7. Larry Fitzgerald, Arizona Cardinals

Fitzgerald used to put up insane numbers and was considered to be a top-3 receiver in the league but age has slowly begun to creep up on him. His numbers have dipped a bit but I still expect him to get his 1000 yards receiving and a few touchdowns to go on top of that. With several different targets rising up in Arizona, the ceiling for Fitzgerald this year will only be 1000 yards receiving and 10 touchdowns. Still not a bad ceiling by any stretch.

6. Andre Johnson, Houston Texans

Similar to Fitzgerald, Johnson is getting up there in age. Unlike Fitzgerald, though, Houston does not have any other formidable receivers for their quarterback to throw the ball to. Johnson is still the guy in Houston. The only concern is who is playing at quarterback. Most likely, Ryan Fitzpatrick, and that should not excite any fantasy owners out there. Still, regardless of who is at quarterback, expect the usual big numbers out of Johnson. Safe for at least 1200 receiving yards and 8 touchdowns.

5. Julio Jones, Atlanta Falcons

Jones was having an incredible year at wide receiver, last season, before a broken foot ended his season. The Falcons were horrible last year but this was definitely not because of Jones. It was a collection of issues so say the least. If Jones comes back fully healthy and ready to go, expect Matt Ryan to throw him the rock a lot this year and expect tremendous numbers for your fantasy team. If healthy, 1300 receiving yards and 8 touchdowns is a safe bet.
