Preseason fantasy football
ratings, with last year's statistics and comments:
1. Peyton Manning, Indianapolis: 4,397 yards
passing, 31 touchdowns, 9 interceptions, 4 TDs
rushing. With that pesky Super Bowl ring out
of way, he can get back to piling up ridiculous
2. Carson Palmer, Cincinnati: 4,035 yards, 28
TDs, 13 INTs. Injury is no longer concern after
he started every game last year. Plus, most skill
position players are back without legal problems.
3. Drew Brees, New Orleans: 4,418 yards, 26
TDs, 11 INTs. Big surprise of 2006 tailed off
at end of season, but he's healthy and has full
year of experience in Sean Payton's offense.
4. Tom Brady, New England: 3,529 yards, 24 TDs,
12 INTs. He only had three 300-yard games last
year, but numbers should jump after Patriots
bought receivers in bulk. Randy Moss and Donte'
Stallworth could be huge weapons (or just sulky
5. Marc Bulger, St. Louis: 4,301 yards, 24 TDs,
8 INTs. Posted career highs in yards and TDs,
plus finally played 16 games in his first year
away from Mike Martz's blocker-free scheme. Additions
of WR Drew Bennett and TE Randy McMichael should
6. Donovan McNabb, Philadelphia: 2,647 yards,
18 TDs, 6 INTs, 3 TDs rushing. Big numbers are
probable, but so is injury. He's missed 13 games
the past two years and has only played a full
season once since 2001. So enjoy the stats, but
keep the backup ready.
7. Vince Young, Tennessee: 2,199 yards, 12 TDs,
13 INTs, 552 yards rushing, 7 TDs rushing. Rookie
of Year single-handedly kept Titans in contention
much longer than they should have been. Will
be working solo again after Tennessee ditched
all the other skill players.
8. Tony Romo, Dallas: 2,903 yards, 19 TDs, 13
INTs. Only has 10 NFL starts, and new offensive
coaches combined last year to coach Joey Harrington,
Daunte Culpepper, Cleo Lemon and Rex Grossman.
But he was a Pro Bowl pick and has solid receivers
- and he won't hold on kicks anymore.
9. Jon Kitna, Detroit: 4,208 yards, 21 TDs,
22 INTs, 2 TDs rushing. Beefed up line, Roy Williams-Calvin
Johnson-Mike Furrey combo, Martz offense and
cocky 10-win prediction make him hard to resist.
(Just resist taking him too early.)
10. Philip Rivers, San Diego: 3,388 yards, 22
TDs, 9 INTS. A year of experience and the arrival
of QB guru Norv Turner could mean big jump in
numbers. Or it could mean Rivers just hands off
11. J.P. Losman, Buffalo: 3,051 yards, 19 TDs,
14 INTS, 1 TD run. Longtime fantasy football
punchline is suddenly legit. He had a few 300-yard
games and a few three-TD games last season, and
the Bills actually went out and bought themselves
an offensive line.
12. Matt Hasselbeck, Seattle: 2,442 yards, 18
TDs, 15 INTs. He missed four games to injury
and missed plenty of open receivers when he did
play. Should be back over 20 TDs, but even when
healthy he's always just been above-average fantasy
13. Eli Manning, NY Giants: 3,244 yards, 24
TDs, 18 INTs. Is this the year he goes nuts?
Or the year we finally accept the fact he's an
erratic turnover machine and not another Peyton?
14. Jay Cutler, Denver: 1,001 yards, 9 TDs,
5 INTs. Numbers should really take off now that
Jake Plummer's no longer teaching him things.
New RB Travis Henry also should relieve some
15. Jake Delhomme, Carolina: 2,805 yards, 17
TDs, 11 INTs. Even with a new offensive coordinator
and plenty of weapons, don't trust him as anything
but a backup until he proves himself. (Oh, and
sorry to anyone who drafted him based on my glowing
reviews last year.)
16. Alex Smith, San Francisco: 2,890 yards,
16 TDs, 16 INTS, 2 TDs rushing. TDs last year
were up 15 from his disastrous one-score rookie
season. New WRs will help, though team's on fifth
offensive coordinator in five years.
