Thomas will kick off the 2013 season in a big way, catching eight balls for 121 yards and two scores. He'll score the first touchdown of the season on a 32-yard strike from Peyton Manning.
Everything is set up for Brown's breakout season in Pittsburgh. As the focal point of the passing game, he'll end the season as a top-12 receiver, and will get it started Week 1 against the Titans.
A foot injury limited Garcon, but he was a top-15 receiver when healthy. If Griffin throws more and runs less this year, Garcon will be the primary beneficiary. He has breakout potential in 2013.
Jones has been the No. 1 receiver in Atlanta in the minds of fantasy owners for at least a year, but this is the season it will finally show on the field. It all starts against the Saints.
For some reason, a large portion of the fantasy community has made a habit of avoiding Johnson. They'll pay for it again this season.
Amendola and Tom Brady are a perfect match for one another, and as long as the former can stay healthy, he'll be among the most productive receivers in the league.
Johnson : Other Receivers :: Adrian Peterson : Other Running Backs. Somehow, Johnson had just five touchdowns last year. The best season of his career is right on the horizon.
Nelson struggled with a knee injury last year and this preseason, but he's the one player on this offense who is a threat down the field and in the red zone. He'll be the team's best receiver this year.
What hip injury? All the bluster at the end of the preseason proves to be nothing more than a competitive guy blowing off some steam. Marshall starts 2013 looking just like the dominant fantasy receiver he was in 2012.
White remains a reliable, prolific target for Matt Ryan. That won't change against one of the friendliest secondaries in the league.
The most damning statstic for Arizona's quarterbacks last year? Fitzgerald caught just 71 of the 156 passes thrown his way. He'll again be the Fitz we all know in 2013.
With Alex Smith in place of Matt Cassel and Brady Quinn, Bowe will once again be a reliable second receiver in fantasy leagues. He'll get touchdown No. 1 of the season on Sunday.
Hilton had the best year of any rookie receiver in 2012, and he looks poised to build on that as he and Andrew Luck could be the league's next great receiver-quarterback duo.
Cruz is expected to play Sunday after suffering a bruised heel during the preseason. Only injuries can keep him out of the top 10 at the position.
If you believe in Michael Vick, you have to believe in Jackson. The former can't have a big year without the latter. They'll bring back memories of 2009 on Monday.
Johnson is a perennially underrated receiver, but it'll be tough sledding for him on Sunday. He's still a weekly starter in most leagues, though.
Smith was being drafted as a WR3 this summer, but he had more than 1,100 yards last season and plays with one of the best quarterbacks in the league. Picking him may seem boring, but he could prove to be a huge steal.
Decker will finish with the fewest catches among the great receiving triumvirate in Denver this week, but he'll find the end zone on a 19-yard hookup with Peyton Manning.
Austin didn't get a ton of respect during draft season, but he could easily be a weekly starter if he stays healthy. He always seems to play well against the Giants.
Floyd's rookie year was wasted, thanks to the terrible trio of quarterbacks started by the Cardinals in 2012. He's a prime sleeper candidate who will get off to a nice start this season.
Williams is somehow one of the most underrated receivers in the league. He has had at least 950 yards and nine touchdowns in two of his three seasons.
With Pitta out and Anquan Boldin in San Francisco, much of the receiving burden will fall to Smith. He'll make good on that -- at least for his fantasy owners -- against the Broncos.
Colston will put any fears about his foot to rest right off the bat Week 1, catching Drew Brees' first touchdown pass of the season. Get ready for a big season.
Depending on the depth of your league, Tate could be a starter with Percy Harvin out. He'll get this season off to a good start this week.
Rookie Tavon Austin has gotten most of the attention, but Givens is the Rams receiver I want this year.
For now, Nicks is healthy. That's a great thing for his fantasy owners, who should enjoy it while it lasts. He'll reward them this week.
Floyd dodged a bullet this preseason, and is actually a solid backup receiver who should start when bye weeks begin. He'll score the Chargers' lone touchdown this week.
You can pretty much bet on Moore for about seven or eight productive fantasy games a year, but it's hard to know which ones they'll be. This will be one of them. Get him in your lineup.
Jackson rejuvenated his career by leaving San Diego for Tampa Bay last year. He'll get his 2013 season off on the right foot.
Jones may be the third receiver on the depth chart, but Aaron Rodgers clearly trusts him in the red zone. That will pay off right away this season.
Green will pick up right where he left off last season, at least in the scoring department. Charles Tillman will give him fits most of the afternoon, though.
After riding a roller coaster his first two seasons, Bryant emerged as an elite receiver in 2012. He'll be in the top tier for a long time to come.
He slowed down as the year progressed, but Wayne experienced a renaissance with Andrew Luck at the helm next season. The future Hall of Famer remains a weekly starter.
Welker begins his Broncos career in true Welker fashion: 11 catches, 97 yards, with all but three of his catches resulting in first downs. His PPR owners are smiling.
Shorts burst on the scene in 2012 and should be starting in most leagues Week 1. He and Justin Blackmon could make a very nice receiver duo for a good quarterback.
Thompkins generated a ton of buzz this preseason, and he'll carry that right over into Week 1. Those of you in deeper leagues might want to get him into your lineups.
