  • If you want to buy shares in the Broncos passing game, Demaryius Thomas is the best player to target not named Peyton Manning. Much like the other receivers around him, the only thing that could depress his value would be an injury. 
  • Vincent Jackson may not be as consistent on weekly basis as some of the receivers ranked above him, but he always seems to be undervalued on draft day. Jackson has a better quarterback this season, who won't be afraid to throw the ball up and let him make plays downfield. 
  • Percy Harvin may be the most difficult player to draft this year. Will he stay healthy? Will he get enough targets in Seattle? If the answer to these questions is yes, then he could turn out to be a fantasy WR1. 
  • Veterans Marques Colston and Reggie Wayne are going to make excellent fantasy WR3s. Both players have at least one more solid year left in them. 
  • Justin Hunter's four-catch, 111-yard, two-touchdown game in Week 2 of the preseason was glimpse into the future. The only question is whether the future is now. 
  • Jordan Matthews is going to have big games this season. It may not be every week, but it will be often enough that he will be well worth a late-round selection. 
  • If the Raiders' leading receiver is something that interests you for fantasy, that player is going to be Rod Streater in 2014.