17. Matt Leinart, Arizona: 2,541 yards, 11 TDs,
12 INTs, 2 TDs rushing. Showed big signs of figuring
out the NFL as a rookie, but not expected to
throw as much in new run-heavy system.
18. Ben Roethlisberger, Pittsburgh: 3,513 yards,
18 TDs, 23 INTs, 2 TDs rushing. Barring motorcycle
crashes and surprise organ removal, he might
even throw to guys on his own team.
19. Michael Vick, Atlanta: 2,474 yards, 20 TDs,
13 INTs, 1,039 yards rushing, 2 TDs. Nothing
like a dogfighting indictment to send you plummeting
down the rankings. Could be looking at suspension
20. Rex Grossman, Chicago: 3,193 yards, 23 TDs,
20 INTs. Good Rex is so good, but Bad Rex is
so very, very bad. Playing his first full season,
he had 21 touchdowns and two interceptions in
10 games. In the other six, he had two TDs and
21. Matt Schaub, Houston: 208 yards, TD, 2 INTs.
Maybe he's the next Brett Favre, also a little-used
backup before Atlanta traded him. Or maybe he's
the next Rob Johnson, who was traded away and
then became a little-used backup.
22. Jason Campbell, Washington: 1,297 yards,
10 TDS, 6 INTs, 112 yards rushing. Put together
some decent stats in seven games, and having
both Clinton Portis and Ladell Betts could open
23. Brett Favre, Green Bay: 3,885 yards, 18
TD passes, 18 INTs, 1 TD rushing. The Packers
celebrated Favre's return for one more season
by ... doing nothing. Look for him again to throw
exclusively to Donald Driver and whoever's covering
24. Jeff Garcia, Tampa Bay: 1,309 yards, 10
TDs, 2 INTs. He's only good in the West Coast
offense so could excel under West Coast master
Jon Gruden. Then again, there's probably a reason
why the 37-year-old's on his fifth team in five
25. Chad Pennington, NY Jets: 3,352 yards, 17
TDs, 16 INTs. The good news is, he's really consistent.
The bad news: He's consistently good for one
TD a game. Handoff stats should go way up with
Thomas Jones on board.
26. Byron Leftwich, Jacksonville: 1,159 yards,
7 TDs, 5 INTS, 2 TDs rushing. He's never played
16 games or surpassed 3,000 yards or 15 touchdowns.
But he says he's perfectly healthy, and new offensive
coordinator's known for high-scoring attacks.
27. Josh McCown, Oakland: 0 yards, 0 TDs. Maybe
worth late pick in case he does something before
rookie JaMarcus Russell takes over. Raiders did
patch up line that allowed NFL-worst 72 sacks
28. JaMarcus Russell, Oakland: Rookie. Worth
late pick if you want to tuck him away for later.
29. Steve McNair, Baltimore: 3,050 yards, 16
TDs, 12 INTs, 1 TD rushing. He didn't throw much
before the Ravens landed a good RB, so look for
lots more handoffs.
30. Trent Green, Miami: 1,342 yards, 7 TDs,
9 INTs. He's 37 and was known last year mostly
as the guy whose skull bounced off the turf.
Averaged about 4,000 yards and 22 TDs the five
previous seasons, though.
31. Tarvaris Jackson, Minnesota: 475 yards,
2 TDs, 4 INTs, 1 TD rushing. Didn't show a lot
while learning Minnesota's TD-free scheme. He's
great if your league awards extra points for
32. David Carr, Carolina: 2,767 yards, 11 TDs,
12 INTs, 2 rushing TDs. Worth late gamble, in
case Delhomme out-underachieves him.
1. LaDainian Tomlinson, San Diego: 1,815 yards
and 28 TDs rushing (5.2 yards per carry), 508
yards and 3 TDs receiving, 2 TD passes. May never
post such ridiculous numbers again, but anywhere
remotely close could bring fantasy title.
2. Steven Jackson, St. Louis: 1,528 yards and
13 TDs rushing (4.4 yards per carry), 806 yards
and 3 TDs receiving. Turns out he's pretty good
when he actually gets the ball. Averaged about
180 yards from scrimmage and scored eight times
in final three games.
