers at running back in the game and is a huge asset in pass protection. Fantasy Outlook: Coming back from injury is a little bit of a concern, but Bell remains capable of being first overall in fantasy scoring despite that. He has huge potential in this offense, getting tons of weekly touches. Consider him at least a top-three back come draft day. He is capable of carrying fantasy teams any given weeks. Count on about 1,900 total yards and double-digit touchdowns with 70 receptions.
 #5  Todd Gurley (RB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 10  Yds: 1106  Rush: 229Los AngelesBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Gurley missed the first two games of his rookie season as he recovered from a torn ACL and sat out the last game of the season because of injury, but still finished ninth overall in fantasy running back scoring. He had 1,294 total yards and 10 touchdowns. He had five 100-yard gams and averaged 4.8 yards per carry, running behind a poor offensive line much of the year. He is already one of the top backs in all of football. He is a big back but also possesses very good speed. He does a great job of breaking tackles and making plays after contact. Gurley is great at making the big play and an improving receiver, catching 21 passes as a rookie. Gurley can be a special back in this league as long as he is healthy. Fantasy Outlook: Gurley has a chance to be the top overall fantasy back this season. He has huge potential in this run-first offense. He is a top-five fantasy pick this season. Gurley can get around 1,800 to 1,900 total yards and 13 touchdowns with 40 or so receptions.
 #6  Jordy Nelson (WR) Green BayBye: 4 
 
Player News:
Nelson missed all of last season because of a torn ACL suffered during the preseason. He'll be ready to go for the start of this year and resume his role as the No. 1 receiver for the Packers. Before last season, Nelson had at least 1,200-receiving yards three of the past four years. 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:  
Don't forget about Nelson because of his injury last season. He is a legit top-10 fantasy receiver. The Packers sorely missed him last year. He is going to get a ton of targets this year.

 #7  Antonio Brown (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 10  Yds: 1834  Recpts: 136PittsburghBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Brown had a few rare down games for his standards when Ben Roethlisberger was out hurt, but even with that all said, he finished first overall in fantasy receiver scoring and set several career highs. He caught a remarkable 136 passes and finished with more than 1,800-receiving yards and 10 touchdowns. He had one of the best seasons for a receiver in the history of football. He had nine 100-yard games and five games with double-digit receptions. Brown is the best at his position right now. He has three straight seasons with at least 110 receptions and 1,400-receiving yards. Brown has top speed and great hands. He is good at making plays after the catch, showing explosiveness for the big play. Brown is a top route running, making him a top possession receiver as well as a big-play threat. He is the complete package at receiver. And at age 28. he is in the prime of his career. Fantasy Outlook: You can make a strong case for taking Brown first overall in PPR formats. He is worth taking in that spot because of his consistency and great weekly numbers. He is the top receiver in our rankings this year. It might be hard for him to repeat his off the charts season last year, but he can come close. Expect around 130 receptions for 1,700 yards and 11 or so touchdowns. You won't find a more consistent fantasy receiver in the game than Brown.
 #8  Ezekiel Elliott (RB) DallasBye: 7 
 
Player News:
The Cowboys got their franchise back in the draft, taking Elliott with their first pick. Elliott is a three-down back that should excel in this offense from day one. He has very good vision and breakaway speed. Elliott can do the job inside or outside when running the ball. He also is a plus pass catcher and a willing blocker. He'll be the top back in this offense for years to come, starting from day one for the Cowboys.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Elliott is a legit No. 1 fantasy back his rookie season. He gets to run behind a great offensive line and play in a plus offense. He'll get plenty of chances to make plays for the Cowboys. A season with a round 1,700 total yards, 12 touchdowns and around 40 receptions is a really possibility for Elliott.

 #9  Rob Gronkowski (TE) Yr: 2015  TDs: 11  Yds: 1176  Recpts: 72New EnglandBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Gronk had another one of his huge seasons last year. He topped 1,000 yards for the third time in his career and scored 11 touchdowns. He was first overall in fantasy tight end scoring. He had five 100-yard games and finished with 72 receptions. Gronk has double-digit touchdowns all but one season in the NFL. He is the top tight end in the game right now. He does have an injury history, which is always a concern, but is the top target in this offense as long as he is playing. Gronk has tremendous size, runs solid routes and has enough speed to make plays downfield. He is the complete package at tight end.

Fantasy Outlook:  
   Gronk is the clear No. 1 fantasy tight end, worthy of being selected in the first round of fantasy drafts. He is a difference maker at a top-heavy position. Gronk produces more like a No. 1 fantasy receiver than tight end. You always have to worry about injuries with him but as long as he is playing, expect around 80 receptions for 1,200 yards and 12 touchdowns.

 #10  Devonta Freeman (RB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 11  Yds: 1056  Rush: 265AtlantaBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Freeman opened his second season splitting carries but quickly took over as starter and had a breakout year in that role. He was the top rated fantasy back last season, beating out Adrian Peterson for that honor. Freeman had 1,634 total yards and 14 touchdowns. He had an amazing 73 receptions, doing a great job in the passing game. Freeman had four 100-yard games. He did seem to tire out some late in the year, having fewer than 80-rushing yards his last seven games. He is going to be the starter from day one this year. Freeman showed it all last season, running with power, breaking plays to the outside and making tons of plays in the passing game. He is a complete back for the Falcons and should continue to get plenty of work going forward. He is a big-play back and can make a something happen every time he touches the ball. Fantasy Outlook: Freeman will have a hard time repeating last year, but we still like him to do very well. He is the real deal, especially if you consider how well he does in the passing game. He is a top-five fantasy back this season and should go in the first round of most leagues. Expect around 1,500 total yards and double-digit scores with around 65 receptions.
 #11  DeAndre Hopkins (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 11  Yds: 1521  Recpts: 111HoustonBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Hopkins didn't let erratic quarterback play deter his season. He had a career year, taking his game to a new level as the No. 1 receiver for the Texans. He finished fourth overall in fantasy receiver scoring, having at least five receptions in all but a game. He had more than 100 receptions and 1,500 yards for the first time in his career. He also scored 11 touchdowns. Hopkins was a model of consistency. He should be setup for similar things this year as the top target in this offense. 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. He has back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons. Fantasy Outlook: Hopkins is an elite fantasy receiver. Last year wasn't a fluke for him. He will keep getting it done and could even improve if he gets more consistent quarterback play. He is a top-five fantasy receiver for this season. Hopkins has a legit chance to get 115 receptions for 1,500 yards and double-digit touchdowns.
 #12  Lamar Miller (RB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 8  Yds: 872  Rush: 194HoustonBye: 9 
 
Player News:
His season was overlooked a little because the Dolphins disappointed, but Miller was sixth overall in fantasy running back scoring. He was a pretty consistent back in a pass-first offense. Miller had 1,269 total yards and 10 touchdowns. He failed to have double-digit carries six times but still produced this very good numbers. He was a big plus in the passing game, catching 47 passes. Miller is a legit top NFL starting back. He has back-to-back seasons of 1,000-plus total yards and averages 4.6 yards per carry for his career. Miller is a home-run threat with the ball in his hands. He has track speed - actually running some track in college. He can get to the next level in a hurry. Miller isn't a huge back, though, and lacks a little thump for the position. He catches the ball very well out of the backfield, having at least 38 receptions two straight seasons. A move to the Texans is a positive for Miller, getting a chance for more carries in an offense that will run the ball more. He should see more overall touches with his new team. Fantasy Outlook: Miller is a legit top-10 fantasy back, especially with his move to Houston. He is going to get a lot of work. Just look at what Arian Foster did in this offense. Miller is a big-play threat that catches a ton of passes. He'll have very good total yardage numbers and don't overlook that he has at least nine scores two straight seasons. He also finds the end zone. Expect around 1,600 total yards and 10 touchdowns with 40 or so receptions. He is a second-round pick come draft day.
 #13  Mark Ingram (RB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 6  Yds: 769  Rush: 166New OrleansBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Ingram missed the last four games of the season because of a shoulder injury but still managed to finish 12th overall in fantasy running back scoring. He was having another fine overall season before getting injured, finishing with 1,174 total yards and six touchdowns. His total yards was a career high. He is yet to have a 1,000-yard rushing season, though. Ingram is the top back in this productive offense. He is a big, physical back capable of moving the pile while running well between the tackles. He is a punishing runner with good vision and the ability to break off some long runs despite just so-so speed. He has really improved as a receiver, getting on the field more and more in passing situations. Ingram has some injury concerns, missing games each of the past three seasons. Fantasy Outlook: Ingram has injury issues but can be a top-five fantasy back if he plays a full season in this offense. Consider him a low-end No. 1 because of the injury concerns, though. He can get around 1,500 total yards and 10 touchdowns with around 50 receptions.
 #14  Dez Bryant (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 3  Yds: 401  Recpts: 31DallasBye: 7 
 
Player News:
Bryant had an injury-plagued season, missing plenty of action. He also didn't do much when playing, having just one 100-yard game. The Cowboys were a different team with Tony Romo out most of the season, leaving a huge hole at quarterback. Bryant should be back healthy and as the clear top target in the passing. Before last season, Bryant had three straight seasons with at least 12 touchdowns and 1,200-receiving yards. 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: Don't forget about Bryant because of last year's injury-plagued season. He is a top red-zone threat in a pass-first offense. He can return to top-five fantasy receiver status if all goes well for him. A season with around 90 receptions, 1,300 yards and 12 touchdowns seems about right for Bryant.
 #15  Kelvin Benjamin (WR) CarolinaBye: 7 
 
Player News:
Benjamin tore his ACL during training camp last year and missed the entire season. He returns as the No. 1 receiver for the Panthers. He was 16th in fantasy receiver scoring as a rookie, so things are looking good for Benjamin going forward, especially in a passing game that was very good last season. 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 could be a top-10 fantasy receiver this season. He has a huge upside in this terrific offense. He is coming off a major injury but is going to get a ton of targets, especially in the red zone for the Panthers. He could get 85 receptions for 1,200 yards and 12 touchdowns.

 #16  Eddie Lacy (RB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 3  Yds: 758  Rush: 187Green BayBye: 4 
 
Player News:
Lacy had a hugely disappointing season last year, splitting work with James Starks much of the year. He ran for just more than 750 yards and scored just five touchdowns. He did have three 100-yard games but averred just four yards per carry. The Packers were not happy with his fitness and want him to lose a lot of weight this offseason. Lacy will get first crack at the starter's job as long as he is in shape. Lacy had two straight 1,000-yard seasons before last year. He is just 26 years old and should be in the prime of his career. Lacy has great size for the position and runs with a lot of power. He isn't a finesse back but has pretty good moves in space but does his best work between the tackles. He also isn't a bad receiver as evident by his reception totals his first three seasons. Lacy isn't a top big-play back but will break off some long runs in this top offense. Fantasy Outlook: Lacy can return to elite fantasy back status as long as he is in shape and motivated, which he should be after last season. Expect a rebound season. Lacy is a good buy-low candidate in this great offense. He can get around 1,300 total yards and double-digit scores with 30 or so receptions.
 #17  Thomas Rawls (RB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 4  Yds: 830  Rush: 147SeattleBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Rawls was a huge surprise his rookie season. Despite being undrafted, he emerged as the top backup for the Seahawks in the preseason and took over the starting role for the team when Marshawn Lynch was injured. Rawls had 906 total yards and five touchdowns in 13 games. Rawls is the favorite to start for the Seahawks this season. He is going to get first shot to start. Rawls is a small back but run with power and has good speed to make plays to the outside. He can get to the next level in a hurry. Rawls is a very good one-cut runner. He needs work in the passing game but should improve in that area with more seasoning.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Rawls has a chance to be a low-end No. 1 for fantasy teams in his second season. The only thing holding him back is his lack of work in the passing game. He can produce big in this offense, though, as the lead back. He can get around 1,500 total yards and double-digit scores.

 #18  Jeremy Langford (RB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 6  Yds: 537  Rush: 148ChicagoBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Langford got plenty of starts his rookie season because of an injury to Matt Forte. Langford did well in that role, finishing with 816 total yards and seven touchdowns. He didn't have a 100-yard rushing game but topped 70-rushing yards three times. He also caught the ball very well, finishing with 22 receptions. Langford should be the starter from day one this year for the Bears. Langford is a rare three-down back. He can make big plays, run between the tackles and does very well as a receiver. He could bulk up a little and make more plays after contact but should improve in those areas over time. Fantasy Outlook: Langford has a lot of potential as a starter. He could be a low-end No. 1 back in this offense, especially if you consider all the work he should get in the passing game. He can finish with around 1,300 total yards, 45 receptions and 10 scores.
 #19  C.J. Anderson (RB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 5  Yds: 720  Rush: 152DenverBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Anderson had an erratic season, failing to capitalize on his great finish to the previous year. The good news is Anderson finished last season very well and should have momentum going forward to this year. He split work much of the regular season, finishing with 903 total yards and five touchdowns. But he was the top runner for the Broncos during their Super Bowl run, having at least 72-rushing yards all three playoff games. He also scored twice and finished with 273 total yards. He should get first crack at the starter's job this season for the Broncos. Anderson knows what it takes now to earn that starting job. As long as he doesn't have a slip up during the offseason, the future is bright for Anderson this coming year. Anderson is a good fit for the offense. Anderson runs with some power but has some good moves when he gets outside the tackles. Anderson is best between the tackles, though, churning out the tough yards. He also catches the ball pretty well and continues to improve in that area. Fantasy Outlook: Anderson burnt many teams last year but you have to like his potential for the coming season. His price tag should be much cheaper. Don't be surprised if he emerges as a low-end No. 1 for fantasy teams. He can get around 1,400 total yards and double-digit touchdowns.
 #20  Demaryius Thomas (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 6  Yds: 1304  Recpts: 105DenverBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Thomas found the end zone just six times last year but finished with 105 receptions for 1,304 yards. He had another very good season as the No. 1 receiver for the Broncos. He had at least five receptions in all but two games. He was a very consistent target. And while Peyton Manning is an all-time great, it might be a good thing for Thomas to have a different quarterback throwing him passes this season. He had some of his better games of the season when Brock Osweiler was throwing him passes. Thomas has four straight seasons with 90-plus catches and 1,300-plus yards. 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. His lack of scores last year was more of a fluke than a trend. Expect a rebound in that area, making him a clear top-10 fantasy receiver. He'll get around 100 receptions for 1,400 yards and double-digit scores.
 #21  A.J. Green (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 10  Yds: 1297  Recpts: 86CincinnatiBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Green had another solid season as the top receiver for the Bengals. He had four 100-yard games and finished with 10 touchdowns. He finished just three yards shy of 1,300 yards and caught 86 passes. Green had at least three receptions all but a game. Green has five straight 1,000-yard seasons to start his career. Green is a playmaker. He has size, speed and runs routes at a high level. 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 if he gets the chances. Fantasy Outlook: Green is an elite fantasy receiver but just outside that top group because he plays in a more balanced offense. He won't get quite the targets as a guy like Antonio Brown. But even with that said, he'll produce big numbers. Look for him to finish with around 95 receptions for 1,400 yards and 11 touchdowns.
 #22  Jeremy Hill (RB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 11  Yds: 794  Rush: 223CincinnatiBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Hill had a very disappointing second season. He averaged just 3.6 yards per carry and failed to have a 100-yard game all year. The thing that saved him for fantasy teams was his scores, getting 12 overall touchdowns. The touchdowns helped him finished 20th overall in fantasy running back scoring despite rushing for fewer than 800 yards and catching just 15 passes. He also had fumbling issues, losing three during the regular season and a big one during the Bengals only playoff game. Hill needs to get it together this offseason if he hopes to remain a big part of this offense. He needs to get in better shape and find a way to hold onto the ball better. He'll split duties again this year but will get first crack at getting the most carries for the Bengals. Hill is a big back that does a good job of getting downhill in a hurry. Hill also catches the ball pretty well, having 42 receptions in two seasons despite getting little chances in that area. He doesn't have great moves in space but will surprise with his speed and agility. Fantasy Outlook: Hill was a bust last year but is young enough to turn it around. Don't totally give up on him yet, especially if he keeps getting the goal-line work in the explosive offense. But for now, you have to consider him more of a No. 2 back for fantasy teams. You can't overpay for him because he gets little work in the passing game. He can finish with around 1,100 total yards and double-digit scores.
 #23  Doug Martin (RB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 6  Yds: 1402  Rush: 288Tampa BayBye: 6 
 
Player News:
Martin was a big surprise last year, finishing fourth overall in fantasy running back scoring after doing little the last few seasons. He had a big rebound year, being surrounded by better offensive talent. Martin topped 1,400-rushing yards and caught 33 passes. He finished with 1,673 total yards and seven touchdowns. He had four 100-yard rushing games and double-digit carries every game. His rushing totals weren't a career high but the firs time he had 1,000 yards since his rookie year. Martin proved he still has plenty left in the tank at age 27. He'll continue to be a big part of this offense. Martin does well between the tackles but also has enough speed to break plays to the outside. He isn't a huge back but runs with some power and has good moves in the open field. He also is a good receiver out of the backfield, giving him another way to touch the ball often. Fantasy Outlook: The only knock on Martin is he loses out on some goal-line chances. The rest of his resume looks great right now. He can near last season's numbers in this offense. Martin can get around 1,500 total yards and eight touchdowns with 35 or so receptions. He is a late first or second-round pick.
 #24  Latavius Murray (RB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 6  Yds: 1066  Rush: 266OaklandBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Murray was the starter from day one last season and enjoyed his first 1,000-yard season as a pro. He had nearly 1,300 total yards and six touchdowns. Murray had just two 100-yard games despite getting double-digit carries in every game. He did well as a receiver, though, catching 41 passes. He tried to make the big play too often at times last year, which led to him averaging just four yards per carry. He is the starter for the Raiders, though, and should continue to grow in that role. Murray is more of a power back but has enough speed to make plays on the outside. Murray has great size for the position and runs with power. He also has pretty good speed for his size and catches the ball well out of the backfield. He does a little bit of everything and does it all pretty well. Fantasy Outlook: Murray can build on last season and be a top-10 or even top-five fantasy back in this emerging offense. He is a fantasy player on the rise. He is a rare three-down back that can get around 1,500 total yards and nine touchdowns with 40 or so receptions.
 #25  Matt Forte (RB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 4  Yds: 898  Rush: 218New York JetsBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Forte missed three games because of injury last season but still finished eighth overall in fantasy running back scoring. He had another very productive year as the starter for the Bears. Forte had 1,287 total yards and seven touchdowns in 13 games. He did have just one 100-yard rushing game but his 44 receptions helped pad his overall yardage totals. Forte is 30 years old this season and missed some time because of injury last year, so you have to wonder how much he has left in the tank. A move to the Jets isn't a bad thing for Forte, getting to play in a more run-first offense. He should get his touches with his new team. Forte has 1,000-yard rushing seasons five of eight. He has more than 1,000 total yards every season in the NFL. Forte has good size and runs hard. He isn't a huge big-play back but will make some big plays. He'll churn out some tough yards and make a lot of plays out of the backfield as a receiver. Forte is a solid overall NFL back. Fantasy Outlook: Forte could slow down a little this year but still consider him a low-end No. 1 for fantasy teams, especially with the position being watered down a little. He has been very consistent through the years, so expect around 1,500 total yards and double-digit scores. He'll continue to get plenty of work in the passing game for the Jets.
 #26  Allen Robinson (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 14  Yds: 1400  Recpts: 80JacksonvilleBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Robinson had a breakout second season, finishing sixth overall in fantasy receiver scoring. He scored 14 touchdowns and finished with 1,400 yards. He had six 100-yard games and touchdowns six of his last seven games. Robinson had at least three receptions all but two games. Robinson is the top target in the Jaguars pass-first offense. 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 will drop some passes but improved in that area last season. His route running also is really getting better, becoming a complete receiver. Fantasy Outlook: Robinson might have a hard time repeating last season, mainly because his touchdown totals aren't likely to be matched. His other numbers should be very similar, though. Robinson is the real deal. He is a top-10 fantasy receiver. Expect around 85 receptions for 1,400 yards and 11 or so touchdowns.
 #27  Alshon Jeffery (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 4  Yds: 807  Recpts: 54ChicagoBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Jeffery had an injury-plagued season but was huge when playing. He had four 100-yard games in 10 games and two double-digit receptions games. He was just 193 yards shy of a 1,000-yard season despite missing six games. Jeffery is the No. 1 target in this offense. He is the complete package at receiver. 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. He does carry injury concerns, especially when you consider last season. But his injury concerns could make him a better bargain for fantasy teams. We look for Jeffery to have around 95 receptions for 1,350 yards and 11 or so touchdowns.
 #28  Jamaal Charles (RB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 4  Yds: 364  Rush: 71Kansas CityBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Charles suffered a torn ACL in Week 5, ending his season short. He was performing well once again in his five games played, getting 541 total yards and five touchdowns. He had 21 receptions and averaged 5.1 yards per carry. The problem for Charles is Charcandrick West ran well in his place and seems the future at the position for the Chiefs. Charles could be in more of a platoon role for the Chiefs this season, especially since he is returning from a major knee injury. Charles has top speed, great moves and even runs with some power despite weighing less than 200 pounds. He is the complete package at running back. Charles also catches the ball well, having 27 or more receptions in each of his full seasons. Charles is 29 years old and returning from a major injury, which clouds his future a little going forward. Fantasy Outlook: Charles has some things working against him this year but still worth the risk of taking as a low-end No. 1 or top No. 2 fantasy back. He might not be as elite as recent seasons but can post big numbers in this offense - even in more of a platoon role. He'll get his receptions and yards. Charles can get around 1,400 total yards and double-digit scores with around 60 receptions.
 #29  Ryan Mathews (RB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 6  Yds: 539  Rush: 106PhiladelphiaBye: 4 
 
