Sleepers: Ernest Wilford & Michael Clayton

(Last season, Wilford became a favorite target of Jaguar QB Byron Leftwich. Expect more of the same from these two in the upcoming season. Clayton is developing very rapidly, and it’s just a matter of time before he’s considered to be in the upper echelon of WR’s in the NFL.)

Busts: Laveranues Coles & Muhsin Muhammad

(Both the Jets and the Bears only have one premier WR in their offensive arsenal. Both teams have quarterback problems, so don’t expect too many yards and TD’s from either of these guys. Muhammad saw lots of double-teams last year, so I’d expect more of the same as the Bears haven’t addressed their offensive problems. Coles and Muhammad are both fantastic WR’s and athletes, but their teams just won’t be able to utilize them to their full potential.)

Best Values: Chris Chambers, Andre Johnson, & Keenan McCardell

(If you can secure any of these players in the middle rounds, then they are good buys for your fantasy team. Chambers and McCardell will give you a consistent effort, and you pretty much know what to expect. Andre Johnson could have a huge season this year, which would make him a steal as your 2nd WR.)

Break-Out Season: Randy Moss

(It feels weird saying this, but Moss is ready to break out of his injuries, and step up on the field for the Raiders. The team around him this year is much better, and with Randy Moss at 100%, look out: he is one of the best, if not the best WR in the whole game of football.)