3. Frank Gore, San Francisco: 1,695 yards and
8 TDs rushing (5.4 yards per carry), 485 yards
and 1 TD receiving. He'll continue to be whole
offense, maybe even more now that coordinator
Norv Turner's gone.
4. Willie Parker, Pittsburgh: 1,494 yards and
13 TDs rushing (4.4 yards per carry), 222 yards
and 3 TDs receiving. Proved last year that he
can handle heavy load and still break away for
long run here and there. Should catch more passes,
5. Joseph Addai, Indianapolis: 1,081 yards and
7 TDs rushing (4.8 yards per carry), 325 yards
and 1 TD receiving. Is he really fifth-best back?
As long as he's not sharing time, he could easily
pile up numbers like the Edgerrin James of yesteryear.
6. Larry Johnson, Kansas City: 1,789 yards and
17 TDs rushing (4.3 yards per carry), 410 yards
and 2 TDs receiving. Ranking him this low seems
obscene, unless you consider he may hold out,
has a questionable offensive line and no QB -
and guys who carry the ball a million times tank
the next year.
7. Shaun Alexander, Seattle: 896 yards and 7
TDs rushing (3.6 yards per carry), 48 yards receiving.
He's a high-mileage 30-year-old coming off injury.
If you think he can return to monster numbers
of a few years ago, take him earlier.
8. Brian Westbrook, Philadelphia: 1,217 yards
and 7 TDs rushing (5.1 yards per carry), 699
yards and 4 TDs receiving. Durability, schmurability.
Sure, the 5-foot-8 back never plays all 16 games,
but he's put in at least 12 the past three years.
9. Rudi Johnson, Cincinnati: 1,309 yards and
12 TDs rushing (3.8 yards per carry), 124 yards
receiving. Yet another heavy workload was good
for third straight 12-TD season in 2006, but
he also had lowest average per carry of career.
10. Travis Henry, Denver: 1,211 yards and 7
TDs rushing (4.5 yards per carry), 78 yards receiving.
After vanishing for a few years, posted career-high
yards per carry last season while proving he
can still carry load. And for once everybody
knows Denver's starter before September.
11. Laurence Maroney, New England: 745 yards
and 6 TDs rushing (4.3 yards per carry), 194
yards and 1 TD receiving. Made most of his touches
last year, and now he won't share time. He did
get nicked up, but this is guy who went for 1,400
yards and 10 TDs a year in college.
12. Ronnie Brown, Miami: 1,008 yards and 5 TDs
rushing (4.2 yards per carry), 276 yards receiving.
Wasn't he supposed to go nuts with Ricky Williams
out of the picture? He was pretty pedestrian,
although defenses weren't exactly respecting
Cleo Lemon and other Miami passers.
13. Willis McGahee, Baltimore: 990 yards and
6 TDs rushing (3.8 yards per carry), 156 yards
receiving. He's turned in his fair share of clunkers
and has never caught a TD pass, but he's in system
that actually got production from Jamal Lewis.
14. Reggie Bush, New Orleans: 565 yards and
6 TDs rushing (3.6 yards per carry), 742 yards
and 2 TDs receiving. Got off to shaky rookie
year, but had TD or 100 yards in four of last
five games. (Take him higher if your league awards
points for receptions.)
15. Clinton Portis, Washington: 523 yards and
7 TDs rushing (4.1 yards per carry), 170 yards
receiving. Assorted injuries, plus emergence
of Ladell Betts have knocked him down a few notches.
16. Thomas Jones, NY Jets: 1,210 yards and 6
TDs rushing, 154 yards receiving. For some reason,
the Bears never really liked this guy who always
went for 1,200 yards. The Jets like him plenty
as their No. 1 back.
17. Cedric Benson, Chicago: 647 yards and 6
TDs rushing (4.1 yards per carry), 54 yards receiving.
After two years marked by bench-warming and injury,
he finally gets shot as featured back.
18. Marshawn Lynch, Buffalo: Rookie. In addition
to having original parts in his knees, Lynch
is much better receiver than McGahee. Bills are
even planning to block.
19. Edgerrin James, Arizona: 1,159 yards and
6 TDs rushing (3.4 yards per carry), 217 yards
receiving. A few nice games in December salvaged
otherwise awful desert debut. Now has better
line and run-first offense.
