# Player Team POS. $ BYE PROJECTION
1  Jamaal Charles RB $60 6 Charles was the top-scoring RB in 2013 by a large margin, but be sure to handcuff him with Knile Davis.
2  LeSean McCoy RB $59 7 The debate rages over whether or not McCoy tops Charles in his second season under Chip Kelly.
3  Matt Forte RB $55 9 Led all running backs with 74 receptions in '13; 4.6 yards per carry was second-highest in his career.
4  Adrian Peterson RB $53 10 Followed up 2K season with 1,266 rushing yards. Needs passing game to develop for more room to run.
5  Calvin Johnson WR $50 9 The challenge to his throne is greater than it has been recently, but Megatron is still king of the receivers.
6  Eddie Lacy RB $48 9 The top rookie last season should see more action in the passing game during his sophomore year.
7  Jimmy Graham TE $38 6 You'll have to spend a late first-round pick in order to get the No. 1 tight end, but he'll be worth it.
8  Demaryius Thomas WR $42 4 With Eric Decker now in New York, Thomas is the unquestioned top target in the Denver red zone.
9  Marshawn Lynch RB $46 4 After a short holdout, Beast Mode returns for his contract year -- he'll see some touches go to backups.
10  Le'Veon Bell RB $45 12 Despite missing start of 2013, Bell finished as one of the most productive running backs as a rookie.
11  Brandon Marshall WR $39 9 Marshall and Alshon Jeffery are the NFL's best WR duo, with Marshall still playing the role of top dog.
12  A.J. Green WR $38 4 Green has averaged 97.5 catches, 1,388 yards and 11 touchdowns across the last two seasons.
13  Dez Bryant WR $38 11 Bryant has averaged 92.5 catches, 1307.5 yards and 12.5 touchdowns across the last two seasons.
14  DeMarco Murray RB $42 11 The oft-injured bruiser is in a contract year, so he may see more involvement in the passing game.
15  Montee Ball RB $40 4 Ball inherits the starting job with Knowshon Moreno's exit, and could get plenty of room to run in Manning's offense.
16  Arian Foster RB $38 10 The former No. 1 fantasy pick has fallen outside of the top 10 following back surgery last season.
17  Julio Jones WR $37 9 Jones was averaging 14 fantasy points per game before suffering a season-ending foot injury last year.
18  Giovani Bernard RB $36 4 Bernard became Bengals' primary back late last season, and the new offense should feature him prominently.
19  Jordy Nelson WR $37 9 Worthy of being elite, Nelson had 49 catches for 810 yards and seven touchdowns in eight games in 2013.
20  Doug Martin RB $34 7 Torn labrum ended '13 early, but he returns healthy with a ton of weapons around him -- and a new quarterback.
21  Alshon Jeffery WR $34 9 Jeffery broke out with 89 catches for 1,421 yards and seven TDs in '13, and will be deadly with Marshall.
22  Antonio Brown WR $33 12 PPR gold in Black and Gold. Brown had 110 receptions for 1,499 yards and eight touchdowns in 2013.
23  Alfred Morris RB $32 10 Jay Gruden will feature Morris, but lack of skill in the passing game brings him down a few notches.
24  Peyton Manning QB $45 4 A repeat of last year's historic season is unlikely, but Manning doesn't need that to be elite.
25  Randall Cobb WR $31 9 Cobb was on a 100-catch, 1,300-yard, eight-touchdown pace before breaking his leg last year.
26  Reggie Bush RB $28 9 Bush had the second-best fantasy season of his career in 2013, but he'll share touches with Joique Bell.
27  C.J. Spiller RB $26 9 Spiller has never had more than 250 touches in a season, but his contract year could cure what ails him.
28  Andre Ellington RB $22 4 Ellington gets starting gig and more touches in 2014 after leading NFL with 5.5 yards per carry in 2013.
29  Rob Gronkowski TE $22 10 When he's healthy, Gronkowski can be the best fantasy tight end in the game.
30  Ryan Mathews RB $20 10 After a great season, Mathews gets to work under a new offensive coordinator for 2014.
31  Vincent Jackson WR $28 7 Jackson keeps on getting it done, and that was all the more impressive last year given the QB play in Tampa.
32  Larry Fitzgerald WR $28 4 Slowly but surely ceding No. 1 status to Michael Floyd, but Fitz is still a rock-solid fantasy starter.
33  Aaron Rodgers QB $43 9 Consistency, rushing stats and supporting cast make Rodgers a top choice for a fantasy quarterback.
34  Pierre Garcon WR $26 10 Garcon was a catch and yardage beast, and now has help from DeSean Jackson. Give him a boost in PPR.
35  Julius Thomas TE $18 4 After breaking out last season, Thomas won't be a surprise in Peyton Manning's offense in 2014.
36  Keenan Allen WR $24 10 Allen had a sparkling rookie year and returns as Philip Rivers' top target. Beware the lack of a track record.
37  Zac Stacy RB $19 4 Stacy had a monster rookie season, but top running back rookie Tre Mason could eat into his carries.
