2015 Fantasy Football Rankings - Wide Receivers (Sept. 10):
Top 10 | 11-20 | 21-40 | 41-60 | 61-100


  1. Dorial Green-Beckham, WR, Titans. Bye: 4.
    SEPT. 9 UPDATE: Ken Whisenhunt told the media that he's counting on Dorial Green-Beckham. As one of four receivers on the roster, the ultra-talented Green-Beckham will have some sort of role. He has immense upside.

    AUG. 6 UPDATE: Dorial Green-Beckham isn't expected to make much of an impact early on as a rookie, according to team reporter Jim Wyatt. Green-Beckham has struggled with drops in practice.

    Dorial Green-Beckham has top-five talent, but bottom-five mental capacity. Will he be able to learn Tennessee's offense and contribute? If so, he'll be a big producer with Marcus Mariota. If not, he may not even see the field very much.

    Projected 2015 Fantasy Stats: 37 catches. 560 yards. 5 total TDs.
    Projected 2015 Fantasy Points: 110.
    Projected 2015 PPR Fantasy Points: 147.

  2. Michael Crabtree, WR, Raiders. Bye: 6.
    AUG. 4 UPDATE: In a surprising turn of events, Michael Crabtree has been the recipient of multiple positive reviews during training camp. It's hard to really buy into Crabtree as a fantasy option because of the quarterbacking situation, but there's no denying that he'll be playing harder than ever for a big contract next spring.

    Michael Crabtree struggled mightily last season, catching just 68 passes for 698 yards and four touchdowns. The entire offense bogged down, however. Crabtree won't have much more success in Oakland's limited passing attack.

    Projected 2015 Fantasy Stats: 62 catches. 800 yards. 5 total TDs.
    Projected 2015 Fantasy Points: 110.
    Projected 2015 PPR Fantasy Points: 172.

  3. Cecil Shorts, WR, Texans. Bye: 9.
    JUNE 28 UPDATE: I mentioned yesterday that Jaelen Strong has not looked good at OTAs. The opposite can be said for Cecil Shorts. Charlie Campbell is reporting that Shorts has looked impressive in practice, and he appears to be locked in as the No. 2 wideout in Houston.

    King of garbage yardage, Cecil Shorts signed with the Texans and will be their second receiver until Jaelen Strong takes over that role. The Texans have a shaky quarterback situation, so it's hard to see Shorts as anything more than a WR4.

    Projected 2015 Fantasy Stats: 58 catches. 800 yards. 5 total TDs.
    Projected 2015 Fantasy Points: 110.
    Projected 2015 PPR Fantasy Points: 168.



  4. Brian Hartline, WR, Browns. Bye: 11.
    AUG. 14 UPDATE: Brian Hartline led the team in receiving during the preseason opener, catching three balls for 30 yards. It's hard to justify drafting him because he provides no upside, but he could end up being a half-decent WR5 in 12-man fantasy leagues. He's definitely worth rostering in leagues featuring 14-plus teams.

    Brian Hartline is somehow a No. 2 receiver in this league. Oh, the Browns.

    Projected 2015 Fantasy Stats: 63 catches. 840 yards. 4 total TDs.
    Projected 2015 Fantasy Points: 108.
    Projected 2015 PPR Fantasy Points: 171.

  5. Tyler Lockett, WR, Seahawks. Bye: 9.
    Jimmy Graham has been a big disappointment thus far, but Tyler Lockett has perhaps distracted everyone from that. The third-round rookie was very dynamic in the preseason, and it shouldn't surprise anyone if he's impactful on offense in his first year.

    Projected 2015 Fantasy Stats: 48 catches. 720 yards. 4 total TDs.
    Projected 2015 Fantasy Points: 106.
    Projected 2015 PPR Fantasy Points: 154.

  6. Albert Wilson, WR, Chiefs. Bye: 9.
    AUG. 5 UPDATE: According to Chiefs' offensive coordinator Doug Pederson, Albert Wilson has been on the "same page" with Alex Smith. Wilson thrived at the end of the season last year, so he could pick up where he left off. He's not much of a fantasy option with Smith under center, but he's worth considering in the late rounds.