20. Deuce McAllister, New Orleans: 1,057 yards
and 10 TDs rushing (4.3 yards per carry), 198
yards receiving. Somehow had nice numbers while
sharing time, but you wonder if he can do that
21. Brandon Jacobs, NY Giants: 423 yards and
9 TDs rushing (4.4 yards per carry), 149 yards
receiving. The 264-pound steamroller gets chance
to do more than plow through for 1-yard TDs.
Brutal running style could mean injury, so also
draft Reuben Droughns.
22. Maurice Jones-Drew, Jacksonville: 941 yards
and 13 TDs rushing (5.7 yards per carry), 436
yards and 2 TDs receiving. Really, is 5-foot-7
fireplug going to score 15 TDs again sharing
time in crowded backfield? He may, but it's hard
to spend high pick on part-timer.
23. Marion Barber, Dallas: 654 yards and 14
TDs rushing (4.8 yards per carry), 196 yards
and 2 TDs receiving. See above. He averaged 10
touches a game, but still managed a TD a game.
Can you really expect that again?
24. Carnell Williams, Tampa Bay: 798 yards and
1 TD rushing (3.5 yards per carry), 196 yards
receiving. He was master of 40-yard game last
year, but a decent QB should help him find space.
Until then, he's just Carnell - the ``Cadillac''
nickname has been repossessed.
25. Jamal Lewis, Cleveland: 1,132 yards and
9 TDs rushing (3.6 yards per carry), 115 yards
receiving. Yards per carry have dropped dramatically
since 2,000-yard season, but his patented tiptoe-then-fall
move is actually an upgrade for Cleveland.
26. Ahman Green, Houston: 1,059 yards and 5
TDs rushing (4.0 yards per carry), 373 yards
and 1 TD receiving. 30-year-old rebounded from
injury and had decent year on lousy offense.
Now he gets chance to be decent for different
27. Adrian Peterson, Minnesota: Rookie. Time-sharing
arrangement with Chester Taylor may last until
Peterson's first 80-yard run. Take him first
if you want long-term value, though Taylor looks
like better short-term pick.
28. Tatum Bell, Detroit: 1,025 yards and 2 TDs
rushing (4.4 yards per carry), 115 yards receiving.
Most likely RB to excel in Martz's system, though
backfield picture's muddled if Kevin Jones actually
returns from foot injury.
29. Chester Taylor, Minnesota: 1,216 yards and
6 TDs rushing (4.0 yards per carry) and 288 yards
receiving. Eventually wore down while piling
up career stats. Still could be effective in
30. Julius Jones, Dallas: 1,084 yards and 4
TDs rushing (4.1 yards per carry), 142 yards
receiving. Role got smaller and TDs less frequent
as last season wore on. Contract year won't help
him get goal-line carries.
31. Ladell Betts, Washington: 1,154 yards and
4 TDs rushing (4.7 yards per carry), 445 yards
and 1 TD receiving. He's a must if you take Portis,
but also worth late-round pick to steal him from
whoever has Portis.
32. DeShaun Foster, Carolina: 897 yards and
3 TDs rushing (4.0 yards per carry), 159 yards
receiving. He's actually been fairly healthy
past few years, he's an infrequent end zone visitor
who shares a job.
33. DeAngelo Williams, Carolina: 501 yards and
1 TD rushing (4.1 yards per carry), 313 yards
and 1 TD receiving. He produces every time he
gets touches, but role's uncertain until Foster
34. Fred Taylor, Jacksonville: 1,146 yards and
5 TDs rushing (5.0 yards per carry), 242 yards
and 1 TD receiving. Is there a less interesting
1,100-yard back out there? He's 31 and sharing
time with all sorts of guys.
35. LaMont Jordan, Oakland: 434 yards and 2
TDs rushing (3.8 yards per carry), 74 yards receiving.
He's not much to get excited about, but he's
the starter for at least four weeks thanks to
Dominic Rhodes' suspension.
36. Jerious Norwood, Atlanta: 633 yards and
2 TDs rushing (6.4 yards per carry), 102 yards
receiving. Still not clear who'll get most carries
in new offense, but Norwood's more explosive
than elderly Warrick Dunn.