38  Rashad Jennings RB $17 8 Should lead the Giants on the ground between the five-yard lines after stints in Oakland and Jacksonville.
39  Drew Brees QB $39 6 From 2011 to '13, Brees averaged 5,271 passing yards and 42 TDs. Expect him to approach that again.
40  Andre Johnson WR $24 10 Johnson's unhappiness in Houston is about the only thing that could potentially keep him out of the top 20.
41  Wes Welker WR $20 4 Emmanuel Sanders could bite into his numbers given their similar skill sets, but Manning will make it work.
42  Victor Cruz WR $19 8 In a lost season for the Giants in '13, Cruz still managed 73 catches and 998 yards while missing two games.
43  Shane Vereen RB $16 10 Broken wrist killed most of his 2013 season, but entering contract year, he could reach 1,300 total yards.
44  Toby Gerhart RB $14 11 Peterson's former backup is ready to step into the spotlight as the undisputed starter in Jacksonville.
45  Michael Crabtree WR $17 8 Crabtree brings an element to the SF offense that it lacked most of 2013. Can Kaepernick take advantage?
46  Roddy White WR $17 9 After struggling with ankle troubles, White finished with 502 receiving yards and two TDs in five games.
47  DeSean Jackson WR $16 10 Jackson won't be the No. 1 in Washington, but he doesn't need a ton of targets to make an impact.
48  Frank Gore RB $12 8 Gore continues to play well despite his age, but he could be challenged by rookie Carlos Hyde.
49  Ben Tate RB $12 4 Like Gerhart, Tate earns a starting job for the first time, but two rookie backups could steal touches.
50  Joique Bell RB $11 9 Getting 250 touches isn't out of the question for Bell as he splits time with Reggie Bush.
51  Chris Johnson RB $11 11 Johnson takes his talents to New York. He has played in 93 of a possible 96 regular season games.
52  Kendall Wright WR $14 9 If Wright nears 140 targets again this year, expect his touchdowns to increase from the two he had last year.
53  Torrey Smith WR $13 11 Smith is underrated because of a fluky lack of touchdowns. Don't let that sway you from grabbing him.
54  Percy Harvin WR $11 4 If we knew Harvin would play a full 16 games, he'd probably be ranked 10 slots higher.
55  Jeremy Maclin WR $10 7 After missing all of last year with a torn ACL, Maclin returns as the No. 1 receiver in a very potent offense.
56  Michael Floyd WR $9 4 Floyd broke out with 1,041 yards and five scores last year. This could be the season he surpasses Larry Fitzgerald.
57  Bishop Sankey RB $10 9 Sankey is the lone rookie RB expected to start out of the gate behind an improved O-line in Tennessee.
58  Trent Richardson RB $10 10 After a forgettable 2013 season, Richardson looks to be more comfortable in Indianapolis.
59  Julian Edelman WR $8 10 Edelman should be higher in PPR leagues, but he will see fewer targets if Gronkowski and Vereen stay healthy.
60  Cordarrelle Patterson WR $7 10 There's no doubt Patterson is a dynamic player, but the Vikings need to find someone to get him the ball.
61  Marques Colston WR $7 6 Colston looks to be on the downside of his career, but he'll be a WR3 at worst playing with Drew Brees.
62  Stevan Ridley RB $8 10 Ridley will work the ground as Vereen handles most passing downs, but he has to fix his fumbling.
63  Vernon Davis TE $11 8 No holdout for Davis. Only Graham has averaged more fantasy points over the past three seasons.
64  Mike Wallace WR $7 5 Wallace was inconsistent in his first year in Miami, but remains the team's most talented offensive weapon.
65  Reggie Wayne WR $7 10 Wayne may be old, but you'd be foolish to bet against a guy whose bust in Canton is already being prepared.
66  Emmanuel Sanders WR $7 12 It might be possible to sleepwalk through 16 games as a receiver in Denver and still catch eight TDs.
67  Ray Rice RB $8 11 Despite a two-game suspension to start '14, Rice has been one of the best fantasy RBs over past three years.
68  Matthew Stafford QB $25 9 If Golden Tate is the second receiver Stafford has always lacked, this could be his best year yet.
69  Steven Jackson RB $7 9 Age hasn't been kind to Jackson. He's expected to be ready for the regular season after a hamstring injury.
70  Matt Ryan QB $22 9 With Julio Jones and Roddy White healthy, Ryan should bounce back from a disappointing 2013 campaign.
71  T.Y. Hilton WR $6 10 In order for Hilton to take the next step among WRs, Andrew Luck needs to do the same among QBs.
72  Pierre Thomas RB $6 6 Opportunity is there for Thomas with Sproles gone, but he's now being chased by three young RBs.
73  Eric Decker WR $6 11 Life will be much more challenging for Decker without Peyton Manning throwing him the ball.
74  Terrance Williams WR $5 11 With no one ahead of him on the depth chart other than Dez Bryant, now is Williams' time to break out.