    Albert Wilson had a strong finish to his rookie year, catching 12 balls for 209 yards in his final four games. The problem for him is that the Chiefs used a third-round pick on a receiver, so Wilson may not be able to hold on to his starting job.

    Projected 2015 Fantasy Stats: 54 catches. 720 yards. 4 total TDs.
    Projected 2015 Fantasy Points: 106.
    Projected 2015 PPR Fantasy Points: 160.

  7. Andrew Hawkins, WR, Browns. Bye: 11.
    Andrew Hawkins posted decent numbers until Josh Gordon returned to suspension, which was when Brian Hoyer began forcing passes to him. Gordon is gone, so Hawkins would be a candidate to reemerge as a decent fantasy backup if his quarterbacking situation wasn't so dire.

    Projected 2015 Fantasy Stats: 68 catches. 850 yards. 4 total TDs.
    Projected 2015 Fantasy Points: 109.
    Projected 2015 PPR Fantasy Points: 177.



  8. Robert Woods, WR, Bills. Bye: 8.
    Robert Woods had some big games in his second season, but was too inconsistent to rely upon. That won't be changing anytime soon, given the quarterback situation.

    Projected 2015 Fantasy Stats: 67 catches. 780 yards. 5 total TDs.
    Projected 2015 Fantasy Points: 108.
    Projected 2015 PPR Fantasy Points: 175.

  9. Cole Beasley, WR, Cowboys. Bye: 6.
    Cole Beasley had just 37 catches for 420 yards and four touchdowns, but most of that production came in the final third of the season. With DeMarco Murray gone, Beasley's reception total should rise because Tony Romo will have to throw more frequently.

    Projected 2015 Fantasy Stats: 64 catches. 730 yards. 5 total TDs.
    Projected 2015 Fantasy Points: 103.
    Projected 2015 PPR Fantasy Points: 167.

  10. Stedman Bailey, WR, Rams. Bye: 6.
    Stedman Bailey barely played prior to Week 11, yet he managed to finish with 30 catches for 435 yards and a touchdown. He had a couple of big games down the stretch, but he's not a good fantasy option unless Nick Foles plays up to expectations.

    Projected 2015 Fantasy Stats: 55 catches. 790 yards. 4 total TDs.
    Projected 2015 Fantasy Points: 103.
    Projected 2015 PPR Fantasy Points: 158.



  11. Danny Amendola, WR, Patriots. Bye: 4.
    The Patriots actually used Danny Amendola in the playoffs, which gives him a glimmer of hope in 2015. However, I don't think he's worth anything more than a late-round selection in a PPR league.

    Projected 2015 Fantasy Stats: 60 catches. 660 yards. 3 total TDs.
    Projected 2015 Fantasy Points: 100.
    Projected 2015 PPR Fantasy Points: 160.

  12. DeVante Parker, WR, Dolphins. Bye: 5.
    Ryan Tannehill loved throwing to Jarvis Landry last season, so how much will DeVante Parker be involved right away? I would avoid Parker in re-draft leagues, but he has decent upside in dynasty formats.

    Projected 2015 Fantasy Stats: 48 catches. 690 yards. 5 total TDs.
    Projected 2015 Fantasy Points: 99.
    Projected 2015 PPR Fantasy Points: 147.

  13. Malcom Floyd, WR, Chargers. Bye: 10.
    Malcom Floyd turns 34 in September. He's just bye-week fodder at this point in his career (though, was he ever anything more?)

    Projected 2015 Fantasy Stats: 47 catches. 730 yards. 4 total TDs.
    Projected 2015 Fantasy Points: 97.
    Projected 2015 PPR Fantasy Points: 144.



  14. Cody Latimer, WR, Broncos. Bye: 7.
    Cody Latimer caught just two passes as a rookie, but he'll have an expanded role because Julius Thomas and Wes Welker left the team.

    Projected 2015 Fantasy Stats: 45 catches. 670 yards. 5 total TDs.
    Projected 2015 Fantasy Points: 97.
    Projected 2015 PPR Fantasy Points: 142.

