1WRThomas,DemaryiusDENIND0000000000695110000021
Although Eric Decker will be missed in this offense, Demaryius is poised to benefit from an increase in targets downfield. Vontae Davis, Greg Toler and Darius Butler are decent enough, but have another thing coming if they intend to shut Denver's primary receiving weapon down in Denver's home opener. 
2WRMarshall,BrandonCHIBUF0000000000788110000021
The Bills will not be able to cover both he and Alshon Jeffery, look for a strong week to open up the season. 
Tier Break
3WRGreen,A.J.CINBAL0100000000683110000020
Green is the reason Dalton got paid, it\'s usually the qb that makes the receiver, but there are exceptions to every rule. 
4TEGraham,JimmyNOSATL0000000000683110000020
Drew Brees' favorite target is a must-play. Graham has scored in three of his last four games against the Falcons. 
Tier Break
5TEGronkowski,RobNEPMIA0000000000580110000019
Current reports have Gronkowski returning to action week 1. As always check his injury status for week 1 prior to starting. 
6WRBryant,DezDALSFO0000000000679110000019
The 49ers secondary is no joke but Dez is second to only Calvin Johnson in dominance. He\'ll get his week in and week out, starting on opening day. If Dallas falls behind early, Bryant could finish the week as the number 1 WR. 
Tier Break
7RBPeterson,AdrianMINSTL2210711000000320000000018
One of the best at his position, even battling through an eight man front he will excel this week. 
8RBCharles,JamaalKCCTEN199711000000431000000018
More often than one might think, games are won or lost depending on whether Jamaal Charles is featured in your lineup or that of your opponent. For all the nuance inherent to fantasy football, sometimes the reality is as simple as that. This foot injury appears to be minor. don't over-think it as you prepare for Week 1 
Tier Break
9RBMcCoy,LeSeanPHIJAC178111000000430000000017
 
10RBForte,MattCHIBUF188011000000430000000017
The Bears balanced attack will translate into plenty of running room for Forte. Cutler will also have him involved in the passing game, fortifying him as one of the top fantasy producers. 
Tier Break
11WRWelker,WesDENIND0000000000552110000016
Check back closer to gametime, as his injury status (concussion) is currently up in the air. If he does play, Welker is a safe WR2 play in PPR formats. 
12TEDavis,VernonSFODAL0000000000454110000015
All positives coming out of camp for him this year. Reportedly looks fast and in shape despite his early holdout threats. He\'ll provide matchup problems as he always has and now has an offense willing to throw the ball downfield more often. 
13RBBall,MonteeDENIND177911000000425000000015
Although its personnel was bolstered with the signing of D'Qwell Jackson in the offseason, the Colts run defense remains vulnerable. With a healthier O-line blocking for him and Knowshon Moreno having moved on, Montee is up for the task. Don't be surprised when this team executes more balance offensively. 
14TEPitta,DennisBALCIN0000000000549110000015
The Bengals don\'t have the greatest coverage options vs right ends, so Pitta could be in for a big week one, 
15RBLynch,MarshawnSEAGBP188211000000214000000015
There were plenty of off field distractions that pushed Lynch down draft boards. He\'ll still be running hard and producing now that it counts. His carries may drop a bit to keep him fresh for the whole season but he\'s one of the few workhorses left so you start him regardless. 
16RBGore,FrankSFODAL218511000000213000000015
Despite his age and workload, Gore remains a solid play on a weekly basis based upon Santa Clara\'s committment to the run. It\'s a similar situation to Seattle and Marshawn Lynch. He\'ll receive a few less carries but is still the goal line back making him a very reliable RB2. 
Tier Break
17WRJohnson,CalvinDETNYG0000000000591000000014
Double and even triple coverage will not slow him down. 
18RBGerhart,TobyJACPHI167511000000217000000014
Jacksonville's new three-down workhorse running back draws a challenging matchup against an improving Philadelphia defense that allowed 84.8 rushing yards and 0.7 rushing touchdowns per game last season. Since the Jaguars likely will fall behind and have to throwing heavily in catch-up mode, Gerhart won't have a big rushing day, but he should catch some passes. Gerhart is a weak play as a No. 2 fantasy running back. 
19WRBrown,AntonioPITCLE1100000000684000000014
Look for the Steelers to try to shift Brown to Justin Gilbert\'s side early and often, rookie exploitation to the n\'th degree. 
20RBMurray,DeMarcoDALSFO146711000000323000000014
With Navarro Bowman out for the first six week and Aldon Smith suspended, the San Fran defense is not as prolific as they were last season. Romo is back from surgery but the offense will likely lean on Murray more in the beginning of the year to keep Romo from getting reinjured. Murray could see a ton of touches in week one. 
21RBJackson,FredBUFCHI156411000000323000000014
Jackson won\'t see as many carries as Spiller but he will see action in the passing game. He is also projected to be the goal line running back. 
22WRJohnson,AndreHOUWAS0000000000686000000014
The 33-year-old Johnson is fully recovered from the hamstring injury that slowed him earlier in the preseason. Heading into Week 1, the biggest worry about AJ is the guy throwing him the ball - the inconsistent Ryan Fitzpatrick. Consider Johnson a decent play as a No. 2 fantasy receiver against a Washington defense that ranked close to average in fantasy points allowed to opposing wide outs in 2013. 
23RBBell,Le'VeonPITCLE186511000000326000000014
Bell looks slimmer and is moving better. You drafted him to start him and there is no reason to bench him given the opponent. 
24RBStacy,ZacSTLMIN197711000000314000000014
He finished strong last year (except at Seattle) and is expected to be the workhorse. There will be added pressure as teams load the box challenging the passing game to beat them. 
25RBFoster,ArianHOUWAS176911000000320000000014
Nursing a lingering case of 'anti-awesomeness,' Foster (hamstring) sat out Houston's first three preseason contests, but the team insists he'll be ready to go in Week 1. Assuming Foster is a full-go, he would be a strong play versus a Washington defense that surrendered the seventh-most fantasy points to opposing running backs last season. Double check Foster's playing status before you insert him into your starting lineup. 
26RBLacy,EddieGBPSEA207811000000318000000014
The running will be very tough this week, but with little competition at the position, Lacy will get the bulk of the work for Green Bay. 
27WRCruz,VictorNYGDET0100000000687000000014
Cruz could see close to ten targets in week one as the Giants are sure to fall behind early. The question is how many of those targets are even possible to be caught? Eli will be looking for his security blanket a ton in 2014. 
Tier Break
28WRJeffery,AlshonCHIBUF1400000000581000000013
With Brandon Marshall on the opposite side of the field, Jeffery will have room to roam in the Buffalo secondary. 
29WRWayne,ReggieINDDEN0000000000675000000013
By all accounts the 35-year-old Wayne has looked good coming off ACL surgery, and he is expected to resume his role as Andrew Luck's favorite target. Start Wayne as a No. 3 fantasy receiver versus a Denver defense that gave up the ninth-most fantasy points to enemy wide outs in 2013. 
30WRGarcon,PierreWASHOU0100000000670000000013
As long as the formula of feed Garcon the ball doesn\'t change under the new offensive coordinator, Garcon should see the majority of RGIII\'s passes. He should exploit the Houston defense that is far weaker in the secondary then they are up front. 
31RBMorris,AlfredWASHOU17791100000015000000013
He\'ll see as many carries as he can handle but the Houston front will be on him like stink on, well, you know what. What will be more telling is if the new offensive coordinator leaves Morris in on passing downs or pulls him for Helu. 
32RBBush,ReggieDETNYG104500000001655101000013
A split back situation is in the cards this year as it will likely be Joique Bell getting the call, especially at the goal line. Bush's value will be in the passing game, a bonus for those PPR leagues. 
33WRJones,JulioATLNOS0100000000678000000013
Jones is a must-start. His surgically repaired right foot passed all preseason tests with flying colors. The fourth-year pro looked like his explosive self when he hit pay dirt on 52-yard catch-and-run during the Falcons' third preseason game. 
Tier Break
34WRWright,KendallTENKCC0000000000666000000012
Tennessee's top receiving option - he caught 94 balls last season - is starting to look like a shaky No. 3 fantasy wide out, because the team looked committed to a spread-the-wealth passing attack during the preseason. In addition, Wright hasn't been a huge scorer during his first two years in the NFL. Consider him a weak play versus a solid Kansas City defense. 
35WRSmith,TorreyBALCIN0000000000572000000012
If Pierce is out then smith could be in for a big week, a lot of targets to go around, 
36WRFitzgerald,LarryARISDC0100000000669000000012
With realistic expectations he\'ll be a solid performer. He hasn\'t topped 90 receptions since 2010 but is still a great red zone threat. Double digit touchdowns are certainly a possibility again but that\'s probably best case scenario. 
37WRDecker,EricNYJOAK0000000000573000000012
 