75  Lamar Miller RB $5 5 If Moreno's knee doesn't heal, Miller will be the man in Miami. Your best bet will be to handcuff the two.
76  Tom Brady QB $21 10 Brady will outperform his draft-day price if Rob Gronkowski can stay healthy this season
77  Jason Witten TE $10 11 Still one of the best receiving weapons in the Cowboys' offense, which is now without Miles Austin.
78  Nick Foles QB $19 7 The most efficient quarterback last year, Foles could make the leap this season.
79  Greg Olsen TE $8 12 The University of Miami product gets tons of yardage, but he needs to score more touchdowns.
80  Cecil Shorts WR $5 11 It would be interesting to see where Shorts would be ranked if he were on any team but Jacksonville.
81  Sammy Watkins WR $5 9 Watkins was the best receiver in the draft by a comfortable margin. It's all up to EJ Manuel from here.
82  Jordan Cameron TE $5 4 Can he repeat his breakout season in this new offense -- without Josh Gordon?
83  Andrew Luck QB $14 10 Luck quite simply is not as good a fantasy quarterback as he is in real life.
84  Jordan Reed TE $2 10 Concussion problems ended Reed's chances of being the top rookie TE, but he could be the top sophomore.
85  Maurice Jones-Drew RB $4 5 In his first season out of Jacksonville, Jones-Drew will try to unseat the oft-injured/disappointing McFadden.
86  Danny Woodhead RB $4 10 Woodhead will have to convince the new OC in San Diego to get as many touches as last season.
87  Dennis Pitta TE $1 11 Looking for a rebound year, but coming back from a fractured and dislocated hip won't be easy on him.
88  Golden Tate WR $5 9 The Lions have long been searching for a receiver opposite Calvin Johnson. Tate may be their man.
89  Hakeem Nicks WR $5 10 Nicks could benefit from a new start with the Colts, but remember that he's third on the depth chart.
90  Fred Jackson RB $4 9 It's rare to see a 33-year-old running back excel, but he'll still get several carries alongside Spiller.
91  DeAndre Hopkins WR $4 10 If Ryan Fitzpatrick can rejuvenate the passing game, Hopkins could have the year many expected of him in '13.
92  Bernard Pierce RB $3 11 He should start first two games with Rice's suspension, but he's coming off a disappointing season.
93  Darren Sproles RB $3 7 He's a great receiving RB who will help replace the playmaking skills of the departed DeSean Jackson.
94  DeAngelo Williams RB $3 12 The lowest-ranked starting tailback, Williams will serve as a mediocre roster spot for you once again.
95  Robert Griffin III QB $13 10 Everything is there (receivers, new coach, healthy knee) for Griffin to erase the horrible memories of 2013.
96  Cam Newton QB $12 12 Given the dearth of weapons in the passing game, Newton is more dependent on his legs than ever.
97  Riley Cooper WR $3 12 Cooper had 835 yards and eight TDs last year, but much of that came in three games of 361 yards and six scores.
98  Tony Romo QB $10 11 Despite all the potshots, Romo has been a QB1 on a points-per-game basis every year of his career.
99  Knowshon Moreno RB $3 5 After arthroscopic knee surgery, Moreno looks to be losing ground to Miller in the race to be the starting RB.
100  Chris Ivory RB $3 11 If Chris Johnson falters in New York, Ivory will be there to scoop up the touches.
101  Brandin Cooks WR $3 6 Cooks landed in the best spot for a rookie receiver. He could generate starter-worthy numbers in New Orleans.
102  James Jones WR $3 5 Jones was always worth watching in GB, but he can be relegated to the dustbin now that he's with Oakland.
103  Mike Evans WR $3 7 The Bucs drafted Evans in Round 1, teaming him up with fellow big WR Vincent Jackson. Lots of potential here.
104  Dwayne Bowe WR $3 6 Bowe had a career low in receptions despite playing 15 games last year. His yards per catch average fell to 11.8.
105  Jay Cutler QB $10 9 Playing in the center of one of the league's best offenses, Cutler could finish the year as a top-five QB.
106  Anquan Boldin WR $3 8 Boldin had 85 catches for 1,179 yards and seven TDs last year, but his prospects are dimming with Crabtree healthy.
107  Terrance West RB $3 4 Coming from the small school of Towson, West's skills are ideal for what Cleveland is looking for on the ground.
108  Justin Hunter WR $3 9 Hunter, who's been compared to Alshon Jeffery, can be a huge red-zone weapon for Tennessee.
109  Devonta Freeman RB $2 9 With Steven Jackson already hampered by a hamstring injury, the rookie looks like a great mid-round sleeper.
110  Kyle Rudolph TE $1 10 Playing under offensive coordinator Norv Turner should be a good thing for the former Golden Domer.
111  Philip Rivers QB $8 10 Rivers enjoyed a resurgence in 2013, but he should still be considered a backup in 12-team leagues.
112  Tre Mason RB $2 4 The Rams plan on using the rookie as a change-of-pace running back behind sophomore Zac Stacy.
113  Colin Kaepernick QB $8 8 Kaepernick just doesn't do enough in the air to trust him as a regular fantasy starter just yet.