  15. Victor Cruz, WR, Giants. Bye: 11.
    SEPT. 9 UPDATE: Victor Cruz probably won't play until Week 4, according to ESPN Giants. So... why did he have a sixth-round ADP again? Cruz is likely won't play much this year, and I wouldn't draft him in any round of a 12-team league. He's been atop my Fantasy Football Busts list.

    SEPT. 8 UPDATE: Victor Cruz missed practice Monday with a calf injury. He'll continue to suffer through numerous leg injuries because he's not anywhere close to being recovered from his patellar tendon injury. Stay away.

  16. SEPT. 2 UPDATE: Randall Cobb will be able to play in Week 1, according to FOX Sports. Cobb suffered a scary shoulder injury in the third preseason game, but he appears to be fine.

    Victor Cruz didn't do much in the six games prior to getting knocked out for the year, catching 23 passes for 337 yards and one touchdown. Cruz, unfortunately, tore his patellar tendon, which does not bode well for his career going forward. Cruz may never reach his 2011 and 2012 levels again because that injury is extremely difficult to come back from. I don't think I'd even draft Cruz; let alone take him in the sixth round.

    Projected 2015 Fantasy Stats: 46 catches. 670 yards. 5 total TDs.
    Projected 2015 Fantasy Points: 97.
    Projected 2015 PPR Fantasy Points: 143.

  17. Jeff Janis, WR, Packers. Bye: 7.
    AUG. 25 UPDATE: Ty Montgomery is the favorite to be the third receiver in Green Bay, according to Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. According to Silverstein, Jeff Janis has been "too inconsistent."

    AUG. 23 UPDATE: Jeff Janis and Ty Montgomery are both worth late-round picks. One of them will be Green Bay's third receiver this year. It's not clear yet who that will be, but taking one of them in the final rounds could pay off.

    AUG. 10 UPDATE: Jeff Janis showed some promise at OTAs, but hasn't taken the "next step" in training camp, according to Packer Report. Janis was seen as a late-round sleeper earlier in the summer, but now he's just waiver-wire fodder.

    I'll be covering two players Chet featured on his Fantasy Football News page this week. The first is Jeff Janis, who has impressed enough to lock down Green Bay's No. 4 receiver spot. Janis will be on fantasy radars if one of the wideouts ahead of him gets injured, so he's someone to monitor.

    Projected 2015 Fantasy Stats: 30 catches. 520 yards. 3 total TD.
    Projected 2015 Fantasy Points: 95.
    Projected 2015 PPR Fantasy Points: 125.

  18. Kenny Britt, WR, Rams. Bye: 6.
    SEPT. 5 UPDATE: Kenny Britt sucks. He absolutely needs to be benched immediately. He didn't receive any targets, but he put forth one of the worst blocking efforts on a pass - officially ruled a run - to Austin. As a result, Austin was drilled for a 6-yard loss. Britt could've taken a nap on the middle of the field and tried harder than he did on that play. Britt has dogged it this entire preseason, and it's absolutely embarrassing that he hasn't been benched yet.

    AUG. 31 UPDATE: The Rams need to get Kenny Britt out of the lineup. He's always been injury-prone, but he was horribly inefficient against the Colts. He caught two of his three targets for 21 yards, but made two mistakes in the process. He did a bad job of trying to get the first down, coming up a yard shy of the marker when he could've fought to move the chains. He also failed to finish a route in the second quarter, which resulted in an incompletion. Britt is a bum who should be avoided in all fantasy leagues despite his status as a starting NFL receiver.

    Kenny Britt had some nice games in his first season with the Rams, but he'll need Nick Foles to come through to be fantasy-relevant. St. Louis has a run-heavy offense, so there's not much to see here.

    Projected 2015 Fantasy Stats: 46 catches. 680 yards. 4 total TDs.
    Projected 2015 Fantasy Points: 92.
    Projected 2015 PPR Fantasy Points: 138.