38WRMaclin,JeremyPHIJAC0000000000573000000012
Start him while you got him. As Sam Bradford showed, an injury prone player with such an significant injury may not be around very long. He\'s a great start against a porous pass defense. 
39WRCrabtree,MichaelSFODAL0100000000573000000012
Don\'t let the single catch so far be a deterrent. He\'s the real deal and Kaepernick is a different quarterback with him on the field. He\'s finally healthy and will put up the numbers people have been expecting. 
40WRNelson,JordyGBPSEA0100000000570000000012
 
41RBBell,JoiqueDETNYG155911000000113000000012
He is the primary reason for the reduced role for Reggie Bush. Bell will see the action on the ground, especially goal line scoring chances. 
42WRJones,JamesOAKNYJ0000000000571000000012
A notable free agent signing for this team, Jones has benefited from a concerted effort by to get him the ball. Oakland's passing attack by & large has a ways to go, and it remains to be seen whether Jones can handle the extra defensive attention that accompanies WR1 duties. 
43WRFloyd,MichaelARISDC0000000000576000000012
Both Floyd and Fitzgerald have ADP\'s in the 4th round. Floyd\'s upside is mucher higher and he should be the more desired player. He\'s entering the magical third season and another 1,000 yard year looks quite attainable. 
44WRPatterson,CordarrelleMINSTL1400000000572000000012
Both quarterbacks have looked his way early and often in the preseason, worth a look as a starter in deep leagues. 
Tier Break
45WRColston,MarquesNOSATL0000000000564000000011
Colston is commonly regarded as the Saints' most consistent wide receiver, and he will enter the 2014 season without any of the nagging foot injuries that have plagued him in the past few years. Start Colston as a No. 3 fantasy wide out versus an Atlanta defense that ranked close to average in fantasy points surrendered to enemy receivers last season. 
46WRWallace,MikeMIANEP0100000000561000000011
Wallace has been spending extra time working with Tannehill. He will be a boom or bust play week 1 against New England's revamped secondary. 
47RBRidley,StevanNEPMIA13531100000015000000011
Vereen and and White are also in the mix for carries out of New England's backfield. Vereen is on a short lease as he continues to struggle with ball control issues. 
48WRHilton,T.Y.INDDEN0000000000566000000011
Although Hilton is Indianapolis' only true big-play threat in the passing game, he likely will lose targets with a healthy Reggie Wayne back in the fold and with Hakeem Nicks stealing looks when the team uses three-receiver sets. However, Hilton still looks like a decent play as a No. 3 fantasy receiver with upside against a Broncos defense that ceded the ninth-most fantasy points to the receiver position last year. 
49WRBenjamin,KelvinCARTBB0100000000565000000011
The rookie first-rounder has claimed a spot in the starting lineup thanks to an impressive preseason showing, and Cam Newton is expected to target the 6-foot-5, 240-pound Benjamin heavily. However, keep in mind that rookie receivers are prone to up-and-down fantasy performances. The Tampa Bay defense ranked just 21st in fantasy points allowed to the receiver position last season. In addition, Newton (ankle, ribs) is banged up. If he plays, start Benjamin as a flex. 
50WRSanders,EmmanuelDENIND0000000000560000000011
All eyes are on Emmanuel, thus far a middling NFL receiver when healthy. He's the sort of early-to-mid round pick in fantasy drafts -- on the rise since Wes Welker's preseason injury -- who could pay off handsomely for those bold enough to pay the going pricetag. 
51RBHill,JeremyCINBAL104011000000110000000011
You\'re not starting him this week, but you might be soon. Keep a careful eye on his workload. 
52WRAllen,KeenanSDCARI0000000000568000000011
Following his scintillating rookie campaign, Keenan squares off against one of the league's cover corners, on the road in Week 1. You needn't slide him so far down the rankings that he's no longer in the fantasy WR2 range. just saying this isn't when fantasy owners oughta ask for the moon. 
53RBJennings,RashadNYGDET124611000000215000000011
Jennings is an interesting start this week as the Giants look to reestablish the run and Detroit should allow them to do so. The only issue is if Stafford and Calvin get the Lions up BIG early then Jennings would be relegated to blocking duty. 
54WRHartline,BrianMIANEP0000000000561000000011
He is a better option in ppr scoring formats due to his limited end zone appearances. 
55RBMoreno,KnowshonMIANEP114711000000219000000011
Both Moreno and Miller are in the mix. Currently a time share as neither has taken over the starting running back position. 
56WRWhite,RoddyATLNOS0000000000565000000011
The 32-year-old White enters the 2014 season with a clean bill of health. The strong rebound candidate is a must-start in what will be a pass-happy offense. 
57WRJackson,VincentTBBCAR0000000000471000000011
Big-play threat Jackson has quickly developed some solid chemistry with new Buccaneers starting quarterback Josh McCown. However, you should consider Jackson a weak play as a No. 2 fantasy receiver against a Carolina defense that allowed the third-fewest fantasy points to the receiver position last season. 
58WRShorts,CecilJACPHI0000000000566000000011