Player News:
Mathews had double-digit carries just four times for the Eagles last season but made the most of his work, averaging five yards per carry. He scored seven touchdowns and finished with 685 total yards. He seemed a better fit for the Eagles offense than starter DeMarco Murray. And with Murray gone, Mathews should get first shot to start this year for the Eagles. Mathews runs with power, but also has good speed and explosiveness, a rare combination at running back. Mathews doesn't have great moves in the open field but still has some big-play ability. Mathews does well as a blocker and is a capable receiver. Fantasy Outlook: Mathews looks a lot better in a starting role this year. You always have to worry about him getting hurt but he as long as he is playing, he has big total yardage potential. He is a dual threat with past success. Take him as a low-end No. 2 but don't be surprised if he surpasses that draft sot. Mathews can get around 1,300 total yards and eight or nine touchdowns.
 #30  Sammy Watkins (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 9  Yds: 1047  Recpts: 60BuffaloBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Watkins missed three games last season but still enjoyed his first 1,000-yard season as a pro. He had five 100-yard games and nine touchdowns. He was a huge big-play threat, averaging 17.5 yards per game. Watkins had at least three receptions all but two games. He is the clear No. 1 receiver for the Bills and should continue to get plenty of weekly targets. He is in his third NFL season and ready to start playing his best football. 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: Watkins is ready to be an elite fantasy receiver. Improved quarterback play was a huge plus for him last year. He can set even more career highs this year and become a low-end No. 1 for fantasy teams. Expect around 80 receptions for 1,300 yards and 11 or so touchdowns.
 #31  Amari Cooper (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 6  Yds: 1070  Recpts: 72OaklandBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Cooper had a great first season, hitting the 1,000-yard mark. He also battled a foot injury late in the year, leading to down production for him lat in the year. He had 20 or fewer yards three of his last four games, so his numbers were very good despite that late-season swoon. Cooper had five 100-yard games. Cooper is going to be the No. 1 receiver in this emerging offense for years to come. Cooper 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. Fantasy Outlook: Cooper can take his game to another level this year. Remember, he was playing with his injury late in the year. If he his healthy, he can be a low-end No. 1 this season. Look for around 90 receptions for 1,300 years and around double-digit scores.
 #32  Julio Jones (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 8  Yds: 1871  Recpts: 136AtlantaBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Jones had a huge season, finishing second overall in fantasy receiver scoring. He set career highs in receptions (136) and yards (1,871). The only knock for Jones was a lack of scores, getting just eight touchdowns despite catching all those passes. He had at least nine receptions 10 of 16 games. He also had nine 100-yard games. Jones has two straight seasons with 100-plus catches and 1,500 yards. He is in the prime of his career and the clear No. 1 for the Falcons pass-first offense. 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 five seasons he can be a home-run threat and run away from defenders. Jones has endured some injury issues throughout his career but did play a full season last year, which is encouraging. Fantasy Outlook: Jones has some injury concerns but he is a monster when on the field. He might have a hard time repeating last season's huge year, but don't be surprised if he comes close. He is a legit first-round pick for fantasy teams and capable of finishing first overall in fantasy season. Expect a season with around 130 receptions for 1,700 yards and 10 touchdowns.
 #33  Brandon Marshall (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 14  Yds: 1502  Recpts: 109New York JetsBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Marshall had one of the best seasons of his career, rebounding from a down year the previous season. He actually set a career high in touchdowns with 14. Marshall topped 1,500 yards for the second time in his career and had 109 receptions. He was third overall in fantasy scoring. Marshall is the clear top target for the Jets passing game. He is 32 years old but showed last season he still has something left in the tank. Marshall has 1,000-yard seasons eight of the past nine seasons. He also has six seasons with at least 100 receptions during that stretch. 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 be a top fantasy receiver in this offense. As long as he is healthy, he can get it done for fantasy teams. Expect around 100 receptions for 1,300 yards and 10 or so scores.

 #34  Mike Evans (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 3  Yds: 1206  Recpts: 74Tampa BayBye: 6 
 
Player News:
Evans missed the first two games of last season but still had a 1,000-yard season. He had five 100-yard games and at least three receptions in every game. The big knock on Evans was a lack of scores, finding the end zone just three times. It was a big surprise after he found the end zone double-digit times his rookie year. Evans had two straight 1,000-yard seasons to start his career. He is the top target in the Bucs offense. 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 that elite speed, but it hasn't hampered his play since entering the league. Fantasy Outlook: Evans was a bit of a disappointment last season, making him a good buy-low candidate. He can find the end zone once again this year. Evans can be a low-end No. 1 for fantasy teams. He can get 80 receptions for 1,300 or so yards and 10 touchdowns.
 #35  Aaron Rodgers (QB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 31  Yds: 3821  Int: 8Green BayBye: 4 
 
Player News:
Rodgers had a down year for his standards. He failed to top 4,000-passing yards but did have 32 total touchdowns to just eight interceptions. He still did a great job of limiting turnovers and producing points. But a suspect offensive line and receivers failing to separate hurt Rodgers last year. He also held onto the ball longer than usual for him. Rodgers also is an underrated runner. He has at least 200-rushing yards and two rushing touchdowns seven of the last eight seasons. This part of his game can be overlooked, but is a real asset. Rodgers has a great arm and is extremely accurate. He makes plays with his feet and is normally very durable. The Packers should have a better group of receivers this year with Jordy Nelson back from injury. The Packers will continue to pass often but are a little more balanced these days than past year.

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

 #36  Cam Newton (QB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 35  Yds: 3837  Int: 10CarolinaBye: 7 
 
Player News:
Despite losing his top receiver before the start of the season, Newton had an MVP-season for the Panthers and fantasy teams. He finished first overall in fantasy quarterback scoring, setting several career highs. He had 35-passing touchdowns to just 10 interceptions and ran in other 10 scores, giving him 45 total touchdowns. Newton had a touchdown in every game and multiple scores all but three. He had an unbelievable season, taking a big step forward in his career. Newton has a huge arm and can make big-time plays with his legs. He shows some immaturity at times, especially when dealing with the press, but has made strides in that area. He will force some passes at times but is pretty accurate throwing the ball for the most part. He throws a good deep ball and runs as well as any quarterback in the game. He will continue to be the centerpiece of the Panthers' offense.

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

 #37  Andrew Luck (QB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 15  Yds: 1881  Int: 12IndianapolisBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Luck had a very disappointing season for fantasy owners. He struggled when playing and also missed a lot of time because of injury. It was a season to forget for Luck, completing just 55 percent of his passes. He did have 15 touchdowns in seven games but was intercepted 12 times. He played more like a rookie than a veteran quarterback. Luck has the talent to turn things around, though, especially in this offense. Luck is a cerebral quarterback that is accurate and seems to know his limitations. He will force the ball at times, though, and still doesn't have the decision making you would hope at this stage of his career. Luck doesn't have a huge arm but it is strong enough to make all the throws. The Colts continue to struggle running the ball, giving Luck plenty of chances to air it out.

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

 #38  Drew Brees (QB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 32  Yds: 4870  Int: 11New OrleansBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Brees proved he still has something left in the tank last season, finishing sixth overall in fantasy scoring. Brees had a great finish to his sason, having three-touchdown games three of his last five, scoring 12 touchdowns to just one interception during that stretch. He threw for nearly 5,000 yards and had 33 total touchdowns to 11 interceptions. Brees has eight straight seasons with 33 or more touchdowns. He also has 5,000 yards four of eight seasons. And at age 36, he still looks like he has good years left in the tank. He knows the offense inside and out and produces at a high level for the team. Brees is extremely accurate, makes great decisions, and spreads the wealth to a host of options in the offense. The Saints try to have a balanced offense, but remain pass-first with Brees at the helm. He makes the offense tick for the Saints.

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

 #39  T Y Hilton (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 5  Yds: 1124  Recpts: 69IndianapolisBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Hilton didn't have quite the season as expected. He did top 1,000 yards but scored just five touchdowns and caught only 69 passes. But much of the issue was the quarterback play of the Colts. Andrew Luck was injured, leaving a big hole at the position for the team. Hilton didn't have near the big games as the previous season, topping 100 yards just twice. The good news is he had at least three receptions all but two games. Getting Andrew Luck back this season should be a big plus for Hilton. He remains the top target for the offense for the coming year. Hilton has three straight 1,000-yard seasons and is in the prime of his career at age 26. 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 low-end No. 1 for fantasy teams. Expect him to rebound some from last season, especially with his touchdown and receptions totals. He can get around 80 receptions for 1,300 yards and nine or 10 touchdowns.
 #40  Jay Ajayi (RB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 1  Yds: 187  Rush: 49MiamiBye: 8 
 
Player News:
A hamstring injury slowed Ajayi early his rookie season but he found the field about halfway through the season and showed some good things. He didn't have double-digit rushes in a game and had 277 total yards in 10 games. He played second fiddle to starter Lamar Miller, hurting his chances for much playing time. There is a chance he is the starter from day one this year, though. Ajayi has great moves in space and is tough to bring down once he gets the ball in his hands. He catches the ball pretty well and has the makeup to be a three-down back in the league. Ajayi will try to make the big play too much, though, and needs to do a better job of hitting the hole in a hurry. Fantasy Outlook: Ajayi is an intriguing back for the coming year. He has some real potential if he plays a three-down role, which is very possible He could get around 1,200 total yards and seven or eight touchdowns in this offense. He could be a solid No. 2 for fantasy teams.
 #41  DeVante Parker (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 3  Yds: 494  Recpts: 26MiamiBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Parker had injury issues much of his rookie season, leading to plenty of time missed. But he flashed his big potential late in the year. He had his first 100-yard game of the season the last week of the year and had 80-plus yards four of his last six. He is going to be a huge part of this passing game from day one. 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 is ready to explode. He has big-game potential every week. He could be an elite fantasy receiver very soon. For now, expect him to be a No. 2 for fantasy teams. He can get around 70 receptions for 1,100 yards and eight or nine touchdowns.

 #42  DeMarco Murray (RB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 6  Yds: 702  Rush: 193TennesseeBye: 13 
 
Player News:
Murray had a disappointing first season with the Eagles. He didn't seem a good fit for the new offense and fell in coach Chip Keily's doghouse, leading Murray to fall all the way to No. 3 on the depth chart at one point during the season. Even with that all said, Murray still finished 15th overall in fantasy running back scoring. He had more than 1,000 total yards and scored seven touchdowns. He had fewer than 200 carries, though, after having nearly 400 the previous year. He was traded to the Titans during the offseason and takes over as the lead back for his new team. He has some competent for carries, though, with the Titans drafting Derrick Henry in the second round. These backs could split a lot of work his year. Murray is the complete package at running back. He is a home-run threat every time he touches the ball. Murray isn't a huge back but has decent strength. He has elite speed and great moves in the open field. Murray also is a very good receiver out of the backfield. Fantasy Outlook: Murray has some durability concerns because of all his touches the last few years and the addition of Henry really hurts his stock. He is going to eat into his workload. Murray will still get plenty of touches but could be a little more erratic. Consider him more of a No. 2 back for fantasy teams. He can get around 1,100 total yards and eight touchdowns.
 #43  LeSean McCoy (RB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 3  Yds: 895  Rush: 203BuffaloBye: 10 
 
Player News:
McCoy had a little bit of an erratic first season with the Bills. He had some big games along the way but disappeared in others. His overall numbers were solid despite missing four games because of injury. He had 1,187 total yards and five touchdowns, finishing 17th in fantasy running back scoring. McCoy had eight games with 100-plus total yards, playing his best football the second half of the season before hurting his knee and missing the last two games. McCoy should be the top back and a big focal point of the offense this season. McCoy is 28 years old but has a lot of touches in his seven-year NFL career. McCoy probably isn't hitting the wall just yet but getting a few less touches this season wouldn't be a huge surprise. McCoy is an elusive back with great hands. He just makes plays in space. McCoy also is a much better runner these days between the tackles, making some tough runs throughout the past few seasons. Fantasy Outlook: McCoy could lose more work to Karlos Williams this year, but he still has plenty of value in this offense. He'll get his work and should get around 1,100 total yards and eight touchdowns with 40 or so receptions. He can still really help fantasy teams.
 #44  Carlos Hyde (RB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 3  Yds: 470  Rush: 115San FranciscoBye: 8 
 
Player News:
A foot injury caused Hyde to play about half the season last year. He eventually needed surgery on the foot but should be fine for the coming year. He had a great first game to the season but didn't do a whole lot after that with the entire 49ers offense struggling. Hyde had more than 60-rushing yards just once after Week 1. He averaged just four yards per carry and finished with 521 total yards in seven games. Hyde should return to the starting lineup this year but might have some company competing for carries. Hyde will need to play more consistent football to keep his starting job. Hyde is a big, powerful back that can carry the load. He also catches the ball well. He really is a three-down back. He does lack some elite speed, though, and doesn't have great moves. He is more of a banger. Fantasy Outlook: Hyde isn't going to go nearly as high this season in drafts but still has some potential in this offense. The 49ers played much better offensively down the stretch compared to early in the year. If they keep that up, Hyde can be a solid No. 2 for fantasy teams. He could get 1,200 or so total yards and eight touchdowns with around 30 receptions.
 #45  Arian Foster (RB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 1  Yds: 163  Rush: 63---Bye: - 
 
Player News:
Foster suffered a major injury last year, tearing his Achilles' tendon in Week 7. He was averaged just 2.6 yards per carry before getting hurt, which is a bit of a concern. He did get plenty of work in the passing game, giving him good overall numbers. He finished with 390 total yards and three touchdowns in four games. Foster is a concern going forward. He is 30 years old and returning from a major injury. How much does he have left in the tank? Foster will be the No. 1 back in this offense as long as he is healthy, though. When healthy, Foster is a complete back. Foster has size, speed, vision and plus hands. He does a great job of setting his blocks and hitting the hole in a hurry. Foster might have the best vision of any back in the game. Fantasy Outlook: Foster is a big risk for this season but certainly capable of producing big when healthy and playing. But you can't take him as anything more than a No. 2 back because of all his concerns. Expect around 1,200 total yards and seven or eight scores. You also have to count on Foster missing a few games because of injury.
 #46  Ben Roethlisberger (QB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 21  Yds: 3938  Int: 16PittsburghBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Roethilsberger missed four games because of injury but had great overall numbers much of the year. He threw for nearly 4,000 yards and had 21 touchdowns. The one issue he struggled with were some interceptions, getting picked off 16 times. He posted big yardage numbers, though, moving this passing game up and down the field. He had eight 300-yard games. Roethlisberger has 4,000-yard seasons four of his last seven. He plays in an offense that is becoming one of the best passing games in all of football. Roethilsberger has a great arm and is an accurate passer. He might be the best quarterback in the game at prolonging a play because of his size and strength. Injuries have slowed him some in recent seasons but he was able to play a full year two of the past three seasons.

