Who should you be targeting at WR?


The wide receiver position is super deep this year as the evolution of the NFL has resulted in more spread offense and more total plays during game due to the increased tempo.  In addition, the NFL is enhancing the freedom of receivers by emphasizing the enforcement of illegal contact that occurs five yards past the line of scrimmage.  A few guys that we are particularly bullish on include Jordy Nelson, Percy Harvin, Jeremy Maclin, Riley Cooper, Wes Welker, and rookie Kelvin Benjamin.  Jordy Nelson is coming into the season healthy and should be a major beneficiary of a depleted receiving core as the Packers have lost James Jones and Jermichael Finley along with Greg Jennings the year before.  Jordy is Rodgers favorite target and all signs point to him having a monster season.  Maclin and Nelson also seem very underrated considering the Chip Kelly offense and the absence of DeSean Jackson.  Wes Welker should benefit from having a season with Peyton Manning under his belt and the absence of Eric Decker.  Who is gonna catch the ball for the Panthers other than Benjamin?  The table below provides some predictions for production, players are ranked by total points.  Points are projected assuming standard scoring.