The Jaguars' top receiving threat has been slowed by a hamstring injury during the preseason and didn't look healthy in game action. Assuming Shorts is healthy enough to suit up, he is a risky play as a flex or low-end No. 3 fantasy receiver. 
Tier Break
59WRWashington,NateTENKCC0000000000460000000010
He is expected to start opposite of Kendall Wright in two-receiver sets, but Washington could lose his starting job sooner rather than later if the intriguing Justin Hunter's dominant play carries over into the regular season. Since the inconsistent Washington is expected to operate as a deep threat, he is a very risky No. 4 fantasy receiver option against a solid Chiefs defense. 
60WRHarvin,PercySEAGBP1300000000460000000010
The preseason has shown what a playmaker he is for this offense. The Broncos already knew that. Seattle will use him in multiple ways to create matchup problems all over the field. He\'s electric and fun to watch but won\'t produce the fantasy stats to justify his current ADP. 
61WRAustin,MilesCLEPIT0100000000465000000010
 
62WRJennings,GregMINSTL0100000000553000000010
The question marks at quarterback will limit the fantasy numbers of all Viking wide outs so keep expectations low this week. 
63WRWatkins,SammyBUFCHI0100000000460000000010
Watkins is still will working on building his rapport with Manuel. He is expected to start week 1 after missing time with a rib injury. 
64WRJackson,DeSeanWASHOU0100000000463000000010
Tough call. As it will be every week. You\'re banking a long shot deep ball touchdown every time you start him. Griffin will likely not have the luxury to allow the deep play to develop with Watt and Clowney closing in quickly. 
65TEWitten,JasonDALSFO0000000000552000000010
Witten should probably see a bump in production with Romo being eager to get the ball out quickly to start the season. Until Romo is fully confident in his recovery, he\'ll be looking to Witten on fast, effective plays to move the ball. 
66RBPierce,BernardBALCIN11431100000015000000010
On the plus side, you should know ahead of time whether he can go or not. The concussion is putting his week one status in danger, 
67TEReed,JordanWASHOU0100000000558000000010
Outside of Garcon, Reed makes for the safest receiving start. With all the questions surrounding RG3 and the pressure he\'ll be facing up front, he\'s going to want to get the ball out quick. Reed will feed off of that formula. 
68TEOlsen,GregCARTBB0000000000551000000010
Cam Newton's most trusted and experienced pass-catcher deserves a spot in your starting lineup. New Buccaneers head coach Lovie Smith's Tampa-2 defensive scheme historically has been vulnerable to the tight end position. However, if Newton (ankle, rib) doesn't play, consider sitting Olsen. 
69TEThomas,JuliusDENIND0000000000552000000010
Has proven to be quite the matchup nightmare for opposing defenses, when healthy. Clearly in line for an expanded role going forward, which fantasy owners are drafting him early in anticipation of. 
70WRStreater,RodOAKNYJ0100000000461000000010
Has not been all that involved in preseason action, but does have the benefit of logging more playing time over the past several seasons than any other offensive skill position player in Oakland (by a long shot). This means something, when you pause to consider the reserve cornerbacks New York will be trotting onto the field in Week 1. 
71WREdelman,JulianNEPMIA0100000000550000000010
Edelman is still Brady's favorite receiver, but it will be difficult for Edelman to repeat last year's production with Gronkwoski and Dobson back in action. 
72WRLee,MarqiseJACPHI0100000000553000000010
Following a solid overall preseason showing, the rookie second-round pick is locked in as a starter opposite of Cecil Shorts. Although Lee is a solid candidate to lead the team in receiving, he likely will struggle with consistency. Lee is not fantasy starter material right now. 
Tier Break
73WRWilliams,TerranceDALSFO000000000045300000009
Williams gets the nod at WR2 for the Cowboys to open the year. He finished the season strong opposite of Bryant but defenses are ready for him now. If he can exploit the additional attention that Dez draws, he\'ll be in for a monster year. 
74RBWilliams,AndreNYGDET938110000001400000009
Williams should fill in as the new Brandon Jacobs. Meaning you\'re waiting for an injury for a bigger impact or keeping your fingers crossed for a touchdown. 
75RBSpiller,C.J.BUFCHI16720000000032500000009
Spiller will continue to see the majority of rushing action, but Jackson will vulture touchdowns and carries. 
76RBJohnson,ChrisNYJOAK18730000000032000000009
Johnson has looked good in preseason action, but he will lose carries and red zone action as Ivory will be in the mix. 
77WRHopkins,DeAndreHOUWAS000000000045900000009
The second-year pro looked great in training camp practices but struggled noticeably in all preseason contests. Despite a decent matchup against a Washington defense that ranked close to average in fantasy points given up to enemy receivers last season, we suggest making Hopkins earn his way into your starting lineup. 
78TEGates,AntonioSDCARI000000000054800000009
Although his fantasy production waned as the months went by, in 2013, Gates experienced a career resurgence in the same vein of longtime teammate Philip Rivers. This offense plays to Gates' strengths, which in the case of this soft matchup can help your fantasy team. 
79WRCobb,RandallGBPSEA120000000045700000009
 