37. Vernand Morency, Green Bay: 434 yards and
2 TDs rushing (4.5 yards per carry), 118 yards
receiving. Not clear heading into camp how much
of load he'll carry and how much will go to rookie
38. Chris Henry, Tennessee: Rookie. First of
all, he's not the suspended guy named Chris Henry.
And Chris Brown didn't change his name. Neither
did Travis Henry. Chris Henry's a rookie who
could start, or end up in a three-way time share.
39. Brandon Jackson, Green Bay: Rookie. Second-round
pick could get plenty of action. He didn't get
many carries last year at Nebraska, but had four
100-yard games when he did.
40. Reuben Droughns, NY Giants: 758 yards and
4 TDs rushing (3.4 yards per carry), 169 yards
receiving. Free from Cleveland's blocking-optional
scheme, Droughns should back up Jacobs in the
always odd 500-pound backfield.
41. Warrick Dunn, Atlanta: 1,140 yards and 4
TDs rushing (4.0 yards per carry), 170 yards
and 1 TD receiving. He's small and 32, but he's
gone over 1,100 yards and played every game the
past three seasons.
42. Adrian Peterson, Chicago: 41 yards and 2
TDs rushing (4.7 yards per carry), 88 yards receiving.
If Benson's a bust, he could be the best Adrian
Peterson going this year.
43. Mike Bell, Denver: 677 yards and 8 TDs rushing
(4.3 yards per carry), 158 yards receiving. Remember
this guy? He was the next big deal in Denver
at least a couple times last year. Now he's just
good insurance if you have Henry.
44. Michael Turner, San Diego: 502 yards and
2 TDs rushing (6.3 yards per carry), 47 yards
receiving. The 240-pound bruiser had a three-year
career average of 6.0 yards a carry. A must if
you also have Tomlinson.
45. Anthony Thomas, Buffalo: 378 yards and 2
TDs rushing (3.5 yards per carry). Could be steal
if Lynch doesn't live up to expectations.
46. Ron Dayne, Houston: 612 yards and 5 TDs
rushing (4.1 yards per carry), 77 yards receiving.
Could be worth late gamble considering short-yardage
potential and Green's age and fragility.
47. Sammy Morris, New England: 400 yards and
1 TD rushing (4.3 yards per carry), 162 yards
receiving. Could be steal if Maroney gets hurt.
48. Lendale White, Tennessee: 244 yards, 0 TDs
(4.0 yards per carry). Other than hamstring injury,
fattening up to about 260 pounds and missing
team workout, it was great offseason.
49. Chris Brown, Tennessee: 156 yards rushing
(3.8 yards per carry), 4 yards receiving. Lack
of free agency interest could mean he's had it,
or could mean Titans are desperate. Or both.
50. Dominic Rhodes, Oakland: 641 yards and 5
TDs rushing (3.4 yards per carry), 251 yards
receiving. Starting season with four-game suspension,
he could be the latest Super Bowl hero to flop
in Oakland. (See Larry Brown, Desmond Howard.)
1. Steve Smith, Carolina: 1,166 yards and 8
TDs receiving, 61 yards and 1 TD rushing. I'm
not sold on his durability, and his QB tends
to throw lots of passes at grass, but he did
catch over 100 balls last time he was healthy.
2. Marvin Harrison, Indianapolis: 1,366 yards,
12 TDs. He's old, but somehow defies nature and
piles up at least 10 scores and 1,100 yards every
year. Not sure why his stats should be much worse
at 35 years old than they were at 34.
3. Torry Holt, St. Louis: 1,188 yards, 10 TDs.
It was kind of an off year for him and he still
had 10 scores. Look for eighth-straight 1,100-yard
season as Bulger gets more comfortable in Scott
4. Chad Johnson, Cincinnati: 1,369 yards, 7
TDs. Vanished late in season, but you can't beat
his consistency over past four years, averaging
92 catches, 1,360 yards and nine TDs. Chris Henry's
suspension should help stats.
5. Reggie Wayne, Indianapolis: 1,310 yards,
9 TDs. He may be technically the No. 2, but his
numbers are like most No. 1 receivers. Receptions
have gone up each of past three seasons.