114  Seattle Seahawks DST $5 4 You'll have to move quick if you want the best DST over the past two years -- likely in Round 8 or earlier.
115  Darren McFadden RB $2 5 If he's not injured, he's usually disappointing. Has started just 26 of 48 games over past three seasons.
116  Josh Gordon WR $3 4 The fantasy community will have to wait to see the punishment handed down to Gordon.
117  Jarrett Boykin WR $2 9 As the new No. 3 receiver in Green Bay, Boykin finds himself in a potentially lucrative spot.
118  Marvin Jones WR $2 4 Cincinnati loves to throw the ball, though that impulse could be muted with Hue Jackson at the helm.
119  Greg Jennings WR $2 10 At this point of his career, Jennings is no more than depth at the receiver position for fantasy owners.
120  Ben Roethlisberger QB $7 12 Big Ben is playing with a top WR in Antonio Brown, and could outperform projections if Le'Veon Bell steps up.
121  Brian Hartline WR $2 5 Hartline had more than 1,000 yards last year, but he caught just four TDs. His ceiling is no higher than that.
122  Jeremy Hill RB $2 4 Hill could see goal-line work for the Bengals as the door closes on BenJarvus Green-Ellis.
123  Russell Wilson QB $7 4 Wilson is a perfect fit for Seattle in real life, but that comes at the expense of his fantasy value.
124  Markus Wheaton WR $2 12 Wheaton steps up alongside Antonio Brown to start in Pittsburgh with Emmanuel Sanders in Denver.
125  Mark Ingram RB $2 6 Ingram has broken many fantasy owners' hearts, but that could change as he enters a contract season.
126  Andre Brown RB $2 10 Brown inherits the backup job behind Arian Foster, who's coming off of back surgery.
127  Kenny Stills WR $2 6 Stills never quite got going last year, but he should be on the field for a whole lot more snaps this season.
128  Martellus Bennett TE $1 9 In Chicago alongside Marshall and Jeffery, Bennett turns this passing offense into triple towers.
129  Tavon Austin WR $2 4 The Rams never figured out how to properly use Austin last year. The talent remains, but don't use a high pick.
130  Charles Clay TE $1 5 Yet another tight end coming off a breakout season, Clay came through after Dustin Keller injured his knee.
131  Rueben Randle WR $2 8 Randle has sleeper potential, given that he racked up 611 yards and six TDs on a struggling Giants team in '13.
132  Zach Ertz TE $0 7 Should blow past Celek and become a viable fantasy player in his sophomore season with Chip Kelly's Eagles.
133  Kelvin Benjamin WR $2 12 Benjamin is going to be responsible for carrying the Carolina receivers, which should result in a lot of targets.
134  Carlos Hyde RB $2 8 Rookie out of Ohio State was considered the top back entering the draft, will work behind Gore.
135  Khiry Robinson RB $2 6 Many expect him to overtake Ingram -- and possibly Thomas -- on Saints' depth chart.
136  Jordan Matthews WR $2 7 The rookie Matthews will be given every opportunity to be the No. 3 receiver in Philadelphia's potent offense.
137  Danny Amendola WR $2 10 Sure, Amendola is in a great spot with the Patriots, but how can any fantasy owners expect him to stay healthy?
138  Christine Michael RB $1 4 Battling Knile Davis as top handcuff honors, the super sophomore will be much more involved in 2014.
139  Shonn Greene RB $1 9 If rookie Bishop Sankey can't handle starting, Greene will slowly move in to steal the starting position.
140  Jonathan Stewart RB $1 12 Backing up the lowest-ranked starting tailback gives Stewart some value, but not much.
141  LeGarrette Blount RB $1 12 After a great second-half of 2013, Blount signs to back up Bell in Pittsburgh.
142  Andy Dalton QB $6 4 Dalton always seems to follow a huge game with two duds. He'd be five spots higher if he had any consistency.
143  Eli Manning QB $5 8 Manning is clearly a fantasy backup at this point, but there's some solid talent on the Giants offense.
144  Steve Smith WR $2 11 Smith can still stretch the field deep, and his new QB, Joe Flacco, has always been able to throw a pretty deep ball.
145  Knile Davis RB $1 6 Expected to get more work behind top RB Charles in his sophomore year. The top handcuff for 2014?
146  Ryan Tannehill QB $5 5 Tannehill showed marked improvement last year. Expect him to take another step in his development.
147  Ladarius Green TE $0 10 Green should officially overtake Gates this season -- in fantasy if not on the depth chart -- with his big-play ability.
148  Steve Johnson WR $2 8 The consistently underwhelming Johnson has a new home, but that's unlikely to boost his fantasy value.
149  Josh McCown QB $5 7 McCown will have trouble repeating last year's magic without Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery.