80WRBaldwin,DougSEAGBP010000000045400000009
He has Russell Wilson\'s trust and become an established receiver in this offense. The passing game will open up more this year giving his value a bump over last year. Expect consistent but not spectacular numbers. He would make for a decent WR3. 
81WRRandle,RuebenNYGDET000000000045300000009
If Eli gets jittery in the pocket, and versus the Lions\' front he probably will, he\'ll be looking to get the ball out early and over the middle. That plays right into Randle\'s favor. 
82WRCooks,BrandinNOSATL010000000054900000009
The lightning-quick rookie first-round selection could make his first career start if Kenny Stills (quad) is a no-go in Week 1. If Stills sits, start Cooks as a flex or No. 3 fantasy receiver with upside against an Atlanta defense that ranked close to average in fantasy points given up to the receiver position last year. If Stills starts, consider Cooks a risky flex option. 
83WRCooper,RileyPHIJAC000000000045100000009
If the long ball homerun doesn\'t come in the first half of the game it likely won\'t at all. Once the Eagles get up it\'ll be ball control passes and running out the clock. Not exactly Cooper\'s style. But whose to say they don\'t connect deep in the first quarter? 
84WRBoldin,AnquanSFODAL000000000045000000009
Even at age 33 he\'s still a productive player. Having Crabtree back on the field is a huge bonus for him to help draw coverage. He\'s a solid WR3 with the ability to put up big numbers any given day. 
Tier Break
85TEClay,CharlesMIANEP110000000044000000008
Clay has been nursing a knee injury but is expected to play week 1. He will look to build upon last years success. 
86RBTate,BenCLEPIT16670000000032100000008
If the Browns game plan works they will run...run...and run some more. Whatever they need to do to keep the ball out of the air. This isn\'t the Steelers defense of old, so there is a quality number two play here. 
87TECameron,JordanCLEPIT000000000044800000008
Cameron has had a very bad camp, so while we hesitate to hit the panic button this early, if possible we recommend looking elsewhere week one. Make him show it first. 
88WRTate,GoldenDETNYG010000000044500000008
A slow start for the new Lion, any Lion wide out not named Calvin is a risky start. 
89TEGraham,GarrettHOUWAS000000000044600000008
Although Graham has been very quiet during the preseason, he is expected to have a large role in a new Houston offense that will frequently feature two-tight end formations. In addition, Ryan Fitzpatrick loves to throw to his tight ends. Until we see that upside from Graham during the regular season, however, keep him parked on your bench. 
90TEErtz,ZachPHIJAC000000000044300000008
 