  19. Aaron Dobson, WR, Patriots. Bye: 4.
    AUG. 29 UPDATE: Aaron Dobson had a very disappointing performance at Carolina. He saw two targets go his way from Tom Brady, and the passes were intercepted on both occasions. One was especially Dobson's fault, as he allowed Charles Tillman to rip the ball out of his hands.

    AUG. 1 UPDATE: Bill Belichick praised Aaron Dobson on Friday, telling the media that his young receiver reported to training camp in terrific shape. Dobson was hurt last year and spent some time in Belichick's doghouse. It looks like he's ready to turn things around.

    Aaron Dobson played in just four games this past season because of a hamstring injury. There's some buy-low potential here, but only some.

    Projected 2015 Fantasy Stats: 42 catches. 650 yards. 4 total TDs.
    Projected 2015 Fantasy Points: 89.
    Projected 2015 PPR Fantasy Points: 131.

  20. Devin Smith, WR, Jets. Bye: 5.
    Devin Smith is a blazing-fast receiver, but who's going to throw the football to him? The Jets have a chance to land a quarterback next year - see the 2016 NFL Mock Draft - but there's no guarantee. Smith won't do much as a rookie and will struggle to produce until New York finds a franchise signal-caller.

    Projected 2015 Fantasy Stats: 32 catches. 560 yards. 3 total TDs.
    Projected 2015 Fantasy Points: 89.
    Projected 2015 PPR Fantasy Points: 121.

  21. Jermaine Kearse, WR, Seahawks. Bye: 9.
    Jermaine Kearse caught 38 passes in 2014. He's currently listed as the starter, but he shouldn't be on normal fantasy rosters.

    Projected 2015 Fantasy Stats: 48 catches. 640 yards. 4 total TDs.
    Projected 2015 Fantasy Points: 88.
    Projected 2015 PPR Fantasy Points: 136.

  22. Rod Streater, WR, Raiders. Bye: 6.
    Rod Streater played in just three games last year because of a foot injury. He has no relevance in fantasy.

    Projected 2015 Fantasy Stats: 40 catches. 620 total yards. 4 total TDs.
    Projected 2015 Fantasy Points: 86.
    Projected 2015 PPR Fantasy Points: 126.

  23. Jaelen Strong, WR, Texans. Bye: 9.
    JUNE 27 UPDATE: JUNE 27 UPDATE: I published a positive report on Arian Foster recently. Well, here's another. Per Charlie Campbell's sources, Foster has enjoyed a fantastic offseason and seems primed for a big season. Of course, this could all change quickly because Foster has been so injury-prone over the years, but things sound good at the moment.

    Jaelen Strong was a third-round selection, but could manage to start right away as a rookie. Strong had late-first-round talent and won't have to leap many skilled receivers to see playing time. Unfortunately, the Texans don't have a talented quarterback, so Strong's numbers won't be maximized, even if he starts.

    Projected 2015 Fantasy Stats: 34 catches. 520 yards. 3 total TD.
    Projected 2015 Fantasy Points: 85.
    Projected 2015 PPR Fantasy Points: 119.

  24. Greg Jennings, WR, Dolphins. Bye: 5.
    The DeVante Parker pick crushed any fantasy potential Greg Jennings had in Miami - and there wasn't much there to begin with.

    Projected 2015 Fantasy Stats: 42 catches. 620 yards. 3 total TDs.
    Projected 2015 Fantasy Points: 80.
    Projected 2015 PPR Fantasy Points: 122.

  25. Andre Holmes, WR, Raiders. Bye: 6.
    Andre Holmes was awesome down the stretch of the 2013 season, but he proved to be a big disappointment this past year, finishing with just 47 receptions for 693 yards. He has good play-making ability, but with Derek Carr poised to have a sophomore slump, it's tough to buy low on him.

    Projected 2015 Fantasy Stats: 41 catches. 590 yards. 3 total TDs.
    Projected 2015 Fantasy Points: 77.
    Projected 2015 PPR Fantasy Points: 118.