150  Donald Brown RB $1 10 Brown is waiting in the wings to replace either Mathews or Woodhead if one gets injured.
151  S.F. 49ers DST $3 8 Despite losing linebackers Bowman and Aldon Smith for a bit, this DST remains one of the best.
152  Sam Bradford QB $4 4 Was quietly having a nice 2013 season (1,687 yards, 14 TDs in seven games) before suffering a torn ACL.
153  Cincinnati Bengals DST $3 4 Returning injured players stock an already formidable defensive unit in Cincinnati.
154  Carolina Panthers DST $3 12 Carolina's devastating pass rush should compensate for an inexperienced secondary.
155  Carson Palmer QB $4 4 Palmer has good weapons in Larry Fitzgerald, Michael Floyd and Andre Ellington. Upside aplenty.
156  EJ Manuel QB $4 9 The Bills traded up to get Manuel a top-flight weapon in Sammy Watkins. Now the onus is on him.
157  St. Louis Rams DST $3 4 A stacked defense, led by Laurinaitis, Long and Quinn, paired with Tavon Austin as their return man.
158  Aaron Dobson WR $2 10 The only sure things in NE are Gronkowski and Edelman. Someone will have to step up, and it could be Dobson.
159  Cody Latimer WR $2 4 Latimer may not get a shot until later in the year, but he's a great guy to draft and stash given that he's in Denver.
160  Ahmad Bradshaw RB $1 10 All healed from last season's neck injury, Bradshaw could compete for more work if Richardson disappoints.
161  Odell Beckham Jr. WR $2 8 With plenty of competition on the depth chart behind Cruz, Beckham will have to prove himself in training camp.
162  Joe Flacco QB $3 11 Flacco now has two receivers (Torrey Smith, Steve Smith) that can take advantage of his big arm.
163  Rod Streater WR $2 5 Streater should start opposite James Jones in Oakland, but the Raiders' passing game leaves a lot to be desired.
164  Lance Dunbar RB $1 11 The dynamic running back could see time even if Cowboys starter DeMarco Murray never gets injured.
165  Heath Miller TE $0 12 Miller was sidelined with a knee injury in 2013, but he's one of Roethisberger's favorite targets in the end zone.
166  Denver Broncos DST $2 4 Adding DeMarcus Ware and Aqib Talib should help when foes have to go to the air to catch up against Peyton.
167  Arizona Cardinals DST $2 4 Yet another excellent defense/special teams unit from the NFC West, the Cardinals do a little bit of everything well.
168  Jared Cook TE $0 4 Cook is a prime breakout candidate after his first season in St. Louis. A healthy Sam Bradford should help him out.
169  Brandon LaFell WR $2 10 You could do worse than taking a chance on a guy on the Patriots offense this late in your draft.
170  Andre Williams RB $1 8 Williams started the preseason with a touchdown run, and he should see regular season goal-line work, too.
171  Robert Woods WR $2 9 The second-year man is another favorite sleeper after catching 40 passes for 587 yards and three TDs in '13.
172  N.E. Patriots DST $2 10 Belichick brings in Darrelle Revis and Brandon Browner for the secondary, as stud players return from injury.
173  Miles Austin WR $1 4 So much of football is about opportunity, and Austin will have that in Cleveland.
174  Denarius Moore WR $1 5 Moore has slid down to No. 3 on the Oakland depth chart, making him essentially a non-factor in leagues.
175  Antonio Gates TE $0 10 Formerly one of the best tight ends in fantasy, Gates is now going to be a guy that shines every now and again.
176  Harry Douglas WR $1 9 Douglas had a cup of coffee with owners last year, but with Jones and White healthy, that's unlikely in '14.
177  Doug Baldwin WR $1 4 Baldwin figures to be the No. 2 receiver in Seattle, trailing only the injury-prone Percy Harvin. Sleeper alert.
178  Alex Smith QB $3 6 Smith remains the poster boy for the term "game manager." That isn't a good thing in fantasy leagues.
179  Marqise Lee WR $1 11 Lee is definitely a cut below his fellow rookie receivers, and being in Jacksonville only makes it worse.
180  Roy Helu RB $0 10 Helu is better in the passing game than Morris, but has to earn more touches in Gruden's offense.
181  Stepfan Taylor RB $0 4 If skeptics are right about Ellington's ability to work a full load, Taylor will be waiting in the wings.
182  Andrew Hawkins WR $1 4 Hawkins had a mini-run of fantasy relevance with the Bengals in 2012, but that petered out last season.
183  Baltimore Ravens DST $1 11 While this is an aging unit, it should score more often than it did in 2013.
184  Kansas City Chiefs DST $1 6 Like the Ravens, the Chiefs are regressing back to the mean, which means fewer defensive touchdowns.
185  James Starks RB $0 9 An early retirement of Johnathan Franklin (neck injury) makes Starks' the likely backup to Lacy.
186  Johnny Manziel QB $3 4 Manziel is the upside play in Cleveland, but Brian Hoyer is likely to get the first shot.
187  Jake Locker QB $3 9 If Locker can stay healthy, he can be a fantasy weapon. That has proven to be a big if.
188  Matt Prater K $2 4 He may not get another 75 extra points this year, but he was also 25-for-26 on field goal attempts.