91WRWheaton,MarkusPITCLE010000000044300000008
Silver lining to the preseason week three abomination, Roethlisberger looked Wheaton\'s way...a lot. Not a starter yet, but a priority watch guy? Absolutely. Stash him. 
92RBEllington,AndreARISDC14670000000032700000008
He\'s being drafted as an RB1 and he\'ll get his chance to prove it. Durability is a big question mark as to whether he can handle that many touches. The Cardinals need him to perform if they are going to challenge in the extremely competitive NFC West. 
93TERudolph,KyleMINSTL000000000044600000008
He's had a strong preseason, do not be afraid to start him if you were not able to secure any of the top fantasy tight ends. 
94WRAmendola,DannyNEPMIA000000000044700000008
Amendola is healthy after suffering through injuries last season. Upgrade him week 1 if Dobson and Gronkowski can't go. 
95TEMiller,HeathPITCLE000000000044500000008
Miller will find life more challenging as the Browns have upgraded their pass coverage vs tight ends,look elsewhere this week. 
96WRDouglas,HarryATLNOS000000000044200000008
He is expected to help pick up the slack for the retired Tony Gonzalez. However, Douglas is still the third option in the Atlanta passing attack behind Julio Jones and Roddy White, and slot receivers, like Douglas, can be inconsistent. The smart thing to do: keep Douglas on your bench this week and monitor how the Falcons use him. 
97WRSmith,SteveBALCIN000000000044400000008
I\'m a sucker for veterans early in the season and he has developed an instant connection with Flacco. Start with confidence. 
Tier Break
98WRMoore,DenariusOAKNYJ000000000034000000007
Isn't a lock to make the team's final 53, then again he's as talented as any among Oakland's receiving corps. Maybe this is the year Denarius puts it altogether? 
99RBThomas,PierreNOSATL10400000000053100000007
The only proven pass-catcher in the Saints committee backfield is expected to slide into the old 'Darren Sproles role,' so look for more receptions but fewer carries from Thomas. Last season the Falcons surrendered the 10th-most fantasy points to opposing running backs, and Thomas usually has solid outings against Atlanta. Start him as a low-end No. 2 fantasy running back or flex in PPR leagues. 
100RBMartin,DougTBBCAR14650000000031800000007
During the preseason, Tampa Bay teased fantasy owners about using Martin in a committee, but it looks like he will get the nod as the team's bell cow runner for an offense that is expected to lean heavily on the run. Martin, however, draws a tough matchup versus a Carolina defense that gave up the 10th fewest fantasy points (and only five total touchdowns) to opposing running backs last season. Consider him a weak play as a No. 2 fantasy running back. 
101TEChandler,ScottBUFCHI000000000034000000007
Based on Manuel\'s erratic quarterback play Chandler has limited fantasy value. 
102RBBernard,GiovaniCINBAL12440000000033000000007
Not a great week one opponent, especially given his sluggish August, but you\'re starting him anyway, don\'t get cute. 
103RBSankey,BishopTENKCC16660000000031900000007
Be careful here. Tennessee's rookie second-round pick has been operating in a committee backfield behind Shonn Greene because of problems with ball security and pass protection. Sankey will climb the depth chart to the No. 1 job, but it's going to take some time. Assuming he continues to back up Shonn Greene in Week 1, consider Bishop a weak play as a flex option. 
104WRStills,KennyNOSATL010000000034500000007
The second-year pro will start opposite of Marques Colston. In case you haven't been paying attention, Stills (quad) has been injured throughout the preseason and is not a lock to play in Week 1. Assuming he is healthy enough to suit up, Stills is a risky play as a flex option against a Falcons secondary that ranked close to average in fantasy points yielded to enemy receivers last season. Historically, any New Orleans wide out other than Colston is a hit-or-miss fantasy play. 
105WRCotchery,JerrichoCARTBB010000000034000000007
Despite a very disappointing preseason performance, he is penciled in as a starter opposite of rookie Kelvin Benjamin. Although Cotchery's well-known red-zone ability gives him some weekly upside, the 11th-year pro likely will be the third option in the Carolina passing attack behind Greg Olsen and Kelvin Benjamin. Although Cotchery shouldn't be on your radar right now, keep an eye on him. Cotchery could benefit if opposing defenses double-team Benjamin. 
106TEGreen,LadariusSDCARI000000000034700000007
Doesn't log quite as many snaps as Antonio Gates, although you better believe this coaching staff is committed to getting Ladarius the football downfield. Probably the stash-away component of your tight end by committee approach, if that's how you roll. In other words, we wouldn't recommend rushing him into your lineup just yet. 
107TEWalker,DelanieTENKCC000000000043700000007
New Tennessee head coach Ken Whisenhunt's offense is supposed to be tight end friendly, but Walker has had a quiet preseason. Keep him parked on your bench for now. 
108WRFloyd,MalcomSDCARI000000000034700000007
The enormous veteran has been the talk of camp, balling as well as some beat writers have seen. If Eddie Royal can have multi-touchdown games in this offense, why can't Malcolm follow suit? 
Tier Break
109WRMoore,LancePITCLE010000000033200000006
If he gets a lot of looks it\'s because Wheaton isn\'t ready. that\'s not a good thing for anyone except the Browns. 
110WRJernigan,JerrelNYGDET000000000033500000006
 
111WRBrown,JohnARISDC000000000033100000006
He\'s living up to the hype even if it\'s only preseason. He\'s worth a look in deeper leagues but until he shows it during the regular season he\'s best left on the watch list. 
112RBWilliams,DeAngeloCARTBB11460000000022100000006
Although Williams operated as Carolina's starting runner throughout the preseason, he struggled mightily and was outplayed by backup Jonathan Stewart. Even if Williams holds onto the starting gig, he offers weak No. 4 fantasy running back value in the Panthers' usually unpredictable committee backfield. The Buccaneers defense yielded the sixth-fewest fantasy points to enemy running backs in 2013. 
113TELewis,MarcedesJACPHI000000000033100000006
Lewis is expected to continue operating mainly as a blocker and end-zone target. Consider him a low-end fantasy TE2. 
114TEBennett,MartellusCHIBUF000000000033800000006
He had his peaks and valleys in 2013, with so many mouths to feed in Chicago (Marshall, Jeffery, Forte), not a big ceiling on Bennett's numbers. 
115WRAustin,TavonSTLMIN140000000033300000006
He has so much talent and showed flashes of brilliance toward the end of the year. The Rams must find a way to get him the ball in space and let him put pressure on a defense. Without that proof,however, he\'s simply a late round flier pick at this point. 
116WRWilliams,MikeBUFCHI010000000033800000006
Williams will start opposite Watkins, but will be limited by Manuel\'s erratic play. 
117WRNicks,HakeemINDDEN000000000033900000006
Nicks is expected to see action only when the Colts use three-receiver sets, which makes him a risky No. 4 fantasy wideout. Keep Nicks parked on your bench. 
118WRWoods,RobertBUFCHI010000000033200000006
Woods has limited fantasy value as there are too many other receiving options ahead of him in the passing game. 
119WRDobson,AaronNEPMIA000000000033700000006
Dobson is recovering from a foot injury and has not participated in any preseason action. Check his injury status for week 1 prior to starting. 
120WREvans,MikeTBBCAR000000000033600000006
The rookie first-round selection will start opposite of Vincent Jackson and operate as the clear-cut second option in the Tampa Bay passing attack. Evans, however, looks like a weak play versus an elite Panthers defense that ceded the third-fewest fantasy points to enemy wide outs in 2013. 
121WRKerley,JeremyNYJOAK120000000033900000006
The Jet\'s leading wide receiver last season Kerley will lose receptions to Decker. 
122WRSanu,MohamedCINBAL120000000033100000006
The Jones injury offers Sanu one more shot to earn a meaningful role in this offense. 
123TEEbron,EricDETNYG000000000033000000006
It is probably too early to predict much for the rookie, but the throws will be coming his way very soon this season. 
124TECook,JaredSTLMIN000000000033900000006
His value may be the biggest benefactor of the quarterback situation. HIll will be looking to limit mistakes and has enough experience to utilize the tight end in the passing game. He\'ll be on the waiver wire so keep an eye on him for a possible early addition. 
125TEAllen,DwayneINDDEN000000000033900000006
Allen will continue to share targets with Coby Fleener, which, unfortunately, caps the fantasy upside of both players. Consider Allen a low-end fantasy TE2 option as long as Fleener is healthy. 
126WRQuick,BrianSTLMIN010000000033400000006
The Rams passing game has been too inconsistent with poor quarterback and offensive line play. Until they prove they\'ve turned the corner it\'s too risky to think he will have any significant impact. 
127TEAmaro,JaceNYJOAK000000000033500000006
Amaro has overtaken Cumberland for the number tight end position. As a rookie he will have up and down games. 
128RBRichardson,TrentINDDEN12440000000032000000006
Although he claims to be more comfortable in the Colts offense, Richardson averaged a dismal 2.55 yards per carry through Indianapolis' first three preseason contests. The Colts say they're standing by Richardson as their starting tailback, but he looks like a very risky fantasy play as a No. 2 running back versus a Broncos defense that allowed an average of 81 rushing yards and 0.9 rushing touchdowns per game last season. 
129WRMatthews,JordanPHIJAC000000000033800000006
The lapses in concentration and drops cooled down the Matthews hype quickly. He can regain some steam here against an inferior opponent. 
130WRBeckham,OdellNYGDET000000000033000000006
 