  26. Philly Brown, WR, Panthers. Bye: 5.
    AUG. 29 UPDATE: Philly Brown needs to be discussed. Brown was so absolutely dreadful against the Patriots that he was trending on Twitter. Brown committed two drops out of his five targets. One should've been a touchdown, while another could have been a routine 5-yard completion. Brown also had poor timing with Newton, as the two barely connected (one catch, five yards). I thought there was a chance that Brown could be a sleeper in the wake of Kelvin Benjamin's season-ending injury, but I don't think he can be touched in 12-team leagues at this point.

    AUG. 23 UPDATE: The Panthers' Web site recently published an article discussing how much Philly Brown has improved his route running. With Kelvin Benjamin hurt and Devin Funchess inexperienced (and banged up as well), there's a big opportunity for Brown this year.

    AUG. 20 UPDATE: Philly Brown could be the player to benefit most from Kelvin Benjamin's season-ending injury. A rookie himself last year, Brown flashed toward the end of the 2014 campaign, so he could be a sneaky sleeper late in fantasy drafts.

    Philly Brown had some nice moments down the stretch, but he caught more than three passes in a game only once. He's a No. 4 option in a run-heavy attack.

    Projected 2015 Fantasy Stats: 44 catches. 580 yards. 3 total TDs.
    Projected 2015 Fantasy Points: 76.
    Projected 2015 PPR Fantasy Points: 120.

  27. Harry Douglas, WR, Titans. Bye: 4.
    Harry Douglas eclipsed 1,000 yards in 2013, but he'll struggle to do that with a rookie quarterback who figures to run around a lot. Douglas doesn't have much fantasy value.

    Projected 2015 Fantasy Stats: 57 catches. 630 yards. 2 total TDs.
    Projected 2015 Fantasy Points: 75.
    Projected 2015 PPR Fantasy Points: 132.

  28. Brandon LaFell, WR, Patriots. Bye: 4.
    AUG. 28 UPDATE: It's sounding like Brandon LaFell could open the season on the PUP list because of a foot injury. Avoid him in your fantasy leagues.

    Brandon LaFell was Tom Brady's only downfield threat in 2014, so he was pretty effective as a fantasy producer. His 2015 status is a bit shaky because Brady turns 38 in August and won't be around the first four games.

    Projected 2015 Fantasy Stats: 28 catches. 420 yards. 3 total TDs.
    Projected 2015 Fantasy Points: 75.
    Projected 2015 PPR Fantasy Points: 103.

  29. Donte Moncrief, WR, Colts. Bye: 10.
    Donte Moncrief had some potential to break out in 2015, but that flew out the window when Indianapolis signed Andre Johnson and drafted Phillip Dorsett.

    Projected 2015 Fantasy Stats: 35 catches. 550 yards. 3 total TDs.
    Projected 2015 Fantasy Points: 73.
    Projected 2015 PPR Fantasy Points: 108.

  30. Mohamed Sanu, WR, Bengals. Bye: 7.
    Mohamed Sanu had a golden opportunity last year when A.J. Green, Marvin Jones, Jermaine Gresham and Tyler Eifert were all injured at various stages. Sanu didn't take advantage of it, however, compiling just 790 yards and five touchdowns. He sucks, so ignore him.

    Projected 2015 Fantasy Stats: 40 catches. 550 receiving yards. 3 total TDs.
    Projected 2015 Fantasy Points: 73.
    Projected 2015 PPR Fantasy Points: 113.

  31. Marlon Brown, WR, Ravens. Bye: 9.
    Marlon Brown will see an increase in production if Torrey Smith leaves via free agency. He's probably not worth rostering in any format, regardless.

    Projected 2015 Fantasy Stats: 42 catches. 490 yards. 4 total TDs.
    Projected 2015 Fantasy Points: 73.
    Projected 2015 PPR Fantasy Points: 115.

  32. Riley Cooper, WR, Eagles. Bye: 8.
    Riley Cooper was a predictable bust this past season, as he was one of the worst starting receivers in the NFL. Cooper shouldn't be drafted in any format.

    Projected 2015 Fantasy Stats: 45 catches. 550 yards. 3 total TDs.
    Projected 2015 Fantasy Points: 73.
    Projected 2015 PPR Fantasy Points: 118.