189  C.J. Anderson RB $0 4 If Ball can't produce in his second season, the Broncos might go with the bowling ball-like Anderson.
190  Eric Ebron TE $0 9 The rookie will eventually become one of Stafford's favorite targets, but he'll likely struggle early on.
191  Bryce Brown RB $0 9 Brown was brought in this offseason as the possible future, as Spiller and Jackson enter contract years.
192  Delanie Walker TE $0 9 Locker is healthy (for now), and the Titans are hoping Walker and Justin Hunter can become end-zone targets.
193  Stephen Gostkowski K $2 10 As rock solid as they come -- he has led the league in scoring each of the last two years.
194  Dexter McCluster WR $1 9 McCluster can bring a new dynamic to the Tennessee offense, but he's only a viable option in deeper leagues.
195  Mike Williams WR $1 9 Williams has been an every-other-year guy in his four NFL seasons. Give him a shot if you believe in that sort of stuff.
196  Steven Hauschka K $2 4 Hauschka's 94.3-percent success rate last year was second to Matt Prater's, but he attempted nine more FGs.
197  Latavius Murray RB $0 5 Murray sits behind Jones-Drew and McFadden, both of whom are incredibly inconsistent.
198  Tyler Eifert TE $0 4 Another second-year tight end, Eifert should receive more attention now in a new offense.
199  Dwayne Allen TE $0 10 Allen's coming back from a hip injury that ended his 2013 after Week 1. He should be one of Luck's top targets.
200  Kenbrell Thompkins WR $1 10 Thompkins was everybody's favorite sleeper last year. Monitor his use in the exhibition games.
201  Charles Sims RB $0 7 The Buccaneers drafted him early in the third round to work passing downs in a new offense.
202  Jerricho Cotchery WR $1 12 Someone has to catch passes in Carolina, right? Cotchery, who had 10 TDs last year, has sneaky value.
203  James White RB $0 10 White could be auditioning this season to be top back next season, as Ridley and Vereen are in contract years.
204  Justin Tucker K $2 11 Tucker has a big leg (he made a 61-yarder last year), and connected on 92.7 percent of his field goal attempts.
205  Tampa Bay Buccaneers DST $1 7 Lovie Smith returns to town ready to help a young squad improve from average last season.
206  Dan Bailey K $2 11 Bailey is remarkably consistent, having finished in the top 10 each of the last three seasons.
207  Teddy Bridgewater QB $3 10 Bridgewater, not Manziel, is the rookie quarterback that you want to have on your team.
208  Jordan Todman RB $0 11 Todman is set to handle backup duties behind Gerhart in Jacksonville, but he may see some game action.
209  Geno Smith QB $2 11 Smith appears to be the favorite for the Jets' job, yet remains no more than a backup in fantasy leagues.
210  Malcom Floyd WR $1 10 Talent has never been a question for Floyd, but his health is questionable season after season.
211  Cleveland Browns DST $1 4 Cornerback Joe Haden headlines this defense, but it'll be on the field a lot again, it seems.
212  Phil Dawson K $1 8 Dawson just needed to get himself out of Cleveland to become relevant to fantasy owners.
213  Matt Schaub QB $2 5 Schaub needed a change of scenery more than any other QB in the league, but Oakland is not the ideal spot.
214  Ryan Fitzpatrick QB $2 10 Fitzpatrick has a little bit of deep sleeper buzz thanks to Andre Johnson, DeAndre Hopkins and Arian Foster.
215  Isaiah Crowell RB $0 4 The 2011 SEC Freshman of the Year has talent, and he just needs to take advantage of opportunities.
216  Blair Walsh K $1 10 Walsh didn't replicate his rookie success, but he still drilled 26-of-30 field goal attempts last year.
217  Mike Tolbert RB $0 12 The more things change, the more thay stay the same as Tolbert plays FB for Williams and Stewart.
218  Matt Bryant K $1 9 With the Atlanta offense fully healthy, Bryant should once again be a fantasy starter.
219  Kenny Britt WR $1 4 If you're inclined to take a shot on a receiver at this stage of the draft, go with someone as talented as Britt.
220  Ka'Deem Carey RB $0 9 Forte was one of the most used RBs last season, and Carey should get a chance to give him a breather.
221  Houston Texans DST $0 10 No. 1 overall draft pick Jadeveon Clowney joins J.J. Watt to possibly make the best pass-rushing tandem in years.
222  Alex Henery K $1 7 Despite the success of the Eagles offense, Henery ranked 19th among kickers in '13, missing five of 28 FG attempts.
223  Garrett Graham TE $0 10 With Owen Daniels out of town and three shaky QBs on the roster, Graham could see a lot of check-downs.
224  Jace Amaro TE $0 11 The rookie will have to beat out Jeff Cumberland (not difficult) and score some TDs for the Jets (difficult).
225  Nick Novak K $1 10 Novak rode a resurgent San Diego offense to the third-most fantasy points among kickers a season ago.
