25. Crabtree

Pretty good list. My only gripes are as follows: I think Desean and Garcon have about equal value. Garcon will get more catches (much better in PPR) but Desean will have much better YPC and will most likely have more TD's. I'd have both of them in the 15-18 range at WR.

I also think Demaryius will end up with more points than Calvin this year. I just think Megatron will get banged up (already hobbled in training camp) and miss a few games. Every year it seems like he's on the injury report more often and he's almost 30 now.

I would also move Crabtree up a bit and Edelman down. Edelman benefited from a super injury riddled Patriots receiving core. I think they are healthier and Julian doesn't get the absurd amount of targets this year.

I have him ranked off of last season. Oh wait he was hurt. Oh wait, he's always hurt.

I think you're way off with Edelman and Maclin...I think Edelman becomes Brady's 3rd target as the season develops as long as Gronkowski and Anendola stay healthy, and Maclin just can't stay on the field

I have a hard time projecting him, and I'll admit that. I just don't know what to think with a healthy Wayne and Nicks there, plus Dwayne Allen coming back. Love his talent, I just hate his situation. Think last year was more just the perfect storm for him. But again, I could be way off on him and I'll admit that.

Do you see Mike Evans on my rankings ? Do you see Sammy Watkins ?

It's not about being a shiny new toy. It's about the right situation, for the right receiver, with the right QB. I'm obviously very down on Andre Johnson, and don't really want him on any of my teams, so I have him ranked accordingly, but if somehow he did fall into my lap in the right round, sure I'd take him.

By the way, Kelvin Benjamin should have been down one tier ahead of Victor Cruz, another guy that I'm not going to get on any of my teams this year. He should be one tier down, I'd edit it, but it's not allowing me.

So Riley Cooper over Patterson and Hilton?

Definitely over Hilton, I'd probably move Patterson up to #24 and bump Wayne off. I don't value any person in the Colts offense as high as most with the exception of Bradshaw who I think will be a value pick.

Andre Johnson criminally undervalued as usual, love it.

Also many of these lists have Roddy way too low, especially in PPR...

It was more of a disagreement on how low you ranked Andre Johnson. I can see Benjamin as a late round flier but nothing more, he's the kind of guy who almost never performs year one. Even Demaryius Thomas took a few years. He's a raw receiver who has absolute stone hands. I see it highly unlikely he has much fantasy value this year, nonetheless outperforms a guy coming off 110 catches and 1400 yards, who is a historically great receiver.

PPR Top 25

1. Mega. Stafford Bromance.

2. DT. Manning Bromance

3. Dez. Romo Bromance

4. Jordy Nelson. Rodgers Bromance

5. AJ Green. Best deep threat in the game right now. Not worried about run first O.

6. Antonio Brown. Target hog. Floor is honestly 90 catches. What, is 180lb Markus Wheaton going to become the go-to guy? Um, no.

7. Julio Jones. Foot surgery that isn't a huge deal, having Roddy healthy again is.

8. Brandon Marshall. Cutler Bromance.

9. Victor Cruz. Only thing missing last year was TDs. 87 catch 1197 pace when taking away the game he was hurt and games missed.

10. Andre Johnson. Zero concern with a guy who averages over 100 catches per 16 games.

11. Roddy White. Way undervalued this year. Borderline ridiculous you can get him the 4th round.

12. Randall Cobb. Love Cobb. Don't see much difference between 9-12 here except the other guys have done it for longer. Trust them more.

13. Keenan Allen. Run first O with a healthy (albeit, older) Floyd back. Still going catch 80+ passes

14. Alshon Jeffery. Prove it. Better defense means (potentially) less shootouts. Bennett also hurt in several games last year. Great deep threat though.

15. Torrey Smith. In Kubiak I trust (at least for peppering his #1 WR with targets)

16. Mike Wallace. In Lazor I trust. Played out wide 90% of the time last year. Dumb. 73 catches last year in a bad year, and didn't get used right.

17. Wes Welker. TD regression? What, is Demaryius gonna catch 25 TDs? steady as they come. Weekly 6 for 70 with good shot at TD each week.

18. Marques Colston. Still solid, hohum, WR2 that will blow up 25% of the time. Otherwise, steady 5 for 75 guy. TDs are capped with Graham though.

19. Michael Crabtree. Defense is worse. Healthier now. only 1 year removed from 85/1105/9 season. Strong case for him to be higher.

20. Percy Harvin. Chess piece. Won't see more than 7 targets/gm, doesn't need it. Electric with the ball in his hands.

21. Larry Fitzgerald. All good things must come to an end. Finished 17th last year, just like upside of guys ahead of him more. Sorry Fitz.

22. Michael Floyd. Could pass Fitz this year. TDs will almost certainly rise. With Fitz in town, I can't make a case for him any higher.

23. Cordarrelle Patterson. Still a raw route runner. Had questionable hands out of college. Norv will utilized his talents though. Might be frustrating to own.

24. Vincent Jackson. Guaranteed to win your week 5 times, lose your week 5 times, and be ordinary 5 times. Will finish in the 15-18th range, but annoying to own.

25. Eric Decker. Could surprise people if Geno becomes slightly less crappy. #1 WR with a bad defense. Probably going to be inconsistent though. Is he a true #1 WR with #1 CBs in his face? We will find out.

Shiz, I forgot to put Garcon back in there. Ugh, he is supposed to be the 2nd spot of the Keenan/Jeffery tier. Also, the tidbit about Brown should say, "What is the unproven 180lb Wheaton going to be the go-to guy? Um, no."

I've seen the "defense is worse" argument for Crabtree a lot. If I could play Devil's Advocate for a minute, since when does having a bad defense mean you have to throw more?

Yes, if you're down all the time, I suppose you would be inclined to throw. But a lot of teams who can't stop the other team (think whomever played the Broncos last year) wanted to run the ball, kill the clock and keep the other offense off the field.

Given how well the 49ers have run the ball in recent years, why would they all of a sudden start letting Kap chuck it 40 times a game?