  33. Louis Murphy, WR, Buccaneers. Bye: 6.
    Louis Murphy had his moments this past season, but wasn't a reliable fantasy option. He'll need either Vincent Jackson or Mike Evans to go down for that to happen.

    Projected 2015 Fantasy Stats: 44 catches. 540 yards. 3 total TDs.
    Projected 2015 Fantasy Points: 72.
    Projected 2015 PPR Fantasy Points: 116.

  34. Tavon Austin, WR, Rams. Bye: 6.
    Tavon Austin has been a major bust thus far, and there hasn't been any indication that he'll turn things around.

    Projected 2015 Fantasy Stats: 36 catches. 500 yards. 3 total TDs.
    Projected 2015 Fantasy Points: 68.
    Projected 2015 PPR Fantasy Points: 104.

  35. Andre Roberts, WR, Redskins. Bye: 8.
    Andre Roberts will continue to be Washington's slot receiver. He has no fantasy relevance.

    Projected 2015 Fantasy Stats: 44 catches. 520 yards. 2 total TDs.
    Projected 2015 Fantasy Points: 64.
    Projected 2015 PPR Fantasy Points: 108.

  36. Chris Conley, WR, Chiefs. Bye: 9.
    Chris Conley is a raw, but athletic receiver, who couldn't be counted on under normal circumstances. However, Kansas City's depth chart at receiver is so thin that he might have a chance at starting as a rookie. Thus, his short-term outlook is actually brighter than his dynasty prospects.

    Projected 2015 Fantasy Stats: 33 catches. 510 yards. 2 total TDs.
    Projected 2015 Fantasy Points: 63.
    Projected 2015 PPR Fantasy Points: 96.

  37. Sammie Coates, WR, Steelers. Bye: 11.
    Sammie Coates had first-round potential, but fell to the third frame because of his inconsistent hands. He could become Pittsburgh's No. 3 wideout as a rookie.

    Projected 2015 Fantasy Stats: 34 catches. 490 yards. 2 total TDs.
    Projected 2015 Fantasy Points: 61.
    Projected 2015 PPR Fantasy Points: 95.

  38. Marqise Lee, WR, Jaguars. Bye: 8.
    AUG. 21 UPDATE: Marqise Lee is expected to miss two more weeks with a hamstring injury. Lee has been a huge disappointment this offseason, and he's completely off the radar as a consequence.

    AUG. 5 UPDATE: Marqise Lee is now practicing with the second team, behind Allen Hurns. Lee has struggled in training camp thus far and needs a strong preseason to reenter the starting lineup.

    JUNE 30 UPDATE: Marqise Lee's offseason isn't going so well. He's reportedly behind Allen Hurns on the depth chart, meaning he's Jacksonville's fourth wideout right now. Unless things change, Lee shouldn't be drafted in any format.

    Marqise Lee got off to a nice start with a 6-62 line against the Eagles, but he eclipsed that yardage total just three more times during his rookie campaign. Blake Bortles will be better next year, and Cecil Shorts is gone, but it's hard to love Lee over Allen Robinson or maybe even Allen Hurns.

    Projected 2015 Fantasy Stats: 28 catches. 400 yards. 2 total TDs.
    Projected 2015 Fantasy Points: 57.
    Projected 2015 PPR Fantasy Points: 85.

  39. Justin Hunter, WR, Titans. Bye: 4.
    JULY 21 UPDATE: Justin Hunter was arrested this weekend for assault. Hunter was having a shaky offseason to begin with. This could prompt the Titans to release him. He's not even on the radar in 20-team leagues.

    It's disappointing that Justin Hunter hasn't been able to develop into a viable fantasy option yet. Hunter regularly led the Titans in targets, but he finished the year with just 28 catches for 498 yards and three touchdowns. Horrible quarterbacking didn't help, but Hunter has not lived up to his physical ability. Maybe Marcus Mariota will help.