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

 #47  Chris Ivory (RB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 7  Yds: 1070  Rush: 247JacksonvilleBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Ivory had his first 1,000-yard season as a pro last year. He had his best overall year, finishing 11th overall in fantasy running back scoring. He also set a career high in receptions, catching 30 passes. This was a big boost for his fantasy production. Ivory had three 100-yard rushing games and scored eight touchdowns. He had double-digit carries all but two games. Ivory has 800-plus rushing yards three straight seasons. He has 28 years old and should have a few more seasons left but moves to more of a timeshare this season, signing with the Jaguars. He'll get most of the short-yardage work and some other carries throughout the game. Ivory is a big back that runs with power but also has decent speed and the ability to make some big plays. He isn't polished as a receiver but improving in that area, helping his chances to be more of a three-down back. Fantasy Outlook: Ivory has some value because he is going to score some touchdowns in this offense, but his numbers are going to take a hit in a timeshare. Consider him a No. 3 or 4 fantasy back in his current role. He can get around 700-rushing yards with 15 receptions and eight or so scores. He isn't going to have many huge games but should be pretty consistent.
 #48  Danny Woodhead (RB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 3  Yds: 336  Rush: 98San DiegoBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Woodhead was an elite fantasy back last year, finishing third overall in fantasy running back scoring in PPR formats. He had an amazing 81 receptions, catching more passes than many receivers last season. He had at least three receptions all but two games. He had five-plus receptions nine times. He finished with 1,091 total yards and nine touchdowns. He had more than 50-rushing yards just twice all season but made up for that with all his work in the passing game. Woodhead has 75-plus receptions two of three seasons with the Chargers. Expect him to play a similar role this season. Woodhead is a very small back, but has great speed and moves in the open field. His lack of size will prevent him from being an every-down back, but he can be a top change-of-pace option. He might be the best receiving back in the game right now. Fantasy Outlook: Woodhead has huge value in PPR formats. It is hard to count on him to score all those touchdowns again but he can get 70-plus receptions in this pass-first offense. Woodhead is overlooked a little but the numbers don't lie. He'll produce on a consistent basis, getting around 1,000 total yards and seven or eight touchdowns.
 #49  T.J. Yeldon (RB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 2  Yds: 740  Rush: 182JacksonvilleBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Yeldon had a very productive rookie campaign, finishing with 1,019 total yards and three touchdowns in 12 games. He had his season cut short because of a sprained knee but proved his worth in the starting lineup before the injury. He had two 100-yard gams and caught an impressive 36 passes. He did struggle some running the all at time, averaging just 4.1 yards per carry, but the offensive line wasn't doing a great job of opening holes for him in this pass-first offense. Yeldon is the future at the position for the Jaguars and should continue to start for years to come, but he moves to more a timeshare this season with Chris Ivory on board. Yeldon is a big back that runs with power and can be an asset as a blocker. He lacks a big-time second gear, but still made some big plays last year because of his quickness and moves in space. He'll also help in the passing game. He needs to improve on hitting the hole in a hurry and being more decisive with his runs but that should come with time. Fantasy Outlook: Yeldon would be an intriguing fantasy back in his second NFL season if not for Ivory taking some work and the goal-line chances. He still has some real total yardage potential in an emerging offense, but consider him more of a low-end No. 2 or 3 fantasy back. He can get around 1,200 total yards and five or six touchdowns with 40 or so receptions.
 #50  Justin Forsett (RB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 2  Yds: 641  Rush: 151BaltimoreBye: 8 
 
Player News:
A broken arm ended Forsett's season early, missing the last six games. He was producing before the injury, having 794 total yards and two touchdowns in 10 games. If he plays a full season, Forsett finishes with 1,270 total yards and three scores. He had two 100-yard rushing games and at least four receptions six of 10 games. He lost out on goal-line chances, though, which hurt his fantasy value. He should get another shot to start this season but nothing is guaranteed. Remember, he is 30 years old and has been a lead back just a few times during his career. Forsett is a big-play back. He doesn't have great size but proved he could carry the load as a lead back the last few seasons. Forsett possesses very good speed and moves in space. He is a playmaker, averaging 4.9 yards per carry for his career. Fantasy Outlook: Forsett is a bit of a wild card this year. He has some question marks. The good thing is he doesn't have a ton of carries under his belt, so he could remain pretty fresh at this stage of his career. Consider him a solid No. 2 back. He can get around 1,200 total yards and six or seven scores with 40 receptions.
 #51  Russell Wilson (QB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 34  Yds: 4024  Int: 8SeattleBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Wilson had another big season for the Seahawks, leading the team to the Super Bowl once again. He threw for more than 3,000 yards and had a career-high 849-rushing yards. Wilson ran for more yards than some starting running backs. And Wilson has designed running plays but does a great job of picking and choosing when to run the ball. He also doesn't take many big hits despite all his runs. Wilson had 26 total touchdowns to just seven interceptions all season. He still lacks some top weapons to throw to in the passing game but makes the most of the talent around him. Wilson makes everyone better around him. Wilson isn't a big quarterback but moves around the pocket well and can make all the throws at quarterback. He kind of reminds you of Drew Brees. His arm isn't off the charts but accurate and he does well to find a throwing lane despite his small size. Wilson is a much better runner than Brees, though. He can hurt teams with his legs as much as his arm. Wilson has topped 500-rushing yards each of the past two seasons.

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

 #52  Jeremy Maclin (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 8  Yds: 1088  Recpts: 87Kansas CityBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Maclin had a good first season with the Chiefs. He was the clear top target in this offense and had a 1,000-yard season with eight scores. He had three 100-yard games and at least three receptions every game. He also had a great finish to the season, finding the end zone five of his last six games. He has two straight 1,000-yard seasons. Maclin 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 has missed a game the last two seasons. Fantasy Outlook: Maclin proved he can be a productive fantasy receiver in this offense. He should be considered a solid No. 2 for fantasy teams. He can improve his numbers a little from last year but don't expect a big jump. Maclin can finish with around 90 receptions for 1,100 yards and nine or so touchdowns.
 #53  Randall Cobb (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 6  Yds: 829  Recpts: 79Green BayBye: 4 
 
Player News:
Cobb had a highly disappointing season last year. He struggled, serving as the No. 1 receiver for the Packers with Jordy Nelson injured. Cobb finished with fewer than 850-receiving yards and had just one 100-yard game. He did have multiple receptions every game and scored seven touchdowns. He should move back to his normal role with the Packers this season with Nelson back. Cobb does his best work out of the slot. 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 was a huge bust last year. He should be able to improve on last season but don't expect huge numbers. He has always been a little erratic from week to week. Consider him a No. 2 for fantasy teams. He can get around 90 receptions for 1,000 yards and nine touchdowns.
 #54  Matt Jones (RB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 3  Yds: 490  Rush: 144WashingtonBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Jones flashed plenty of potential his rookie season but fumbles marred much of his season. He finished with 794 total yards and four touchdowns. He made some big plays along the way, especially early in the year when he had his only 100-yard game in Week 2. Jones will get his chance to start from day one this year but will need to win the job. He needs to get his ball security issues under control and take what the defense give him instead of trying to make the big play often. Jones has the potential to be a top back in this league, though. Jones does a good job of hitting the hole in a hurry and is a home run threat with the ball in his hands. Jones catches the ball pretty well and can be a three-down back if all goes well for him. Fantasy Outlook: Jones has a chance for a big season if all goes well for him but has some question marks heading into the season. Because of that, consider him more of a low-end No. 2 or flex play for fantasy teams. He can get around 1,000 total yards and six touchdowns with 30 or so receptions.
 #55  Allen Hurns (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 10  Yds: 1031  Recpts: 64JacksonvilleBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Hurns built on his solid rookie season and enjoyed a breakout year, finishing 19th overall in fantasy receiver scoring. He had his first 1,000-yard season and scored 10 touchdowns. Hurns had five 100-yard games and averaged 16.1 yards per reception. He was a top big-play threat for the Jaguars pass-first offense. He'll continue to be a big part of this offense for years to come. Hurns 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.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Hurns is the real deal for fantasy teams. He probably won't do much better than last year but is a legit No. 2 for fantasy teams in this improving offense. Expect another 1,000-yard season with around double-digit scores. He is a fantasy player on the rise.

 #56  Dorial Green-Beckham (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 4  Yds: 549  Recpts: 32TennesseeBye: 13 
 
Player News:
Green-Beckham didn't play a lot early in the year but got a lot more work as the season progressed. He had 100-yard games two of his last five. He finished with four touchdowns on 32 receptions, proving to be a top red-zone target for the team. Green-Beckham will be giving a shot to be the No. 1 receiver for the Titans this year. 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 has some off the field concerns but was a pretty model citizen last year, which is a plus going forward.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Green-Beckham is setup for a breakout season. He has a chance to really take his game to a new level. He could be a little inconsistent but expect good production in an emerging offense. He is worth grabbing as a No. 2 or 3. Look for a season with around 70 receptions for 1,000 yards and nine or 10 touchdowns.

 #57  Keenan Allen (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 4  Yds: 725  Recpts: 67San DiegoBye: 11 
 
Player News:
A lacerated kidney ended Allen's season in Week 8, which was a same because he was having a career year. Allen already had 67 receptions for 725 yards and four touchdowns in eight games. If he plays a full season, Allen finishes with 134 receptions for 1,450 yards and eight touchdowns. Allen had three double-digit reception games and three 100-yard games. Allen is the clear top target in this pass-first offense. His injury shouldn't be an issue going forward, which is good news for him and the Chargers. Allen runs good routes and does a good job of just getting open. He is capable of turning a short play into a big one because of his quickness and moves in space. His hands were a concern entering his rookie season, but Allen really alleviated those concerns the last three seasons. Fantasy Outlook: Don't overlook Allen because of last season's injury-shortened season. He was having a huge year before getting hurt. He should be considered a low-end No. 1 for fantasy teams, especially in PPR formats. Expect around 110 receptions for 1,200 yards and seven or eight touchdowns.
 #58  Emmanuel Sanders (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 6  Yds: 1135  Recpts: 76DenverBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Sanders saw his number dip a little last season as the Broncos passing game had some struggles, but he finished with good overall numbers. He had another 1,000-yard season and caught 76 passes. He had four 100-yard games and at least five receptions eight games. 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 can see his numbers improve with a new starting quarterback at the helm this season. He can be more consistent than last year. Don't count on him to be a No. 1 but he can be a solid No. 2 for fantasy teams. He will produce, getting around 90 receptions for 1,200 yards and eight touchdowns.
 #59  Julian Edelman (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 7  Yds: 692  Recpts: 61New EnglandBye: 9 
 
Player News:
A broken foot derailed what looked like a career-best season for Edelman. He had 61 receptions for 692 yards and seven touchdowns in just nine games. He had two double-digit reception games and touchdowns five of nine games. Edelman returned for the playoffs and had 17 receptions for 153 yards in two games. He is the top receiver in this pass-first offense. 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 third 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 110 receptions for 1,100 yards and seven or eight touchdowns.

 #60  Jonathan Stewart (RB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 6  Yds: 989  Rush: 242CarolinaBye: 7 
 
Player News:
Stewart had a very good season despite missing the last three games of the regular season with an ankle injury. He finished 11 yards shy of 1,000-rushing yards and scored seven touchdowns. He had double-digit carries every game for the Panthers. Stewart did average just 4.1 yards per carry, which wasn't a great number for all the work he got. Stewart hasn't played a full season since 2011 and has just one 1,000-yard season. Stewart is 29 years old and might be running out of time to continue to be a full-time starter. Stewart is a big back, but has plus speed and the ability to break a big play at any time. And he does well in the passing game, having 25 or more catches two of the past five seasons. Stewart does lack consistency at times but he has split work at running back much of his career. And he also is injury plagued, failing to play a full season four straight years. Fantasy Outlook: Stewart is an injury risk that struggled to make many big plays last season but if he is getting the work, he can help fantasy teams as a No. 2 back. Just expect him to miss a few games and not post game-changing numbers. He can get around 1,000 total yards and six touchdowns.
 #61  Brandin Cooks (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 9  Yds: 1138  Recpts: 84New OrleansBye: 5 
 
Player News:
A strong finish to his season propelled cooks to career-best numbers. He was 14th overall in fantasy receiver scoring. He had his first 1,000-yard season and finished with 84 receptions and nine touchdowns. He was the top target in the Saints passing attack much of the year. Cooks had four 100-yard games and at least three receptions in every 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 is a good fit for the Saints pass-first offense. Fantasy Outlook: Some thought he would finish with better numbers last year but Cooks certainly wasn't a bust. He can improve on some of his numbers from last year and be a low-end No. 1 or top No. 2 for fantasy teams. He can get 90 or so receptions for 1,100 yards and eight or nine touchdowns.
 #62  Jarvis Landry (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 4  Yds: 1157  Recpts: 110MiamiBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Landry took his game to a new level last year, becoming one of the top receivers in all of football. He hit the 100-catch, 1,000-yard mark for the first time in his career. He had double-digit catches three times and two 100-yard games. The only knock on Landry was a lack of scores, finding the end zone just five times. But despite the lack of scores, Landry still finished eighth overall in fantasy receiver scoring. 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 is the real deal. He is going to get a ton of targets in this offense and should see his touchdown totals rise some, meaning a better fantasy than last season. Consider him a low-end No. 1 for fantasy teams. He can get around 100 receptions for 1,100 yards and seven or eight touchdowns.
 #63  Karlos Williams (RB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 7  Yds: 517  Rush: 93BuffaloBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Williams had some injury issues his rookie season but showed a lot when playing. He got some starts and made plenty of big plays with his touches. He opened the season with touchdowns in his first six games. He finished the year with nine touchdowns while averaging 5.6 yards per carry. Williams is the future at the position for the Bills and should split work at running back for the Bills. He will get his weekly touches. Williams is a big-play back. He has really good size for the position but has great moves in space and a lot of speed. He does try to make the big play a little too often but should get better in that area with more seasoning. He isn't a bad receiver out of the backfield and has a knack for finding the end zone. Fantasy Outlook: Williams was impressive last year and has a bright future for fantasy teams. LeSean McCoy is still around, though, hurting his value for this year. He is going to be more of a flex play for fantasy teams. He can get around 800 total yards and six touchdowns.
 #64  Larry Fitzgerald (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 9  Yds: 1215  Recpts: 109ArizonaBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Fitzgerald just keeps chugging along, having his best season in several years last year. He had more than 100 receptions and hit the 1,000-yard mark once again with nine touchdowns. He had three 100-yard games and two games with double-digit receptions. Fitzgerald was very consistent, having at least three receptions in every game. He was seventh overall in fantasy receiver scoring. Fitzgerald turns 33 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: He had an unbelievable season last year, but we aren't so sure he can reach those great numbers again. He has to slow down at some point, especially with all his work over the years. Even with that said, consider him a top No. 2 for fantasy teams. He can get around 90 receptions for 1,100 yards and eight or so touchdowns.
 #65  Eric Decker (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 12  Yds: 1027  Recpts: 80New York JetsBye: 11

Decker had a much better second season with the Jets, finishing 14th overall in fantasy receiver scoring. He was a big-time red-zone targets, scoring 12 touchdowns. He also had a 1,000-yard season. Decker had just one 100-yard game but at least three receptions all but two games. He scored touchdowns four straight games to end his season. 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 is going to be hard pressed to match last year but he can still be a solid No. 2 for fantasy teams. Just expect his TD totals to drop a little. Decker can get around 85 receptions for 1,100 yards and eight or nine touchdowns.
 #66  Doug Baldwin (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 14  Yds: 1069  Recpts: 78SeattleBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Baldwin had a career year, finishing 11th overall in fantasy receiver scoring. He had his first 1,000-yard season as a pro and scored 14 touchdowns, which also was a career high. He set career highs across the board. Baldwin had multiple touchdowns four of his last six games. He also had three 100-yard games and multiple catches every game. He is the clear No. 1 receiver for the Seahawks and should continue to get plenty of targets in this offense. Baldwin has 50 or more receptions three straight seasons. Baldwin 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 four of five seasons with the Seahawks.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Baldwin will have a hard time repeating last season but he should be considered a solid No. 2 for fantasy teams. Just don't expect all the scores again hit year. His previous career high in scores was just five, so expect those numbers to drop some. Even with that said, he can get around 80 receptions for 1,000 yards and eight or so scores.

 #67  Blake Bortles (QB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 35  Yds: 4428  Int: 18JacksonvilleBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Borltes took a big leap his second season in the league. He finished fourth overall in fantasy quarterback scoring. He was a top-five fantasy quarterback just his second season in the NFL. Bortles had nearly 4,500-passing yards and 37 total touchdowns to 18 interceptions. He had touchdowns in all but the last game of the year. He had six 300-yard games and five three-touchdown games. He was a consistent force in a pass-first offense. The Jaguars still don't have much of a running game but two of the best young receivers in the game. Bortles should continue to air it out often. Bortles has great size, a plus arm and is a good athlete. He has a very strong arm. His delivery remains a bit long but has improved some since entering the league. He is reading defenses much better but needs to improve his decision making more. Bortles still turns the ball over too much.

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

 #68  Eli Manning (QB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 35  Yds: 4432  Int: 14New York GiantsBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Manning had another good fantasy season, finishing eighth overall in quarterback season. He'll make some bad decisions and throws but his overall numbers are normally good at the end of the day. Manning set a career high in passing touchdowns last season, throwing 35. This gives him two straight season with 30 or more scores. He had six 300-yard games and topped 4,000 yards for the second straight season. Manning plays in a quarterback-friendly system that suits his game well. Manning has been helped by Odell Beckham, who has taken Manning's numbers to a new level. Expect more of the same this year. Manning has 26 or more touchdowns six of the past seven years and 4,000 yards five of six seasons. At age 35, he still has plenty left in the tank. Manning has a good arm and is an accurate quarterback. He still makes some bad decisions but has improved in that are a little. Manning also is durable, playing every game the last 11 seasons.

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

 #69  Jordan Matthews (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 8  Yds: 997  Recpts: 85PhiladelphiaBye: 4 
 
Player News:
Matthews had a productive second season but not quite the breakout season as expected. He finished three yards shy of a 1,000-yard season. He had have 85 receptions and eight touchdowns, though. He was the top target in the offense, getting four 100-yard games. He should continue to be the No. 1 for the Eagles and a new offense could be a good thing for Matthews, using his abilities a little better. 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 can improve on last season but don't expect him to be an elite fantasy receiver. Consider him more of a No. 2, finishing with around 90 receptions for 1,000 yards and eight touchdowns. He has a chance to post career highs across the board.
 #70  Tavon Austin (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 5  Yds: 473  Recpts: 52Los AngelesBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Austin was the top playmaker for the Rams last season. He had almost as many receiving yards (473) as rushing yards (434). Austin finished the year with 907 total yards and nine touchdowns. He got consistent touches on a weekly basis and made plenty of big plays along the way. Expect more of the same this season, getting chances for receptions and rushes. Austin 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. Austin has big-play potential every time he touches the ball.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Austin is never going to be an elite fantasy receiver but will help as a No. 3. He gets plenty of touches and won't lay a goose egg because of his work in the rushing game. Expect around 1,000 total yards and eight or so scores.

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

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

 #72  DeSean Jackson (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 4  Yds: 528  Recpts: 30WashingtonBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Jackson had an injury-plagued year, playing 10 games. He scored four touchdowns in his limited playing time and finished with just over 500 yards and 30 receptions. He had one 100-yard game and three games total with 80-plus yards. Jackson produced when playing, averaging 17.6 yards per reception. Jackson has 1,000-yard seasons two of his last three. 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. He should continue to serve as the No. 1 receiver for the Redskins. Fantasy Outlook: Jackson isn't in that elite category of fantasy receivers but can help as a No. 2 or No. 3. 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 60 receptions for 1,100 yards and seven or so touchdowns.
 #73  Andy Dalton (QB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 25  Yds: 3250  Int: 7CincinnatiBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Dalton missed the last three games of the season because of a broken thumb but was having a really good season before getting injured. He finished with 28 total touchdowns to just seven interceptions and had four 300-yard games. He looked to take a step forward last season after some inconsistent play in recent years. Dalton doesn't have a huge arm, but he is accurate and does well with hitting his receivers in stride. He is a good fit for the Bengals' offense. Dalton has a good grasp of what the Bengals are trying to do offensively and has a great rapport with receiver A.J. Green. Dalton still needs to show up in the big game to be considered an elite quarterback but the rest of his game looks pretty good.