131WRHawkins,AndrewCLEPIT000000000033800000006
The only Browns pass catcher that has looked like he knows what is going on this preseason, but not a starter this week. 
132WRBoykin,JarrettGBPSEA000000000033700000006
 
133WRRoyal,EddieSDCARI020000000033500000006
There were basically four games in which it profited fantasy owners to play Royal last season, which you have to figure would be a rosy outlook for 2014. 
134WRBritt,KennySTLMIN120000000033500000006
He\'ll be the most impacted receiver with the loss of Bradford. Shaun Hill doesn\'t stretch the field as well so his value declines accordingly. Still a high upside if he stays healthy but that\'s a big if. 
135WRBrown,MarlonBALCIN000000000033000000006
 
136TEEifert,TylerCINBAL000000000033200000006
Potential to be an everywhere eek starter, but he isn\'t there yet. Needs to prove to be more than just a red zone asset, which is not a bad problem to have, 
137TEGresham,JermaineCINBAL000000000033000000006
The Ravens are a tough opponent, but the Jones injury offers an opportunity for him to earn a role early on and keep the second year player, Eifert, off his heels. 
138WRJohnson,StevieSFODAL000000000033200000006
It isn\'t certain he\'ll even make the team at this point. He hasn\'t separated himself nor has he established a connection with Kaepernick. He should remain on the waiver wire. 
139WRBurleson,NateCLEPIT010000000033900000006
If he can\'t get on the field for preseason game four then he may not survive the final roster cut. 
140RBMathews,RyanSDCARI13590000000021200000006
A year ago this would have been a fiersome matchup, but gone from Arizona's defensive lineup are Darnell Dockett, Daryl Washington, Karlos Dansby and (probably) Tyrann Mathieu. Then there's the every year rule of thumb that, considering you burned an early pick to acquire Mathews, when he's healthy he belongs in your lineup. Seems to fit, despite traveling to Arizona. 
141WRGibson,BrandonMIANEP000000000033300000006
Gibson has limited fantasy value as there are many options ahead of him in Miami's passing game. 
142TEMyers,BrandonTBBCAR000000000033500000006
Even though rookie second-round pick Austin Seferian-Jenkins has played better overall, Myers is penciled in as Tampa Bay's starting tight end - at least for now. Since he and Seferian-Jenkins likely will share snaps in the short-term, it's hard to like the plodding Myers as a fantasy starter. 
Tier Break
143WRAvery,DonnieKCCTEN010000000023100000005
Becomes interesting as an end of the lineup sort of play, with Dwayne Bowe out, albeit only in extremely deep leagues. Not a favorable matchup in Week 1, if based on last season to some degree. 
144RBIngram,MarkNOSATL7300000000032000000005
Looking much quicker and seeing a surprising amount of action as a goal-line specialist during the preseason, Ingram is expected to operate as the top first- and second-down runner in the Saints committee backfield. He has some appeal as a flex option against an Atlanta defense that gave up the 10th-most fantasy points to enemy running backs last season. 
145WRKearse,JermaineSEAGBP000000000023300000005
His role as the deep threat fits him. He has become a very good red zone target as well. He isn\'t the prototypical tall receiver but has a great ability to go up and get the ball. Hee\'s only going to catch a handful of balls per game but provides high upside potential for his TD ability. 
146WRHunter,JustinTENKCC000000000023700000005
Although he has been absolutely dominant during the preseason, Hunter continues to play only in three-receiver sets, which obviously limits his targets. Hunter won't break out until he cracks the starting lineup. Keep him parked on your bench for now. 
147TERivera,MychalOAKNYJ000000000032800000005
Hands-down the best tight end on this roster, but that probably isn't saying much. Mychal has looked the part in camp, but like many of his teammates is held back by lackluster offensive line and quarterback play. 
148WRPettis,AustinSTLMIN000000000032500000005
 
149RBJones-Drew,MauriceOAKNYJ10410000000031900000005
The lone bright spot among Oakland's acquisitions on offense, Maurice has shown explosiveness and his trademark ability to make defenders miss. He appears to have plenty left in the tank, so to speak, both as a runner and receiving option. Of note: although the Jets secondary is pretty banged up, their front seven will likely prove difficult to pound the ball against. 
150WRHurns,AllenJACPHI000000000032300000005
The undrafted free agent opened some eyes by compiling a 7-113-1 line in Jacksonville's third preseason contest. Hurns played in offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch's system at Miami (Fla), and the wide out displayed solid chemistry with both Chad Henne and Blake Bortles. Although Hurns is not fantasy starter material right now, he is definitely worth monitoring. 
151WRHankerson,LeonardWASHOU010000000023000000005
 
152RBVereen,ShaneNEPMIA5230000000033000000005
Vereen sees limited action in the rushing game but is involved in the passing game. He has more value in PPR leagues.