6. Terrell Owens, Dallas: 1,180 yards, 13 TDs.
Somehow, when he wasn't busy providing an endless
supply of talk radio blather, he managed to put
up big stats last year. He's another guy whose
age (34 in December) you have to ignore.
7. Roy Williams, Detroit: 1,310 yards, 7 TDs.
Should find plenty of open spaces if rookie Calvin
Johnson is as freakish as he seems, though you
wonder if he may also lose some catches.
8. Javon Walker, Denver: 1,084 yards and 8 TDs
receiving, 123 yards and 1 TD rushing. He didn't
really click with Cutler in their five games
together, but Cutler's no longer a panicked rookie.
9. Lee Evans, Buffalo: 1,292 yards, 8 TDs. Wildly
inconsistent at times, but he closed strong,
with TDs in his final four games. Plus - and
I can't believe I'm saying this - Losman could
have big year.
10. Marques Colston, New Orleans: 1,038 yards,
8 TDs. Had some injuries and hit rookie wall,
but 6-foot-4 Colston was dominant. Question is
whether he's injury prone. (He missed junior
year at Hofstra with shoulder injury.)
11. Larry Fitzgerald, Arizona: 946 yards, 6
TDs. He's ranked this low because team wants
to run ball a lot more. He's ranked this high
because the Cardinals often can't do what they
12. Donald Driver, Green Bay: 1,295 yards, 8
TDs. His team is lousy, his QB is on last leg,
and he's going to be focus of every defense.
But how do you argue with three straight 1,200-yard
13. Randy Moss, New England: 553 yards, 3 TDs.
Forget the disaster in Oakland. He should be
back to his high-flying, TD-machine ways. Unless
he doesn't feel like it.
14. Plaxico Burress, NY Giants: 988 yards, 10
TDs. He always makes most of those times when
Manning's passes are kind of catchable. But getting
open may not be so easy in the post-Tiki offense.
15. T.J. Houshmandzadeh, Cincinnati: 1,081 yards,
9 TDs. A reliable target when Johnson's covered,
he caught seven or more passes in eight games.
16. Anquan Boldin, Arizona: 1,203 yards, 4 TDs.
Averages about 95 catches and 1,300 yards in
his three healthy seasons, but you'd like to
see TDs now and then. (He had just one in last
17. Andre Johnson, Houston: 1,147 yards, 5 TDs.
Numbers should jump with addition of Schaub at
QB because the Texans' record of personnel moves
shows ... Oh, never mind. Still, Johnson produced
with David Carr and no line, so things shouldn't
18. Hines Ward, Pittsburgh: 975 yards, 6 TDs.
Offense should still feature plenty of running,
but that never stopped him before. (It was all
Roethlesberger's passes to defenders that slowed
him last year.)
19. Calvin Johnson, Detroit: Rookie. Last time
there was big talk about a freakish 6-foot-4
rookie it was Randy Moss, who went for 1,300
yards and 17 TDs in his first year.
20. Reggie Brown, Philadelphia: 816 yards and
8 TDs receiving, 24 yards and 1 TD rushing. He's
main guy in Philadelphia with Stallworth gone.
21. Darrell Jackson, San Francisco: 956 yards,
10 TDs. Has been beat up past few years, but
could end up focus of 49ers' passing attack.
Still, you wonder why team would trade 10-TD
guy to divisional rival.
22. Laveranues Coles, NY Jets: 1,098 yards,
6 TDs. Had decent year but vanished a lot, with
seven games of 40 or fewer yards. Emergence of
Jerricho Cotchery and arrival of Thomas Jones
23. Devery Henderson, New Orleans: 745 yards
and 5 TDs receiving, 14 yards and 1 TD rushing.
Burner doesn't catch many passes, but they all
seem to go for 75 yards.
24. Braylon Edwards, Cleveland: 884 yards, 6
TDs. Had decent numbers considering his team
had no QB or line. Should benefit from all the
third-and-7 situations Jamal Lewis creates.
25. Mark Clayton, Baltimore: 939 yards, 5 TDs.
Seems on verge of breakout year, but breakout
would be much more inviting if team liked to
26. Vincent Jackson, San Diego: 453 yards, 6
TDs. 6-foot-5 WR should also see a lot more passes
in Turner's system. Finished with three TDs in
final two games.