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

 #74  Travis Benjamin (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 5  Yds: 966  Recpts: 68San DiegoBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Benjamin had a breakout season as the No. 1 receiver for the Browns. He finished just 34 yards shy of 1,000 and caught 68 passes. He had three 100-yard games and at least three receptions all but two games. He was a consistent force and made plenty of big plays, averaging 14.2 yards per reception. He heads to San Diego this year to serve as the No. 2 for the Chargers. He could get even more targets this year in a team that throws more often than the Browns. 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 more than just a vertical threat now, improving his route running and becoming a more complete receiver. Benjamin isn't a physical player, though, and will shy away from contact a little.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Benjamin took a big step forward last year and could improve on those numbers with his new team. He is becoming a legit fantasy starter, serving as a No. 3 for fantasy teams. He can reach that 1,000-yard mark this year, getting around 75 receptions for 1,000 yards and seven scores.

 #75  Jordan Reed (TE) Yr: 2015  TDs: 11  Yds: 952  Recpts: 87WashingtonBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Reed had a breakout season for the Redskins, finishing second overall in fantasy tight end scoring. He even missed two games because of injury but still finished just 48 yards shy of 1,000 and scored 11 touchdowns. He was the top target in this offense, catching 87 passes. Reed is going to be the starter for the Redskins for years to come and should get plenty of targets for the Redskins. Reed is a top athlete with speed and plus hands. He also runs good routes and does a good job of finding the soft spot in coverage. Reed also is a pretty willing blocker and should continue to improve in this area.

Fantasy Outlook:  
   Reed is a legit top-five fantasy tight end. He might have a hard time scoring as much as he did last season but could have a little better yardage and reception totals. He might get around 90 receptions for 1,000 yards and nine or 10 touchdowns. Reed is a tight end on the rise.

 #76  Marvin Jones (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 4  Yds: 816  Recpts: 65DetroitBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Jones had the best season of his career last year, finishing with 65 receptions for 816 yards and four touchdowns. He didn't have a 100-yard game all season but multiple receptions all but a year. He heads to Detroit this season to serve as a starter in their offense. He could be a good fit for the Lions pass-first offense. Jones 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 can set career highs with his new team. He should get more targets and has a chance for his first 1,000-yard season. Take him as a low-end No. 2 or No. 3 and hope for career bests. He could get around 80 receptions for 1,000 yards and seven or so touchdowns.

 #77  Michael Floyd (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 6  Yds: 849  Recpts: 52ArizonaBye: 9 
 
Player News:
His season started a little slow but Floyd had a great finish, hitting the 100-yard mark three of his last five games. He scored six touchdowns on the season and finished a yard shy of 850. He was a little inconsistent, competing for targets with two other great receivers. Floyd had six games with just a catch or no catches. Floyd remains the starter in this explosive passing game. He has three straight seasons with 840-plus yards. 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 might be a little erratic for fantasy teams but he'll get his big games along the way. We would expect more yards and a few more receptions this year. He can reach that 1,000-yard mark once again and score around seven touchdowns. He is worth grabbing as a low-end No. 2 or 3 fantasy receiver.

 #78  Ameer Abdullah (RB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 2  Yds: 597  Rush: 143DetroitBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Abdullah didn't live up to his preseason hype. He started some games but wasn't great in an expanded role. He had double-digit carries six times but his season high in rushing was just 77 yards. He averaged just 4.2 yards per carry and had 780 total yards and three touchdowns. He'll need to show more consistency this season if he hopes to start for the Lions. He'll get a chance to start for the Lions, though. The team likes his potential in an expanded role. Abdullah has great speed and can get to the next level in a hurry. He isn't a big back but isn't afraid to lower his shoulder to try to pick up some extra yards. He will struggle in some short-yardage situations, though. He needs to try not to make the big play every time he has the ball in his hands and take what the defenses give him. Abdullah can catch the ball out of the backfield well and should get plenty of chances in the passing game. Fantasy Outlook: Abdullah is an intriguing talent but burnt a lot of fantasy owners last season that were expecting a breakout season. It could happen this year and his price tag should be much lower. He has plenty of potential, especially in PPR formats. Take him as a low-end No. 2 and hope for the best. He can get around 1,100 total yards and five or so touchdowns with around 40 receptions.
 #79  Kevin White (WR) ChicagoBye: 9 
 
Player News:
White had a lost rookie season, breaking his leg and failing to play a game all season. He still has a bright future with the Bears, though. He should be healthy and ready to go this camp and preseason. White will compete for the starting job opposite Alshon 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 him.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Don't forget about White after last season. He has a ton of talent and could produce big in this offense. Take him as a No. 3 or 4, though. He could finish with around 70 receptions for 1,000 yards and eight touchdowns if all goes well for him.

 #80  Giovani Bernard (RB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 2  Yds: 730  Rush: 154CincinnatiBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Bernard had a solid season as the top pass-catching back on the team. He got plenty of work as a runner and receiver, finishing with 1,202 total yards. He caught 49 passes and ran the ball 154 times. He was a consistent factor for the Bengals and should serve a similar role again this season. Bernard splits the work at running back for the Bengals. He is a huge asset in the passing game, catching 92 passes the last two seasons. Bernard doesn't have great size at running back but has quick feet and does well in space. He does run pretty well between the tackles despite not being the biggest back, though. He also catches the ball very well out of the backfield. He might not have the ideal size to be an every-down back. Fantasy Outlook: Bernard isn't flashy but he produces. He was 18th overall in fantasy running back scoring last season and can finish with similar numbers this year. Consider Bernard a low-end No. 2 back for fantasy teams. If he can find the end zone a little more, his value would rise even more. That is his big knock - a lack of scores. For now, expect around 1,000 total yards and five touchdowns with around 45 receptions.
 #81  Charles Sims (RB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 0  Yds: 529  Rush: 107Tampa BayBye: 6 
 
Player News:
Sims had a great season as the top backup and third-down back for the Bucs. He did great in a reserve role, finishing with 1,090 total yards and four touchdowns. He was a huge asset in the passing game, finishing with 51 receptions. Sims fits his current role very well. He should continue to serve a similar role this season for the Bucs. Sims is a very good receiver out of the backfield. He isn't much of an inside runner but can make plays on the outside and can get downhill in a hurry. He doesn't have blazing speed but gets to his second level pretty quickly, which is an asset for any back. Fantasy Outlook: Sims doesn't have big touchdown potential but he is gong to get plenty of receptions and good total yardage numbers. Remember, he was 16th in fantasy running back scoring last season. He is a top-10 back, making him a low-end No. 2 or top flex play for fantasy teams. He can finish with around 1,000 total yards and 55 receptions with five or so touchdowns.
 #82  Melvin Gordon (RB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 0  Yds: 641  Rush: 184San DiegoBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Gordon didn't have quite the rookie season as expected. He averaged just 3.5 yards per carry and his season high in rushing yards was just 88 despite having double-digit carries 12 games. He finished with just 833 total yards and didn't score a touchdown. Gordon also fumbled four times, which was cause for concern for the Chargers. He should get a chance to start this season but isn't going to be handed the job. He has to prove his worth, putting in a good offseason of work. Gordon is a home-run threat at running back with great moves and top speed. He can get to a next gear in a hurry. He does try to do too much at times with the ball in his hands, though, and struggles with ball security. He catches the ball well as evident by his 33 receptions last season. Fantasy Outlook: Gordon was a bust last season but he is young enough to turn it around. You have to draft him as a low-end No. 2 or 3 back, though. He carries plenty of risk. For now, count on about 1,000 total yards and four or five scores.
 #83  Frank Gore (RB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 6  Yds: 967  Rush: 260IndianapolisBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Gore had a pretty good first season as the starter for the Colts. He provided some stability to the position, finishing with 1,234 total yards and seven touchdowns. He did fail to have a 100-yard game all season despite having double-digit carries all but two games. His work in the passing game helped pad his overall numbers, though. Gore did show some signs of slowing down, averaging a career-worst 3.7 yards per carry while failing to top 1,000-rushing yards for the first time in four seasons. At age 33, you have you have to wonder how much he has left in the tank, especially if you consider he has 2,702 career carries. Gore might be best suited as a back that split work going forward. In his prime, Gore was an explosive back. He has good speed and moves in the open field. He has big-play potential and does well in the passing game. Fantasy Outlook: Gore can't keep his current pace at his current age but he can still help as a flex play or No. 3 back for fantasy teams. Just don't count on another season like last year. He is going to get fewer touches. But he can still finish with around 900 or 1,000 total yards and five or six touchdowns.
 #84  Charcandrick West (RB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 4  Yds: 634  Rush: 160Kansas CityBye: 5 
 
Player News:
West was a big surprise for the Chiefs, emerging as the top backup to Jamaal Charles. He got plenty of starts because of injury and did very well in that role. He is the future starter at the position for the Chiefs. West finished with 848 total yards and five touchdowns. He had one 100-yard game and averaged four yards per carry. He could be in more of a timeshare at running back this season for the Chiefs, splitting work with Charles. West is a good fit for the Chiefs' offense. He is capable of the big play, catches the ball well, and can do well between the tackles. He is a three-down back that could be a top player in this league for years to come. Fantasy Outlook: West is a back on the rise. You can't count on him to be a top starter just yet because he won't get enough touches. But he is capable of being a solid flex play for fantasy teams. He can get around 700 or 800 total yards and five or so touchdowns with around 30 receptions.
 #85  Tyler Eifert (TE) Yr: 2015  TDs: 13  Yds: 615  Recpts: 52CincinnatiBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Eifert missed three games because of an injury but still had a career year. He was a big-time red-zone target, catching 13 touchdown passes. He had just two touchdowns coming into the season. Effect finished with 52 receptions for 615 yards. Eifert had a 100-yard game in Week 1 but topped 70 yards in just one other game the rest of the season. He is the No. 1 tight end for the Bengals and might be the second most reliable target in this offense. Eifert is a tall tight end that is very athletic. He can stretch the field with his speed and has good hands to make the tough catch. He lacks a little bulk, though, and isn't much of a blocker for the tight end spot just yet. And he is yet to play a full season in three years, struggling with injuries throughout his young career.

Fantasy Outlook:  
   Eifert was a surprise last year but don't count on a repeat. His touchdown numbers were off the charts. He could be a little more erratic because of a lack of receptions and yards. He should be considered a low-end No.1 for fantasy teams. Look for around 60 receptions for 700 yards and nine or so touchdowns.

 #86  Theo Riddick (RB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 0  Yds: 133  Rush: 43DetroitBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Riddick emerged as the top pass-catching for the Lions and had a breakout season in that role. He caught 80 passes, having multiple receptions in every single game. He carried the ball just 43 times for 133 yards but was a consistent factor in the passing game every week. Riddick could be setup for even more playing time this season with Joique Bell gone for the Lions. Riddick probably is too small to be an every-down back but he does great as a receiver out of the backfield. He has good moves in open space and top hands at the position. Fantasy Outlook: Riddick was a top-20 fantasy back last season and can finish with similar numbers. His yardage numbers and touchdowns total could even improve a little. Riddick should not be ignored come draft day. He can be a low-end No. 2 or top No. 3 fantasy back. He could get around 900 total yards, 75 receptions and five touchdowns.
 #87  Laquon Treadwell (WR) MinnesotaBye: 6 
 
Player News:
Treadwell was considered the best receiver in the draft by many experts. He was taken in the first round by the Vikings, who could make him their No. 1 receiver before long. Treadwell is a big receiver that is very physical. He can overmatch the opponent because of his size and strength. He can also stretch the field because of his plus speed. He is the complete package at receiver and could be the top receiver in this offense for years to come.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Treadwell doesn't land in a great spot for his fantasy value but is still going to have some big games for the Vikings. He is an exciting talent that could be a top red-zone target. He can get around 65 receptions for 900 yards and six or seven scores, making him a No. 3 or 4 for fantasy teams.

 #88  Ronnie Hillman (RB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 7  Yds: 863  Rush: 207DenverBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Hillman pretty much split the running back duties for the Broncos last season. He did pretty well in that role, finishing with 974 total yards and seven touchdowns. He had four 100-yard games and showed his big-play potential much of the year. Hillman isn't guaranteed a starting job this year but will compete for that role. He has filled it pretty well when given the chance. Hillman is a small back that does well in space and has the speed to make big plays. Hillman excels in the screen game and does well as a receiver out of the backfield. He still needs to improve his inside running but is making strides in that area. Fantasy Outlook: Hillman might not be able to repeat last season but is still worth a look as a No. 3 or 4 for fantasy teams. He'll still get his touches and is always capable of the big game. But for now, expect around 700 total yards and a few scores.
 #89  Tyler Lockett (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 6  Yds: 664  Recpts: 51SeattleBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Lockett had a very productive rookie season, showing his big-play ability in the passing game and return game. He finished with 51 receptions for 664 yards and six scores. He had two games with 90-plus yards and averaged 13 yards per reception. He is going to be a big part of this offense for years to come. Lockett might not be a starter but will get plenty of chances as the slot receiver and an opportunity to stretch the field on a weekly basis. Lockett 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.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Lockett is a fantasy receiver on the rise. He is going to get his weekly chances in this offense. Take him as a No. 3, though, because he isn't quite in that top category of receivers just yet. He'll get around 65 receptions for 800 yards and seven touchdowns.

 #90  Devin Funchess (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 5  Yds: 473  Recpts: 31CarolinaBye: 7 
 
Player News:
Funchess started his rookie season a little slow but got more chances as the season progressed. He finished the year with his best game, catching seven passes for 120 yards and a touchdown. He scored touchdowns three of his last five games. He finished the season with fewer than 500-receiving yards. He has a chance to play a bigger role from day one this year, starting opposite Kelvin Benjamin. Funchess has great size for the receiver position. 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.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Funchess has a chance for a much bigger season this year. He isn't going to be a fantasy force but could help on a spot start basis. Funchess can get around 55 receptions for 800 yards and six or seven touchdowns.

 #91  John Brown (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 7  Yds: 1003  Recpts: 65ArizonaBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Brown had the first 1,000-yard season of his career, finishing just three yards above that mark. He produced consistent numbers as the No. 3 receiver for the Cardinals. He had two 100-yard games and scored seven touchdowns. He made a lot of big plays, averaging 15.4 yards per reception on the season. He should continue to play a big role offensively for the Cardinals. Brown is a small receiver but has great speed and moves in space. He is a top playmaker at the receiver position. Brown has a knack for making the great catch and highlight reel play. Fantasy Outlook: Brown is a fantasy receiver on the rise. His stock would be better if the Cardinals didn't have two players ahead of him on the depth chart but he will still produce. Expect similar numbers to last season, a season he finished 25th overall in fantasy receiver scoring. He can get around 1,000 yards and six or seven touchdowns.
 #92  Carson Palmer (QB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 35  Yds: 4671  Int: 11ArizonaBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Palmer had maybe the best season of his career last year, finishing fifth overall in fantasy quarterback scoring. He had 36 total touchdowns to just 11 interceptions and had more than 4,600-passing yards. He had touchdowns in every game and nine 300-yard games. He had an MVP-type regular season. He did bomb in the playoffs, though, getting picked off six times in two games. He had a finger injury on his throwing hand late in the year, which some suspect contributed to his poor play during the playoffs. He still had a great year and will continue to start for the Cardinals pass-first offense. Palmer has 4,000-yard seasons, three of the past four years. Palmer is an accurate passer with decent arm strength. He can make all throws and has always thrown the deep ball pretty well but his arm strength has slipped some in recent seasons. He will force some throws, though, and make poor decisions. He has three seasons with 20 interceptions.

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

 #93  Derek Carr (QB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 32  Yds: 3987  Int: 13OaklandBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Carr took a big step forward last season, finishing 14th overall in fantasy quarterback scoring. He had 32 touchdowns to just 13 interceptions and finished with just fewer than 4,000-passing yards. He had touchdowns all but two games and six 300-yard games. He was very consistent as the starter in this emerging offense. Carr is a good athlete with an elite arm. He can be inaccurate at times but is improving in that area. Carr can make all the throws needed for the pro game. He can make the touch pass as well as threading the needle between defenders. He also reads defenses well for a young player.

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

 #94  Matthew Stafford (QB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 32  Yds: 4262  Int: 13DetroitBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Stafford had one of his best seasons in recent years. A change at offensive coordinator during the season seemed to jumpstart things for Stafford. He had just one interception his last seven games of the season while scoring 18 touchdowns. Stafford was 10th overall in fantasy scoring. He should continue to do well, being in the prime of his career in a good offense. Stafford has five straight 4,000-yard seasons and three of those seasons with 30-plus scores. Stafford has a huge arm, moves around the pocket well and is a big, strong kid. He will force some passes, but improved on that last season. His consistency as an elite NFL quarterback hasn't been there yet but is getting closer. The Lions are pass-first team and will continue to put the offense in Stafford's hands. He is their franchise quarterback and starter for the next several seasons.

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

 #95  Torrey Smith (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 4  Yds: 663  Recpts: 33San FranciscoBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Smith had a season to forget last year, his first with the 49ers. He started but finished with fewer than 700 yards and had just 33 receptions. He had one 100-yard game, which came in Week 2. The 49ers did have some inconsistent quarterback play, though, which didn't help. A new offense this year should be a plus for Smith, getting a chance to have Chip Kelly call plays for him now. When he is playing at high level, 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 is a great buy-low candidate after last season. He should get a lot more targets in a high-volume offense. 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.
 #96  Greg Olsen (TE) Yr: 2015  TDs: 7  Yds: 1104  Recpts: 77CarolinaBye: 7 
 
Player News:
Olsen had his second straight 1,000-yard season for the Panthers. He topped 70 receptions for the third straight year and scored seven touchdowns, which was the second highest total of his career. Olsen had three 100-yard games and at least three receptions all but three games. He was the top target in this offense and should be once again this year. Olsen is a good athlete at the tight end spot. He has top speed and very good hands, making him a surprising big-play option at tight end. He is just a so-so blocker, though, but has improved in that area as his career progresses.

Fantasy Outlook:  
   Olsen gets hurt some by his lack of touchdowns. His reception and yardage totals will be among the best at the position, though. He is a top-five tight end. Expect around 80 receptions for 1,100 yards and seven or eight touchdowns.

 #97  Jameis Winston (QB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 22  Yds: 4042  Int: 15Tampa BayBye: 6 
 
Player News:
Winston had an impressive rookie season, finishing 13th overall in fantasy quarterback scoring. He surprised many with his quick progress at the position. Winston topped 4,000-passing yards and scored 28 total touchdowns compared to 15 interceptions. Winston had a great finish to his season, topping 290 yards three straight while scoring five touchdowns. He should only improve with more seasoning, which is great news for the Bucs. Winston has picked up things very quickly as the starter for the Bucs. Winston has a great arm and can make all the throws. He is a pretty accurate quarterback for a young player but still needs improvement in that area. He is very cerebral, though, and fits the part of an elite NFL quarterback. He is a good athlete but more of a pocket passer than scrambler. He will make plays with his legs when needed, though.