226  Nate Washington WR $1 9 Washington will be just about the most boring pick in any draft in which he is selected.
227  Jacquizz Rodgers RB $0 9 With just under 3.7 yards per carry in his career, Rodgers might lose Falcons' backup gig to Freeman.
228  Marlon Brown WR $1 11 Brown had seven touchdowns last year, but his value takes a big hit with Steve Smith in town.
229  BenJarvus Green-Ellis RB $0 4 Cincinnati drafted rookie Jeremy Hill to replace Green-Ellis on short yardage attacks.
230  Lache Seastrunk RB $0 10 The rookie out of Baylor could work his way up to be the top backup behind Morris in Washington.
231  Mason Crosby K $1 9 Crosby bounced back from a miserable 2012 season, and will always be a top option so long as he's in Green Bay.
232  Chris Givens WR $1 4 There are too many No. 3/4 receivers in St. Louis, and Givens doesn't have a unique talent to distinguish himself.
233  Coby Fleener TE $0 10 Luck's teammate at Stanford had some good games, but he really hasn't progressed as we all had hoped.
234  Marcus Lattimore RB $0 8 Still working his way back from a horrific college knee injury, it remains to be seen what he can offer in 2014.
235  Shayne Graham K $1 6 The Saints' kicker will always be an attractive fantasy option with Drew Brees in town.
236  Michael Vick QB $1 11 Vick is always tempting, but he's No. 2 on the depth chart and, at 34 years old, is a huge injury risk.
237  Marquess Wilson WR $1 9 Wilson is worth considering in very deep leagues thanks to the high-powered Chicago passing game.
238  Jeremy Kerley WR $1 11 Kerley should start opposite Eric Decker and, at 25 years old, he still has plenty of room to grow.
239  Brian Hoyer QB $1 4 Hoyer played well in three games before tearing his ACL. Don't assume Manziel will start in Cleveland.
240  Jerick McKinnon WR $1 10 Patterson and Jennings are the starters, but McKinnon can move up to No. 3 with a strong training camp.
241  Jerrel Jernigan WR $1 8 Jernigan finished the season with a flourish, catching 19 of 27 targets for 237 yards and two touchdowns.
242  Austin Seferian-Jenkins TE $0 7 The big man will try to be Josh McCown's new Martellus Bennett in Tampa Bay. Expect late-season progress.
243  Marcel Reece RB $0 5 Reece will work as the fullback in Oakland's offense once again and get some use in the passing game.
244  Da'Rick Rogers WR $1 10 With Hilton, Wayne and Nicks ahead of him, Rogers does not warrant fantasy owners' attention on draft day.
245  Andre Roberts WR $1 10 Whoever emerges as the No. 3 receiver in Washington could have some value, and Roberts is the favorite.
246  Jermaine Kearse WR $1 4 Kearse benefits from a lack of receiving options in Seattle, which should help him take root as the No. 3 receiver.
247  Chris Polk RB $0 7 Polk sits third on the depth chart behind McCoy and Sproles, but loses Bryce Brown.
248  Brandon Bolden RB $0 10 Bolden played well last season, but drafting James White likely pushes Bolden to fourth on the depth chart.
249  Robert Turbin RB $0 4 With Lynch and Michael ahead of him, Turbin needs an injury or two to become fantasy worthy.
250  Davante Adams WR $1 9 This late in your draft, you might as well take a shot on a guy who plays in one of the league's best offenses.
251  Nate Burleson WR $1 4 Regardless of what happens with Josh Gordon, Burleson carries scant fantasy value into the season.
252  Marcedes Lewis TE $0 11 The veteran is on the downside of his career, but he's still one of Jacksonville's best bets near the goal line.
253  Donnie Avery WR $1 6 It's hard to trust anyone in the K.C. passing game, making Avery someone owners should ignore on draft day
254  Eddie Royal WR $1 10 Royal had a burst of fantasy value last year that evaporated quickly. He isn't significant in fantasy leagues.
255  Scott Chandler TE $0 9 Bills receivers, including Chandler, won't be great fantasy options until E.J. Manuel becomes more consistent.
256  Levine Toilolo TE $0 9 Taking over for Tony Gonzalez can't be easy, but the Falcons should work the 6-foot-8 Toilolo into the offense.
257  Daniel Thomas RB $0 5 Lost opportunities finally caught up with Thomas as he's shoved down the depth chart.
258  Robbie Gould K $1 9 Gould has added some range as he has gotten older, and is now tied to one of the league's best offenses.
259  Bobby Rainey RB $0 7 After totaling 566 rushing yards and five touchdowns last season, Rainey is now just a backup again.
260  Travis Kelce TE $0 6 After missing '13 after knee microfracture surgery, Kelce will have a freshman's body with a sophomore's brain.
261  Andrew Quarless TE $0 9 Not known for being a great receiver, Quarless will do his best to replace Jermichael Finley's talent.
262  Mohamed Sanu WR $1 4 Sanu has the size to be a weapon for Andy Dalton, but he has been passed by Marvin Jones on the depth chart.