154TEFasano,AnthonyKCCTEN000000000032200000005
While not as huge and uber athletic as second-year teammate Travis Kelce, ol' reliable isn't a liability as a pass catcher and doesn't blow blocking assignments -- which of course has value in Andy Reid's scheme.

158RBMiller,LamarMIANEP12480000000021400000005
Both Miller and Moreno are in the mix. Currently a time share as neither has taken over the starting running back position.

160RBMcFadden,DarrenOAKNYJ10320000000032000000005
MJD may be the headlining running back, at this juncture, but McFadden has reportedly looked good in camp as well. The problem is, his counterpart's skill set has translated well to live action, McFadden not to the same extent.

165RBHillman,RonnieDENIND8340000000021200000004
Relegated to a 'change of pace' role, Ronnie fortunately has the skill set to do more with less touches. You could do far worse in the way of running back depth, in deeper fantasy leagues. 
166TEKelce,TravisKCCTEN000000000022600000004
There will be formations that get Kelce onto the field with starting tight end Anthony Fasano, but keep in mind that 2013 was essentially a redshirt year for Kelce. Come November he could well be targeted nearly as often anyone in this offense, but patience is in order.

172TEFleener,CobyINDDEN000000000022300000004
It's the same old story with the Indianapolis tight ends: Fleener and Dwayne Allen will continue to cannibalize each other's fantasy value. Fleener rates as an unreliable low-end fantasy TE2 option as long as Allen is healthy. 
173RBWest,TerranceCLEPIT8350000000021200000004
He is a priority handcuff for Tate owners, but nowhere near the starting lineup. Yet. 
174RBWoodhead,DannySDCARI6240000000042600000004
Not only gets his as a pass catching weapon, but is handed the ball in key situations as well. Now locked down for a few more years, Woodhead will be a fixture of this offense over the foreseeable future.

176TEMiller,ZachSEAGBP000000000022400000004
Listed as number one on the depth chart, he is actually number two when it comes to passing game involvement. He is virtually non-existent for this offense in the passing game. His only value would be in TD only leagues as he makes brief appearances in the red zone. 
177WRHolmes,AndreOAKNYJ000000000022400000004
Much like Denarius Moore, who's been around a little longer, Andre possesses a lot of what NFL coaches want in a receiver. He just doesn't seem to have developed enough yet to be of help winning ballgames.

180WRAvant,JasonCARTBB010000000022600000004
Avant is expected to get the nod as the Panthers' slot wide out, so he obviously will play only in three-receiver sets. Carolina's slot receiver has lacked fantasy value during the last few years, and that won't change this season. 
181WRBrown,MikeJACPHI000000000022500000004
Brown showed flashes of promise last season, but he will start 2014 as the backup to rookie Marqise Lee. 
182TEWillson,LukeSEAGBP000000000022200000004
Seattle doesn\'t utilize the tight end position as much as other teams in the league. Willson is the tight end of choice between the twenties but Miller is the red zone threat. Neither are consistent enough to take a chance playing. 
183WRCaldwell,AndreDENIND000000000022300000004
Given his experience within the offense and veteran craftiness, Andre would seem to have the advantage over rookie Cody Latimer -- for now. We're talking Peyton Manning's fifth or sixth receiving option, however. 
184RBIvory,ChrisNYJOAK1046000000001400000004
Ivory has possible flex appeal as he will be the Jet\'s goal line back and see some action in relief of Johnson. 
185WRLaFell,BrandonNEPMIA000000000022600000004
LaFell looks to be New England's deep receiving threat this season. Temper your expectations as Brady will spread the ball to many of his receiving options. 
186TECumberland,JeffNYJOAK000000000022400000004
Cumberland has been sidelined with an Achilles injury and has fallen below Amaro on the depth chart. 
187RBHyde,CarlosSFODAL6340000000021100000004
He\'s averaging nearly six yards per carry so far. Although it\'s only preseason, the 49ers are going to give him touches making him a must handcuff at this point. It\'s way too early to count on a changing of the guard just yet. Keep expectations in check.

191RBStewart,JonathanCARTBB9390000000021100000004
The Panthers' backup tailback outplayed starter DeAngelo Williams by a large margin during the preseason. If Williams continues to struggle, Stewart could carve out a bigger role in the offense, but Carolina's use of a committee backfield likely will limit him to so-so No. 4 fantasy running back value. Last season the Tampa Bay defense gave up the sixth-fewest fantasy points to opposing runners. 
192RBSproles,DarrenPHIJAC3130000000043100000004
It\'s difficult to predict production from a player in a new system where the running back ahead of him does the same job, only better. We\'ll keep things cooled until we see how the offensive mastermind in Kelly uses the veteran pass catcher.

194TECelek,BrentPHIJAC000000000022900000004
If Celek steals a touchdown here, Ertz\'s stock will take a major early season hit. Celek needs to stay on the line and help protect Foles in order for any of Eagles\' tight ends to have consistent value. 
195RBRodgers,JacquizzATLNOS6240000000032200000004
The 5-foot-6, 196-pound runner enters 2014 as the backup to starter Steven Jackson. Although Rodgers has the confidence of the coaching staff, some think it's only a matter of time before impressive rookie fourth-rounder Devonta Freeman passes him on the depth chart. Rodgers won't receive enough touches against the Saints to be fantasy relevant.