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

 #98  Matt Ryan (QB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 21  Yds: 4591  Int: 16AtlantaBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Ryan threw often once again but struggled to pick up the new Falcons offense last year, turning the ball over a little more while stalling in the red zone at times. This lead to lower production for him. He did threw for more than 4,500 yards but had 21 touchdowns compared to 16 interceptions. His touchdown total was his lowest since his rookie season. It broke a streak of five straight seasons with at least 26-passing touchdowns. Ryan should be more comfortable his second year in the offense, though. He also has one of the best receivers of the game on his side, which is another plus for him. Ryan has at least 614 pass attempts four straight season, playing in this pass-first offense. He is an accurate, intelligent quarterback with a strong arm and the ability to fit the ball in tight spaces. And at age 31, Ryan is in the prime of his career. If there is a knock on him, he can flop in the big game and doesn't do well under intense pressure.

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

 #99  Markus Wheaton (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 5  Yds: 749  Recpts: 44PittsburghBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Wheaton had an uneven season, falling behind teammate Martavis Bryant on the depth chart. He had a 201-yard game in Week 12 but also had five games with just a catch. He was all over the map, finishing with 44 receptions for 749 yards and five touchdowns. He could have a bigger role this season, though, with Bryant suspended for the 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:  
Wheaton is going to have some big games but disappear in others. He'll be a hard player to trust but still has value on a spot start basis. For now, expect around 65 receptions for 900 yards and five or six touchdowns.

 #100  Kirk Cousins (QB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 29  Yds: 4166  Int: 11WashingtonBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Cousins had a breakout season as the starter for the Redskins, earning the job for seasons to come. He finished ninth in fantasy quarterback scoring. He had 34 total touchdowns to just 11 interceptions and threw for more than 4,000 yards. Cousins had touchdowns every game last season and finished the season with 12 touchdowns without an interception his last three games. Cousins was a great fit for the Redskins offense and seems ready to run with the starting job going forward. Cousins isn't a flashy quarterback but a productive pocket passer. He doesn't have a huge arm but is normally accurate and usually makes smart decisions with the football. Cousins also has a knack for the rushing touchdown, scoring five last season.

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

 #101  Coby Fleener (TE) Yr: 2015  TDs: 3  Yds: 491  Recpts: 54New OrleansBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Fleener had another ho-hum season as the starter for the Colts last year. He finished with 491 yards and three touchdowns. He did get his receptions, though, finishing with 54. Fleener lands in a great spot to have a career season, signing with the Saints this offseason. He will be the No. 1 tight end in an offense that features the tight end often. Fleener has 50-plus receptions three straight seasons and more than 600 yards two of those seasons. Fleener is a big tight end that runs good routes and has the athletic ability to make plenty of plays in the passing game. He lacks a little strength, though, and isn't a great blocker for a tight end.

Fantasy Outlook:  
   Fleener is going to be a big-time fantasy tight end in this offense. He is going to get a ton of targets. Just look at what Benjamin Watson did in a starting role for the Saints last season. Fleener should be a legit top-10 or even top-five fantasy tight end. He can get 80 receptions for around 1,000 yards and six or seven scores.

 #102  Stefon Diggs (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 4  Yds: 720  Recpts: 52MinnesotaBye: 6 
 
Player News:
Diggs had a surprising rookie season, finding his way into the starting lineup and serving as the top option in the passing game much of the year. He had two 100-yard gams and finished with 720 yards and four scores. He did have a quiet finish to his season after a quick start, having fewer than 40 yards five of his last six games. He is going to be a big part of this passing game for years to come. 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. He lacks some polish and maturity, though, which will need to improve if he hopes to become an elite receiver.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Diggs can build on last year but don't expect off the chart numbers in this run-first offense. Diggs would look a lot better on a team that threw more often. But even with that said, he can t around 65 receptions for 900 yards and five or six touchdowns. He could help as a No. 3 or 4 for fantasy teams.

 #103  Vincent Jackson (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 3  Yds: 543  Recpts: 33Tampa BayBye: 6 
 
Player News:
Jackson was hampered by a shoulder injury much of the year, which caused him to miss time and play at less than 100 percent in others. Jackson had just one 100-yard game and finished with just 33 receptions in 10 games. Last season broke a break of four straight 1,000-yard seasons. Jackson is 34 years old and has a lot of football under his best but should get a chance to start once again this year. His best days might be behind him, though. 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: Jackson might have some big games this year but expect erratic production at this stage of his career. Plus, it might not be a surprise to see him miss more time because of injury. He is worth a look as a No. 3 fantasy receiver. He might get around 55 receptions for 900 yards and five or six touchdowns.
 #104  Philip Rivers (QB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 29  Yds: 4792  Int: 13San DiegoBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Rivers set a career high in yards last season and finished 11th overall in fantasy quarterback scoring despite missing some of his top targets in the passing game much of the year. He made the most of his teammates and took advantage of his chances to pass the ball. Rivers had topped 600-pass attempts for the first time in his career. He had a whopping 661-pass attempts. Rivers had nine 300-yard games and 10 multiple touchdown games. Rivers' arm strength seems to be down some and he struggles with the deep ball a little more than earlier in his career but can still get the job done as the starter for the Chargers. Rivers is accurate and has a quick release. He knows the offense well and does well in the pass-first system. Rivers has seven 4,000-yard seasons and four with 30-plus total touchdowns.

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

 #105  Steve Smith (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 3  Yds: 670  Recpts: 46BaltimoreBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Smith was having maybe the best season of his career before suffering a torn Achilles' tendon in Week 8. Smith had three 100-yard games and 670 yards in eight weeks of action before getting hurt. He is planning a return this year and should be the top target in this Ravens offense. Smith has eight 1,000-yard seasons for his career. He is 37 years old, though, so you have to wonder how much he has left in the tank, even after his great start to ast 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 has to hit the wall soon, so don't overvalue him come draft day because of his great start to last year. He is returning from a devastating injury and is three years short of 40. Take him as a No. 3 or 4 come draft day and hope for the best. He could get around 70 receptions for 900 yards with five or six touchdowns.

 #106  Travis Kelce (TE) Yr: 2015  TDs: 5  Yds: 875  Recpts: 72Kansas CityBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Kelce had a good third season in the NFL, finishing sixth overall in fantasy tight end scoring. He set career highs in receptions (72) and yards (875). He had at least three receptions all but two games. Kelce did have just one 100-yard game, which was in Week 1, but was over 50 yards seven times. He was a consistent factor in the offense. Kelce has two straight seasons with more than 65 receptions and 850 yards. Kelce is a big target with speed, athleticism and plus hands. He also is a good blocker. He really is a complete package at tight end. Kelce is an improving route runner in the prime of his career.

Fantasy Outlook:  
   Kelce is a legit No. 1 fantasy tight end. He can be a top-five player at the position this year. The only downside to Kelce is playing in a run-first offense. Besides that, his upside is huge for the Chiefs. The only thing holding him back right now is a lack of scores (five touchdowns each of the last two years). If he can improve those numbers, watch out. Expect around 80 receptions for 950 yards and six or seven touchdowns.

 #107  Joe Flacco (QB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 14  Yds: 2791  Int: 12BaltimoreBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Flacco had his season end early because of a torn ACL. He was playing alright before the injury, carrying the offense many weeks because of a lack of a running game. Flacco had 17 total touchdowns to 12 interceptions in 10 games. He had five 300-yard games, getting a chance to throw often. Much of the same could happen this year with the Ravens as long as Marc Trestman is calling plays. Flacco has a strong arm and the ability to move around the pocket well. He lacks some accuracy at times and will make some poor decisions when rushed. Flacco is a top performer in the playoffs but can't always sustain that success in the regular season.

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

 #108  Donte Moncrief (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 6  Yds: 733  Recpts: 64IndianapolisBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Moncrief about doubled his stats from his rookie year, getting 64 receptions for 733 yards and six scores. He had two 100-yard games and started much of the year for the Colts. He had multiple receptions all but three games. He will get a chance to start or serve as the No. 3 for the Colts this season. 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 can take another stop forward this season. He'll get his chances in this pass-first offense. He still shouldn't be considered anything more than a No. 3 or 4 for fantasy teams, though. He can get 70 receptions for 900 yard and six or seven scores.

 #109  Michael Crabtree (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 9  Yds: 922  Recpts: 85OaklandBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Crabtree saw a big turnaround for his career in his first season with the Raiders. He had at least three receptions in every game and finished with 85 receptions. He had 922 yards and nine touchdowns, getting consistent work in the Raiders pass-first offense. His receptions total tired a career high and his yards were the second highest of his career. He should continue to start for the Raiders, serving as the No. 2 receiver besides Amari Cooper. 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 bit of a surprise last year, seeing his numbers take a big step froward from the past two years. Expect more of the same this year. He is more of a No. 3 or 4 receiver for fantasy teams. He'll be consistent but not off the charts. He'll get around 80 receptions for 900 yards and seven or so scores.

 #110  Brock Osweiler (QB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 10  Yds: 1967  Int: 6HoustonBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Osweiler found his way into the startling lineup last year, replacing an injured and ineffective Peyton Manning. Osweiler played well in that role for the most part, having 11 total touchdowns to six interceptions in eight games. He also had five games with 270 or more passing yards. Osweiler finally gets his chance to start from day one this year, signing with the Texans. He'll be their starter for years to come. Osweiler is a huge quarterback with a big-time arm. He can make all the throws for an NFL quarterback. He does lack a little accuracy, though, and could improve his decision making, which should come with more playing time this season.

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

 #111  Jimmy Graham (TE) Yr: 2015  TDs: 2  Yds: 605  Recpts: 48SeattleBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Graham had his first season with the Seahawks cut short because of a torn right patellar tendon. This is a nasty injury that takes some time to recover, so he is no sure thing to be ready for the start of this year. He was having a decent first season with Seattle before the injury, catching 48 passes for 605 yards and two scores in 11 games. If he plays a full season, he gets around 70 receptions for 880 yards and three scores. His numbers would have been similar to his last season with the Saints. Graham was a little more erratic with his new team, though, having five of 11 games with fewer than 40 yards. He wasn't always heavily featured in the offense and had to block more than he was accustomed. Expect more of the same this season from Graham once he gets back on the field. Graham is the complete package at tight end. He is a big target with top speed and the ability to make the tough catch. He is an improving blocker and did well with his chances in that area last season for the Seahawks. Graham is a top athlete that plays more like a No. 1 receiver than tight end.

Fantasy Outlook:  
   Graham has two concerns for the coming year. He is coming off a major injury and remains in an offense that didn't always feature him heavily last season. He could be a little erratic for fantasy teams but should still be considered a No. 1 fantasy tight. Just don't expect the huge numbers from his days with the Saints. He can get around 70 receptions for 850 yards and six or so touchdowns.

 #112  Gary Barnidge (TE) Yr: 2015  TDs: 9  Yds: 1043  Recpts: 79ClevelandBye: 13 
 
Player News:
Barnidge was a huge surprise last season, emerging as the most consistent target for the Browns passing game. He had his first 1,000-yard season as a pro and finished with 79 receptions and nine touchdowns. He was fourth overall in fantasy tight end scoring. Barnidge had at least three receptions all but two games. Barnidge had done next to nothing in the passing game before last season but will be the top tight end in this offense the next several years. Barnidge has real good size for the position and is a solid pass-catcher. He isn't a great blocker but makes up for that with his great work in the passing game.

Fantasy Outlook:  
   It would be a mild surprise to see him repeat last year but consider him a top-10 fantasy tight end for the coming year. He is going to get his targets in what should be a better offense. Expect a bit of a drop off in production, getting around 70 receptions for 900 yards and seven or so scores.

 #113  Golden Tate (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 6  Yds: 813  Recpts: 90DetroitBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Tate failed to have a 100-yard game last year and didn't reach the 1,000-yard mark, but caught 90 passes. He had 90 or more receptions two straight seasons with the Lions. Tate had multiple receptions in every game last year. He also scored six touchdowns. Tate was more of a possession receiver, though, averaging just nine yards per receptions. Tate has a chance to play a bigger role in the offense this season with Calvin Johnson retiring. Tate will continue to get his targets. 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 can improve on last season, especially his yardage totals. But he isn't going to score a ton of touchdowns or have many huge games. He'll be a consistent fantasy receiver but not off the charts productive on a weekly basis. Consider him a No. 2 in PPR formats. He can get around 95 receptions for 1,000 yards and five or so touchdowns.
 #114  Willie Snead (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 3  Yds: 984  Recpts: 69New OrleansBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Snead found his way into the starting lineup for the Saints and had a breakout season. He finished just 16 yards shy of a 1,000-yard season. His fantasy numbers would have been much better if not for a lack of scores. He found the end zone just three times despite catching 69 passes. Snead isn't guaranteed to start again this year but should at least be the No. 3 after his breakout year last season. Snead is a smallish receiver but runs good routes and has plus hands. He has pretty good speed and will make plays after the catch.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Snead could improve a little on last season but don't expect him to be a sudden superstar fantasy option. He can help on a spot start basis but that is about it. He could get 70 receptions for around 1,000 yards with five or six scores.

 #115  Eric Ebron (TE) Yr: 2015  TDs: 5  Yds: 537  Recpts: 47DetroitBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Ebron had a better second season but still wasn't off the charts for the Lions. He was a little inconsistent but once again showed flashes of big things. HIs season high in yards was 89 but he scored five touchdowns in 14 games. He could have a bigger role from day one this year, though, with Calvin Johnson retired. Ebron could see a big bump in targets. Ebron is a great athlete with top speed and hands. Ebron isn't much of a blocker, though, which keeps him off the field more than your usual starting tight end.

Fantasy Outlook:  
   Ebron has a chance for that breakout year this season. Things are lined up for him to do well. Take him as a top No. 2 tight end, though, and hope for the best. He can get around 65 receptions for 800 yards and seven or so scores.

 #116  Terrance Williams (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 3  Yds: 840  Recpts: 52DallasBye: 7 
 
Player News:
Williams didn't have quite the breakout season as expected. His only 100-yard game came the last week of the season. Williams had multiple receptions all but one game. But he topped 50 yards seven of 16 games. He got weekly catches but wasn't always super productive. He isn't guaranteed anything going forward but will get a chance to compete for a starting job. 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 950 yards and five touchdowns.
 #117  Derrick Henry (RB) TennesseeBye: 13 
 
Player News:
Henry was drafted by the Titans in the second round of this year's draft. He doesn't land in a great spot to start from day one with DeMarco Murray around, but should get his chances on a weekly basis. This could be a platoon situation for this season. Henry is a huge back that looks more like a defensive player than a running back. He is a great one-cut runner that can get downhill in a hurry. Henry can be a punishing runner. He lacks some moves in space, though, and needs a little work catching the ball.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Henry has some value but not great value, splitting work with Murray at running back. He could be hit or miss for fantasy teams. Expect around 1,000 total yards with six or so scores. He'll have a lot more value once Murray is gone.

 #118  Victor Cruz (WR) New York GiantsBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Cruz didn't play at all last season as he continues to recover from a torn patellar tendon. The Giants aren't giving up on him just yet, though. He will get a chance to earn a role with the team this year as long as he is healthy. Cruz might not be 100 percent or his usual self going forward. The good news is Cruz is 29 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 because of the last two seasons. You just don't know how he'll return from this one. Plus, he is going to be the No. 2 target in this offense with the emergence of Odell Beckham. Expect his numbers to dip either way. He is still worth a look as a No. 3 or 4 receiver, though. He has potential, especially if you consider his track record. Look for a season with around 70 receptions for 900 yards and five or six touchdowns.

 #119  Phillip Dorsett (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 1  Yds: 225  Recpts: 18IndianapolisBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Dorsett had just 18 receptions his rookie season. He didn't get consistent playing time for the Colts, playing behind Andre Johnson much of the year. Johnson is gone, though, and Dorsett will be given every shot to start opposite T.Y. Hilton this year. Dorsett is the future at the position for the Colts. Dorsett is a top deep threat because of his elite speed. Dorsett needs to sharpen his route running but is making improvements in that area.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Dorsett seems setup for a much better second season. He has the talent to really produce in this offense. Consider him more of a No. 3 or 4, though, because he isn't a sure thing just yet. Expect around 60 receptions for 800 yards and five scores.

 #120  Rishard Matthews (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 4  Yds: 662  Recpts: 43TennesseeBye: 13 
 
Player News:
Matthews had his best season to date before missing the last five games of the year because of injury. He had 43 receptions for 662 yards and four scores. If he plays a full season, he finishes with 63 receptions for 963 yards and six touchdowns. Matthews had two 100-yard games and seven games with four or more receptions. He signed with the Titans during the offseason and could serve as a starter for his new team. 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 has some fantasy potential, especially if he is starting. But don't overvalue him with his new team. He still isn't a top fantasy receiver. He could get around 60 catches for 850 yards and five or six scores. He is more of a reserve for fantasy teams.

 #121  Shane Vereen (RB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 0  Yds: 260  Rush: 61New York GiantsBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Vereen had a career-high 59 receptions in his first season with the Giants. He has at least 47 receptions three straight seasons. He ran for just 260 yards last year and his career high in rushing yards is 391. Vereen remains more of a third-down back than anything. He serves that role very well, though. Vereen isn't a huge back, which hurts his chances to be an every-down back, but he has the speed and hands to excel as a third-down back as evident by the last three seasons. Fantasy Outlook: Vereen was 27th overall in fantasy running back s boring despite failing to rush for 300 yards. He gets it done in the passing game and should once again this season. He is a top flex play for fantasy teams in this pass-first offense. He can get around 50 receptions for 700 total yards and five touchdowns.
 #122  Mohamed Sanu (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 0  Yds: 394  Recpts: 33AtlantaBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Sanu got sporadic work as the No. 3 receiver for the Bengals last season. He did most of his damage early in the year, getting 60-plus yards two of his first five games. He didn't top 25 yards the rest of the way, though. Sanu had just fewer than 400-receiving yards for the season and didn't catch a touchdown pass. He did run in two scores, rushing 10 times for 71 yards and two touchdowns. He heads to the Falcons this season and will be given first shot to start opposite Julio Jones. 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. He also struggles with consistency and drops.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Sanu heads to a good spot to succeed but nothing is a given with him based on his track record. He is a boom or bust player for the coming year. If the light comes on for him, he could really produce in this offense. For now, expect around 65 receptions for 800 yards and five or six scores.

 #123  LeGarrette Blount (RB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 6  Yds: 703  Rush: 165New EnglandBye: 9 
 
Player News:
A hip injury cut his season short by three games but Blount performed well as the lead back for the Patriots much of the year. HE finished with 703-rushing yards and seven touchdowns in 12 games. He had one 100-yard game and averaged 4.3 yards per carry. He had just six receptions, though, getting very little work once again in the passing game. Blount has done alright in a starting role in past seasons but seems best suited as a back to share work or to serve as a top backup. Blount is a big back but has surprising speed and moves for a big man. His game is power, though. Blount will run over, through and around would-be tacklers. He isn't much of a factor in the passing game, having just 39 receptions in six seasons. And he struggles to make plays to the outside, which hurts his chances to be a three-down back. Fantasy Outlook: Blount has the potential for some big games and some scores but is a hard guy to trust. His production will be erratic. He might get around 700 total yards and six scores if all goes well for him, making him a No. 3 or 4 back for fantasy teams.
 #124  Austin Seferian-Jenkins (TE) Yr: 2015  TDs: 4  Yds: 338  Recpts: 21Tampa BayBye: 6 
 
Player News:
Seferian-Jenkins wasn't a huge factor his rookie season, topping 50 yards just once. He also missed the last five games of the year with a back injury. He did show some flashes, though, scoring two touchdowns on limited chances while averaging more than 10 yards per reception. He should be a bigger factor in this offense from day one this year, serving as the No. 1 tight end for the Bucs. Seferian-Jenkins is a huge tight end that can be a top red-zone target for the Bucs. He lacks a little speed but has good hands and runs pretty good routes for a young player. He isn't much of a blocker, though, and will need to get better in that area to be on the field as much as possible.