263  Denard Robinson RB $0 11 Robinson impressed in his first season as a tailback, but he remains third on the Jaguars' depth chart.
264  Miami Dolphins DST $0 5 DE Cameron Wake remains one of the few defensive stars, making this unit good in certain matchups.
265  Ryan Williams RB $0 11 Murray is often injured, and the Cowboys don't have much experience lined up behind him.
266  Joseph Randle RB $0 11 Randle underwhelmed in his 2013 audition and now sits at the bottom of the depth chart in Indianapolis.
267  Derek Carr QB $1 5 The Raiders drafted Carr to be their quarterback of the future. Alas, that future does not begin in 2014.
268  Matt Cassel QB $1 10 Cassel may begin the year as the starter, but the Teddy Bridgewater clock is ticking very loudly.
269  Darrius Heyward-Bey WR $1 12 Heyward-Bey is part of a group of potential No. 3 receivers for the Steelers, but it's hard to believe in him.
270  Pittsburgh Steelers DST $0 12 After adding some youth, this unit is a great streaming option to start the season.
271  Mike James RB $0 7 James sparkled in starts last year after Martin went down, but he resumes his "forgotten" status in 2014.
272  Ryan Succop K $1 6 Succop made fewer than 80 percent of his attempts last year and really struggled from distance.
273  Jonathan Dwyer RB $0 4 After four seasons in Pittsburgh, Dwyer rejoins Bruce Arians in the desert as a backup running back again.
274  Storm Johnson RB $0 11 Johnson's a complete back without outstanding attributes who rejoins former UCF teammate Blake Bortles.
275  Tim Wright TE $0 7 An over-achieving rookie season was met with the Bucs signing Brandon Myers and drafting Seferian-Jenkins.
276  Lance Moore WR $1 12 Moore's marginal fantasy value was always based on his presence in New Orleans. Now in Pittsburgh, take a pass.
277  Chicago Bears DST $0 9 Bringing in Jared Allen and Lamarr Houston should help this defense return to at least average.
278  Dri Archer RB $0 12 Archer ran a 4.26 at the NFL combine and likely ranks as one of the fastest men in the league.
279  Martavis Bryant WR $1 12 The Steelers drafted Bryant out of Clemson in the fourth round this year. He's a guy to watch in training camp.
280  Allen Robinson WR $1 11 Based on the fact that someone has to catch passes in Jacksonville, Robinson could be worth a late pick.
281  Owen Daniels TE $0 11 Daniels is back with Gary Kubiak, who will run the offense in Baltimore, but he's second behind Pitta.
282  Buffalo Bills DST $0 9 Second only to the Panthers, the Bills recorded 57 sacks in 2013.
283  Adam Vinatieri K $1 10 At 41 years old, Vinatieri still has it. He made 35 field goals in 2013.
284  New Orleans Saints DST $0 6 The Saints added Jairus Byrd and Champ Bailey to an already solid pass defense for 2014.
285  Graham Gano K $1 12 Gano had a strong 2013 season, making 24-of-27 field goal attempts, including six from beyond 50.
286  Connor Barth K $1 7 Barth, who missed last year with a torn Achilles, made nine field goals of at least 50 yards in 2012.
287  Benny Cunningham RB $0 4 There's too much talent ahead of Cunningham in St. Louis for him to make a fantasy impact.
288  Chad Henne QB $1 11 Henne is merely keeping the seat warm for rookie QB Blake Bortles in Jacksonville.
289  Blake Bortles QB $1 11 Bortles should be starting in Jacksonville at some point, but that's not an offense in which owners should invest.
290  Jermaine Gresham TE $0 4 It's a contract season for Gresham, who will likely give way to second-year man Eifert in terms of targets.
291  Mychal Rivera TE $0 5 Keep an eye on Rivera, who after a QB carousel in 2013 now gets TE-friendly Matt Schaub throwing to him.
292  Brandon Pettigrew TE $0 9 The Lions' selection of Ebron in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft tells Pettigrew all he needs to know.
293  Jacoby Jones WR $1 11 Jones has never had a season with at least 600 yards and has reached 50 receptions just once.
294  Bilal Powell RB $0 11 Powell gets pushed further down the depth chart after the Jets signed Chris Johnson.
295  Jermichael Finley N/A TE $0 N/A Another player coming off of a major neck injury, Finley needs to find a team before a fantasy team finds him.
296  Travaris Cadet RB $0 6 Third-year man out of App. State could pick up some of touches formerly going to Sproles.
297  Ronnie Hillman RB $0 4 Once had a chance at starting, but couldn't protect Peyton Manning, and that's Rule No. 1 for Broncos RBs.
298  Brian Quick WR $1 4 Quick's competition at wide receiver in St. Louis isn't exactly stiff, so he could become fantasy-relevant.
299  Ace Sanders WR $1 11 The Jacksonville receiving corps is muddled, and that could create an opportunity for Sanders.
300  DuJuan Harris RB $0 9 Harris is third behind Lacy and Starks, and will likely need an injury to be relevant in most leagues.
