  1. Aaron Rodgers
  2. Tom Brady
  3. Drew Brees
  4. Robert Griffin III – I can’t wait to hear the “teams will adjust to him” and “he’s an injury risk”  stuff that people said about Cam Newton.  About Griffin, they will be wrong.
  5. Peyton Manning
  6. Matthew Stafford
  7. Cam Newton
  8. Andrew Luck – He’ll only get better.
  9. Matt Ryan
  10. Colin Kaepernick – This could be construed as “all in.”
  11. Eli Manning
  12. Ben Roethlisberger
Honorable Mention: Tony Romo, Russell Wilson, Josh Freeman, Andy Dalton
Spiller has 2009 Chris Johnson ("CJ2K") potential

Running Backs
  1. Arian Foster
  2. Adrian Peterson – There aren’t enough words to describe how amazing his comeback is.
  3. Doug Martin
  4. Ray Rice
  5. Trent Richardson – Cleveland is a sneaky-attractive landing spot for new coaches and GMs as they have a lot of nice pieces in place along both lines.
  6. LeSean McCoy
  7. Marshawn Lynch
  8. C.J. Spiller – Getting him at RB8 could end up a huge bargain.
  9. Stevan Ridley
  10. Alfred Morris – The Shana-clan won’t get into any shenanigans with him.
  11. Jamaal Charles
  12. Again looking like the guy we know he can be

  13. Chris Johnson
  14. Maurice Jones-Drew – Obviously, this assumes perfect health.
  15. DeMarco Murray
  16. Matt Forte
  17. Ahmad Bradshaw
  18. BenJarvus Green-Ellis
  19. Frank Gore
  20. Mikel LeShoure – He’s ranked 21st right now and missed multiple games early.
  21. Jonathan Dwyer
  22. Shonn Greene
  23. Reggie Bush
  24. Ryan Mathews – Maybe a new coach and GM will help matters.
  25. Darren McFadden – I so badly wanted to drop these last two guys out of the rankings.
Honorable Mention: Willis McGahee, Steven Jackson, Fred Jackson, Darren Sproles
Wide Receivers
  1. Calvin Johnson
  2. A.J. Green
  3. Brandon Marshall
  4. Dez Bryant – Standing by what I said in this tweetwhich was a response expanding on this tweet.  No one agreed that the currently white-hot Bryant would be top-three, and many didn’t agree that he’d be top-five.
  5. Demaryius Thomas
  6. Julio Jones
  7. Percy Harvin – Here’s hoping he doesn’t go through a long hold-out while attempting to re-negotiate the last year in his rookie deal.
  8. Victor Cruz
  9. Reggie Wayne
  10. Vincent Jackson
  11. Marques Colston
  12. Roddy White
  13. Nothing I've seen in the last two weeks tells me he shouldn't be ranked high.

  14. Pierre Garcon – This may seem high now, but wait until you see him play the last month of the season.
  15. Andre Johnson
  16. Hakeem Nicks
  17. Randall Cobb – They’ll gear more for him next year, and Greg Jennings is a free agent after this season.
  18. Wes Welker
  19. Miles Austin
  20. Torrey Smith
  21. Antonio Brown – The only thing between him and being a WR1 is red zone presence.
  22. Eric Decker
  23. Jordy Nelson
  24. Mike Williams
  25. Mike Wallace – I don’t expect him to be with Pittsburgh, so this is a bit of a hedge because I don’t know where he’ll end up.
  26. Lance Moore
  27. Stevie Johnson
  28. Steve Smith
  29. Sidney Rice
  30. Jeremy Maclin
  31. Danario Alexander – Will he stay healthy?
  32. Michael Crabtree
  33. Emmanuel Sanders – As I said above, I assume Sanders will be starting for Pittsburgh next season.
  34. Dwayne Bowe
  35. Cecil Shorts – This year’s “darling” WR story won’t be a WR2 for the whole season as long as the Henne-Gabbert combo are throwing to him.
  36. Kenny Britt
  37. Josh Gordon
Honorable Mention: DeSean Jackson, Golden Tate, Denarius Moore, Justin Blackmon, Danny Amendola
He's STILL the #1 TE this year by a pretty good margin

Tight Ends
  1. Rob Gronkowski
  2. Jimmy Graham
  3. Aaron Hernandez
  4. Tony Gonzalez
  5. Jason Witten

  7. Owen Daniels
  8. Greg Olsen
  9. Jermaine Gresham
  10. Vernon Davis
  11. Kyle Rudolph
  12. Fred Davis – This assumes a healthy return with Washington.
