Arizona CardinalsLarry FitzgeraldMichael FloydJohn BrownJ.J. Nelson
Jaron Brown
Fitz is clearly still the guy here. The rest are good but right now at best WR3.
Atlanta FalconsJulio JonesMohamed SanuJustin HardyAldrick Robinson
Julio is on his own island here. Sanu and Hardy are better compliments than he has had in years, but still not good.
Baltimore RavensSteve SmithMike WallaceBreshad PerrimanKamar Aiken
Chris Matthews
Aiken, once thought to be the top option, has fallen to fourth on the depth chart. Wallace has surged to be a viable target.
Buffalo BillsRobert WoodsMarquise GoodwinGreg SalasSammy WatkinsSammy Watkins has been placed on the IR. I've left him in the other because he is eligible to return in Week 12. I'm not holding my breath though.
Carolina PanthersKelvin BenjaminDevin FunchessTed Ginn Jr.Philly BrownBenjamin, despite a poor Week 3 showing is still the cream of the crop here. Nobody else is useful.
Chicago BearsAlshon JefferyKevin WhiteEddie RoyalMarquess Wilson
Josh Bellamy
White missed all of his rookie year with a stress fracture. He has the WR1 upside, but will be behind Jeffery for targets for sure.
Cincinatti BengalsA.J. GreenTyler BoydBrandon LaFellJames WrightBoyd is inconsistent, but starting to look decent at times.
Cleveland BrownsTerrelle PryorCorey ColemanAndrew HawkinsColeman is still listed as No. 2 on the team depth chart since he is expected to return in 4-6 weeks.
Josh Gordon on the other hand is no longer with the team after entering rehab. We hope he gets better, but it is time to cut bait.
Dallas CowboysDez BryantCole BeasleyTerrance WilliamsBrice ButlerDak Prescott is turning out to be much better than i thought. Still Dez is struggling to be a true No. 1
Denver BroncosDemaryius ThomasEmmanuel SandersJordan NorwoodCody LatimerDT and Sanders are top notch receivers that are going to see their production drop significantly due to the quarterback situation.
Detroit LionsMarvin JonesGolden TateAnquan BoldinAndre RobertsI thought Jones might take over the No. 1 spot, but wow he is turning into a legit top-10 target.
Green Bay PackersJordy NelsonRandall CobbDevante AdamsJeff JanisJordy is looking better and better each week, and Cobb is disappointing.
Houston TexansDeAndre HopkinsWill FullerBraxton MillerJalen StrongHopkins hasn't quite lived up to expectations, but he is still good. Fuller is looking good for a rookie.
Indianapolis ColtsT.Y. HiltonPhillip DorsettQuan BrayDonte Moncrief
Andrew Luck returning will be a huge boost for them. Hilton is still the No. 1 option, but Moncrief is a definite sleeper option with his big play ability.
Jacksonville JaguarsAllen RobinsonAllen HurnsMarquise LeeRashad GreeneAllen Robinson and Allen Hurns were two of the best receivers for Fantasy last year. Some regression is expected, to go along with Bortles regression, but I would still be happy to have either one.
Kansas City ChiefsJeremy MaclinChris ConleyAlbert WilsonTyreek HillAs expected the only receiver you can trust is Maclin.
Los Angeles RamsTavon AustinKenny BrittBrian QuickPharoah CooperThe Rams offense is something you don't want much a part of. Austin is a flex play at best.
Miami DolphinsJarvis LandryKenny StillsDeVante ParkerLeonte CarrooStills has jumped Parker on the depth chart, but is still just a late round flyer.
Minnesota VikingsStefon DiggsCharles JohnsonAdam ThielenLaquon Treadwell
Chris Matthews
Diggs is becoming a true WR2 for fantasy. Everybody else you can ignore at this point.
New England PatriotsJulian EdelmanChris HoganDanny AmedolaMalcolm MitchellEdelman is the clear star of the show here, but he has a very exhaustive injury history. Still when he is in there he is really good, especially in PPR leagues. The rest of the cast is well… who knows. Tom Brady will likely make one of them somewhat valuable, but this team is still the Edelman and Gronk show.
New Orleans SaintsBrandon CooksWilie SneadMichael ThomasBrandon ColemanDrew Brees and the Saints pass the ball a lot… A LOT, that means any of their receivers are usually highly attractive on draft day. The problem is there are a lot of targets on this team, so honestly after Cooks I'm not going to be targeting any of them in my drafts except maybe rookie Michael Thomas who I could see becoming a red zone target for Brees.
New York GiantsOdell Beckham Jr.Sterling ShepardVictor CruzDwayne HarrisODB is a stud. Rookie Sterling Shepard should be good and after that its risky. Are we really going to trust that Cruz will be healthy? Harris was TD or bust last year.
New York JetsBrandon MarshallEric DeckerQuincy EnunwaDevin SmithBrandon Marshall and Eric Decker are great and now that Fitzpatrick is back I expect good things.
Oakland RaidersAmari CooperMichael CrabtreeSeth RobertsAndre HolmesAmari Cooper is a star in the making and don’t sleep on Crabtree either. He silently had a good season in 2015.
Philadelphia EaglesJordan MatthewsNelson AgholorDorial Green-BeckhamJosh Huff
Wentz is good, but Matthews is still the only one you want.
Pittsburgh SteelersAntonio BrownEli RogersSammy CoatesMarkus Wheaton
Darrius Heyward-Bey
Wheaton is dropping in my rankings as fast as he drops passes on the field.
San Diego ChargersTravis BenjaminTyrell WilliamsDontrelle InmanGriff WhalenLosing Keenan Allen hurts. Benjamin seems like he can get it done. Don't sleep on Williams.
San Francisco 49ersTorrey SmithJeremy KerleyQuinton PattonRod StreaterKerley is becoming a interesting option in PPR leagues.
Seattle SeahawksDoug BaldwinTyler LockettJermaine KearsePaul RichardsonThe Seahawks offense has not been great this year, but Baldwin has gotten it done.
Tampa Bay BuccaneersMike EvansAdam HumphriesVincent JacksonRussell ShepardEvans is obviously the guy and evans has finally been leaped on the Fantasy Football depth chart.
Tennessee TitansTajae SharpeRishard MatthewsAndre JohnsonKendall Wright
Harry Douglas
Sharpe is becoming more and more intriguing. Matthews is still a target after an overall good camp. I'm avoiding the rest.
Washington RedskinsDeSean JacksonPierre GarconJamison CrowderJosh DoctsonLots of weapons to spread the ball for Cousins. Clearly DJax is his favorite, but I'm very close to moving Crowder ahead of Garcon.