However, there are whispers that Atlanta plans to give the 6-foot-8, 260-pound Toilolo a tryout as an end-zone target. The second-year pro doesn't deserve a spot in your starting lineup or even on your roster right now, but keep an eye on him. 
205TEWatson,BenNOSATL000000000021600000003
 
206RBJackson,StevenATLNOS10290000000021000000003
Even though rookie fourth-rounder Devonta Freeman impressed during the preseason, Jackson (hamstring) is still the lead dog in Atlanta's crowded backfield - at least for now. In two games played against an improved New Orleans defense last season, Jackson hit pay dirt once, and averaged 18 combo touches and 100.5 total yards per contest. Consider him a decent low-end fantasy RB2 or flex option. 
207WRHemingway,JuniorKCCTEN000000000021400000003
The organization seems to have uncovered a worthwhile prospect who can contribute in this offense, based on the talent Hemingway has demonstrated in limited duty. This is more than can be said about former first-round picks Jon Baldwin or A.J. Jenkins, both involved in last year's trade with San Francisco. 
208RBBradshaw,AhmadINDDEN6260000000011200000003
He'll start the season as the backup to Trent Richardson, but Bradshaw (neck) could carve out a huge role in a committee backfield if Richardson struggles like he did in 2013. 
209TECarlson,JohnARISDC000000000021600000003
Tight end hasn\'t been a positon of emphasis in this offense. Now on his third team, Carlson brings athleticism to the Cardinals but will sturggle to see targets with so many other weapons around him. 
210WRMorgan,JoshCHIBUF010000000021600000003

212RBTolbert,MikeCARTBB6210000000021200000003
Tolbert is expected to continue operating as the goal-line and passing-down back in the Panthers' unpredictable committee backfield. He remains a touchdown-dependant No. 5 fantasy running back at best. 
213RBFreeman,DevontaATLNOS834000000001900000003
Even though Freeman impressed during the preseason, there is no changing of the guard at tailback for Atlanta just yet. The rookie fourth-round selection enters Week 1 buried behind Steven Jackson and Jacquizz Rodgers on the Falcons' tailback depth chart. While Freeman should see some action against New Orleans, he won't touch the ball enough to make a worthwhile fantasy start. 
214WRThomas,MikeHOUWAS020000000021400000003
 
215TEWright,TimNEPMIA000000000021700000003
It will take some to time for Wright to develop his rapport with Brady. 
216TERodgers,RichardGBPSEA000000000021600000003
Reports are indicating that he is the starter, but with so many other choices at the position, minimal fantasy impact if any expected here. 
217RBHelu,RoyWASHOU5220000000031900000003
Week one is obviously too early to rely on a back up runner. The most important thing to look for here is if he\'s used often on passing plays and how often he replaces Morris. 
218TEMoeaki,TonyBUFCHI000000000021700000003

220RBDavis,KnileKCCTEN7230000000021000000003
Exceeded the expectations of fantasy owners late last season -- along with the Chiefs coaching staff, more than likely. While not the versatile peer of a Jamaal Charles, get the ball into Knile's hands and he has the speed and rugged determination to keep a defense on its heels.

226RBMichael,ChristineSEAGBP626000000001200000002
Many are expecting him to have an impact this year to lighten Lynch\'s workload. The Seahawks want him to be the backup but he hasn\'t earned it yet. 
227RBRobinson,KhiryNOSATL729000000001300000002
After coming on strong in the 2013 playoffs, Robinson fell behind Pierre Thomas and Mark Ingram in the Saints' committee backfield pecking order during the preseason. Robinson received the bulk of his touches between the 20-yard lines while Ingram handled the red-zone duties. As long as Thomas and Ingram are healthy, it doesn't look like Robinson will receive enough touches to be fantasy relevant. 
228RBGreene,ShonnTENKCC726000000001300000002
Rookie Bishop Sankey struggled with ball security and pass protection during the preseason, which is why Greene handled most of the early-down rushing duties as the team's starting tailback. If he gets the starting nod over Sankey in Week 1, Greene would have low-end No. 3 fantasy running back value at best.

The biggest running back in Oakland, not counting fullback/tweener Marcel Reece, Latavius will have a role in short-yardage and goalline packages. Until injuries disupt the depth chart ahead of him -- which does happen with regularity, around here -- the second-year figures to play sparingly. 
235WRBenjamin,TravisCLEPIT010000000011000000002
 
236RBGrimes,JonathanHOUWAS521000000001700000002
Thanks to a rock-solid preseason showing, the third-year pro is expected to get the nod as Arian Foster's understudy. However, as long as Foster is healthy and starting, Grimes obviously offers just handcuff value. 
237RBRainey,BobbyTBBCAR723000000002800000002
He is expected to hold down the fort as Doug Martin's backup. Rainey obviously has just handcuff value as long as Martin is healthy. 
238RBBrown,BryceBUFCHI521000000001300000002

With the exception of a lightning strike touchdown, Dunbar isn\'t worth looking to for fantasy help until Murray misses time. Stash him away until you need bench space.

If Arizona wants to keep Ellington around for 16 games they\'ll most likely use Dwyer for more than a quick spell. He may even become a TD vulture given his size advantage over his counterpart.

White has been a hit at training camp but has shown little so far in preseason action. Barring an injury or move up the running back depth chart White has limited fantasy value.

He is locked in as the #2, only to get significant carries if Eddie Lacy goes down. 
261RBTurbin,RobertSEAGBP728000000001700000002
He\'s getting overlooked by many in favor of Christine Michael but he outplayed Michael. He\'s still the primary backup and should be the handcuff for Lynch owners. He\'s explosive and much better in the passing game but his touches will be limited.

Not likely to get double-digit touches while Ryan Mathews and Danny Woodhead are healthy, even as often as San Diego runs the ball. If his improved play in Indy is any indication though, Donald will help the offense with quality touches when called upon.

275RBBlue,AlfredHOUWAS417000000001400000001

302TESeferian-Jenkins,AustinTBBCAR00000000001400000001
Even though Tampa Bay's rookie second-round selection has impressed during the preseason, Seferian-Jenkins is expected to open the 2014 regular season as the backup to Brandon Myers. Until Seferian-Jenkins claims the starting job outright, he lacks fantasy appeal in what is expected to be a run-heavy offense. However, the rookie is definitely worth monitoring.
