Britt is someone I thinkhas all the talent in the world, but he also has a 10 cent head and can't seem to avoid injuries.

Julio Jones, even in ppr, has to rank higher than Roddy White. Jones is a potential stud in the line of Fitzgerald and Megatron. If he stays healthy, it will be like when Torry Holt passed Isaac Bruce in St. Louis back in the days of the Greatest Show on Turf.

Not sure about why Jennings is ranked so much higher than Nelson. Jennings was tearing it up to start the season, but by the time he got injured, Nelson had tied him in TD's and had just barely passed him in yards. The catches weren't equal, but after the bye week 8, and up until Jennings got injured, Nelson had 2 more receptions so he was pulling even.

I could just be clinging to a player (Nelson) I pegged for the breakout last year when everyone was still talking James Jones. Sentiment is a hard thing to shake sometimes.

You have Vincent Jackson listed twice at 19 and 21. Who did you mean at one of those spots instead of him? If I had to guess I'd say DeMaryius Thomas? That would be about right for him, but I think Decker may be just as valueable. Just a gut feeling on my part with Decker over Thomas though.

21 Is Demaryius Thomas. I think he has a skill set that is above Decker. Jordy Nelson has had a breakout season, but I don't see it happening again. I think defenses adjust and the TE Finley has a better season than last.

I kept Hakeem Nicks over Mike Wallace. I think Antonio Brown's emergence plus his hold out would make Wallace drop even more than I have him. But I am usually on the conservative side.

I have Nicks, but I also want Julio Jones this year. I also really like Jeremy Maclin and Brandon Marshall. Demaryius Thomas is going to be a break out guy. When he was a prospect, he was talked about with talent compared to Calvin Johnson. I like Mike Williams from TB to bounce back especially with VJax drawing the def. Last Titus Young could also put up big numbers in Det. These are my targets.

Marshall has the skills, including a string of five, 1000 yard seasons. Hopefully he can get enough balls his way this year in CHI, as they seem to have a legit WR.

If KC has really committed to rush the ball 500 times this season, I might drop Bowe a big further down. I would also bump Victor Cruz up, came on with a strong showing last season and if Nicks isn't quite ready, Cruz will be seeing more targets early in the season.

That's a good point about KC. I think the only reason I had Bowe so high was he's in a contract year.
