[originallink:10900201:1012622]

RANK NAME TEAM BYE AUCTION REC YD YPC 20+ 100-YD G TD TGT
1 Calvin JohnsonLions 9 $45 84 1,492 17.8 22 7 12 156
He's still the best at the position—but by an inch. The competition is as stiff as it has ever been for Megatron.
2 Brandon MarshallBears 9 $39 100 1,295 13 16 6 12 163
Numbers 2 through 7 could go almost any way; Marshall slots in here because of his consistency.
3 Demaryius ThomasBroncos 4 $38 92 1,430 15.5 19 6 14 143
Being Peyton Manning's top target has come with a huge upside for Marvin Harrison, Reggie Wayne and now Thomas.
4 A.J. GreenBengals 4 $38 98 1,426 14.6 18 6 11 180
The NFL's best leaper has two straight years with at least 97 catches, 1,350 yards and 11 touchdowns.
5 Julio JonesFalcons 9 $38 41 580 14.1 9 3 2 60
Jones averaged 14.1 fantasy points (fourth in the NFL) before suffering a season-ending right-foot injury in '13.
6 Jordy NelsonPackers 9 $35 85 1,314 15.5 22 5 8 126
His totals in the eight games Aaron Rodgers started and finished last year: 49 receptions for 810 yards and seven TDs.
7 Dez BryantCowboys 11 $35 93 1,233 13.3 14 4 13 160
His slotting here is less a reflection on Bryant than on the quality of the six guys ahead of him. He could play up.
8 Alshon JefferyBears 9 $31 89 1,421 16.0 20 5 7 150
In Year 2 he broke out, nearly quadrupling his catches and receiving yards. Could be even better in Year 3.
9 Antonio BrownSteelers 12 $30 110 1,499 13.6 23 5 8 165
His first season as the No. 1 option in Pittsburgh turned out to be a monster. Give him a boost in PPR leagues.
10 Randall CobbPackers 9 $28 31 433 14.0 6 2 4 46
Cobb is the 1A to Nelson's 1 in the Green Bay offense, and with A-Rod throwing, that's a great place to be.
11 Vincent JacksonBuccaneers 7 $26 78 1,224 15.7 19 4 7 159
V-Jax topped 1,200 yards with Mike Glennon at QB. He'll get even more mileage out of Josh McCown.
12 Pierre GarçonRedskins 10 $25 113 1,346 11.9 16 5 5 184
This year can only be better than last for the Washington offense, and Garçon will be a huge beneficiary.
13 Andre JohnsonTexans 10 $24 109 1,407 12.9 20 6 5 181
Johnson is unhappy in Houston, but all the guy does is produce. That said, his days as a WR1 are over.
14 Larry FitzgeraldCardinals 4 $24 82 954 11.6 11 2 10 136
The emergence of Michael Floyd helps Arizona but is a slight net negative for Fitz's fantasy production.
15 DeSean JacksonRedskins 10 $23 82 1,332 16.2 25 5 9 126
He brings a blazing element to the Washington O that it severely lacked and will form a fierce duo with Garçon.
16 Keenan AllenChargers 10 $23 71 1,046 14.7 16 5 8 105
Given the options at receiver, owners would be wise to take caution with Allen after his overachieving rookie year.
17 Victor CruzGiants 8 $22 73 998 13.7 10 4 4 123
Nothing went right for the Big Blue offense last season; Cruz never really had a chance.
18 Roddy WhiteFalcons 9 $22 63 711 11.3 8 2 3 99
He was hampered in '13 by a high ankle sprain, but 502 yards and two TDs in the last five weeks provide hope.
19 Wes WelkerBroncos 4 $21 73 778 10.7 12 0 10 110
His role is quite defined; he has a ceiling. But he could still be up for an increase in targets with Eric Decker leaving.
20 Michael FloydCardinals 4 $20 65 1,041 16.0 17 2 5 112
Solid as a rookie, he nearly doubled all his stats last season. He'll climb further in '14.
21 Michael Crabtree49ers 8 $20 19 284 14.9 3 1 1 33
One year after missing 11 games, he could lift the Niners' offense (and your fantasy team) if he stays healthy.
22 Kendall WrightTitans 9 $18 94 1,079 11.5 17 2 2 140
Wright had 10 games of at least eight targets last year, so bump him up on your cheat sheets in PPR leagues.
23 Torrey SmithRavens 11 $17 65 1,128 17.4 20 2 4 139
Steve Smith and a healthy Dennis Pitta should relieve some pressure, giving Torrey more room than ever to roam.
24 Jeremy Maclin*Eagles 7 $17 69 857 12.4 12 3 7 122
He lost last year to a torn right ACL, but he should be Nick Foles's No. 1 receiver with DeSean Jackson gone.
25 Cordarrelle PattersonVikings 10 $16 45 469 10.4 7 1 4 78
Patterson is undoubtedly an exciting playmaker. The problem: He will very likely be hampered by spotty QB play.
26 Marques ColstonSaints 6 $16 75 943 12.6 13 2 5 110
His production is declining, but Colston remains a strong fantasy choice as long as Drew Brees is at the helm.
27 T.Y. HiltonColts 10 $15 82 1,083 13.2 13 5 5 138
Deserving as he may be, it's hard to rank Hilton any higher until Andrew Luck progresses as a fantasy quarterback.
28 Percy HarvinSeahawks 4 $15 1 17 17.0 0 0 0 1
There's no doubt about what he can do if he's on the field. (See SB XLVIII.) But his health is always questionable.
29 Reggie WayneColts 10 $15 38 503 13.2 8 1 2 58
Make no mistake: Wayne will remain fantasy-relevant until he's behind a podium announcing his retirement.
30 Julian EdelmanPatriots 10 $14 105 1,056 10.1 9 4 6 151
Even with a healthy Gronk, Edelman should approach 130 targets and 100 receptions. That value will go oft-overlooked.
31 Eric DeckerJets 11 $14 87 1,288 14.8 19 5 11 137
Life won't be nearly as fun without Peyton Manning behind those passes, but Decker can still be a fantasy starter.
32 Emmanuel SandersBroncos 4 $12 67 740 11.0 12 0 6 112
The new No. 3 in Denver—Decker's replacement—should find Manning and the Mile High environment to his liking.