27. Joey Galloway, Tampa Bay: 1,057 yards, 7
TDs. Old as dirt (36 in November), but he has
17 TDs the past two seasons. Will make a fearsome
geriatric duo with Garcia.
28. Donte' Stallworth, New England: 725 yards,
5 TDs. Known as injury prone, but four games
missed last year are only absences since 2003.
Plus, Pats aren't going to sign a fragile free
29. Jerricho Cotchery, NY Jets: 961 yards, 6
TDs. Was huge in first year as starter, but more
running could hurt value.
30. Deion Branch, Seattle: 725 yards, 4 TDs,
30 yards rushing. Has never cracked 1,000 yards
or had more than 5 TDs, but has had lots of work
as Hasselbeck's primary target.
31. Santana Moss, Washington: 790 yards and
6 TDs receiving, 82 yards rushing. Speedster
vanished often last year, catching three or fewer
passes in eight of 14 games he played.
32. Chris Chambers, Miami: 677 yards and 4 TDs
receiving, 95 yards rushing. Had worst season
in his career with Cleo Lemon and Daunte Culpepper
lofting passes in his general direction. Should
be getting a call from commissioner soon after
33. Bernard Berrian, Chicago: 775 yards, 6 TDs.
Got off to fast start last year, but wasn't heard
from after October. Erratic Grossman devalues
him a bit.
34. Matt Jones, Jacksonville: 643 yards, 4 TDs.
Everybody's sleeper last year slept through most
of season, but finally produced big in December.
35. Mike Furrey, Detroit: 1,086 yards, 6 TDs.
Really, is anyone expecting him to lead league
in receptions again? Catches will fall off unless
Johnson's a total flop.
36. Terry Glenn, Dallas: 1,047 yards, 6 TDs.
Decent for an old guy, but Owens will probably
hog all the scores again. (And how many middle-age
guys from one team can you rank very high?)
37. Jerry Porter, Oakland: 1 catch, 19 yards.
His personal nemesis is no longer the coach and
Moss is no longer lobbying for every pass. Then
again, can any Raiders throw?
38. D.J. Hackett, Seattle: 610 yards, 4 TDs.
Career backup gets big chance with Jackson gone
and Hasselbeck healthy.
39. Greg Jennings, Green Bay: 632 yards, 3 TDs.
Had some decent games last year, but faded after
injuries and Favre's realization he was throwing
to someone not named Driver.
40. Santonio Holmes, Pittsburgh: 824 yards,
2 TDs. Averaged 80 yards a game after moving
into starting lineup for final four games of
41. Joe Horn, Atlanta: 679 yards, 4 TDs. Injuries
and age have rendered him useless to fantasy
teams the past few years, but take him late for
old times' sake.
42. Kevin Curtis, Philadelphia: 479 yards, 4
TDs. Will see much more action than when he was
third or fourth Rams receiver. (At least until
McNabb gets hurt.)
43. Isaac Bruce, St. Louis: 1,098 yards, 3 TDs.
Ancient No. 2 receiver will still catch fair
amount of passes, but he's quit scoring TDs and
could lose time to new third receiver Drew Bennett.
44. Arnaz Battle, San Francisco: 686 yards,
3 TDs. Started clicking with Smith late in season,
with two scores in final three games.
45. Anthony Gonzalez, Indianapolis: Rookie.
Should jump right in as third receiver.
46. Dwayne Jarrett, Carolina: Rookie. Former
USC star such a good, young version of Keyshawn
Johnson that Panthers got rid of the old version.
47. Drew Bennett, St. Louis: 737 yards, 3 TDs.
6-foot-5 possession receiver been awfully quiet
in two years since his 1,200-yard season (which
is looking flukier than ever as time passes).
48. Eric Parker, San Diego: 659 yards, 0 TDs.
Would like him even more if he'd scored a TD
more recently than 2005, but should have bigger
role with Keenan McCardell gone and 11 defenders
focusing on Tomlinson.
49. Michael Clayton, Tampa Bay: 356 yards, TD.
Has yet to surpass 400 yards in two seasons since
going for 1,100 as a rookie. Maybe all he needed
the whole time was Garcia.
