Hill is in the running to replace Mike Sims-Walker but he only had 11 catches last season in his first year in Jacksonville. Hill has always seemed more potential than production but he'll get a golden chance this year to become a starter.

Jones has teased Packer fans and fantasy owners alike with flashes of ability wrapped by bouts of inconsistency. The Green Bay front office liked him enough to re-sign him for another three years, with the expectation that he'll battle Jordy Nelson for the right to replace Donald Driver. Last year those three posted similar stats, and they appear slated for a similar fate--with Jermichael Finley returning to take a bite off the top first.

Morgan remains one of those mediocre starters with virtually no upside. He comes off a career best 698 yards and two scores last year when the 49ers were in dire need of receivers. That likely represents his ceiling and with a new offense to install, even that would be aggressive for this year.

The Panthers are going to run and if they throw, probably will connect with a tight end. No fantasy value for LaFell this year.

Hurd turned two career touchdowns and five nondescript seasons in Dallas into a free agent bid with the Bears. He'll battle Roy Williams, Johnny Knox, Earl Bennett and Devin Hester for looks; while the Mike Martz offense has made stars of fringe receivers before, Hurd doesn't appear to be heir to that legacy.

Dillard has been unable to stay healthy in his two seasons in the NFL but there is some optimism that he could put it together this year and actually matter. He'll battle the rookie Cecil Short for the #3 role in the offense. Dillard could even challenge for the #2 but so far he has not been on the field enough to spark much confidence.

Sanders showed flashes last year as a rookie, scoring in back-to-back midseason games and catching seven balls against the vaunted Jets secondary. He'll have to demonstrate he's recovered from the matching foot injuries he suffered during Pittsburgh's postseason run; if healthy he could be a sneaky fantasy contributor.

The Indiana product and fourth-round pick has good hands and a real opportunity with Derrick Mason, T.J. Houshmandzadeh, and Donte' Stallworth all wearing different uniforms. He should move into the Ravens' receiver rotation, but he'll battle Anquan Boldin and classmate Torrey Smith for Joe Flacco's attention.

Proj FA   15 240   1      

Crayton's first season in San Diego saw him injure his wrist and miss the final seven games. Crayton is an early favorite to assume the #2 spot vacated by Malcom Floyd but the confidence is low that he would keep it long if he even reaches the season as a starter. The Chargers brought in the rookie Vincent Brown in the hopes of developing him quickly into a starter.

Proj PIT   17 200   1      

The only reason why Darrius Heyward-Bey is not a posterchild for bust first round picks is thanks to JaMarcus Russell. His first two seasons have only resulted in a total of 35 catches and two touchdowns and it is not getting any better with Campbell as the QB. He is more likely to be demoted this year than to have any breakout.

Jerricho Cotchery - CAR YEAR TM GMS CAT CYD YPC CTD CAR RYD RTD

Avg   15 56 704 12.4 3 3 4 0
Proj CAR   17 200   1      

Cotchery has been cleared to practice after suffering from a back injury and his role should see an increase this year with Braylon Edwards gone. Santonio Holmes has taken over as the primary and likely only wideout here with direct fantasy value but the 29-year old Cotchery now has Plaxico Burress to compete against and that should land Cotchery back into the slot.

08-10-11 Update: Cotchery has signed for one year with the Steelers where he is unlikely to see the field. He adds just receiver depth for now.

Stuckey signed a two-year deal for $3.5 million but he is not expected to offer more than some wideout depth. He would have to surprise in training camp to get any appreciable role this season.

White supplies depth for a set of receivers that had injury problems last year. The undrafted rookie ended with five scores and 355 yards and supplies Manning with yet another option. He'll remain less than fantasy significant short of another round of injured starters.

Stallworth joins the Skins to make it his sixth NFL team over the last six seasons played. The problem for Stallworth is that he has been decent to good in the past but he has never been any better than what his QB can do for him. Playing in NO, PHI and NE were great and yet he did not stick. His stock in trade is the long ball and he should show up at least a few times this year but not nearly enough or consistently to consider for a fantasy start.

(-Risk) (+Upside) No one argues that Alexander does not have talent, the problem is that he doesn't have two healthy knees. After five surgeries, Alexander is an injury waiting to happen and he could not keep from missing games as a rookie because of swelling in his knee. He will have a few good games but he is too unreliable because of his health issues.

Smith comes to the Bills as a receiver/returner but he is not expected to be any better than the players already there. Smith is a special teams player and only occasional receiver.

Shorts has been impressive in camp for a small school receiver but at best he will challenge for the slot this season and remain outside of fantasy significance. Worth keeping an eye on for the future since the depth chart is open for movement in Jacksonville.

Avg   15 15 148 9.5 1 35 205 1
Proj FA   10 140   1      

Cribbs lost some of his fantasy value when the league changed the kickoff rules; curiously, the Browns' reaction was to suggest he'll be playing less receiver this year. Yeah, why would you want to get the ball to your most dynamic playmaker any more than necessary? Expect Cribbs to contend for slot duty and see some work in the wildcat, but ultimately be a slash usable only in best ball formats.

There is minimal upside to Ogletree since the slot is little used by the Cowboys and there is no certainty that he'll hang onto the #3 role by the end of training camp.

The Packers' second-round pick was a hot name this preseason--back when we thought Donald Driver might retire and James Jones might leave via free agency. But that didn't happen, meaning Cobb will have a tough time cracking Green Bay's receiver rotation this season. He'll contribute plenty in the return game and is solid insurance should one of the Packs' regular receivers go down with an injury, but his fantasy value in redraft leagues this year barely registers.

Obomanu signed a two year contract extension but he has 494 yards as a career best mark and with a healthy Mike Williams and the newly acquired Sidney Rice, chances are he's in line for less work this year. Figure in the change at QB and it is even less attractive to consider Obomanu as anything more than depth.

Ginn's attempt to revive his never thriving NFL career resulted in his worst season yet. As a 49er, he was limited to only 12 catches (of 35 passes) for 163 yards and one score. Ginn remains a first round bust that is just playing out his disappointing career.

Hankerson was the 3.15 pick of the Skins and the Miami product brings in much needed height (6'2") but he'll be raw to start and need to break through the morass of mediocre talent in Washington. Worth a casual watch in camp but unlikely to offer much fantasy value this year.