The Dolphins signed Wallace to be the deep threat they need to stretch the field and give Ryan Tannehill the opportunity to make big plays. He has been a WR2 in the past, and could be again this season.
Sanders could slide into the Antonio Brown role from last year, but he's not really worth rostering just yet. Keep an eye on how his role in the offense develops.
Cobb is a PPR monster, but I feel he was overdrafted this season. Both Jordy Nelson and James Jones will score more touchdowns than him.
Even with Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks in the lineup, Randle will get enough snaps to make an impact. You can't start him this week, but he should be universally owned.
Streater elevated himself last year to a decent option when bye weeks hit, but he's no more than that. In the Raiders' offense, it's even a challenge to trust him in that role.
Jennings is going to learn awfully quick just how nice he had it playing with Aaron Rodgers. He won't be one of the 30 best fantasy receivers this year.
Britt has all the potential in the world, but he's going to have to convert that into something sooner or later if he's going to be a realistic option in fantasy leagues. I'm not holding my breath.
Kerley emerged as the Jets' top option in the passing game, but as long as he's catching passes from Geno Smith or Mark Sanchez, he's not a realistic fantasy option, except in very deep leagues.
Jeffery is a nice sleeper this season, but he should be on your bench this week. He'll look promising this week, though, connecting with Cutler on one pass of more than 20 yards.
Boldin moved from the Super Bowl winner to the Super Bowl loser, and brought some much-needed receiving ability with him to San Francisco. Against the Packers, he'll look like the fringe fantasy starter he is.
Avery may prove deserving of a fantasy roster spot as the season wears on, but for now let him sit on the free agent scrap heap.
Hill flashed some skills as a rookie last year, but you're not going to want to be involved with this passing game.
It'll be interesting to see what the Rams do with Austin now that they'll break out the whole playbook. The track record for rookie receivers is not encouraging, though.
Heyward-Bey may end up as a decent depth receiver if the Indianapolis offense takes off this year. He's worth owning in deep leagues.
Rice and Golden Tate are back in the 1 and 1a spots for Russell Wilson with Percy Harvin out. That makes both of them fringe starters.
Broyles could end up being a lottery ticket who pays huge this year, though he's not someone you want to start Week 1. The Lions desperately need someone to step up alongside Calvin Johnson.
Like teammate Malcom Floyd, Brown is worth having around as a backup. You don't want him in your lineup this week.
Baldwin won't register when Percy Harvin returns, but he could have a role in the offense for the first few weeks of the season. He's still not worth owning in fantasy leagues, though.
Hartline was Ryan Tannehill's favorite receiver last year, as the Ohio State product went for more than 1,000 yards in 2012. He could have another below-the-radar season.
If another fantasy-relevant receiver develops alongside Garcon, my bet is it will be Morgan. I'll believe it when I see it, though.
Roberts will get squeezed by Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd this season. Stay away from him in fantasy leagues.
Who among us hasn't owned Washington as a fifth wide receiver at some point during our fantasy careers? He'll reprise that role again this year and is not worth starting this week.
Gibson's signing didn't receive the same fanfare as Mike Wallace's, but he could be a very important piece in this offense. He may be a factor when bye weeks hit.
No reason to even consider Hawkins until the bye weeks start coming. He'll essentially be shut down against the Bears.
A bad offense with a rookie at the helm? Yeah, that's not exactly the environent in which Graham is going to break through.
Full PPR owners should consider McCluster, especially given the West Coast offense Andy Reid brought to Kansas City.
Moore has showed flashes in the past, but if he was going to have any consistency we likely would have seen it by now. You can't start a receiver on this team.
Hopkins is a prime lottery ticket this season. You won't want to start him this week, but he will come in handy down the road.
Patterson is a rookie with speed to burn. You don't want to get tied up with Minnesota's passing game, but watch how they deploy the rookie. He could be worth a cheap pickup later this season.
Little is no more than a depth receiver, but even at that cheap price he's not a guy I want. We likely would have seen more success from him by now if it were going to happen.
I think Sanu has all sorts of sleeper potential this season, but it won't show in Week 1. Look elsewhere.
Avant is worth owning as a depth guy in deep leagues, but he shouldn't be anywhere near your starting lineup.
Cooper makes an appearance in the projections this week, but chances are he isn't owned in most leagues. And he shouldn't be.
This isn't a week you want Wright in your lineup. Unless disaster strikes, you shouldn't be considering him until teams start having their bye weeks.
Patton had a decent preseason, but he isn't worth owning in fantasy leagues until we see what he does when the games count.
Edelman isn't a fantasy option until he proves otherwise. He shouldn't be on your roster
Sanders will get a decent amount of playing time while Justin Blackmon is suspended, but he doesn't deserve any burn in fantasy leagues.
LaFell is worth having around as a depth receiver, but chances are you won't want to use him as anything more than a bye-week replacement this season.
It's hard to break into the New Orleans' offense. If one of the receivers goes down, Stills could be a fantasy factor, but he won't be until then.
Simpson isn't even a depth receiver at this point. If you find yourself starting him, it probably means you're in serious trouble.
Burleson is not worth owning this year. If any lottery ticket hits in Detroit, it will likely be Ryan Broyles.
Bess could be a bye-week replacement on the right team. Cleveland is not the right team.