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

 #125  Duke Johnson (RB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 0  Yds: 379  Rush: 104ClevelandBye: 13 
 
Player News:
Johnson emerged as the top pass-catching back for the Browns, getting him plenty of chances in the passing game. He had double-digit carries just two times but caught 61 passes. His huge reception totals helped him finished 24th overall in fantasy running back scoring his rookie season. He had 913 total yards and two touchdowns on the season. Johnson is going to at least fill the pass-catching role again this season and could even challenge to start. He needs to show better patience as a runner, though. Johnson is more of a speed back. He has top speed for the position and can get downfield in a hurry. He lacks a little size for the position, though, and won't make many plays after contact. Fantasy Outlook: Johnson has value because of all his reception potential. He is going to finish with good total yardage and reception numbers, making him a low-end No. 2 in PPR formats. Expect around 1,000 total yards and 55 receptions with a few scores.
 #126  Julius Thomas (TE) Yr: 2015  TDs: 5  Yds: 455  Recpts: 46JacksonvilleBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Thomas missed the first four games last season but produced pretty well in his first season with the Jaguars once he got on the field. He caught 46 passes for 455 yards and five scores. He had multiple receptions all but a game and four games with 50-plus yards. Thomas had two straight seasons with double-digit touchdowns before last year. He is a top red-zone target because of his size and athleticism. Thomas is a good athlete that can get down the field in a hurry. Thomas has strong hands but will drop some passes. He still isn't much of a blocker but is a much better route runner. He is a big-play threat at tight end.

Fantasy Outlook:  
  Thomas isn't the same fantasy tight end in Jacksonville but can be worth some spot starts. He'll have some big games along the way but expect sporadic production. He can get around 60 receptions for 650 yards and seven or so scores.

 #127  Delanie Walker (TE) Yr: 2015  TDs: 6  Yds: 1088  Recpts: 94TennesseeBye: 13 
 
Player News:
Walker had the first 1,000-yard season of his career last season, becoming the most reliable target for new quarterback Marcus Mariota. Walker had 94 receptions, catching at least six passes in 11 games. He got a ton of targets on a weekly basis. The only knock on his season was a lack of scores, finding the end zone six times. Walker has at least 60 receptions three straight seasons with the Titans. Walker is a well built tight end with decent speed. Once he gets the ball, he is tough to bring down at around 240 pounds. Walker will struggle at times with dropped passes but improved on that area a lot in recent seasons.

Fantasy Outlook:  
   Walker is going to have a hard time repeating last year, especially with other options emerging in the passing game for the Titans. But even with that said, you still have to like his potential in this emerging offense. He can be a top-10 fantasy tight end, getting around 80 receptions for 900 yards and six or seven touchdowns.

 #128  Ladarius Green (TE) Yr: 2015  TDs: 4  Yds: 429  Recpts: 37PittsburghBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Green set career highs last season across the board, finishing with 37 receptions for 429 yards and four touchdowns. He got pretty consistent work in a reserve role for the Chargers. He gets his chance to start this season for the Steelers, though. He will be the No. 1 tight end in a very good offense. Green is a big-time athlete. He has size, speed and leaping ability. Green remains a bit raw but is getting more seasoned, especially after last season.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Green is a very intriguing fantasy player this season, getting his chance to start in an explosive offense. He is going to have some big games and should be considered a low-end No. 1 for fantasy teams. He could really do well for the Steelers and fantasy teams. Expect around 65 receptions for 800 yards and six or seven touchdowns.

 #129  Isaiah Crowell (RB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 4  Yds: 706  Rush: 185ClevelandBye: 13 
 
Player News:
Crowell was the starter much of the year for the Browns and had double-digit carries all but three games. He did alright in a starting role, finishing with 888 total yards and five touchdowns. Crowell will have a chance to start again this year but will need to earn the job this offseason and training camp. He won't be handed anything. Crowell has good size for the position but also possesses solid moves and enough speed to make plays to the outside. He isn't a great pass catcher just yet, though, and will need to improve in that area if he ever hopes to be a three-down back. Fantasy Outlook: Crowell isn't a very exciting fantasy option. The Browns could rotate backs often again this year, making Crowell a bit of a wild card for fantasy teams. Count on him to be a No. 3 or 4 back for fantasy teams. Crowell should get around 700 or 800 total yards and four or five touchdowns.
 #130  James Starks (RB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 2  Yds: 601  Rush: 148Green BayBye: 4 
 
Player News:
Starks had a solid season, splitting work with Eddie Lacy for the Packers. Starks finished with 993 total yards and five touchdowns. He averaged 4.1 yards per carry and caught 43 passes. All his totals were career highs. Starks is 30 years old but probably seems best suited to split the work at running back. He isn't explosive in any one area but a solid overall back. Starks hits the hole in a hurry and does pretty well between the tackles. He can run with some power because of his size. Starks also catches the ball pretty well out of the backfield. Fantasy Outlook: Starks might have a hard time repeating last season but can still finish with pretty good overall numbers in a platoon role. He could get around 700 total yards and a few scores with 25 or so receptions.
 #131  Kendall Wright (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 3  Yds: 408  Recpts: 36TennesseeBye: 13 
 
Player News:
Wright started last season well but finished with a dud. He had a 100-yard game in Week 1 and touchdowns two of his first three games. He didn't top 50 yards in a game after Week 3 and battled injury much of the season. It was a year to forget for Wright. Wright hasn't progressed in recent years since hitting the 1,000-yard mark. He remains a top target in this offense but more of a possession receiver. He doesn't have great size for the position but pretty good hands and runs good routes. He battles consistency issues and the occasional drop. He can have a little trouble when corners try to get physical with him. Fantasy Outlook: Wright could rebound this season but don't expect a huge turnaround. His career is trending the wrong way. The good news for him is the Titans offense could be very good this season, giving him some chances. He could get around 65 receptions for 800 yards and five or so scores.
 #132  Kenyan Drake (RB) MiamiBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Drake was taken by the Dolphins in the third-round of this year's draft with the hopes of serving a change-of-pace back role with the team. Drake lacks some size for the position but has great moves in space and can get to the next level in a hurry. He is a solid receiver out of the backfield and can do a lot of damage in the passing game. He probably lacks the ideal size to be an every-down back.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Drake has some potential in a pass-friendly offense. He'll get his chances in the passing game. He could finish with around 700 total yards, 30 receptions and five or so scores. He has some value as a reserve for fantasy teams.

 #133  Zach Miller (TE) Yr: 2015  TDs: 5  Yds: 439  Recpts: 34ChicagoBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Miller found his way into the starting lineup because of injury and played a bigger role even when he wasn't starting, getting a chance to make some big plays. He had a 100-yard game and finished with at least five receptions his last three games of the season. He had 439 yards and five scores despite doing next to nothing the first half of the season. Miller has a chance to start from day one for the Bears this season. Miller has some upside as a pass catcher but hasn't lived up to his potential - until his finish to last season. Miller is fast for the tight end position and a good athlete. He still isn't much of a blocker, which will need to improve if he starts this season.

Fantasy Outlook:  
   Miller is a fantasy player on the rise. He could do some damage as a starter because of his big-play ability. Consider him a top No. 2 for the coming year. He is setup for a breakout season. He could get around 55 receptions for 700 yards and six or seven scores.

 #134  Kenny Stills (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 3  Yds: 440  Recpts: 27MiamiBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Stills didn't live up to his big contract last season, finishing with just 440 yards and three scores his first season with the Dolphins. He showed some big-play ability, averaging 16.3 yards per reception, but didn't get many chances offensively. His season high in yards was just 81, which came in Week 4. A new coaching staff could be a positive for Stills, though. He will compete for a starting job to open the season. 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 could surprise this year if he gets the playing time. He is always capable of the big game. He might be worth taking a chance on as a reserve in what should be a good passing game. Stills can get around 50 receptions for 850 yards and four of five scores.

 #135  Kenneth Dixon (RB) BaltimoreBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Dixon was a highly-productive college back, serving as the focal point of the offense almost his entire career. He was a three-down back in college that excelled in the passing game. He could fill that third-down role this season before challenging for the starter's job in a few years. Dixon might lack a little six to be an every-down back right now. He has plus hands, though, and does well in pass protection.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Dixon has some total yardage potential, playing behind an aging back. He could get some weekly chances, especially in the passing game. He is worth a look as a No. 3 or 4 back. Expect around 700 total yards and four or so scores.

 #136  Darren Sproles (RB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 3  Yds: 317  Rush: 83PhiladelphiaBye: 4 
 
Player News:
Sproles had another productive season as the third-down back for the Eagles. He had 55 receptions and finished with 705 total yards and four touchdowns. He had double-digit carries just twice all season but at least three receptions 11 of 16 games. Sproles has a chance to fill a similar role this year but at age 33, he'll have to show something in preseason and camp to keep the job. He won't be handed playing time if he isn't displaying his same burst as past seasons. Sproles has been maybe the best third-down or change-of-pace back in the game the last several seasons. He fits the role perfectly. Sproles has great speed and moves, but lacks the ideal size to be an every-down back. He also is a great return man, having return scores six of the last nine seasons. Fantasy Outlook: Sproles isn't a lock to repeat last season but should be worth grabbing come draft day, especially in PPR formats. Expect a bit of a drop but not much. He didn't show many signs of slowing down last season. He'll get around 600 total yards with 40 receptions and five or so scores.
 #137  Corey Coleman (WR) ClevelandBye: 13 
 
Player News:
The Browns used their first pick in the draft on a receiver, grabbing Coleman. He should be a starter from day one for the Browns. Coleman does a great job of getting in and out of breaks. He can turn a short pass into a big play in a hurry. He does need work on his route running, though, and lacks a little size for the position.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Coleman is going to get his work in this offense. He isn't a sure thing to post big numbers in what could be a below-average passing game but is going to be capable of the big game. He can get around 60 receptions for 800 yards and five or so scores.

 #138  Will Fuller (WR) HoustonBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Fuller was taken in the first round of this year's draft. He is going to get a chance to start opposite DeAndre Hopkins. Fuller is a big-play threat that does a great job of stretching the field. He should be able to keep defenses honest with Hopkins on the other side of him. Fuller has top speed for the position. He isn't great on shorter routes just yet, though, and needs to shore up his route running.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Fuller is going to have some big games but likely be hit or miss. He'll be a tough weekly play for fantasy teams but worth some spot starts. Expect around 50 receptions for 800 yards and six scores.

 #139  Jermaine Kearse (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 5  Yds: 685  Recpts: 49SeattleBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Kearse had a productive season for the Seahawks, starting much of the year. He had 49 receptions for 685 yards and five scores. His best game was during the playoffs, though, catching 11 passes for 110 yards and two scores against the Panthers. Kearse set career highs across the board last year and should be setup for a similar role this season. 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 60 receptions for 850 yards and five or so scores. We don't see a huge jump in production.

 #140  Ryan Tannehill (QB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 24  Yds: 4208  Int: 12MiamiBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Tannehill was expected to take a step forward last season but that didn't happen. He had another up and down season, finishing 15th overall in fantasy quarterback scoring. Tannehill had topped 4,000-passing yards but scored just 35 total touchdowns while getting intercepted 12 times. The problem was consistency, having no passing touchdowns four games. Tannehill is the starting quarterback for the Dolphins and a new coaching staff could help jumpstart his career. Tannehill is a big kid with a strong arm that moves around the pocket well and will make plays with his feet. He is pretty accurate for a young quarterback and continues to improve in reading defenses. The Dolphins are more of a pass-first team, giving Tannehill plenty of chances to throw the ball.

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

 #141  Tony Romo (QB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 5  Yds: 884  Int: 7DallasBye: 7 
 
Player News:
Romo had an injury plagued season, breaking his collarbone two different times. He was limited to four games all season. He also struggled some in his games, having five touchdowns to seven interceptions. He remains the starter for the Cowboys, though, and should be for the next few seasons. Romo has at least 26 touchdowns the last seven full seasons he has played. The Cowboys aren't as pass heavy as recent seasons but will still air it out. Romo will continue to get his chances. He has a plus arm and does well making plays on the run. Romo will force some throws and make some bad decisions but has improved in that area later in his career. He is 36 years old, so he has a few years left at playing at a high level.

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

 #142  Breshad Perriman (WR) BaltimoreBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Perriman didn't play a snap his rookie season because of a knee injury. He is well on his way to recovery, though, and should be just fine for the start of camp and the season. Perriman will get his chance to compete for a starting job for the Ravens. Even if he doesn't start, he should at least serve as a 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. His numbers should improve with more seasoning but for now, expect around 50 receptions for 800 yards and five scores.

 #143  Pierre Garcon (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 6  Yds: 777  Recpts: 72WashingtonBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Garcon saw a little increase in his numbers from the previous season but still didn't have huge numbers as a starter for the Redskins. He had 72 receptions for 777 yards and six scores. He failed to have a 100-yard games all season but did have at least three receptions in all but a game. Garson has averaged 70 receptions for 765 yards and five touchdowns the past two seasons. He should continue to play a similar role this year for the Redskins. 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:  
His numbers the last two seasons don't lie. He hasn't done much for fantasy teams and shouldn't see a huge increase in production this year. He should get around 70 receptions for 800 yards with five or six touchdowns. He is a reserve option for fantasy teams.

 #144  Brandon Coleman (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 2  Yds: 454  Recpts: 30New OrleansBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Coleman was up and down in a reserve role for the Saints. He got more playing time but his season high in yards was just 81, which came the last week of the season. He finished with 454-receiving yards and two scores. Coleman has a chance to earn a bigger role from day on this year, though. He'll compete for the No. 2 or 3 receiver spot. Coleman is a very big target with pretty good speed and decent hands. He can serve as a top deep threat because of his size and speed. He needs to improve his consistency to be a top receiver in the NFL.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Coleman should be considered a sleeper for the coming year. He has some potential in this pass-first offense if he gets the playing time. For now, count on about 50 receptions for 700 yards and five or so scores.

 #145  Jordan Howard (RB) ChicagoBye: 9 
 
Player News:
The Bears took Howard in this year's draft with the hope that he emerges as the top backup for the team. Howard is a punishing runner that does his best work between the tackles. He finishes his runs well and does a great job of getting downhill in a hurry. Howard also doesn't have bad hands for a big back. Howard has some durability issues because of his running style, though. He also lacks some breakaway speed.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Howard might be the top short-yardage back on this team, giving him some fantasy potential. Don't expect huge numbers but he could help fantasy teams in a reserve role. Expect around 400 total yards and four or so scores.

 #146  Nelson Agholor (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 1  Yds: 283  Recpts: 23PhiladelphiaBye: 4 
 
Player News:
Agholor didn't have quite the rookie season as expected. He topped 50 yards just twice and scored just a touchdowns on 23 receptions. He'll get a chance to compete for a starting job in a new offense this year, though. Agholor 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 struggled some last season with the speed of the NFL game.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Agholor will get his chances in this offense. The Eagles don't have much else to turn to, so he'll get a chance to compete for an expanded role. Consider him a No. 4 for fantasy teams, though. He has a chance to get around 50 receptions for 700 yards and four or five scores.

 #147  Rashad Jennings (RB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 3  Yds: 863  Rush: 195New York GiantsBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Jennings finished the season with a flourish after doing little early in the year. He had 100-yard games two of his last three and a season-high 170-rushing yards the last game of the season. He finished the season with 100-plus total yards four straight games. Jennings had fewer than 65-rushing yards his first 12 games of the season, though. Jennings might be best suited for back duty at this stage of his career. He is 31 years old and never topped 1,000-rushing yards in a season. Jennings has been a solid third-down back throughout much of his career. He has good hands for the passing game and big-play ability. He also displays very good speed. Jennings doesn't run with a ton of power, though, and isn't great between the tackles but made improvements in both those areas the last few seasons. Fantasy Outlook: Jennings could see a dip in production with fewer touches, which seems likely. He still has some potential as a No. 3 back but don't count on him to be anything more than that. Look for a season with around 700 total yards and a few scores.
 #148  Rueben Randle (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 8  Yds: 797  Recpts: 57PhiladelphiaBye: 4 
 
Player News:
Randle had another up and down season for the Giants. He was just three yards shy of 800 and scored eight touchdowns, including scores his last four games of the season. He had nine games with fewer than 50 yards, though, showing his inconsistency. He also struggled with some drops at key times. Randle won't be handed anything this year and will have to prove his worth to continue to get his usual snaps but at least gets a fresh start with the Eagles. He could be the No. 3 receiver for his new team. 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 always has big-game and touchdown potential but expect many bumps along the way. He is a frustrating fantasy player. Consider him a No. 4 or 5, using him on a spot start basis. He can get around 50 receptions for 700 yards and five scores.

 #149  Chris Johnson (RB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 3  Yds: 814  Rush: 196ArizonaBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Johnson took over the starting job for the Cardinals early in the season and did well in that role before breaking his leg. He was having a nice bounce-back season. Johnson had 872 total yards in 11 games. He averaged 4.2 yards per carry and had double-digit carries in every game. Johnson finished with four 100-yard games, showing big-game potential. Johnson turns 31 shortly after the start of the season, so his career is likely trending in a downward fashion. He is best suited as a backup or guy to split the running back duties. Johnson still has plus speed and great moves in the open field. He also runs with a little power for a back of his size. Johnson also is a very good receiver, catching at least 24 passes each of his first seven seasons in the league. Fantasy Outlook: Johnson showed a lot last season, but he likely won't get near that workload this year. He is worth a reserve look for fantasy teams but that is about it. He'll be up and down. Expect around 700 total yards and a few scores.
 #150  Ted Ginn Jr. (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 10  Yds: 739  Recpts: 44CarolinaBye: 7 
 
Player News:
Ginn was a starter much of the year for the Panthers because of injury. He had some big games in that role, averaging 16.8 yards per reception. He scored 10 touchdowns and had 739-receiving yards. He did have some bad drops but did a good job of stretching the field for the Panthers. Ginn should move to more of a reserve role this season, being used to stretch the field. 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 going to repeat last season. He has some touchdown and big-game potential but he'll be really hit or miss. He could get around 35 receptions for 600 yards and five or six touchdowns.

