2012 Fantasy Football Wide Receiver Projections
August 16, 2012 | Jeff
08/28 Update: More preseason action means more movement in the projections of fake football’s pass catchers…
Wes Welker: I still believe Welker will be a solid option this season, but he was lowered slightly in the continuing tinkering of New England’s WR/TE projections.
Torrey Smith: Smith is going to be awesome this season, so get him where you can. The young Raven has been great this preseason and the sky is the limit for his production.
Austin Collie: The Colts claim Collie will be ready for week 1, which seems both impossible and insane. Very risky, but a worthy risk in PPR leagues in case he can stay healthy.
Justin Blackmon: Blackmon has looked great this preseason, and is a nice late round pick. Gabbert seems to trust the rookie quite a bit thus far.
Kendall Wright: Like Blackmon, I have been grabbing Wright late in drafts. Britt will be out for a bit, leaving some open looks for Wright. Solid upside is always nice.
The Great Julio Jones: Twitter’s favorite athlete received a small bump below. I am not ready to call him the 2nd best receiver in the NFL, but after watching him this preseason, it’s not crazy to think he could end up there relatively soon. Atlanta is going to be awfully fun to watch this season.