    Projected 2015 Fantasy Stats: 22 catches. 340 yards. 2 total TDs.
    Projected 2015 Fantasy Points: 56.
    Projected 2015 PPR Fantasy Points: 78.

  40. Dwayne Bowe, WR, Browns. Bye: 11.
    SEPT. 4 UPDATE: Dwayne Bowe, per Solomon Wilcots of the team's telecast, is on the roster bubble. Bowe may have been considered in 16-team leagues before this report, but not now. He's undraftable in all formats until he officially makes the team.

    No Kansas City receiver scored a touchdown last year, which obviously means that Dwayne Bowe failed to find the end zone. Bowe has been a disappointment the past three seasons, accumulating 801, 673 and 754 yards in the three campaigns. He won't fare well in Cleveland, as he'll be paired with an even worse quarterback.

    Projected 2015 Fantasy Stats: 34 catches. 390 yards. 2 total TDs.
    Projected 2015 Fantasy Points: 51.
    Projected 2015 PPR Fantasy Points: 85.

  41. Paul Richardson, WR, Seahawks. Bye: 4.
    Paul Richardson is explosive and happens to be only 23 years old, but he tore his ACL in the NFC Championship, so he may not be ready for the start of the season.

    Projected 2015 Fantasy Stats: 32 catches. 380 yards. 2 total TDs.
    Projected 2015 Fantasy Points: 50.
    Projected 2015 PPR Fantasy Points: 82.

  42. Chris Hogan, WR, Bills. Bye: 8.
    Chris Hogan is just an ordinary slot receiver. Not much to see here from a fantasy perspective.

    Projected 2015 Fantasy Stats: 23 catches. 300 yards. 1 total TD.
    Projected 2015 Fantasy Points: 36.
    Projected 2015 PPR Fantasy Points: 59.

  43. Cordarrelle Patterson, WR, Vikings. Bye: 5.
    Cordarrelle Patterson was perhaps the most disappointing player in fantasy this past season, save for Montee Ball. Patterson was barely on the field by the end of the season. He's not draftable right now.

    Projected 2015 Fantasy Stats: 20 catches. 260 yards. 1 total TD.
    Projected 2015 Fantasy Points: 32.
    Projected 2015 PPR Fantasy Points: 52.

  44. Nick Toon, WR, Saints. Bye: 11.
    AUG. 21 UPDATE: Nick Toon had some hype earlier in the offseason, but he has since slipped to sixth on the wide receiver depth chart. He's now no longer a late-round flier.

    Marques Colston has failed to eclipse the 1,000-yard barrier for two straight seasons. There's always a chance he'll rebound, but all of Colston's injuries apparently have taken a toll on him. Colston, 32 in June, probably won't be the same again. He'll be a fantasy option with Drew Brees, but he shouldn't be drafted as a starter.

    Projected 2015 Fantasy Stats: 14 catches. 240 yards. 0 total TDs.
    Projected 2015 Fantasy Points: 24.
    Projected 2015 PPR Fantasy Points: 38.

  45. Wes Welker, WR, TBA. Bye: 0.
    Wes Welker has been cleared to play by doctors, but that doesn't mean that anyone will sign him.

    Projected 2015 Fantasy Stats: 15 catches. 130 yards. 1 total TD.
    Projected 2015 Fantasy Points: 19.
    Projected 2015 PPR Fantasy Points: 34.

  46. Jordy Nelson, WR, Packers. Bye: 7.
    AUG. 23 UPDATE: This game is still going on, but I thought I'd list Jordy Nelson for his torn ACL diagnosis. That's what's being reported right now. My condolences if you've drafted him already. Pick up either Jeff Janis or Ty Montgomery as fliers if you had Nelson.

    James Jones' absence and Aaron Rodgers' health did wonders for Jordy Nelson's fantasy numbers. Nelson caught a career-high 98 passes for 1,519 yards and 13 touchdowns in 2014. As long as Rodgers isn't injured, Nelson could post similar figures this upcoming season.

    Projected 2015 Fantasy Stats: 0 catches. 0 yards. 0 total TDs.
    Projected 2015 Fantasy Points: 0.
    Projected 2015 PPR Fantasy Points: 0.

