5.  Hakeem Nicks
6.  Reggie Wayne

8.  Greg Jennings
9.  Dwayne Bowe
10. Brandon Marshall
11. Wes Welker
12. Marques Colston
13. Dez Bryant
14. Jeremy Macklin
15. Mike Williams
16. Steve Johnson
17. Mike Wallace
18. DeSean Jackson
19. Kenny Britt
20. Austin Collie
21. Brandon Lloyd
22. Chad Ochocinco
23. Vincent Jackson
24. Anquan Boldin
25. Santana Moss
26. Percy Harvin
27. Santonio Holmes
28. Roy Williams
29. Julio Jones
30. Mario Manningham
31. Mike Sims-Walker
32. AJ Green
32. Jerome Simpson

-You really cant go wrong with any of the top four guys but those in PPR have to drop Megatron down behind the other three.  As great as Calvin Johnson is, he has never been a big time receptions guy unlike Fitzgerald, White, and Andre Johnson. 
-It will be interesting to see what happens with White with Julio Jones on the other side.  On the one hand, Jones could open up the field more for bigger plays by White but on the other hand, White could see fewer catches as a result of Jones' presence.  Either way both should be very useful to fantasy football owners this season, with White being as good as you can get.
-Mario Manningham is a name to watch as the Steve Smith void will have to be filled by someone and he is best equipped to do so.  Manningham did some big things in place of Smith last season and he could be a big time guy this season in the Giants' passing offense.
-Austin Collie is one of the biggest risk/reward guys in fantasy football.  If you draft him, make sure you have a good backup.  The person in my league who drafted him backed him up with Pierre Garcon.  Thats the perfect handcuff so do the same.
-I still think Chad Ochocinco is in for a big time year with Tom Brady at QB.  Just remember the Randy Moss story when he came over looking washed up from Oakland. 
-I am really high on Miles Austin now that Tony Romo is back healthy.  He was on a ridiculously good pace last season before Romo got hurt and I expect they will rekindle their chemistry this season. 

Thats all for now.  Keep checking back for more updates as we go through the season.
