There was some major shuffling this offseason and fantasy favorites Wes Welker and Mike Wallace are strapping on new helmets. Welker goes to a crowded, yet SUPER talented, Broncos team and will either hurt his own value as well as Eric Decker and Demaryius Thomas or Peyton Manning is going to have the best season of his long career and each of these guys will finish in the top 7 again. My guess would be that each player loses a bit of value. But not enough to keep you away from them. As far as Mike Wallace, it will be interesting to see how he and Ryan Tannehill develop. With an unknown run game in Miami, with Reggie Bush now a Lion, teams might focus on Wallace and hit him with double teams. I am not a fan of his this season, but talent always wins...draft with caution.Randall Cobb should be able to reproduce his numbers from last season with the retirement of Donald Driver and the departure of Greg Jennings, now a member of the Minnesota Vikings. Another career move I disagree with, but the way the Vikings run the ball, if Jennings and Christian Ponder can get on the same page, there is a ton of potential there. James Jones and Jordy Nelson could switch roles again with Nelson catching all the TDs this year. Other notable WRs wearing a new helmet this season: Anquan Boldin (49ers)Derrius Heyward-Bey (Colts)Mohamed Massquoi (Jaguars)Josh Cribbs (Raiders)Josh Gordon will miss the 1st two games of the regular season for violating the NFL substance abuse policy.* - New Team ** - Rookie*** - Sleeper1.) Calvin Johnson - Detroit Lions Can you actually do better than the single greatest season ever by a wide receiver? As it pertains to fantasy football, the answer is a resounding "YES!". Calvin Johnson is the best WR in football and yet only managed five touchdowns last season. With a ridiculous 204 targets resulting in 122 receptions, how is that number even possible. Expecting that paltry sum to double is definitely in the confines of reasonable thought. The idea of topping his record setting 1,964 yards is a bit far-fetched, however reaching his previous three season average of 1,588 is practically a given. There is only one route runner that should even be considered a 1st round option. Megatron is that man. Or is he? - @Miller_WeTalkFS 2.) A.J. Green - Cincinnati Bengals3.)

Danny Amendola *- New England PatriotsDanny Amendola is used to being the ONLY option on offense, but is not used to a Hall of Fame QB getting the ball to him. If Amendola stays healthy this season, he could easily catch over 100 passes. It is unfortunate for him that he is Wes Welker's doppelganger, because the media and fans will be expecting him to duplicate his numbers. He deserves the benefit of the doubt here as it wasn't very often and definitely not 6 weeks in a row that Welker would lineup without Aaron Hernandez and/or Rob Gronkowski next to him. - @WeTlkFntsySprts19.)