 #151  Bilal Powell (RB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 1  Yds: 313  Rush: 70New York JetsBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Powell had one of his most productive seasons as a pro, mainly because of all his work in the passing game. He had a career high 47 receptions. He also missed five games, so his numbers could have been better. He finished with 701 total yards and three scores as the change-of-pace back for the Jets. Powell serves the role well, having 36 or more receptions two of the past three seasons. Powell is more of a power back, doing well as a downhill runner and between the tackles. He doesn't have breakaway speed, but is a solid one-cut runner. Powell also catches the ball well and can be an asset in the passing game despite not looking the part. Fantasy Outlook: Powell was 34th in fantasy running back scoring last season despite missing five games, so don't overlook him come draft day. He can help as a flex play because of his consistent work in the passing game. He could get around 650 total yards and 45 receptions with a few scores.
 #152  Dion Lewis (RB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 2  Yds: 234  Rush: 49New EnglandBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Lewis was having a breakout season as the top pass-catching back for the Patriots, but had his season cut short because of a torn ACL. He had 36 receptions and 622 total yards in just seven games. Lewis proved he could be a top change-of-pace back in the NFL, a role he'll compete for this season as long as he is healthy. Lewis is a small back with good moves and plus hands. He makes plays in space and can be an asset in the passing game. Lewis also doesn't do too badly between the tackles despite not being the biggest back.

Fantasy Outlook:  
His injury is a concern but once he gets back to full strength, he can help fantasy teams, especially in PPR formats. Don't expect a repeat of last season but he'll get some catches. He could finish with around 40 receptions and 600 total yards with a few scores.

 #153  Michael Thomas (WR) New OrleansBye: 5 
 
Player News:
The Saints hoped to have found their new Marques Colston. Thomas was taken in the second round of the draft with the hopes of him emerging as a starter in this offense. Thomas is a bit receiver that runs very good routes and has plus hands. He lacks a little top speed, though, and isn't going to be a top deep threat. He should be the No. 3 or 4 to open the season but could move up to start before long.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Thomas should get his chances as a rookie in this pass-first offense. He is worth a late-round grab with the hopes he becomes a starter in this offense. For now, expect around 45 receptions for 600 yards and five or so scores.

 #154  C.J. Prosise (RB) SeattleBye: 5 
 
Player News:
The Seahawks added some much needed depth to the running back spot, taking Prosise in the third round of the this year's draft. Prosise started his college career as a receiver but moved to running back and had a big senior season. He has good size for the position and also good moves in space. He catches the ball well and can be an asset in the passing game. He might lack a little home-run speed and still needs to work on his between the tackles running. He has a good chance to be the top backup for the Seahawks his rookie season.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Prosise has some three-down ability, so he is an intriguing player if he finds his way into the lineup on a frequent basis. He is worth a late-round grab with Thomas Rawls returning from injury this year. He could get around 600 total yards with a few scores.

 #155  Mike Wallace (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 2  Yds: 473  Recpts: 39BaltimoreBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Wallace had a poor first season with the Vikings, finishing with fewer than 500 yards for the first time in his career. He had more than 50 yards just twice all year and his season high in yards was 83. It was a season to forget for Wallace. He was released by the Vikings during the offseason and signed with the Ravens, which should be a good fit for Wallace. He had five straight seasons with 800-plus yards before last year. He turns 30 before the start of the season and has shown signs of slowing down, but will be given plenty of opportunities to stretch the field with the Ravens. Wallace has great speed and the ability to make a big play every time the ball is in his hands (averages 15.2 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. Fantasy Outlook: Wallace has a chance to rebound some from last year but don't expect a huge season by any means. He is more of a reserve pick for fantasy teams, hoping he plays at a high level once again. Wallace could get around 60 receptions for 800 yards and four or so touchdowns.
 #156  Darren McFadden (RB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 3  Yds: 1089  Rush: 239DallasBye: 7 
 
Player News:
McFadden quickly emerged as the starter for the Cowboys last season and had his second 1,000-yard season of his career. He had five 100-yard games and finished with 1,417 total yards. The big fantasy knock on him was a lack of scores, finding the end zone just three times. The rest of his numbers were great, averaging 4.6 yards per carry while catching 40 passes. McFadden proved he could be a starter in this league once again. He turns 29 before the start of the season, so he is running out of time to remain starting. He'll move to a backup role this season with Cowboys taking Ezekiel Elliott in the draft. McFadden is a pretty complete back. He catches the ball well, can churn out the tough yards and has enough speed to make the big play every time he touches the ball. He can be a game changer. He has a hard time staying healthy, though, but has played a full season the last two years. Fantasy Outlook: McFadden had about a career year last year but was still just 13th in fantasy running back scoring. He isn't going to repeat with Elliott getting most of the work at running back for the Cowboys. He might get around 500 or so total yards with a few scores. His stock took a big hit after the NFL draft.
 #157  Cecil Shorts III (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 2  Yds: 484  Recpts: 42HoustonBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Shorts had some injury issues, which kept him out of some games, but produced pretty well when playing. He had 42 receptions in 11 games in his first season with the Texans. He had multiple receptions all but a game. His season high in yards was just 87, though. He is a good fit for the slot and should compete for that job this season 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 if healthy but don't expect a big jump. He is worth a look as a No. 4 or 5 fantasy receiver. He'll get his receptions in this offense. He can finish with around 55 receptions for 700 yards and four or so touchdowns.

 #158  Khiry Robinson (RB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 4  Yds: 180  Rush: 56New York JetsBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Robinson broke his leg in Week 8 and missed the remainder of the esaosn. He didn't do a whole lot before the injury but was getting some chances. He scored four touchdowns but average just 3.2 yards per carry and didn't top 50-rushing yards in a game. Robinson had multiple receptions six of eight games. Robinson remains more backup material for NFL teams. He'll try to win a depth role this season with the Jets, likely serving as the No. 3 on the team. Robinson has eight career touchdowns in three seasons but his season high in rushing yards is just 362. Robinson has good speed but enough power to make plays inside. He has a good build for the running back position. He is improving as a receiver but still isn't a polished player in that role. He has lacked some consistency since entering the league. Fantasy Outlook: Robinson seemed primed for good things last season but wasn't doing much before getting hurt last year. He remains a ho-hum option at the position for fantasy teams. He might get around 400 or 500 total yards with a few scores.
 #159  Reggie Bush (RB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 0  Yds: 28  Rush: 8---Bye: - 
 
Player News:
Bush suffered a freak knee injury last year, slipping on the sidelines after running out of bounds. He needed knee surgery but avoided the dreaded ACL tear. He should be ready to go for the coming year. Bush had just 12 touches in five games before the injury. You have to wonder how much he has left in the tank. He is 31 years old and coming off a knee injury. Nothing is guaranteed for Bush going forward. He'll compete for a reserve role. Bush still has pretty explosive speed with great moves in the open field. He has struggled with some consistency issues in the past but done better in that area later in his career. Bush can still be a playmaker in the open field. He has struggled with injuries throughout his career, playing a full season twice in 10 years. Fantasy Outlook: Bush still has a little value in PPR formats but don't expect his numbers from past seasons. He is on a downward trend. He might get around 30 receptions and 400 or so total yards if all goes well for him. He'll be a bit of a risky pick this year because of the question marks.
 #160  Sterling Shepard (WR) New York GiantsBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Shepard was taken in the second round of this year's draft. He has a great chance to be the No. 3 or slot receiver for the Giants his rookie season. He is a great fit for the slot, getting in and out of his breaks in a hurry. He can turn a short pass into a big play in a hurry. He isn't the biggest receiver but is a top athlete. Shepard can really jump and has the speed to make plenty of big plays.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Shepard is going to get some chances in this pass-first offense. He can get around 55 receptions for 700 yards with four or five scores. He could be worth some spot starts along the way.

 #161  Kamar Aiken (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 5  Yds: 944  Recpts: 75BaltimoreBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Aiken had a breakout season for the Ravens, starting much of the year for the team because of injury. He finished just 56 yards shy of a 1,000-yard season and caught 75 passes. He had eight games with 70-plus yards, serving as the No. 1 for the Ravens most of the year. Aiken showed he can be a productive starter in this league. He might not start this year for the Ravens but will at least be the No. 3 for the team. Aiken has decent size for the receiver position. He runs pretty good routes and has enough speed to stretch the field. He has petty good hands and a knack for getting open. He doesn't excel in any one area but is pretty solid across the board. He proved last season he can be more than a special teams player.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Aiken probably hit his ceiling last year. He could still finish with decent numbers in this pass-first offense. He is worth a reserve pick for fantasy teams. Aiken could get 55 or so receptions for 700 yards with a few scores.

 #162  Anquan Boldin (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 4  Yds: 789  Recpts: 69---Bye: - 
 
Player News:
Boldin had a solid season as the top target for the 49ers but saw his numbers dip compared to past years. He finished with 69 receptions for 789 yards and four scores. He had two 100-yard games and multiple receptions every game. An inconsistent offense didn't help his production, though. He had two straight 1,000-yard seasons before last year. Boldin is 35 years old and you have to think he is slowing down. Boldin is a big, strong receiver. He isn't a speed demon, but runs good routes and has solid hands. He can still move the chains for teams in a starting role.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Boldin is on the decline. It wouldn't surprise to see his number dip again. He could get around 50 receptions for around 700 yards and a few scores. He is a reserve pick for fantasy teams.

 #163  Leonte Carroo (WR) MiamiBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Carroo has some off the field issues, which is why his draft stock fell. He has plenty of talent, though. He is a top deep threat that made plenty of big plays in college. Carroo has great straight line speed and can get past defenders in a hurry on the deep ball. He needs to work on running all routes, though, and might just be a deep threat at this stage of his young career. He will serve as the No. 3 or 4 for the Dolphins this season.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Carroo is going to get some chances to make big plays and have a few plus games along the way, but he is going to be erratic in his current role. He could get around 40 receptions for 600 yards with four or so scores.

 #164  Tyler Boyd (WR) CincinnatiBye: 9 
 
Player News:
The Bengals used a second-round pick on Boyd, hoping to find a starter opposite A.J. Green. Body will get a chance to compete for that job this season but could open the year as the No. 3 or 4 for the team. Boyd is a good route runner for a young player and has very good hands. He lacks a little elite speed but still runs pretty well for the position.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Boyd has a chance for some big games this year in this offense. He'll get some weekly looks but likely is going to be erratic with Green and Tyler Eifert leading the team in targets. Expect around 40 receptions for 600 yards with four or five scores.

 #165  Chris Hogan (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 2  Yds: 450  Recpts: 36New EnglandBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Hogan had a fine season in a reserve role for the Bills, catching 36 passes for 450 yards and two scores. He had just three games with 50-plus yards but did have multiple receptions nine times. He had a very similar season the previous year with the Bills. Hogan has a chance to grab a bigger role this season, signing with the Patriots during the offseason. He could start or serve as the No. 3 or 4 receiver for the team. He is going to compete for playing time with a host of options. Hogan isn't a flashy receiver but has good size and moves the chains. He is a good fit for the slot but showed last season he could lineup on the outside and make plays.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Hogan has a chance to set career highs this year if he lands a good spot on the depth chart. He moves to a great passing attack and gets maybe the best quarterback in the game throwing him passes. Things are looking good for him this season. But he isn't going to be a huge fantasy option, having sporadic production. He can get around 50 receptions for 600 yards with a few scores, making him a good depth guy for fantasy teams.

 #166  Jaelen Strong (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 3  Yds: 161  Recpts: 14HoustonBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Strong didn't get much work until late in the season, having multiple receptions three straight games to end his rookie season. He had just 14 catches all season, though. He has some work to do to move up the depth chart and play a big role in the passing game. It is possible, though, for Strong to start this year if he has a good camp and preseason. He is a big, strong target at the receiver position. 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.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Strong can take a step forward this season but don't expect a breakout year. He is likely to be up and own for fantasy teams. He could get around 50 receptions for 650 yards and a few scores.

 #167  Kyle Juszczyk (RB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 0  Yds: 3  Rush: 2BaltimoreBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Juszczyk continues to emerge as a solid pass-catching option for the Ravens. He had a career-high 41 receptions for 321 yards and four scores last season. Juszczyk was a great fit for the new offense and got plenty of chances in his fullback role. He carried the ball just two times but made up for that with all his work in the passing game. Juszczyk serves the role well and should continue starting at fullback. Juszczyk is a good pass catcher and has good speed for a fullback. He excels as a blocker, though. He isn't likely getting many chances to run the ball but should continue to get receptions. Fantasy Outlook: Juszczyk will have a hard time repeating last season but will get his work for the Ravens. He can get around 30 or so receptions, making him a little bit of help for teams in PPR leagues.
 #168  Corey Brown (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 4  Yds: 447  Recpts: 31CarolinaBye: 7 
 
Player News:
Brown found his way into the staring lineup for the Panthers last season because of injury and produced pretty well in that role. His numbers weren't off the charts but he had multiple receptions 11 games and had three receptions each of his last four games. He made some plays with his chances. He should move back to a No. 3 receiver role this season, a role he serves well. Brown lacks some size for the receiver spot but runs good routes and makes plays in pace.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Brown will still get his chances even if he isn't starting. He could actually improve on last season, having more room to run out of the slot. He could get around 40 receptions for 500 yards with a few scores.

 #169  Josh Doctson (WR) WashingtonBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Doctson was taken in the first round of this year's draft with the hopes the Redskins have found a starter for the future. He is likely to be No. 3 or 4 on the depth chart this season but is going to be a starter before long. Doctson catches nearly everything thrown his way. He is a huge receiver with long arms and top leaping ability. He can make plenty of big plays with his size and speed.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Doctson isn't setup for a great rookie year but could have a few decent games along the way. He is going to be a much better fantasy player in a few seasons. For now, expect around 40 receptions for 600 yards and a few scores.

 #170  Martellus Bennett (TE) Yr: 2015  TDs: 3  Yds: 439  Recpts: 53New EnglandBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Some fractured ribs ended his season early last year but Bennett was having a decent season before getting hurt. He had 53 receptions for 439 yards and three scores. He was getting his catches but not many yards, averaging just 8.3 yards per reception. And he fell out of favor with the coaching staff late in the year, causing him to get less playing time. Bennett gets a fresh start with a new team this year, though, playing for the Patriots. He'll serve as the No. 2 tight end and try to fill the Aaron Hernandez role in the offense from a few years back. Before last season, Bennett had 750-plus yards two straight seasons with the Bears. Bennett can make big plays because of his size and speed. Bennett isn't much of a blocker, though, and his work ethic has been questioned in the past. He'll need to have a good attitude if he hopes to play a big role with the Patriots.

Fantasy Outlook:  
   Bennett has plenty of potential with the Patriots. He can be a big part of the passing game. But don't overvalue him because of the move. He is going to be a little hit or miss. He can get around 60 receptions for 700 yards and five or six scores.

 #171  Antonio Gates (TE) Yr: 2015  TDs: 5  Yds: 630  Recpts: 56San DiegoBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Gates was suspended early in the year and missed another because of injury, but he had another productive season once on the field. He was 12th overall in fantasy tight end scoring despite missing five games. He finished with 56 receptions for 630 yards and five scores in 11 games. Gates didn't have a 100-yard game but eight of 11 with 50 or more yards. Just when you thought Gates was done, he has another productive season. Gates is 36 years old and has a bit of an injury history, so you have to wonder how much he has left in the tank. It is hard to ignore the numbers, though, which remain very consistent. He'll continue to start for the Chargers this year. Gates seems to have lost some of his speed but still does a great job of running routes and catching passes. He isn't the big-play threat of past years but can move the chains and do well in the red zone.

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

 #172  Dwayne Allen (TE) Yr: 2015  TDs: 1  Yds: 109  Recpts: 16IndianapolisBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Allen had a season to forget, struggling to do much with the Colts entire offense doing little. Allen caught just 16 passes for 109 yards on the season. He did not top 25 yards in a game. The Colts still re-signed Allen to a big contract with the hopes of him being the No. 1 tight end going forward. Allen is a solid pass catcher with a knack for picking up first downs. He has enough speed to stretch the field and is a tough cover because of his size. He isn't a great blocker but has gotten better in that area.

Fantasy Outlook:  
   Allen should do better this season, serving as the starter and having a healthy Andrew Luck back in the mix. Allen still shouldn't be considered a top fantasy starter. He is more of a spot starter. He'll be erratic. Allen can finish with around 45 receptions for 600 yards and five or six scores.

 #173  Kyle Rudolph (TE) Yr: 2015  TDs: 5  Yds: 495  Recpts: 49MinnesotaBye: 6 
 
Player News:
Rudolph didn't have the breakout season as expected last year, finishing 15th overall in fantasy tight end scoring. He finished five yards shy of 500 and a catch short of 50. He did score five touchdowns, serving as a solid red-zone target for the team. He could get more work this year if the Vikings make more strides throwing the ball. Rudolph has failed to top 500 yards in any season in the NFL. He is the No. 1 tight end for the Vikings but could be in a make or break season. Rudolph isn't much of a blocker but a top pass catcher. He has plus speed, very good hands and the ability to make the tough catch.

Fantasy Outlook:  
   Rudolph has plenty of talent and the potential for good things but it is hard to trust him based on his track record. Take a solid tight end as your No. 1 and hope Rudolph has a breakthrough season as your No. 2 fantasy tight end. He can get 50 receptions for 550 yards with five or so touchdowns.

 #174  Zach Ertz (TE) Yr: 2015  TDs: 2  Yds: 853  Recpts: 75PhiladelphiaBye: 4 
 
Player News:
Ertz had a slow start to last season but finished with a flourish, padding his overall numbers. He didn't top 50 yards the first four weeks but had at least five receptions and 78 yards each of the last four games of the season. He finished the season with two straight 100-yard games. He set career highs across the board and was ninth overall in fantasy tight end scoring. Ertz is the No. 1 tight end for the Eagles and could get even more work from day one this year. Ertz isn't really a speed demon at tight end but runs very good routes for a young player and has solid hands. He also blocks pretty well but isn't an elite blocker by any means. He does lack a little speed to create big plays down the field but makes up for that with his hands and route running.

Fantasy Outlook:  
  Ertz is a fantasy tight end on the upswing. Most thought last year was going to be a breakout one for Ertz but that didn't happen until late in the year. He can be a top-10 tight end from day one this year. Ertz can finish with 80 receptions for around 900 yards and five or six touchdowns.

 #175  Tyrod Taylor (QB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 20  Yds: 3035  Int: 6BuffaloBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Taylor won the starter's job before last season and had a very good first year as the starter for the Bills. He has earned that job for the next several years. Taylor had 24 total touchdowns to just six interceptions. He completed an impressive 64 percent of his passes and ran for nearly 600 yards. Taylor was a top dual threat that was a big plus for the Bills offense. He had four three-touchdown games. He did have some struggles along the way, but should improve his consistency with more seasoning. Taylor has a very strong arm and throws a good deep ball. He will struggled with accuracy at times and still holds onto the ball a little long, but is improving in both areas. He doesn't force many passes and will make plays with his legs when given a chance.

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

 #176  Ryan Fitzpatrick (QB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 31  Yds: 3905  Int: 15New York JetsBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Fitzpatrick had arguably the best season of his career, finishing 12th overall in fantasy quarterback scoring. He was a big surprise as the starter for the Jets, having 33 total touchdowns to 15 interceptions. He finished 95 yards shy of a 4,000-yard season. He set career highs in passing yards and touchdown passes. Fitzpatrick had just one 300-yard game but nine games with 250-plus yards. He earned another season as the starter for the Jets with his big season last year. Fitzpatrick doesn't have a great arm, but runs well for a quarterback and has a knack for making plays. He has at least 184 or more rushing yards seven of eight seasons. Fitzpatrick doesn't throw a great deep ball and will force some throws, but does a good job of hitting his receivers in stride. He formed a great rapport with Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker last season, making tons of big plays with both players.

