8. Greg Jennings,Green Bay Packers
Jenningsis in a very similar situation to Colston. He has an elite quarterback (Aaron Rodgers) delivering him the ball, but works in an offense where the ball is distributed around a good deal. Still, Jennings has great hands and speed and is still one of the best deep threats in the NFL. I believe that this year, Jennings will get a couple of those TD receptions back from Jordy Nelson.
2012 Projection: 1,164 receiving yards, 11 TD’s – 182 points
7. Wes Welker, New England Patriots
As probably the best possession receiver in the league, Welker fits in perfectly with the explosive offense of New England. He may not put up huge touchdown numbers each year, but he is good for over 100 receptions and plenty of yards to go along with them. He is mainly best for PPR leagues, but still is ranked highly in this standard scoring list.
2012 Projection: 1,412 receiving yards, 8 TD’s – 189 points
