Larry Fitzgerald is a receiver who can get you 1,300 and 10 in 2011

 

by Inside the Redzone staff – JF and Bill Seng

 

1. Andre Johnson, Hou – Johnson took a little bit of a hit last year when he had a nagging high ankle sprain that affected him all season.  He continues to connect frequently with Schaub, making him a PPR stud at 101 reception average over the last three seasons.  Arian Foster will help to keep defenses honest and Johnson will continue to put up big numbers.

2. Roddy White, Atl – Roddy could/should be listed as 1b on this list.  In 2010 he grabbed 115 passes on his way to 1,300 yards and 10 touchdowns.  With Rookie Julio Jones on the other side of the field look for Roddy to see more single coverage and more targets in the red zone.

3. Calvin Johnson, Det – Megatron is one of the most physically dominant receivers in the game.  The biggest question mark is if Stafford can stay upright the whole season.  If so, Megatron, who already has two 10+ touchdown seasons, could put up huge numbers.

4. Hakeem Nicks, NYG – He became Eli’s #1 target last year.  Nicks put up over 1,000 yards and 11 touchdowns last year in 14 games.  Look for Nicks to continue to be Eli’s go to receiver this year and expand on his totals from 2010.

5. Vincent Jackson, SD – VJax has looked like a beast this preseason, ready to make a jump to the elite. Putting aside his contract extension and getting on better terms with management, he’ll have more focus on the 2011 season. He is the central piece for the Chargers aerial attack.

6. Larry Fitzgerald, Ari – With Kevin Kolb now on the team, it finally gives Arizona a quality QB since Kurt Warner.  The person happiest with this move will be Fitzgerald.  The only thing is Breaston went to KC and they will now have to rely on Doucet to pick up the slack.  The Cardinals need to add another weapon at WR to take some of the pressure off of Fitz.

7. Greg Jennings, GB – Jennings has been a focal point in the Green Bay offense.  The only problem is not with Jennings but how Aaron Rodgers likes to spread the football.  Rodgers does a great job finding other receivers and doesn’t throw to Jennings when he is being double team, unlike the old grey ghost, Brett Favre.

8. Mike Wallace, Pit – Wallace has turned into Big Ben’s go to big play receiver.  Hines Ward is still the possession option, but when the Steelers need a game changer, they look for Wallace.  Look for Wallace to get more touches and raise his value an uptick in PPR leagues.

9. Miles Austin, Dal – The connection that Austin has with Romo will only continue to grow.  Jason Garrett’s offense is a pass first.  Look for Austin and Bryant to have some big numbers this year as Tony Romo could lead the league in passing attempts.

10. DeSean Jackson, Phi – Like Wallace, Jackson is a big home run hitter for the Eagles.  Just think back to the Giants game last year.  With Vick throwing to Jackson, Maclin and Steve Smith to go along with McCoy, the Eagles have one of the most dynamic offenses in the NFL.

11. Reggie Wayne, Ind – Wayne has been “Mr. Consistent” over the years.  When you have Peyton Manning (even for 14 regular season games), 2010’s completion leaders, as the quarterback, you know the top dog receivers will put up some good numbers.

12. Dwayne Bowe, KC – Bowe is a big target for Matt Cassel.  With Jamaal Charles taking some of the focus off the passing game and the addition if Steve Breaston, Bowe will have some extra room to work with.  Look for solid numbers from Bowe this year.