  47. Kevin White, WR, Bears. Bye: 7.
    AUG. 16 UPDATE: Kevin White will have shin surgery and will be placed on the PUP list. There's a chance he could miss the entire year as well. It goes without saying that he is now undraftable.

    AUG. 11 UPDATE: There is speculation that Kevin White could miss the entire preseason with shin splints. Given how John Fox hates using rookies, White is barely draftable at this point.

    AUG. 2 UPDATE: Kevin White has been placed on the active/PUP list. While White could return for the season opener, he's losing valuable practice time right now. This is especially significant, given how reluctant John Fox is when it comes to trusting rookies.

    JUNE 18 UPDATE: Kevin White reportedly isn't even competing for the starting job across from Alshon Jeffery right now; he's actually battling to be the No. 4 receiver. While White could eventually break into the starting lineup later this year, it's a bad sign that he isn't even challenging Marquess Wilson right now.

    Kevin White is an athletic 6-3, 210-pound receiver. He figures to start right away for the Bears, taking Brandon Marshall's place. White's outlook would be brighter if A) Jay Cutler cared and B) The offensive line was able to give Cutler ample time.

    Projected 2015 Fantasy Stats: 0 catches. 0 yards. 0 total TDs.

  48. Kelvin Benjamin, WR, Panthers. Bye: 5.
    AUG. 20 UPDATE: Kelvin Benjamin is out for the year with a torn ACL.

    AUG. 15 UPDATE: There were some negative reports about Kelvin Benjamin and his conditioning this offseason, but the 2014 first-round receiver looked in perfect shape in his preseason debut. He slipped and caused an incompletion on the first drive, but was dominant afterward. He finished with three catches for 36 yards and a touchdown, and he also drew a deep pass interference flag on Buffalo's top cornerback.

    JULY 25 UPDATE: I had previously given Kelvin Benjamin a couple of stock-down grades this summer because he's been overweight. However, a recent report indicates that Benjamin is now down to his playing weight. There's still some concern with him, but I'd feel much better picking him now.

    JUNE 18 UPDATE: Kelvin Benjamin reported to OTAs about 10 pounds overweight. His poor conditioning could be the reason why he's dealing with poor hamstrings. Benjamin slacking off reminds me of Keenan Allen's sophomore campaign; Allen coasted after his rookie season and consequently struggled in 2014. Benjamin could suffer a similar dropoff in production.

    JUNE 16 UPDATE: Kelvin Benjamin has been dealing with a hamstring issue for more than a month now, and it doesn't appear as though he'll be healthy anytime soon. Benjamin could easily take the field during the preseason, but soft-tissue injuries tend to linger. This is something to watch out for.

    So much for being raw. Many thought Kevin Benjamin wasn't ready for the NFL, but he proved everyone wrong. He had his share of drops, but was very productive for the most part, catching 73 passes for 1,008 yards and nine touchdowns. The sky's the limit for Benjamin, who should be even better next year as long as A) Cam Newton stays healthy, and B) Devin Funchess doesn't prove to be worthless.

    Projected 2015 Fantasy Stats: 0 catches. 0 receiving yards. 0 total TDs.
    Projected 2015 Fantasy Points: 0.
    Projected 2015 PPR Fantasy Points: 0.

  49. Justin Blackmon, WR, Jaguars. Bye: 8.
    Earlier in the offseason, there was some optimism that Justin Blackmon had gotten his life together and was set to have a rebound 2015 campaign. That's no longer the case.

    Projected 2015 Fantasy Stats: 0 catches. 0 yards. 0 total TDs.
    Projected 2015 Fantasy Points: 0.
    Projected 2015 PPR Fantasy Points: 0.

  50. Josh Gordon, WR, Browns. Bye: 11.
    Suspended again, this time for the entire season. What an idiot.

    Projected 2015 Fantasy Stats: 0 catches. 0 yards. 0 total TDs.
    Projected 2015 Fantasy Points: 0.
    Projected 2015 PPR Fantasy Points: 0.