50. Robert Meacham, New Orleans: Rookie. Before
penciling him as next Colston, remember he has
a bum knee. (And also that Colston's a freak.)
1. Antonio Gates, San Diego: 924 yards receiving,
9 TDs. The Peyton Manning of tight ends.
2. Tony Gonzalez, Kansas City: 900 yards, 5
TDs. Proved last year he doesn't need QB to catch
3. Alge Crumpler, Atlanta: 780 yards, 8 TDs.
Vick has to throw to somebody, doesn't he?
4. Todd Heap, Baltimore: 765 yards, 6 TDs. Always
going to catch about 75 passes and six TDs.
5. L.J. Smith, Philadelphia: 611 yards, 5 TDs.
McNabb loves this big target.
6. Kellen Winslow, Cleveland: 875 yards, 3 TDs.
Move him up if your league awards points for
7. Jeremy Shockey, NY Giants: 623 yards, 7 TDs.
Make sure he's totally healthy.
8. Jason Witten, Dallas: 754 yards, TD. Should
score in the plurals in new scheme.
9. Heath Miller, Pittsburgh: 393 yards, 5 TDs.
New offense should help yardage.
10. Chris Cooley, Washington: 734 yards, 6 TDs.
Not sure anybody outside D.C. knows what he looks
like, but he's steady scorer.
11. Vernon Davis, San Francisco: 265 yards,
3 TDs. If healthy, big target will be big help
12. Benjamin Watson, New England: 643 yards,
3 TDs. Patriots spread it around, especially
with all the new receivers.
13. Randy McMichael, St. Louis: 640 yards, 3
TDs. Ball will be spread around with Rams.
14. Dallas Clark, Indianapolis: 367 yards, 4
TDs. Low yardage, but he's a Colt.
15. Chris Baker, NY Jets: 300 yards, 4 TDs.
Always good for big game or two.
16. Bo Scaife, Tennessee: 370 yards, 2 TDs.
One of few Titans receivers who have been to
17. Jerramy Stevens, Tampa Bay: 231 yards, 4
TDs. Gets change of scenery Seahawks wanted him
18. Jermaine Wiggins, Jacksonville: 386 yards,
TD. Didn't do much last year in Vikings system
that frowns on passing.
19. Desmond Clark, Chicago: 626 yards, 6 TDs.
Vanished late in season, and arrival of rookie
Greg Olsen should hurt.
20. Daniel Graham, Denver: 235 yards, 2 TDs.
Could be big help to Cutler.
1. Baltimore. Led league in total defense, interceptions,
scoring, TD runs allowed (5). I guess what I'm
trying to say is, the Ravens are pretty good.
2. New England. Allowed ridiculous 10 TD passes
and added Adalius Thomas.
3. Chicago. Lost a few players, but core remains
from team that led league in turnovers.
4. San Diego. Led league in combined number
of sacks and interceptions.
5. Miami. Joey Porter and Jason Taylor together
can be scary.
6. Pittsburgh. Always tough, and new coach is
former defensive coordinator.
7. Minnesota. Brutal run defense, but TD passes
allowed with regularity.
8. Jacksonville. Not much changed from last
year's solid roster.
9. Dallas. Was pretty good before defensive-minded
head coach arrived.
10. Philadelphia. Takeo Spikes added to pressure
defense that always scores.
11. Green Bay. Somehow No. 2 in combined sacks
12. Denver. This time Broncos overhauled without
just hiring the Cleveland defense.
13. Carolina. Weren't that bad while underachieving
14. New Orleans. Didn't do a lot in free agency,
but decent vs. pass last year.
15. Seattle. Patrick Kerney should be good for
10 more sacks.
16. Oakland. Led league in pass defense, got
usual big haul of free agents.
17. Kansas City. Herm Edwards counts for something,
18. Buffalo. Decent number of sacks.
19. Tampa Bay. Tried to shore up mess through
draft. Plus, it's cool there's a whole defensive
scheme named after Tampa.
20. New York Jets. Not terrible, which is what
you're looking for in No. 20 defense.
1. Robbie Gould, Chicago: 32 field goals, 143
2. Nate Kaeding, San Diego: 26 FGs, 136 points.
3. Jeff Wilkins, St. Louis: 32 FGs, 131 points.