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

 #177  Marcus Mariota (QB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 19  Yds: 2818  Int: 10TennesseeBye: 13 
 
Player News:
A knee injury cut his season short, but Mariota has a fine rookie year for the Titans. He had 22 touchdowns to 10 interceptions and there for nearly 3,000 yards despite missing four games and playing little in another. Mariota had plenty of big games along the way, having four three-touchdown games. He also threw for more than 200 yards all but three games, showing some consistency as a rookie. He did fail to score a touchdown five times, proving he wasn't a sure thing every week just yet. Mariota is the franchise quarterback and starter for years to come. He fits the role well, showing last season he could be a superstar in this league. He has good size, a great arm and can make plays on the move. He can make all the throws and also runs well at the position. He will turnover the ball a little more than you would like but will makes strides in that area as he gets older.

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

 #178  Sam Bradford (QB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 19  Yds: 3725  Int: 14PhiladelphiaBye: 4 
 
Player News:
Bradford had an up and down season as the starter for the Eagles. He had 19 touchdowns to 14 interceptions but did complete 65 percent of his passes for nearly 4,000 yards. He also missed a couple games because of injury, so his numbers could have been better. He finished the season well, which is encouraging going forward. He had 300-yard games three straight to end his year and five touchdowns during that stretch. Bradford is yet to have that breakout season but is capable. Bradford can make all the throws, is extremely accurate, and moves around the pocket well to make plays. Bradford is a better athlete than he is given credit for. He does lock onto a receiver too often, though, and doesn't do a great job of going through his progressions. He also has big-time durability concerns, playing a full season just once the past five seasons. Bradford should start again for the Eagles this year but is keeping the set warm for rookie Carson Wentz. If the Eagles struggle as a team, Bradford could find his way on the bench to give Wentz some playing time.

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

 #179  Jay Cutler (QB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 21  Yds: 3659  Int: 11ChicagoBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Cuter had a pretty good season in the Bears new offense last season. He was without his top receiver much of the year and his starting running back also was injured at times, but Cutler made some plays. He completed 64 percent of his passes and had 22 total touchdowns to 11 interceptions. Cutler remains the franchise quarterback for the Bears and could do even better this season, his second season in the offense and with better weapons to work with at receiver. Cuter has just one 4,000-yard season for his career and two seasons ago is his only to hit the 30-touchdown mark. He has a huge arm, though, and does a great job of making plays downfield. He can make all the throws. But he will make some poor decisions and force throws, turning the ball over too often for a guy that has played in the league for 10 seasons.

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

 #180  Brian Hartline (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 2  Yds: 523  Recpts: 46---Bye: - 
 
Player News:
Hartline had his season cut short because of a broken collarbone, which was a shame because he was playing his best football when he got hurt. Hartline had four straight games with at lest six receptions and 74 yards before getting hurt in Week 14. He finished the season with 46 receptions for 523 yards in 12 games. He has two 1,000-yard seasons in his career and plenty of success in a starting role. 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 14 touchdowns in seven 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. He'll get around 70 catches for 900 yards and a few scores as long as he is healthy.

 #181  Jamison Crowder (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 2  Yds: 604  Recpts: 59WashingtonBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Crowder grabbed the No. 3/slot receiver role his rookie season for the Redskins and excelled in that role. He caught 59 passes for 604 yards and two scores. He had at least four receptions eight games, proving to be a top possession receiver for the Redskins. He should continue to serve this role for years to come. Crowder 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.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Crowder is more of an option in PPR formats. He'll get his receptions and a few scores, but don't expect big yardage totals. He'll likely get around 65 receptions for 650 yards and a few scores. He can be worth some spot starts.

 #182  Steve Johnson (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 3  Yds: 497  Recpts: 45San DiegoBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Injuries marred an otherwise very good season for Johnson. He had 45 receptions in 10 games. Johnson had five games with five or more receptions. He was the No. 1 receiver for the Chargers many weeks with Keenan Allen injured. Johnson should return to his No. 3 receiver role with the Chargers this season, a role he serves well. Johnson is 30 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 topped 600 yards in three straight seasons, which is a little concerning. 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 going to get the same workload unless injury hits, but still has some value in a pass-first offense. He can get around 50 receptions for 600 yards and a few scores.

 #183  Alex Smith (QB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 20  Yds: 3486  Int: 7Kansas CityBye: 5 
 
Player News:
Smith had another respectable season as the starter for the Chiefs. He finished with 22 total touchdowns to just seven interceptions. He had a career high 3,486-passing yards, getting to throw the ball a little more because of an injury to Jamaal Charles. He also ran for a career-high 498 yards, which as a big plus for fantasy teams. Smith was 16th in fantasy quarterback scoring. He has 400-plus rushing yards two of the past three seasons. He runs very well for a quarterback. Smith has a big arm, moves around the pocket pretty well and will make plays running the ball. His accuracy has improved through the years and he limits turnovers. Smith doesn't take many of chances downfield, though, and plays a pretty conservative game although having Jeremy Maclin last season opened things up a bit for him. He has three straight 3,000-yard seasons with the Chiefs and at least 20-passing touchdowns two of those three years.

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

 #184  Teddy Bridgewater (QB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 14  Yds: 3231  Int: 9MinnesotaBye: 6 
 
Player News:
Bridgewater didn't have that breakout season that most expected. He didn't play badly but his overall numbers weren't too exciting. He had 17 total touchdowns to nine interceptions and threw for a little more than 3,000 yards. The Vikings were a run-first team that lead to Bridgewater being more for a game manager for the team. He had just two games all season with multiple touchdowns. He could get to air the ball out a tad more this season but don't expect the Vikings to be a pass-first team this year. Bridgewater is a top competitor and winner. He is a smart quarterback and has a knack for making the big play. He is a dual threat at quarterback, having 190-plus rushing yards each of his first two seasons. He doesn't have a great arm and struggles some with the deep ball but excels with the quick hitters and shorter throws.

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

 #185  Jason Witten (TE) Yr: 2015  TDs: 3  Yds: 713  Recpts: 77DallasBye: 7 
 
Player News:
Witten had his usual solid season last year, finishing 10th in fantasy tight end scoring. He scored just three touchdowns but caught 77 passes for 713 yards. And he racked up all those catches and yards without Tony Romo throwing him passes. Witten still produced consistent numbers. Witten is 34 years old but hasn't shown many signs of slowing down in recent years. He'll remain the No. 1 tight end for the Cowboy. Witten is an athletic tight end with above-average speed. He does well in traffic and has very good hands. He also is a favorite target of Tony Romo, which bodes well for his targets.

Fantasy Outlook:  
   Witten remains a good fantasy tight end but could slip a little more this season. His numbers have been decreasing some in recent seasons, which is a concern. He should get about 70 receptions for around 700 yards and five touchdowns. He is a low-end No. 1 fantasy tight end but make sure you have a good backup behind him, worthy of getting some starts. Witten isn't the elite tight end of past years.

 #186  Charles Clay (TE) Yr: 2015  TDs: 3  Yds: 528  Recpts: 51BuffaloBye: 10 
 
Player News:
A back injury cut Clay's season short last year but he did pretty well in his first season with the Bills. He caught 51 passes for 528 yards and three touchdowns in 13 games. He had one 100-yard game and five with 50-plus yards. He did his job as the No. 1 tight end for the Bills, a role he'll continue to serve this season. Clay is a good blocker with big-play ability at tight end. He has good speed to stretch the field and can make plays after the catch.

Fantasy Outlook:  
   Clay isn't a top fantasy tight end but worth a look as a low-end No. 1 or No. 2. He can have some big games in this offense. Expect around 65 receptions for 700 yards and five or so scores.

 #187  Marquess Wilson (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 1  Yds: 464  Recpts: 28ChicagoBye: 9 
 
Player News:
WIlson finished with the best numbers of his career last year, catching 28 passes in 11 games. He had nearly 500 yards and averaged 16.6 yards per reception, showing his big-play potential. He'll compete for the starting opposite Alshon Jeffery but likely serves as the No. 3 for the Bears with a healthy Kevin White back in the mix. 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. Wilson has some injury concerns, failing to play a full season in three years.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Wilson could have some big games but likely will be hit or miss on a weekly basis. He can have around 650 yards and four or so scores. Consider him a No. 4 or 5 for fantasy teams.

 #188  Seth Roberts (WR) Yr: 2015  TDs: 5  Yds: 480  Recpts: 32OaklandBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Roberts emerged as the No. 3 receiver for the Raiders and served the role pretty well. He caught 32 passes for 480 yards and five scores. He even had a 100-yard showing in Week 12. Roberts is a good fit for the slot, a role he'll try to serve again this season. He doesn't have great strength but is a fast receiver that can turn a short pass into a big play. He also can stretch the field because of his length and speed.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Roberts might do a little better than last year but don't expect his numbers to be much better. He is behind two really good receivers on the depth chart that get most of the targets in the passing game. Roberts could get around 40 receptions for 550 yards with a few scores.

 #189  Jared Cook (TE) Yr: 2015  TDs: 0  Yds: 481  Recpts: 39Green BayBye: 4 
 
Player News:
Cook had his struggles last season as the entire Rams passing game was a mess. Cook caught 39 passes, which was his lowest total since joining the Rams. He also didn't score a touchdowns, which was the first time since his rookie season. Cook heads to Green Bay this season to serve as their starting tight end. Cook has 50-plus receptions two of the last three seasons and his career high in yards is 759. He moves to the best offense of his career this season in Green Bay. Cook has a ton of talent but hasn't produced quite as expected to date. He has a lot of upside because of his athleticism. Cook has plus speed and decent hands. He isn't going to help much as a blocker, but catches passes and runs routes like a receiver. He has lacked consistency throughout his career, though, and been plagued by bad drops.

Fantasy Outlook:  
   Cook could be worth some spot starts but don't expect a sudden monster season from Cook. He has been inconsistent throughout his career. He could get around 50 receptions for 600 yards and five or so scores.

 #190  Benjamin Watson (TE) Yr: 2015  TDs: 6  Yds: 825  Recpts: 74BaltimoreBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Watson had the best season of his long career last year with the Saints, taking over as the starting tight end for the team. He caught 74 passes for 825 yards and six scores, ranking him sixth in fantasy scoring at tight end. Watson had two 100-yard games and at least three receptions all but two games. He heads to the Ravens this season to likely take over as their starting tight end. Watson is a big, fast target over the middle and a nice deep threat, considering his size. He isn't much of a blocker, but has improved in that area later in his career, which is getting him on the field more.

Fantasy Outlook:  
  A move to Baltimore was a bad one for Watson's fantasy value. He could still have a few good games but he won't come near his production of last year. Consider him more of a No. 2 or 3 for this coming year. He could get around 50 receptions for 600 yards and four or five scores.

 #191  Jordan Cameron (TE) Yr: 2015  TDs: 3  Yds: 386  Recpts: 35MiamiBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Cameron didn't do much his first season with the Dolphins, catching just 35 passes for 386 yards and three scores. He has fewer than 430 yards each of the last two seasons after his huge year in 2013. He should get first shot to start this year but he'll need to prove his worth going forward to keep starting. Cameron has good speed, can jump and the size to be a top tight end. He still isn't a complete tight end just yet but is making strides as a blocker and route runner. He needs to improve his consistency to reach his potential, though.

Fantasy Outlook:  
   His big year a few seasons back is looking more like a fluke than a trend. Consider Cameron more of a No. 2 fantasy tight end. His numbers don't like. He'll get around 40 receptions for 500 yards and a few scores.

 #192  Javorius Allen (RB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 1  Yds: 514  Rush: 137BaltimoreBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Allen started plenty of games as a rookie because of an injury to Justin Forsett. Allen showed pretty well in this role, especially in the passing game. He finished with 45 receptions. Allen had 867 total yards and three touchdowns. He had at least three receptions seven times. Allen might not be suited to be an every-down back just yet but can be a top third-down back for the Ravens. He fits the role very well. Allen is an effective runner between the tackles but also has enough speed to bounce plays to the outside. Allen doesn't always make the right reads, though, and will lose some yards on occasion. He could improve his vision some to be a more complete back. Fantasy Outlook: Allen might have a hard time repeating his rookie season but he has potential in PPR leagues. He'll get his receptions in this offense. But consider him more of a reserve for fantasy teams this year. He could get around 700 total yards and 35 receptions with a few scores. His value takes a hit because he isn't likely to get many goal-line chances.
 #193  Joique Bell (RB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 4  Yds: 311  Rush: 90DetroitBye: 10 
 
Player News:
Bell was in and out of the starting lineup last season but didn't have quite the season of the past few years. He did miss three games with injury but had just double-digit carries two times all last season. He finished with 597 total yards and four touchdowns. He did do well in the passing game, catching 22 passes. Bell remains more of a complimentary back than a starter. He is going to be 30 years old before the season starts and his career high in rushing yards is 860. He does have at least 22 receptions in all his seasons. Bell has pretty good size for the running back spot and does well between the tackles. He doesn't have elite speed to make a bunch of plays to the outside but does well with his skill set. Bell is a good receiver out of the backfield and does well in short-yardage situations. Fantasy Outlook: Bell can help as a flex play or spot play for fantasy teams but don't count on him as an every-week starter. His numbers are going the wrong way at this stage of his career. He could get around 700 total yards and 25 receptions with a few scores.
 #194  Jacob Tamme (TE) Yr: 2015  TDs: 1  Yds: 657  Recpts: 59AtlantaBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Tamme had a productive first season with the Falcons, finishing with the second highest reception total (59) of his career and the most yards of his career (657). He had a 100-yard game and six games with 50-plus yards. The big knock on him was scoring just a touchdown. He did his job as the No. 1 tight end for the team, though, and should serve that role again this season. Tamme is a solid tight end with the speed to stretch the field. He plays more like a receiver than a tight end, making him a tough cover for the opposition. Tamme isn't much of a blocker, but he isn't used much in that role.

Fantasy Outlook:  
Tamme could actually improve his fantasy numbers this year because his touchdown total should get better. He can score more than one in this offense. He is a solid No. 2 for fantasy teams, getting around 55 receptions for 600 yards and four or so touchdowns.

 #195  DeAngelo Williams (RB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 11  Yds: 907  Rush: 200PittsburghBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Williams took advantage of getting plenty of starts last season because of suspension and injury to LeVeon Bell. Williams had a great year, finishing an amazing fifth overall in fantasy running back scoring despite not starting all year. Williams had 1,274 total yards and 11 touchdowns. He had four 100-yard games and at least four receptions six games. He proved he can still start in this league and was a great fit for the Steelers offense. He should assume a backup role with the team once again. Williams has plenty of starting experience and success, topping 1,000-rushing yards two times during his career. Williams is a big-play back. He also will run with some power, but is a home-run threat with the ball in his hands. Williams is a much more patient runner than earlier in his career and can help in the passing game. Fantasy Outlook: Williams is more of a mid to late-round pick this season. You can't expect him to get the playing time he did last year. But he proved he can be a fantasy force when starting, so he is worth grabbing come draft day. He is likely to get around 500 total yards and a few scores in a reserve role.
 #196  Vance McDonald (TE) Yr: 2015  TDs: 3  Yds: 326  Recpts: 30San FranciscoBye: 8 
 
Player News:
The trade of Vernon Davis vaulted McDonald into the starting lineup about halfway through last season. And McDonald did pretty well in a starting role, having 60-plus yards three of his last seven games. He also had at least three receptions four of those games. McDonald should get first crack at the starting job this season for the 49ers. McDonald can stretch the field with his speed and can make plays after the catch. He runs routes pretty well for a young player. McDonald isn't a great blocker, though, which could hold him back from grabbing that starter's job.

Fantasy Outlook:  
   The 49ers new offense could be a good fit for McDonald. He could make some big plays for the team in the passing game. Don't expect a monster year but he could be worth some spot starts along the way. He is capable of the big game. Expect around 50 receptions for 600 yards and four or five scores.

 #197  Larry Donnell (TE) Yr: 2015  TDs: 2  Yds: 223  Recpts: 29New York GiantsBye: 8 
 
Player News:
Donnell injured his neck and had his season end after Week 8. He wasn't producing big before the injury but getting his catches. He had 29 receptions but didn't top 40 yards in a game. He is going to get first shot to start for the Giants this season but nothing is guaranteed for him. Donnell doesn't have top speed for the position but runs good routes and has pretty good hands. He has a knack for getting open and moving the chains.

Fantasy Outlook:  
   Donnell doesn't have great value even if starting. He isn't much of a big-play threat and his numbers have never been off the charts. Look for around 55 receptions for 600 yards and five or so scores.

 #198  Virgil Green (TE) Yr: 2015  TDs: 1  Yds: 173  Recpts: 12DenverBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Green got sporadic work in a backup role for the Broncos last season, catching 12 passes for 173 yards and a score. He made some big plays with his chances, averaging 14.4 yards per reception. He could be setup for a bigger role this season because of departures at tight end for the Broncos. Green should get a chance to challenge for the starting job. Green has good size for the position but runs well and is capable of the big play. He hasn't made many plays since entering the league, though, and needs to start showing more consistency on the field to earn a starting job this year.

Fantasy Outlook:  
   Green could set career highs across the board but that doesn't mean he'll be a fantasy force. He is likely to be hit or miss in this offense even if he is starting. He could get around 40 receptions for 550 yards and a few scores. He could be worth some spot starts along the way for fantasy teams.

 #199  Jace Amaro (TE) New York JetsBye: 11 
 
Player News:
Amaro injured his shoulder before the start of last season and needed surgery, missing the entire season. He is expected to be ready for the coming year and should be given first shot to start. Amaro has played one full season since entering the league, catching 38 passes in 14 games. Amaro is a very good athlete that does well after the catch. He also has solid hands and pretty good speed. He isn't much of a blocker, though, and will need to continue to maximize his playing time.

Fantasy Outlook:  
  Amaro has some potential in an improving offense. The concern is the two top receivers he is going to compete with for targets. This is going to limit him some in this offense. He is worth a look as a No. 2, though. He could get around 50 receptions for 550 yards and five or so touchdowns.

 #200  Chris Thompson (RB) Yr: 2015  TDs: 0  Yds: 216  Rush: 35WashingtonBye: 9 
 
Player News:
Thompson had a good season as the top pass-catching back for the Redskins. He caught 35 passes and finished with 456 total yards and two touchdowns. He had four games with four or more receptions. Thompson should play a similar role with the Redskins this season. Thompson is a pretty ideal change-of-pace back. Thompson has speed and good moves in space. Thompson also catches the ball well and is a willing blocker. Fantasy Outlook: Thompson is an improving fantasy player, especially in PPR formats. He has a chance to improve some on last season, making him a good reserve pick for fantasy teams. He could get around 40 receptions and 500 total yards with a few scores.
