Michael Crabtree WR OAK 28 5 WR - #28
FANTASY PROFILE / STATS & MORE

Crabtree developed into a nice weapon for San Francisco, although it took a few years. He battled foot problems, which took him off course to throughout his career. From 2010 to 2012, his reception total gradually increased from 55 to 72 t... Read More
Victor Cruz WR NYG 29 4 WR - #69
FANTASY PROFILE / STATS & MORE

Last season, the UMass alum (famous for his end zone tango) saw a dip in production as he only reached the end zone four times in 2013 after compiling 19 scores over the previous two seasons. The 27-year-old receiver is entering the secon... Read More
Larry Fitzgerald WR ARI 32 10 WR - #25
FANTASY PROFILE / STATS & MORE

Fitzgerald has had an excellent career. He has struggled a bit since Kurt Warner retired, but over his last four seasons he has scored: 240, 269, 175 and 237 points in PPR leagues, respectively. Michael Floyd is coming on strong as a secon... Read More
Michael Floyd WR ARI 26 2 WR - #27
FANTASY PROFILE / STATS & MORE

2014 BREAKOUT PLAYER: Floyd was picked by the FFToolbox Pros as the 2014 Fantasy Breakout Player. He should outperform the legend Larry Fitzgeral... Read More
Percy Harvin WR --- 27 5 Unranked
FANTASY PROFILE / STATS & MORE

Percy Harvin is electric. His speed is game-changing. He contributes in so many facets of the game: out of the backfield, the slot or lined up on the outside, kick returns, punt returns or put him in motion to create mismatches. If he can ... Read More
T.Y. Hilton WR IND 26 2 WR - #21
FANTASY PROFILE / STATS & MORE

T.Y. Hilton is not receiving nearly as much love as he should. Hilton evolved into a complete receiver in his second year. It helps that he has been able to work with Andrew Luck since Day 1, but Hilton displayed incredible maturity tak... Read More
DeSean Jackson WR WAS 29 6 WR - #35
FANTASY PROFILE / STATS & MORE

The DeSean Jackson Show joins Redskins nation after six drama-filled years with the Philadelphia Eagles. Week to week, Jackson has always been one of the more difficult players to handicap. In his first year in Chip Kelly's high-octane ... Read More
Vincent Jackson WR TB 33 9 WR - #46
FANTASY PROFILE / STATS & MORE

Jackson is Mr. Consistency. He went for over 1,000 yards in five of the last six seasons (he missed 11 games in 2010). As the Bucs' lone bright spot on offense last season, Jackson hauled in 78 catches for 1,228 yards and seven touchdowns... Read More
Andre Johnson WR --- 34 11 Unranked
FANTASY PROFILE / STATS & MORE

Even at 33 years old, nobody is questioning Andre Johnson's talents. The former third overall pick out of "Da U" is an all-time great and future Hall of Famer. That being said, it may be best to stay away from Johnson this year. ... Read More
Jeremy Maclin WR KC 28 5 WR - #20
FANTASY PROFILE / STATS & MORE

COMEBACK CANDIDATE: Maclin (26 years old) is returning from a torn ACL, which kept him out for the entire 2013 season. From 2010-2012, he averaged 67 catches for 893 yards (61 YPG) and will take over the Eagles' No. 1 wid... Read More
Jordy Nelson WR GB 30 6 WR - #8
FANTASY PROFILE / STATS & MORE

Those that targeted Jordy Nelson at a discount (missed four games in 2012) were rewarded with his career-best production. In his sixth NFL season, the 28-year-old finished as the 11th best fantasy WR in standard leagues, posting 85 catches... Read More
Cordarrelle Patterson WR MIN 25 1 Unranked
FANTASY PROFILE / STATS & MORE

POTENTIAL SUPER STAR: The Vikings traded back into the 1st round of the 2013 draft and selected the Tennessee alum at pick #29. The rookie did more than justify GM Rick Spielman's move as he came on strong in the 2nd half... Read More
Torrey Smith WR SF 27 3 WR - #60
FANTASY PROFILE / STATS & MORE

A second round pick from the 2011 NFL Draft (No. 58 overall) posted a career-best season in 2013, finishing with 65 catches for 1,128 yards and four touchdowns. That collective performance ranked him as the 21st-best fantasy WR in his fir... Read More
Wes Welker WR LAR 35 10 Unranked
FANTASY PROFILE / STATS & MORE

Wes Welker is all the things you want in a slot receiver: smart, shifty and has good hands. In the history of the game, few wide receivers have had the knack for finding a hole (sitting in it and gaining 10 yards) like Welker. Even thoug... Read More
Roddy White WR --- 34 9 Unranked
FANTASY PROFILE / STATS & MORE

White was about as tough as it gets last year. He missed two games on the season; a lesser man would have missed more time. Once he was at his healthiest, White averaged over eight catches and 100 yards in the last five games of the seas... Read More
Kendall Wright WR TEN 26 2 WR - #65
FANTASY PROFILE / STATS & MORE

Kendall Wright is a solid WR2 and a better WR3 pick. His 158 grabs over his first two seasons look good on paper, but (as a slot receiver) might not be what you are looking for. His low yards per reception and low TD totals make him a sli... Read More
